So, yes today is my one year blog-o-versary and boy has this year flown by. So much has happened in my life as well as in the blogging community. We stuck together and fought for a cover change for both Liar and Magic Under the Glass. There have also been some not so savory things happening in the blog-o-sphere (but let us not think of such things). This is a day of celebration. I am so excited to still be blogging after 12 long months. I currently have 227 followers and that is amazing. I am so thankful that so many people care about my opinion of books and want to share their opinions with me. I have discovered many amazing new authors and books since I have been blogging, some of which I don't think I would have heard about otherwise. I have met so many amazing people who, like me, share a passion for books and reading and talking about books.
I have seen a lot of people post about some of their firsts during their blog-o-versary post so I guess I could do a few.
First Review: Why I Let My Hair Grow Out - Maryrose Wood
My First Author Interview: Stephanie Kuehnert
My First Giveaway: Ballads of Suburbia with Stephanie Kuehnert
My First Waiting on Wednesday: Going Bovine - Libba Bray
My First Teaser Tuesday: The Nature of Jade - Deb Caletti
and my first In My Mailbox
That's good enough eh? Oh yeah I mentioned a contest didn't I.... hmmm well let's see what we have here.
Twelve ARCs hmmm well that's good...for now. So this is how it all goes down.
As of right now I will have three winners.
Winner #1 receives 2 books pictured above(they pick) and maybe one or two (still undecided) prints from Marta Bevacqua (also your pick, as long as she has them for sale).
Winner #2 receives 1 book pictures above and a print from Marta (you pick both)
Winner #3 receives 1 book from above
Now to enter go to Marta's website here and comment below with the title of your favorite picture(the titles are above the picture on the right) and leave a way for me to contact you. That is all you need to do to gain entry.

So, I have also decided that as I get more followers I will add more books and more winners(maybe I'll even post what books I'm adding as I add them! GADZOOKS!). I may also add a winner for my favorite song/poem?!?! Who knows?!?!? Maybe I'll think of other great prizes(if you look at my IMM tomorrow you'll see one of the great prizes I'm thinking of giving away).
