CHECK THIS OUT! An Amazing Blogging First is Achieved!

GUESS WHAT I GOT TODAY!!!!

Ready, ready, ready?!

AHHHHH!!!!!!!!! 

FEAST YOUR EYES!!!!



MY FIRST EVER ARC STRAIGHT FROM THE PUBLISHER!!!! MY FIRST TWO ARCS!!!

(PRINT ARCs, guys. Not eARCs. I've been getting eARCs since my first month of blogging).

And if any of you know anything about Disney Hyperion, it's that they don't send ARCs to just anyone. I read an article where Disney Hyperion has basically stopped accepting most review requests, especially to new requesters (like me). You experienced bloggers, with like, two years under your belt, have better success with them.

Well. Clearly they accepted mine! I submitted one request for these two on FRIDAY, May 3rd. That was so fast!

And guys. Get this.

I'VE ONLY BEEN BLOGGING FOR FOUR MONTHS!!! 

So, thank you ALL, for following me, and viewing my blog, and commenting on my posts. Without you lovely followers and visitors, I wouldn't have gotten my first ARC, and my second ARC, straight from the publisher. From one of the most selective publishers!

I actually passed a ton of blogging firsts in the passed four months, so that means something big is going to happen very, very soon. *Cough* giveaway *cough*

AHHHHH!!!!! :D

  7. Congrats!! That's awesome! I know it's hard to get ARCs from Disney Hyperion, but didn't realize that they never send them out!

    Think I do get them on Netgalley though if I request. But yay for you!! It took ages before I ever got my first ARC, but was still happy when I got mine. Still get happy when I get one...be it physical or digital!

    Happy Reading!! :D

    1. Not NEVER. But yeah, I rely on NetGalley as well. And I'm talking physical ARCs here, not digital.

  8. OMG!! You are so lucky. How are doing this? How did you get so many followers in 4 months? I started blogging this January and I have only 133 followers... I'm doing everything I can to make the numbers grow, but they grow too slowly...
    Congratulations!! I hope you'll enjoy these two pretties (:

    1. Commenting, girl. every meme I do (WoW, Swoon, FF, and STS), I comment A LOT. It works! And attracts followers. Thank you!

  9. Congratulations!!! I am SO happy for you! Disney seems like... super exclusive with their ARCs. It kind of seems like once you get one, they totally open up to you. But it takes a lot just to get one! So, congrats!

    These Broken Stars looks amazing! :)

  17. Wonderful. Amazing. Congratulations.
    I've gotten a couple of theirs from Edelweiss/NetGalley. But, they've turned down many of my requests for eARCS, so I'd not have the nerve to ask for print ones.
    Hopefully, now that you have a foot in the door with them, it will be easier in the future.

    1. Thank you! I don't think I've requested anything on NetGalley or Edelweiss from Disney Hyperion. Never got the chance, I suppose. I hope it will be easier! That's a good thought :)
