Two-Year Blogoversary Celebration and Giveaway!

IT'S MY TWO-YEAR BLOGOVERSARY!





Woohoo! Two years feels like a long time, and yet, no time at all. A lot has happened in two years, and in the last year specifically. 2014 and I have not agreed on most accounts, and I can safely say that it was my worst year yet, blogging/academics/personal/family/otherwise. But I really could not have made it through the year without so many incredible people, events, actions, gestures, kind words. As cliche as that sounds, it's so true.


(All gifs came from HERE.)


Like last year... I'd like to do my Grammys/Oscars/Academy Awards Thank You Speech. But first, let me share with you some blogging milestones/achievements that I have hit over the two years of blogging.

- 1100+ published posts
- 320,000 pageviews
- Nearly 5000 total blog followers
- Over 400 reviews published
- A new Facebook account - with over 2,400 fans
- Have not missed a day of posting... at all. Yet. Ever. 


People. Thank you all, every one of you, who followed my blog, viewed a post, commented, tweeted, pinned, posted, liked, favorited, etc. I see every interaction, and I respond to all of them, and I love them. I love you all. With such a demanding academic career, it's easy to see why blogging and reviewing and reading is so important to me - my escape. So, thank you all for being here.


My IRL peeps: my parents, my sister Lily, my friends at home, my friends from Hopkins (Nicole, Christina, Matthew, Bria, Sophia), my amazing roommates/friends Adrienne and Janay, my gilipollas boy (who caused me so much grief this year, but I had to include him here for certain reasons) ---- THANK YOU.

My blogging buddies: Pili, Danielle, Nikki, Liza, Kel, Carina, Jess, Jess, JessKelly, LiliNereyda, Rachel, Rachel ---- you all are a pleasure to know, work with, chat with. Personally, I'm sorry for not making more of an effort to make my presence more known, beyond the blog! But you all are always here, or on Twitter, supporting me. *hugs* Special shout-out to my soccer-loving Twitter buddy and fellow engineer Juhina, and fellow tennis and soccer fan, Racquel! *squishes*

Specifically to Pili - we both had a difficult year, for very similar reasons. Every time I needed to talk, she was there. IS there. I know she has my back, regardless of the situation. There definitely were times when I needed here opinion and support, and she always delivered. Thank you! Words cannot express the gratitude! Different countries and time zones have nothing on our friendship! :)

To the authors, publishers, publicists, editors, reviewers, bloggers, booksellers, librarians, and anyone involved in the literary world - you all rock. And I like you a lot. I respect the heck out of anyone who devotes time and passion to something as simple yet crucial as reading. THANK YOU.

And finally... I'm cutting and pasting this from my post last year because it hasn't changed: thank you to all of you. Every single person clicked on a link to my blog, or read a review on my blog or Goodreads or Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or commented on my blog, or entered a giveaway, or tweeted at me, or retweeted my promotional tweets, or did SOMETHING for me... thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, and hope that one day, your kind deeds will be repaid. Blogging is NEVER easy when you don't have an audience. And I may not be the most popular blogger out there, but I love all of you who read and support my blog. *huggles*


The Giveaway:

You've survived my speech! I think it was slightly shorter than last year's, but I hope it felt just as meaningful and sincere. 

So, for the giveaway prize. I have this giant box of ARCs. I have no idea how many ARCs there will be in this box - I'll just grab a box and fill it. Probably more than ten. This giveaway is open to ANYONE - USA, Canada, Bhutan, Venezuela, wherever. Void where prohibited and whatnot (see Rafflecopter for more terms and conditions).

Also, the lovely publicist at Disney-Hyperion has offered a couple of prizes! One winner will win one copy of The Darkest Minds, Never Fade, and In the Afterlight. Another winner will win one copy of Dark Metropolis, and one copy of The Ring and the Crown. Both prizes may involve a mix of finished hardcover and paperback copies. USA and Canada ONLY. USA and Canada residents may enter all three giveaways, if they so choose.

So, three winners total! The giant box of books is open to ANYONE, the next two giveaways open to USA and Canada residents ONLY. Which means that USA and Canada residents may enter ALL THREE giveaways. 

Read the GIVEAWAYS page and/or the Terms and Conditions in the Rafflecopter. Good luck! And THANK YOU!

Giveaway #1 - a giant box of books! (Open to anyone)


Giveaway #2 - The Darkest MindsNever Fade, and In the Afterlight (mix of HC and PB - open to USA/Canada)

And I just realized, this marks a year since I met you (online) because I first stumbled onto your blog during your first blogoversary giveaway. It's been great chatting with you this year, and I hope 2015 brings you lots of fun, friends, good grades, and smiley things in general. :)

    And in the new year, I'm looking forward to my first BEA! And maybe a day of BookCon. We'll see how dead I am by Saturday. ;)

So I hope its going to be wonderful. The only thing that has gotten me through this horrible time is books. So thank you so much for everything your sharing. It means the world.

    One of the things I always look up to is New authors. New authors, new books, new series by new and known-to-me authors, and sometimes the bittersweet end of a series. 2014 was very sad because many series and trilogies ended :( .

  119. Happy blogoversary! I just discovered and followed your blog. This year, I'm looking forward to figuring out a plan for college (I.e. What am I majoring in? Where am I going? What am I going to do with the rest of my life?). I also look forward to growing my little blog, at ireadtilldawn.blogspot.com. I just got serious about it this past October, and I want to gradually get more readers and post more often throughout the year.

  128. Oh my, you never missed a day blogging in two years?!! There should be an award for that like the perfect attendance students get in school. Ha ha, I bumble around when I have more than two posts to get done in a week!! You have made monumental accomplishments for two years blogging. I guess hard work does pay off (I should be taking notes). Congratulations!!!! I am looking forward to the sequels to Queen of the Tearling, Gates of Thread and Stone, and Of Breakable Things. Thanks for such a STELLAR contest and thank-you to Disney-Hyperion for supplying the prizes to this giveaway!

  132. The one thing that I'm looking forward to this year, is the year that I make myself happy instead of relying on other's to do that for me. I'm also hoping that my volunteer clerical work and activities at the nursing facility where my mother works is going to turn into a possible job as well. If it doesn't that's okay because I still enjoy volunteering and helping out, but if it does then it will make me really happy.

    Congrats on your wonderful blogoversary, it's a wonderful milestone for you and thank you for giving me the chane to win. :)
