One Year Blogoversary/About Me

I can't believe that I've been blogging for a year! To be honest, I can't even remember what it was like before I had this little book blog. There are a lot of people I want to thank. Firstly, thanks to all the other amazing bloggers that really are such a bunch of awesome individuals! You're all so nice and friendly not to mention I love squeeing over books with all of you. ;) It's so nice to find other people who love reading and who love YA books just as much as I do. Secondly, thanks to all of my amazing followers and anyone who has ever commented on any one of my posts! I can't believe that 232 people actually care about what I have to say.  That's pure craziness. And of course, thanks to all the amazing authors who have acknowledged my existence. You still intimidate me beyond belief haha.

Also, thanks to anyone who has ever given me an award. I'm not the best at posting them but I just wanted to say that I really do appreciate them & that I keep and save them all on my computer. :D

I actually started blogging one year ago today because I was so tired of not having anyone to share my thoughts and feelings on books with. I remember reading Perfect Chemistry and wanting to gush over it with anyone who would listen. Ashley's Bookshelf was actually the first YA book blog I stumbled upon. I couldn't believe you could have a blog where you reviewed books. The thought had never come to mind. I contemplating starting my own blog for a few weeks after that and then finally gave in. :D
I've seen a bunch of you post little getting to know me tidbits about yourselves and I always enjoy reading them. It's nice to know a little bit about the person behind the blog so I thought I'd do the same. Below you'll find a bunch of information you probably never wanted to know but now have had the pleasure of reading haha.

I hope this wasn't too boring. It felt very narcissistic to blab on and on about myself lol. I'm really not that interesting. :P One last thing, I know a lot of you have goodreads and I've tracked a bunch of you down, mostly by accident due to our common reading patterns. Feel free to add me if you want. You can find my profile here. :D

Thanks again for everything!
