4 Year Blogoversary Celebration + $20 Amazon GC Giveaway!



I can't believe its been 4 years that I've been doing this blog! It really doesn't feel that long! I still learn stuff all the time, and am still improving (I hope!) as I go along!

When I started my blog, I really just wanted to talk about books. I was brimming with thoughts and ideas whenever I'd finish a book, and really had no one to talk with about it! I thought this would be a good outlet. 

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started. My first blog design was pretty Plain Jane, and my first book review was pretty rough! Over the years, I've improved both. I've also added so many things to the experience! I've learned about blog blasts and blog tours, learned how to do author interviews, learned a ton about social media, learned how to make and edit videos, attended a book convention and am now on 3 different author street teams! I've made some amazing friends, hosted a few readathons, and had margaritas with a famous author! If you would have told me 4 years ago that I'd be doing these things I wouldn't believe you!

To celebrate 4 fantastical years, I'm doing a week's worth of features and giveaways! Make sure you check back every day this week to be entered in them all!

To start with, I thought I'd give away something we all want--a gift card! I thought it would be fun to give you all the chance to get to know me better. So, to be entered in this giveaway you have to ask me a question below. Whatever you want (within reason!) At the end of the week, I'll answer all your questions! Or try to anyways! 

Have fun and good luck!

  7. Congrats on 4 years of blogging! I recently started blogging too and I hope still keep on blogging like you. I'm not going to lie but, I just stumbled upon your book haul on youtube and love your tastes in YA. Which then led me to your blog. I saw your favorite series and I absolutely love The Infernal Devices, The Lux Series, and The Selection Series! (But, shame me because I haven't finished the first two series because I don't want to end it!) A question to ask... If you were a book character, what world would you like to live in?

  9. Congrats on 4 years! :D I know we love YA, but was wondering what are your favorite Adult books? Favorite Children's or Middle Grade books? And then outside of age ranges, what's your favorite overall genre?

    I know that's three questions but I'm curious lol.

  10. Great questions guys! And that's okay Zi, you can ask me more than one question if you want :)

  11. Do you read leisurely or do you have a set time of day that you allow yourself to read? I have so much I want to do including reading that I'm about to put myself on a strict daily routine. But I'm afraid it will end up feeling more like a chore than a hobby.

  12. Happy blog birthday! 4 years seems like such a long time to me because I've only been blogging for a year and half. Congrats!

    My question for you: What was one of the hardest things you had to do as a book blogger? (Getting the guts to email an author for an interview? Trying to write 5 billion posts when life was really crazy? Writing that first review?)
