Happy Blogoversary and Giveaway #1!!

As I was preparing for this week, I just couldn't believe it has been a year already! The time has just flew by! I remember when I first started on this journey and how wide eyed I was at all the blogs out there. I couldn't believe that I would someday have nearly 300 followers myself. I am humbled and grateful to all of you and I also want to give a shout out Mitchell James Kaplan, author of By Fire, By Water. His book was my very first author review request! Also thanks to Shirin Dubbin for being such an awesome author. She has a lot going for her and I hope she continues down her path! Many of you have become friends that I hold dear to my heart and I converse with many of you thru our blogs, twitter, goodreads and other book sites. I have also learned SO much and I hope it reflects in my reviews. The most memorable learning experience was BBPCON and I will be doing it again next year if it is offered. It has been a great year and I hope this continues for many more...:)

So, to thank all of my followers/friends I have some great giveaways all week!! That means some awesome books could be coming your way! This is one of the biggest giveaways I have ever done so I hope you all like what I have...:D

GIVEAWAY #1-Urban Fantasy
Dayhunter (Dark Days, Bk 2) by Jocelynn Drake

Jennifer Estep has become a new favorite author of mine this year. I didn't read much urban fantasy before and now I am starting to enjoy it immensely. She will be guest blogging on my blog in September so stay tuned. She also gave me some bookmarks to giveaway...BONUS. Jocelynn Drake is another very talented urban fantasy writer that I enjoy!

Dark Days is a gently used book and Tangled Threads is a new book that I won (but I already had it on my Kindle) but it does of some mail bruising...:)
