Announcing… Shelly’s One Year Blogoversary Celebration!

one year blogoversary


I can’t believe I’m writing this post. When this goes live, I will be in NYC most likely at BookCon or at my hotel getting ready for the bookish awesomeness or maybe just taking a nap. If you told me two years ago that my life would become BOOKS,BOOKS,BOOKS, I’d probably think that you’re crazy but here we are!

(Anyone else feel like this is supposed to be like an Oscar speech or an acknowledgements page on a book?)

When I started blogging, I honestly didn’t imagine that I’d still be here a year later. I have so many other hobbies with on again/off again tendencies and I’m so glad that I stuck with book blogging. Talking to other bloggers and getting to share my passion with others, I finally feel like I belong. Sure, I still get people saying hurtful things to me about my book choices every now and then but, I found something that I can see myself doing for a while. And that means a lot to me. I usually make hasty decisions;starting my blog, buying every single book I want, writing random posts but I won’t ever regret my hasty decision to make a blog in the first place.

I want to thank Octavia for letting me join her lovely blog and for letting me make it my home! I also want to thank all my friends for letting me ramble incoherently and for letting me fangirl at everything and anything. I’m appreciative of all the readers, bloggers and personal friends who continue to support the blog through commenting or silently reading (as I often do myself). I love you all!

Yes, I would totally be crying when hugging you all because HAPPY CRYING IS THE BEST!

I’m just so thankful that I get to be part of such an awesome thing and that I can continue to share the booklove with everyone!

I’m also happy to announce that I have a couple of guest posts lined up for the next couple of days from some awesome bloggers and (probably) some giveaways! Thanks for making this year a great one and I hope to write another post similar to this one in another year 😉

You’re such a fab person and I know I don’t nearly comment/talk to you enough but I am always silently reading!! So hurrah for one year, and hope I’ll be able to see you around for many more!!!
