A Bookish Blogoversary Bash!

The past year has FLOWN by. I can't believe it's already blogoversary time -- and at the same time, I feel like I've been doing this forever. I've met the most amazing people and have had SO much fun discussing my favorite thing -- books -- with people who love them just as much as I do! Who knew such a brave new world existed out there in the blogosphere? I didn't until this past year, but I'm so glad I found out!

To say THANKS to all you awesome readers for sticking with me so long, I thought I'd celebrate my first blogoversary with some giveaways and guest posts!

I've read sooo many great books since I started this blog last February, and I want you to have a chance to read them too! So, without further ado...

Giveaway #1

Below you'll find 20 of my favorite reads since I started blogging:

The Rules:
  • One winner will receive their choice of two books from this pile. If it's a book that hasn't been released yet, I will preorder it for you.
  • Open anywhere The Book Depository ships (please check the eligible countries HERE).
  • Because this is a "thank you" to my followers, you must be a follower (new or old) to enter.
  • Ends 3/8/11 at 12:00 pm EST

To Enter:
  • Comments on this post will not be counted as entries, but are greatly appreciated =)

Extra Entries:
  • +2 each for leaving a thoughtful comment on my review for any of the giveaway books pictured above (you can find them all on my list of reviews)
  • *please note that my Clarity and Bumped reviews haven't been posted yet, as I only read them last week
