One Year Already!?!?! My FIRST Blogoversary!

Hi guys!

Guess what? It's my FIRST BLOGOVERSARY!!! YAY! That means that I've been blogging for ONE WHOLE YEAR now! WOW! When I was a newbie, I was a little unsure and didn't know a lot in the blogoverse, but I was welcomed into the community and I'm grateful for everybody for their support!

I'd also like to thank all of the publishers, publicists, and authors for being so kind and so very supportive of me! I had a blast collaborating and working together with these people!!! A very special thanks to these people: Stacey @ Penguin, Kimberly Derting, Jennifer, Jami, Eleni, Stephanie, Katie, Emma, Katie, Kelsey, and especially my little sister The Bookologist! You guys have made this year even better for me and I'm extremely thankful for all of your help, random chats, amazing comments, and awesome friendship! I'd also like to thank Alice as well as Precious, whom I consider to be two of my blogger BFFs with our back-and-forth emails! Also, thank you to Mary, Raila, and Maria, only three of many people who take time to comment on my blog! Thank you so SO much to everybody who comments!

Ohh! And don't worry! Since this is a BIG celebration for me! I'll be hosting a few contests this week! Just for you guys!

Happy Blogoversary, Reggie! :)

Congratulations! You were one of my first blogs that I started following. One question, after blogging for a year, what book stands out more than any other that you read during this time and why?
