HELLLOOOOO everyone! This day marks two years from the time I started blogging. I am so fortunate and lucky to have an awesome blogging and reading community that supports me and talks to me all the time. I love having this blog and I am always looking for ways to improve it. I am writing new posts, filming new videos, and creating fun things that you will see very soon. They are TOP SEKRIT right now ;-D
Today I wanted to share some stats and fun things from the past year with you!
Big events through the two years:
- ATBF 2013! Austin Teen Book Festival; my first book fest ever!
- Numerous author interviews that will be posted soon 😀 (over 25!!!)
- BEA 14! BookExpo America a.k.a. the coolest book event/conference EVER.
- Hanging out with Rick Riordan and John Rocco in the green room
- BookCon a.k.a. CRAZINESS
- TTBF 14 (formerly ATBF); a.k.a. Teen Press Corps crazy coverage, spending lunch with Gayle Forman
- Texas Book Festival-introduced Jon Scieszka and attended the author breakfast and cocktail party!
- Book Shimmy Awards (lol)
- ALL THE PAGE TO SCREEN ADAPTATIONS
- Joined Page to Premiere as a reporter/writer!!! YES THIS IS REAL
- North Texas Teen Book Festival (NTTBF)! 4 interviews, much book signing and 52 authors. YES PLZ.

So as you can see, the past two years have been jam-packed full of bookishness and fun and I couldn’t be happier! Also, I jsut want to thank EVERYONE on Twitter who talks to me and fanboys/girls over the same things that I do. Keep it up, I love you guys. Thank you! Also to all the authors who have talked to me and graciously let me interview them even with my temperamental camera *cue David Levithan nodding*
So, once again,
SO, celebrating this awesome day, I have a GIVEAWAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
