GIVEAWAY! Four Year Blogoversary

June 4 marked my Four Year Blogging Anniversary!

It's hard to believe I've been blogging for such a long time. It feels like lots has changed in the blogging community since I began (and it really has), but the core has always stayed the same. A friendly, welcoming group of people who love books and love sharing that love.

I've been lucky over the past four years to make some wonderful friends who I've also met in real life:  especially Danny and Pushy of Bewitched Bookworms, Jenny of Supernatural Snark, Mary of Bookswarm, Melissa of I Swim For Oceans, Karen of For What It's Worth, Julie of My 5 Monkeys, Rachel of Parajunkee, and many more. I've gone to BEA three times! Met authors and publishers, gotten ARCs, had an excuse to tour New York... 

When I began blogging, I told myself that I would only continue doing it if I was having fun and I definitely wouldn't let it take over my life. I can say without hesitation, four years later, that it has totally taken over my life and I'm having a blast!

In celebration of four years, I'm offering an awesome giveaway. I'm giving away two sets of books to two readers!

Set 1: Pushing the Limits and Dare You To by Katie McGarry and Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles


Set 2: Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz, Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes, and This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

  10. Happy blogoversary, Alison! :D That's so exciting! I'm coming up on my 7th blogoversary.

    I mostly wanted to come congratulate you, but I'll enter your giveaway just for the heck of it too. :D I'd prefer set 1 and my favorite song right now is still the Glee version of "Someone that I used to Know." I <3 Matt Bomer's voice.

  11. Happy blogoversary, Alison. Well done. I would like set 2. My favorite song, as soon as I read that I thought of Cruise by Florida/Georgia State Line. I'm not crazy about country, but it is a fantastic summer song, get in the car and drive with your window down and the wind on your face.

  12. Happy blogoversary!! Such a great and fulfilling accomplishment.

    I would like set 2. My favorite song right now would be Luke Bryan's "Drink A Beer." When I first heard it, it made me think of my two recently deceased older male cousins and their relationship with one another. Since this past week was the birthday of one, it has been weighing heavily in my thoughts, and I can picture Ricky and Mikey living out the words of the song.

  27. Happy Bolgoversary!

    I'm really interested in set number 2 (keeping my fingers crossed!).

    I don't have a favorite song currently. I have been listening to the album Rave Tapes by Mogwai before bed every night. It's pretty fantastic.
