Happy 1st Blogoversary!

Hey! Hey everybody! Guess what? Today is my first blogoversary!
 
 
I KNOW! It's hard to believe that's it's already been a year. One year ago today I made the leap from lifestyle blogging to book/movie blogging. One year ago today, I decided to continue my passion of writing and blogging and published my first post as Foil the Plot.  Man, it's been quite a ride!

This has been a year full of ups, like the time I met my bookish idol, R.L. Stine and let you all convince me to join Twitter. But life is also full of difficulties, too. I've felt the blogging blues and had a hard time balancing my adultly responsibilities with my blogging life. To be honest, I kind of suck at it... BUT... it's a work in progress with room to grow. Afterall, nobody's perfect, right?


But what really keeps me blogging is the community. You guys are awesome! With you, I can totally kirk out over awesomely bad movies and gush over The Darkling and rant over unnecessary love triangles. With you, I don't have to be afraid to be myself 100% of the time. Nerd life foreva! You all have welcomed me into the bookish community with open arms and I can't imagine my life without you now. I've made some really awesome friends here and for that, I am forever grateful.


You guys keep me motivated and make me push myself to be better. I'd like to give a quick shout-out to some of the bloggers I've grown closest to in this last year: 

Belle (one of the first book bloggers I ever connected with), Kat (my bookish soulmate), Kay (one of my closest blogging friends), Naida (more than just a blogging friend), Tammy (the person who ALWAYS has something nice to say) and the ladies @ Young Adult Fiction & Whisky Sours (who always know how to make me laugh).

You guys rock my socks off and I a PROUD to call you my friends!

 
As a super huge thank you, I'm hosting an awesome giveaway. Author, Daria Snadowsky, has kindly allowed me to gift copies of both books in her Anatomy series, Anatomy Of A Boyfriend & Anatomy Of A Single Girl, (my reviews here and here) to all of you.
