Celebrate Good Times…{Giveaway}

Holy crap! Today is my 6th blogiversary. 6 years of sharing my life and love of books with all of you. Seriously, where does the time go?!?!

Over my past blogiversary posts (minus my 4th year as I was lazy and didn’t do one) I have talked about highlights from the past year and shared some of my favorite reads. While I did have some great highlights, I am going to skip that this year. I am going to focus on my favorite reads and on some bookish things I have coming up/planned for 2019. And make sure you scroll to the end to enter my giveaway.

The Books:

I read 100 books last year. My goal was 125, but I reached 100 which was enough for me.

Out of those 100 books, one of them was 992 pages long so I basically think you can say I read 102 books. 😛

Of course Anna was read again as was A Court of Mist and Fury. Those are my yearly staples.

Some Favorites (click on the cover to purchase on Amazon):

These are just a sampling of my 2018 5 star reads that are already available for purchase.

These are a sample of 5 star reads that will be out in 2019.

Bookish Events Early 2019:

ALA Midwinter 2019

In 2 weeks time I am heading to Seattle for the first time and hitting up ALA for at least one of the days I am there. I’m really excited to see a new city and Seattle has always been on the list of US places to see.

I read all 5 books (three from the Grisha Verse and 2 from Six of Crows series) in the end of 2018 to get ready for this book release and signing. I can’t wait to meet Leigh again on 1/30, and this time I have read her books.

Just a couple of days later I will be moderating the A. C. Gaughen and Brigid Kemmerer signing in Cambridge, MA. I love these two ladies and these two books so I’m super excited about this. I got to blurb Brigid’s book for the ARCs wish was AMAZING! And I think this is like the 4th time I have moderating a signing for A. C. Gaughen so it is becoming our thing. 😛

And rounding out the beginning of the year I will be hitting up ApollyCon for the 2nd year in a row. I look forward to this event for months. I get to see some of my favorite people and I get to visit a city that is becoming one of my favorite places to see.

This giveaway is for an Amazon Fire 7, 7″ display Tablet with Alexa, a book of choice ($15 max) and a $10 Amazon gift card. The giveaway will run from 1/11/19 to 1/27/19 at 11:59PM EST. It is US ONLY. I love you my international readers but shipping is just too much. Giveaway accounts will be disqualified so please don’t enter if you are just a bot looking for free stuff.

  1. 6 years!!! It goes by so fast! I feel like I just met you in that line at my first BEA, while equally feeling like I’ve known you and been reading your blog forever. I hope you have an awesome time moderating that event!! That’s going to be so fun, and I can’t wait to see which books you read for the NEW TO ME feature– also, I am so happy to see JUST FOR CLICKS on your 5 star list. It looks adorable and I’m pretty pumped to read it!

  2. Happy blogiversary, Andi! What a great year you have planned. Can’t believe how long we’ve known each other and been mutual blog fans. Still following through email and will follow forever. =)

    (PS if I win, I’ll pay for shipping).

  3. Congratulations! I follow you on twitter, Goodreads, and more. And I’m so happy to have found you or maybe I never would have read Anna and the French Kiss.

  4. Congrats girl! I am so sad I can’t go to Seattle. But i hope you have the best time.

    (also, you know where I follow you)

  5. Happy 6 years! I feel like I follow you all the places- though I just found you on instagram now. Twitter, GR, here.

    Maybe we’ll run into each other again at ApollyCon next year!

  6. Congratulations on 6 great years! I follow you on Twitter, GR, Feedly, probably bloglovin too. Looks like you had a great reading year, and you may have convinced me to struggle through the PDF disguised as a mobi I got of Just For Clicks from NG. The print is really small and not resizable, so I set it aside, but now I am having FOMO.

  7. Yay! Congrats on 6yrs,that’s wonderful. I follow via twitter and instagram, and I’m happy to pay for shipping if I win 🙂
