One Year Blogiversary

It is hard to believe that one year ago today, I posted my first entry for this blog. I have made some great book and blogger friends, posted some reviews, and given away tons of books. I want to thank all of my readers and followers that you continue to read what I post here and make comments and participate in giveaways. I want to give a HUGE thank you to the contacts at the different publishing companies that generously provide so many great titles each month and allow me to receive free review copies and to share in giveaways with my blog readers and followers. It is my dream to work in publishing and until that happens, this blog is my little piece of feeling like I am connected to the industry in some way. I love books and I have since I first learned to read and I can't ever seem to get enough of them. And on that note, I would like to share my love with all of you. I could not make up my mind on what books to give away or what the criteria would be to win some books. So, I think I will just make it simple. Here are the rules: You must be a follower of my blog to be eligible to win. Leave a comment below with your email address. The contest is international, if you are the winner, I will mail to you wherever you are in the world. One winner will be chosen on June 30. Now, for the really good stuff. Here is what you will win:

Kill For Me by Karen Rose
The Book of Lies by Brad Meltzer
Obama's Blackberry by Kasper Hauser
Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are by Alex and Brett Harris
Julie and Julia by Julie Powell
A Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand
When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris
Swimsuit by James Patterson
Any Minute by Joyce Meyer
The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith
