Last year I did a really awesome one year blogoversary video (GO WATCH) and giveaways but this year I’m keeping it simple (also because I have a pretty stellar giveaway coming up next week!). It’s no secret that I’ve got a lot on my plate right now (wedding in August, job stress, moving into our apartment, etc.) but I just really wanted to take a quick second to say thank you! I’m not sure if you all understand how much you mean to me. I know that could sound silly to some but you guys GET me. You like (and sometimes dislike) the same books as me, you comment so thoughtfully and I love our conversations, you laugh lovingly at me when I accidentally eat moldy whipped cream, you don’t think I’m TOO strange.. you even support my weirdest ideas (book inspired dates? casting my fictional bridesmaids? The list could go on). And most importantly — you guys are always there. To talk. To suggest a book. To give me advice about non-bookish things. To laugh with me. To give me a little boost of confidence when I feel down. I have to say, the people who think this blogging thing is about the ARCS and the publishers..they’ve got it backwards in my very humble opinion. You could pile the ARCS on me and I’d never feel so satisfied as I do when I get to connect with you guys through comments, on Twitter and, for some of you, email/text/IN PERSON. And that’s the TRUF.
Seriously, without putting my overly sappy pants on, you guys rock. You keep me going even though sometimes I think I don’t want to. I adore you guys and I’m so happy I’ve gotten to share a part of myself with you for two AMAZING years. <333
