Today, I celebrate six wonderful, life-changing months since the birth of BlookGirl.com! I have grown so much in the past six months – as a reader, as a writer, and as a friend. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, from publicists to authors to other book lovers, and I’ve been to amazing events, from book signings to Teen Book Con to TXLA 2012. My life has been a whirlwind since I started blogging, and I would not have it any other way.

I have made it to where I am today not only because of my love of books, but also because of you, dear reader. You cheer me on and you keep me going, even when I wonder if I’m insane for spending so much time reading, writing reviews, Tweeting, and reading some more! This is especially true for my Best Blogger Friends, Jenni @ AlluringReads and Giselle @ XpressoReads. They make me “laugh out loud” every single day. Jenni and Giselle have been so amazing and are always willing to lend an ear or shoulder when needed. I simply love them!

In honor of this auspicious day, I thought I would say “thank you” to those of you who support BlookGirl by visiting and commenting (and thereby making me grin from ear-to-ear) by offering a simple giveaway.

Next week, the Fierce Reads Tour will be here in Houston at my favorite indie bookshop, Blue Willow, and I will finally meet Leigh Bardugo, author of Shadow and Bone. This book quickly rocketed to the top of my Book Wish List for 2012, and I have been anxiously awaiting it for what seems like eons. Leigh has no idea what awaits her in Houston…. Noooo idea 😉

So, dear reader, I will be offering a signed hardcover copy of Shadow and Bone -AND- a swag pack of assorted book swag from Born WickedReVampedIf I LieGrave Mercy and more! Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below, and the two winners will be chosen on June 30, 2012!
