Happy Blogversary to Me!! ~ Day 1: Looking Back {and giveaway}

Posted October 24, 2015 in Life, Reading / 2 Comments


It is so hard to believe that I have reached my one year Blogversary! That is so crazy for me to say. One year ago I was just going to blog for me. I never thought I would have any readers, yet alone all of you. It has been a crazy year and I can hardly believe it.

To celebrate this crazy, beautiful, amazing year, I have decided to host a series of giveaways. The giveaways will all be Kindle ebooks since those are cheaper and I can send them internationally much easier. 🙂 Today’s theme is Looking Back.

The Books that First Got Me Reading

Put Me in the ZooSandry's BookThe Storyteller's Daughter

I have always read a lot of books. One of the first books that I ever read by myself was probably Put Me in the Zoo. I loved that book when I was little and I think I had to have two copies because one fell apart. 🙂

When I got to grade school and had a whole library of books to pick from, Sandry’s Book, was my first fantasy novel and The Storyteller’s Daughter was my first fairy tale retelling.

These are just some of the books that helped shape the reader I am today.

Now for this giveaway which, I know, was probably the only reason you clicked onto this page. 🙂

Sandry's Book

I have decided to giveaway a Kindle copy of Sandry’s Book by Tamora Pierce. I picked this book because (1) I love it, (2) it was a book that lead me into reading fantasy, and (3) I don’t think enough people know about it.

I know it is a different cover image than my paperback copy (shown above) but this is what Amazon has for the Kindle book cover. Which do you like better and why?
