Happy 1st Blogiversary!

Wow, I can't believe it has been a whole year since I started this blog. It has definitely been a learning experience :) Meeting so many wonderful people in the blogging and publishing communities has been awesome and of course all the talented authors out there!

So a blogiversary works a little bit different than a regular guys get the presents instead of me! This is a big thank you to everyone who has joined and followed my blog and especially to everyone who has signed up on Feedburner to receive regular blog updates!

I have a whole bunch of books to give away plus a bunch of other fun stuff like bookmarks, stickers and a giftcard! There will be two winners....okay here are the books (which are all ARCs unless otherwise mentioned):

Love and Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson (Hardcover)
Little Black Lies by Tish Cohen
A Whole Nother Story by Cuthbert Soup
Almost Perfect by Brian Catcher
Rage: A Love Story by Julie Anne Peters
Beautiful by Amy Reed
Wicked: Resurrection by Nancy Holder
Another Faust by Daniel Nayeri, Dina Nayeri
Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials by Rosalind Wiseman
The Summer I got a Life by Mark Fink
Goth Girl Rising by Barry Lyga
Num8ers by Rachel Ward
Riding the Universe by Gaby Triana (Hardcover)
In a Heartbeat by Loretta Ellsworth
How to Ruin Your Boyfriends Reputation by Simone Elkeles (paperback)
My Invented Life by Lauren Bjorkman
Duplikate by Cherry Cheva
Espressologist by Kristina Springer (Hardcover)
Evil? by Timothy Carter (paperback)
Darklight by Lesley Livingston
The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne Prinz
