250+ Followers + 6 Months Blogging Giveaway

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed! Winners announced here. :) 
 
Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I have done a giveaway. And I figured since today it's been 6 months since I started this blog it would be an awesome time for a giveaway :) Plus I have over 250 followers; which is just too amazing. I wanted to thank you all for following me and for reading my posts. It means so much to me.

These past 6 months have been really amazing for me. I do love blogging. I love doing the WoW posts and the IMM posts, and I love writing and sharing reviews of books that I read :) Since I started blogging on October 11th 2011 I have gotten 259 followers and more than 17,000 page views. I have posted over 200 blog posts. And I have received over 1300 comments :) Thank you all so much.

To celebrate I have decided to have a new giveaway :) It will be open to everyone who can get books via The Book Depository. The rules is that you have to follow me via GFC. This giveaway will be via Rafflecopter; so there will also be a few extra entries possible :)

The prize? You get to choose one of the YA paperback books I have picked out for you below :) They are all awesome, just so you know. Don't have goodreads links for any of them, but I do think it is very easy to see what books they are :) I have also reviewed them all here on my blog. If you win; I will be contacting you via your email to get your book choice and your address.



a Rafflecopter giveaway


4/13 Update: I just wanted to thank you all for entering! You guys are beyond amazing and I adore you all :) <3 Also wanted to say that if I end up getting 359 followers before this giveaway ends there will be two winners :) (359 because that is 100 more than when this giveaway started.)
