The Blushing Reader BIRTHDAY BASH GIVEAWAYS!!!






THE BLUSHING READER TURNED ONE!!


One year ago today I posted for the very first time on The Blushing Reader blog.  It wasn't a review, it was my rambling about how excited I was to start this blogging adventure.  And what an ADVENTURE it has been!

Last year at this time I would have never guessed how much a blog about what I like to read, what I want to read and what I have read would change my world as much as it has.  The Blushing Reader has been a roller coaster of a LOT of work for one person to the most fun I have had in a long time with my life-long hobby of reading.  I have met so many readers, authors and other bloggers in the last year I don't have enough room to name everyone awesome person.  

In one year LOTS has happened: I have posted over 440 times, reviewed over 275 books and read around 400 books.  I have done blog tours, review posts, spotlights.  I learned how to navigate Blogger and Rafflecopter while discovering that www.picmonkey.com can suck hours of my time in a snap.  I started a book club on Goodreads and have tons of fun completing the reading challenges with my friends over there.   I have taught myself HTML and redesigned a blog on my own.  But the most important thing I have done this year is read incredible books and share them with other book addicts. (sorry for all the enabling)

If you have been with me this whole year, THANK YOU for stopping by the blog and participating in the shenanigans.  If you are new to this blog I hope you come back again!

Now let's get to the good stuff!  Thanks to the  help of Authors, Bloggers and Friends I am able to give you 3 GIVEAWAYS chock-full of AWESOME prizes!!  (I've made their names and title of their books clickable so you can learn more about these amazing people and prizes)


All my love,
