New Year, New Leaf

I want to start off by saying I'm sorry. I feel like I had more posts last year about my absence than I did have actual posts about books. It was a big year for me last year, starting with getting my first big kid job that involved a commute, a salary, outings and so many other things that are involved in a non-retail job. And then my uncle passed away while I was at BEA, and we road-tripped down to North Carolina and then up to New Hampshire for my boyfriends graduation. And then I moved! I went out and got my own place with my boyfriend and another couple. I think my biggest accomplishment of the year was when I won NaNoWriMo and got started on my novel. In December, I let my two year blogoversary pass by.

And now here I am, back at the start of the year with 40 reviews that I need to write because I read faster than I write and after having spent all day at working picking words to use, the last thing that I wanted to do was come home and pick more words to use.

This year promises to be just as exciting. In a few weeks, I'm heading to Philadelphia with my sister, Amy, Lexie and Tegan and Hannah to do ALAMW. February Hannah is going to visit again and we're going to do things in the city. In March I have tickets to a Jennifer Lynn Armentrout signing for White Hot Kiss. April is quiet for now but I'm sure it won't stay that way. May I have a signing for Samantha Shannon and BEA. Then I'm going to Vegas for ALA in June and I'm praying that the summer will be slow.

There are so many things that are happening that I am so excited about this year. In that excitement, I'm getting a new blog design and I can't wait to get it. Once I get it, I'm hoping that this will re-invigorate the blog and things will get back on track. My life will stop being an adjustment and it will start just being my life.

As a thank you, my loyal followers or even new followers. I have a giveaway that I have been dying to do for some time. I'm going to give away a signed ARC of Cress by Marissa Meyer. There are a few ways to enter and I hope you will enter and spread the love! We've had a big year and next year is going to be even bigger!
