It was the best decision ever.
Today I'm the happiest reader & blogger in the world. My blog has been my safe place for two years now and I can't thank it enough for the many doors it has opened for me. For how much it has allowed me to grow along with it.
Book blogging has made me a better writer.
Book blogging has made me a better reader.
Book blogging has made me feel more comfortable at expressing myself.
Book blogging has introduced me to wonderful people.
Book blogging has pushed me to make my dreams come true.
And Book blogging has made me HAPPY. I am happy.
And I can't thank YOU all enough, for all of your support and cheers and bookish talk.
I love my blog so much. I love my readers so much. I love my friends so much. I love my authors so much. And I love everyone and everything that's helped build my site into one of my favorite places to be.
It's been such an amazing ride.
A few special thank you's:
Flor, my sister, the Chef. Thank you so much for being the best friend in the world. I know I nag you a lot every time I want you to post something even when you don't have time anymore, but I love how you always make something special for the blog like the cookies on the banner. We are still a duo, always will be. ♥
To Kate Tilton, thank you thank you thank you for being such an amazing friend. For letting me review on your site, for letting me help on #k8chat and for always being awesome. You seriously rock! ♥
To Danielle L. Jensen, the author of my favorite YA fantasy series. I can't even begin to express how incredible you are.

Thank you!! ♥
To Jessica L. Brooks, for also being one fantastic friend, reading buddy and author. Whenever I see or hear anything about a hamburger I always laugh and think of you. We almost met once, so nothing will stop me for meeting you next time! And we'll eat BURGERS. ♥
