Happy 1-Year Blogversary & Giveaway!!!


I have been part of the bookish community for over 6 years, mainly as a reader and Goodreads reviewer. But after much debate, I decided to enter the bookish world as a book blogger. So on January 12, 2016, I revamped my old blog that I created in 2011 (I only had one post, hahaha), and started sharing my own rants and raves on books and anything book-related. I have loved every step, and I continue to learn things about myself, the community, and the publishing world. Thank you to everyone who has supported my blog, and more importantly, thank you for making me feel so welcome in the book blogging world.

  1. Thank you for this opportunity and congratulations on your blogaversary! My favourite book I read last year is probably Winter from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer!

  2. thanks for the awesome giveaway. my fav reads of 2016 is A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and Art & Soul by Brittainy C. Cherry

  3. Congratulations!! Favorite book…oh gosh, such a hard question. Totally unfair. I’m going to have to say A Court of Mist and Fury though…if I had to pick one to reread right now, that would be it, so I guess that makes it my favorite!

  4. Its always so hard for me to narrow down my favorites – How To Hang A Witch and My Lady Jane are the first two that pop in my head!

  5. Happy blogiversary! So great you decided to join the blogger community to share your thoughts on books! Wish you many more years, full of amazing reads and amazing experiences!

  6. Congratulations, Cassie! ♥ It’s so nice to read you’re having a great time blogging and getting to know new bookish friends. Here’s to many more blogiversaries!!
    Therapy, by Sebastian Fitzek, was my favorite read of 2016. Not only the story was mind-blowing and absolutely gripping, but also, it took me out of a slump – seriously, I couldn’t put it down until I finished it! It’s a psychological thriller, and I really enjoyed it!
