It's My First Blogoversary!!

HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY TO UNABRIDGED BOOKSHELF!

Can you guys believe it has been a year, since I started Unabridged Bookshelf!!
It has been a wonderful and crazy first year!
When I started my blog, I did not think it would gain any readers or followers what so ever. 
My first year goal was to have 250 followers, and well that has been majorly surpassed.
First, I want to say THANK YOU, yes you, the person who is taking time out of their busy lives to visit and read what I have to say. 
Thank you to every single one of you that has stopped by, read a review or post that I put up, followed this blog, said something nice, or just left a comment.
Every time someone takes time to check out Unabridged Bookshelf, my heart just swells.
YOU ALL ARE TRULY AMAZING!!


THINGS I HAVE LEARNED IN THE FIRST YEAR

  • Blogging is not easy, and it is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun!
  • Do NOT Procrastinate (still working on this one!)
  • There are more amazing books out there, then I will ever have time to read.
  • Life is too short to read a bad book
  • Every once and a while I need to read a book just for me
  • The biggest lesson: HAVE FUN!
FIRST YEAR STATS

  • Published 307 Posts
  • 79 Reviews Written
  • 1,701 Comments (SERIOUSLY!! AMAZING!)
  • 43,600 Pageviews
  • 869 GFC Followers
VERY FIRST REVIEW WRITTEN: Bite Me by Parker Blue
VERY FIRST REVIEW REQUEST: Bone Dressing by Michelle I. Brooks
MOST COMMENTED/POPULAR POST: Spring Flight Giveaway Hop
MOST POPULAR NON-GIVEAWAY POST: Book Review: The Hunger Games


SPECIAL THANKS
I really want to give special thanks to Andrea @ The Bookish Babe
She was one of the first book blogs I read, and she really inspired me to become a book blogger in the first place. Andrea is so super sweet, and if you have not check out her blog go do it now. NOW I TELL YOU :) 
Thank you Andrea for being supportive, and for stopping by my blog still to this day! 
YOU JUST ROCK!!

NOW TO CELEBRATE THIS AMAZING MILESTONE!!

My blogoversary would not be possible without the support of readers like you!
To celebrate, I have some awesome stuff to giveaway!

PRIZE PACK 1
That is right, you can win your very own box of MYSTERY!
What is in it? I do not even know...OK not true I just have not decided on all the goodies going it to the box.
PRIZE PACK 1 is US ONLY, because shipping would be way to expensive! 
Sorry International Followers, but I have other goodies for you!

PRIZE PACK 2:

A BOOK OF YOUR CHOICE
 from Book Depository or Barnes and Noble, depending on location!
This giveaway is OPEN TO EVERYONE, as long as Book Depository ships to you!

PRIZE PACK 3:

A MYSTERY EBOOK and SWAG PACK
This giveaway is for INTERNATIONAL ONLY Followers.
If you win, I will send you an envelope of swag, and ask you for your top 5 wishlist.
I will then pick on of the books off your wishlist and send it to you. 
Sort of small virtual mystery box.
