1st Blogoversary Giveaway (INTL)

Always Lost in Stories is one year old today!

I know! I can't believe it either! It has been an incredible year though and I have met so many fabulous people online to gush over books with. It's because of so many fantastic fellow bloggers that my TBR list is out of control, but I have so much fun talking about new books, and finding new bloggy friends and new books to pine after.

My highlights of the year have been-
  • Being approached by authors to review their book (what a compliment!)
  • Having a review quoted on a book
  • Making so many fantastic new blogger friends to squee over new releases with online.
  • Reading other bloggers book reviews and finding fantastic books that I would never have found on my own.
My goals for the year ahead include-
  • A complete re-design of the blog. I've been meaning to do this for MONTHS but never find the time, and not being very computer technical have no idea how to go about it.
  • Creating a blog button! I know, I know, it's shocking that I don't have one yet- but I figure there's no point having a blog button until I'm happy with the design of my blog and can create a button to match it.
  • Keep on posting honest book reviews of the books that I've read.
  • To host more blog tours.


Anyway, because I love blogging so much I am going to celebrate my one year blogoversary with a giveaway!
