Wrap Up: Goodbye Mighty May!

A wrap up! This is the very first in my one year of blogging. Wait? One year means. . . I am in the blogging world for a year already! Look at how time flies so fast? It's just a year a go since I first posted my post. It's actually on Tumblr that I started book blogging but I disliked the format of my blog post there so I moved to Blogger!

I am very much grateful to those people who me on book blogging. The first blog I visited is Hazel's Staybookish. I love how she is flawless on her posts and her blog design is so gorgeous! I also participated on the third blog anniversary celebration of The Notebook Sisters! I had fun answering their crazy questions and what's more cool is they got an Alice In Wonderland theme party! Wooot, wooot!

And because I'm lazy to send sweet messages, here's a list of those lovelies I am so thankful for!:
To authors, Isobel Harrop for her inspiring book The Isobel Journal, Sherrie Wouters for trusting me her book Life Lived Twice and everything she have told me, Jen Sanya Williamson by her urging lovely to read music on her book Six Strings (your book gave me a heart to music on books), Jill Knapp who entrusted me her book to be reviewed Chase, Milda Harris for letting me review her book Doppelganger, J.A. Buckle I will never forget your enthusiasm on your book and your trust in me, Katie Coyle for reading my request on Goodreads and lovely response, Nikki Kelly and to her lovely Styclar Saga, Leah Thomas and to her Ollie and Moritz, may you continue to inspire every single reader, and to Marci Lyn Curtis who inspired with her awesomeness, you rock my lady! I would never forget my first blog event The 2015 Young Adult Debut Novels. It would have never been successful without: Anne Boles Levy and her Temple of Doubt, Moriah McStay and her Everything That Makes You, Kelly Loy Gilbert and her Conviction, Lee Kelly and her City of Savages, Maggie Hall and her Conspiracy Of Us, Stacey Lee and her Under a Painted Sky, and David Arnold and his Mosquitoland.
To publishers, AuthorBuzz, Gemelli Press LLC, Capstone, Barbour Publishing, Inc., Kensington Books, In This Together Media, Simon & Schuster, Simon Pulse, AuthorBuzz, Hachette Children's Books, Orchard Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers, Harper Teen, and to all publishers who approve my requests on Netgalley. AND, to Netgalley, without this team, I would never be reading great stories from great authors and never would know the person behind that great book.
To book blog tours, IFB, YA Book Bound, Xpresso Reads, Bookish Diaries Book Tours, Jen Halligan and Pinoy Book Tours. It's great to be one of your hosts, continue supporting great books!
And, to book blogger friends, there are lot of you that I want to mention but my time is ticking (for lunch and I'm hungry and note that I'm lazy, LOL, sorry) so. . . Hi! Stay Bookish, Paper Fury, Carmel & Kyla, Lily's Book Blog, Aimee at Deadly Darlings, Diva Booknerd, Her Book Thoughts!, Jules Bookshelf, Oops! I Read A Book Again, Sporadic Reads, These Paper Hearts and Writer For Misfits. You guys are awesome!

I know. There are tons of them and some I can't remember. But as much as possible (I am grateful for those people who usually visit my blog and leave some lovely comments), I thank them by putting their blog names on my blog roll. Also, they are the blogs I mostly visit.

Well, so much for this! Keep it up in mind that I am really thankful for you everyone! *Wink!


Last month went hella good but sort of sad because my internet have gone crazy. Here's what I have posted in the month of May.

Sup around the book blogging world:

Jess of My Reading Dress talked about Politically Prim and Proper: Have I Forgotten How To Free My Speech?. Her vocabulary nearly cracked my brain.
The Book Addicts Guide shared her Scarlet series review spoiler-free! She also recommended some books like the Scarlet Trilogy.
Lucia on Reading Is My Breathing gave out tips on How To Survive Vacation (For Book Junkies).

So how's your year of blogging, eh? Or whatever happened on your past month! Share some! I would love to read them.

P.S.: Sorry I don't have books to giveaway as a thank you. I'm saving things up for my birthday. I want my twenties to be fab! LOL.

Let's leave it up to this quote from Emily Brontë: "And from the midst of cheerless gloom I passed to bright unclouded day."

  1. Happy, happy blogoversary, Yani! Time flies extremely fast indeed. :) You've come a long way since you first started blogging and that's so awesome. I also love how you thanked your favorite authors for writing their books. They definitely deserve all the love. <3 Thank you for thinking of me also! <3 :)

  12. Congratulations on reaching your first milestone! I remember my first blogoversary like it was yesterday... I do remember feeling so proud for actually surviving 12 months, because I've started blogs before and they never, ever lasted... well, except my book blog now ;) Hope you continue to nurture your love for books and blogging, and help keep this community alive!

    1. Welcome to my blog, Kynndra! And, thank you. Unfortunately, I have no new posts since I posted this thank you post for my blog anniversary. Class started and I'm a junior studying Chemistry. I'm pretty loaded and all my free time are just for textbook reading and studying. I'm really sad I can't post regularly but will try. :)
