Happy New Year!
Well it's time to say goodbye to 2010 and I have to say I'm not exactly sad to see the back of it, in a lot of ways it was a tough year but I guess it wasn't all bad. One of the best things about last year was starting blogging, I'm so grateful for everyone I've met through my blog - other bloggers, authors and publishers alike. I started my blog on the 1st January (so today is actually my 1 year blogoversary) as a way of keeping track of the books I was reading. At the time I had no idea that the whole blogging community existed, had never heard of an ARC and had never even been to an author signing, I was just a long term book worm who has loved reading since I was a small child.
I feel so lucky to have met so many like minded people and I appreciate every single one of you. I've loved making new friends both online and the ones I've been lucky enough to meet face to face. I'd like to say a massive thank you to the publishers and authors who have sent me copies of their books for review and also to the publicists who have organised some fantastic blogger events that I have loved attending. It has been amazing to get to meet some of my favorite authors and I've discovered so many books that I probably wouldn't have tried if I hadn't been reading other blogger reviews. I'm still trying to narrow down my list of favorites books for 2010 but I'll be posting my list in the next couple of days.
I'm hoping 2011 is going to be a brilliant year for all of us, I know there are a lot of fab books that I can't wait to get my hands on! I want to do something special to celebrate a year of blogging but haven't got all of the details sorted out yet, rest assured there will be a fab giveaway coming soon though. For now I'll just sign off by saying I hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year celebration and that 2011 brings everything you could wish for!
