35 Years Young Giveaway!

It’s hard to believe I started this blog days after turning 30 years old and now here I am, five years later. Not only have I changed as a person, but my reading tastes have also changed in those five years.

I feel like I’m more myself now, and definitely less apologetic for it. I’ve found my voice in these last five years and because of that my friendships have also shifted and/or changed. I have the right people in my life, surrounding me with positivity and love and encouragement, and I really have to credit books, blogging, and the book blogging community. I don’t know that I’d be the person I am today if it weren’t for those things.

In January we will be having another post to celebrate the blog’s 5th anniversary and there I’ll talk more about how my reading has changed. So for now, let me celebrate ME by giving YOU some books!

Here are some of my favorite books from 2015:

    Happy Birthday! I feel like my reading has changed too since I started blogging, and definitely for the better. In fact, I would say blogging has made my life better in so many ways, it’s hard to really explain.

    I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

    I already told you happy birthday but HERE IT IS AGAIN! HAPPY BIRTHDAY and thanks for such a rad contest! Also, can I tell you that I audibly said “YAS” and nodded emphatically when I read this “I feel like I’m more myself now, and definitely less apologetic for it. ” because that’s true for me in life and the blog and just ugh yes you nailed it.
