It's My 1st Blogoversary!

Guess what day it is today? It's Book's Are A Girl's Best Friend's first blogoversary and I truly can't believe I've been blogging for a whole year! The phrase time flies when you're having a good time comes to mind....

It's been exactly a year since I wrote my first proper blog post (although I didn't start blogging properly until about 2 months after) on the 29th May 2010 after discovering a few book blogs but unaware of the community out there. I started blogging because I wanted to have an outlet to share my love of books as I didn't have any reader friends and I'm so glad that I did.

I never expected my blog to develop the way it has or even thought that anyone would actually read my ramblings let alone 'follow' me. Despite times not always going smoothly, right from the start the book blogging community has been so helpful and supportive and I never stop being amazed at your kindness. I've had an incredible year chatting with other people who love reading just as much as me, growing my TBR list at an astounding speed, trying new genres, taking part in events/memes and most importantly having TONs of fun talking about books! You can here more about my favourite blogging experiences later in the week.

This blog wouldn't be what it is today without YOU so I just want to take this opportunity to say a massive

to everyone who has ever visited the blog, followed it, left a comment, entered a giveaway or helped and supported it in any way. You're amazing and I wish I could explain how much I appreciate everything- here's a virtual bunch of flowers! I won't name people but a particular thanks goes to my special blogging buddies :D

Here are some other posts I've got planned to celebrate my blogoversary
  • A giveaway (nothing awesomely big but a thank you for everyone)
  • Blogging Firsts and Facts
  • Why I Love Book Blogging- my favourite things
  • Books I might not have read without blogging

I would have liked to have done something extra special but school has been hectic recently. I hope you enjoy what I've got planned  :)

Here's to another brilliant year of book blogging!

P.S I'm still having a commenting problem so I won't be able to reply to anyone until it gets fixed- sorry.


  1. Happy Blogoversary! :)
