Blogoversary Day 11: Today's the Day!

Today's the day everyone! Today is Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews second blogoversary! We still have a few more events coming up, but I would like to thank all the authors and bloggers that helped to make this event possible! This time last year, the blog was fairly tiny. Heck, I posted the blogoversary post a day late!

So grab your party hats, here's some cake, dance like crazy, and let's get this party started!

I have made so many friends in this community, and I would like to take a second to thank Sara V. Zook, Nova @ Out of Time, Wendy Higgins, Alison Kemper, Chloe Jacobs, Jessica @ Fly to Fiction, Nikki @ Fiction Freak, and SO SO SO many more! I couldn't have done it without you!

I the next year, I hope to get another blogger. She's very excited, and *might* start soon. We're not sure yet. The school year gets busy for both of us, but we hope that between the two of us, we might get more posts done.

This year has been a huge success. The blog has had:

Almost 60k page views

144 GFC followers

348 posts

943 Twitter followers

436 Facebook likes

48 Instagram followers

Received more ARCs than I can count (mostly thanks to The Regulator Bookshop)

Met tons of authors

Plus so much more!

This year has been loads of fun. There have been times when I've forgotten to post for a week. Others where I post every day. A few highlights of the year were meeting authors such as Kasie West, Kiera Cass, and Megan Miranda. I attending my first conference! LeakyCon was so much fun, and there are tons of pictures on the Facebook page!

This fall, only more fun things await. I'm going to get to meet Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Marie Lu, Robin LaFevers, and Lauren Kate, just to name a few!
