9th Blogoversary and Giveaway

9 years! I can't quite believe it, but here we are. I remember like it was yesterday when I first started this blog as a professional development opportunity.  I am so thankful I have stuck with it through the many changes in my life as well as the many changes in the book blogging world.

I'm also so thankful for this community of book lovers and the many publishers, PR firms, and other bookish professionals that I have had the opportunity to work with through the years.  I am most appreciate of you guys though!  I appreciate every email, note, recommendation, and comment. Truly I do! Thank you for sticking with me all these years.

To celebrate, I am giving away TWO books and there will be two winners. One giveaway will be for ARCs and the other for a book of the winner's choice.  (The lists are below.) This giveaway is for US readers only due to shipping costs. Please remember to refer to my giveaway rules before entering.  Thank you again for the BEST nine years. I love talking books with you guys and I hope that never changes.
