Today Living for the Books turns one! It doesn't seem like a whole year has gone by since I started this blog and I never thought that I would enjoy blogging this much. Thanks so much everyone for supporting my blog! A special thank you to Lottie @ Book Adoration, Annabel @ Fallen for Fiction, and Delaney @ The Awkward-ness you guys are awesome! My blog would be nothing without my readers. Every single time I get an email about someone commenting on my blog I get really excited. So I've decided to celebrate by hosting a giveaway for you guys! But first some blog stats. I saw another blogger doing this for her blogoversary and I really liked the idea so I decided to do it too.

  6. Congrats Erika! Your blog is freaking awesome. :)

  7. Congrats on your blogoversary! I'm interested in Dualed. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

    You've read some good books this past year. I enjoyed The Fifth Wave too. Talk about a surprising twist in a story!

  8. Congrats! That's awesome! Anyone in the US good luck ;) I'll just keep staring at the pretty cover of Unspoken and get a copy myself soon :P

  9. Congrats Erika! This is such a huge accomplishment! I would probably want to win Mystic City since I have friends who have read and liked it.

  10. Congratulations on your 1 year blogoversary! I would love to win Dualed because it has all the genres I love, dystopian, sci-fi, romance, apocalyptic, and fantasy! This book is definitely going on my TBR list. I have already read The Eternity (which is one of my favorites books, but that end cliffhanger! I need the third one ASAP!), Mystic City and Unspoken which are both really good as well. Thank you for the giveaway! We have common favorite books! LOL
