My has two years flown by. I don’t know where the time has gone. I remember being a shy blogger writing my first post on my favorite author Sarah Dessen. I wasn’t sure how to write it or if anyone would read it. Now, fast forward two years later, I am still doing my little reviews. I am more sure of myself, but deep down that shy blogger remains.
I don’t know what I would do without you, my dear reader friends. You have been great. With two BEAs under my belt as a blogger, it’s been great meeting fellow bloggers and making new friends. I have a couple new surprises up my sleeve for indiereadergirl0329 that I am excited to launch in the near future. I always promise to be more active, but I’ll make the promise again for old times sake. And, try to mean it. I have a fancy new planner I’ll try to use better!
If you haven’t noticed already, indiewritergirl0329.wordpress.com is gone. I have decided to invest in my blog once and for all. It is official. One permanent name–indiereadergirl0329 for lyfe!!!
I hope you stick with me as indiereadergirl0329 grows and grows. And, as I grow. I feel I have grown a lot this year. More than I have shared. I had a tough last half of the year last year. Now, six months in the year, I am emotionally, mentally, and I would like to think physically, stronger than I have ever been. If you follow me on twitter you may have seen my tweet about forming a book club. I was tired of not having a YA book club close to me. So, I started one. On a complete whim. I got my first member yesterday. Six months ago, or a year ago even, I would have never done that. I am finally secure in my body. Secure enough to share my struggles with all of you, even.
When I disappear, it’s because I feel I can’t do it. I don’t have the capacity to do it. Or, strength. But, I am fighting that more every day. So, please stick with me with this journey as I get stronger and more involved. I love each and every one of you. I love blogging and sharing my bookish thoughts. Although I don’t read every day, my mind doesn’t allow me to, I think about books ALWAYS.
Thanks for a great two years! Here’s to another two!!

Hello everyone! I had a few posts I wanted to write this week to commemorate my two years of blogging. It’s a big achievement for me as I have trouble continuing things for a long period of time. But, alas I have been majorly sick all week. It’s awful.
I just wanted to pop in and say I haven’t disappeared on you completely. I haven’t forgotten about you all, I promise! I am hoping to get another post out today and/or tomorrow. I will beat this!
Now, for that giveaway I’m hosting. I forgot to mention it is open to US residents ONLY. Sorry international folks, shipping to you is expensive. But, if you have already entered, and do win, since I did not mention it earlier I will give you a book from book depository.
Giveaway teaser time: I haven’t had the energy to take any photos so I’ll just hint at some books in the packs.
One lucky winner will get a copy of Fairest by Marissa Meyers, and/ or a copy of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, and/or a copy of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. Plus, there will be a tote bag (hopefully) in each box with a goodie from my etsy business as well. There will be signed copies in all three boxes.
So, what are you waiting for? Enter my giveaway for some awesome prizes? There will be 5-6 books in total.

It’s that great time of year for me. BEA is over; and another exciting event takes its place–my bloggiversary. It’s been two great years since I started my journey blogging about books. My have I had fun talking to all of you about books! This has been a great experience for me. I can’t thank you all enough for sticking with me for two years. I’ve had a blast reviewing books, recommending books, and bonding with all of you. Time has just flown.
During this week, I will be posting about my two years blogging. Interspersed between those posts will be sneak peeks of prize packs that you can win. That’s right. Prizes!! What’s a celebration without a giveaway? Like last year there will be three prize packs. Unlike last year, there will actually be a grand prize winner. Oh my.
All the books, or most of the books, will be books from this year’s BEA. Since I just got back from Texas, literally four hours ago, I haven’t had time to make designated prize packs like I did last year. So, it will all be a surprise. I will post a picture and post every two days, so stay tuned!
I hope you can join me this week as I celebrate. Below you can find the link to the giveaway. I hope you enter!
Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!
