The Readers Den Three Year Blogoversary!

 



Hi all, I can't believe that today Rachel and I are celebrating the third year blogoversary at The Readers Den, I honestly didn't think we would have made it this far, although at times things have been a struggle with managing everything, I'm grateful to have had so many of you by our side from the beginning and to some great friendships that I've been able to make along the way. So here's a couple of thank you's.

A big thank you to my co-blogger Rachel, she has been the most understanding person ever, when I've made last minute post changes or not been around as much to comment, she's been there to pick everything up for me. I don't think I would have been able to manage the blog without you *hugs*.

Thank you to my girls Rashika and Siiri, I love how multi-platform we've become from blog commenting, what's app and now even Skype! Do you remember how nervous we were on our first chat? And now we just can't shut up! I'm glad to have met you both over the last year or so, you both definitely make my days with you constant book pushing and Scandal chats. Here's hoping that we'll finally be able to meet each other one day. 

Thank you to Nick, who has been there from the very beginning, for leaving lovely comments almost everyday and buddy reading with me so many wonderful book, (I swear one day I will be able to catch up with you ninja pace reading). Thank you to Danielle, Lauren, Joy and Jenny, I love reading your enthusiastic and honest reviews, you ladies could never lead me wrong with your book recommendations! Thank you to Donna and Jess, I'm thrilled that I've had the chance to meet you both in real life, you ladies are great in keeping me on top of all the bookish events near us, here's hoping we have many more wonderful events to attend together (we shall have to visit Foyles when it opens together in Birmingham).

Allie, who I will meet one day, remember you still need to come down so that we can experience AmeriCandy in all it's goodness! And all the other amazing bloggers who take the time out of their busy schedules to leave lovely comments on our blog: Melanie, Wendy, Faye, Aimee, Emma, Mel, Heidi, Keetana, Maja, Mary, Carina, Giselle, Nomes, Tanja, Glass, Summer, Christina, Leanna, Juhina and Ari we really do appreciate it! (Sorry if I've forgotten anyone, we love you all!)

Can I (Rachel) just say ditto to everything Jasprit said above? I would never be able to blog on my own and I couldn't ask for a nicer, smarter (Jasprit is truly the brains behind this blog) more accommodating blogmate! She picks up the slack with commenting if I'm not around or work is slowly sucking the life out of me.  

I have to shout out to all the bloggers Jasprit has mentioned above, as well. And a special thanks to Joy, Keetana, Nick, Heidi, Jenny, Danielle, and Lauren: you ladies always leave such meaningful comments, and have posts that add to and make my TBR insane,  I also want to thank the Arlene and Crystal at Winterhavenbooks.  They are my real life bookfriends in crime, meeting me at one event or another, dishing on our favorite reads, and indulging in our latest book gossip!  I thank all of you for sharing our passion for reading and stories that make an emotional dent. 


So to celebrate our three year blogoversary, we are giving two lucky readers the chance to win one of the 2015 pre-orders below. The Giveaway is open internationally, as long as The Book Depository ships to you, (a list of countries can be found here). Good luck everyone!

  69. A Court of Thornes and Roses for sure. The why... Well honestly I can't say it's because I loved her previous series because I have yet to read it. However, when I read that it was a blend of Beauty and the Beast with the Fae... Well I was intrigued to say the least.
    Happy Blogoversary <3 Three years that is just wonderful and hopefully there will be many more to come :)
