The Readers Den Four Year Blogoversary.

 


Hi everyone, if someone had asked me whether four years later that Rachel and I would be celebrating our Four Year Blogoversary, I would have probably laughed. I know Rachel and I haven't been blogging and commenting as much as we used to, but we appreciate all of you who take the time out and leave comments here. We definitely wouldn't have made it this far without your love and support.

Thank you to my co-blogger Rachel, I can't believe how far this blog has come, I really couldn't ask for a better co-blogger, I'm hugely grateful that the read-along's and book pushing on Goodreads all those years ago led to such a wonderful friendship!

A big thank you to Allie, Rashika and Siiri, I love how we've become the best of friends, honestly I feel like we've been friends for years, I love our daily chats, and regular skype sessions, I can't wait to see all your faces one day. Allie we've had so much fun all the times that we've met up, I appreciate how we can just goof off together and end up in food coma's, I'm glad our mission of Hot dudes reading was pretty successful the last time we got together, here's to many more eventful and wonderful meet ups to come! Rashika you're always great at bringing a smile to my face and making things look better when I've had a crappy day, I can't wait for when we have our plans for this Summer sorted. Love you Alaska ladies <3 

Thank you to Nick, Keertana and Joy who've supported this blog since day one, we appreciate the time you take out of your busy schedules to leave lovely comments and of course contributing brilliant recommendations to our tbr piles. Thank you to Lauren, Danielle, Jenny, Heidi, Donna, Jess, Wendy and Emma for all of your support too! Sorry if I've forgotten to mention anyone!

Rachel:
It's been a lovely four years blogging and there's no way I would've been able to run a blog without having Jasprit! I think our different tastes in books makes for a varying and interesting selection covered here on the blog.  We get along behind the scenes as well, sharing the same opinions and both of us have changed our blogging to a more relaxed approach making it a fun hobby instead of another job. 

I've "met" a lot of wonderful people in the blogosphere that have contributed to my out of control TBR and have been a listening ear when I want to rant or rave about a story that's brought out strong emotions.  Arlene and Crystal are women I became acquainted with right after joining Goodreads and we've even met up on book conventions and signings and where I've had a blast sharing our love of books.  Keertana, Joy, Jenny, Heidi, Brandie, and a new friend, Eva, are my go-to girls for books!  Thank you for all the recommends, brilliant posts, and comments! I'm sorry if I've left anyone out!


So to celebrate our four year blogoversary, we are giving two lucky readers the chance to win one of the 2016 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!

  5. Woah, four years girl? You should be so proud. We hope to see you here for plenty more years to come.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the new HP book being just the script of a play so I'd definitely order The Darkest Corner. Not only does it sound amazing (I cannot resist a good thriller/mystery) but it's been getting some fantastic early praise so I'm excited.
