Yeah. I know. 5 YEARS YOU GUYS. It is crazybeans. And also true.
Granted I haven't always been as dedicated to the blog as I am now and I haven't always been as into the YA Blogging community as I have in the past couple years, but the truth is my very first post was September 8, 2007. It was a review of The Golden Compass for my YA Lit course.
So since this is my blog we're going to celebrate how I WANT - with good friends and good books.
Each day this week - DAILY I SAY - you'll have an opportunity to win a favorite book from one of my favorite bloggers. I've tasked them with picking one of their favorite reads of the past 5 years (no easy feat) and giving it away to one of YOU. EACH DAY. Monday - Friday. Seriously. This is happening.
Let's kick off this crazyawesomegiveawayadventure with my main squeeze, Ginger at GReads! She's one of my absolute favorite blogging pals and long distance friends and I just adore her to pieces. Watch for our band All Hands and Awkward Faces. Our album should be dropping next summer. The girl is creative, encouraging, and one of the best promoters out there! So what book does this incredible girl recommend to you?
Why Ginger picked this book: Wanderlove is a story about a girl who ventures out on a backpacking trip through Central America. She begins this journey wanting to shed her past and embark on something new. What she doesn't realize is that it's the self discovery she makes along the way which holds more meaning than any miles traveled. I chose this book to give away because I feel as though blogging has become my own personal self discovery. It's literally changed my career path in life (I was working a 7-4 desk job biding my time, only to discover I had a passion to want to teach children's literature). Blogging has exposed me to so many new friends that I would not have met otherwise. Through these friendships I've learned more about myself and the type of person I am still striving to be. Every day I am challenged by what book I read, and the discussions which usually follow suit. I adore the interactions that books have brought into my life. Blogging has definitely prompted many new discoveries for me.
