Hey guys! It's been a year since we started the blog. We came up with the idea on Sept. 11, 2012, and formally launched our blog on Oct. 20, 2012. Since the blog started, we've experienced new things that couldn't have been possible if we didn't go beyond our comfort zones. So to say thank you to all our readers, followers, peers, we're having a giveaway.

We're giving away 5 books:
Insignia by S.J. Kincaid (Reviewed here here)
The Assassin's Curse + The Pirate's Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Review for The Assassin's Curse here, and The Pirate's Wish here)
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
 Enclave by Ann Aguirre
