Three Year Blogiversary & Giveaway!



Yesterday was my three year blogiversary and I completely forgot about it! 😳 Shame on me, lol. I’m so stoked that I’ve been able to blog for three years! I’ve made so many amazing friends through blogging and I’ve even met a few of you guys, which was exciting! I know over the last year and a half my blogging has been up and down (mostly down), but I still love it here. I still love blogging. I still love you guys! I even changed my blog around a bit, so I could try to update more and not only about books. Like include more posts about photography or just random things happening in my life. I mentioned all about this over here (in case you missed it).

I am super stoked for this new year of blogging ahead! Other pretty exciting news is I upgraded my blog to a personal account. I was actually at 98% of my photo usage, so I kind of HAD to upgrade (hahah) or no more pictures and that’s not cool with me. I love posting pictures! Also with my new personal upgrade, I can now be “” instead of “” and that is pretty freaking cool! New domain name change in a few days though. I want to give it time to work reliably. It does work, but WordPress says it might be “unreliable” the first 72 hours, so just to be safe I’ll keep it the old way for now. With the new upgraded personal blog change, you’re all stuck with me for at least another year now! 😜

Now onto the giveaway! It’s been three years, it’s time I did a giveaway! If it goes well, then there will be more in the future! It’ll be international as long as Book Depository ships to you. If you’re in the US, I’ll do a book from Amazon if you prefer that way.

You will win:
+ A book of your choice up to $25, so basically any book as long as it’s $25 or less.

How to enter:
+ Follow my blog (if you’re not already).
+ Comment down below what your favorite book of 2017 was!

SUPER EASY! It will run from now until January 31st. I will randomly pick and announce a winner on February 1st. 📖

GOOD LUCK!! & thanks for reading my blog over the last three years! I am super excited to continue blogging about books (and other things)!

In case you missed it;
Thoughts|| A Taxonomy of Love.
Photo A Day|| January 9-12.
Thoughts|| The Cruel Prince.

I hope you have a great day!

      • I like the format Illuminae was written in, I just felt like it was so boring at the beginning. I didn’t start to actually like it until the last 100 or so pages. Which is why I’ve been on the fence about Gemina. I liked the ending enough to see what happens next, but scared to actually pick it up because I felt so bored with Illuminae.

  1. Happy blogoversary, Ashley!! ❤ I am thrilled that you are still blogging after so long, you were one of the first bloggers I met and chatted with and we started around the same time. I love that 🙂 Here's to many more years of blogging and I am SO excited to see your new domain name, it will look so cool 😀
    Thank you for hosting such a lovely giveaway ❤ I think my favorite read of the year was… hm, maybe this is how it happened, by Paula Stokes? That's the one coming to mind right now, haha, there are so many books 🙂

    • Thank you, Marie! 🙂 Yes, you were one of the first bloggers I met and chatted with too. Pretty awesome that we’ve remain such good friends over the years! I can’t wait to officially switch over my domain name change. I tried it out for a little while and it was neat seeing it as just “.com” haha. 😀 I’ve never heard of the Paula Stokes book, but you and I usually like the same books so I definitely want to go check that one out. ❤

      • It is incredible and I am glad we are both still blogging and able to chat together on a regular basis, that’s the best ❤
        I hope you will read and love it, at some point we all know how massive our TBRs are haha 🙂

    • Thank you! 😀 I’m excited to start using my new domain name soon! I’ve never heard The Bear and the Nightingale, but I’ve been eyeing it a lot. I think I should finally pick it up.

    • Thank you! I think as long as you’re consistent with posting and also with connecting with other bloggers (comments, likes, etc.) then you’ll be pretty successful and gain more followers as well.

  2. Congratulations on three years! I love your blog, and here’s to many more years of blogging!🎉🎉
    My favourite reads this year were probably How to Disappear by Sharon Huss Roat and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon💕

    • Thank you, Kelly! I loved Alex, Approximately too. It was definitely one of my favorites from 2017. I really enjoyed The Wrath and the Dawn as well. When I first read it I didn’t like it that much, but then I reread it with the audiobook and loved it so much more! ❤

  4. Happy third blogiversary!! What a milestone, woohoo!! It’s HARD to just pick one favorite, but I can’t not mention my favorite author, so I’ll go for A Conjuring Of Light by Victoria Schwab. ❤

    Honorable mentions for Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner, Castle Of Water by Dane Huckelbridge, Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine and A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. (Ok, and THUG. And a couple of others, but I'm already cheating way too much here haha)

    • Thank you! 😀
      I need to read Schwab’s books ASAP! I own quite a few of them and have yet to pick them up. Hopefully to finally read A Darker Shade of Magic this year. It’s hard for me to pick favorites too, haha. I read a lot of great books this year. A Monster Calls, YESSS! Loved that one so much. ❤

      • Oh you should try Schwab’s books! They can go either way, but once you love her writing style you’ll never go back. 😉 A Monster Calls was so beautiful and I loved the movie as well. ❤
