1 year BLOGVERSARY



Snowflakes & Spider Silk turns 1 year old today - hooray!

I can't believe I've already been blogging for a whole year. I feel like there's still a lot to learn and improve, but I think I'm finally getting the hang of it! When I first started blogging, I'd been writing reviews for books on goodreads for a couple of years, but I had no idea how blog tours worked or what blog memes were. Now that I've gotten a few of those things under my belt, I feel way more prepared to take on even more blogging adventures.

My goal for this year is to continue posting reviews, Top Ten Tuesday, and Fantasy Friday posts, but I'd like to do more blog tours and more random posts about books and blogging. I finally got on the twitter bandwagon a couple of weeks ago, and I'm hoping to expand my network of fellow book bloggers and bookish people on that front too! Twitter is so much fun - I can't believe what I was missing out on :)

I have made a lot of blogger friends and gotten a lot of great recommendations from fellow bloggers over the past year - thank you all for making this so much fun. All of your comments brighten up my day, and it always cheers me up when I can chat about a great book or series with you all.

In honor of my blogversary, I'm hosting a giveaway of an excellent fantasy book - Mistborn: The Final Empire (paperback, US only) by Brandon Sanderson, and a $10 Amazon giftcard (US & international). The giveaway is open until the end of April, so enter away!

I absolutely love the Mistborn series - it's the series that got me back into reading fantasy after a couple of years of stepping away from it. It's brilliant and mind-bending, a lot of fun, has excellent characters, and is just generally awesome. The third book of this series BLEW MY MIND. I just cannot even begin to comprehend how much planning and thought goes into creating such epic and brilliant and intricate stories. If you haven't read it already, you're in for a real treat!

  4. I recently won Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson and is looking forward to reading that one. I'd recommend Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness, but I think you've already read that one. I also loved "All Our Yesterdays" and "Removed by SJ Pajonas" :)
