Sassy's Blogiversary Bash Wrap Up + MEGA INT GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday!

Wow! That was one epic way to celebrate Sassy & Dangerous turning one! I still can't believe I've been blogging for a year now. It's been such an amazing experience, getting to meet new bloggers, have the opportunity to connect with authors and publishers, and just have fun in this book loving community! 

Back in July of last year, I had no idea my blog would amount to anything. All I wanted to do was talk about my love of reading and maybe even make a few friends who had the same interests as me. I thought I would get a few readers and that would basically be it for my blog, but boy was I surprised and EXCITED to see my audience grow week after week. I would always excitedly tell my parents that I gained a new follower or two, that I got accepted to read and review this book,  I basically talked about everything!

This year, I also got to meet two crazy ladies that I absolutely adore. Not only do they put a smile on my face when I need it, but they have had my back through everything and supported me and my blog and for that, I am super grateful for them! Tika, Blessie, you crazy butt weirdos, I love ya! <3 

I also got the chance to meet some authors and publishers this year! Never in my life did I think I would actually be able to say "Oh yeah, I'm friends with that author!" A quick shout-out to all the wonderful authors and publicists that I got to meet: 

| Lesa Howard | Iain Reading | Emily Wibberley | Erin Johnson | Elise Kova | Noelle August | Brianna R. Shrum | Courtney Cole | Karen Ann Hopkins | Michelle Cashman | Megan Traynor |

A huge thank you to all these wonderful authors and publicists for believing in me and my blog. It truly means a lot to me! 

I also want to say a quick thank you to my parents. Thank you mom and dad for always believing in me and encouraging me to continue all my hard work. You guys are the definition of the best parents and I love you!

But, my biggest thank you would be to my readers. For always coming by my blog, for always leaving your thoughts in the comments below and for always supporting me. I couldn't have done it without you guys and I look forward to another year with you!

Now onto the fun stuff! The giveaway is still going on for a few more days so you have some time to enter! It has been so fun to see so many people from around the world enter my giveaway!
