One Year Blogoversary: Giveaway #1 CLOSED

Today marks my one year anniversary since I started blogging properly. I mean, I wrote a review back in May 2010, but it was awful. But back in September last year, I decided that I wanted to try my hand at blogging somewhat professionally. A lot has changed since then. My blog has gone through a name change, several design and layout changes, and my reviews continue to improve – I hope!

I want to thank all of you guys for following Books of Amber. I especially want to thank those of you who have stayed with me for this whole year. Those that come to mind immediately are Alice @ The Reader Room, Karen @ The Slowest Bookworm and Jodie @ Books for Company. Thank you all. *hugs*

I have a few ideas for improvements that I want to achieve this next year. I definitely need to start commenting on the blogs I follow more often. There are a few days a week in which I comment on almost every post I see on my feeder, but then there are other days when I only manage to comment on a couple. I’m determined to try harder. I’m also in the process of getting a new banner (don’t worry, ladies, Dean Winchester isn’t going anywhere!) and I expect I’ll probably change the design to fit it.

Now for the giveaway - I’m sure this is the part you’ve all skipped to! For the next few weeks I will be giving away some great books to my lovely followers. Today I’m going to start with a UK paperback edition of Glass Houses by Rachel Caine.


International! Yay! Go me!
