The Book Goddess turns 1! - Blogoversary and Giveaway!


Hey guys!
If you missed my 2012 Recap, Reading Challenges and 2013 post yesterday, CLICK here.
I hope you're having a fabulous New Year celebration! Anyway, I just remembered yesterday(!) that this blog would be turning one. ONE. I just can't actually believe that I created this blog last year and it survived (unlike my three dead blogs before but anyway).

- Thank you to all my followers and friends.
Before this all gets out of hand and I cry like an annoying baby, I just want to say THANK YOU so much to all my followers and stalkers and friends. I had 3 dead blogs before creating The Book Goddess on the 1st January, 2012. I didn't expect that it would survive. And I didn't expect how much I would love blogging and how fun it is to talk about books with you guys. Blogging is one of the best decisions of my life. Seriously. I'm still one of the baby bloggers but I just want to thank you all for making me feel welcome! :) Love ya, guys!

And I've hit the 500 followers mark! - I know this may not seem like a high number of followers but to ME, it is. Because I still am shocked and happy that people are actually reading and commenting on my posts and reviews. Still can't believe it. I wanna hug all of you.

Now that the boring part's out of the way, here's my giveaway!
 
1 winner will win either one of the books from My Top Reads of 2012 OR My Dying-To-Read-Books in 2013.
1 winner will win a swag pack from me.
International.
The book I will buy/pre-order (depending on what the winner picks) will be from The Book Depository.
The swag pack I will post myself. But still international.
Just fill out the Rafflecopter and comment on the comment section below.
 
1 WINNER will get to choose from one of the books:
My Top 10 Reads of 2012
 
OR
 
My Dying-To-Read-Books in 2013
(I know this doesn't have the same books as my list last week, but I had to get books for the giveaway that I can pre-order from TBD straight away.)
 
 
1 WINNER will get this bookish swag pack - include: some signed bookmarks, postcards, trading cards, stickers etc.
 
Sorry for the crappy picture, my camera hates me. Sigh.
 
 
a Rafflecopter giveaway

  2. Awww, happy blogoversary!!!!!!!!! This is such a huge deal, I can't even put it to words. I'm so happy for you, Jana! So glad you started your blog so we could become friends. And I hope your blog has many, many birthdays in the future. It's one of my faves.

    As for what book I'd choose...YOU KNOW I'M INDECISIVE, JANA. Right now I'm thinking Forever My Girl, but my mind may change. But...I wanna read that book so bad. So who really knows? I don't even know. NO ONE KNOWS. Okay. Okay.

  18. Happy Blogoversary! Time goes by so quickly, but one year still feels like a long time! I've enjoyed following your blog and reading your reviews. I look forward to your posts each week as you contribute to my TBR recommendations!

    As for the giveaway, I'd probably choose Taken by Erin Bowman or Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. At the beginning of 2012, there were so many books I was looking forward to, I didn't think 2012 could be topped! But knowing the 2013 releases coming up, it just gets better every year!

    Thank you!!

    I have just 'found' author Jennifer Armentrout!! I am hooked!! Started with Obsidian this weekend. Can not wait to read her entire collection!!
    Needless to say - Opal would be a great addition to my library. Even in the age of technology - I still love a 'real' book. The smell, feel, and just turning the pages still gets to me.
