Blogoversary Giveaway #1

Guess what?! Today my blog turned one!

A year ago, if anyone had told me I’d be blogging for this long, I probably wouldn’t have believed them. A) because while I love reading, writing things down has always been a challenge, regardless of whether it’s an essay or a note to myself (the thought of even picking up a pen makes my mind go blank!) and B) because I didn’t think anyone would care about what I had to say.

So a huge thank you to everyone who has seen my ramblings, taken the time to leave comments, emails or Tweets for me to read and welcomed me on Twitter after I solemnly vowed to myself that I wouldn’t ever join a social networking site (I’ve been immensely pressured to join Facebook by my friends but I haven’t caved to that yet – go me!). As well, I’d like to say a massive thanks to all the authors and publishers who have provided me with books to review, answered interview questions or written a guest post.

Anyway, here's the part you really care about. I'm going to give one person the chance to pick two books from the following:  
Waterfall (River of Time #1) by Lisa T. Bergren (check out my review)
Darker Still (Magic Most Foul #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber
All These Things I've Done (Birthright #1) by Gabrielle Zevin
Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1) by Richelle Mead
Isle of Night (The Watchers #1) by Veronica Wolff
Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott
Shattered Dreams by Ellie James
