Blogoversary Celebration: A Reading Nurse & The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club


Book Addicts!!! 

It's almost my blogoversary *throwing confetti* and I wanted to do something BIG 'cause the first blog birthday is important. It's the first year I started blogging about books, the first year I get to meet y'all, the first year I got the chance to meet amazing authors and work with them and the very first year I had the chance to be part of this amazing and big book world. 


And I can't thank you enough for all your support: for the comments, for following my different sites and for entering my giveaways. This is why I wanted to celebrate all of this with you.

My blogger sister Anasheh, started a month earlier, and together we have been running The Fantastic Flying Book Club tours. Since she's amazing and I wouldn't dare celebrating something like this without her, we are celebrating our blogoversaries together. 
Anasheh started blogging in March 8th and since then we have seen a lot of reviews and other fun stuff on her site. It was a pleasure to meet her and I wouldn't know what I'd do without her!
I started my blog in April 21st. I can't believe I started it with Rosario, my friend from college, and we ended up setting up this wonderful site.
After a month of trying to understand the blogging and book world, we ended up organizing blog tours, 'cause authors also needed help and to show them that we support them and love them! That's how The Fantastic Flying Book Club was "born". And we have met some amazing and successful authors that we are proud to call friends.

Now it's just me blogging at The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club and Anasheh at A Reading Nurse. And together we still working really hard every month with our Fantastic Flying Book Club tours. 


So to celebrate all this, we have some amazing authors that would be stopping by this month and the following one (March & April) and there would be a lot of amazing stuff going on: interviews, guest posts, deleted chapters... AND GIVEAWAYS!!

Want a sneak peak of who's stopping by? Check all the authors:

    1. Hi Kate! It's always nice to read about books that you've read. Sometimes you actually share the same feelings and even you read about things that you haven't realized at first. And giveaways are a pretty amazing incentive ;)

  9. HUISJDHFIOSDFHOSDHFOD AAARG I NEED THIS BOOKS SO BAAAAAAD!!! Thank you very much for this AMAZING giveaway guys!!!

    And about what I love to see in book blogs it's simple: good reviews. When you write a review it's important to convince everyone how much you loved that book, you have to make them see that they will love it as much as you did :) Wow, IMM and other meme's are interesting and stuff, but I think a good book blog relies on reviews. :3
