What a year! This is my first year to fully engage myself in the world of blogging. I have met so many amazing people from authors, publishers and fellow bloggers. I owe a huge THANK YOU to so many special people!!
I love books so much and owe a huge thank you to my amazing Mom for my love of books. She began reading to be from before I was born until I was able to read a book on my own. She instilled in me the importance of reading and understanding the meaning behind the book. She gave me my imagination and instilled in me the importance of using it. Thank you Momma!!! I just hope that I will be able to continue my love of books with my Son so that he will know how important it is.
I have met so many amazing blogger friends through this year but there are two that are extremely important to me. First, my blog designer, Ren Reidy. She is absolutely phenomenal and answers any questions I have with no hesitiation. She built me an amazing blog that is easy to work with and helps me share my love of books. So thank you Ren for being the ROCKSTAR that you are!!

The other amazing blogger friend is Melissa Marie. If I ever have any doubts as to what book to read next or if I am in a bind and cant seem to get into a book I know I can message her and she will give me her honest opinion. Every book she has recommended to me I have absolutely loved! So a big thank you to you Melissa for helping me through my "next book" decisions!! :)

My next and last thank you is to all the amazing ROCKSTAR authors out there! I have so many authors that I absolutely love and adore! They are the ones who respond to fans and really care about what we think about their books! They are the ones who keep me up late at night because I am unable to put down the phenomenal books that they have written. Their characters take me to another world and make me feel what they feel. When an author can write a book that truly stays with you even after you are finished then they deserve a shout out and a huge THANK YOU!!
