My Summer Girl Books Turns Two!

I have almost no clue what to say about My Summer Girl Books hitting such an awesome milestone. This blog has been live for two full years. I'm at a loss to express how these feels. Never, in my biggest daydreams, did I think I could keep something like this going for so long. True, there are days where the writing or the reading is so hard I'm not sure I can stand another minute of it. Yet, I do because this is something I love so much.

Thank you. These are the words I'm having the hardest time putting together. Thank you so much to all of those who commented on my posts, who read my blog, who just know that this blog exists. You're a small part of what keeps me coming back to this every week. Thank you to the very nice publicists who have included me on projects, who made me feel valued. Thank you to the publishers who've sent me ARCs or other books or little treats to keep me encouraged. Thank you to all of the authors who've contacted me, talked to me and been so incredibly nice. Thank you everyone, for making me feel like I and my opinions have worth. Thank you for letting this blog be an outlet for my love of books. Thank you other bloggers for being constant role models and inspirations to me.

All I can do in this moment is be proud of what I've accomplished with so much help. I love you all and hope that you will continue to read My Summer Girl Books in the future. It's going to be epic.

Now, enough of the happiness and teary eyes, there is contest to be held!
