IT'S MY FIRST BLOGOVERSARY!! + Giveaway


As I'm sure you saw from my title, today is my first blogoversary!! I have been blogging for a whole year now. I honestly didn't think I'd last this long. And look, here I am!! I AM SO THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE. And I'm just super giddy right now... It's been a year!! 


Let's start with the story behind APCB. In February 2014 I created a blog for a science project on blogspot. After getting used to the functions I realized I wanted to start a blog. I was an avid reader of blogs, and friends kept pushing me to start one since I wrote reviews on Goodreads. A friend helped me come up with the name "A Perfection Called Books," and then I created the blog! I had no idea what I was doing so I cross-posted a lot of Goodreads reviews. Looking back I can't help but cringe at them. Oh the memories... I still remember getting my first comments and being totally petrified. Want to know something embarrassing? I never wrote an introduction post. I just went right to work with posting reviews. Hahaha I know, I messed up on day one. Then I went through long dry spells of forgetting to post... I've since fumbled my way through blogging, learning things bit by bit each day. I've loved every minute of it though.

Whoa.

I've made so many great friends through blogging. I adore you all!!

Olivia @ Fictionally Obsessed ~ Liv was the first blogger friend I made! We both started blogging around the same time. We collaborated, we fangirled together, she's a great friend. She also is the genius behind my blog designs! I'm so glad I met you hun <33

Dana @ Dana Square ~ I met Dana through Twitter back in July, and I am SO glad I did. She's the best co-blogger ever. We have lots of ideas (many of which are in the process of happening!), and I love our late-night Google Chat calls that are semi-productive. We think so alike and watch the same tv shows. We are alike in so many ways, and I know I've found a true friend in her. Thank you so much for everything, Dana!! <33

Britt @ Please Feed The Bookworm ~ Britt is like the big sis I never had. She's my go-to girl whenever there's a book event in town. I love seeing this bright and happy person. We talk a lot and initially bonded over our love of Throne of Glass. Britt is a generous and kind and lovely person with the biggest heart I know. <33

Zoe @ Stories On Stage ~ I met Zoe on Goodreads, and I absolutely adore her reviews and blog. She was one of the forces that made me want to start blogging!! She leaves such sweet and thoughtful comments, the one she left on my post about plagiarism made me tear up, I just wanted to reach through the screen and hug her so much. She's so supportive and smart and wonderful. <33

Montana @ The Book Belles ~ I've read Montana's gorgeous blog for a really long time. We started talking on Goodreads, and she's been so helpful and patient by answering all my newbie questions. She's a genuinely sweet and sincere person, and I'm so glad I've gotten to know her!! <33

And to the bloggers who have left me comments, who talk with me on twitter, whose blogs I stalk, I thank you:
