My Blog Turns Two Today & There is a Fun Giveaway!

It's a Book Life Officially Turns Two Today!!!

Let's party like these Snuggie people!

The meaning of this post is three fold. One, I want to open up to you a bit more and share some fun facts about myself. Two, I have a full paragraph with an accompaning gif to show how much I love every single one of my followers. Three, I am hosting a very fun giveaway!

Top Ten Facts About Me

1. I go by Kay on the blog but my real first name is actually Allison. Kay is just my middle name.

2. I love movies (not as much as books... calm down) and I re-watch my favorites a lot, especially The Help, Pitch Perfect, and Tangled.

3. To the right is a photo of my two bookcases! *A more detailed post featuring my bookshelves will be on the blog at a later date in the nearish future.

4. I am not, nor will I ever be, a morning person.

5. I work part-time at my local library. I love it!

6. I have an obsession with putting sugar-free vanilla syrup in my Diet Pepsi.

7. I get easily scared. Mostly just the creepy girl from the well in the Ring movies completely freaks me out.

8. Old Navy clothes are cheap, comfortable, and my favorite.

9. I went to Harry Potter World for my honeymoon.

10. I may live in Illinois, but thanks to my family roots I am a die hard Minnesota Vikings fan.

A HUGE Thank You to My Followers

I honestly don't know if I would have stuck with this blog for two full years if it were't for the daily support from my lovely followers. All of you are freaking awesome. Thanks for every comment, tweet, shout-out on your blog, and simply for just reading my posts. I love reading, but I almost love sharing my bookish thoughts with you all and hearing your bookish thoughts in return more, almost. I look forward to another amazing blogging year... hopefully with even more awesome posts to come! Now let's get to the good stuff.

  1. Happy Blogiversary! Two years is very exciting :) Very cool idea for the giveaway! I love doing these kinds of puzzles -- especially when they're not *too* hard.

    And I LOVE Pitch Perfect -- I may not be quite as obsessed as my husband, but let's just say we've watched the DVD many times :) Jesse is just too freakin cute -- but don't worry, my husband has a big Hollywood crush on Anna Kendrick so I'd say we're even :)

    1. Thanks Christine! I'm glad you had fun playing for the giveaway! I wanted to do something a little different and fun.

      So I'm really glad to hear you LOVE Pitch Perfect as well. To be honest, I may have a small crush on Jesse and Anna Kendrick. lol ;)

  2. Great giveaway hun, all entered and talked about. :)

  3. Happy Blogiversary! :D thanks for the giveaway :D

    1. Thanks! You are very welcome. Good luck!

  4. Happy 2nd Blogoversary! :D Tangled is one of my favorite movies too. No joke I must have seen it at least 20 times by now. I always love these kind of guess the cover giveaways, so much fun!

    1. I think I may have seen Tangled even more times than that lol BUT it is just so cute. :D

  5. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY KAY!! Congrats on two years! I bet it doesn't feel like two years already, does it? I am so happy we met through blogging! I love talking books with you :)

    And how stupid am I? I answered the first book cover so quickly that I forgot your second hint and answered with the other C book. Derp.

    Also I am scared of everything. I love that you are a football fan. I'm jealous of your work at the library.

    And while i'm going out of order - thanks for the giveaway :) I love guessing the covers!

    1. Thanks Nicole! I'm grateful every day for my blog because it lead me to our friendship. :D I can't believe it has been two years...time flies.

      HAHAHA I think that is the only tricky one. As soon as I made it I had to double check that both books' Cs were a little different, and sure enough they are! ;)

      I'm glad I'm not the only scaredy cat.

      Good to hear that you had fun with the giveaway! I was trying to spice it up a little.

  6. Aw, happy blogoversary! This is my first visit here (thanks for stopping by TMG), but your blog is adorable. Here's to two more happy years. :)

  8. Happy Blogoversary!! I love this kind of giveaway. I just hope i guessed them right :D
