Dear all the lovely individuals who happen to venture here,
Dear friends, followers, readers, authors, dear all book lovers,
Thank you for making 2012 so amazing for me! This year has been filled with memorable books savoured, wonderful book reviews read, enthusiastic reviews written, warm and friendly comments swapped, and most of all, dear friends met.
I cannot believe the curtains of 2012 are drawing to a final close and in the midst of the cheers, applause, and embraces, a new year will tip-toe in. In creating this blog, I have not only been able to present a responsible and representative piece of myself to the world, but I've also been able to contribute positively to the young adult literary circle and I am grateful for everyone who have, back when I was a new blogger, taken me into this blogosphere with open arms.
Even when the situation became bumpy with the start of senior year, many of you have stuck by me and read my few reviews, offered wonderful comments, and brought a smile to my face. That alone has me truly grateful for having such fantastic readers on this little blog. I sincerely hope that my reviews and other posts have made a certain day brighter for you or have lead you to an enjoyable book.
There are so many unique and brilliant authors out there who endlessly feed our unrelenting thirst to read. Many appreciative thanks to them for giving us escape in their imaginative and vibrant realms and for giving us things to relate to, to passionately cry over, and to laugh over. (Gosh, I love parallel structure.)
Wishing everyone an incredibly happy and lucky New Year and cheers to a joyous 2013!
Recaps and more after the jump!
