1st Blogoversary!

A year ago today, I started ThirstforFiction. I can’t believe it’s been that long- because is certainly doesn’t feel that way! When I started ThirstforFiction, I didn’t know other YA book bloggers even existed, let alone there be a whole community! Since then, I’ve received numerous books from publishers for reviews (again, something I never realised happened until Headline contacted me, offering me Alex Bell’s debut novel Lex Trent vs the Gods…) I’ve also attended two publisher events, and done three interviews with authors! It’s been a fantastic year, far better than I could have dreamed 364 days ago.

Of course, (and here comes the cheesy bit!), I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the lovely YA books I read, so I must thank every author that has ever written a YA novel, as well as the publishers who publish them! Also, a very special thankees to the wonderful publishers Headline, Atom, Egmont, Orion and Puffin for sending me some wonderful books in the past year!

But most of all, I want to thank you -yes you, the reader! It’s been incredibly gratifying to see people read my reviews, comment and just be on the blog! It’s very rewarding to know that there are fellow book lovers out there!

Here’s to another 364 days!
