    Your blogoversary was SO much fun Giselle, although I can imagine all the work you must have put into it! I loved reading each of your posts, it was too much fun. <3 I can't wait to see where you take your blog in the future, and I'm also excited to keep on reading your seriously fabulous reviews.

    Hi Giselle!

    I just wanted to tell you that your posts for this week of your blogoversary have been SO informative and helpful to me as a new book blogger-I’m sad that it’s come to an end =(. I know I don’t know you, but based on your interactions with other people on your blog, you seem like such a genuine person, and have quickly become one of my favourite bloggers so far!

    Thank you for all these amazing giveaways this week. *fingers crossed* I win one. This particular giveaway didn’t let me put the country I am from, so I’ll let you know here: Canada.

    Here’s to many more years of book blogging! Best of luck always =)
