Xpresso Reads’ Blogoversary Kick Off

Posted by

Welcome to my 1 year blogoversary celebration week kick-off! 
Get ready for a week of awesome posts and epic giveaways!
Xpresso Reads turns 1!

Xpresso Reads turns one TODAY (September 9th) and I have a great week planned for my fabulous followers, readers, and friends who made it all happen! Without all of my supporters, I wouldn’t be where I am today after only one year. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I started my blog and I am overwhelmed with how much it all means to me now. The blogging, of course, but I have made friends for life as well. I have completely changed the way I see authors and publishers who intimidated me so much just a year ago. I have posts planned that will go into more details on these subjects so Today is just a kick-off THANK YOU and welcome to my blogoversary celebration week! I hope you love what I have planned for you!

What do I have planned? 

Every day I will be posting about different subjects on what an exciting year I had. I will be thanking so many people, talking about my experiences as part of the blogging community, and also answer the questions that I get on a regular basis about my blog. So, this week is all about me? Well yes, yes it is. >.< I will be posting my scheduled reviews as well so you won't miss any epic (or failed) reads!

Did you say giveaways?
What’s a party without some prizes? Every day this week I will be including giveaways where you can win some fabulous books, swag, and book related surprises. I have SO many incredible authors and publishers who were very generous to help me make this celebration the best it can be! So don’t forget to thank them along the way. They helped make this week fantastic! Plus, where would we be without these fabulous people? *gasp* So THANK YOU to the fabulous authors and publishers who offered goodies for this event. It means the world!
What better way to launch this blogoversary bash than with a chance to win a few of my very favorite books!
