Blogiversary – One Year Old!

blogiversary

Yessss I have been 3 days late for this, but my blog is now 1 year and 3 days old! I can’t believe I have lasted this long and how I enjoy keeping track of my blog. My passion of reading has definitely grown and I feel I have grown as a blogger as well ^_^

You can read my 1st blog post here. I can remember I was so scared in starting this up, will my blog be read by others, will I be able to keep track of it, be able to post quite regular and mostly will I still enjoy doing this after a couple of months. And I can safely say that all of the above is true!

I have gained already wonderful friends through blogging, having made contact with some of the best and awesome authors (Yes looking at you Nalini Singh, Claudia Connor, Melissa Foster and many more). I am part of several blog tour companies, such as Brook Cottage Books and Xpresso Book tours and a few more. I have such admiration for them, all the hard work they do to promote the authors and books, it is amazing to be part of this community.

Further I hope that in March I will change my website from missbookeater.wordpress.com to missbookeater.co.uk, so basically I want to change to a self-hosted WordPress website to enable a bit more features like Java and be able to use WordPress plugins for my reviews.

Once that changeover has been done, I will be hosting another giveaway.

Lastly I want to thank all my followers, I am truly humbled you are reading and following my blog – it does mean the world to me! You’re the best!

Lots of love,

Charlie

Twenty-one-year-old Natalia Stolfi is saying good-bye to the past-and turning her life upside down with a trip to the land down under. For the next six months, she’ll act like a carefree exchange student, not a girl sinking under the weight of painful memories. Everything is going according to plan until she meets a brooding surfer with hypnotic green eyes and the troubling ability to see straight through her act.

Bran Lockhart is having the worst year on record. After the girl of his dreams turned into a nightmare, he moved back home to Melbourne to piece his life together. Yet no amount of disappointment could blind him to the pretty California girl who gets past all his defenses. He’s never wanted anyone the way he wants Talia. But when Bran gets a stark reminder of why he stopped believing in love, he and Talia must decide if what they have is once in a lifetime . . . or if they were meant to live a world apart.
