Happy birthday to my blog! + Q&A Announcement


So, my little book blog hit an important milestone last week – it turned a year old! *cue confetti and balloons falling from the ceiling*


I know we all say something similar but I can’t believe I made it to one year on this blog. I go through hobbies like they’re nothing – crocheting, tumblr, making fan videos, writing fanfiction, and Instagram. None of those lasted very long. I even tried knitting once and that was out the window in hours. But somehow this little blog has stuck and I don’t see myself ever giving it up. I attribute that largely to all of the incredible friends I’ve made on here. Some of you I don’t go a day without talking to and honestly my life would be boring without you! I wonder what I even did before joining the book community and how I spent all that time reading books without anyone to share my thoughts with or fangirl with.


I’ve been wracking my brain this past week on what I was going to do for my blogiversary. I wanted to do a giveaway but can’t swing it this month (might do a belated one in a few months instead). So, I decided to just do the Q&A I originally announced in February’s wrap-up. Β 

I already have a few questions from those comments but…

Does anyone have any questions for me? Book questions? Blog questions? Random questions?Β 

I’ll be making a separate post to answer all of the questions within the next week or two! 😊

  2. Congratulations Melissa, so happy for you! ❀ ❀ You have such a lovely blog and it's always so great to be able to chat together ❀ ❀
    SO YES, I have questions for you, if you allow me to ask quite a few…
    – What's the first YA book you remember reading ?
    – What's one place in the world you'd love to visit ?
    – What would be your dream job ?
    – Is there anything you LOVE about blogging that you didn't imagine you'd love doing, at first ? (if that makes sense? Haha) Also, is there on the contrary anything that's a struggle for you as a book blogger ? (Keeping up with schedule, comments or I don't know?)
    I will stop there haha sooooooooooorry oops. Congratulations once again and sorry I am curious! πŸ˜€

  3. Happy blogoversary!
    I have one: how much do you love me? 😏
    Jk. Seriously….what is your fave genre? Do you have a book that you could reread over and over…like on a desert island? Or a series? (I won’t be cruel like that!)
    Is there a prized book in your collection, or bookish item that means so much to you?
    And finally….how much do you love me? πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  4. Happy blogaversery!!! I love seeing how much time everyone has been blogging for and the dedication everyone has is amazing!
    My questions for you:

    What advice would you give to baby book bloggers just starting out?

    Has your reading tastes changed at all over the course of this year?

    What book did you read that you wouldn’t have read if it were not for the blogging community?

    Random: if you could have any animal as a pet mythological or otherwise what would it be?

  5. Congratulations on your one year blogiversary Melissa! It’s such an amazing acheivement and here’s hoping there are more years of you posting on WordPress to come! πŸ˜€
    I think I may have asked some questions before, if I didn’t I’m so sorry I must have missed your previous post, so I’ve tried to think of different ones to the ones I normally ask so these may get a little weird;
    + If you could have one kind of clairvoyant power (from TBS series) what would you pick and why?
    + If you had the power to change one thing about TBS series what would you pick and why?
    + If you had the opportunity to read one book again for the very first time what would you pick (not TBS though, I feel that’s an obvious answer for you)?
    + Would you rather be able to change your past or see into your future?
    + Other than books/laptop what would you say is the best thing you own?
    + What is your favourite quote of all time? Could be a book or otherwise one, any quote at all.
    + Would you rather never be able to read your favourite series ever again, or never be able to read any books yet to be released?
    Again congrats on your one year blogiversary, and I can’t wait to see your answers to all of the questions you’ve been asked! πŸ˜€

    • Thanks so much, Beth!! β™₯ 😁 And you did ask me questions on my other posts but YAY for more questions! I love these questions so much because TBS! I have the perfect answer for your first one but the rest are going to be so hard to answer lol. Still I love them and can’t wait to answer them along with your questions from the other post. 😊

  6. I love knitting haha! I find is so relaxing, but I have also been through a ton of hobbies in the same manner. So congrats on finding one that is just right for you and happy one year! We sure are lucky to have you ❀

    I really just want to know something about you that is completely unbook related. Anything really that we do not know and you are comfortable sharing. Maybe some random fun fact about yourself πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks so much, Danielle! β™₯ I feel like I lacked the patience for knitting πŸ˜‚. I got this kit with instructions and then watched videos but every time I tried it didn’t work out. I was pretty good at crocheting though and kind of miss doing it lol.
      And thanks for the question, I will definitely share a fun unbook related fact. 😊

  7. Happy Blog-versery Melissa!!
    Congratulations on doing this for a year. I am exactly the same when it comes to hobbies, I usually get so into them for a month or two then I’m like ‘im over this’. So glad blogging has stuck for both of us.

    A few questions:
    1) Do you have any blog goals? Where you would like to see your blog this time next year?
    2) If you were stuck on a desert island what book would you take?
    3) What was the book series that made you fall in love with reading?

    You don’t have to answer them all but I thought I would give you a few to consider πŸ™‚

    3. Can you touch your nose with your tongue or wiggle your ears or both?
    4. Would you rather clean or cook?

  9. Congratulations, Melissa!!! I totally understand where you’re coming from. I’m not one to commit to things either. I get bored easily, and/or I have the tendency to be incredibly lazy. I didn’t think I’d make it to a year either.

    But anyway! My questions are:

    – What’re your biggest blogging pet peeves that may cause you to unfollow a blog?
    – Favorite Disney princess?
    – If you were a Pokemon, what would you be?

    There we go. Congratulations once again! πŸŽ‰

    • Thanks so much, Analee!! πŸ’• I know a few people who have blogiversarys in March and I love how there are a few of us that decided March was the perfect time to start a book blog lol. And I’m so glad that we ended up meeting on here! I can’t wait to answer your questions. Choosing between Antari and Grisha is going to be hard. πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ


  14. Ahhh, I’m late but HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY MELISSA πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ Congrats on reaching 1 year β™₯

    I’m not sure if it’s too late for questions, but I’m going to ask some anyway. Also, sorry if these have been asked I’m on my phone so I can’t see.

    – What’s your favourite and least favourite part of blogging?
    – Is there anything about blogging that you didn’t expect when you first started?
    – What are some of your current favourite songs?
    – Is there a genre that you don’t usually read, but would like to try more of?

    • Thanks so much, Lilly!! πŸ˜πŸ’• I love talking with too and I am so glad I pushed through Crooked Kingdom. That book ended up being so worth it in the end despite still wishing there was more to the ending lol.

And got it, some more random facts!! 😊β™₯
