{Giveaway} Book Briefs 6 Year Blogoversary!

February 24, 2017 Giveaways 38

I have come such a long way in the past 6 years. When I started back in 2011 I was in my first year of law school. Since then I have graduated, passed the bar exam and I have been an attorney for 3 years already. (That is still kind of crazy to me.) I found a job that I love, and my blog has been there with me every step of the way.

When I first started my blog, I had no idea about indie or self published authors, and in the past 6 years I have discovered some of my favorite authors were indies! I have made so many great friends in bloggers and authors, and I want to share some of it with you.

I never thought that anyone would read and follow my blog, let alone over 19,000 of you! The fact that I have that many followers continually blows my mind.

One of my favorite parts about blogging is finding new authors, and new blogs, so I am going to ask for recommendations from you guys! Please leave a comment with a new author and/or blog that I should check out! (or 5!)

I’m not going to bore you with facts and figures about my blog. I am just going to say this, my blog has been a labor of love. I have worked so hard on maintaining it and reading and providing the best honest reviews that I can. I am so proud of how far this blog has come. I love how many books and reviews I have shared with you guys (almost 1,300 book reviews!!!) and how many giveaways I was able to provide.   I love each and every commenter, blogger, publisher and author that I have met through Book Briefs, and I can’t wait to meet so many more!


Thank you all!

    I’m re-reading NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman right now. It is unique & fascinating.

  2. Cassie

    Happy Blogoversary! I love the instragram pics – you make books looks soooo pretty!!! I love reading your reviews and I am looking forward to see much more from y’all in the years to come…..

  3. Kristina Oden

    Congratulations! I Love Bloglovin’!! I am looking forward to reading Cage of Deceit. And if you haven’t watched The Blacklist, you’re missing out. James Spacer is the best he’s ever been. Red Reddington is awesome!

  4. John Smith

    You absolutely must read “Coinman” by Pawan Mishra. It is self-published, but exceptional. You may find it odd, but its insights into its quirky cast of characters are excellent!

    I would be must excited to win my choice of books from the book pile.

  5. rhi

    congratulations on the blogversary! That is a huge achievement. Book rec. This was an anthology from last year but it has really stuck with me: Clones; the Anthology. It was a rare – at least to me- instance of an anthology that held together very well with novellas that actually worked as novellas, and was on an interesting topic. It was fun to see the different takes on clones.

  6. danielle hammelef

    I’m excited for the choosing of books from your picture! thanks for the giveaway and congrats! I would recommend the Banished series by Kimberley Griffiths Little.

  11. Lisa Mandina (Lisa Loves Literature)

    So, I recently discovered Nicole Archer’s book Road-Tripped, it was one of my favorite books at the end of last year. As to what prize I’m most excited about? Well, there are so many good ones! Possibly the Cad and the Coed by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid. Happy blogoversary!

    And the blog will keep growing, together with you, as long as you continue working on it with the same love and passion for books ♥ I wish you all the best, and a super happy blogiversary, Michelle!!! *six years, OMGOMGOMG*
    I’m an INT subscriber, so the only prize I can be excited about is the grand one, a.k.a., the TBD prize. Which is PERFECT, because there’s one book I’d love to buy, and since I depend on giveaways to buy books from BookDepository, winning it would be A-W-E-S-O-M-E 😀 😀
    I finished reading ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS (Stephanie Perkins) a week ago, but I’m still in this mood of wanting to scream I WANT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD TO READ THIS PERFECT, CUTE, ADORABLE, LOVELY BOOK!! So, if you haven’t read it yet, here’s my rec!!! You’ll love it ^^

    • Antonela

      Yeah… I know there are other INT prizes, but TBD is the only website that has free shipping to my country; plus, I’m not a big fan of reading ebooks *and I don’t have an e-reader ahahaha*
