Hitting A Milestone (or two)

The time has finally come and I don't know how to feel...excited, yes. Nervous, a little. But here we are...we have made it halfway to my one year blogoversary! So as a part of my 6-month Blogoversary, I'd like to take a look back over the past six months!

I've been astounded by so many things as I entered the blogging community. Back before I started blogging, I really had no idea how big the community was and it wasn't until May/June that I figured that out! I first started Novel Thoughts in March on Tumblr so it had seriously humble beginnings. I went two months without gaining a follower while reading and reviewing books. It wasn't until May that I moved over here to Blogger. That move was the best thing to happen to Novel Thoughts! It's been 6 months since being with Blogger and I have been amazing at the growth this site has seen! I've seen over 25,000 views, nearly 8k views a month, and now 500 FOLLOWERS!! It's just amazing to see how well it's done.

I just wanted to give a big thanks to you guys, my followers, for all of your supports and comments over the past six months. I would never be where I am right now if it weren't for you! So I just wanted to give a big thanks to you and here's to the next 6 months!

Because I have finally reached the milestone of 500 followers, I'm giving YOU (my awesome peeps!) not one giveaway...but THREE!

1. Thanks to Hyperion/Disney, I have one copy of DEMONGLASS by Rachel Hawkins for you.
2. Also, thanks to Sarah Ockler, who will be here during Zombie Week, I have a finished copy of FIXING DELILAH to give away.
3. And, finally, the biggest giveaway! Since November is my 6 month blogoversary AND now have 500 followers, you can win any November release book up to $15 from The Book Despository!

First giveaway starts tomorrow so stay tuned! Thanks again everyone!
