It's My One Year Blogoversary! (Giveaway)



Today, August 22, 2012 is my one year blogoversary!!!
*does happy celebration dance*

Hey, Cupcakes! I CANNOT believe that my little ol' blog is a year old. 
They grow up so fast *snifflesniffle*

When I started Word Spelunking a year ago all I knew was that I wanted to talk about books with other bookgeeks and wordnerds. I never imagined the awesome community and world I would find myself in or the incredible time I would have book blogging. It has been an amazing, fun and fanfriggintabulous year.

 I've met so MANY wonderful bloggers, readers and authors who make every moment of blogging so worth it! I want to thank EVERY single one of you awesometastic Cupcakes for every follow, comment, kind word, fun discussion, generous help and well, for just being so awesometastic!!! Without y'all I'd just be some weird gal talking to myself about my book and cupcake obsession, but for some reason all you fabby fab people continue to visit my blog, read my reviews and talk books with me. Heck, without the many OMGYOUMUSTREADTHISBOOK recs I wouldn't have discovered many of the great books I've read in the last year *coughHungerGamescough*. And, to all the amazing authors and publishers who send me ARCs and books for review, ask me to participate in blog tours, or stop by the blog for interviews, guest posts and giveaways, thank you so much for trusting me with your words, believing in me and keeping me in endless hours of reading material.

I wish I could bake all of you a dozen cupcakes, but I do have the next best thing...
