End of the Year Blog Post

2012 has been such an eventful year for Geraldine and I. Geraldine finally joined me in our school's Debate Team, I almost got into our class's honor roll and we activated our blog again (and we got more than 400 followers this year.) It's all these little things that make life so interesting, we've been blessed with such supportive people who cheer us on no matter what and we are so grateful for that. Well this is our End of the Year Blog Post where we great you all a happy, happy New Year and where we thank all the awesome peeps we stalked met and interacted with this 2012.

To the publishers/publicists and authors: I'd like to send an insanely huge thank you to Christine from HarperCollins and Ksenia from MacMillan because without these two ladies, our reading fire would not be fueled. It's these two lovely ladies that give us a little nudge to the right direction. Hee! I'm also giving possibly the biggest hug in the entire world to Amanda Sun who is an absolute rock star! She's just one of those authors that you know is a sweetheart once you meet her. Thank you so much for being my Twitter buddy! I hope 2013 will be an awesome year for you. Next up is Leigh Bardugo whose book is possibly the best Fantasy novel I have ever read. I've heard so many great things about her and hopefully I do get to meet her one day. There's also Josephine Angelini who has helped us out on numerous occasions with whatever we might need. She's an absolute angel. We have Sarah Rees Brennan who I just love. Period. She's such a joy over on Twitter and I do stalk her Tumblr as well. And really, thank you to all the authors out there who never take a break just so they can write us awesome books. Who think about their readers before themselves. Thank you!

To the Pinoy bloggers: just a shout-out to all the Filipino bloggers we've met over on Twitter (and in real life,) y'all are so awesome: Tiffany and Alyana from Read, Breathe, Read, Kai from Amaterasu Reads, Precious from Fragments of Life, Michelle and Nicole from The Twins Read, Dani from Book Whales, Kate from The Bookaholic BlurbsDianne from Oops! I Read It Again, Lyra from Defiantly Deviant, Leslie from just_another_book_lover, Michelle from Michelle Shouts Random! , Von from Mr. Book Wonder, Eunice from Compelled by Books, Kazhy from My Library in the Making, Dea from Teen Readers' Diary, JayJay from We Fancy BooksChyna from Lite-Rate-Ture! , Maricar from BlackPlume and Leanne from The Selkie Reads Stories. Thanks for being such lively and fun peeps! Big hugs.

To my Twitter peeps and other bloggers: I'd like to give a ginormous shout-out and hug to Nancy from Tales of a Ravenouse Reader who is actually one of the very first bloggers I met over Twitter some time ago. She's a lovely person! Also a big thank you to Alethea from Read Now Sleep Later who I got to meet last December 22nd when she came to visit the Philippines. She actually helped me with my Math problems before. Haha! And to Alyson from Kid Lit Frenzy who's also one of the very first bloggers I met before. It's great still having your blogger friends even after you take a hiatus... a very long one. Andye and Amy from Reading Teen have also been significant figures in my blogging life. They've always been so nice and supportive. It is such an honor to call them my friends. Onto the Twitter peeps, these two ladies are my fangirling buddies (haha!) Ashley [@FireStarBooks] and Lynn [@kuro_rin01]. Yup, they're both awesome. Like, awesome awesome. *flails* Jassie [@clapstompjump] is also one of my Twitter buddies. We talk about books and whatever else comes to mind which is great. I'd also like to give a big hug to Lucy from Fully Booked who is one of my Twitter BFFs. Who without fail always helps me out and she needs to be appreciated more. Mwah. You are all such great people! Hee! Thank y'all for everything.

To our blog and Twitter followers: We honestly would not be here without you so thank you for your support and continuous viewership. We love and appreciate you!

And lastly to Geraldine who's been my best bud for practically 3/4s of my life. Thanks so much for agreeing to do with blog with me. I love you, boo! Oh and of course, my parents too who water my book tree. I love you both. Mwah.
