Wow, can you believe it's been one year today since we started up the blog. This year has gone super quick and lets just say it's been a fantastic year -  we've never had so much fun. 

We wanted to start a blog because we have a passion to share books with other people and all the amazing bloggers, authors, followers and publishers that we've met over the last year each mean something to us. You've all helped us become successful and for that, we are truly grateful. We'd like to say a very special thank you to our guest reviewer Melanie for all her help with some of the review books - we couldn't do it without you! ;)

Lani Wendt Young said...

Congratulations on the one year mark, It takes incredible dedication and staying power to start a blog...and stick with it...and then have it be as successful as yours is! You ladies rock. I see so many friends of mine say (after reading my own blog) "Oh I want to start a blog!" And then they do...and 2,3,4 posts later? They disappear into that place where blogs go to die. Maintaining a blog is hard work and BookPassionForLife is such a rich, fun, and detailed book blog (hence tons of time and effort I imagine.) Happy anniversary

Alba said...
