2nd Blogoversary + In My Mailbox (23)

I interrupt this IMM post for a slightly special announcement: I've been so busy this week that I actually MISSED my blogoversary. But I guess it's not really important that I did. What's important is this: I've been blogging for TWO years now. Wow. That's a long time. And judging by the amount of books in my TBR pile, I won't be stopping anytime soon. 

I'd like to thank these wonderful people:

Brodie from Eleusinian Mysteries! The girl who started it all. We met at the forum of Hush, Hush Fansite, Fallen Angel, and then we became good tweeting friends. She encouraged me to do all of this and she was with me (virtually) every step of the way! She's a constant in my blogging and twitter life! <3

Kai from Amaterasu Reads, my friend and book sistah! We usually meet every few months to borrow books from one another. We hosted Christmas Countdown and Dystopian Domination and are now hosting Dystopian Domination 2. She's the best layout, techie person to talk to when it comes to blogging issues. I love talking to her - my inbox is filled with her emails!

A big, big, big thank you to my readers, all the bloggers I've met, publicists I've worked with and authors that I met and became friends with! Of course, Fragments of Life won't thrive without all of you! Thank you! I hope that you'll continue to enjoy reading reviews, interviews and guest posts, enjoy joining giveaways and participating in blog events!

Back to our normal post: So it’s time for another IMM! In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren, in which we get to discover the new books that each blogger got for the week. It also encourages us to connect with other bloggers.
