Happy 5th Birthday, A Backwards Story! Celebrate with an Epic GIVEAWAY!!!

Today marks the FIVE-YEAR anniversary of this blog. 

A Backwards Story, Happy Birthday!!!

In my first year, I had 30-odd posts for the entire YEAR.  Now, I tend to have that many posts in a single month.  My first year, I had less than 20 followers.  I made a New Year's Resolution to get serious about blogging and now, four years later, the blog is flourishing!

I have experienced so many amazing moments through blogging, made great friends, and been granted stunning opportunities.  It's because of all of you that I'm still doing this and still enjoying it. You've helped shape the books I read, my interests, and the way I view the world. The blogging landscape has changed so much in the last five years, and I've been blessed to be a part of it.

Thank you all, whether you've been with me for a long time now or whether we've only met recently. I love you all and hope we'll spend many more years together!

To celebrate, I'd like to share my love of the written word with you, my most loyal friends.  In honor of hitting a milestone year -- FIVE!! -- I'd like to give presents to FIVE of you. One for each year!

You can choose ANY TITLE on my 2015 TBR list!!!!

 I already have 150 books listed that I'm dying to read on my TBR list...and I'm sure that number will be higher before the first ends on March 2nd!

(Also...let me know if there's something NOT on my list that should absolutely be on my radar! Especially because...If it makes my list, you might win a copy for yourself! Keep in mind that high fantasy and fairy tale retellings make up my favorite reading genres, though I also like to experiment. A good book is a good book, after all! ♡)

Maybe you want to win a hot upcoming release?
We're getting SO MANY amazing new books this year!!!!! Here's a sample of what you could win!

You could also win a drool-worthy book that's already out and readily available to have it in your hot little hands right away! Here's another small sample of titles you can choose from!

Don't forget...You can find the complete list of titles here:

And if we're not already friends, go ahead and add me to see what other titles I add that you can win! 
(Just leave a response in the comment box or I'll ignore it as spam. I always want to make sure it's a legitimate new friend!  ^^)

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me each week.  I hope you continue to come back and discover great new books to read!

This giveaway is INTERNATIONAL as long as Book Depository ships to your country!

Usually, I don't require anything for you to enter a giveaway. I hate when blog giveaways require stuff. But since this is a THANK YOU to all of you, my friends, I'll be requiring that you're a follower. Especially since I'm only 8 followers away from 1,400 friends...and then another hundred from a milestone of 1,500! Let's make this milestone anniversary year special. WE'VE GOT THIS!
