Fiction Freak Blogoversary Tour : Friends, Rants, & Help, OH MY!

Photobucket
WELCOME NIKKI & CONGRATS! ^_^
So. The absolute BEST thing about blogging is the friends you make. And I have very few, very awesome friends. Actually, all the people on this tour? SOME OF MY BEST BLOGGY FRIENDS EVER. Hmmm…I guess you can call this the “history” of my bloggy friends! :D
SO LIZZY HERE ON READAHOLICZ WAS MY VERY FIRST BLOGGY FRIEND! And this was what? Only 4 months ago? :D IT SEEMS LIKE ITS BEEN FOREVER!
During the summer, we talked every day for hours on end and we actually never ran out of topics. O_o BUT she’s a college girl now! So eep! She’s pretty busy, but we still manage to talk once a week. But she. Is. AWESOME. AND she’s helped me out a lot and given me so many books!
I met her, ironically, through a book trade through which I got Darkness Before Dawn! (I totally forgot what book I sent…Lizzy? What book did I send?)
[it was for Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne...i still havent read it yet =/]
Eventually, we started messaging through Goodreads, then emailing, then she gave me a heart attack my gchatting me (I had never used it before!).
But she was so fun and had so many awesome ideas! And she had a knack for finding awesome new bloggers and sniffing out giveaways (and winning half of em!)
[LOL, i am a persistent person ;D and you win as many as I do!]
I’m SO thankful to Goodreads! Lizzy = One of the best friends ever. She also sends me books. AWESOME BOOKS.
[Awww...thanks Nikki <3!]
EILEEN FROM ***SINGING AND READING IN THE RAIN*** is crazy. Seriously. And obsessive. (almost stalker-ish. Not quite). And she’s Asian. And likes to sing. And is obsessive. And loves Ash. And is obsessive. SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE YOU KNOW?
She rants ALL THE TIME and it’s what makes her Leeny! After all, I rant to her too. It’s a win-win thing. And she gets all my Iron Fey quips. And we debate. A LOT. Have you seen my interview with her? No? Click here.
I met her because, let’s just say we had something in common. =D And then I followed her on twitter and started replying and we started tweet-chatting every day. Then, every time I bought books (Almost every week) I would tweet her with “Should I buy this or that?”
And then…the YA Crush Tourney. That’s basically what sealed the deal. When ASH went against…what’s-his-name? Aiden? Well, Eileen and I basically bribed everyone to vote for Ash with giveaways IF he won.
I like to think it was us that made it such a hard battle, but it probably wasn’t lol. But that’s basically where we became Best Bloggy Friends!
XD Eileen is crazy. BUT SO AM I. So I think we’re good…speaking of, at the end of this tour, there’ll be a…debate.
SHREYA FROM CHOCOLATE COATED REVIEWS is seriously AWESOME. Not only is she MAJOR fun and supportive, she’s sent me a buttload of books that she hasn’t liked. And you guys. She hasn’t liked A LOT OF AWESOME ONES. And she lets me abuse her bookshelf once in a while. :P
I MET SHREYA…wow. I kinda forgot how!!! It feels like I’ve known her for forever…hmm…I think it was twitter. Again. Or email. EEP!
But I do know this is one awesome girl right here! And she is NEVER boring! (But on her bday…y’all should totally shower her with HAPPY BIRTHDAYS! She won’t take any presents. This is the best I can do. >:( )
ANNABELLE FROM SPARKLES AND LIGHTNING is someone I consider my friend, but I haven’t talked to her much! She’s explained some affiliate link stuff to me and led me through it step by step.
Also, she helps me decide what books I should get LOL. AND VENOM! SHE SQUEALS ABOUT VENOM WITH ME. SERIOUSLY. THAT’S AWESOME BY ITSELF.
Where I met her: TWITTER!!!! I seem to be meeting a whole bunch of people on Twitter! :D
FIONA PAUL, AUTHOR OF VENOM. I STILL CANT BELIEVE HOW AWESOME SHE IS! And she puts up with my continue harassm—conversation. And she helps me with some promo stuff! For her book, I mean! She’s done a guest post and author interview (and…I may ask for a character interview sometime later?)
AND she’ll also be posting for my Blogoversary tour! Seriously, how awesome can an author get? She also sent me bookmarks! EEK! AND she used the banner I made for her blog AND the banner I made for her blog tour AND she put my fan art on her sidebar! :O
How I met her: TEEN AUTHOR CARNIVAL! So I was SUPER shy, but I managed to ask when VENOM ARCs would be sent to bloggers (not like I would have a chance to get one. Still. Might as well ask!) and SHE GAVE ME THE ONE SHE HAD BROUGHT. AND SIGNED IT. And :O.
I was SO EXCITED! I read it on the subway to my hotel lol. Also, just to tell you how shy I was, I only got 5 pieces of swag! (Which I got when no one was looking. SHYNESS!)
