HAPPY ONE YEAR BLOGOVERSARY TO HER BOOK THOUGHTS!!!
Can you believe its almost a year!? I can’t believe the blog survived. I can’t believe I survived. When I first started blogging I didn’t even imagine that I’ll draft a post for a blogoversary. I didn’t even know the word blogoversary before. When I planned for my blogoversary, I thought a lot of things, a lot of FUN posts and giveaways…. but I decided to just do a very simple post. Just a post full of THANK YOU’S. To books… to authors… to readers,… to co-bloggers…. to YOU. We might not get a chance to mention everyone, that doesn’t mean we weren’t thinking of you.
I wanna give thanks to my fellow book bloggers. Without you all, I’m 100% sure that I left book blogging loooooooong time ago. You guys keep me going.
To Faye, who is the first blogger that I stalked, thanks for existing and being oh-so-friendly. And I’m sorry to say this but, I WAS INTIMIDATED by you. Hahaha!!! But I want everyone to know this: FAYE IS A WONDERFUL PERSON AND A RIOT. She’s a delightful person to interact with.
To DRE, who is LITERALLY the reason why I’m still here. MAAAASTER. I can’t wait to meet you in person. I have no idea what made you host me and other blogs but I wanna know that I’m REALLY REALLY grateful.
To Amir, who I want to meet in person as well. Thanks for being so kind and supportive to EVERYONE! Seriously, you’re like this pretty awesome encourager for every book blogger you know (including me :P)
To Aimee and Shannelle, you young ladies are inspirations! Seriously, sometimes I look at your blogs and just… wow. You’re both so talented and precious to me. Can’t wait to meet you both in person too. And know this, I’ll hug you both so tight.
To Jules, Miguel, Ate Joy, Ella, Hazel, Ate Irish, Carmel and Kyla, Inah, and fellow Filipino book blog and twitter buddies!!! You guuuuuys, thanks for always talking to me about anything. For tolerating my selfies. For entertaining my silly questions. You have no idea how much I appreciate you ALL.
To Val, Kelly, Mishma, Jeann, Keionda, Melanie and fellow book blogger who even though doesn’t share the same timezone with me, still feels like friends IRL… you guys make me so happy. I don’t know why did you even bother to check out my blog… but I just wanna say thanks.
To Christina, who gave me a chance to become her co-blogger. I can’t wait for you to come back and blog again. Thanks for trusting me and helping me a lot.
To authors like Melissa Pearl, Theresa Kay, Marci Lynn Curtis, Jennifer Murgia, Lisa Amowitz and many more…. thank you for being so friendly and entertaining my fangirling.
To Omoye… who entrusted me with a huge responsibility and made me realize that there’s a lot of things that I’m capable of… thanks Omoye! <3
To Marga and Rhea *sniffs* Do I even have to say anything? I didn’t even know why you applied as my co-blogger, but know that I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL. I LOVE YOU BOTH LIKE SRSLY YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
To readers, whether its because of our reviews, or because of our discussion posts, or just because of giveaways… I have no idea why you guys keep coming back, just know that I appreciate you all.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Her Book Thoughts has completed 365 days and Paula has completed 8766 hours of being a complete, kick-ass, blogger person!
I honestly don’t even know how to begin thanking Paula! She’s just such a wonderful person and I do believe this girl is incapable of anger. She updates the blog, manages all posts, keeps us all co-bloggers in line (hehe, kidding) while also managing to post every other day. Being a part of Paula and Her Book Thoughts has helped me make so, so many new friends, not to mention I have someone to always help out, no matter where I need the help! You know I love you, Paula <3
Thank you Faye, Aimee, Nia, Carmel & Kyla, Marga, Miel, Justine, Maryam and all my other Twitter friends I know I’m forgetting. You guys are always available to talk to and just generally awesome people. A girl needs people like you in life. And I know you all thanks to my part in HBT and that makes me so happy 🙂
Thank you also to Valerie, Shannelle, Amir, Lola, Suzi Q, KimbaCaffeinate, Nova and Keionda for always stopping by and leaving us your thoughts. Your comments and love are always, always appreciated and never fail to bring a smile to our faces 🙂

And I didn’t even know if you guys were updated, but last month, I searched for new co bloggers. And here they are. THANKS SO SO MUCH for all of those who applied. I’m so excited to have Marla and Sam on board. I love them both already.
I’m Marla Mei but please just call me Marla. I really don’t like it when people call me by my full name. I’m a 19-year old college student with hopes of becoming a CPA someday so I can have lots of money to spend for traveling with my family and buying more books (obviously) to satisfy my addiction.
When I’m not reading I usually spend my time solving accounting problems and partying it hard with my textbooks. So exciting!!!
I read a lot because if I don’t I’d probably go crazy with all the numbers in my head and the never-ending weariness accounting is giving to me. Sometimes a girl just needs a break. Can’t have a break without books. And a kitkat.

Five facts about me:
- I use OMG a lot and talk in exclamations and capital letters especially when I’m super excited.
- I have a bad habit of alternating between biting my nails and cracking my knuckles whenever I have nothing to do with my hands. Give me something to do! Preferably something that won’t make me get up from my chair.
- The last time I got invited to play chess with my cousins, they thought I was some chess goddess so of course, I had to tell some random excuse just so I could get out of it without tainting my chess goddess title. I HAVE NEVER LEARNED HOW TO PLAY CHESS AND I HAVE NO INTENTIONS TO DO SO.
- If I don’t like the taste of the food I’m eating, I’d just put ketchup on it and everything will be right in my world.
- I used to think TL;DR was an emoticon. (So sorry for the ignorance.) Thank God I haven’t used it.
