One Year Blogiversary!

It is exactly a year to the day that Above Average Below Special became a Book Blog!
One Year in Numbers
Books Read= 99.
Reviews Posted= 55.
Total Posts= 169.
5 Heart Reviews= 8.
I honestly didn't know whether I'd make it to a year when I post my first post last year!
I'd tried blogging before but what with work, university and life I ended up abandoning it. However after exams I came back and made Above Average Below Special solely a book blog! It's been a great year and I've thoroughly enjoyed it!
Things I learnt/ gained from Blogging!
New Genres~ Dystopia and New Adult.
The Art of Reviewing.
How publishing really works.
The value of EBooks.
The Blogging Community.
Social Media.
How to make headers.

Jen Frederick who wrote one of my favourite reads from May very generously agreed to do a giveaway to celebrate!
I will be doing a couple more Blogiversary posts expanding on things I've learnt this year and what I've loved throughout the month!
I just want to thank everyone who follows this blog, my twitter, comments on my posts or contacts me! That's what makes me make time for blogging and reviewing- I hope you stick with me for the next year!
Thank you!
Much Love!
