Happy Birthday To Me + Giveaway!

Posted April 28, 2016 by Nori in Giveaway / 47 Comments

So…Spoiler Alert. If you didn’t read the title of this blog post, well, it’s my birthday!

I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to include in this post, and after a lot of deliberations, I decided to make it short and sweet.

I’m going to list some birthday wishes. I believe that it’s okay to say your wish out loud, just like it’s okay for dogs to eat first!

(Isn’t that dog so cute???? Sorry…I’m getting distracted)

My Birthday Wishes 

(aka some wishes for the next year or so)

  1. I want Bookitcon: Chapter Two to be bigger and better than the original Bookitcon!
  2. I want everyone to be excited at the Bookitcon: Chapter Two author list that will be revealed today!
  3. I want to read lots of amazing books and fall in love with them!
  4. I want to find the time to schedule more blog posts!
  5. I want to make some new book friends (both online and IRL)
  6. I want to have a blast at BlogBoundCon! (Are you going? You should! Details = HERE)
  7. I want to become a proper bookstagrammer that takes pretty book pics!
  8. I want everyone to have fun at #RQWN tomorrow night!
  9. I want to meet tons of blogger/author/publisher people at BEA this year!
  10. I want to figure out some way to share more cute pictures of my dog on my blog. (Yes, I’m being serious).

A Note

Now, I’m sure that some of you are here just because you saw the word giveaway. I am sure that some people skipped my list and are simply scrolling down here to enter the giveaway. That’s okay. I understand. But, I would suggest you look at the list. You see, there are two numbers in the list that also appear in my blog’s name. And, if you read them carefully, well, I’m certainly hoping you’ll be excited. I know I am!

Onto the Giveaway!

    Happy birthday fellow Taurus!!! I hope you have a great day and that your wishes for the year come true! I share many of your wishes… but I think the most important to me right now is to make more book friends (online & IRL). Also I’m really hoping I can swing BookitCon!

    I should be sleeping right now, but I couldn’t not leave you a comment to tell you again how much you are appreciated! You have to be one of the kindest person I know, both in real life and online. You’re heart is so honest it’s crazy!
    I truly mean it when I say that if someone deserves everything they want, it’s you<3
    I wish for all of your dreams for this year to come true and I wish you an amazing birthday! Eat a piece of cake for me, alright?;)

    NORI HAPPY BIRTHDAY! <3 omg also #RQWN??? really? oh how I have missed this chat, I cannot wait!

    I love the list – unfortunately being on a whole other continent means I can never attend Cons, but I shall be there in spirit?? I hope all your wishes come true!

  4. HAAAAAAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! How awesome are you for doing a giveaway when you should be the one getting all the things!
    Your list was awesome, so many things that I would like to do and accomplish as well. Cons are such a glorious thing in my mind, but attending hasn’t really been an option so far. I hope all your wishes come true and here’s to another great year in your life! P.S. Definitely wouldn’t ever mind pictures of your dog 😀

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you’ll get to fulfill your wishes soon! I also want to find time to schedule more blog posts, I find it much more comforting to know I have some scheduled. By the way, you don’t need a reason to add pictures of your dog. Dogs don’t need a reason. There should always be pictures of dogs!

  6. Happy Birthday! Hope you have an awesome day and in the next year all your wishes come true!
    I’m definitely looking forward to seeing pictures of your dog 😉

  7. Happy Birthdayyyyyy! And omg there’s RQWN tomorrow night?!!! That’s MY birthday!

    I think you can totally do your list. Especially the making new book friends 🙂 I wish I could go to BookitCon or BEA this year, but alas I cannot 🙁 Maybe next year! I’ll be at ALA though! So it’s something 🙂

    Have a glorious and splendiforous (I make up words) birthday!

    Happy happy birthday! My birthday is also coming up soon and I can’t wait! One thing that I wish for is that I will be able to attend BEA or ALA in the upcoming years!

  9. Happy birthday! I love your birthday wishes, and I think that they are a great way to kick of a new year! 🙂
    Honestly, I wish that I could read more books (lots of books all the time, everyday) without getting behind on everything else that I need to accomplish! Is there a way that I can make reading a career? ;-D

    Thanks for the chance to win, and happy birthday!

  10. Happy happy birthday Nori!!! I hope you have a blast and it’s an amazing birthday! One wish I have that I can go to a bookish convention and/or meet some authors in rl. 😀

    I wish that I am able to go to Myrtle Beach with my daughter when they go to this year. I would love to see my granddaughter see the beach for the first time. They have invited me but I have to see how work is at the time.

  12. Happy birthday! Hope your day is amazing! I’m so excited for RQWN! I’ve hardly been on twitter because I’ve been busy with finals and school, but I’m done now! I hope that I can find inspiration and motivation to write some blog posts. I haven’t had any motivation right now. BlogBoundCon sounds so cool! Hope you have a blast!

  13. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Love your list! I hope you manage to manage to make all your wishes come true. So bummed I’ll miss RQWN but maybe next time. My wish is to take better photos.

  14. Happy Birthday! Looks like you’ve got a great bookish year ahead of you! I definitely approve of more dog pictures!

    I’m also hoping to improve my bookstagram game.

    I’m interested in joining in for RQWN. Do you have a time (and timezone) you plan to start?

  15. Happy Birthday! Awesome list! I would love to get better at my bookstagrams!!!

    As to my wish for this upcoming year, I think get a better handle on my TBR list! or event the TBR shelf! Thanks!

    Happy, Happy Birthday! I hope you have the most wonderful birthday. I think you are doing a fabulous job at taking pretty book pics. I would love to go Bookitcon or any kind of book related convention. I think it would be a blast. My wish is just for my family to be happy and less arguing. I would mind having more fun outings with them too. Thank you so much. I hope your list comes true!

  17. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I hope all your wishes come true!! I also hope that you have the best time at BEA – I might actually get to go next year which I’m super excited about.
    My wish is that I can finally go to some sort of book event lol I haven’t been to any D:

    I hope all your birthday wishes come true because you totally deserve it.

    My wish for this year is to get the rough draft done for the book I’m writing with my best friend! I know that at this very moment it’s well… more than a little rough, but my favorite part about writing it is that I get to do it with her. Seriously, co-writing is the coolest thing ever. 🙂

  19. Happiest of birthdays to you, sweetie! I hope this next year is happy, fun, healthy, and everything you wished for. Depending on when #RQWN is, I think I’ll be able to make it! My wish for this year is, to self-host. *crosses fingers and toes*

  20. Happy birthday my dear!! I am terribly sorry that I missed #RQWN. I love #RQWN. But alas, my child decided that she wanted to sleep then, so I read her a story, and then by the time I found my way back, I realized it was almost over. The sadness! ANYWAY, I hope that your birthday has been so, so amazing! And that your whole YEAR will be amazing! I vow to make it to Bookitcon this year! And this BlogBoundCon thing sounds quite interesting too- I love seeing these familiar faces! (But whispers… I am also intimidated!) I can’t wait to see you in like, a week! 😀

  21. Happy, Happy, Birthday to YOU!!! I am so sorry this is belated. I hope your year is full of ALL the things you want to accomplish. I think I might try to go to BlogBound. Also, I can’t wait to see pictures of your dog here.

  22. Anna

    Happy birthday Nori!!! My wish for this year is to find the house to buy.. to find that one house that works!!

  23. Happy belated birthday! I think my wish for this year is to make a difference at my university, to do something big. A friend and I want to start a secret literary/writers society, so that might be my something big, if we can get it off the ground.

  24. Happy belated Bday! 🙂 I hope at least part of your wishes will come true! I have some many wishes right now, mainly just to have enough strength and courage to try new things and deal with many things.

    Happy bday! Oops, I’m late, but beter late than never, huh? So, my wish for this year is to meet Leigh Bardugo, but because of stupid expensive plane tickets I think I won’t *sigh*.

    PS: More photos of your dog? YES PLEASE! xoxo

    Happy Birthday again! My wish for this year is to finish writing my book, and if I can publish it, even better 😀
