Blog of a Bookaholic Blogoversary Day 8 - Thank you to publishers and authors - Wrap Up

This is my last blogoversary post, where I shall thank the amazing publishers/publicists  and authors I have had the chance to communicate with. Also, tank you for all your lovely comments on my posts!


In this post, I want to say a HUMONGOUS thank you to all the amazing publishers, publicists and authors I've had the chance to talk to! You have all been amazing and thank you for making my blogging experience so delightful!


Penguin Publishers
I received my first two review copies from Penguin, I still remember how excited I was when I received the package and still to this day, whenever I receive a Penguin package I'm also eager to see what's inside and start reading because they publish amazing books. I'm also extremely grateful to them for sending me books when my blog had just a mere 66 followers. Thank you especially to Candice Wigget and Jean Fryer! :)

Pan Macmillan
My first review copies I received from Pan Macmillan were Dreamless by Josephine Angelini and Fated by Alyson Noel. Pan Macmillan's publicists are extremely friendly and it's always a pleasure talking to them! Thank you especially to Kelly Ansara and Tarryn Talbot! :)

Random House
Random House have sent me 4 wonderful in the last month or so and I can not wait to read them! I'm super grateful that they are sending me books and the publicists are very nice! Thank you especially to Kim Peters and Amanda van Rhyn! :)

Jonathan Ball Publishers 
HarperCollins sent an email to Jonathan Ball and they contacted me to send me some books which was lovely! Thank you to Andrea Marchesi! :)

Readers Warehouse
Readers Warehouse is a bookshop in my province and they were kind enough to send me a copy of Divergent and Insurgent! Thank you!

Luisa Plaja
Luisa Plaja is such a sweet, kind person! I contacted her to review her book, Kiss, Date, Love,Hate and she sent it me! She is one of the kindest authors I have ever had the privilege of speaking too! Thank you, Luisa!

Cora Harrison
The first book I read by Cora Harrison was, I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend. I loved it so much and Cora Harrison definitely became one of my favourite authors. When she sent me her book, Debutantes, to review I was extremely ecstatic. Thank you, Cora! :)

Katherine Erskine
When I contacted Kathryn Erskine to review her book, Mockingbird, she was extremely sweet and we had a nice talk about South Africa and our dogs! :) Thank you! :)

Rachel Harris
When I read and reviewed Rachel's book, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, for the blog tour, I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the gorgeous writing! Rachel and I emailed each other and tweeted a few times and it was one of my first experiences, actually talking to an author and having the author talk back to me! Thank you Rachel, you are 100% made of awesome.  :D

There are a lot of other authors I want to thank, but the list shall be way too long then! 


This is the last post of my blogoversary, there will be a belated blogoversary giveaway coming up shortly so keep your eyes open for that! :D 

Once again, thank you everybody! 


  1. Publishers, publicists and authors are such lovely people! I love blogging and getting free books to actually review is just AMAZING. Seriously, how did that happen?! *happy dance*

    I'm glad that you've had such an amazing year. I am sad that your blogoversary is coming to an end but I'm looking forward to your wrap-up post tomorrow :)

  2. Aw, this is a lovely post, Kyra! Publishers and authors are just so nice, and it makes my day when I get to talk to them. All of the people who email bloggers about review books are so friendly. This sort of community is wonderful to be a part of. I don't really know a lot of the authors on your list, but I do know Luisa Plaja and totally agree! Luisa is definitely the nicest author out there. She has helped hundreds of newbie bloggers create their blogs and I owe so much to her.

    This is a wonderful way to wrap your Blogoversary celebrations up, Kyra. I can't wait for the upcoming Giveaway too! :D x
