Ah, Valentines day! For some of us it means flowers, chocolates, jewellery, sexy-times. For others of us it means alcohol & desperate revenge on whatever idiot thought it was a good idea to celebrate a national couples day. Like they even need to be celebrated, the smug jerks!
But Valentines day also means something else. It just happens to fall almost exactly on Cuddlebuggery’s blogoversary. Our second blogoversary marking the passage of time since we first started terrorising the book blogging world. And since Valentines or GALENTINES (for those of us hanging with our besties) should be celebrated with the people you love, come spend it with us. Even those of you who have partners should come spend it with us because, you know who you really love more. That’s right, it’s us.
So why don’t we all share the best times we’ve had blogging. Roll together in the meadows and show each other some love.
So here’s what we’re doing to show our love to you on Valentines Day! You can enter the following giveaway for the series listed below! Enter! Enter, my pretties! Then seduce us with your wily ways!
But first, speaking of love…
We Proposed, She Accepted
We had a nervous, wonderful Valentines day surprise for Meg when we sat her down in a fairytale garden full of statues and flowering trees on a warm summer night and proposed to her. “Will you be our coblogger?” we asked, hearts in our throats as we waited on tenterhooks for her reply.
“Yeah. Whatevski.” was the reply she gave, that filled our hearts with joy.
Steph and I promised ourselves that we wouldn’t have a coblogger unless they were really special, really wonderful person. And Meg was that person who set our heart alight while she kicked at small innocent animals and set the trees on fire with her lighter. And that’s the gospel truth.
So now a few words from the lovely lady herself!
There are all kinds of love you can celebrate on Valentine’s Day (or, really, any day because do we really need a Hallmark-mandated excuse to show affection for each other and if we do isn’t that an incredibly depressing state of affairs?) There’s romantic love, friendly love, the love between me and a Chipotle burrito and an even more special kind of love when two bloggers adopt an internet weirdo.
When Steph and Kat proposed, I had a bit of a moment (and by moment I mean I ran around in circles yelping like an overly excited shih-tzu presented with bacon. It’s not like I cried or anything, it’s just that one of my contacts was messed up, okay?) Cuddlebuggery was the first book blog I stumbled across on my way to discovering this amazing corner of the interwebz and if it weren’t for their general awesomeness, maybe I wouldn’t even know you all (but that’s sad and we’re here to talk about happy things, so group hugs all around).
The papers are signed, blood has been drawn, secret rituals performed and sacrifices made (don’t ask, I can’t tell you). You guys are officially stuck with me and I, for one, am incredibly excited about that. I promise to uphold the highest standards of hilarity, snark and general mischief set forth by my illustrious co-bloggers (*pinches self*) and solemnly swear I am up to no good. Brace yourselves you guys, shit’s about to get weird(er).
Usually, at weddings you give the happy threesome a present out of your dwindling supply of money and bitterly wonder why assholes feel the need to keep getting married. At Cuddlebuggery, we always like to do things a little differently. We have presents for three lucky winners.
Shit you can win today, my loves:
The Lunar Chronicles
Shatter Me series
Under the Never Sky Series
Under the Never Sky
Through the Ever Night
Into the Still Blue
As a big thank you to our amazing readers who have stuck with us for the past two years, we present you with this giveaway. 2013 was a hard year both blogging wise and personally for us, but we’re so happy to have this little corner of the internet, and even happier that we have all of you to share it with. We expect even bigger and better things this year!
Since we have three series to give away, there will be three winners! Whoo-hoo, you lucky winners! The first winner gets to choose which series they’d prefer and the second and third winners get the others. OR, as our newest co-blogger Meg suggested, we could have a Hunger Games style battle. My vote goes with option two, but I’m willing to go with the majority on this one. Make good choices!
Oh! And these babies are all signed!
BTW, we completely realize that it’s no longer Valentines Day. We can totally read a calendar, I swear. But if Hallmark can pull a holiday out of its ass every year, then dammit we get to choose too. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to rewatch Hercules. -Steph
