A Glimpse of the Past, A Glimpse of the Future - January 2013

This is going to be a monthly post that I'll put at the end of the month (or every beginning of the next month) going over the posts of that month, the blog tours, giveaways, winners, challenge updates and other quirky things. I'll also give a little insight into what's coming up next month, certain reviews, tours, giveaways.. You get the picture. I'll also include some fun (or at least 'fun-to-me') stats about my blog.

I'm not sure how many followers I had at the start of this month but I do know it was nowhere near this many! Thank you all so much! I think my facebook likes have almost tripled and everything else has pretty much doubled! This is huge to me and you don't just how grateful I am to all of you.
