Happy Indulgence reached a massive milestone this week and last – 1,600 Twitter followers and 1,000 Bloglovin followers! I am totally excited and THANK YOU so much. I really appreciate all of you guys and all of my recent giveaways are to say thank you. I also finished my GR challenge and have read 120 books this year, yay!
I’ve installed a new commenting system, Intense Debate on the site after reports that people were having trouble commenting. So far, it seems to be working well and I love how fast it is. Please let me know if you guys experience any problems with it!
Last week I saw Mockingjay Part 1 in Gold Class and it was freaking emotional and epic! It really did pull at my heart strings and I felt teary at times, knowing all the action will be in Part 2 I was definitely satisfied with it.
Yesterday I went to Supanova to hear Jack Gleeson’s panel (Joffrey from Game of Thrones).
Also got my books signed by Juliet Marillier and Sean Williams at Supanova 🙂
Next month’s Read Play Blog topic is: “What is on your gaming wishlist? Recommend something to gift to a friend!“? I hope you can participate on the 16th or any time during the month!
