YA Midnight Reads Turns 3

Once upon a time, on the 21st of December in 2012, we were told the world was supposed to end. And what did little 13 y/o Melanie do? She made a book blog, why of course. And let’s be honest, it was one of the greatest ideas she’s ever had. And here we are, celebrating YA Midnight Reads’ Third Blogversary. WHOOOT!!!

Mel

The past few years of my life haven’t been the easiest in terms of life outside blogging and all – there’s been a lot of stress and anxiety and just total madness, really – but the one thing that has remained constant is blogging, for which I am so damn grateful for. I used to be an INCREDIBLY shy person, but I feel that through blogging, I have found my voice and am much more comfortable with myself, and find it easier to share my thoughts with others. I’ve definitely grown as a person over these years, and I can’t even begin to imagine how different my life would be if I didn’t decide to begin blogging.

Book blogging has given me a platform to share and talk about my love for books, to meet like-minded people and to some of whichย who have become my close friends. You guys are the best. <33 Thank you so much for being in my life, and I hope that we have even more awesome book adventures together.

To each and every one of you who has made the time to comment or even just read this blog, THANK YOU. While I don’t care much for statistics, reading and responding to your comments or just seeing the views go up on posts boosts my enthusiasm and just totally makes my day. I LOVE YOU ALL!! Hugs for everyone!

And of course, huge thanks to all the publishers and authors and book people who provided me ARCs and bookish products to review on the blog. You guys don’t know how fabulous y’all are.

Celineย 

*clears throat* So.. Hello. Do you guys still remember me? A long time ago (in a galaxy far far away…) I used to regularly blog here. Then I took a short break from the internet which resulted in aย longย break. Buuut… I couldn’t miss the blogversary, of course ๐Ÿ˜€ I still remember when a long time ago, I was a solo blogger at my tiny little blog calledย The Book Shimmy. I think Melanie was the very first friend I made, and I remember being so impressed by her and her super cool blog. It’s still weird to think that I am now a part of that super cool blog! So I’d like to take this moment to thank Mel for everything <3

Book blogging has taught me so much about myself. I remember being so afraid to interact with people when I was still a solo blogger, both in real life and on the internet. But through all these lovely comments from other book lovers and the general love and support in the community, I found that thereย areย actually people who like to enthusiastically shout about books all day. And that it’s totally okay to let your voice and opinions be heard – I remember that in the beginning I was quite nervous when I posted an ‘unpopular opinion’ on a book, and then I found out that A) it’s completely fine to have an unpopular opinion and B) there are somehow always people who agree with you. So here’s a shoutout to all you amazing book lovers – thank you for reading my posts, interacting with me and generally giving me the confidence that I really needed. You guys are awesome. All of you <3

Awesome Things That Happened in 2015

  • While I (this is Mel again) was basically MIA on the blog for the last third of the year, I was rather involved with books outside the blog. For one, I was an Inky Judge for the Inside A Dog‘s annual Inky Awards. It was one of the most rewarding experiences, being able to work with fellow teens from across Australia and just be apart of something special. I even got to interview Gabrielle Tozer, author of The Intern, face to face for ABC Splash, which was definitely awesome. For more details of the Inky Awards, check out this Sortify!

  • Other than that, I also had to opportunity to completely 2 work experience placements at two different publishing houses. IT WAS AMAZING, PEOPLE. The people there are so chill and passionate about books I wish I could just drop out of school and work there permanently already ๐Ÿ˜€
  • We got a new blog design! I feel like this one is significantly better than the previous ones we’ve had – it’s so much cleaner and lovelier in general.
  • I (this is Celine butting in) apparently appeared in a bookish magazine O.O (with thanks to Emily for telling me!)

Magazine II

  • We got quoted on THE FRONT COVER of a book! How awesome is that? *dances and flails* If you haven’t already, you guys should check out The Rephaim series by Paula Weston. Guaranteed fabulousness.

Fun Facts

  • Pretty much 70% of the time when someone lands on YA Midnight Reads from Google, it was from a search related to Rick Riordan’s books or Percabeth. Actually… let’s be honest, it’s mainly just Percabeth. #googleknowsmesowell
  • The other 20% of the time is from a Google search related to OTPs. It’s safe to say that my 16 Signs You’re More Obsessed With Your OTP Than Your Own Life is one of YA Midnight Reads’ most viewed blog posts. OTPS FOR THE WIN.
  • And well, the other 10% was when people actually were searching for the blog. Lol.
  • YA Midnight Reads was originally called The YA Booklover. I still cringe to this day. WHY ON EARTH WOULD I DO SUCH A THING????
  • The first design YA Midnight Reads (or should I say The YA Booklover ._.) had was one that I designed on Microsoft Word and Paint. I no longer have any documentation of this design (thank god) but it was pink and messy AND JUST THE WORST. Basically, no one should allow me to design anything.
  • The first time I showed my face on the internet was in order to enter a signed Percy Jackson poster competition on Instagramย (the comp was hosted by PenguinTeenAustralia). The competition required you to take a creative & original photo of your face and The Blood of Olympus, so it was pretty much the only way I could do it. (And yes, I did end up winning so it was 10000% WORTH IT.) Also, the post is no longer on Instagram as I took it down, but becauseย I’m in such a celebrate-y mood here it is:

  13. Happy third year, girls! I love how we all went into blogging not expecting much, and have really gotten SO MUCH out of this experience. It’s all kinds of wonderful, right?

    For some reason a LOT of people find my blog by searching things about Twilight? I have mentioned that book maybe ONCE on my blog, so I have no idea what’s going on. I also frequently get visitors through search terms about Rowan from Heir of Fire being gay, which is 100% okay with me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    LOL at you reminiscing about the first design! Mine was just a free one on WordPress, but kind of horrible. I shudder when I think of it. YAY for both of us having gorgeous designs by Mitchii. I can literally just stare at them all day *heart eyes*

    I hope your fourth year is your best yet, and here’s to many more years after that! ๐Ÿ˜€ <3

      Eee thanks, Chiara! Right? Blogging has taught each and every one of us A LOT.

      Omg hahaha, that is weird! I mean, it makes sense that mine has a lot to do with Percabeth as I’m always talking about them and have written posts dedicated to them lol.

      Mitchii is the design queen!! THEY’RE ALL SO PRETTY.

  14. Happy blogoversary guys! You picked a great day to start your blog, with it also being my birthday ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t wait to read more of your posts in the future! Thank you for the amazing giveaways too ๐Ÿ˜€

  55. Congratulations, ladies!!! Three years is such an amazing accomplishment! And you have done so much- having your name on the FRONT COVER of a book!?! That is just… well, it’s epic. And two work experiences at publishing houses!? That is fabulous, Mel! And don’t feel too bad about “YA Booklover”- my first blog name was the super embarrassing “Shannon Hearts Books”. What even is that? We can be dorks together ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I umm also might have filled your survey out twice? Shameful confession: I have had this post open in a tab since the DAY you posted it- you know, like over 2 weeks ago? So.. hell, I may have filled it out more times than two, I can’t make any promises.

    Anyway, I am SO happy for you guys, and excited for you to have an amazing fourth year ahead of you!! <3 <3 <3
