Second Blogoversary, Changes, and Giveaway!

Guys guys guys!!!!

Guess what?! I have two amazingly fantabulous things to tell you guys! 
But before I tell you about those things I would like to apologize. This past year has been one heck of a year, not only was it eventful, but it was fast. I had so much to do in the real world that was unable to focus on the blog, reviews, and posts. For that I am sorry. various times this year I have apologized, because each time I would think, that I would get more time. Sadly it wasn't true. Senior year has been consumed, by keeping up grades, projects, college apps, senior activities, and so much stress...this meaning I needed to slow down on the blog. But because of my lack of time to post, I would like to surprise you all really quickly!


So as you know I have been having trouble posting, and well I thought I needed some help. Two years ago, Zareen from Reach for the Stars and the Books  and I started our blogs on the same day. We both love to read, and have been best friends since the 8th grade. Due to our horrible technology skills and lack of knowledge on blogger, the two of us started out blogs. Only to realize later that more than one person can write on the same blog. We both were hoping to start out blogs together, but because of those issues we couldn't. As time went on, we both continued our separate blogs, but collaborated on practically everything. We both ran giveaways and events together, and posted according to each other's schedules.

With senior year coming to an end for us, and both of us splitting apart for college *boo :(* we have decided to....

MERGE OUR BLOGS!!!!

This means Zareen will be now part of The Reading Fish, and will be my coblogger! :D WOOOOO *throws confetti*


That's Zareen ^




A Message from Zareen: Hi guys! Some of you may know me as Zareen aka Taco from my individual book blog, Reach for the Stars...and the Books! I'm so excited to be joining Ishita here at The Reading Fish. Leaving my blog behind is bittersweet, but along with many other things in my life, I know that this change will be for the better. I can't wait to start reading, posting, and hearing what you all have to say about the inner workings of our fangirl minds. Stay tuned!

We are so excited! By merging our blogs we will both stay connected, as well as post a lot more often. It's a win-win situation for everyone! And here comes the second news...

In celebration for our 2 year blogoversary (I still can't believe it!) we have gotten a new blog desgin! :D Katie from Sophistikatied Reviews and KD Designs made this fabulous new design for Zareen and I. It was pretty awesome being the customer, and I loved working with Katie. She was really quick, affordable, and her designs are not like anyone out there. She makes sure you are satisfied, and is will to start over if you aren't. Though she had a short time to work she did everything Zareen and I wanted and plus some. I have always loved her designs and I am just so excited for this new one! So if you need a design, you must go to Katie, you will not be disappointed! 
This is how I feel about the design <3 

And Lastly! For all of you guys, thank you so much for supporting me for these past few years. I love you all <3 As a thank you I will giving away 2 books for up to $20 in Amazon. All you have to do is enter in the Rafflecopter below! 






Thank you so much everyone, both of us are so excited for the upcoming new year :)

  8. Aww, it's so neat that you both are going to collaborate together on The Reading Fish! I can totally understand about being swamped this year- I'm only a fish, yet I was totally busy this year. Being a senior and blogging is no easy feat, and I'm thrilled that you're sticking with blogging. And with such a gorgeous new design!!

    Honestly, I'd love to see ANYTHING you ladies have to offer. You're both wonderful kids with awesome personalities and creative ideas, so I know you guys are going to take over the blogosphere. ;)

    Congrats!!! <3 <3
