1095 Days of Blogging! +Giveaway!

       That's right everybody, today marks the 1095th day of blogging on Reviews of YA Books. In other words, it's my 3 year blogoversary! I can't believe it's already been three years, not in the totally cliche way either, but the time has flown by fast.
       I didn't make a post for last years blogoversary, but for my 1 year, I posted stats and stuff. Mostly for myself, because I like looking back on how far I've come, so I'm going to do it again.

       Now for the part that I've been planning since August 2015, the giveaway!
       Wendi Wilson was kind enough to offer her 2 books Shadowed Strength and Shadowed Instincts to giveaway for this very occasion. I had the pleasure of reading Shadowed Strength and it is a great paranormal novel, so I very big thanks to Wendi for making this possible

Synopsis of Shadowed Strength

At 16, Melanie Johnson is a typical teenage girl. She has a BFF she adores, a mad crush on her good friend Jeremy, and an evil Barbie doll that destroys her self-esteem on a regular basis. One fateful night, after being humiliated at a party, Melanie is attacked and nearly raped as she walks home. A mysterious dog appears out of nowhere, just in the nick of time, saves her and then disappears just as quickly. No one saw him but her. And the man who tried to rape her. 
In the wake of the attack, Melanie tries to pull her life back together with the help of her friends. Just as things start to go her way, she starts to receive creepy notes from her attacker, promising to finish what he started. And to make things more complicated, Jeremy has a dark secret that Melanie's not sure she can accept. 
Can Melanie and Jeremy reveal the identity of her stalker before he attacks again? Will Jeremy's secret drive a wedge between them? And will the mysterious dog save her in the end, like he did in the beginning?
