Welcome to Christmas in July! (with giveaway)



Hello! I know what you're thinking, I've gone mad, but the thing is I love Christmas - the food, the pressies, the traditions - but there's just never enough time to read all of the gorgeous Christmas books! And so instead of neglecting them for another year, I decided to bring Christmas in July to Reviewed the Book.

Over the next four weeks I will be posting lots of festive book reviews and thanks to over 60 of you lovely readers, authors and bloggers who helped out, daily Christmas Q&As too. I hope you may also be tempted to pick up a Christmas book or two this month and find your festive spirit... even in the middle of some beautiful sunshine (fingers crossed), or this heatwave we're predicted...!






Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a few little presents! So I've wrapped a few small bookish goodies to giveaway to you all. Like all good presents, the contents are a surprise but I will say they're all perfect items for booklovers and I want them all!



There'll be ten different winners picked, each winning one of my stocking-filler prizes and the giveaway is open worldwide! Good luck :)
