My Second Blogiversary!



I really cannot believe my blog has made it to two years! I don't think I've ever stuck anything out so long but over the last couple of years, book blogging has become such a massive part of my life - I couldn't imagine being without my little blog. I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to visit my blog and so I just want to thank you guys for sticking with me over these couple of years. Most of you know how much the past two years personally for me have been difficult and horrible but knowing that I had the comfort of a book to read, and readers to chat to, have made things much more bearable at the end of every day. I've got four blog posts coming up over the next month of my blogiversary celebrations, which will discuss more some of the perks of book blogging, the great books and authors I've been introduced to over the past two years and my ways for keeping book blogging a fun hobby, not a chore. But for once, today I'm not going to ramble, I'll just get onto the fun stuff - the giveaways :D

You all know how good I am at letting these milestones pass by quietly (ok, not at all) and so thanks to the generosity of authors and booklovers, and a few from me too, I have over 35 blogiversary giveaways to share. I'll post them all daily from today (first one below) to October 8 (where I'll have an extra special giveaway to celebrate my actual birthday too) and I've tried to make as many as possible open worldwide. Good luck!

  29. My mind went blank. All the authors I love to read, and I couldn't think of anything. I read mainly on my kindle now, can make the text whatever size is comfortable. Easier than wearing reading glasses. Just grabbed one of the freebies you suggested on facebook thank you. I think I would choose The Silkworm. Thank you for running such a great competition, and good luck for your blog in the years to come.
