Happy New Year & A Special 4th Blogoversary Giveaway


I can't believe it is 2014 already! The last year just seems to have flown by and I don't know what happened to it!

I do know that when I started my blog on the 1st of January 2010 I never expected to last a year so to find I'm still going strong FOUR years later is quite a surprise. I love blogging though, I've made so many wonderful friends, discovered fantastic books that I'd probably never have found otherwise and been lucky enough to have some amazing experiences that would never have happened if I'd not started my blog.

I'm grateful to every single person who has visited this blog - whether you're a commenter or a lurker (like I tend to be!) I appreciate every visit and every single comment or like here and on Amazon or Goodreads. I want to thank the wonderful authors who have written the books I love to read and the fantastic publicists who work so hard at sharing their love of books with us.


It only seems right to celebrate the occasion with a giveaway so here we go . . .

Giveaway Details:

There will be one winner and they can choose ONE of the following prizes:
Giveaway terms & conditions:
  • Giveaway is international (anyone can win the £10 Amazon voucher but the Book Depository option is only available to the countries detailed at the link above)

  • The winner will be chosen at random from all entries received
  • The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my email confirming which prize they would like or a new winner will be selected.

Sarah G said...

I've been hearing great things about both of those books but I've not read either of them. I'm going to have to buy them soon though so I can see what all the fuss is about LOL

Ashfa said...

Happy Blogoversary! I'd pick The Bone Season if I won!

Sarah G said...

Hi Rachel, I loved the first few Agatha Raisin books but it's been years since I read any from that series. I'm going to have to see if I can find my copies and re-read them :o)

Sarah G said...

I have to confess I've not read anything by Kazuo Ishiguro. Which of his books would you recommend starting with?

Sarah G said...

Thanks Evie and Happy New Year to you too :o)

Sarah G said...

Thanks Francis, I never expected I'd be blogging this long LOL. I loved The Knife of Never Letting Go but haven't read The Ask and the Answer yet so that is on my list too. I still need to read Legend too!

Sarah G said...

The Bone Season is a great choice - I really enjoyed that one :o)

Sushma P said...

My favourite book by Kazuo Ishiguro is The Remains of the Day.
