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)
  • Giveaway closes on the 21st of January at 12:01 GMT and the winner will be contacted by email soon afterwards
  • 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.
