1 Year Blogoversary Giveaway & Teaser Tuesday

 Grab a slice of cake, boogie round the kitchen and celebrate! 
At least that's what I'm doing. My blog is 1 year old today. :D

I would like to thank all of my followers for your continued support. I wouldn't be where I am today without your support and I am truly grateful. 
It doesn't seem like that long since I set up my little blog, clueless as to how it worked but passionate about books. Eager to share my love of books with the world. The blogging community has become like an extended family. Everyone is so friendly and there is always help on offer. Now a year on, my blog is going strong, I have made some good friends, and read loads of great books. I'm still not totally sure how it all works, but I'm getting there. LOL 

So to say thank you for all your support, I am holding a Blogoversary Giveaway.

Up for grabs is a choice of some of my tops read from this year.

- Wild (Illusions) by Aprilynne Pike
- Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
- The Agency: A Spy In The House by Y S Lee
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
- Hereafter by Tara Hudson
- Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
- Divergent by Veronica Roth
- Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler

ONE winner will be able to choose ONE book from the options above.
If I cross 500 followers before the end of the Giveaway I will add a second winner!

Teaser Tuesday

TEAser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!
Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles!

Thanks for the opportunity! I don't have a blog so I tried to link to my Facebook. It tells me to enter a valid link. Can I still enter?
