2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Q1) Favourite Book

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't changed. A book still has not beaten how I feel about this book. Let the hunt continue...









Q2) What book do you hope to read in the next year?

Northern Lights (His Dark Materials, #1)Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman- With the Book of Dust coming out in November this is a book series that I really need to catch up with.










Q3) Most anticipated read? 

FreshersIt Only Happens in the MoviesOK, I have three which are It Only Happens In The Movies by Holly Bourne, Freshers by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivision and the new John Green book that got announced yesterday! I can't believe we are getting a new John Green book, I am so excited!!!!! 






Q4) Which topic would you most like to write about on the blog within the next year?

I mentioned in the last one that I would like to write about the concept of strong female characters in general and this is something that I would love to do. 

Q5) Favourite Blog Post?

My 20 things I have learned in 20 years blog post. 

Q6) Book you hate?

When Everything Feels Like the MoviesOK, hate is a strong word but I really dislike When It Feels Like The Movies because I didn't like the main character but I can see why the story was written. 










Q7) Which author do you want to meet and why?

Holly Black- I just like her books. 

Q8) Current read?

Eliza and Her MonstersEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia- It is really good so far!!!











Q9) Next on your TBR?

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #2)Hollow City by Ransom Riggs- I just have a feeling that it is the right time to continue with this series.











Q10) What is next for your blog?


Onwards and Upwards I hope!!
