My Big Blog Birthday Bonanza Bookish Giveaway @Jo_Furniss #Giveaway #BookBloggers #BookBlog #Birthday

8 pm | 20 may | 408 byers lane

Sooooo, I am quite excited because next Sunday is my blog’s second birthday!

I can’t believe it has been two years since I set up this blog and I am amazed at how far I have come in that time. The blog has changed substantially from what I initially set it up to be to what it is today, but I couldn’t be happier with where I am and the wonderful journey I’ve had along the way. I’ve read amazing books, had great experiences and made so many fantastic new friends – it has surpassed all the expectations I had when I pressed ‘Publish’ on that very first post two years ago.

Of course, all of that is thanks to you, my amazing followers. I truly appreciate the time that anyone takes to read, comment on and share my posts and it makes me so happy when people say they like my posts, or have bought a book on my recommendation, or take the trouble to engage with what I am saying. So, as a thank you, I have put together a fabulous bookish giveaway to celebrate this milestone.

The prize bundle contains eight mystery paperbacks, which are a mixture of new books from the past twelve months and a couple of my favourite books of all time, in a range of genres. One of them is a book which has been kindly donated by the author of one of my top ten books of 2018, the wonderful Jo Furniss, so a huge thank you to Jo for her generosity and support of the blog. It also includes a pile of other goodies that will delight the heart of any book lover and, I hope, enhance their pleasure in reading the books they receive. I’d love to receive this prize if I weren’t the one giving it away!

All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on this post over the next seven days telling me what you like about my blog or letting me know which posts or categories you have particularly enjoyed over the past two years, or making a suggestion for a new feature you would like to see in the future. Make it as unique, funny or imaginative as you can. One comment will be chosen as the most interesting by a panel of my five daughters (ranging in age from 11 to 16), and the author of that comment will win the prize, so be creative.

As I say, the competition is open for 7 days and the winner will be announced in a post on the blog on Sunday 20 January 2019. It is open to UK entries only I am afraid, due to the cost of postage of the prize. The decision of the girls will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. If the winner does not claim the prize within 7 days of it being announced, a second winner will be chosen to receive the prize instead.

Good luck and thank you for all your support over the past two years, and here’s to the next two.

  1. Hello Julie! How could I resist such a tantalising competition? As you know, I love your blog, and it’s inspired me to copy you, and start my own. I mean, I only have 20 followers, but everyone has to start somewhere and I enjoy it so much. What I would love to see actually, is one or more of your daughters start to do a feature post on a book they have loved, and why. It’s always great to see a new perspective and fab to encourage everyone to express their opinions. Much love to you, congratulations on your two-year milestone, and best of luck for everything you have in store for this year xx Jill xx

  4. Happy birthday to your wonderful blog. What do I like? – everything. Your passion in everything you write about shines through and you do need to finish that novel so we can all read it and feature it on our book reviews 😁💜

    The reviews and blogs are all so wonderful to pick one would be like asking to pick your favourite child (or daughter! 😉)

    Happy Blogiversary. Boring perhaps, but I enjoy book reviews. Of course like others have said that does mean my own TBR is more than a little uncontrolable!

  8. Happy blogiversary Julie! I’m not in the UK either but I still want to say I’m one of those readers who still reads blogs mostly for the reviews so I’m always interested in your thoughts. Not that I really need more books but it’s so nice to read an opinion about a book I read or one that has caught my eye and I appreciate an honest and clear opnion such as yours. Keep up the good work and let’s drink to another year of blogging!
