9th Blogiversary + Int Giveaway!

NINE YEARS! Nine! What does that even mean? What kind of time frame is that? Nothing goes for nine years! And yet here we are, nine years later after a lot of everything happening I’m still here posting my nonsense and babbling on. It’s been incredible fun and rewarding. I can think back to the early days where I had some amazing opportunities and no idea what I was doing, to the surprising influx of writers asking for my reviews, then having to stop doing that for a little while because I couldn’t say no and got myself so incredibly stressed. One day I will reopen them and try not to be so pleasing to everybody.

A lot has happened over the years and yet it seems not that long ago either. I have had a lot of fun writing these reviews. I get to share my thoughts and opinions about books I’ve loved (and some I have not) and seeing people read books based on what I have reviewed is always amazing to me.

Today is a day to celebrate though and so per tradition I am giving away goodies to celebrate my blogiversary. This year I am giving away two books to make up for my five month absence. I actually don’t have 5 top of 2021 (more on that in a later post) but I have included those that made the cut as well as some other favourites that I’ve read in the last few years that came close to five stars but didn’t quite make it over the line.

 

A poster that has eight book covers on it. The words Lost in a Good Book's 9th Blogiversary Giveaway are at the top. The word Enter to win one of these titles Open Internationally are at the bottom.

8th Blogiversary Celebrations + Int Giveaway!

Eight years today. Eight years! I will continue to be astounded by the passing of time every single year I celebrate my blogiversary because I am still mentally half back in that third year mark or somewhere even around the fifth where that was a mini milestone and seemed like a huge number. Now I’m at eight years and it’s closer to ten than not and that’s a whole thing in itself.

In eight years I know my writing has improved, I know I have read some amazing books, and shared some wonderful adventures but I also know I have been able to share all my thoughts and rambles and opinions with some great people in the book and blogging community. I would like to thank the wonderful people who have been following me from the very beginning, to those who found me along the way, and those who stuck around during those times when everything went a bit haywire over the years. I am incredibly grateful.

Last year was a year nobody was expecting so to come through the other side with people still wanting to read my reviews and my thoughts means the world.

I am excited about what this next year of blogging will bring, I have a few ideas up my sleeve for features which I am excited for and even though in person book events are on hold, there are always virtual events to look forward to.

Today though is all about celebrating and thanking you guys! I’m feeling super generous this year and I am giving THREE lucky people the chance to win ONE of the books from the selection below. Included is my Top Five reads from 2020 as well as a few other favourites I read this past year.

I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman

7th Blogiversary Celebrations + Int Giveaway!

As slow as 2019 was, the year seems to have come around quickly again as January means I get to celebrate my blogiversary, the day I took the plunge and started my blog all those years ago. There’s no seven year itch in sight as I make this blog into something which has taken up a lot of my life and something I genuinely enjoy doing and sharing with you all. I have found myself thinking about my ten year anniversary already which I really must not do because that is a ridiculous time, not to mention three years away. But while it has been a somewhat chaotic and often rewarding time, the past seven years seems to have gone by in a flash and those early years seem a lifetime ago.

Now that I‘ve become settled in my blogging routine it has become a stable, everyday party of my life that honestly I couldn’t see myself not doing. It’s a great habit to have though, sharing amazing books, sharing my favourite reads and spreading the book love, and maybe even introducing someone to their new favourite read.

Last year was my big reflection year, this year I am only here to be grateful for the amazing opportunities I have had since I started this blog and for the amazing people who read it. Not to mention the books I have had the chance to read, the new authors I’ve discovered which I never would have found if I hadn’t agreed to review their books, and the wonderful community I’ve become a part of.

To celebrate I’m running my giveaway featuring eight of my favourite books. I haven’t actually released my Top 5 of 2019 yet but I’ve added them into my giveaway, I’ll let you guess which ones are which. I’ve also added in a few of my favourites reads which I thoroughly enjoyed and think everyone should read.

The Selection

His Hideous Heart edited by Dahlia Adler

The Secret Commonwealth by Philip Pullman*

The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson*

The Wicked Prince by Holly Black*

*These items are sequels to other books that possibly won’t make any sense if you haven’t read the first one. Keep that in mind when picking your book.
