Six Month Blogoversary + Giveaway!

I can’t believe it’s been six months since I started blogging. I recently went through a URL and a blog name but it still counts in my heart. Please enjoy this brief award-ceremony style speech.
Thanks to my lovely family for supporting me. Thanks to all my friends for letting me fangirl about books I’ve read and for telling you random things about my blog. And last but not least, thanks to the blogging community: thanks for making me feel welcome and loved!

To celebrate this achievement, I’ve decided to do a giveaway!

- Must be 13 or older to enter (Under 18 with parents permission)
- Open internationally as long as The Book Depository ships to you
- I will double check all entries so no cheating!

Good luck and thanks for being awesome!

    I actually recently had my one year blogoversary but completely forgot about it lol. I should probably organise a giveaway or something too.

    My favourite book from the last 6 months was definitely House of Hades. I don't know if you've read that series, but PERCABETH! Leo x [spoiler]! Nico bombshell! So many good elements to that book :3

    Thanks for the giveaway!
