1 year Blogversary + competition!

Wow. A year has flown by really fast! I'm not about to count the amount of reviews I've written - I'm pretty sure it's over 100 books, possibly nearing 200. The blog has changed it's look several times - a new look will be happening soon! There are a few more bits and pieces to do with the new template.

I've learnt a lot since my early blogging days. I know participate in one meme a week. I'm on friendly terms with several publicists (not that there are unfriendly terms). I've had the pleasure of interviewing several authors, held a few competitions. I have 3 other people reviewing here.

Most of all I'd like to thank you all for continuing to read my reviews, and comment on them. It means a lot when I get a comment or email saying that you've gone out and borrowed/bought a book based on my review. Your input helps make this blog what it is.

The prize: one person can choose two books from the following pile: (pictures to follow later)


 Urban Fantasy





Children's historical

Merlin: The Mark of Nimueh by Various. Womack Children's TV Tie-in

So, what do you have to do?

Simple. Just leave a comment below :) (I have still yet to master online forms).

Who is it open to? Anyone in the world apart from those in the US/Canada. If any of you fall into that category, don't despair because I'm holding this in conjunction with GMR of Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  GMR has an awesome blog, full of several memes, reviews, competitions and other fun things. Make sure you check it out, even if you are entering the competition here.

Competitions ends: 6am GMT Tuesday 1st June. My entry date is slightly different to GMR's to allow for the time difference (which I can't calculate, hence the 6am GMT time). After 6am I will use a random generating website to pick a winner. I will then email the winner to request their postal details and which books they would like.

Get commenting!

For some reason in my head I was pronouncing it "blogo-verse-a-airy", it's that time of day where my brain isn't quite thinking straight.

Thanks everyone!

I think there are many variations to spelling/pronounciation of blogversary. I try and keep it simple.
