Blogoversary Bonanza!

My blogoversary was on April 1 and to celebrate I'll be hosting 4 fantastic weeks of giveaways! Come back each Saturday and you can see what goodies you could win. There will be one UK only giveaway and one International giveaway running at any one time, so that's potentially 2 chances to win. Woo!

I can't believe it's been a year already since I started blogging. I've really stepped it up a notch since the beginning of 2014 though and I've made so many friends and had so much fun.

And, I got a puppy. Belle is so cute. But she can be a bit of a horror when I'm trying to sleep.

This month I'm taking part in the Paper vs Pixels Challenge, head on over to the page and give it a go yourself. I'm having a lot of fun already!

The giveaways both have questions, but why not answer them here too?
  1. Do you believe in ghosts?
  2. What is your favourite season?
  3. In what country are you based?

The Prizes

This week, lucky UK readers could win a signed copy of Maureen Johnson's The Name of the Star. This book means that I now pick up anything with ghosts in. ANYTHING. If you're an international reader, you could win a copy of Alana Albertson's The Snow Queen, which is a delightful read for anyone who loves dancing and The Nutcracker. I really enjoyed this one and the author was kind enough to send me two copies (one of which is doing the rounds with my bookish friends).




  1. Congratulations on your first blogoversary, Cora! May there be many more to come.

    Belle is absolutely adorable!

    1. I do believe in ghosts, but I don't have the time currently to explain why.
    2. Autumn is definitely my favourite season! The weather of a typical Autumn is my favourite, and it's a very pretty time of year.
    3. Australia.

  2. Congrads!
    A year seems like an unreachable goal! I hope you have many many more blogoversarys!
    I’m going to have to come steal belle! She’s adorable! My puppy moo is an absolute terror he eats everything.

    1. I don’t particularly believe in ghosts but I believe in folklore in general
    2. Winter is my favourite season, I love the cold and sweaters and tea. My birthday is also August 1st which is winter here in Australia
    3. As above I’m from Australia

  3. Congrats on a year anniversary, Cora. And thank you for hosting the giveaways. I am in the UK x
