Look Around! New Blog design, Giveaway and NEW features!

Heyo! Member that post I wrote a few days ago about starting a new book blog? Well I think my brain must have taken flight and landed on loopy land for that thought to even be processed in my head.. so ofcourse now I'm not starting a new blog! I came to that decision after a few of you helped me make it and offered great advice! THANK YOU! 

So now this is sort of a re-launch whatyamacallit? if you want? Anywho! like my new design? It's all bright, and flowery and makes me smile so darn bad my jaw hurts! Ofcourse I didn't design it The amazing peeps over at The Cutest Blog on the Block did who offer free designs for bloggers.. Aren't they just fab?

I have made like a little pledge to myself to try and a be a good blogger.. and that is.. 

  • To accept books I want to read for review! (In the past I've accepted books cause I felt bad saying no but it just makes me feel worse if I can't get into them!)
  • To share with you books I am interested in and have read or am going to! (In such things things as cover reveals, book blasts/blitz and other promotional features) 
  • To be 100% honest as I can be! 
  • To get involved in the book blogging community.. I've always been a bit scared in the past but I think I AM SO GONNA ROCK THIS OUT NOW and be social ;) 
So there you go my little me pledge! 

I am also going to start up a few weekly, fortnightly features to get a sort of routine going so everyone know what to look for! (Really this is for me to try and be more organised) 

I'm thinking of starting a New Adult, Erotica or Romance feature introducing "new" new adult or romance authors every week (YES this in inspired by my lovely sisters feature Introducing YA authors every Friday which I am sorta nicking.. but it's all good cause she doesn't read new adult or Erotica) ;) 

If any authors would like to get involved in that please email 

I am also starting up my Behind that book blog feature.. but am trying to think of a totes new cool name.. Being Social? Bloggysocial? Can you think of anything? 

(It's basically a Q&A with a book blogger. I email you the questions and publish it on my blog as a way for readers to get to know the blogger YOU behind the blog Interested? email me at and let me know as this is new again I'm looking for book bloggers) 

In August it's my 21st Birthday :o and I have a few small (BIG) things for that planned which I hope you like, I am currently trying to build my confidence to email a few peeps.. I think I'm going to be sick am so nervous! :( 

Anywho! As a little thank you I have included a giveaway or a few swag bits and bobs open international and to the world.. unless you're an alien! I ain't posting that far! (A few are signed)
