Three Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been three years since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in three years, We have gone through different layouts, different content posts. Quite a bit has changed but I am still here! This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Since my first year, I hoped to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...


Q1) Favourite Book

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't changed. A book still has not beaten how I feel about this book. Let the hunt continue...






Q2) What book do you hope to read in the next 
year?

Q4) Which topic would you most like to write about on the blog within the next year?

I mentioned in the last two that I would like to write about the concept of strong female characters in general and this is something that I would love to do. This needs to happen 


Q5) Favourite Blog Post?

I really do like my Turning 21 post.

I dislike a lot of negative things about books but I can not support a book that has Holocaust jokes and this is the November Criminals by Sam Munson so you can guess why I hate this book...

John Green- I love John Green. I will probably never meet him but I really want to.



Just Don't Mention ItQ8) Current read?

Just Don't Mention It by Estelle Maskame- I am really enjoying it so far.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
