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. 



Image result for november criminals bookQ6) Book you hate?
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...





Q7) Which author do you want to meet and why?

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. 






Invisible GhostsQ9) Next on your TBR?
