One word : freezing! I may have gotten a little excited when I noticed flowers in my garden and thought Spring was around the corner. So what does the universe do? Send Arctic winds and temperatures. 🙄
The Winter Olympics continued to hold my attention and interfered with my reading time like crazy. Thankfully, they’re now finished and things can go back to normal 😄
Books I’ve read this week
I read four books this week. Slightly sad but at least I’m still ahead on my schedule for the next few weeks so I can’t really complain.
Books I’ve bought this week
Again, none. This is becoming a little worrying. 😂

Bookpost that landed on my doorstep this past week
I’ve been a very spoilt and lucky blogger this past week. Look at all these pretties! 😍
(Yes, Janel, three are for blog tours 😜)

Busy week coming up on the blog. I’ll be hosting stops on five (I know. Shut up. 😄) blog tours and I’ll also be sharing my reviews for The Silent Victim by Caroline Mitchell and The Liar’s Girls by Catherine Ryan Howard.
In other news : This past week marked my first blogiversary! My wee blog is one year old! How the heck did that happen?! I have no idea where the time has gone but what a fabulously wild ride it’s been so far!
So many highlights I never expected. I was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Blogger Bash Awards, which blew my mind. I’ve been quoted in books and just recently, on the cover of one as well. I found my name listed among so many brilliant bloggers in acknowledgments. I never realised how awesome that would feel. It’s rather addictive 😄
I must thank Karen for holding my hand, for the support and her endless patience when I continuously ruined her day by asking stupid questions 😉. Also, thank you to Emma, Sarah, Noelle and Anne for taking a chance on a newbie and inviting me on blog tours. There are so many other people I want to thank but I’m too afraid I’ll leave someone out. Massive thanks to all the publishers and authors who entrusted me with their books. To my fellow bloggers, who welcomed me into their community so warmly. I’ve made some amazing new friends. And last but certainly not least, to you, follower and reader of this blog.
So, I thought I’d might run a wee giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me which book you’ve read or bought based on a review I’ve written this past year. It’s as simple as that. This giveaway is open internationally to those who have been following this blog prior to today, as long as the Book Depository ships to your country. An innocent hand will draw two names. The first one will be able to choose books to the value of 20€, the second to the value of 10€. You must of course be willing to share your details with me so the books can be sent off to you. Good luck!
I think that’s it for this week. I think. I have this annoying feeling that I forgot something. Oh well.
Wishing you all a fabulous week and lots of happy reading! xx
