One Year Blogoversary Giveaway!!

Hey! :D 

Today is officially my one year blogoversary. In celebration I have decided to have my first giveaway. Yay! :)

So basically this giveaway is open to anyone that the book depository ships to for free, I am pretty sure it's just about everywhere, but just to be sure you can check here.

I will be giving away one of the books below to one lucky winner. The links lead to the respective goodreads pages. I just picked a bunch of my favourites and a couple that I am looking forward to reading, so if you aren't interested in any of my suggested books you can pick any book you like under $20 from the book depository. Good luck!

EDIT: I just thought maybe I should mention the winner will be drawn randomly. The birthday experiences have nothing do to with my picking of the winner. Just in case it seemed that way :) Good luck! 


  1. Congratulations on your blogoversary Jammie! The time flies doesn't it? ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway. My birthday this year was pretty awesome. I had a 'create your own superhero' party and everyone had to come dressed up. It was so much fun and we set up a photobooth corner with a backdrop so we have heaps of photos to remember it by :)

    1. It really does. It's scary how fast it goes by.

      That's really cool! Dress up parties are the best :D

  2. Congratulations!

    I think my birthday this year has topped them for a while. I have been having a rough go at things after splitting up with my boyfriend of 7 years. And for my birthday this year my best friend took me out for a night of drinking the day before my birthday. Then on my actual birthday she took me to Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota that I have been wanting to go to since I moved to the area (the ex boyfriend wouldn't take me) and then she took me to lunch at my favorite restaurant. Followed by swimming at reading by the pool and then she fixed me a birthday dinner! It was amazing, and thankfully I have a great best friend to share it all with.

    1. That's awesome :D Best friends rock!

  3. Happy Blogoversary! I just had my birthday a few days ago, and it was pretty amazing! I don't really celebrate birthdays, I'm always keeping it as a secret :D But this year I got a big surprise.. a huge pack of books! I broke in tears immediately! best birthday ever!

    1. Thanks.

      That is an awesome birthday present. I am so jealous :D I bet they'll keep you busy for a while.

  4. Happy Blogoversary!
    My favorite bday experience was my 6th bday. Even though my parents didn't have much money my mom managed to turn the backyard into a carnival. There were different stations of games with prizes and lots of yummy food. At one point my mom dressed up as a clown (her clown name was Cookie, lol) and did a comedic performance. My friends and I had a blast :)

      And that sounds like it was an awesome birthday :D

  5. My favourite birthday was the one I had when I turned 7. My mom invited all my friends and we had it at the beach. I still remember running around catching ladybugs and playing in the sand.
