900 Follower Giveaway and Q&A

I can hardly believe I’m even typing this, but a couple of days ago my follower count somehow hit 900. Yep, I didn’t think that was a real number either. Anyway after checking WordPress for some sort of meltdown and waiting for a notification that would pop up on my phone saying: ‘HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YEAH OKAY GURL 900 FOLLOWERS’ I eventually started to think it might be true.

Like, dude. I’m more surprised than a Weasley facing down a howler in the Great Hall.

I have no idea how this has even happened, or how quite so many of you lovely little sparkly puddings have ended up reading my ramblings in the first place, but please don’t go anywhere because it is unbelievably awesome and I truly appreciate your time and your support.



To celebrate this slightly ridiculous achievement and how utterly brilliant you all are, I’m running a giveaway! YAY! I hope I’ve set up Rafflecopter properly though, because if not nobody will be getting anything. If it does work, the lucky winner will get:

Copies of The Haunting by Alex Bell and The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness, as well some YALC goodies including bookmarks, badges a Girl of Ink and Stars (Kiran Millwood Hargrave) tote bag and an A3 The Square Root of Summer (Harriet Reuter Hapgood) poster!

I’m also chucking in an A6 Rhysand and Feyre (from A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas) stationary card illustrated by the amazing Charlie Bowater (see below).


Check out more of Charlie’s amazing digital artwork here.

I’m going to be shipping the goodies myself and will post them internationally.

Rules (the boring bit that you definitely need to read)

  1. The giveaway will be open as soon as this post goes live (03/10/16) until Sunday 9th October.
  2. There will only be one winner *booming game show voice*.
  3. If you’re selected you have 24 hours to respond or I’ll have to select someone else. Don’t be that person. 😦
  4. You must be 18 years old or have parental permission to take part.
  5. I’m not responsible for any lost or damaged items, but I will let you know as soon as they’ve been shipped.
  6. I’ll be contacting the winners via email, so make sure you keep an eye out from the 9th of October!

I’m also opening myself up to a Q&A, because I am A) unoriginal and this is what everyone else seems to do, and B) Why the hell not?

If you have a burning question you’d like to ask me (Harry Potter questions are most welcome) then pop them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer all of them in a follow-up post.

Finally, thank you all so, so much for your support. Whether you’ve only just arrived at my blog, or if you’ve been following me since I started six months ago, you are wonderful.
