So, a year ago today I published my first post and what a year it’s been since then!

I have met some amazing people, both in person and virtually, and, of course, read some great books!
I now read more books than I ever used to, I also read different books.
If you’d have told me a year ago that I would be reading paranormal romances I would’ve laughed at you!

To celebrate – and to say thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to visit my blog, read a post, leave a comment, just generally support me – I have enlisted the help of lots of great authors and planned some great giveaways over the course of the month. I hope you’ll stop by and enter.

So, to start us off with giveaway number one, how about a signed copy of

On The Island was a book that I literally could not put down once I started reading, and it stayed with me a long time after I finished it. It was a book I just had to talk about! My mum, my sister, my hairdresser, I even remember telling Katja Millay all about it back in July or August last year! 

I was lucky enough to be on the AToMR/Penguin tour for it in July last year and I remember being giddy with glee when I saw I’d been picked to be included on the tour. As soon as it was out in paperback in the UK I just had to buy it. Then I remembered raving about it to my hairdresser and that her birthday was coming up, so I gave her the copy I’d bought as a present. She read it, she loved it, and the raving about it began all over again!

I have read On The Island maybe 3 or 4 times since last July. It never fails to make me fall in love with Anna and TJ and to cry both tears of desperation and hope. If you haven’t read this book yet YOU NEED TO so now’s a good time to try and win it! If you have already read it then a signed copy is never a bad thing!

To enter to win the signed paperback copy of On The Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves just go to the

Rafflecopter entry form

Ends 30th June. Open internationally. Good luck 🙂

  27. Jody Duffy

    I have read On the Island and it was amazing. I wasn’t sure I would like it because of the age difference and the whole student-teacher thing but this book was so well written I fell in love right along with the characters.

  28. esined615

    I would love to read On the Island, I should have read it a long time ago when I first started hearing about it but I wasn’t sure about their age difference. I changed my mind when I continued to read reviews and people said they felt the same way before reading and still loved it.

  29. Jennifer Crawford

    I haven’t read The Island. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  30. _Sandra_

    No, I haven’t! Booooo, I suck, I know! Heard awesome things about it, so hoping this will be my chance to read it. 🙂 Thanks for a giveaway! 🙂
