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, it’s been a while since I posted a blogoversary giveaway and for that I am sorry 🙁
I went away with my family for a week and wasn’t organised enough to schedule the posts for while I was away.
Now I’m back and am FINALLY caught up on everything so here I am with not ONE but TWO giveaways!

#1 Signed copy of The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay (Open INT)

#2 Four book cookies made by the AMAZINGLY talented Stephanie from Sweets by Steph (US only)

TSot Cookies

I don’t know if you all know the story of how I came about the amazing book that is The Sea of Tranquility so humour me, and I’ll tell you!

Katja contacted me in about July last year asking if I read indie authors and if I’d be interested in reading her debut book once it was ready. Since I was a new blogger and beside myself with excitement that someone had contacted me with a review request I JUMPED at the chance! It turned out to be one on the BEST decisions I’ve EVER made! I am proud to have been one of the very first readers of The Sea of Tranquility back when it was self-published in September 2012 and so proud of Katja and how her amazing book has been received. Just 2 short months later The Sea of Tranquility was published in e-book format by Atria and suddenly everyone was reading it, and that’s when I saw my name in the acknowledgements and cried 🙂 I am so blessed to now be able to call Katja a friend.

Ends 28th June. TWO winners. Signed book open internationally. Cookies open US only.

    I LOVED The Sea of Tranquility! Such an amazing book! Loved the characters and the plot!
    Thank you for giving away a signed copy!
    Happy Blogoversary!

  2. Kay Miles

    I will totally forgive you for only having the cookie giveaway open in the US should I be lucky enough to win the signed paperback!!!
    As for your questions, of course I’ve read it! It’s only my most favourite book in the world!! Favourite quotes? Oh so many 🙂 “Black shit” and all that goes with those two words, the final two words of the book that can literally make me cry right now when I think of them, and “she’s family” and “I’m sorry” by Drew, as I’m a huge Drew fan, and those simple words set in heartbreakingly beautiful scenes made me both cry and smile 🙂

  3. Lea

    Yes, I`ve read it. It is one of my favourite books 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway!! *fingers crossed*

  4. Faith D.

    Read this one 🙂 Saying I love it doesn’t even cover what I feel for this book. Haha. This is one of the funniest quotes I like from the book:

    I’m bleeding out in the middle of my garage. Ten seconds ago, my worst fear was that I would pass out in front of her. That’s not my worst fear anymore. It does it again and I’m in the midst of an undeniable hard-on. Not I try to think about the blood, but she’s right in front of me, offering to help me up and it’s far too late for that. She glances down. Of course she glances down.

    “You’re kidding me, right?”

  5. Kristia

    It is my favourite read of 2012, well actually I can say it`s one of my favourite reads of ALL TIME. I ADORE this book <3
    "I need to know that there's a way for people like us to end up okay. I need to know that there even is such a thing as okay, maybe even good, and it's out there and we just haven't found it yet. There's got to be a happier ending than this, here. There's got to be a better story. Because we deserve one. " <——- I just love this quote <3

  14. bookconnectloves

    yes I’ve read it and love it! this is my fave :))
    “Maybe nobody knows how. Sometimes it’s easier to pretend nothing is wrong than to face the fact that everything is wrong, but you’re powerless to do anything about it.”
    ― Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility

  17. Nuzaifa @ Say It with Books

    My fave quote is –
    “I know at that moment what he’s given me and it’s not a chair. It’s an invitation, a welcome, the knowledge that I am accepted here. He hasn’t given me a place to sit. He’s given me a place to belong.”
    I loved TSoT-it’s one of the most real and refreshing books I’ve read! 🙂
    Happy Blogversary guys! 😀
