I have jumped on board with Cuddlebuggery Book Blogs’s Getting to Know You Giveaway Hop. This hop is about finding new blogs to connect with and will run from November 15th to 29th. To find out about my giveaway, just scroll down a bit, but as this is all about getting to know me (and you…but mainly me), I’ve decided to repost my recent Bookish Year in Review Survey. Possibly I peaked too early with that one. Enjoy!
So last year around this time I jumped in on a fun, bookish survey from Pop Culture Nerd – you can check that out here if you like – and this year I’ve decided to do my own bookish review of the year that has (almost) been! Basically, I’ve come up with some sentences and I aim to finish them with the titles of books that I have read this year. I can’t guarantee that I won’t cheat though and use some titles from last year. Or titles on my TBR pile. I may even include more than one title per sentence. Hold onto your false teeth, thrillseekers, here we go!
So far, I would describe this year as being: [a] Blur
I’m tipping that the next big thing in Reality TV shows will be: Extreme Dentistry
I could have cried when: The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side
I would love to have some respite from: Baby Penguins Everywhere!
The most unexpected thing that happened this year involved: 100 Hungry Monkeys
My non-bookish friends would say I: [have a] SuperEgo
My motto for the remainder of 2014 is going to be: Never Underestimate a Hermit Crab
The thing I am most looking forward to is: [an] 8-Bit Christmas
One of my favourite dreams features: Duck, Death and the Tulip
If you looked under my couch you would see: [a] Slimy Underbelly
If I could no longer keep blogging, I would probably pursue a career in: The Indifference League
Something most people don’t know about me is: I Need a New Butt
Now onto the winning! I am offering one winner a random book from my Goodreads favourites shelf. They can choose either a picture book, middle grade fiction, YA fiction, Adult fiction or non-fiction title and I will sneakily pick one and send it off to the winner via the Book Depository. That means this contest is open internationally, PROVIDED the BD ships to your country for free. More Ts & Cs in the rafflecopter. Now click on the link to enter and good luck!
Now hop along Cassidy (or whatever your name is….nice to meet you, by the way :)) Here’s the list of other participants:
