Okay, a heads up – this post has been written very much in advance. As you’re reading this, I am drowning in piles of revision guides and exam papers, because it’s mere days until my GCSEs start.
However, it’s a pretty special day, because not only is today The Bibliomaniac’s blogoversary – but it’s the fifth blogoversary. The Fifth. FIFTH. FIFTH!!
I’ve had this blog for half of a decade. That is insane.
That’s the entirety of my secondary school life… And just under a third of the time I’ve been on Earth… Whoa, okay, all this maths is scary. I’m gonna stop now.
Writing a blogoversary post is hard, because I never know what to do, exactly – last year, I just highlighted the blog posts I was most proud of. Seeing as this year is a big number, I wanted to do something a little more exciting.
In the past two to three years, especially, I’ve worked super hard on making this blog a bit more professional; making it look all snazzy and creating content that’s managed to reach a number of people eleven-year-old-me never would have dreamed of. And, of course, everyone who has read this blog has been so awesome over that time – I’m still overwhelmed with every comment and retweet and nice piece of feedback I get.
So, here’s to all of you super lovely people who have been following, reading, liking and sharing the awful, rambling stuff I put on this blog – here’s a giveaway! You can win two of my favourite books I’ve discovered from reviewing, plus some bookish swag.
Prizes: Paperweight by Meg Haston, Alex as Well by Alyssa Brugman, chapter samplers of various books, bookish badges and an Electric Monkey tote bag
Terms and Conditions:
- Unfortunately, this is a UK only giveaway, because otherwise shipping prices will be quite high.
- This giveaway will close at midnight on the 30th of May.
- I will choose as winner via random.org so it’s fair, and reply in the comments of this post to alert the winner or tweet them.
- I will contact the winner within a week after the closing date, and mail the prize out within the first two weeks of June.
- If the winner hasn’t replied within a week of me alerting them, I will pick another winner, again at random.
- Ideally, if you have a Twitter account, please leave your @handle so if you win the giveaway, I can contact you quicker.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment!

Five Year Blogoversary is huge! Congratulations on it, and kudos to you doing it while being a student and a teenager at the same time. That is a great commitment.
Sadly I admit that I am out of the mailing district (I am in Canada), but good luck to your UK readers! ❤
Congrats, Georgia! Five years is a phenomenal achievement — almost a third of your life, wow! Here’s to many more years. (And good luck with the exams!)
Wow, 5 years is crazy, congrats! Hope I can last that long 😉
I’m currently reading In the Dark, In the Woods and it’s amazing!
Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
5 years? Wow! That is so great 😀 Oh and my most recent read wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be. It was called Becoming Chloe. Not sure if you have heard of it, but I was expecting way more from it than I got. Oh well!
Congrats with your blog! You’re an inspiration to us newbies hehe 😄 Recently I read a midsummer nights dream for coursework…and….i know I’m going to sound super wierd but I LOVE IT 😂💖
Congratulations on five years! I’ve just started following you on twitter and your blog seems pretty darn great! Keep up the good work! 🙂
Happy Five Year Blogoversary
