Happy Blogoversary to Me- and Giveaways!

TWO WHOLE YEARS.  Of blogging, of writing reviews, of being crazy on the internet with you guys. Thank you to everyone who puts up with me!

As a thank you, I'll be running two giveaways!!! One's an international one, in which you tell me what books you want from The Book Depository. The other will be won by two people, both within the UK,  in which you both get to choose one book from my shelves and I'll send you that AND a surprise book. (The amount of books available will have increased by the time this giveaway ends. March = physical book shelf readathon!)

Terms and Conditions
--- Ends on 31 March 2013
---Open to anyone over 13.
---The winners have a week to reply before I email someone else.
---One winner
---Open wherever The Book Depository ships
---Choose books upto £11 worth from TBD (use this link to help you browse)
---I'm not responsible for the shipping.
-UK Only
---Two winners
---Choose one book from my shelves.
---You get that one, plus a random book from my shelves. I'll try and choose one you'll like.
---If you both pick the same book, whoever asked first gets it.
--If you're entering both giveaways, you can use the same info in both. 

Also, we still have the tagline thing going. I have a huge respect for people who do that for a living and huge huge hugs to everyone who's tried to come up with things. Sorry for being so picky. But if you can think of anything good, ie some way of finishing off "life's too short to..."  or some wholly original tagline, bonus points for funny, I'll give you a £5 internet book voucher.

Once again, thank you thank you thank you for being here and reading my blog and good luck and DFTBA!


  1. Happy Blogoversary, sweetheart!!! :) *throws confetti* I don't which book I'd like, and as for a tagline it's pretty hard to come up with something catchy...
    "are unavoidable, but the order varies on idividual. Ripper's Manual 101"

  2. Thanks for the giveaway and happy blogoversay :D

  3. Happy Blogoversary! Two years is a long time! Well done:D
    I've checked out your blog before and won a competition, I like your writing style for your blog as it's chatty and its all well set up:) Your also good at what you do! :)
    Don't know about the books:L
    Hmmm taglines are a hard one, I'll get back to you on that one:)

  4. Happy Blogoversary!! Thank you for 2 such fantastic book giveaways. As a lover of the Young Adult genre, i would love to have the chance of reading books of this kind.
    I shall also be thinking about a 'Tag-line' for you, but it is a tricky one as Death, books and tea are not easy to put together!

    Thank you once again, and i continue to love following your blog. x

  5. *Gives you a celabratory cup of tea* Happy Blogoversary!!

  6. NINA!!!! Lots and lots of congrats on your TWO YEAR blogoversary!!!!! You're awesome and your blog is awesome and I do adore your new blog design... I can't believe you did it yourself!!! Well, I can believe it... 'cos you're an awesome Asian (like me :P) hahahaha!!!! Aaaaaa, I'm so happy for you! *throws confetti and dances like a crazy Asian* As for taglines... I'm completely hopeless o.o Sorry I can't help you on that :( Anyways, happy blogoversary and thank you for the giveaways <3

  7. Happy blogoversary!! :)
    If I won - which is highly unlikely - I would choose Eon, I want to read that book SO BAD!!
    And I love this blog because everything about it makes me feel at ease, the layout, the colours, the posts, everything ^^

  8. Happy Blogoversary!
    I'm not sure which book I would choose yet, but it would be probably a new release. Thank you for the giveaway!

  9. Happy blogoversary, Nina! Wishing you many more years of blogging! I love your blog so much and am so glad that I found it. I know I haven't been commenting as much lately but I really must make the effort to, however busy I am. :)

  10. Happy two years of blogging! We are nearly at one woo hoo

  11. Happy Blogoversary. I think the title of your blog is funny. I really have no idea what a good tagline would be, sorry. Not sure what book i'd choose. There are so many great ones coming out that i really want to read (like Requiem by Lauren Oliver and The Rising by Kelley Armstrong). Thanks.

  12. Happy Blogoversary :D
    I actually like your blog because of your font, rating system & reviews. They are awesome. *Thumbs Up*
    I have so many books on my wishlist so i'm not sure what I would choose, probably two books by Sherrilyn Kenyon, my favorite author.

  13. I come for your reviews amd the giveaways. Always appreciate when they are open to Canadians

  14. Happy blogoversary! Here's to many more years :D Thank you for the giveaways!

  15. Happy Blogoversary Nina! I love your blog and Thank you so much for both the giveaways! You're so generous :)

  16. Happy blogoversary!
    I like the originality of your blog and the design is peaceful not hard on the eyes and that's really great.
    if i won i would perhaps pick one of the uk edition ( paperbac) from one of the book in the mortal instrument that i'm still missing but i'm not 100 sure yet ( it soon my birthday so my wishlist could change^^;;)

    tagline arf not easy but at least i tried ( and since i'm completly sick it was even harder)

    "life's too short to let death have the books and tea. Enjoy them as much as you can with no moderation"

  17. ...oki i'm really sick because i don't see my comment and i didn't see it was waiting to be approved so just to be sure ( before i go back in bed)

    i really love the originaly of your blog , it's really easy on the eyes.

    happy blogoversary, i wish you many more years of reading pleasure.

    If i win i would pick a book from my wishlist, at the moment i'm thinking about a uk paperback edition of one of the book by cassandra clare that i'm still missing but i'm not sure yet because soon it will be my birthday and teh list could change

    as for the tagline, i'm not used to them, my head is so heavy that even harder but i will try ^^.

    Life's too short to let Death have the books and Tea! Enjhoy them without moderation

    or Life's too short, enjoy your books an tea until death

    Life 's too short to not savour your books with a good cup of tea

  18. Thank you for the giveaway and happy blogoversary! I love your blog because it's different from anyone else''s refreshing to read!

    I have no idea what I would pick - there are so many books I would like to read. Probably something by John Green!

  19. Happy blogoversary, two years is a lot! Well done :)

  20. I like miki's taglines. Something like that would be great. Or you could go with "3 thing you oughto enjoy" or something the like. oO I'm just as horrible with taglines as most people :P
    I'm not sure which book I'd pick. Would've to check if it's less than 11 pounds.
    Happy Bloogoversary, before I forget. Nice job becoming two already! =)

  21. Congrats on the blogoversary!!! I'm bad at coming up w/ taglines, but here's my idea... Life's too short to go at it without books! Lol, that's horrible. Sorry, I tried! <3

  22. Congrats on reaching such a milestone.
    I'm terribly bad at taglines so I won't even try to make one for me. As far as choosing a book is concerned, well I'll decide when I win, or else my wish list will be a mile long.

  23. Cheers on the blogoversary! I love the graphics, the reviews, and the giveaways!

    I think I would pick Scarlet or House Rules!


  24. I love little skulls, especially cute ones. ;)
    I was thinking, maybe: 'Teas and Dead Bodies: Enjoy them while they're warm' . LOL

  25. Life's too short to think of Death while enjoying your books and tea!
    Pabkins @ My Shelf Confessions

    If you haven't - you must read Terry Pratchett - he has the ultimate awesome Death character! he loves kittens!

  26. I love seeing your personality in your blog and reviews. That's what makes it special

  27. Gr8 Giveaways!

  28. new idea: Life is to short so cheat death with books and tea.

    Life is too short to forget the cup of Tea wihile reading your books. Don't let Death win!

  29. I love the name of your blog and the design ~ skulls, books, and tea rock! I like the genre of books you review; we have similar tastes in our reading. :D

    Happy Blogoversary! Turning two is huge so celebrate like there's no tomorrow! Hey, maybe your tagline could be "read with tea like there's no tomorrow." I'm cheesy, sorry!

  30. Congrats on 2 years!
    I would probs choose to grab Jamie McGuire's Walking Disaster. Cannot wait for it to be released... there's like two weeks left wew!

  31. Happy blogoversary!!
    I'm a new follower on the blog and it looks smashing to me!! Love the fact that it's simple and not cluttered. As for the book I'd pick, maybe Delirium. Thanks for the INT giveaway.


Thanks for taking time to read this!
Comments are much loved.
