*500 Followers Giveaway*

Hey followers and friends

I'm still really overwhelmed by all the love and support I got the last few weeks on Twitter and I can't thank you enough. You're all amazing ♥ ♥ 


I've been blogging for almost 5 months now and I feel so grateful that I got to know so many great book bloggers and other lovely tweeps.

I'm so glad I can call you all my friends now and I really enjoy exchanging thoughts on books and other things. In the last few weeks, I wrote some actual cards and I really enjoyed it. So if some of you would like to receive one, just let me know. Enough of that know, on to the giveaway.

I said, I'd do a giveaway when I reach 500 followers, so here it is. As most of you already know it includes Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.


I absolutely adored this book, there was a lot of crying involved, but the writing is brilliant, the characters are so real and lively. The story is emotional, heart-breaking, touching and so gripping I couldn't put the book down. Here's the link to the whole review: Review Me Before You


I added a few other small things to this giveaway:


  • Good Luck Charm/Stone: Whenever I have a big exam coming up or something else really important I have my good luck stone with me. It helps me to clam down, relax and concentrate. I actually have it in my bag everyday and when I have an exam I put it , into the pocket of my jeans. I hope this one will bring the winner luck as well.
  • Bookmark: This bookmark has already seen many pages and I think it's time to hand it to another reader. I know it's used, but I feel like this it can also see more pages of other genres. I love the sea and I think the photo is beautiful, I hope the winner likes it as well.
  • Hearts Card: I can't remember where I bought this card, but I loved the colours and the idea instantly. I even bought a book now, how to create images with only fingerprints, kids love that. I saved the card to send to someone special and now has come the time :).
  • Cute little notepad: Need to take notes? Use this cute little notepad, it fits in every bag and is really useful, I have one myself. I bought it in France, when I spent six weeks there in summer 2012.
  • Shakespeare Sonnets: I bought this little booklet in Stratford-upon-Avon the home town of Shakespeare. His best sonnets are collected in this booklet, I even used some of them at my final exam at high school. English was my main subject at high school. Hope the winner enjoys them as much as I do.

Good Luck to all of you. Tomorrow's review: Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella.

  2. Congratulations again, lovely Simona! So happy your blog is such a success! :-)
    If I could switch places with a character, it would be probably be (cliché) Hermione Granger. I would absolutely love to live in that magical world, go to Hogwarts and.. what's better than to fall in love with your best friend? + Hermione is strong and confident and smart, and I wouldn't mind if some of that would rub off on my, whilst switching places ;-)
    Congrats again lovely! xx

  4. Hmmm if I could switch places with a character from a book... it would be Angela from Lindsey Kelk's 'I heart' series... would be great to fly off to New York, start writing as a profession and meet some really cool friends and a sexy rock star boyfriend! xx

  5. Hey hey lovely, CONGRATS on reaching 500 followers on twitter and wish you loads of more! I had a glass of red in honour of you reaching 500 the other night! I'm really proud of you and think you're doing an amazing job with your blog. Love your reviews and posts so keep up the great work!
    As for your Q - I really wouldn't like to switch places with any character..but IF I must..then I'd say I'd switch places with Natalie, from White Lies by Emily Harper. I read it recently and she kind of grew on me. See you in twitterville my friend and cheers to next 500! LOVE YOU!
