100 followers to me is a very big milestone, and to celebrate I wanted to give back to all the lovely people who have read my posts, liked them, commented on them or just had a little poke around. I did think about doing this over on my Twitter, but it seemed more appropriate to do it here. So, I’m giving away a copy of my favourite book The Perks of Being a Wallflower and my favourite read of 2017 Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.

How do I enter you ask? Well here are the rules:

  • You have to comment on this post and tell me what your favourite book is and why
  • You must comment on this post on or before the 17th October 2017. Late entries won’t be accepted.
  • Only one entry will be accepted per person.
  • You don’t need to be a follower of the blog, but feel free to follow if you like what you see!
  • You must be a UK resident over the age of 16
  • You must be happy to provide a shipping address if successful.
  • Only one entrant will be selected to win both books (I wish I had more, I’m sorry)

I’ll announce the winner on the 18th October 2017 and once I’ve got the shipping address I will send out the copies ASAP. I am moving next week so I’ve timed this wonderfully (not) but I will let the winner know when I’ve sent the books so they know when to expect them!

So what’s your favourite book and why?

Down The TBR Hole #10

EtheringtonHeaders-Down the TBR

I’ve actually done a pretty good job of not buying more books this month, and I don’t think I’ve added many to by Goodreads list, so it feels like the perfect time to get rid of a few books from my list. I’m starting my internship in a few weeks too, so I don’t think I’ll have much time to read, which means sticking to the books I really want to get through!

Lia at Lost In A Story started this weekly post to trim down the Goodreads to-read list.

The rules are simple:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

WWW WEDNESDAY- 4th October 2017

EtheringtonHeaders- WWW Wednesday

DSC_0839

WWW is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Each Wednesday book enthusiasts share their reads by answering three questions:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve been making some pretty good process this week, making my way through the books I was given before I start my internship. It’s definitely given me the chance to branch out and read books that I wouldn’t necessarily have picked up myself, but I’ve actually enjoyed! Continue reading “WWW WEDNESDAY- 4th October 2017”

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a different topic that one of their bloggers answers, and they invite others to join in, by posting their answers as a comment of by creating their own blog post.

I’ve missed out on the last few weeks of Top Ten Tuesday, but I’m back and looking forward to sharing this weeks picks! The topic is Top Ten Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends (which characters do you have crushes on?), but I’m picking characters who have a special little place in my heart.

THAT’S A WRAP: September 2017

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap

September has definitely turned out to be a very good month. The autumn whether is finally starting to kick in. It definitely seems to be an appropriate season for change, and I have a lot of changes coming my way. Some of those changes might mean less blogging, but I’m hoping if I keep organised then I can still keep on top of everything. Continue reading “THAT’S A WRAP: September 2017”

REVIEW: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

EtheringtonHeaders-ReviewsDSC_0802

Rebel of the Sands was not the Western, gun-slinging saloon shoot out I was expecting. There were guns, train heists and showdowns, but there was so much more to the story than that. The town of Dustwalk is home to the people who have spent their lives amidst an endless sea of sand. Amina is one of those people, but her blue eyes mark her out as something different. Girls are considered the property of the men in their family, and with both her parents gone, Amina’s future is set to be decided by her uncle. But when she sneaks out at night dressed as a boy, to win a sharpshooting competition so she can escape to freedom, she inadvertently teams up with her opponent, Jin the Eastern Snake, when things don’t go to plan. Their chance meeting pulls her into a rebellion against the Sultan, led by one of his own sons. She has always wondered what the world has to offer, but her journey with Jin makes her consider what she might have to offer the world. Continue reading “REVIEW: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton”
