Stylish Blogger Award!

Sara at Just Another Story and Shannon at Stalking the Bookshelves have both awarded me The Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you so much, it's awesome =]

2. I also have a small obsession with grammar. Everything has to be spelt right and be grammatically correct. I still make mistakes though :L

3. I don't like hot countries. I don't like feeling too hot, and not being able to cool down.

4. I love Taylor Swift, and am going to see her in concert in March, and I cannot wait! I'm listening to Better Than Revenge from Speak Now right now.

5. I go through phases of playing Facebook games religiously. Yes, I used to be a FarmVille-er. But now it's all about CityVille :L

There are so many other great blogs out there, and I wish I could choose everyone! I really think you should all go and check out all the blogs listed above, as they are all worthy winners, in my opinion =]


  1. Thank you and congrats! I always look at all the books on your header and I, of course, love your pink background so I think your award is very well deserved. :)

    I don't like hot places either.

  2. Thanks so much for the award, Bella, but I hate to tell you that we (The Paperback Princesses) are an award free blog. We just don't have the time to do them justice. A comment on our blog as you're passing through is more than enough award for us. But we really do appreciate the thought. Tell me, do you correct other people's grammar as well. Unfortunately, I do all the time - terrible habit.

  3. Hi Bella, just wanted to stop by and say thanks for thinking of me when you were giving out the awards. I really do appreciate the thought.

  4. Hi Bella, thank you so much for passing the award on to me! I'm so glad you enjoy reading my blog :) I love Taylor Swift too! I wanted to catch her on tour, but unfortunately, tickets were sold out just a week after the selling started :( Have fun in her concert, though! I'm sure it'll be awesome.

  5. I love Taylor Swift too, in fact Better then Revenge is one of my favorite songs of her new album. Although the whole things is amazing! I'm not a fan of hot places either


Post a Comment

Thanks for commenting! :D I love comments, so comment away! :D

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!

Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 

While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
