What I Want to Buy Next Month
This month has been pretty amazing blogging, reading, writing and book-wise. I won an “Honourable Mention” award in Becca & Tay’s Book Bloggers Awards which was amazing! You can read my post about it here. I also had my 2nd Blogoversary and there are tons of giveaways still going on for the next month which you can find here! I also reached 2,000 Twitter followers which was awesome, got a new blog banner and made some changes to Neverland Blog Tours, which was all new and exciting.
Away from the blogging world, my holiday in May to the Lake District is all booked and paid so I’ve been making lists after lists after lists of stuff I need to take with me! I’m so excited as I’ve never been before and am hoping to get some blog posts written about it when I get back! I’ve also started watching Once Upon a Time again as it’s just been put on Netflix – I was in dire need of a new show to watch and this may just be it!
