2nd Blogversary & Giveaway (INT)

Just like last year, I planned a giveaway for weeks and then wrote the actual blogversary post the day of... It worked out in the end!

So, as you might have guessed, today is Enchanted by YA's second anniversary!!

(and this is my face right now but let's ignore how much I relate to sloths *realises that it's almost midnight and starts falling asleep*)

Continuing with the tradition (if you can call it that after 1 time) I started last year, here are some of the things I've done through the blog, 2015-16:
  • Posted 126 times O.o
  • Found another 240 absolutely brilliant follower friends.
  • Created long-lasting friendships with other like-minded book/writing people that brighten my day (you know who you are and if you don't, it's probably you ahah)
  • Found myself completely immersed in a community that may have its occasional dramas, but never fail to be supportive and encouraging and awesome
  • Discovered new blogs, people and books alike that remind me why I love doing what I do.
  • Read a looooooooot and reviewed quite a bit too!
  • Struck up the courage to post about my writing and current project. Exhilarating and terrifying.
  • Started a bookish Etsy shop called Enchanted Bottle Craft. And people like it. People actually buy my little creations. It's a feeling I can't describe.
  • Attended multiple book conventions (YALC, UKYA Extravaganza, YA Shot) that I'll never forget.
  • Realised that it's okay to take a step back sometimes and breathe. Remember that self-imposed pressure isn't necessary.

Amazing people (but by no means all of them!):
Denise @ The Bibliolater , Katie @ Katie's Jumbled Thoughts , Sally @ The Dark Dictator , Sofia @ The Reading Fangirl , Christine @ Wee Reader , Olivia @ Olivia's Catastrophe , Carrie @ The Book Goddess , Tanya @ A Book Paradise , Cari @ My Addiction: Books , Cait @ Paper Fury , Erin @ Angel Erin's Book Obsession , Kariny @ Kariny's Teen Boox Frenzy , Brooke @ Brooke Bibliophile , Gennifer @ Ready Set Read , Anna @ Anne Books

Plus the other bazillion people people I want to list. All of you.


Now it's time for the giveaway!
     With my blog's tag line being "Living in a different fantasy, paranormal, mythical, sci-fi, or dystopian world every day" I decided to include all of the different genres - much like I did last year but instead of books (to UK only) it will be excessive amounts of swag (INT welcome).
