Beatrice Learns To Read turns 1! | Celebration Kick-off + LOADS OF GIVEAWAYS!


I still can’t believe that it’s been a year already and I’m about to celebrate my first year of blogging! It’s not until March 23rd that my blog will be turning 1 but I couldn’t wait a few more days to celebrate!
To be honest, I’m totally clueless on what to write for this post. I only thought of hosting a giveaway and that’s it (yep, there is a giveaway but please don’t scroll pass this yet LOL).  Forgive me, it’s my first time celebrating what they call a blogiversary and I’m just so excited. And while we’re talking about “firsts”, I just had an idea… how about a look back on my past year of blogging where I share my blog’s firsts?
Don’t worry it’s not that long.
Okay, so I just ran out of firsts to add on my list. Any other firsts you want to know?
Anyway, moving on to the more interesting part…
To celebrate my first year of blogging and as a way of saying “thanks for sticking around for a year, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog post, thanks for being my nth follower, thanks for following me on twitter, and on instagram and on bloglovin’ too, thanks for fangirling with me, thanks for sending virtual hugs, thanks for reading this even if I’m just stalling..” HAHA but seriously, THANK YOU! And with that, I’m giving away a book of choice from Book Depository amounting to $20 to one blog follower/subscriber! Not yet a follower? We can fix that! Just hit follow and you’re good! No WordPress account? Easy peasy! Subscribe via email (see right hand side of the blog), confirm your subscription (check your email for confirmation) and that will count as 5 entries already as long as you enter below!


Open Internationally to where Book Depository ships.
But wait! There’s more!
Since I can only afford to pick 1 winner for my $20 giveaway, I asked for some help from the Awesomest people in the world. And guess what? There will be 20+ more winners! If luck is tough on you and you didn’t get picked for the $20 giveaway, don’t fret! There are more stuff to win! Hint: signed books, ebooks, ARCs, bookmarks, etc. all from your favorite authors a.k.a. the Awesomest people in the world. 😉
There will be new giveaways everyday so make sure to come back and enter every single one (for good measure)!

    Happy happy blogiversary to your oh-so wonderful blog, Bea. Shall I pop the champagne already? Kidding.

    Wishing you more books to enjoy, more bookish firsts, and years of successful blogging, hence more blogiversaries ♡


  2. Congratulations on reaching this super big milestone! It’s been so great following your blog and interacting with you and talking to you about books. ❤

  9. Happy Blogoversary Bea! *confetti* One year of actively blogging is not easy (trust me, on this huhu) but I’m glad you managed! I’ve been a reader of your blog for quite some time now although much more of a lurker/reader (creepy? haha!) I look forward to interacting more with you here and on TWITTER (@MioneJeanPotter 😉 ) and fangirling about books 🙂 Thank you for the fab giveaways and congratulations again on your first year! Stay awesomesauce ^^

  11. Ohhhh my godddd there are so many books I’d have to choose from! Finding one under 20$ might be the issue but I know I’d be able to find one!! If it was any book I think I’d have to go with “The Weight of Feathers” by Anna-Marie McLemore because I read your review on it and since you said it was so much more than a retelling of Romeo and Juliet I got so much more hooked!
