How quickly the time goes, huh? How much you learn! God, my very first reviews were terrible. Just go look at my review for The Hunger Games! Nothing like how I review now. In the past four years, I have worked out my review writing style and Once Upon a Bookcase has come on leaps and bounds, and I've found a way of organising myself that works for me and takes the pressure off. I have held three blog events - Sex in Teen Lit Month, Body Image and Self-Perception Month and Death and Bereavement Week - with another, LGBTQ YA Month, coming in July (which is going to be AWESOME! Watch this space!), I have started A Novel Cover Up, a feature to look at how covers are designed, and held a virtual panel event with RHCP. The blog has had several different looks, and lots of author interviews and guest posts! And, on top of all of that, I've had the most awesome blog readers a blogger could ask for! It's been a great four years!
And, to help me celebrate, with the help of some wonderful publishers, I am having a giveaway! 16 books are up for grabs thanks to Simon and Schuster Children's Books, Hot Key Books, Indigo, RHCP and Hodder and Stoughton! These are the books you can win:
