My Crazy Bookish World Turns 1! - Giveaway {AUS only}

By 4:30 pm

Dear My Crazy Bookish World

Before I had you I was merely a simple reader who didn't know about the whole world of Young Adult literature. I searched the library hoping for a new book that I was interested in that I hadn't already read. I never ventured out further than the Harry Potter and the Twilight series. I was happy, but I didn't know what I was missing out on. You have opened me up to a whole new world of literature and this past year has been a blast!

But with you, you have also caused me a great deal of unwanted stress. Catching terrible cases of writers block while I try and put my thoughts into words. Falling behind in my review books and my goodreads challenge. Putting all this effort into a post and not receiving any feedback! All these things add up and create a huge mess so I end up having to take a hiatus. Sometimes I have to take a break from you because too much of something can become bad.

Also trying to juggle you between my social and school life. Sometimes you get in the way of my priorities such as school exams and assessments. Sometimes you even take over my reading and cause me to fall into a massive slump. You're not perfect and I'm constantly having to keep up maintenance. I give you a new look every now and then and I fix whatever problems may pop up. Most of the time you frustrate me when you refuse to cooperate with me. For example you won't let me put my GFC up! Why do you continue to torment me?!

Even though some people might say you're more trouble than you're worth, I can never agree. You've enabled me to meet people who are like-minded and have the same interests. I've been able to go to many events and premieres for movies. You've kept me updated with what's happening in the bookish world and lastly you re-kindled my relationship with Sunny after many years.

Thank you for taking me on a long journey and I intend to continue it.

Yours sincerely 


Well that was a weird post...I don't even know what inspired me to write something like that. You may relate and have the same feelings to your blog but to me my blog is like my child. I try and take care of it and give it enough attention.

But anyways, oh my gosh can you believe it's already been a year since this blog has been up and running? To me it feels like just yesterday when I was only a newbie trying to figure out what to name this blog. I remember it was so difficult just to change things as simple as the font but I can't say I have everything mastered as there are still some things I can't figure out.

To celebrate my 1 year blogoversary I have decided to host a giveaway. I'm sorry to those overseas but this is open to Australia only! Enter to win 3 physical copies that are upcoming releases in May published by Five Miles Press.

  1. Aw Francoise this post made me so happy!! I remember setting up your blog with you over Skype and now I get to see your posts popping up on my feed. How fast does a year pass?! Crazy! I love how your blog has made us so much closer and I can always rant to you. Thank you and Happy Blogoversary My Crazy Bookish World!

    PS. I loved the letter format!! x

  2. Yay Francoise, I am so glad you've stuck with your blog even after some frustrating moments! I know I have poured sweat and tears into my blog but in the end, it makes it worth it when I get to chat with you guys over books. Happy Blogoversary to you!

  4. Happy 1 year blogiversary, Francoise!!

  5. I love the letter! I think a lot of bloggers can relate to what you wrote to your blog about. Happy Blogoversary! I hope your second year of blogging is even better than the first. :)

  6. I totally understand the frustration! At the moment I have a bunch of posts I want to write but they have to wait until I finish my exams tomorrow. I haven't picked up a book that wasn't a textbook since last Saturday. I'm going slightly mad.

    I've made some awesome blogosphere friends though, so I definitely get the whole pros and cons thing. But it is fun! Despite the stress.

    Happy anniversary :)
