To all my favourite bloggers…

Hey happy bookworms!

So merry Christmas y’all!! *inserts all the Christmassy emojis* πŸŽ„β˜ƒ
Hope you had a great festive day or just a good holiday if you don’t celebrate Christmas πŸ™‚
It was also my birthday (yep, I’m a Christmas baby!) so that was fun πŸ˜‚ I’m now 15 so like, whaaaaatttt?! But Adi wrote me a really sweet post here so thank you girl, you’re the bestest πŸ˜­πŸ’• & also thank you to all the people in the comments who also wished me a happy birthday *here’s a hug*

Anyway! I’ve seen Sophie & Lais do this idea and I think it’s the sweetest so I wanted to turn this post into my little Christmas present to you guys! Also, throwback! I used to do a thank you post in December each year to thank all the people that had followed me that year but there’s just too many of you this year, which I am eternally grateful for! So firstly, a huge thank you to all of you that decided to click that follow button this year πŸ’–
But there’s a couple of extra special people that I need to mention…

How could I not start off with my girl Adi?! Blogging over at one in a million, she is the literal best! Like, you won’t meet someone nicer (and meaner!) You’re the highlight of blogging for me & ily πŸ’•
Lol I don’t really know what else to say so here’s a couple of my favourite posts from you (How can people write huge paragraphs?!) Obviously your best post is the birthday letter to me πŸ˜‰ but let’s see what else…

I loved our collab on reading a book without knowing what it was about or even picking it because it has a nice cover – basically what I’m trying to say is our don’t judge a book by its cover post! Why can’t I word?

Next up is Sophie! You said I was a positive member of the community in your post but girl, have you seen yourself?! You’re like the ACTUAL nicest person on here (sorry Adi – she won’t mind, I promise) & I’m just so glad that I’ve met you! You’re always so friendly, it’s a pleasure to talk to you! πŸ€—

One of her posts: Her best books of 2019

I love Isa & she’s always guaranteed to make me smile with her constant sass-o-meter at 100%. I love how some of her posts are light-hearted & fun but then some of them are more real & serious, which is sometimes difficult to balance but she does it flawlessly!

Great post: some unpopular opinions

Becky @Β moth of the day is a blogger I love because of how unique her content is! I love her commentaries since they always make me laugh & her writing & bookish content is on point. And she’s the sweetest, always commenting & liking & I just want you to know that I appreciate you so much!

The start of her commentary on Le Morte D’Arthur

Xandra is an incredible blogger who’s also really sweet! She shares a lot of useful posts which I love reading! She’s been blogging for less time than me but I feel like she’s got her stuff together so much more than me πŸ™ˆ

A great discussion on classics Vs YA (and how people perceive both)

Untitled (1) (1) (1)

Vaishnavi has THE CUTEST BLOG DESIGN EVER! Honestly, go check it out! πŸ˜‚
Anyway, Vaishnavi isn’t the most consistent blogger or whatever but I genuinely really love her posts (so it’s worth the wait!) She’s a lovely & fantastically quirky person too (so what more could you want?)

A really interesting musical discussion

Lais @ the bookish skies is a fabulous blogger who posts about a variety of things from books (obviously!) to music & TV shows to posts about her home country of Brazil. I love chatting to her about music artists & I love that we’ve both given each other great recommendations to listen to! πŸ€—

Since it’s my birthday – here’s her post about Brazilian birthday traditions!

Starlight Strands - stars & strands of literaturecropped-header2.pngAnd finally allΒ my girls over at TDV! I love all of you & I’m so excited to continue to work with all of you on the diamond village – it’s looking great so far! πŸ’•

So yeah! I know I didn’t write huge paragraphs but I want you all to know that I appreciate all of you & that you guys never fail to make my day!

Thanks for reading! If you didn’t catch my first post over on TDV then here it is!

Thanks for a great year guys!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY EL!!!!!*!#(!(!!! it’s so exciting your birthday is so close to christmas! i mean, at least i consider it exciting, but i know that sometimes being born around a holiday can be actually very annoying. i’m born only a couple days before children’s day in my country, and a lot of kids get presents this day, but i never did, because my birthday was already so close. do your parents/family give you different gifts for christmas and your birthday?
    i’m really happy to have been mentioned in your post. your songs recommendations are the best!!!!!!! thank you so so so much for all your kind words and for always paying attention to my posts and what i have to say. it means a lot, truly!
    hope you had a lovely day! happy 15! πŸ’ž
