Hey happy bookworms!
So merry Christmas y’all!! *inserts all the Christmassy emojis* 🎄☃
Hope you had a great festive day or just a good holiday if you don’t celebrate Christmas 🙂
It was also my birthday (yep, I’m a Christmas baby!) so that was fun 😂 I’m now 15 so like, whaaaaatttt?! But Adi wrote me a really sweet post here so thank you girl, you’re the bestest 😭💕 & 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 💖
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 💕
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 😉 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! 🤗
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 @ 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 🙈
A great discussion on classics Vs YA (and how people perceive both)
Vaishnavi has THE CUTEST BLOG DESIGN EVER! Honestly, go check it out! 😂
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! 🤗
Since it’s my birthday – here’s her post about Brazilian birthday traditions!
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!
