Odd ramblings of an obsessed reader


Crushingcinders Blogiversary Giveaway



Crushingcinders Turns Three 


Blogiversity giveaway. Crushingcinders was born with my first post The Beginning. Back then I was not sure what I was getting into.

Three years later I have formed amazing friendships with fellow bloggers, readers and writers. I have learnt so much about blogging and social media, and found out how much I still need to learn – coding up next!

Most of all I have amassed an enormous and frighteningly, courageously humongous TBR (To be Read pile), which has been known to threaten me with suffocation if I don’t obey its alarming plead for attention.

5 important things I have learnt from Crushingcinders



And now for…


One winner will receive a book of choice to the value of US $13. International as long as the Book Depository ships to you

  9. Antonela

    I didn’t read a lot last year, but the best book I read was THERAPY, by Sebastian Fitzek. Psychological thrillers like this one are my favorites, but the main reason why I loved it so much was because it got me out of a slump – I just couldn’t put it down! It was so good!
    Congratulations on three years, Sue! ♥ My best wishes for you and CrushingCinders 🙂

    PS: I’m addicted to bookish Twitter too! ahaha ♥

  13. Summer

    Happy Blogoversary! One of my favorite books I read last year was Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy, I liked that there was some humor in there, some romance, some Dolly Parton, and a heroine who doesn’t look like so many of the other YA heroines.
