Writing from the Tub's Fourth Birthday + Giveaway!

Tomorrow Writing from the Tub will turn four, how crazy is that? I can't believe I've been blogging for this long and I'm really proud of myself that my little corner of the Internet is still up and running after all of this time.

I've gone through countless terrible layouts to finally get to this lovely one and I've grown and changed so much as both a blogger and a person over the last four years. I've honed my reading tastes, joined memes, left memes, experimented with review styles, taken part in countless blog tours and attended a tonne of exciting events. I've made some of my best friends through blogging and I'm so honoured to count fellow bloggers, publicists and writers amongst my friends. There have been people who commented on my first few blog posts who still read my blog and I'm so grateful that there are people who have been there right from the beginning and still enjoy reading my reviews.

It's been a crazy four years; when I started Writing from the Tub I had recently graduated from uni and when I look at how my life has changed since then I can't believe so much has been crammed into four years! The bookish world has changed so much in that time - when I started blogging vampires ruled supreme and we've gone through so many different trends since then. Blogs have changed too - the community has grown, Booktubing is booming and blogs are becoming slick and professional. Blogging is getting more and more recognition and I couldn't be prouder to be part of such a welcoming, warm community. 

I'll never be able to say enough thank yous to everybody who's supported this blog, read my reviews, commented, chatted to me on Twitter and stuck around while I've had numerous dry spells. But to try and show my gratitude I want to do a little giveaway! 

So, to be in with a chance of winning a £10 Amazon gift card (to spend on anything you like but, honestly, it's 
probably going to be books, isn't it?) please fill in the form below. This is going to be international but I can only send gift cards to or

This will run until January 23rd 2014 so good luck and I'll announce the winner here on the 24th!

I've had the best four years being part of the book blogging community - here's to the next four!
