    I've had a seriously turbulent year but I feel like i got so much from it. I finally finished my MA and finished my "university life" and have headed back home and back down south to London. It's weird how a move can change your perspective on your life, but even with all the crazy things going on I'm really happy and that's really the best thing ever isn't it - when you just know that all your decisions have paid off and you're heading in the right direction. I hope you're also feeling like that.

    I've been reading your blog for about three years now and I've seen it evolve and change. It's one of the pleasures of being a "long term" blog reader. Thank you for all the posts that have made me smile, blogging can be hard work but your posts always seem effortless - it's a skill I'm really trying to work towards!

    The best thing to happen to me this year was my boyfriend. Not because I wanted one, in fact the opposite. He has given me a much more positive view on love and myself. I felt so bad about myself it was effecting the way I treated others and he has helped me realise I have worth and it's not all about what other people think. He really has changed my life.

    Sorry for an emotional response! Thank you for this giveaway opportunity :) xxx

    Anyway, back to the point! My name is Tarryn and my favourite book of all time is The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I read it when I was much younger (and have never read it again. Shocking I know!) and have a feeling I might have missed all the nuances, but it is the one book that has stuck with me. That manic plot really is something to behold! Number four is my lucky number, even though I don't believe in luck!

  82. I am already subscribed to you on Bloglovin and my name on there is Isabel O'Brien (although I might appear under my old blog name of Stunningly Inept? It's hard to tell how it appears?)

    You want me to choose ONE book? GASP! Seriously though, it's been a good year for books. I just had a look on my read list on Goodreads (not gonna reach my book target this year, :( ) and I think from all of them my favourite has been The Fault In Our Stars. I was a little late to the game with that book but it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me read well into the night. Those are the three things I look for in a good book.
    I haven't tweeted as I am not very good at the whole tweety thing I hope that is okay. But you can follow me and direct message me on there @izzieobrien. I had to get a new twitter recently as something strange was happening with my old account. :(

    Happy Blogmas! I am loving the blogmas posts so far.

  87. Hey Jennie!
    How are you doing? I am subscribed through bloglovin' and my username is Heerea Rikhraj. My favourite book series is Harry Potter and I always read it when I am feeling poorly because it comforts and inspires me. I also really enjoy the novels A Fine Balance, To Kill a Mockingbird and the Kite Runner. If you are looking for a new book to read, I would recommend Quiet by Susan Cain, which is a fantastic book about introverts and extroverts and is extremely engaging. My email is hkrbrilliantmonkey@gmail.com and I hope you have a marvelous day.
