This Northern Gal turns 3!

That’s right it’s my blog’s birthday! This little corner of the internet has just turned three!

This Northern Gal's birthday

When I decided to start a brand new blog in 2014, I knew that this time I wanted to commit 110% to it. I had fallen in love with blogging and wanted to show it some care and attention. Over the past three years, I really have loved blogging here on my online home. Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t always been easy and there have been times where I have grown frustrated with almost everything. But, This Northern Gal has given me a platform to write and share my story and I will always be grateful for that.

More than that though, I’m grateful for you. That you take the time to come here and read what I have to say, that you comment and engage with me. That you’ve made This Northern Gal more than a bundle of coding and some photos.

Thanks to you, I’ve written posts I’m super proud of.

Thanks to you, I’ve worked with some phenomenal brands.

Thanks to you, I’ve made friends from all over the internet.

Thanks to you, opening up This Northern Gal has felt like coming home.

With that in mind, I’m going to try something new today. I’m going to host a giveaway to thank you for supporting This Northern Gal for the past three years. I wish I could send something to each and every one of you, but I hope this goes someway towards showing my gratitude.

Because it’s me, the most appropriate thing seems to be to send some of my favourite books your way. One person will win a copy of Throne of Glass, The Night Circus and Wuthering Heights. I’ll ship them directly from Amazon UK so unfortunately this is only open to those of you in the UK. To find out how to win, read on!

The competition will run for one week and I will be in touch with the prize winner. If they do not respond within 24 hours, a new winner will be picked. All you have to do is leave me a book recommendation in the comments, though there are some bonus entries if you are interested! Good luck!

    1. I’ve got my eye on that! Since you got me back on The Sin Eater’s Daughter train, I’ll trust you on this! x

  1. Hmmm…so many to choose from. No doubt you have already read many if the ones I would pick too! How about Like Chocolate for Water by Laura Esquivel. It was recommended to me by a friend and I was unsure of it to begin with, but after less than a chapter knew it would be one of those books you dont want to stop reading for any reason. Loved it.

  2. Since your blog stole my birthday, do I automatically win? Also I finished Throne of Glass and it was an excellent recommendation

    1. I told you you would love it! Plus, you’ve got the rest of the series to go now. Who’s your favourite character? x
