Win Sarah J Maas signed

Hello lovely people. Below is your word of the day but I wanted to do something a bit different today as well. Last night I went to Sarah J Maas’ book tour for Tower of Dawn and I just wanted to share a few of my thoughts with you then I’ll get down to the giveaway.

Sarah is a lovely person and a very engaging speaker. I came away from her talk feeling inspired to write (and also to re-read her books that I’ve read and get on to the others!)

She’s so in love with her characters it’s amazing. She cares for each one individually and it really inspired me with my own fantasy novel, which I had put aside for Nano but now really want to take up again… oops.

I didn’t win the raffle to meet her but to be honest – I was glad. Now don’t get me wrong I would have loved to, but there were so many young and excited girls who would definitely have treasured it more and I’m glad they got to meet her instead.

If you haven’t already – go and listen to some of her previous interviews, you won’t regret it.


Now to get to the bit you’re all waiting for!

The prize: an exclusive signed edition of Tower of Dawn with sprayed edges which is exclusive to Waterstones for Sarah’s UK events.

How to win: to enter you need to follow me on Twitter and RT the tweet below!

Extra entry: if you really want to win you can get an extra entry by following my blog and commenting on this post below with your Twitter handle so I can make sure you’ve entered on Twitter too.

Closes: 7/12/17

The winner will be drawn at random! Good luck lovelies.




Word of the Day : November 24, 2017


adjective myoo-suh-LAJ-uh-nus

1 : stickyviscid

2 : of, relating to, full of, or secreting mucilage

Did You Know?

Unlike its meanings, there’s nothing terribly sticky about the origin and use of mucilaginous. Like thousands of other words in the English language, mucilaginous (and the noun mucilage) oozed out of Latin during the 15th century. Mucilage is from Late Latin’s word for “mucus,” mucilago, and is used for the gelatinous substance found in various plants, such as legumes or seaweeds. Mucilaginous stuck as the noun’s adjective form and is used by scientists and foodies alike for sticky or mucous things.


“It started quietly last summer, when social media watchers began buzzing about it. Tweens had struck on a recipe for a mucilaginous, stomach-turning substance and were posting videos of themselves playing with it. The slime trend had hit.” — Robert Klara, Adweek, 8 May 2017

“… okra is best picked right off the vine, before it gets too big. For this recipe, a simple bath in milk, a romp in a bowl of flour and cornmeal, and a dip in hot oil are all that’s needed to render the mucilaginous veggie into the ambrosial stuff of cafeteria dreams.” — Courtney Bond, Texas Monthly, July 2016


Thanks for reading guys, hope you like the giveaway! Good luck!

  1. That is quite a word of the day Jennie. I’m going to be hunting for somewhere to use that now. I’m glad you had an inspiring night. Sounds great. Liam (@notsotweets)

  2. Just came across your blog on Twitter and I’m so glad I did! I recently started reading again after I left it way too long but I adore the Throne of Glass series, so jealous that you managed to go to Sarah’s event! (@luchiahoughton on Twitter)

  3. I’m glad you had a good time at the event! It’s lovely when listening to authors speak about their novels and characters re-inspires you to carry on with your own. Have you been working on it for Nano, or did you decide to continue it at a later date? Here’s my twitter handle for the giveaway @katelovescolour!

    1. It was so good! I left it for nano because I hadn’t touched it for so long I was struggling so started a new one. I’ll go back to it though like I always do aha

  4. I wish I could have been there! I am happy to hear you had a great time! She is such an amazing women. Very passionate about her characters, though she is the one who made them up so I guess she should be. Have a great day!

    1. Thank you! Good luck!
      True, but I feel some people get fed up with their work after a while so it was nice she was still excited!

  5. I wish I had a chance to attend an event like that, but I’m always happy for people who have that opportunity. Glad you had an amazing time! 😊 And thank you for a generous giveaway! ❤️️ ( @_Sandra_R_ )
