That Time I Won 21 Books

Truthfully, I've never had much luck when it comes to giveaways and competitions. I can count on one hand the amount of times I have ever won something, yet I still continue to enter them in the hopes that maybe this time will be my time.
So, when I saw that Walker Books were holding a competition to win a load of books on Instagram, I knew I just had to enter it even if my chances were slim.
I entered the giveaway, then went on with my life as normal.
A couple of weeks later, I received a notification and message from Walker Books stating that I was the lucky individual who had won the wreath of books. It was safe to say that I was Happy. Ecstatic. Over the moon.

Since that day I have been anxiously waiting for the postman to knock on my door and deliver me my goodies.
And today it finally happened.
I came home from a tiring day at college and found a package waiting for me.

I dropped everything. My bag. My books. My coat. And I ran to open up the package.

At this point my mind is going crazy. As a lover of books, I can honestly say that getting book mail is one of the best feelings in the world. So, receiving a box filled to the brim with books is one hell of an amazing feeling.
I proceeded to remove each book from the box, admiring the range of stunning covers. After laying them all out, I called my family into the room to show them all the books I had won. Honestly, I just wanted to gloat.

I sat there admiring each book for quite some time, reading the titles and blurbs and just getting a feel of what each book is about. There is such a diverse range that I know that for whatever mood I am in, there will be a book to fit that mood.

After appreciating the beauty of the books, I decided to give them a new home on my second bookshelf. Personally, I believe they fit right in.

Some of the books received have been on my TBR for quite some time, such as Patrick Ness - A Monster Calls, but I never got round to buying or reading them. Now I have no excuse and I cannot wait to dive in and read these amazing books.

So here's a HUGE thank you to Walker Books for my brilliant prize!
