a new venture and giveaway announcement


‘Ello, ‘Ello,

It’s been a while since I last did a post that wasn’t 100 percent book related. I’m going to jump right in with a little life update, my new venture, and finally, the Giveaway I’ve got coming up.

If you’ve been with me a while, you know there will be times when I’m M.I.A. Yes, the blog and I have an on/off relationship, but deep down, we love each other dearly. The truth is, I’m just super busy with work that by the time I have the chance to read on a night, I just want to sleep instead. This does not mean that I’m quitting blogging – I’m not. Not even slightly, I’m just in a little slump at the moment and need some to recuperate.

So that’s the life update – thrilling, I know. The next update is that I’ve started a Podcast! Having my own podcast show is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now. I never had the time to set up accounts and such like so it took me a long time to get round to doing it. But this is my brand new venture, and in time, it will likely replace my YouTube channel. I spend most of my days editing videos now, and honestly, that’s enough for me. I don’t need to be editing my own videos as well after work. Seriously, I applaud anyone who does full-time YouTube and spends all day making videos for work too because damn, that is hard.

Anyway, here is my first ever Podcast episode:


Hi everyone,   It's Lucy of lucyrambles.com, here with a brand new podcast. Just giving it a go because why not?    The book I review in this was gifted to me by EmpireBookTours and Jeanine Croft in exchange for an honest review. Have you read it?    If you enjoyed this podcast then let me know and I can keep making them.    Have a good end to your weeks, Lucy xo

It’s true that I didn’t script the episode because I prefer to ‘speak from the heart’ – ew. No, I actually just didn’t have the time and I feel more relaxed when I’m not stressing about saying something incorrectly. If you enjoyed it, please let me know so I can continue making them.

Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…

Oh, how I love a good Giveaway. For the first 12 days of December, I’m doing a 12 Days of Christmas Bookish Giveaway over on my Twitter @bookblogrt, @lucyrambles, and on Instagram @lucyrambles_.

This Giveaway is UK only – apologies to international fellow book lovers. At this time of year it’s too difficult to get things shipped internationally, especially with the on-going lockdowns. Everyone’s buying Christmas presents online too, so it makes sense to keep it to the UK.

Anyway, here are the details you need:

I’m so excited to do this as I’m teaming up with loads of Small Businesses who really need our support more than ever. I’d love for as many UK Book Bloggers/BookTubers and book lovers as possible to get involved. It’s going to be super fun!

Best wishes, and festive cheer,
Lucy xo
