So today I have a special treat! I am getting the chance to run a giveaway for all of you to win a signed hardback copy of The Poison Diaries:Nightshade by Maryrose Wood and The Duchess of Northumberland. To win this copy you have to do three things, the steps are listed at the bottom. (:

  • Step 1: 'LIKE'The Poison Diaries on Facebook you can do that here
  • Step 2: Follow Poison Diaries on Twitter you can do that here!/poisondiaries
  • Step 3: Find the Arum Maculatum plant on The Poison Diaries website and share it on twitter, this one I feel people may get confused on so I have put steps below! (: 

First go to The Poison Diaries website, ,
Click either the heart or the cross bones, it doesn't matter! (: 

Then it should open up into the garden, once in the garden look around 
and hover over plants till you find the one called 'ARUM MACULATUM' Once you find that plant 
'click and drag it over to your 'My Poison Diary' and release it onto the book


Then open your Poison Diary go to the plants page and click Share to twitter 
in the bottom left corner THEN you will need to tag it to The PoisonDiaries twitter 
AND put my blog Ya-Aholic somewhere in your tweet so they can pick one winner from each blog!

Then you are entered to win! The Poison Diaries site is AWESOME I was actually having alot of fun adding all the plants to my diary and stuff, this website is just seriously impressive!!! (: Good luck to everyone who enters! The giveaway will run for one week from today!
