    Congratulations on your 3yr Blogversary! I had my 3rd year milestone earlier this year and looking back it is amazing how much my blog and I have grown. But if we are talking fears I am still not brave enough for audio or video so my youtube profile is just for watching and following. Thank you for the giveaway – especially that its international.

    Happy Anniversary!! I sincerely love all your blog posts✨ I always find whatever you post aesthetically pleasing. I sometimes tend to think about that too. I barely post pictures on my IG due to wanting it to be perfect and comparing my feed to others etc.

  4. Ilsa says

    AH YAY it’s international! Your blog is soo prettyyy! <3 I LOVE IT! Just started following you. 3 years is an AMAZING feat! Cracking books on spines give me an existential crisis!

  5. Amanda @ Vivalabooks says

    Congratulations!!! Three years passed so fast! I love your blog, the aesthetics of the photos and I must say, I was absolutely in love with Doramas after watching a video in which you recommended W: Two Worlds, I never stopped watching after that!
    I look forward to a video about ballet! <3
    (Fingers crossed for the giveaway!)

    CONGRATULATION TO MY FAVOURITE BOOK RELATED BLOG EVER! I’m so happy and proud of you ♥. Korean dramas are my weakness (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo destroyed me, Introverted Boss had me in shook and W – Two Worlds is my current obsession). K-pop is also ruining my life – in good way ofc. Lyric to ‘some’ BTS songs is getting me like T_T….
    OMG, REMINDER!!! I need to finish Percy asap. One last book and I’m finished T_T.

    awwwwwweee i got so teary eyed reading this post. i can’t believe it’s been three years. WHAT. i still remember so clearly reading one of your earliest posts about how to gain inspiration & your favourites….i feel like i may be conflating the two a bit but i just remember reading about your love for rookie mag, ted talks, yoga, and acai bowls and being like WOW I LOVE THIS GIRL ALREADY. it rly is such a crazy thing to think about how many individual actions lead us to this moment here & now. it’s crazy to think about all the things that had to lead to you starting this blog & also all the things that had to happen for me to create my blog and then somehow for our paths to converge??? it’s so weird but I APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH bc my life is 10x better knowing you! you are such an inspiration HONESTLY. i admire how you’re able to do SO much w your blog, instagram, youtube, etc etc while also juggling being a ballet dancer! and how everything you do is always still of such high quality!!! you’re also just like the nicest person ever?? so anyway here’s to your three years of blogging!!! that is such a huge achievement, CONGRATULATIONS. and i’m so honoured to be able to call you a friend bc you’re so awesome <33333

    I had this existential crisis whenever I finish a good book. Why no one like the characters exist in real life? I need them in my life. I don’t wanna live my life. And also boybands why do they torture me like this(them dancing sexily)! what have I done to deserve this torture?

  11. Noon Apisaksiri says

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway! Big fan of your page. My answer is definitely when I finish a good show or a good book. The suspense is too much to bare haha

  12. madeline huh says

    aww CONGRATS and happy third birthday to your blog!! you are definitely one of my very favorite book blogs and i can’t wait to see where your blog goes in the future! i admire you so much and i’m so thankful that i get to read your blog <3 and having too many tabs open on my computer gives me existential crises lol.

  13. Tamera Nicol says

    Congrats on three years with your blog. I have been following a few years ago ever since I have been following your bookstagram. My existential crisis is when I so many books to read but so little time. Now I have an endless TBR book pile of all the books I want to read.

  14. Bri G says

    CONGRATULATIONS and happy birthday to your blog! Twirling Pages is honestly one of my favourite book blogs out there *heart eyes* thinking about all the amazing books I want to read but also how much homework I have for uni gives me an existential crisis because why can’t i have more days in the week???

  15. Kaitlin @ Next Page Please! says

    aaaah happy blogiversary xan! thank you for letting me on your blog and i can’t believe its been three years. swear to god it goes by hella fast huh? my existential crisis is always when i realize that i’m behind on my reading challenge (oops!) <3

  16. Mafalda Nunes says

    HAPPY BLOGIVERSARYYYYY!!! The thing that gives me existencial crisis are book or TV series that take me back to my childhood, like Harry Potter, The Vampire Diaries, Twilight… and also food that remind me of my childhood like lasagna, hot dogs and other lovely portuguese foods.

  17. Taasia says

    Happy Blog Birthday!! My bookish existential crises is reading a series starter or a sequel with an awful ending (i.e cliffhangers) because it kills me, and finishing a really good book, because I sometimes get a book slump and/or hangover.

  18. TaraM says

    HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY XAN! This is really amazing, i only found you blog last year and ever since i have really looked forward to every one of your posts, thanks so much for inspiring me to spend more time on my own blog xx.

  19. Nikita Rajkumar says

    AHH HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU AND YOUR BLOG!! I feel like your blog is an extended version of yourself so it must be both of your birthdays right? (great logic here I know) I have many existential crises like when I can’t get my hands on the next book in a series, when there is no longer a steady supply of Reese’s PBC and also when I’ve not read a book and someone spoils it. UGH IT GETS ME EVERY TIME xx Lots of love for the many many years to come xx Nikita

    Congrats on your 3 year blogiversary!! I’ve been following your blog for about a year now, and I absolutely adore it! Things that give me an existential crisis are cliffhangers: in tv shows and books. Thanks for hosting this incredible giveaway and Happy Blog Birthday!!

  22. Elke says

    Wow, three years, congrats! I’d wonder if I was looking at myself in the future, but no, your blog looks so much better and has an aesthetic that would never work for me 😀
    I totaly get your existential crisis thing! I get it from books fairly often, but it can honestly be everything that sparks a chain of thoughts that end up with me doubting whatever I’m doing and why. Pretty tiring, but always interesting 🙂

  23. Marley Millar says

    I can’t believe it’s been THREE YEARS! 🎉 You are by far my absolute favorite book blogger, booktuber, bookstagrammer.. you getvthe point! 😛 The last book I read that gave me an extesential crisis was probably Everything, Everything. As for movies, the BEST extesential crisises I’ve had have been with M. Night Shyamalan films. They’re AMAZING!

  24. hanabilqisthi says

    Happy blogversary 😊🎉🎉 When I was younger, I felt like I have to tell the world about everything too so your story is relatable. So glad to know that now you learn it is okay to change 😊 Story that feel relatable for me. I think being blogger and bookstagrammer somerime give me existential crisis 😊😁

  25. Linda says

    Happy Blog-anniversary! ლ(●ↀωↀ●)ლ
    I really enjoy reading your posts. I like your blog in general; the design and pictures.
    I hope you continue blogging and doing youtube videos.
    btw something that gives me an existential crisis is me trying to save my drawing because it just gets worse!

  26. samtasia says

    congratulations! it’s awesome that you were able to stick with this blog for so long. and here’s to many more years!
    what gives me an existential crisis? going back to school and the AMOUNT of books I want to buy but can’t because I have no money 🙁

  27. Caitlin says

    Books and tv shows give me an existential crisis xD also seeing my friends becoming more accomplished than me hah 🙁

  28. Alexandra Perc says

    Happy bloganniversary! The most furstrating thing for me is the careful way I must write my reviews, so I won’t tell anything bad about authors, people or cause misunderstandings! Thank you for the giveaway!

  29. ❤ Delaney ❤ says

    The news always gives me an existential crisis haha 😂

    Congrats on three years though! That’s super awesome!

  30. Michelle says

    Congrats on 3 years!! I love Twirling Pages & hope you keep doing it for a long time!! I think emotional books like Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock & Fangirl give me an existential crisis!

  31. Helen Chan says

    CONGRATS on 3 years! I love your blog!! My existential crisis are when books have good beginnings then the later half of the book starts getting boring. Also, when the endings don’t end how I want it to end or leaves me on a cliffhanger.

  32. Emily Dang says

    I am so happy for you! Three years is amazing and the blog is still going strong! What causes an existential crisis for me… SUITS. WHY IS MY LIFE NOT SUITS.

  33. Kayleena Shantz says

    happy three years! your instagram and youtube still amaze me bc aesthetic. (and i don’t mean to say that and hold you up on a pedestal and expect things from you!!!! i like you as you lol) i think every book gives me an existential crisis bc my life is so ordinary and normal while kids in books that are my age are fighting off monsters and demons and secretly have super powers. idk lol.

  34. Zaira Fernando says

    Happy three years of blogging! I first found you on bookstagram when you were starting and I’m so happy that you’ve grown into having a blog & a youtube channel since then <3 to answer your question, tbh every book I read that's coming-of-age gives me an existential crisis haha

  35. Rui Ann says

    CONGRATS ON THREE YEARS OF BLOGGING!!! i only found out your blog last year through your bookstagram and omg i LOVE LOVE LOVE all the twirlingpages accounts 99(it means a long time in chinese‘’久久‘’/ ”will continue loving your accounts for a long time” in malaysian slang heheh) KDRAMAS GIVE ME EXISTENTIAL CRISIS BC HOW CAN HUMANS BE SO BEAUTIFUL AND DO THINGS SO SMOOTH I MEAN I CANT EVEN WALK PROPERLY WITHOUT TRIPPING OVER MY OWN FEET????

    not to mention people who become very successful at a young age bc the only thing i succeed right now in is being a coach potato idk.

  36. Shelby Scott says

    What gives me an existencial crisis? Many things, many books… But right now, with the whole GoT thing, well… GAME OF THRONES! And now that season 7 is over, and I have to wait like, two years, for a new season… What am I supposed to do with my life until then?

  43. Graciela Fateche says
