Hi this is Chloe from Writer-on-Wheels again! Just to let you know that I have listed my latest review of You, Me and Thing: The Curse of the Jelly Babies!
I just wanted to say that I'm at number 2&5 on the listing, and I just forgot to add my blog name the first time, and tried to explained it the second but kinda made myself look like a idiot, haha.
Hope me being at two places is okay, Thanks! W-O-W xoxo

I'm glad the challenge has started off with lots of reviews, I just wish people would write their links more uniformly, so I know what I'm clicking on.
