good objects

I have been waiting for some excuse to host a giveaway simply because I’m so damn grateful for the existence of this book blogging community.Β 500 followers

I’ve got some good news, that being the giveaway. (I’m so lame, I know)

AND I’ve got some bad news. But telling you that is going to involve lots and lots of weeping and I’m not sure I’m ready for that yet. The bad news will be revealed in September.

Now back to the giveaway. I won’t be dragging this out -much. lol. But I want to thank all of you guys who took the time to read my blog posts. The Twitter geeks who stood out there and fangirled with me in my time of need πŸ˜‚ I won’t mention any names but I’m seriously so grateful you guys exist.Image result for hugs gifI just want to point out the fact that most of you guys have stopped being my followers at some point. You’ve genuinely become people I’m incredibly proud to call my friends, best friends even. I love you so much. The other day on Twitter I was talking about how I literally daydream sometimes about meeting you guys at some book convention and how my reaction would be if that ever happened.

Okay, well, without further ado, let’s discuss the giveaway’s guidelines, shall we?

There will be ONE winner, and the winner will get to pick one of the books shown above, some I read and loved, others I’m looking forward to reading!

Β You must be at least 13 years old or have your parents’/guardian’s permission to participate in this giveaway.

The winner will be chosen at random on September 9 and will be contacted via an email during the next 24 hours or so. If the winner doesn’t respond to the email within 36 hours, another winner will be picked, and so on.

You should be a book blogger to participate in the giveaway, and you must be following my blog.

The giveaway is open internationally as long as Book Depository ships to your country (I will check if it does, of course) but please read this list first.

The winner will have to choose one book among the ones I mentioned. And that will happen after I contact them and ask them for their shipping address, which won’t be shared with anyone and will be deleted the second the order has successfully shipped, along with their email address, of course.

Once the purchase is complete, I will NOT be held responsible for the package afterwards. If it’s damaged, I’ll contact Book Depository for you but I won’t pay to replace the book.

To enter the giveaway, you’ll have to like and comment on the blog post. No need to write an essay! A couple of nice words or a small phrase would suffice. Feel free to ask me anything in the comments-section and/or leave me a recommendation (bookish or otherwise)
There is no way Rafflecopter will know if you actually did this part of the entry, but I’ll definitely be checking. What you think of my blog, which I’ve been working on for over a year, means the world to me! I hope you understand XD

Good luck!!

    Whooptiedoodoo! I didn’t forget – little applause for myself.

    And a HUGE applause for you! Again, congratulations on all those awesome followers!!

    I’ve read the blurb of every book that I don’t own yet.. *which is 4 of them* and I cannot make a choice. But I’m joining in anyway! I’ll figure it out if I should be the lucky winner, haha.

    Awesome that you’re doing a giveaway! Mine’s also planned for when I reach 500 followers, but that’ll be a while still. [Or so I hope because my bank account wants me to take a break..]

      Haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Go Kathy!!
      Thank you so much! 😍 Well, that’s a good thing! Most of those books I really want to read, myself. (Book Depository doesn’t ship to my country, lmao πŸ˜‚)
      I was actually surprised when I visited the site, the books are relatively cheap, and the shipping is free, so I got really motivated and thought it was totally worth it!! Good luck πŸ˜„

        You’re very, very welcome!

        I’m so looking forward to ACOWAR, ugh. It’s starting to hurt; I want to read it so badly, haha!
        Oh my. Seriously? That must suck that it doesn’t ship to your country! I always compare BD to Amazon and see what’s cheapest. Their prices always change so it always depends on the books I want to buy, haha.
        Thanks!! πŸ˜€

          Ohh I thought the prices are really close to the ones on Amazon! But on Amazon there are conditions you must comply with in order for your package to be valid for free shipping. On the other hand, BD can literally ship you a 4$ book for free. Ugh I hate the fact that it doesn’t ship to my country. Life would be way easier if it did πŸ˜‚ I pay for my books in my local bookstore almost double the price one pays for them on Amazon. It’s frustrating!!

            Most of the time they are, but you never know when you might come across a difference of 4 / 5 euros [in my case]. That’s like another extra book to buy then, haha!
            I’d say it’s time to move to a country where they DO ship to. I can’t imagine anything more horrifying than living in a country BD and Amazon don’t ship to..

      Thank you!! Welcome to this crazy book blogging community, then! Well, the most important thing is communicating with people through commenting on other bloggers’ posts and participating in tags and bookish memes!! Use tags before publishing your blog posts so WordPress members can easily find your posts (type in things like, reading, book blogging, books, young adult, book review, etc.) Don’t hesitate to visit other blogs to brainstorm and find out what interests people and grabs them the most (like GIFs, fanart, and that sort of thing) Good luck!!

Cheers to many more days of blogging! Obviously I’m going to enter your giveaway! It’s so exciting! The books you chose are really awesome!

      Thank you so much Eva!! πŸ˜πŸ’˜ No but here’s the thing, I’m like genuinely proud of you. Especially that time you uploaded those booktube videos, it was like seeing my little sister going out of her comfort zone and achieving stuff (I’m tearing up right now) That little step you took inspired me on so many levels. During the last couple of months, I honestly believe that I earned a friend, not just a follower who likes and comments on my blog posts, you know? πŸ˜­πŸ’– I can’t stand the thought of blogging if it weren’t for people like you always being there for me and merely being a part of this journey. Awh hell, I’m such a drama queen. I’m really glad you like the choices! Good luck sweetie 😘 And don’t worry, everything’s perfectly fine πŸ’–

    OMGGGG CONGRATULATIONS ON 500 FOLLOWERS!!!!!!! I’m so happy for you and you deserve so many more! And thank you for hosting a giveaway! I have my eye on History Is All You Left Me bc I’ve never read a book by Adam Silvera so I’d definitely pick that one if I happened to win! Again, congratulations my dear ❀️
