Book Giveaway



I mentioned awhile back that I would be having a giveaway as a thank you for all the great books I have been lucky to have won the past couple months. The Book Giveaway Carnival just happened to be going on this week as well so I thought I would make the giveaway a part of it.

So, here are all the details you will need:


The prizes: I have three books that I will be giving away. A hardcover copy of The Wonder Spot by Melissa Banks, a paperback copy of The Christmas Tree by Julie Salamon, and a gently read paperback of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicholson by Louise Rennison.





The deal: Just leave me a comment, say hello. Of course, I wouldn't mind some book recommendations. :) Also, let me know which book(s) you are interested in. Three books, three chances to win!

The timeline: You have until midnight (CST) on Friday, November 7th to enter. I will announce the winners that weekend. I will be randomly picking three winners from my comments for all three of the books.

Contest closed. Winners announced here.

*** Check back during the week, there just may be a surprise giveaway or two thrown in. :)

Good Luck!

And don't forget to go and check out all the other contests going on for the Carnival this week.

  1. I've been so bad about reading lately. I've only finished one Pratchett and listened to some of Nicholas Nickelby (which, in my defense, is 33 hours). I'm starting to feel guilty about it. Must get back into the habit.

    (randomly, I'm commenting just to let you know that I'm reading your blog, but you can leave me out of the giveaway(postage being ridiculous and I never have giveaways myself))

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicholson by Louise Rennison sounds really cute. I think my cousin would like that one. As far as book recommendations, the entire "Twilight Series" by Stephenie Meyer is fabulous! Also, Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgins was funny, romantic, and endearing. :)

    My most recent fave reads have been The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, the Scott Westerfeld Uglies series, ANYTHING by John Green (I love love love him) and I am really into Stephanie Meyer's The Host (better than Twilight I think) :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ya know? I wouldn't mind winning any of the 3 books. I'm not picky, and i'm looking for some other books outside my usual readings.

    Ok, as far as book recommendations go, if you're looking for something funny and dark, try Christopher Moore. His writings just leave you laughing! You can try Practical Demon-Keeping or The Stupidest Angel. They are excellent!
