6 Month Blogoversary Giveaway!

Well, my friends, it's been six months! Six amazing months of blogging, reading, and of course, meeting and befriending many amazing blogging friends and authors whose friendships I will always cherish. When I first starting this blog, I just did it to test out what having a book blog would be like, after reading many book blogs prior to the creation of this blog for months. At first it was a bit overwhelming, but then when I received my first comment, I remember how happy I was. That was my motivation enough to keep blogging. The fact that my blog now has over 200 followers is just so amazing, and I know I've said this many times before, but I really cannot express my gratitude enough. So, to my followers, readers, and the amazing friends I made when blogging, thank you. For everything throughout the past six months. Now, to celebrate this six month milestone, I'm going to host three different giveaways. Each giveaway will comprise of five books, an assortment of both ARCs and published novels, depending on the theme of the giveaway. What themes, you ask? Well, each giveaway has its own theme, but each theme is kind of a surprise. Well, it will be a surprise for about fifteen more seconds, because all of the themes are below, and if you're an inquiring mind you'll probably check the themes out when you finish reading this sentence, like I would. One winner will be chosen for each giveaway, and you may enter all three giveaways if you'd like (but you may not win more than one giveaway). Good luck! (Note: If there is a star next to a book's title, that means that the book is published after this giveaway ends, and I do not have any ARCs to give away, therefore a copy of that book will be pre-ordered to you via The Book Depository.) 

Giveaway #1

Theme: 2012 Favorites (so far)

*rubs hands together* This is a giveaway I'm happy to host, that way I can hopefully share my immense love for these five novels on to one winner. Although it was a bit difficult to only choose five of my favorite reads this year, I managed to end up with... (in no particular order)

     
 

(other notable novels: What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang, Crewel by Gennifer Albin, Every Day by David Levithan, Lucid by Adrienne Stoltz and Ron Bass)





Giveaway #2

Highly Anticipated Books of 2013

Now this one was extremely difficult for me to choose books for as well, because 2013 is a pretty amazing year for YA, wouldn't you say? However, I somehow managed to narrow down the many amazing books of 2013 into a list of five, comprised of... (once again, in no particular order)

Giveaway #3

Theme: Favorite Covers of 2012

Argh! Another tough decision! We all know there have been lots of gorgeous covers in the YA genre this year, which is why it was difficult for me to choose some of my favorite covers of 2012, while avoiding duplicating books already used for my 6 Month Blogoversary Giveaway so far. But, after going through my shelf on Goodreads dedicated to covers I love, I broke this giveaway down to... (in no particular order, again)

  2. Please: do not comment on any of my blog posts via a mobile device. I use IntenseDebate for comments and when someone comments on my blog via a mobile device it deletes all of my comments. Thanks in advance.

  3. Especially for giveaways it's crucial to know who comments or not so if they get points for commenting, I don't know whether or not they actually commented.

  10. Wow six months. And such a great giveaway. I read This is Not a Test and it felt like something was missing. But considering I have DNFed a lot of the books I have tried to read lately I think the problem lies with me. I might try reading it once again. Thanks for this great giveaway.

  50. I've been noticing your reviews all over Goodreads, Blythe, and decided to check out your blog. Looks like I did at a fortuitous time because these giveaways are awesome!

    I particularly like the cover for Lucid. It's sorta mindbending and you have to stare at it for a while to appreciate, which sounds like the effect of the book according to reviews I've read!
