ERMAGHERD I HAVE 500 FOLLOWERS (550+ now technically). I never thought this would happen honestly. 500 is such a big number. So many eyes potentially reading this post…

Anyway, such a big unexpected number of followers needs celebrating! I need something to keep you all here :P So obviously a giveaway is in order.

Giveaway Details:

  • Prize: a book of choice (or total <$25 Australian Dollars) from the book depository as long as they ship to you
  • The will be one winner(I am a poor uni student) selected via random number generator who I will contact via ask box (so make sure yours is open)
  • Because I’m using the book depository this giveaway is international!
  • Must be following me (it is a celebration of this book cult I am growing. If you want to win you obviously have to join the fun)
  • 1 like or reblog = 1 entry
  • Like and reblog this post as many times as you want. But please, no giveaway blogs. They’re no fun.
  • Giveaway ends 1st of August at 12am… ish (whenever I check the notes & select a winner really). Winner will be contacted ASAP after.
  • If you have any more questions feel free to send me an ask :) (though be aware I might not have internet access from the 30th of June — 12th of July)

Good luck and happy reading!

Only two days left! 


As promised, here is my feels-themed giveaway! The books/series above all have one thing in common - they made me feel something. That doesn’t necessarily mean I cried but they definitely inspired some kind of emotional response in my robot-like self. They’re also some of my favourite books. Hopefully there’s a decent enough selection for you to choose from.

5 people will be sent a book of their choice from the selection above if they’re randomly selected as winners.

Please read the following:

  • To enter, like and/or reblog this post
  • You may reblog the post as many times as you like but don’t annoy your followers too much with it
  • I would prefer if you were following me, since this giveaway is a ‘thank you’ to my followers
  • This giveaway is international, as I am purchasing books via Book Depository and they have free delivery for the majority of the world. Double check that your country is included here
  • Your inbox MUST be open. I won’t be contacting anyone via fan mail
  • Winners may also choose a sequel to the books pictured above if it’s part of a series
  • Winners may choose which edition of the book they want, so long as it is paperback and under $15 (AU). The only exception is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is over $20 and hardback. I’ll only be buying this for one person (if they want it) so I have enough for the other books, sorry! I just love it so much and want to be able to share it with at least one person, even if it’s expensive
  • One of the books, Alexander Altmann A01567 is only available as a prize for Australians, as it is unavailable on Book Depository. If Aussies would like this book, I will order it for you from Bookworld
  • If you’re not sure which book you’d like, I’d be happy to tell you more about them and help you pick one that suits your tastes
  • No giveaway blogs
  • If you’re uncomfortable giving me your address, don’t be. I won’t be saving it or giving it out elsewhere or anything
  • The giveaway ends August 1st 12PM AEST
  • Winners will be selected using a random number generator and have 48 hours to get back to me. I’m quite lenient on that but I would prefer if people replied ASAP so I can be organised
  • If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me

Good luck and happy reading, word shakers!
