Mystery Book!



Hello there children! So, it was my birthday a week ago (or thereabouts) and I thought ‘Well, I have some money lying around that I’m not using, so let’s host a giveaway and draw in lots of new followers’. So yep, birthday/70 followers giveaway! Woo!

Okay, rules thingos:

  1. You must be following me. Please. I’ll check. Probably. No, I will check.
  2. This will be an international giveaway thanks to the Book Depository. Please check if they ship to your country before entering, I’d hate to get your hopes up just to shatter them.
  3. There will be two winners that will be chosen via random number generator. Winners will be contacted via Ask and will have 48 hours to respond before I choose a new winner. Please have your inboxes open
  4. Reblogs and Likes both count so spam your followers reblog/like as many times as you like.
  5. This giveaway will end on the 9th of October! So that gives you something like 2 weeks to get in your entries!
  6. The two winners can choose any book/books up to the value of AU$25 from the Book Depository

Also, huge thank you to tea-books-lover for making the banner for me!

Pirates! by Celia Rees

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder

We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

Pure by Julianna Baggott

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J K Rowling

Now! If you were to win, and wanted another book in a series listed above, you may choose to do so. Example, if you wanted book 2 of Harry Potter, etc.

I’ve just finished reading Pandora Jones: Deception and wow, what an incredible read. It was thrilling, exciting and funny throughout and I couldn’t put it down until I’d read the final page. I loved the first book, but I definitely enjoyed this one more. I can’t wait to see what happens next and I do hope that more people get the opportunity to discover this amazing series!
