To celebrate 1K followers (200 late because of uni and moving), I’m hosting another giveaway!  I’m hosting it with The Book Depository because it worked perfectly last time!  I picked out the first books I saw on my dashboard because if you reblog it, then you like it or want it, and this is a thank you to all of you!

The books to choose from: 

Pride and Prejudice, Divergent, Looking for Alaska, A Great and Terrible Beauty, If I Stay, The Sky is Everywhere, Lola and the Boy Next Door, This Is What Happy Looks Like, and The Final Empire

Rules: 

  • Open internationally 
  • Because this is a giveaway for my followers, you must be following me (I will check!)
  • You can like or reblog this as much as you want, but don’t spam your own wonderful followers with it :)
  • No giveaway blogs please!
  • There is just one winner
  • The winner has to be comfortable with giving me their address (I can’t send you the books otherwise!)
  • If the winner doesn’t reply in 24 hours, I’ll pick another winner
  • You can pick hardcover or paperback, and whichever edition you want as long as it’s under $20 (because some covers are just prettier than others or look nicer on different people’s bookshelves)
  • Ends on 31 July! (Because it’s Harry’s birthday I don’t know haha)

Good luck and thank you all for being lovely human beings!

Edit: Winner is chosen by a random generator!
