Back to Blogging + February Giveaway!!

Exams are finally over!!!

Well, mine at least! My sister still has to write one exam tomorrow and I'm sure a bunch of you guys still have exams to come, too, but for now I'm home free which means I'm back on the blogosphere! *cheers*

I just wanted to THANK YOU SO MUCH again for putting up with my hectic schedule! All of your words of encouragement and overall awesomeness just made me more eager to do good so I could come back.

To celebrate that, I thought it would be cool to have a new monthly giveaway thing where each month, one lucky follower will get his/her choice of a book released during that month. At the end of it, I'll draw one winner. How does that sound? :)

The Rules:
  1. There will be one winner. 
  2. Giveaway ends on March 1, 2012 @ 11:59 p.m.
  3. Be a follower (through GFC or RSS).
  4. Be 13 or older.
  5. Live anywhere that The Book Depository ships to (which is basically everywhere!)
  6. Fill out the form.
The Prize: 

One winner will get to choose any ONE book from the list of anticipated near-February releases below! Or if you would like another book that releases around this time instead, I could definitely substitute that in as long as it's under $20 (USD). :)

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Partials by Dan Wells
The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker

Just fill out the form below:

Thanks again for everything, you guys! I'm really happy to be back! :)
