May Release Giveaway!!

I'm back! My camping trip was a ton of fun (albeit a little sleep-depriving, but you know how these things go...), and I just wanted to thank all of you for wishing me the best and being patient with my busy schedule! You guys are awesome, you know that?

And I just realized that I forgot to post this month's release giveaway, so here it is! The rules are the same as they are every month, but I've reposted them below, just in case. :)

The Rules:
  1. There will be one winner. 
  2. Giveaway ends on June 1, 2012 @ 12:01 a.m.

  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 of his/her choice from the list of anticipated near-May releases below. And trust me, there are A LOT of amazing ones this month! But 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). :)

And that's everything for today! I'll start being post-crazy, comment-crazy, and all around fun-crazy as of right now. (I have a lot to catch up on haha...) Thanks again for the sweet camping wishes and your overall awesomeness! Now that the showering rain of April has gone, I'm ready for some May flowers! ♥ ;)


P.S. Does anybody know how to reply to comments so they go straight to a person's email address? (Not just on the post because no one really sees it.) Because I have no idea how, and there are so many times when I get giggle-worthy comments I'd love to  reply to but don't know how! Thanks so much! :)


  1. Awwww Mimi, thank you so much for the giveaway! <3 And I'm sorry, I don't really know how to reply to comments so they go straight to a person's email too :( And yes! Replying on the post is not good enough because some people just forget about their comments :( I hope someone can help you, Mimi!

    Hope you have an awesome day! <3 ;)

  2. EEEK! Thank you so much for this giveaway hun! <3 AMAZING books up for grabs here. *licks lips* I just want it allllll bahahahahaha.

    Hmmm...I'm not too sure! I know that on Wordpress people can 'subscribe to comments via email' as they comment on a post, but I'm not sure how you can ensure that your comments go to each commenter's email. :( SORRY HUN. *hugs you* I'll come back to check for any comments you make though!

  3. Yay, you're back!!!! I missed your posts but I hope you had loads of fun on your camping trip :) Thank you for the giveaway, all the books look fab!!!! You are so generous with all these monthly giveaways, Mimi, stop spoiling us (Just kidding!)

  4. Thank you for the Giveaway Mimi! All of these books sound absolutely fantastic, but Of Poseidon has me sold on the excitement scale. May is definitely a great month full of wonderful releases - I wish I could read faster! :)

    Welcome home, glad you had fun camping! <3<3<3

  5. I think the way you reply to the comments through email is just that--you reply to the email sent notifying you of the comment! I have no clue, but I don't see why not! When people have replied to my comments, that's what it seemed like.

    Hope you can figure it out! And thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Hey Mimi so glad you had an awesome time camping! We've had awful weather over here, it's raining all the time, can't wait until it brightens up and then I can finally read outside! Sorry I have no clue about the comment being sent to someone's email address I think it depends on how they comment as sometimes it comes up as so you can't reply back to them? I hope I'm making sense and not just yammering on! Thanks for the giveaway my lovely! :)

  7. So glad you had a good time camping! Thanks so much for the giveaway Mimi!! :)

  8. I'm glad you had a fun camping trip, Mimi! And thanks so much for the giveaway! May is definitely an amazing month for books :D I'm not sure of how to reply to comments in such a way that it gets sent to their email. I guess they have to enable that option for that to happen but I dunno! I get why that would be great. By the time I get around t replying to comments I'm sure everyone else would've moved on and not checked back anyway. Let me know if you find a way :) Have an awesome week! :)

  9. I think May has some of the best releases this year! Thanks for another great giveaway. I'm glad to hear you had fun at your camping trip Mimi! Welcome back. :)

  10. YAY MIMI! I missed you! Glad you had a blast camping, but it's nice to have you back:) And thank you for the awesome giveaway, May is an amazing book month!

    Regarding the comments - do you have yours set up so you get an email notification? If so, I usually just respond to that email and it goes directly to them. Sometimes a lot of comments will appear in the same notification (at least with gmail), so then I just create a new email and send my response. Hope that helps!

  11. Mimi! So glad that you're back and you had such a great time. Although you might want to try and catch you a nap now that you're back home. I wish I could help with the comments thing but I'm unfamiliar as to how blogger comments are set up to work.

    Also, just wanted to say thanks for the great giveaway. Those are some awesome choices you listed.

  12. Wow! You come back in a big way. Glad you had fun, hope you are resting up. I miss your bubbly cute comments while you are gone. Truly, your comments make my day!

  13. Thanks so much! Hope you had an awesome time:)

    I don't have a blog so I can't help:(

  14. I agree with above regarding comments, but make sure that an email comes up not no-reply@blogger or something similar. Some people don't have their profiles linked to email, and the commenter won't get your email and you waste your time. But a lot of people are linked up. :)
    Welcome back and thanks for giveaway

  15. Thanks for the giveaway, Mimi. If you set up your blogger account to get email notification, you can easily respond to people via email (as long as they've linked to an email address). Let me know if you need help.

  16. I have not been camping in so long, but I love going and getting away from everything.
    Sorry, no idea about the email link to the comments.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  17. thank you thank you mimi
    if i would win / it will be hard to choose lol

  18. thanks you a lot for this giveaway. At the moment i have a probelm with the rafflecopter i can't enter with my email ( iclick but the box to put name and email doesn't appear) i've tried to refesh several time but no result. i hope it will be better another day

    all the best

  19. Thanks for the giveaway! There are soooooooooo many fabulous May releases!!! Clearly the book world is celebrating my birthday! LOL Since my B-Day is May 15th!

    About the comments...I wish I knew!!! I reply to all my review comments and I'm not sure if people are checking back. :-( I know disqus comments gives you a notice so I've been thinking about using disqus on my blog. Every once in a while I get a reply email from blogger but not sure how it happens! I know with wordpress the reply comes to my email.

  20. Yay!!! So glad you're back babe! Hope you had fun!!

  21. Hey Mimi! Thanks for this giveaway. And. Welcome back! I'm glad you enjoyed your camping! :D

    Ohh, sorry. Don't know about comments. Hope you'll figure it out soon! :)

  22. welcome back mimi,, i think you have fun your camping...(i never going camping trip,,,poor for me)
    iam so sorry, i cant help you coz i dont know to how to reply to comments so they go straight to a person's email.

    thanks for the giveaway,,

  23. Mimi!!!! I can breathe again! :)

    Hope you had a great time, and wow! What a way to come back. Thanks again for another fantastic giveaway.

  24. So glad you had a great time! Welcome back!
    Looks like the comment question was answered cause I was gonna say what Jenny said.

    Thanks for the great giveaway! Its definitely an epic release month!

  25. Glad you had fun, that you're back safe. About replying to comments, Debz and A Canadian Girl got it right. Wishing you a great rest of the week.

  26. I tried the commenting thing suggested and a lot of the people had the thing come up but one person didn't. But that means I still have to reply on my blog and also in the email? LOL I was hoping I could reply on the blog and it automatically would email the person but I think that is only wordpress? Blogger really should make things more commenter friendly!

  27. Thanks for this fantastic giveaway Mimi! I honestly don't know how to do that with blogger, so that's why I use Disqus...unless that doesn't work either. Have you been getting my replies to all your wonderful comments?? :O I sure hope so... If not, please let me know. Because I definitely want you all to...the reason I signed up with Disqus!! Maybe Intense Debater will have more?

    (Oh, and you can reply to this...I'll come back and check, promise!!)

    Anywho...i hope this is somewhat helpful. Love the giveaway darling! :D <3

  28. Thank you for the awesome giveaway, Mimi! <3 Certainly May is one of the best months this year when it comes to releases. I mean, really! With all those sequels, and standalones and new series coming up...

    I'm so glad you're back! It's great to hear you had fun. And yeah, little sleep -- that always happens! LOL

    Sadly I don't know anything about comment-reply things... I've seen comment reply notifications, but I think that was on Wordpress. On Disqus it's nice because it tells you when someone's replied to your comment.

    I hope you have a wonderful day, Mimi! <3 Again, thanks for the giveaway :)

  29. thank you so much mimi for this amazing giveaway! I'm sorry for the commects stuff I don't know either...

  30. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your camping trip, Mimi! <3 Me and my clean-freak tendency are not the best company for camping trip, but camping trip always feels nice! It somehow rejuvenates my soul LOL! x)

    So sorry doll, I have no idea about the comment-reply things in Blogger, but I will try to google it and find some way to solve this problem! I would love to have it in my blog too, so people can see my reply. :)

    Thanks for the fantastic monthly giveaway, Mimi! Finger crossed. <3
