Well, I promised it, and now, I am finally getting my act together and doing it… that’s right, my 1K/BEA giveaway!! Phase one is already underway on Twitter, and you can find it right here! Now, get ready for Phase 2!!!
There are going to be TWO giveaways with FOUR total winners. The first one will be US Only, because shipping. The second will be International, because I love you guys too much not to 😉
AND because I am bored with the usual giveaway shenanigans, we’re going to play a GAME. Don’t worry, you don’t have to play the game, but if you do, and get the answer right, you get a boatload of entries so… yeah. Plus, it’s fun! So first, the game, since you will need it if you want to play.
THE GAME RULES:
Find the junk. It’s all numerical, so add up the numbers. I enlisted a few friends to help, so you may be finding answers on their sites! (Don’t worry, I made it easy!) Enter the number in the Rafflecopter. Easy peasy! I will leave hints in spoiler tags!
1. How many books am I trying to read in 2015? View Spoiler »Hint: Look at the bottom of the page, where my Goodreads challenge just may tell you 😉 « Hide Spoiler
2. How many stars did Amber, whose Twitter face looks a lot like the cover of Free to Fall give to said Free to Fall? View Spoiler »You’d probably find that kind of thing right here, in her review!/ « Hide Spoiler
3. How many big old pages is Queen of Shadows going to be? View Spoiler »You should probably use the Goodreads link and the US hardcover edition that I led you to 😉 « Hide Spoiler

**I usually don’t do mandatory entries, BUT this is a big thank you for all those who follow so… I kind of had to. It didn’t seem fair otherwise!**
The Lovely U.S. Giveaway!
Three winners pick 2 books each, and some swag- the first winner gets the tote too!
The International ONLY Giveaway!
One winner receives ANY book (as long as TBD ships!) from my BEA haul- it can be a pre order, of course! And hell, I will even add Truthwitch to the options- it isn’t your fault that my Uber was late 😉
OMG! This is the coolest giveaway game I’ve seen! 🙂
Aw thank you!! And thanks for helping with it 🙂
Oh my god you tested my math skills hope i got it right
Hahha I am sure you did- and don’t worry, I won’t be too strict, because I also hate math and am quite terrible at it- who knows, I could get it wrong myself 😉
I AM JUST FREAKING GLAD THAT THE QUESTION “HOW MANY TIMES DID VAL PUSH HER DOG DOWN THE STAIRS?” IS NOT HERE.
I will be doing this later. AND OH JUST USE MY AGE HUH? 😛 Bleh.
It SHOULD have been on here. Just saying.
Obviously it should have been. Sadly, Val provided no link to her puptastrophe, so I was unable to include it.
Not gonna lie, this was like the MOST FUN giveaway I’ve ever joined. There was also the side effect of finding like so many wonderful blogs in the game, so I ended up spending such a long time just clicking around. Also my maths is sincerely bad, so I hope I managed to add it up right. (I’m now thinking of all the awkward numbers I have hidden around my site and just glad that you chose a relatively innocuous and also incredibly helpful one.) Loads of fun, thanks so much for the giveaway, and CONGRATULATIONS ON 1K!
Aww THANK YOU!! I am so glad you found blogs too! That makes me extra happy 🙂 And don’t worry about the math, I am not good at math, so I won’t be hyper-critical 😉 You are quite welcome, thanks again, and thanks for helping with the game 😀
WOOHOO, congrats on 1k Bloglovin followers, Shannon! You totally deserve 100000000 more for your fabulousness. <3
Aww thank you!! You are too sweet <3 <3
Loved the game for the giveaway – totally made me break out excel to add it up so I wouldn’t mess it up (so now I really hope I got the answer right lol!)
Hahha that is too funny! I promise, I won’t deduct for small math errors 😉 I love that you used excel! I will probably have to because I, um, don;t know the answer yet myself!
Thank you for the international giveaway <3
Aw you’re quite welcome!!
This giveaway was a lot of fun. I loved adding up all the points. I hope I got it right…

Yay for 1000 followers! And I loved playing the game – what a fun way to do a giveaway!
