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
- 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!
Almost 800. I’m not quite there yet but I’m closer to 800 books than 700. :) The most recent photos are here
There’s a few shelves at the top/bottom missing because it’s extremely difficult to get them all in one photo and my chair hides a couple of shelves. If anyone wants close-ups on a particular shelf/section or for me to explain how it’s all organised, let me know!
July’s huge TBR!
Let’s see if I can do this!
Follow Friday is a weekly feature on my blog, where I’ll promote a randomly selected book blog that I’m following. I strongly encourage that you follow them if you want more bookishness on your dash!
This week’s featured blog is.. *drum roll* bookishbee

If you end up in Sydney we’ll take you out book shopping in the city! Hold off all buying until then! :D
Yay! I will try my best. :D
Think I just proved to myself for the gazillionth time that I cannot enter a bookstore without leaving with books. Been wanting to read Flora and Ulysses and The End Games for a while now. Picked up Let’s Get Lost and Masquerade because thebooker made them look like fun reads.
Yay! I hope you like them. :)
The book haul I just posted will be my last one for a while. I know, we’ve been here before many times. I do a rambly post about my good intentions to stop buying so many books, you guys laugh at me, I do well for about 3 days and then we repeat it again in a few months. I’m determined this time.
My main two reasons:
Exclusions to the “ban”:
I am really going to need your help this time more than ever. Yell at me if I post a book haul that’s not justifiable and please don’t make books sound so amazing that I need to buy them right away. Just make them sound good enough so I can add them to my wishlist, be excited but not buy them.
bookphile: The bookstore didn’t have The Girl of Fire and Thorns so I’m not able to read it and take over the world just yet. :( It’s always so heartbreaking when you can’t find the first book in a series.
