Kat's Super Awesome Birthday Giveaway!


So, guess what? Next Saturday -- February 16th -- is my birthday, and I'll be turning *gasp!* 31. :)

In celebration of that, and the fact that one of the most exciting things I'm doing is going to Chapters with Jay, I've decided to do a birthday giveaway where you'll have a chance to win some new books, too. Read on for all the details!

What's Up For Grabs?:

I normally do giveaways where one winner gets one book, but this time my winner is going to get TWO books from me--one from my Wish List or Recommended List, and one that is a surprise from a list of fthree you guys are going to leave me in the comments. Just so we're clear:

Birthday Wishes Prize Pack:

-- ONE book from my Recommended OR Wished For lists (below).

-- ONE book of the winner's choice, from the list of 3 books I'll have you leaving in the comments. (I want it to be something you WANT, but I also want it to be a SURPRISE.)

In short: someone's about to get two books sent to them from me via The Book Depository.


My Lists: 

Kat Recommends...















Kat's Wish List: 













Notes:

* If I have listed an author or series, I am equally happy to send you any book in that series or by that author. I realize different people are at different points in stuff like that.

* If a book has a sequel releasing in the near future, or has not been released yet, I am totally happy to do a pre-order for you.

With 27 different things shown here, *most* of which are from different series, I hope I've included something to suit every taste.


How To Enter: 

To actually enter my giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment with your e-mail and the list of three books I would be choosing between if you win. (You can change these if I e-mail you as the winner, since this contest is running long and I realize you may already have them.) This is worth +1 entries. 

Bonus Entries: 

+1: Tell me which of my wishlist books YOU think should be at the top of my list. 

+1 Tweet about the giveaway. (Make sure to link your tweet url. This is a One Time Entry.) 

+1 Follow my blog via GFC

+1 Follow me ( @ Katallina ) via Twitter. 

+1 Comment on one of my reviews. (Tell me which you commented on.) 

+2 Comment on Shopaholic Sunday Birthday Edition #1 (This will go up on February 17th.) 

+2 Comment on Shopaholic Sunday Birthday Edition #2 (This will go up on February 24th.) 

Note: I'm sorry if those last two are annoying, but I'm excited about them. One will be gifts from my family purchased via Amazon.ca and the other will have Jay as a guest since we'll record it during his visit. So dropping by, especially for that, will mean a lot.) 

TOTAL ENTRIES: 10


Technical Stuff:

This giveaway will end on March 4th at 12:01 A.M. EST. 

This giveaway is open to all, provided The Book Depository will ship to you.

The winner will have 72 hours to respond to the e-mail I send them. If they do not respond, a new winner will be selected. 

Thanks for taking the time to check out my Super Awesome Birthday Giveaway. Good luck everybody!

  12. I have a confession: I can’t remember whether I wished you happy birthday on Facebook or not. I meant to…I clicked on your name, but I can’t for the life of me remember if I actually did it. These pain meds are seriously messing with my brain. So if I didn’t, please forgive me (you can slap my wrist for being a bad friend lol), and please accept my belated birthday wishes!

    My wishlist choices:
    Starling by Lesley Livingston
    Something Like Normal by Trish Doller
    Grave Mercy by Robin Lefevers

    +1: Tell me which of my wishlist books YOU think should be at the top of my list.
    If I could order you to read a book RIGHT NOW it would be Through the Ever Night…or My Life Next Door. They were both incredible.
