Spoilers Blogoversary and the end of the year coming - Time for a Book Giveaway

Like the post title says, Spoilers and Nuts' Spoilers blogoversary is approaching. And there is also the end of the year and all the festivities associated with it, so there is yet more reasons to celebrate. And, although I'm still not sure I'll meet the 75 books mark I proposed myself to reach, I'll get very close to that.

If only I could find a way to celebrate it all together..... Oh wait, I can! Let's host a giveaway!

So here are the rules for the first giveaway I ever hosted. Mmmm, let's call it Spoilers and Nuts giveaway, and make things really complicated for people to enter.

Not really, but I do ask for some things.

First, there will be 3 winners - because I'm celebrating 3 things, and 1 book for each winner.
Second, the book has to be one of the books I've read this year. (there is a list at the end of the post)
Third, you have to make a book recommendation to me. You don't need to lose much sleep over it, just something you think I'll like, or something you read and loved. Because I really like recommendations.

And that's it. Everything else is optional. You get extra entries for being a follower and for spreading the word.

To enter fill the form below. Or here.

Oh, and I almost forgot. This contest is international and ends on December 10th.

This giveaway is over!

  1. Yeash that’s a lotta books, I might be back for that Hitchhiker’s guide when I have the time to spare.

    Wouldn’t worry about reaching the 75 books goal, 65+ novels a year is still very impressive. Some people don’t read that many their entire lives!

    I'm not too worried about the goal. For a short while I was actually stressing a bit about it, but then I realized it was taking the joy out of reading. So now I'm just really trying to figure out how many books I read in a year.

  3. Congrats on your upcoming blogoversary!! Wishing you many more happy years of blogging :)

    Good luck with reaching your goal! And thanks for the awesome giveaway.
