I can barely believe that my blog made it this far. I reached 1K followers a while back – so sorry I didn’t get my giveaway up then, but I figured combining it to have one giant giveaway would be more fun! – and now my blog.. turned.. 1 year old TODAY! Like, that feels huge. I never thought I’d stick around this long, but this community is amazing and becoming a part of it is one of the best things that’s happened to me.

I met so many amazing people this last year – no, I’m not going to name you. Today is about me and my blog, haha! – and I’m so grateful for that. You all totally messed up my TBR and… well, that is a love / hate-relationship since I have no clue how I’m ever going to read them all. Hands up for those who’re fighting the same battle.

I started setting up this giveaway back when I reached my 1K followers, which means there are a ton of prizes to win. That equals more chance of winning something, people! If that doesn’t motivate you to participate, I don’t know what will! Or maybe I do…

Let’s take a look at those prizes!

First up, I have a signed copy of The Monster of Selkirk: The Duality of Nature by C.E. Clayton. This was one of my favorite reads in 2017. I actually won a copy of this book back when I just started out my blog, so what better way to celebrate than share the first ever book I won with you guys?!

The Duality of Nature (The Monster of Selkirk #1)Monsters come in many forms, and not everyone knows a monster when they see one. After three hundred years of monstrous, feral elves plaguing the island nation of Selkirk, everyone believes they know what a monster is. Humans have learned to live with their savage neighbors, enacting a Clearing every four years to push the elves back from their borders. The system has worked for centuries, until after one such purge, a babe was found in the forest.
As Tallis grows, she discovers she isn’t like everyone else. There is something a little different that makes people leery in her presence, and she only ever makes a handful of friends.
But when the elves gather their forces and emerge from the forests literally hissing Tallis’s name like a battle mantra, making friends is the least of her troubles. Tallis and her companions find themselves on an unwilling journey to not only clear her name, but to stop the elves from ravaging her homeland.

Another signed copy I’m giving away is Unboxed by Non Pratt! I bought this one in Edinburgh, read it and loved it, but I want to pass it along because it’s a beautiful story worth sharing.

Unboxed is about four teenagers who come together after several months apart. In previous years, they had put together a time capsule about their best summer with a friend who was dying. Now that their friend has passed, they reunite to open the box.

The last “big” book I’m unhauling is… a signed copy of The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert! I actually have two copies of this one, but I like the regular one more, so I’m seriously saying goodbye to my signed one. Imagine that!

The Hazel WoodSeventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the strange bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate – the Hazel Wood – Alice learns how bad her luck can really get. Her mother is stolen away – by a figure who claims to come from the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: STAY AWAY FROM THE HAZEL WOOD. 
To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began . . .

The next prizes are books that I’m unhauling – some of them have been read once, though. At first I was thinking of selling them but, honestly, I know you guys would be way happy to have more chance at winning something! Here’s an overview of the books that are up for grabs:

Before She Ignites (Fallen Isles Trilogy #1)Odd & TrueThe Last Namsara (Iskari, #1)The Novice (Summoner, #1)Nerve

Are you excited yet? No? Okay! There’s one more thing!

A box of goodies! There are some things in there that I bought myself, especially for this giveaway. Other things are items that were in subscription boxes that I think would make someone else more happy than it did me. A bunch of bookmarks and samples; stuff like that. I hope someone will be happy with it!

Terms & Conditions:
° Must be 18, 18+ or have permission of your parents to give me your address should you win something. Your address will only be used to send your prize; nothing more, nothing less.
° This is an international giveaway, although I’m holding rights to decide whether or not to pick another winner should all winners be far, far away from me in order to keep shipping costs under control. [I wish I was rich, but I’m not..]
