International Giveaway: One-Year-Blogoversary


Today's the day - I've been officially blogging for a year now and it's a little bit hard to believe. When I started my blog, I don't think I've ever expected to come this far and now that I'm here, I cannot imagine ever giving up this blog and, most importantly, the wonderful people I've encountered and the great experiences I've made thanks to Fictional Distraction.

I want to thank every single one of you, who has read my posts, maybe even commented on them. Thanks to the amazing people who gave me book recommendations and who shared their love for books with me. I don't want to miss knowing you and I couldn't be happier that I've met you, even if it's "only" virtually! Thanks to the authors and publishers that want me to read their books and therefore make me believe that my reviews aren't unimportant.

I already have another blogoversary-themed post online: a special edition of my weekly feature "Cover Comparisons". To vote for your favorite German cover of these that I used during the last year, go here.

To celebrate this day, to show my gratitude for your support and to start with lots of motivation and book-love into Fictional Distraction's second year, I have a giveaway for you. This giveaway will have two winners and each of them can choose one book from a selection. 


The first winner can choose one book of my following favorites:




The second winner can choose one of these recent or upcoming releases:



RULES

This giveaway is open internationally. If the winner lives somewhere where TBD does not ship to, I will have the book sent to my place and then send it off myself. But once I've ordered the book from TBD (either to my address or the winner's address), I cannot be held responsible for what happens with it. The prize can either be a hardback or a paperback, which can vary because of availability and price.

If one of the books is part of a series, the winner may choose another book of that series as long as it either has been already released or will be released until the end of June 2012.

To enter, you have to be at least 13 years old. By entering this giveaway and filling out the Rafflecopter form, you are confirming that you are at least 13 years old.

To enter, you have to follow Fictional Distraction either via GFC, RSS, e-mail, Networked Blogs or Linky Followers.

This giveaway ends on May 27th, 2012 midnight EST. The winners will be notified via e-mail and each winner has 48 hours to respond until a new winner will be picked.

You can only enter this giveaway by filling in the Rafflecopter form. While comments are very appreciated, they do not count as giveaway entries. Please don't leave any personal information (e.g. your e-mail-address) in the comment section.
