International "I'm going to be busy next month" Giveaway


With two side jobs (= 4 or 5 days of work per week) and a criminal law paper coming up next month, I will be one very busy blogger and am afraid that I might not get around to read a lot. And to make up for my possible absence (mostly comment-wise, because I'll definitely try to keep the blog updated as much as possible), I decided that it is time for another giveaway.


One winner will get to choose one of the following books:





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 October 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. If you're under 18, you have to have your parents' consent to give me your mailing address in case you win.

To enter, you have to follow Fictional Distraction via GFC.

This giveaway ends on September 30th, 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. Please don't leave any personal information (e.g. your e-mail-address) in the comment section.

  4. You'll be a very busy girl, Carina! I hope everything goes well with your paper! As to international delivery, I suggest to use Fishpond.com if TBD doesn't ship somewhere. They deliver everywhere, postage is free, and book will cost you either the same money or 1-2 euros more. I've used them plenty of times.

    I'd love to read The Raven Boys or new Laini Taylor - both books are very high on my wishlist :)

    Hugs and thank you for a gorgeous giveaway!

  10. I have like 100 books on my e-reader that I want to read, but... it's not like I don't have time, it's my attention span of a gold fish. I can't focus on anything for more than one hour or I fret. :(
    As for paperback, I have The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to read.

    And my favorite read in 2012... a tie between Anna and the French Kiss and My Life Next Door, I think. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. My TBR list on my reader is out of control at the moment but I just went back to Law School so everything is on hold at the moment! I did pre-order a copy of Onyx by JL Armentrout though and I really want to get to it when I finally have a spare moment.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think my TBR shelf is now taking up nearly two shelves, but that's what happens when you're secretly a book squirrel. Out of all of the titles, I think I'm dying to read Soulbound: The Legacy of Tril by Heather Brewer or Of Poseidon by Anna Banks most. Thank you for the giveaway, and I totally know how you feel about not having enough time!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have WAY too many books on my e-reader, and sadly most of them are from Netgalley. I just forget what I have sometimes and then end going on to another book. But there are more than enough books that I want to read from Netgalley that I just haven't ended up getting to :P Oh, and my shelves are completely full too, but at least I can see most of those. Thanks for the giveaway!! I'm starting college in a month and I'm going to have the same issue as you with not enough time.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've recently discovered Netgalley and went a bit overboard... so books I'm putting aside at the moment to read the galleys are The Night Circus, Dearly Departed (finally got it and now I can't read it >.<), Easy (Tammara Webber), Exiled, and quite a few books by indie authors that I'd actually like to check out soon.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
