It's a Manic Monday: It's MY Birthday Giveaway!!!

Hellooooo there guys!!

I might be a lil too happy for it being a Monday BUT it's MY birthday!! And even if I'm getting rather old already! (I can't believe I'm turning 35!!, I wish I could have got stuck at 28, I loved being 28) it's a day to celebrate and to do whatever the heck I want!






And because of that, I'm gonna be hosting a giveaway that will last the whole week here in my blog and another one in my Twitter!




As an unrepentant bookwyrm there's no better way to celebrate my birthday than with books (and of course cupcakes!!). I wish I had a bit more time to have organized a lil bit more of a celebration of my birthday, but with my regular work and all the work that is still to be done in my apartment... I just didn't have the energy!

 This year was a recovery year for me, and I think I'm fully recovered yet but I'm getting much much better and I have so many amazing things that happened to me, so I gotta count it as a win!

- I attended BEA and got the most awesome roomies ever (I love you Britt, Becs and Sarah!!), and also got to meet and hang out with other amazing bloggers that I loooove and that I cannot wait to meet again next year!! ( Cassi, Octavia, Nikki, Christina, Cristina, Melissa!!).








And of course meeting so many amazing authors and getting books signed and getting some brilliant early ARCs and well, it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

And BEA is relevant to this giveaway because what I'm giving away is a preorder or copy of one of my top 5 books from BEA that I've read so far!

And which one are those books you might ask? Here they are:


- Fall Out by Gwenda Bond


- Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman


- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff


- Truthwitch by Susan Dennard




The 5 books are all 5 stars for me and I can highly recommend them all, so they lucky winner will choose one of these! The giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY since the book will be ordered via The Book Depository!  (Obviously if the book is not released, I'll be preordering the book at TBD for you!).

I will be checking the entries, so no cheating dears, I'm in a celebratory mood but I don't like cheaters, so don't get cheeky!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


Best of luck everyone! I'll have a busy day having lunch with the parentals, spending time with a friend in the afternoon and having my nephews over for dinner! Oh boy, I think I need a cupcake now!

Have a great Monday and Happy birthday to me! ;)

  2. Wheeeee! Happy birthday, Pili! I didn't know you were going to turn 35, because to be honest, you still look so young (like a 28 to me, no joke! ;D). Thanks for this giveaway! I won't be participating because I've read some of them already and want to give the chance to others, BUT YOU ARE SO GENEROUS. Best of luck to those participating and happy birthday again!!! :D

  13. I did wish you happy birthday over on Facebook, but happy birthday again! So wish I could have gone to BEA this year and met you. Let's see, I'd probably pick either Six of Crows or Illuminae. Both sound awesome. ANd I saw a copy of Six of Crows and I love the way the pages are black on the edges! Thanks for the awesome birthday giveaway!

  14. Hope you had a great birthday! Its a tough one to choose which book is my favourite, i'm really looking forward to Six of Crows and Truthwitch, i guess Six of Crows slightly wins. But they both seem fantastic!

  17. Happy birthday !
    From the 5 books I would pick Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman , because I'm a big fan of Western . From what I've heard the book is amazing . The other books are amazing too , but I'm trying to read something different at the moment .
