One Year Blogoversary Giveaway!

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Winner has been announced here :)


Hi you all! Carina's Books is today one years old. And oh, what an year it has been. I have loved book blogging. Still loving it. Don't think I will ever stop blogging. I love reading books, and then reviewing them. And sharing all kinds of book things. I enjoy it a whole lot. And I'm so happy to be a part of all of this :) I wanted to thank you all for commenting on my reviews and other posts. For reading my blog. And for following me. It means the world to me. Thank you. I love you all! <3

In one year I have gotten more than 500 followers, 50,000 page views, more than 2,700 comments and I have posted more than 370 posts. It has been an amazing year. Have also discovered so many new books while blogging, and I have read a lot more as well. Have read so many amazing books. While book blogging I have also gotten to know so many amazing people. They are all so kind. Not going to mention them, but some of you probably know who you are <3 I appreciate you all so much.
I started this giveaway with 526 blog followers. 201 facebook likes. 839 twitter followers.

To celebrate that I have "survived" a whole year of book blogging I'm going to have an International Giveaway ;) One winner will be picked, since I must save some money, and that person will get to pick a book out of the ones I have picked out below. They are all amazing books. Have read most; but a few are pre-orders ;) They are all paperbacks, though. Don't hate me for that (A) But, well, bookdepo has gotten so expensive for Norway these days. Still. I do adore paperback books :) (Also wanted to let you know I will be doing a swag giveaway in some months. <3)

Rules for my giveaway:
1 - Must follow me publicly via GFC.
2 - Must be able to receive books via BookDepo.
3 - Must want the book you choose. It needs to go to a good home ;)
4 - Also, you must fill out the rafflecopter form to enter.
5 - There will be one winner. Must respond to email within 48 hours.

  9. Congrats on a good blogging year! I have just started book blogging for one month and I am loving it too! As for the giveaway, I think I'd choose Daughter of Smoke and Bone or This is not a Test. I am a little late to the Daughter of Smoke and Blood hype, but I am looking forward to reading it someday. As for This is Not A Test, I am not exactly a zombie fan, but Alice in Zombieland caught my eye and I decided to give zombie books a try! ;)
