[Closed] One More Page – Anniversary Giveaway

One More Page Anniversary Giveaway

NOTE: This giveaway is closed! Thanks to everyone who joined. :-) Winners were announced here. :)

It’s Christmas Eve in my part of the world! :) I think I just about survived the most hectic Christmas season ever with parties, work and a wedding to attend, so now that things are winding down, it’s time to up some things here in the blog. :)

Other bloggers have set up their gratitude/Christmas/what-have-you giveaways in the past weeks, and I am kind of joining the bandwagon. My blog is about to celebrate its first anniversary in a couple of weeks (on January 9, to be exact), so what better way to celebrate that and Christmas (well, an extended reason to celebrate, anyway) than a book giveaway? :D Presenting:

One More Page Anniversary GiveawayOne More Page Anniversary Giveaway! I never really thought I’d be able to keep a niche blog for this long, and I have met so many people, read so many books and learned so many new things that I am really, really grateful. As a thank you to everyone who’s left comments, visited and followed my blog, I will be giving away copies of the following books:

I want to make this giveaway interactive, so instead of just making you fill out a form and making you do so many other things, all you need to do to enter this giveaway is leave a comment. Leave a comment in every entry from now up to January 9, 2011, and every comment will count as an entry to the giveaway. You can leave multiple comments on an entry, especially if it’s a discussion post. :) The more comments you leave, the more entries you get, and we will have meaningful conversations, too! :P

I will pick two winners at random: one in the Philippines and one international*. Winners get to pick one of the books listed above**. :)

Easy-peasy, right? :)


  • Contest runs starting today up to January 9, 2011
  • Every comment left starting this post up to January 9, 2011 will count as an entry to the contest (unless otherwise stated in the comment)***.
  • Two winners will be chosen at random (random.org), one in the Philippines and one international*

Alrightie then! Looking forward to hear from everyone! :)

* As long as Book Depository ships to your country
** In case the winner already has all of the books, they can pick any book worth $15 from Book Depository
*** I reserve the right not to include comments that are irrelevant to the entry or comments that are left just to leave a comment and nothing else. Again, one of the purposes of the contest is to encourage interaction, so meaningful/relevant comments, please. :)

(Closed) Book Giveaway: Feed by Mira Grant


I found out about Feed by Mira Grant when I was doing my book blog rounds in my Google Reader. I remember coming across the cover and seeing the RSS logo and thinking, “Oh cool, it’s an RSS logo.”

Then I read the blurb and my next thoughts were:

Blogging…and zombies? OMG AWESOME. I must have this!

I ended up getting the Kindle edition of this book, and I ended up loving it so much that I knew this is one of the books that I would want to have an actual copy of…and because I really, really love it so much and I want someone to talk to about this, I bought two copies of this book so I can hold a *drumroll*book giveaway.

Yes! I figure, One More Page is already six months old, and what better way to celebrate that by giving away one of my favorite books in 2010!

Book # 1 of the Newsflesh Trilogy
Published by: Orbit Books

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

NOW, twenty years after the Rising, Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives-the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will out, even if it kills them.

Big Fat YA Giveaway from Simon and Schuster UK

We all love book giveaways, yes?

The Book Smugglers, one of my favorite review sites, is hosting Simon and Schuster UK’s Big Fat YA Giveaway. They’ll be giving away eight up and coming YA books, namely:

  • Passing Strange by Daniel Waters
  • The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
  • Night of Solstice by LJ Smith
  • Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 and 2
  • Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (sequel to Hush Hush)
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

This contest is open to everyone, just by commenting on their post! Personally, I’m most excited about The Replacement b Brenna Yovanoff. Look at the (UK) cover and blurb:

The Replacement by Brenna YovanoffMackie Doyle seems like everyone else in the perfect little town of Gentry, but he is living with a fatal secret – he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now the creatures under the hill want him back, and Mackie must decide where he really belongs and what he really wants.

A month ago, Mackie might have told them to buzz off. But now, with a budding relationship with tough, wounded, beautiful Tate, Mackie has too much to lose. Will love finally make him worthy of the human world?

Awesome, yes? Plus, finally, a male protagonist! It’s about time — it gets tiring to read about female protagonists. I want to read something about the other gender. :)

The cover kind of reminds me of an R.L. Stine book. Don’t you think?

Anyway, the contest is open to everyone (yay international contests!) until June 19th, so leave a comment to put you in the drawing! :)
