|| t w e n t y || happy birthday giveaway!

it's my birthday today. happy birthday, me!! *eats all the cake*

we haven't celebrated my birthday on my actual birthday for almost five years now; since my brother and I are a month apart, it makes sense for us to celebrate somewhere in the middle. so yeah, there will be cake and ice cream this evening, and then actual birthday celebration things later in August, but on this blog, there are going to be FANTASTIC birthday festivities! *throws confetti and glitter around*


I am hosting a giveaway! *le gasp* during my trip to Chicago, I had the joy of reading This Savage Song, the story of Kate Harker and August Flynn, complete with monsters and music and general awesomeness. monsters against humans in a strange reversal of roles, with very little romance to speak of (platonic friendships, man. YA needs more frenemies like Kate and August). the premise is so interesting, and the writing is so poetic and beautiful it hurts. it's not a perfect book (you'll have to wait to hear my complete thoughts until my review of it later this month), but I literally could not put it down. the fact that book 2 won't be out until 2017 PAINS ME. and since I haven't liked a book this much in quite a while, I decided in about 2.4 seconds to give a copy away.


ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL?


in addition, it will come with this lovely copy of Black Hearts at Battersea, because I think I raved about it a little too much in my post about my childhood reads, and now I must share the love.


good luck to you all! I wish I could give everyone a copy of this amazing book, but alas, I am a poor college student who needs to buy curtains and manga, the staples of life. I'll announce the winner in ten days, because ten is a fantastic number.


spread the word (or don't; all the more chances for you to get your hands on these books), and may the force be with you!

have some cake before you leave, and thank you for celebrating with me, in this weird internet way!

    1. dude I always forget you're from Scotland...maybe my next giveaway will be International! :) Schwab is fantastic. I didn't like A Darker Shade of Magic as much as I loved This Savage Song, but it was pretty good all the same. Getting ready to start Vicious as well.
