Wahoo! Blogoversary Giveaway...

time to PARTY (& share a little bit of cake...)
A little smidgen ago inkcrush turned ONE!


And it's been a pretty snazzy year hanging out with all you guys and chatting about books.

I feel pretty much humbled to be a part of this book blogging community and to have made friends (Aussie and international buddies) and also interacted with some of my author idols (!)

It's been BRILLIANT, yeah.

And I have a give-away to celebrate. Both give-aways will run until May 10

Open internationally via The Book Depository:

TWO winners can spend $15 @ The Book Depository*
(or around about ~ a smidgen over is fine...)

(I was going to make you choose between all my fave books, haha, but I know you guys have great taste anyway)

* or Better World Books if TBD doesn't ship to you (or you're after some second hand books)

Aussie only

I have one sparkly new copy of 
to give-away

It received a 5/5 review from the brilliant Alpha Reader: "I love ‘Strange Angels’. This is a dark, kick-ass young adult paranormal series." Danielle says if you love Vampire Academy you will love this series.

Along with DEFIANCE, I'll include an ARC* (if the winner is interested) of either:  

*NIGHTSHADE ARC is silver with dark purple swirly font. 
I AM NUMBER FOUR is an exclusive hard cover with a special slip case to keep it inside.

Thanks for celebrating with me guys :)

  28. Happy Blogoversary Nomes! I can't believe it's been a year already. I must have missed your giveaway in the A - Z madness when I've been blogging every on my travel blog (managed to get a few Aussie spots in!). So I have submitted my forms.

    You've no idea how sweet it was to see Aussie Residents only. Makes a change from all the contests we're barred from Down Under where the postage is crippling (well,it is in reverse too!)
