Birthday Giveaway: $40 for Book Depository! [CLOSED]

giveaway header

Edit [23.09.15]: Congratulations to the winner of my giveaway, Kelly @ Dancing Through The Pages.

Later this month, I will be turning 20-something (clue: it’s an odd number) so I wanted to do a giveaway for you guys!

I’ve been saving up reward points at Dymocks, which is basically the Australian version of Barnes and Noble, and I now have a grand total of $52 in credit points (including $10 I was given for my birthday). I’ve decided to keep the $10 for myself and give away the $40 I saved up. Because I wanted to make this an international giveaway and Dymocks only ships within Australia, I’m going to make this a Book Depository giveaway. Who doesn’t love free shipping?

I wanted to do this giveaway because I’ve made so many new friends since I started this blog. There are people I talk to almost everyday and I’ve just had so much fun fangirling and sharing recommendations with everyone. I’ve spoken to so many people who have wanted editions of books that are not available in their country, so I thought this would be a great opportunity for one person to have pretty much anything they wanted, as long as it’s available from Book Depository.

However, I also know that some Australian YA books that I’ve reviewed aren’t available overseas. If there’s an OzYA book that’s not available on Book Depository (I recommend The Flywheel by Erin Gough), I can purchase it from a local bookstore and ship it to you!


  • This giveaway will end at 11:59pm AEST on September 22, 2015 (my birthday!). I apologise for living in a timezone that is almost a day ahead of everyone else.
  • This giveaway will be open to all countries that Book Depository ships to. If you’re not sure, you can look it up here.
  • There will be ONE winner who will be able to choose up to $40 AUD worth of books from the available titles on the Book Depository. Remember to change the currency to Australian Dollar on the website when you’re browsing!
  • The winner will be chosen at random through Rafflecopter.
  • I will contact the winner on September 23rd and if I don’t receive a response within 48 hours, I will choose another winner. I will be checking the winner’s entries so please don’t cheat!
  • I will be ordering the books for the winner and will require an address, so please make sure that you have parental permission if you are under 18 years of age.
  • Book Depository will be sending out the order so I take no responsibility for damaged or lost parcels. I will send you a shipping confirmation and keep you updated on the process though.

Good luck!

    Eeep how exciting Jenna, thanks for the giveaway and HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY. Though I promise to remember when the day comes around 😀

    That’s really generous of you!
    Since I don’t know which books I’ll get for my birthday, I can’t be sure which I’d order if I were to win. But they’ll fall into the YA fantasy and LGBTQIA+ genre for sure.

    This is amazing! Thank you for hosting this giveaway when it’s YOUR birthday that’s coming up! Happy Early Birthday!! If I won I’d definitely pick up the Mistborn Trilogy box set. I’ve heard so much about it and REALLY want to read it. Plus those covers are awesome and it would break my heart to only be able to borrow them from the library. Owing such beauty would be a treat! Lol.


  4. Summer @ Xingsings says:

    Oh my gosh! This is like the month of birthday and giveaways. Well HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, JENNA! ^.^

    Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway for your followers/friends! For that you deserve an entire stable of beautiful unicorns. 😀 But I think I’ll be skipping the giveaway since the odds are never in my favor (I’ve only ever won one but that was because I was the only person that entered, LOL).


  5. Vania says:

    That’s so generous of you! Thankyou so much for the chance.
    I might buy Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover, The Rosie Effect, and Cinder (since this one looks so good!)
    Thank you for the giveaway and HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY! 🎉

    aw, happy birthday! I love your blog + this is an awesome giveaway! I hope this upcoming year is filled with meeting authors, great books, great travels, and great health! If I win, I’d love a copy of THE NEXT TOGETHER because the author is UK based so it’s not yet sold where I live /:. I also have a few other ;). Thanks for the giveaway ❤


    • Jenna @ Reading with Jenna says:

      Thank you so much, Jess! ❤

      I haven't heard of The Next Together *googles*. It sounds like an amazing time travel romance!! I haven't read very many time travel books but I love the idea of it being historical as well as futuristic. Now I want a copy of this! 😀

    If I win, I would like to have a copy of A Dance With Dragons: Part 1 Dreams and Dust (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5) by George R. R. Martin. 🙂
