GIVEAWAY: It’s My Birthday, 2017 Edition

Has it really been 2 months since I last posted here?! Life has just gotten really hectic for me this year and I’ve also been in a massive reading slump, which has contributed to this blogging slump. I went through a rough few months, with my dad passing away in July. I didn’t really want to tell anyone because I didn’t (and still don’t) want messages from everyone sending their regards. It was enough for me to know that people were thinking of me without having to receive countless messages reminding me of it all the time, if that makes sense.

I’m now on a research lab visit at the University of Toronto until November and that has added a lot of extra stress, and I’ve been homesick and missing my family and friends. But it’s my birthday today and although I’m not really a fan of celebrating my birthday, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway!

I’m 25 this year so I’m going to be giving away $25 AUD to spend on Book Depository to 3 winners! Check out the rules below and click on the Rafflecopter link to enter!


  • This giveaway will run for 2 weeks and end at 11:59pm AEDT on October 6, 2017.
  • 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 THREE winners who will be able to choose up to $25 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 winners will be chosen at random through Rafflecopter.
  • I will contact the winner on October 7th 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.

    I won’t say anything that you don’t want to hear right now, if that’s your decision. But I will wish you the best, Jenna ❤ I can't even imagine the stressful time you're going through and your emotions all over the place because of that, but girl, you're going to be okay, I know you will 😉 Just remember to keep your loved ones with you, at least in your thoughts until you get to see them again – although I imagine you talk to them somehow ^^ And take things easy 🙂 Remember to have some time for you, for the things that you love doing and make you happy. As for the blog, if you don't feel like blogging, reading or anything, then don't do it, lovely! We just want you to be okay and happy. All the best in Toronto!
    And happy belated birthday, of course!! Even if you don't like celebrating it, I hope you got lots of presents! ahaha

    PS: I entered the giveaway, and if I won, I'd like a copy of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll 🙂

    If by some miracle I win this giveaway I would pick either A Darker Shade of Magic (collector’s edition) by V. E. Schwab or The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo.
    Thank you for a generous giveaway!! 😊
