August New Release Giveaway Hop (INT)


The new release giveaway hop is hosted by Book Twirps and Refracted Light Reviews.


Hello, guys! How are you all?

I'm kinda a bit lazy to start this month since it means I have to go back to campus life. But well, better starts sooner so I can get over it sooner, too. But still, I get excited too because there are great books coming up. What about you guys? What's so great about August?

So let's start the giveaway. You all know the rules. It won't be different than the previous. 
ONE winner gets to choose any AUGUST RELEASE book(s)  worth up to $15 from The Book Depository. So yes, this is INTERNATIONAL as long as The Book Depository ships to your country (you can check it here). If you're US resident, I might order it from Amazon. ^^

Thanks for stopping by and entering. Good luck to you all. And have a wonderful month!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Even though I am a grandma and no longer have kids at home, August means school-time to me. And that means a return to a more routine and scheduled day and week.
    I do like August because the days are still warm, and even hot!, but the evenings start to cool off -- not like September evenings, but certainly better than July ones. I can read a bit more in August, just because VBS, church camps, and other 'kid oriented' activities won't take up some of my time.

    ReplyDelete

  157. This August was the best part in one of my life's best summers! It was my best friend's birthday. We went to her summer cottage which is located at the northernmost place of Estonia's mainland. The people at the party were awesome and I loved the night (or early morning), especially the part where one of the guys made a fireshow - he's been studying it for 2 years - while we sat in our little circle with a waterpipe. Got to laugh, try some new things, etc. Loved it. But we stayed there in the countryside for about 2 weeks with just me, my sis, our 2 best friends and occasionally one more girl and two guys. With no Internet, no parents and the nearest shop 10 kilometres away it was different from what I was used to. Something had died in the well so we didn't want to touch the water from the sink. We therefore had some problems but it was rather funny than depressing. There were seasides in three directions, weather was nice, there was a big village swing nearby, so we had something to do almost every day. So sad that we had to go home, but I hope we can do it again next year! :D

    ReplyDelete
