Summer Time Giveaway!

on April 21, 2013

We are in the middle of summer season here in the Philippines and summer only means one thing for me – vacation! Main reason why I haven’t updated the blog this fast few weeks is because I’m busy planning and organizing some of my out of town trips and vacations with family or friends. Just last weekend I went out for swimming with family and friends. I’m currenly tan and reddish right now because of sunburn. I think this is the hottest summer here in the Philippines.

Another reason why I am missing in action lately is because I spent my days with my 9 year old nephew last week who stayed with us for a week before his summer class start. Spending time with a kid is quite consuming so I don’t have much time to read and review any books. I’m still trying to get back on track with all the reading challenges and online tours I joined too, as well as those books I scheduled to read and review.

Those are my reasons why this blog is silent for the past few weeks. But inspite of me being absent and this blog being silent, there are people who still managed to drop by here in the blog to read and leave some comments. As a thank you for sticking around here on the blog I’m giving away few books.

There are two giveaways, one for International entries and another one for local entries or to those who live in the Philippines. For international giveaway, one winner will received a book of his/her choice which I’ll order from book depository upto $10, so make sure that the book store ships to your location. You can check it from their website. For Philippine giveaway, I’m giving away three books, a hardbound copy of Tiger’s Quest by Colleen Houck, hardbound copy of Requiem by Lauren Oliver, and paperback copy of Shine by  Jeri Smith-Ready. One book per winner which means there will be three winners from Philippines and one from international.

    I’d choose Shine. Awesome cover and I read the synopsis. So yeah, definitely Shine. I have Requiem already, I just haven’t started it. I’m reading Delirium right now. Thanks for this giveaway! Hope you have fun on your vacation. I’ll be going to Disney World with my family in July. So excited to see my little cousins have fun!
