Hi darlings! So the other day I was thinking it's probably about time for the first follower appreciation giveaway of 2013. So, I took so time and put a lovely little one together.

So, rules are the same as always. Check my Giveaways page. Actually read it. Same old.

It's going to run throughout the rest of February, so come back and tweet to enter every day!

There will be three winners, who each get to choose a book from my fabulous list of favorite February releases this year.



Okay, yay! I think that's it. Time for the rafflecopter.

  87. Well, I don't know if it has been already translated to English, but here it goes: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/382886.Tatt_av_kvinnen

    It is written by a Norwegian author, Erlend Loe. It is not a young adult book, yet you should give it a chance. It is funny and it has an interesting storyline.

    (Sorry if I've been making mistakes, my native language is Hungarian :))
