SO IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR. The leaves are turning, Ramadhan is over, people are buying notebooks and crying over textbook prices. What better way to celebrate than with a pile of free books! The rules are simple: be a follower and reblog (once, if you please! I mean, reblog as often as you like, but a single entry per person). The winner get’s their pick of four books from the below list (shipping is on me!):
The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Reese Brennan
The Hundred Thousand Kingdom’s by N. K. Jemisin
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Pirates! by Celia Rees
Eon by Alison Goodman
These are all paperbacks, and all my favorites. They are all brilliantly executed novels with some element of the fantastic and all manage to be inclusive in their diversity. The giveaway runs untilSeptember 15.
Also, because of the fact that I’m a broke writer/book seller/college student, entries are limited to the USA and Canada because I can’t afford to send out four books internationally.

If your parents come knocking for some parent/child time, just yell this term paper is due on Tuesday, don’t you care at all about my future?! It will work, and your parents will also feel guilty and give you at least three hours of uninterrupted work time. Which you can use to Tumbl. — Contributor Sumayyah Daud on using The Crazy to avoid family engagements in order to WRITE ALL THE THINGS.
