Musing Mondays | May 27, 2013


Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Giveaways are common in the blogosphere and over the years, I’ve been joining a few giveaways here and there. Unfortunately for me, I have never won any givewaway which makes me sad and also it makes me think that the universe probably hate me and that the odds aren’t in my favor. Ha!

I don’t know what came over me last night. I was in Goodreads browsing new books and then I thought of joining a giveaway or two. And then it became three, four, five and I lost count. There are just so many interesting books in Goodreads’ giveaway list and who am I to say no to a free book? After all, the best things in life are free!

Clicking and clicking I did and before I knew it I entered 51 giveaways. Yes, 51! I just found out this morning when I counted them all.

  2. When I enter, I average a win of about two giveaways a year. My husband and I even once won the same book. 🙂 I miss giveaways, but haven’t entered ones in months due to having so many Advanced Reader Copies to review.

  3. I enter a lot of giveaways through goodreads and also through giveaway hops. I’ve won a few books both ways and still have some catching up to do reviewing them before I enter any more 🙂

  4. I do hope you win! I suck at giveaways – I always lose, but joining 51 giveaways, for sure one or two of those books are meant for you. Thanks for hopping by my MM post this week.

  5. That is a LOT of giveaways! There aren’t even that many listed on GoodReads for me! You asked on my blog (bookcomet) about the Infernal Devices. You have to read the trilogy! My favourite series ever! Though, have you read the Mortal Instruments series cause the Infernal Devices is a prequel trilogy. You read the books in the order it was published for the best effect. First three mortal instruments, then first infernal devices, then mortal instruments…You have to read them! Good luck with all your giveaway entering! I am not as unlucky as you – I have won two or three before 🙂

    • Oh I see, I will keep that in mind, this friend of mine has been a fan of Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices for years and she recommends it but I haven’t the time to read it. But I will really read them this time.
      So lucky! I hope this time I win a book or two .. 😀
      thanks for stopping by 🙂

    • i know haha. and then i started worrying because I thought it’s illegal to join that many giveaways so i carefully read Goodreads’ terms and conditions but it didn’t say anything about joining too many giveaways so yeah it’s all good.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

I read every comment you make and I will try to respond to each of them
