The Bookworm's Haven

Mia. 17. Ravenclaw. Avid Reader. Communication + Management Major.

This is my book tumblr blog as well as my personal blog because I found it hard to manage two blogs at the same time. My personal life seems to be tied up with books and reading.

I’m so excited to announce my 100 Follower Giveaway. I haven’t been on Tumblr for very long and wasn’t expecting anyone to take interest in my book inspired blog. Guess I was wrong. I really want to thank all my wonderful followers and what better way to do that then with a book giveaway.


  • You must be following me. This is a giveaway to thank my followers. I will be checking.
  • I’ve decided to make this giveaway international! I will personally make sure the book is safely delivered to you.
  • There will be one winner. (Don’t worry, I plan on having many more giveaways in the future!)
  • Contest will end October 1st, 2014.
  • Reblog/Like to enter. You may reblog this post as many times as you would like, just don’t annoy your followers. 
  • I’ve listed some of my favorite books above. You can pick any book from there or you can choose any book from the Book Depository (under $30). Just so you know, some of these books are hardcover and some are paperback. Also, a few of the books listed above need to be ordered online.
  • Now, if you already own a book but it has others in the series then you can ask for any of the other books. I’d be happy to help you with that. Just let me know.
  • No giveaway blogs!
  • Please make sure that you are comfortable with giving me your address. (I will need it to send you the book. That’s it.)
  • Make sure your ask box is open. I will be contacting you through it.
  • At the end of the Giveaway if the winner doesn’t contact me back within 48 hours I will have to pick someone else.

If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me here. Once again, thank you to everyone who is following me. I really appreciate it. Keep on reading! Good luck!

The best morals kids get from any book is just the capacity to empathize with other people, to care about the characters and their feelings. So you don’t have to write a preachy book to do that. You just have to make it a fun book with characters they care about, and they will become better people as a result.
