Rachel's Radiant Birthday Giveaway!

"Spring is here. The sky is strawberry blue. Whoaa. Folks outside sing as if they knew." 



It's my Birthday Month! My birthday is this coming Thursday, April 5!
I decided it to celebrate it with you, my unforgettable followers, by hosting my first ever giveaway! This giveaway is to rejoice in my birthday, celebrate my fantastic followers and adorable comments I receive on my blog. Thanks to everyone who has enjoyed my blog so far! I had so much fun the last three months chatting on GoodReads, commenting and reading other blogs, and creating reviews. 

Rachel's Radiant Birthday Giveaway will run from March 30, 2012 to April 15, 2012.

Five choices of a printed book and one winner! 

Rules:
1. Must be 13 or older.
2. Open internationally, anywhere the Book Depositary will send! 
3. The winner will be chosen completely randomly by Rafflecopter,
4. The winner will be notified by email and have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen. 
5. Have fun! 
The Rafflecopter is at the bottom of the post!


The marvelous choices:

1. This is the first book in an unforgettable and drama-filled series I love. I am sure that every reader will find something they love about this book. Whether it would be the writing, the characters or the plot. I feel extremely connected with the characters in this series and can talk about it for days! 

2. This book is a brilliant historical fiction novel on a horrible historical event that I feel everyone should know about. It is beautifully written and I love the part after the book were Sepetys discusses her beliefs on the events that transpired. I cried after reading this book (I rarely cry for books) It was that moving, That sad. That amazing.






3. I offering a copy of The Mockingbirds as a choice because I loved the story of a teenager standing up against oppression while dealing with uncertainty of what really happened. This is an amazing, reflective book on social issues that remains intriguing and engaging.  





4. One of my all-time favorite writers is Richelle Mead so I'm offering a copy of the first book in the Vampire Academy series. For those who have not had the chance to try this series out, should definitely start this series soon! 




5. I am very sad about how the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz is now over so I decided to offer a copy of Scorpia Rising. This is the final chapter of the Alex Rider series, but can be easily read without reading the rest of the series. Though I'm sure once you finish this book you will want to read the rest of the amazing series! Also I couldn't not offer a book by an author born on April 5! 


Thanks for entering!

  2. Hope your birthday is going to be awesome, Rachel! For my birthday, I'd finally like to get The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I heard tons of good stuff about the whole book series, I just hadn't any time or money to go buy them for myself. Or I'd love to get some more John Green books. I only have got two of his works and they're absolutely brilliant.

    Thank you soooo much for this giveaway!
