I had a lot of fun doing my first giveaway last week (1st til 8th August) and checking out the blogs of the entrants and such that I thought hey, why not do a giveaway for the books I love now that everyone could enter? My reading tastes have changed a bit since I was a teen and these days my favourite genre is epic fantasy, the sword and sorcery variety, so I figured it would be awesome to do a giveaway for my favourite epic fantasy novels ((and The Blade Itself which I haven’t actually read yet but it looks fantastic and I’ve heard great things and shutup I wanted 6 covers in my image)) and simultaneously thank everybody who has made me feel so welcome as a book blogger, anybody who has commented on my blog, followed me, and spoken to me via twitter or even email.

I am opening this one up to international folk! You guys are extraordinarily lovely, so I wanted to say thank you. But please, please only enter if you’re interested in reading the books. They can be a bit wordy and I know a lot of people have issue with epic fantasy for it’s wordiness, and I’d like the book to go to a loving home so only enter if you’re interested and please spread the word as much as you can!

This is my button:

And you can tweet something like the following:
