Bookizzle's FIRST EVER Giveaway!


Well, here we are. IT'S ALL HAPPENING!


How to enter: Leave a ONE comment with your e-mail (please include your extra entries for those participating). All entrants MUST be over 13. You DO NOT need be a follower in order to enter, but it is highly encouraged (plus it gives you a better chance to win!)

Open to: US and Canada ONLY. Sorry my International lovelies. I'll have something for you later. EXTRA Entries:

+ 1 - if you PROMOTE via twitter/facebook/etc (you will get an extra entry for each individual site you advertise. YOU MUST LEAVE A DIRECT LINK. And yes, you may tweet multiple times. MAX ENTRIES = 3)
+ 1 - ADD or ALREADY FOLLOW me on twitter (@nikkinizzle - Make sure you leave your twitter name so I can credit you)
+ 1 - NEW follower (add me via google friend connect on my sidebar)
+ 2 - OLD follower (♥)
+ 2 - Put the contest on your SIDEBAR (+3 if you use my button! Must leave a link)
+ 4 - POST about it on your blog (Must leave a link)


NOTE: The deadline may change depending on how many entries I get. If I reach 100 followers before the deadline is reached, I will add another winner (and possibly add another book or 2 to the prize haul). If I reach 150 (highly unlikely, hah) I will run around in circles then add some more prizes.

Any and all comments not following the above guidelines will be deleted and won't count for squat. Sorry!


  • - Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (Softcover)
  • - Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale by Holly Black (Softcover)
  • - Soulless by Gail Carriger (Softcover)
  • - Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins (Hardcover)
  • - Evermore (Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel (Softcover)
  • - Blue Moon (Immortals #2) by Alyson Noel (Softcover)
  • - Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (Hardcover)
  • - The Way of Shadows (Night Angels #1) by Brent Weeks (Softcover)


Grand Prize winner will receive: TWO books of their choice
First winner will receive: ONE book of their choice
Second winner will receive: ONE book of their choice
ETA: Third winner will receive: ONE book of their choice
ETA: Fourth winner will receive: ONE book of their choice

(Grand prize winner can select ONE of the hardback books if they so choose, but not both. Sorry, fair is fair.)

REMEMBER, If I reach 100 followers or more, there will be a FOURTH place winner and even more books to choose from. WE DID IT! 100 FOLLOWERS! OMG, 150 FOLLOWERS!! And if I go past that...well, I'll work that out if/when I get there.

★ ALL WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN RANDOMLY. Once the deadline for entries is reached, I should have the winners picked approximately 48 hours later. Winners will be notified via e-mail along with a big shiny blog post. After that, you have THREE days to respond before I randomly pick another winner(s).

Just to give you an idea of books that will be added if I reach over 100150, they are: THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, AND MORE. Who knows, I might even add more books and winners because I feel like it.

ETA: Earn TWO extra entries by commenting on THIS post. Offer good till WED 12/2!
