Birthday Giveaway!

It's my birthday in 7 days!

So I should be the one recieving presents really.... but no, as it is my birthday, I'm hosting my first giveaway BUT THERE IS A CATCH:

At the moment. I have 11 followers. While you can enter the giveaway from now, there will be NO winners unless I have reached 50 followers by the end of the giveaway. 

If I have reached 50 followers, There will be ONE winner
If I have reached 100 followers, There will be TWO winners
If I have reached 200 followers, There will be THREE winners
I doubt I will get past 200, but if I do, I will carry on adding more winners.

I'm tight, I earn £3.64 an hour right now, so I can't afford many more than that.

Here are the rules:
  • The giveaway will end at Midnight (GMT) on Monday 2nd May (my birthday)
  • It is open INTERNATIONALLY as long as The Book Depository ships FREE to your country
  • I'm keeping it simple. The only way that you can earn an extra entry is by spreading the word on your blog/facebook/twitter
  • To enter, fill out THIS FORM.
So what can you win?

Winners can choose one book from the following selection:

Inside Out - Maria V Snyder
Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
Little Red Riding Hood - Sarah Blakeley-Cartwright
Siren - Tricia Rayburn
The Declaration - Gemma Malley
Ash - Malinda Lo
The Blue Sword - Robin McKinley
This Lullaby - Sarah Dessen
The Beautiful dead (Arizona) - Eden Maguire
Eternal - Cynthia Leitich Smith
Lament - Maggie Stiefvater
Old Magic - Marrianne Curley

I have read all of these books (except Little Red Riding Hood) and I reccomend every single one of them!

100 follower update (28/04/2011)

So at some point last night, while I was dreaming of magical buses (no lie, this is what reading has done to me,) I reached 100 followers, that means I get to offer some more prizes to my giveaway, there will also be another winner.

The first winner drawn will get a pick from 22 books,
The second winner will get to choose only from the original 12

These are the extra choices I have added:

My Soul To Take - Rachel Vincent
The Lovely Bones- Alice Sebold
Ice - Sarah Beth Durst
Incarceron -Catherine Fisher
Aurelia - Anne Osterlund
The Lying Game - Sara Shepard
Stolen - Lucy Christopher
Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson
The Vampire Diaries 1&2 - L.J Smith
Graceling - Kristin Cashore

Have fun and by the way...
