Lovely followers, it’s giveaway time! 

I’ve just recently reached a pretty big follower milestone, and to say thank you I’ll be hosting a giveaway.

Interesting points:

  • You obviously must be following me. It is a thank you giveaway after all. This is the whole point. I’ll check.
  • The photos above have no bearing on what books will be available, I just wanted some photos to stick up there to make it look better.
  • You can like and reblog to enter. I’m not exactly sure how the notes work, but I think if you reblog it more than once from the same place it might not show up on the notes, then again it might. I don’t know how they work.
  • Don’t spam everybody reblogging. It bugs me when I scroll down the dash and see the same giveaway post on someone’s tumblr like ten posts in a row. There’s no reblog limit, but don’t annoy people with it.
  • End date: 16 September at 7pm AEST. I’ll post announcements and stuff when the date gets closer and the time gets closer.
  • I’ll be using a number generating site to pick a winner. There will be one winner.
  • You must have your ask link open and be willing to tell me your address for postage. If you don’t reply within 24 hours of me messaging you I’ll pick another winner.
  • Prize: book(s) to the value of AU$25 from the Book Depository (and hopefully you’ll get a bookmark too!).
  • Of course, BD will have to post to where you are.

I think that’s it, so good luck! Thanks for following!

{GOODREADS}

Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they’ve known. Separated from her father, forced onto a crowded and dirty train car, Lina, her mother, and her young brother slowly make their way north, crossing the Arctic Circle, to a work camp in the coldest reaches of Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin’s orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions.

Lina finds solace in her art, meticulously—and at great risk—documenting events by drawing, hoping these messages will make their way to her father’s prison camp to let him know they are still alive. It is a long and harrowing journey, spanning years and covering 6,500 miles, but it is through incredible strength, love, and hope that Lina ultimately survives.
