1,000 Twitter Follower Giveaway – Enter to Win a Book of Your Choice (Up to $20 Value) – Open Intl.


I’m so thrilled to announce that I have finally reached the 1,000 follower mark on twitter. Yay!  I love to celebrate blogging milestones, so I’m hosting a bookish giveaway as a way to say thanks to everyone who follows and reads my blog.  You’re the best!

At first I was going to come up with a specific list of books for you to choose from, but there’s so many amazing books out there right now that I couldn’t choose just a few and didn’t want to limit your choices either. So, instead, I’m just setting a $20 value on my giveaway and letting the winner select a book of their choice (up to that $20 value) from The Book Depository.  The giveaway is also open internationally as long as TBD ships to you, so be sure to check their list before entering: (Countries The Book Depository Ships To)

The giveaway runs from now until October 30, so be sure to get your entries in by then.  I’ll be contacting the winner via DM.  Thanks again for all of your support!

Blogiversary Giveaway # 1: Hardcover Copy of The Hate U Give

It’s hard to believe this much time has gone by already, but The Bookish Libra turns one year old this week! I guess time flies when you’re doing something you love, right?  And I do love sharing my love of books!

I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who has visited my blog during this first year.  Your support and friendship has been so important to me and I very much look forward to continuing to get to know the book community.

As a token of my appreciation and of course to celebrate my blog’s milestone, I’m doing a couple of giveaways.  One will start today and the other will start on Friday, so be sure to check back then to see the second one.

Up first, I’m giving away a hardcover copy of the 2017 release, The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas. This is such an important book that I think everyone should read so I want to do my part to make sure it gets into as many hands as possible.  I started reading it a couple of days ago and the cover does not exaggerate:  It is absolutely riveting.

In case there is anyone out there who isn’t familiar with this book, here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.


This giveaway will run for 10 days, ending at midnight on April 1st, and is international (as long as The Book Depository ships to you. (List of countries TBD ships to).  The winner will be selected at random and will be contacted via DM on twitter to get shipping information for the prize.

Good luck to all who enter!

HC “Heartless” Giveaway to Celebrate 500 followers on Twitter!

I don’t know about others but I’ve been in a funk ever since Election night and haven’t felt much like reading or blogging.  In an effort to get myself into a more positive frame of mind and because I really want to celebrate finally making it to the 500 follower mark on twitter (YAY!), I’ve decided to host my first-ever giveaway here on The Bookish Libra because if sharing book love doesn’t get me out of my funk, then nothing will, haha! 🙂

Heartless by Melissa Meyer is a book that I’ve been dying to read ever since I first heard about it months ago.  It finally came out on November 8th, and I immediately ordered myself a copy as a belated birthday gift.  I’ve already read several glowing reviews about it so I want to give away a copy to a fellow reader.

Here’s the Goodreads blurb for anyone who may be unfamiliar with the book:  

“Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

In her first stand-alone teen novel, the New York Times-bestselling author dazzles us with a prequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”
