3 Month Blogoversary Giveaway (INT)!

I am in shock right now. Seriously. I just noticed the date on my laptop a few minutes back and I seriously can’t believe that it has been THREE months already since I started my blog. Yes, on May 15th, 2013, That Artsy Girl’s Book Blog entered this (virtual) world. It feels like yesterday when I thought, “Hey, I like books. I like writing. So, what don’t I start writing about books I like?”

Over these three months, I have met some amazingly good authors, some insanely helpful bloggers and readers who are just as crazy about books as I am. And I just made a spur of the moment decision to thank all you people out there who took the time to read my blog. And what better way to thank book-crazy people than to host a giveaway of books?

So, here it is, all official looking:


The winner of this giveaway will win ANY BOOK OF HIS/HER CHOICE. The giveaway is INTERNATIONAL as long as the Book Depository ships to your country. Thanks so much guys for all your love!

She is a half demon, oblivious to her true nature.
He is a demon set out to avenge murder.

Together they are hunted by the one person she thought she could trust.
Separate they may be able to save each others lives.

New York – Paris – Dschinnanya.


Bloody hell, he cursed silently. He had been hoping to achieve better results; to find out more about Baldwin’s aims and motivations. As it were, all he could do was feed off the energy he had tapped into. In a matter of minutes he felt more alive than before. He might not have been able to complete his mission but at least he was stronger now. Only a little bit more and he would be able to escape from his prison.

Five minutes later he was ready to leave. It was about time; Baldwin wasn’t paying attention at the moment, but there was no telling how long this would last. Fortunately, though, he was still angry. Alexander was just about to draw back when a thought entered his head.

Why was Baldwin in a rage?

The man barely had control over himself. He was close to killing the person who had caused all the emotional turmoil. But who was it?

Sariel. The name was just a whisper in his head. And then Alexander knew.

Share seven things about yourself

Nominate blogs and inform them of the nomination

Seven facts about me!

  1. I am the complete opposite of a neat freak. I like cluttered rooms (nor dirty). I think they have more personality.
  2. Whenever I’m upset, I write.
  3. I have a mole on my forehead that I hate.
  4. I’ve always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument, but I’m too lazy. My electronic keyboard is the first and last instruments my parents bought for me. They’ll buy me a new one if I learn to play this, but I doubt it’ll ever happen.
  5. I’ve always wanted to travel the world. Hope I get an opportunity one day.
  6. I hate my fingers and toes.
  7. I think Taylor Swift is an annoyance (Sue me).

Alrighty, I’ve accepted the awards and answered the questions. I’m excited about what my nominees’ answers will be! ^_^ =)
