Book Snacks is 1 Year Old…! | Blogiversary/Birthday Giveaway Time! Plus a survey. And a game. Yay!


Hiiii! Not so long ago (or was it long ago?? I don’t remember. Roughly 2 weeks ago?? Maybe? Whatever. You know what I mean) I reached my 1-year blogiversary, and mentioned a giveaway on the way, am I right? Well, I’m here to keep good on that promise! I cannot stress enough how grateful I am for all your support; you guys have all become my friends, and I only want to give you guys something back for all the things you have given me! Okay, yes yes I know I’m sounding extra cheesy today—but hey, don’t judge. I’ll be back to the fangirling-yet-unemotional chocolate bar you all know soon enough.

Point is: I’m celebrating with a giveaway! And it happens to be my birthday near the end of this month, so I guess I’m celebrating that too, lol. So. My birthday isn’t till the 24th of this month, but whatever, right?? My blogiversary was a couple of weeks ago anyway. I know you’re all eager for the giveaway, but there are a few things I must mention first…

Blog Survey

This is totally optional, but I’d love to get some feedback on my blog! I created a survey, and I’d appreciate it so much if you guys took the time to answer. You can also get a few extra entries for the giveaway by doing so! Only some of the questions are mandatory, but, of course, I’d love it so much the more if you completed the whole thing! Here it is:

(If that doesn’t seem to work for you, you can get the link to it here.)

Thank you SO MUCH in advance!! ❤

Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt?? You ask. Why yes. Basically you just have to copy and answer the 5 questions in a comment below. To find the to the questions, you’ll have to scavenge around my blog! You don’t have to do it, of course, but you get the chance for more giveaway entries if you play the game.

Though, just a little disclaimer: this game can’t be credited as my idea. I actually scavenged it off from other blogs who’ve done something like this before, like Cait @ Paper Fury and a few other bloggers. (Haha, get it? Scavenged? Scavenger hunt? Okay, okay, I’ll stop.)

Some of these questions may have more than 1 right answer, by the way. You all know how bad I am with questions requesting only one answer! Are you ready for this? Okay, here they are:

  1. A book I read in 2016 that I rated 5 stars?
  2. A book that released 3 days ago (March 8th) that I can’t wait to read?
  3. One of my favourite genres?
  4. One (or more) of my 2016 bookish/bloggish resolutions?
  5. A book I often fangirl about?
  6. *Bonus: Something I’m scared of (it’s an animal, by the way.)

If you’re able to answer these questions without scavenging too much, good for you! Though I think they’re pretty easy to answer? Kind of? Either way, good luck! May the force of books and chocolate be with you. (I haven’t ever watched Star Wars, btw *cue gasps of horror*—yes, I know—so I hope that reference makes sense?)

*This actually will only be having one answer? I mentioned this A LONG time ago, in a post–so maybe if you’ve been here for awhile you might know it? Otherwise, you can always scavenge for the answer! 😛

Aaaaaand, the giveaway!

So, what you’ve all been waiting for! But before you guys go clickety-click and start entering entries, here are a few rules and things to remember:

  • One winner gets to choose a book from The Book Depository up to a value of $25 (in Canadian dollars).
  • Open internationally as long as Book Depository ships to your country. (Details here.)
  • Giveaway begins today (March 11th, 2016) and ends in around 3 weeks on April 1st, 2016 (Don’t worry, if you’re the winner, this won’t all be an April Fool’s joke. XD)
  • After the contest time I will be randomly choosing the winner through Rafflecopter. (On April 2nd, 2016)
  • Winner has 48 hours to respond before I choose another winner.
  • You must be 18 years of age to enter or have parental consent to provide me your mailing address.
  • Winner’s personal information will be kept private and will not be publicized or used in any way other than to ship the book.
  • Entries will be checked and deleted if they’re don’t qualify—so no cheating please!

Now, time for the giveaway! Here it is. Gobble it up, guys. You’re welcome. 😀 Now talk to me in the comments: what book would you like to receive, from TBD? Oh, and here’s some chocolate if you participate in the scavenger hunt or do the survey. ❤ Hope you guys are all enjoying your Friday!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

      • So far school has been good, thanks for asking, Analee! I’ve just been uber busy and less inspired to blog (hence the many book reviews and pretty much nothing else). It’s also made it harder to blog hop. Sigh. But, overall, really fun and stressful at the same time, haha. XD How has school been treating you?

        • I can totally empathize! I fell into a terrible blogging slump mid-March (SO MUCH WORK AGH) and it’s been hard getting the motivation to get back into blogging. :/ I haven’t been blog hopping much either–but I’m trying to fix that, haha. I’m hoping it might also inspire me to start making more time for blogging. 🙂

  3. Happy Blogiversary!!!! And thanks so much for hosting a giveaway as well!
    I also participated in your survey, but it was difficult to answer some stuff. What if I really can’t tell you what to improve? I DON’T KNOW!
