#DianneTurns20: Introduction + Giveaway

Friday, November 1, 2013


So it's finally November! Which means... it's my birthday month! I was officially born on November 3 but here at Oops! I Read A Book Again, I love celebrations. Especially if it involves giving away books! So, I'm having a five-day celebration with giveaways galore EVERY DAY from today until November 5 to celebrate me not being a teen anymore. [Nooooooo, I am slowly leaving the young adult age group.] Yes, I'm turning 20 this November 3. *fireworks* *confetti* Eeeeepp!

But we're not only celebrating my 20th birthday. I'm also very much happy as my blog turned ONE this October 13. Eeeekkk! Yes, Oops! I Read A Book Again is a year old! Although OIRABA (the abbreviation sounds lame) was a shy little baby as it only became official January 2013, it was still "born" last October so I think it still deserves some party around here.

Not only that but my Facebook page also reached 1000+ likes, I got 1000+ Twitter followers and hey, 100,000+ views! I also have almost 600 GFC followers and almost 400 on Bloglovin'. Wow! I can't believe everything. I never thought this would happen. And I guess this deserves some merrymaking too as I finally organize tours! It has been my dream for so long and I can now say that WOW, it finally came true, all thanks to YOU.

So #DianneTurns20 is also my way of thanking y'all. My readers, the authors who entrusted me with their books for review and graced my blog with their presence, the publishers and publicists for being Grade A AWESOME and of course, my blogger friends who were always there for spazzing with books and for hearing me rant.

I LOVE YOU ALL.

And so, to thank all of you, I'm giving away tons of books. Starting today! But first, here's the schedule!


See? I have a terrific line-up. And just a sneak peek but I will be giving away OF POSEIDON and OF TRITON by Anna Banks, BLACK CITY by Elizabeth Richards and a WHOLE LOT MORE. So come and join on the fun!

You can also post the button for #DianneTurns20 made by the SUPERCALIFREAKINAMAZING Sab of Sab The Book Eater on your blog to support my event and it will also give you more points for the giveaways! Yeehaw!

    I absolutely love time travel and sci-fi (All Our Yesterdays)
    After Hello just sounds interesting, because what does happen after you say hello to someone? :O
    and Find Me? I love a good mystery. Totally can't wait to read these. Thanks for the giveaway!(:

  13. Happy belated birthday Dianne! If won I would definitely choose All Our Yesterdays, because I've been wanting to read that ever since it came out, Pushing the Limits, because I need to reread that before I read Dare You To, and probably Find Me, because I heard it was really good. Thank you for the giveaway!
