Oh my goodness, your blog is amazing Maya! I love it! Seems like we have very similar taste in books! hahaha. Btw, how's the Fallen books? I see them around in bookstores all the time, but I've never tried them. How good are they? The covers are very pretty, hehe.

christokristo (kristoo) | 22 comments wow all of those book blogs are great! I really envy you guys.

and great poems oon! i like the Slow Effacement. I never good at interpreting poems but by reading that I somehow feel a sens of inertia and passiveness.

I actually never wrote a book review before. so any tips from you guys? writing's not one of my virtues. Few times i got low grades in writing on IELTS tests.

I have a blog but none of the posts are book review and all of them written in bahasa and I rarely update it. and when i re-read my posts, it sound corny lol. i think i need to learn to form better sentences.

so Keep up the good works guys. :)

Oh! and I wrote a fanfic as a gift for a friend of mine who loves One Direction :P Idk how many of you like 1D. I'm neutral to them myself :P but if you have some critics about it please comment and tell me if I should change anything :D Anonymous comments are open xD

@Citra: Wow! you got Nicole from ixbooks to follow you!! that's awesome! xD

@Oon: Great poems there! I've been trying to write some myself but I'm not poetic enough :P so now I'm trying to write a light novel that later on I'll try to send to GagasMedia and Bukune :D yaay!

Tomoe Hotaru (saturnsenshi) | 58 comments Hi all! Just letting you know that I will be hosting some book giveaways in the next few months, the first one is a paperback copy of The Witch of Little Italy by Suzanne Palmieri, and the giveaway starts today until May 20.

Only a few countries are open to the giveaway, so I think your chances of winning are bigger than the normal international giveaways XD

Anyway, if anyone's interested you can check out the giveaway and good luck!

Have you used Rafflecopter much? How is it? Was thinking of running our own giveaway right here.

message 37: by Tomoe (new)

Tomoe Hotaru (saturnsenshi) | 58 comments Oooh yes, please do :D

It's actually my first time using it, but it's pretty simple and straightforward (and best part: free!, although there are some upgrade options too, of course.)
You can also moderate your winners, ie. checking the IP address to make sure no one's cheating, etc.

message 40: by Ren Puspita (new)

Ren Puspita (renpuspita) | 244 comments @Reza : Okay. I think I will put my giveaway in this thread first.

So, I currently have 4 giveaways in my blog. One will end in the next week. The rest are reading challenge, which I will choose one participant from each challenge to win each month.
