It’s time for me to share to you the giveaway prize I’ve been dying to receive for the past eight months. Yes read that right, it took eight months before these packages arrived in my door steps.
So last February, I won a giveaway hosted by @aus.fangirl.reads. She’s giving away a $30 AUD worth of books from Book Depository. I didn’t know what I should get but later that day, I finally decided on which book/books I’ll be getting.
As everyone have told me, it would take only one month and a half before the books would arrive from United Kingdom to the Philippines. When the one month mark passed, I didn’t worry that much. I waited for another month, and still nothing arrived. No notice from the post office. I didn’t worry that much as well because I know how crappy and awful our postal system is.
After four months of waiting, I decided to inform the host about it and she was so kind enough to email Book Depository and I was glad BookDepo decided to send me replacement for the books. It took just around three months or so for the books arrive. It actually arrived around September 29th here in my country but it arrived at my city’s post office by October 2nd. And I got it the following two days.
I was excited when my sister woke me up and gave me two packages that has a Book Depository logo on it! Out of excitement I opened it right away! Who wouldn’t right? I’ve been waiting for them to arrive that long!
I was so happy to finally get physical copies of these books! First books is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I got the UK Paperback to match with my Throne of Glass books.
Second book is, of course the sequel, A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.
And I was so happy to get my very first Book Depository bookmarks! I love them so much! Aside from excitement over the books these bookmarks were also the reason why I was so excited to open the packages. I was wishing to get multiple bookmarks with each book like others are getting. But who am I to complain? I got two new bookmarks to my growing collection of bookmarks!
I can’t wait to reread this books and to hopefully get my copy of ACOWAR soon (which I also won from a giveaway) I still hope it would arrive later this year.
Anyway that ends my short unboxing/unpacking the books I won from a giveaway. Expect to see more unboxing or unpacking or book mail in the near future! For the mean time, enjoy reading!
