-Giveaway will end on Dec. 25 & is open INTERNATIONNALLY-



  • It’s really cool to see how many books are getting movie/TV Show adaptations now. I just hope all of them aren’t a total bust. I would probably want Vicious by V.E. Schwab for Christmas, I keep hearing so much buzz around it but haven’t been able to find it anywhere locally.


  • At some point I will end up reading Ready Player One, but I suspect that point is a good 2 years into the future. It is just crazy how my reading schedule is already filled up 🙂


  • I didn’t realise Red Queen and Illuminae were being adapted – but I suppose with books that good it’s only a matter of time. Thanks for letting me know, now I have plenty of time for the hype to build!
    I love giving people books that are being adapted, then when it comes out you get to have a cinema date with the receiver… what’s not to love?


  • I’m excited yet nervous for the tv show adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I really hope that they do a better job in the tv show than they did in the movies.


  • Great post! I didn’t know about Illuminae or the Red Queen, but I can say I am SUPER stocked about Ready Player One!! What book would I like to receive? I suppose the Red Queen! I haven’t read that series yet.


  • My local cinema had an early screening of A Monster Calls last night and I got to go see it and I loved it! Emotional but very very good!🙃 I can’t wait to see what to do with Red Queen since I loved that book!


  • The Name of the Wind by Patrick Roffus I have The Wise Man’s fear on my bookshelf that I found at a goodwill, but I desperately need the first book!


  • What a fantastic post, and I legit GASPED because I had NO idea Illuminae was becoming SOMETHING? I don’t ever think I’ll be able to watch this story on the big screen, I am WAY too scared haha but wow. Also, I’m curious about EVERYTHING now. And A Monster Calls…well, erm. I need to see that one. but I’m going to cry haha. And I need to read the book.
    Thank you for this so generous giveaway! since I have no idea if this is international or not, to answer your question, I’ll probably go with A Monster Calls 😀


  • The Handmaid’s Tale was made into a movie quite a few years ago, but it was (quite) terrible, so I’m hoping this adaptation will be better!
    If the giveaway is open internationally, I would love The Knife of Never Letting Go. I just read my first Patrick Ness and I’m hooked!


  • Ahh i had no idea about so many books being made into movies- I’m super excited to hear about illuminae!! And cos of that, even though I don’t actually celebrate Christmas, I’m gonna say gemina!! Awesome post!!!


  • Here’s the extra motivation I needed to finally read some of the books that are on my TBR!! I really want to read A Handmaid’s Tale, Ready Player One and Red Queen, they’re all on my bookcase, I’m a terrible book mom 😀 If this is an international giveaway, I’d go with The Circle!


  • So sick! I hope they knock it out of the park for A Wrinkle In Time. Also, it looks like I should actually finish The Knife Of Never Letting Go soon lol.


  • I would like any of the three books: Ready Player One, The Circle, and The Knife of Never Letting Go. I can hardly wait to see these movies. I’ve read most of the books except for the ones I would like to receive and a couple of the others


  • Oh of course I see this post too late! Go figure.
    I can’t wait to see Lemony Snicket with Neil Patrick Harris! And The Circle freaks me out!
    Some awesome movies on this list!!
    Hope you had an awesome giveaway as I am still catching up on emails and the holidays put me behind!


  • I’m so excited for A Series of Unfortunate Events series! ✨ AND OMG WHAT, Illuminae will be turned into a movie??!! Well, more reasons to start reading the series I guess. 🙈🙈 Great list! 💕
