Giveaway Rules:

1. Follow Bloody Bookaholic.
2. Please leave a comment on this post answering this question: If I was to do another contest filled with many big titles that aren't coming out till late fall, would you prefer for me to do little giveaways or a big giveaway where I give away all the books to at least 3 winners?

Keep in mind that if I were to do little giveaways if you win once you won't be able to win again in the upcoming giveaways for the other books in the box that I would have otherwise given away in a big giveaway. So if you do win you would win less books, so to speak.

US only (sorry international guys!). Contest ends on June 27th.


  1. I'd prefer giveaways that were for each book. Like, small giveaways. NOt one big one. That way, people would get to choose the books that they might want to win.
    Thanks for this giveaway! Awesome titles :)

  2. I'm good either way when it comes to contest.

  3. I would say smaller more frequent giveaways.

  4. Hmmm, I think 1 big contest would be good. Having 3 winners would mean there's mulitple opportunities to win without all the hassle of multiple giveaways for you.

  5. For that future giveaway, I think a bunch of smaller giveaways would be the way to go. But that's just me. (:

  6. I like larger giveaways where you can win a few books at once.

  7. I think I like the bigger giveaways. Thanks for posting!

  8. I like both types of giveaways. Individual titles ones are great because if a person really wants a specific title then they are sure to enter because it's that title. If it's a multiple title giveaway, it's great because you get introduced to books you might not have heard of or have only had a passing interest in but never actively sought out.

    Admittedly I'm more hesitant to enter prize pack giveaways only because there is often two or more titles in the prize that I already have read. Makes no sense to enter at that point if I've read half the selection...you know what I mean?

  9. This is a really cool giveaway. I haven't read any of these!

  10. Whoops, I completely forgot to answer the question. I think it would be better to have separate giveaways. That way people will have a better chance of at least winning one book.

  11. great giveaway
    follow via gfc

  12. I think 1 big giveaway with a few winners would be great.

  13. I'd go with one big giveaway with three winners.

    Thanks for the giveaway!! :D

  14. I think 1 big giveaway with a few winners would be good

  15. WOW! Hmm, I guess small giveaways are nice to get to more people, but large giveaways to one person is thrilling for that one person. I'm both on this one too :)

    Thank you very much for the massive giveaway! I'd love to share these with my library after I'm done (they have so few new titles nowadays)

    Happy reading!
    (by the way, I love the new design! <--did you get one? I can't remember)

  16. Either type of giveaway is fine with me. Tore923@aol.com

  17. I think the big giveaway who be cool. Go Big or Go Home!

  18. I'd prefere little giveaways..though big giveaways are not bad either. I'm just grateful for generous giveaways .:)

  19. I think I'll go with small giveaways, that way more people get the chance to win :D

  20. I'm fine with either way, but not sure which is better. I haven't done enough giveaways to tell you which will bring the most traffic. I hope you'll share any discoveries you make as you explore this, though!

  21. A big giveaway! Always exciting that way.

  22. I always like more winners, so it gives more people a chance to win something. But however you decide to do it is fine by me.

  23. I know it's more work for you, but I say share the joy. Have lots of small giveaways.

  24. Smaller giveaways that give more people a chance to win.

  25. Smallet giveaways. More chances to win! :)8

  26. I don't really have an opinion either way. But I guess more, smaller contests would be better?

  27. I would say one big giveaway to three winners that way they get a lot of really good books.

    But then again you would get more winners out of smaller ones and i guess that would be better, because you make more people happy.

    so...i say smaller is better lmao

  28. I like both big and small giveaways, but there are pros and cons. Smaller would mean more winners, but a con would be that it would be more work and/or shipping cost for you to send to multiple people, so one big giveaway might be best.

  29. This is tough. The excitement of winning essentially a box of books is pretty tempting! And, I'm sure it would be easier on you too.

    But, in the end I have to vote for small giveaways. I'm sometimes weary of entering large prize pack giveaways because sometimes a handful of the books really don't appeal to me, and I would feel bad if those books were "wasted" on me. Does that make sense?

  30. I would prefer more frequent, small giveaways

  31. This is so hard!!

    But I would say a big one would be better because it would be easier to keep track and if someone forgot the rule of only winning once or actually won 2 because the one of the giveaways ended before the second, it would be annoying to you, for the first situation, and depressing for the winner in the second situation.

  32. This is kind of a hard question... Probably small giveaways.

  33. I follow by e-mail and would love to win this prize! I think I would prefer a big giveaway but all giveaways are fine with me :)

  34. OMFG I dont have words to describe my emotions!!!!!!!!! This is by far the most AWESOME AND AMAZING giveaway I have ever seen! I love all those books in there! House of night I love it! steampunk bah all of them. And well you can do like giving three books because sometimes a big giveaway cant be sad for us if we dont win :)

  35. I love this giveaway! Every single one of these books has me drooling! Thank you for such a nice giveaway!

  36. That is a tough one, because there would be better chances in the smaller giveaways to win, but you could also miss out on winning the one book you would really want. The big giveaway would also be really exciting but only three winners means lesser odds. Ummmm... I would say do the smaller ones, because then everyone can pick the books they want to enter on. If I were to win, I would be excited no matter the book!

  37. I'm good with any type, but I mostly join small giveaways. :) Thanks.

  38. I would prefer smaller giveaways for each book; that way more people have a chance to win something :)

  39. I like the idea of smaller contests. It gives a better chance for more people to win! :)

  40. Thank you for this chance to win I like both ways .Have a great weekend

  41. I like the bigger giveaways! That way you can win more than one book. Thanks.
    -Maritza R

  42. I like when multiple winners get something.

  43. While I love the idea of a big giveaway--who doesn't want all those books in one contest?--I think smaller giveaways are better because they allow more opportunities for more people to win.

    Thanks for the contest!

  44. I would prefer small giveaways, but both rock.

  45. This is a fantastic giveaway, but I think having the smaller ones more often would be more fun. People would have more of a chance to win.

  46. I think either one is okay, though big giveaways are fun!

  47. I think any giveaway is great! Whatever is easiest for you. Thanks for the chance.

  48. I think I'd prefer a lot of small giveaways

  49. What a cool giveaway! -Nichole

  50. I'm always a fan of smaller giveaways. Then more people are able to get something! Always nice. :)
