Christmas Come Early - The Biggest Giveaway

Earlier today I confessed to earning a little bit of money with my blogging. I also have a glut of ARCs that I have received in duplicate from various publishers. To me, the obvious solution is to spend a little bit of my spoils on a big old giveaway - share the book love, as it were.

As you'll see, the books come from a variety of different publishers - thereby showing my impartiality *grin*

I am giving away five random bundles. If you want one, please leave a comment stating which one you want and why. Please provide some way of contacting you in your comment so that I can get in touch when the giveaway ends. I will randomise all the people who enter for a particular bundle and there will be one winner for each bundle. Five winners altogether. You can ask for more than one bundle, but please make it very clear which you are asking for in your comment. This is open WORLDWIDE (like I say, sharing the love!) This giveaway will end on 1st December (so plenty of time to enter and pass the word along about it), and that way your bundle - should you be lucky enough to win - will arrive as an early Christmas present!

So, a recap:

1. Drool over the pictures below.

2. Choose your bundle(s).

3. Leave me a comment stating which you want & why!

4. Give me some means of contacting you...

5. Sit back with fingers and toes crossed.

6. Bless me for being a giving Christmas book fairy *grin*

  1. What an excellent idea! I'd love bundle #5 because I've wanted to read Ms. Carriger's work for sometime. Thanks!

    kanonei (at) gmail (dot) com

  2. I would be highly intersted in bundle 2 or 3. I've always wanted to read more steam punk so bundle 2 appeals heavily although I love fantasy. I'm an aspiring author nearly halfway through my first novel and also working on learning how to blog about books. I've started my own book review blog and follow you to get good ideas on how to do it. Being new I still don't get any ARC's so I can only do my reviews on books I go and buy personally, which is a pain to do;as I'm sure you know. Thanks

  3. Bundle 5 please! I've heard lots of good things about Soulless which I'm dying to read! And I love Christmas fairies^^ Fingers crossed!


  4. I would love to win bundle #2. I've had Boneshaker on my wishlist for a really long time and I can't wait to read it!


  5. Hard to choose since each one contains some interesting reads but I pick #2 because Boneshaker is one book I know I HAVE to read!
    Thanks for sharing your books!

  6. Oh, so many great books... but my pick would be BUNDLE 3, as they're ALL on my 'want to read' list, and I've read (and loved) at least one book in each of the others.

  7. I'm in for #2, because I want to definitely read Boneshaker & The King's Bastard.

    And I deserve a gift of four books, b/c I'm a student!

  8. I'd love to win bundle #1

    what a great offer

  10. OMG what a giveaway! Firstly, thank you for the chance to enter.

    Secondly, I'd pretty much love any of the bundles - I've spotted a couple of books on my wishlist in each one so should I be lucky enough to win I'd love any of them.


    p.s sorry for the previous deletion, forgot to mention I can be contacted via my email addy in my profile :)

  11. I'd love bundle 2.
    Because I've heard about all the authors, and is curious, but never gotten around to reading anyone of them.

    I think you know how to get in touch with me :-p

  12. Bundle one, please(except for book number four because, obviously, I am book number four, and have no use for extra MEs.)

    I have a starving author to support and books are very nutritious, especially on toast.

    Carpet's quite nice too, apparently.

  13. Thanks for the opportunity!
    Awesome selection, its hard to choose!

    So.... Bundle 5 please. Because I haven't read any of Gail Garriger books and they sound so quirky.


  14. I would like a chance for #3 because they all have nice covers.

  15. I'd love to try my hand and Bundles #1 and #2. I've heard enough good things about China MiƩville to lust for his craft, and I really like Cherie Priest's shenanigans. I'm sure either bundle is made of awesome powder!

  16. I would very much love to be put in the hat for bundle #1, because I'm a starving author and avid bookworm doing seasonal work at an warehouse, and keep seeing copies of Kraken, which is on my wanna-read list. The other three in that bundle look intriguing as well.

  17. Great giveaway! While all the bundles have at least one book that I want to read, bundle 2 has three books that I've really been wanting to read and the fourth book sounds great as well so I'd love to be entered for that one.


  18. I would love Bundle #4 for my youngest daughter - I'm very fortunate in that she shares my love of books and this would make a very beautiful gift from "Santa" for her.

    thankyou for sharing!

    Happy to be contacted at iancollings at

  19. hmmm, they all look great, how about bundle 1. Stay home dad always looking for more books to read during naptime!

  20. Bundle #1 please. I don't have Kraken yet and love me some Mieville!

    You can contact me through my website or on twitter @jasonmichelsen


  21. OH MAN. Bundle 3! I have been thinking about getting ALL of those and I am desperate to read Black Lung Captain. So desperate it's almost not funny. Also, I have been meaning to try some Barclay for a while, and I haven't had the money for The Thief Taker's Apprentice yet, and Gregory Maguire is another name I keep looking at. So yes. Bundle 3!

    Ewa S-R (sending hugs too)

  22. This comment has been removed by the author.

  23. I would love either Bundle #3 or #5 - Gregory Maguire is an author I've been wanting to read for quite some time, and the other 3 books in that bundle all look fascinating. Gail Carriger is another author that's been intriguing me, so #5 is also quite appealing.

    What a fun idea!

    (My email is on my blog profile - forgot to mention that the first time around.)

  24. Ooh, Bundle 3 looks awesome! I like what I've read of Deas's work so far, and I think my roommate would just love "Elves Once Walked With Gods" based on the title alone!

    Email is jazriyah(at)gmail(dot)com

  25. ooh i love bundle three, really keen to read elves once walked with gods but the others look great too

    twannywun at hotmail dot com

  26. I'd like bundle 5 because I''d love to read Gail Garringer's books...


  27. I'm really torn between bundle 2 and bundle 5. But of the two I think I'd choose bundle 2. 4 author's I've never read but want to. I'd love to discover a new book or author I love!


  28. Bundle #5, because I've heard nothing but good things about Ms. Carriger's books, and would love to check them out. Thanks for the opportunity!


  29. I would really like to win Bundle 5. I've heard so many good things about Gail Carringer's Parasol Protectorate novels and The Poison Throne by Celine Kiernan. What a great giveaway!


  30. I would love Bundle 3 please! I've heard a lot about James Barclay, and I loved Gregory Maguire's other works!
    Bless you for being a giving Christmas book fairy! 8D


  31. This comment has been removed by the author.

  32. So hard to choose! I would love to be entered for bundles 1, 2 & 3 please. All those bundles contain books I've been meaning to get hold of for some time now.


  33. BUNDLE 5!

    i've been dying to read Betrayls ever since i finished strange angels but am losing hope that my cousin will ever remember to lend me her copy and i've been eyeing the Gail Carriger books for some time now, so The Poison Throne would be an epic bonus. plus i never win stuff so i'm wishing on the book fairy magic!


  34. Whoah! They are all so amazing! Bundles two or three are best. Bundle two if I really need to choose. :P


  35. I'd love to be entered for Bundle 5. I'd like to read Changeless and own Soulless for myself after borrowing it from a friend to read. I also wanted to add that I think it's great you're having such a huge giveaway and sending internationally :)

    irisonbooks [at] gmail [dot] com

  36. Bundle 3 please! I'm dying to read The Thief-Taker's Apprentice and by pure chance it's in the only bundle of books where I haven't read any of the titles at all!!

    No-one ever buys me books for Christmas anymore because they say 'it's too hard now you're grown up' - which I think is just an excuse. It would be great to have a Christmas bundle to tuck into whilst everyone else is sleeping off their dinner!!

    I'm @caroleheidi on Twitter :)

  37. Awesome giveaway!

    Would love to win bundle #5. I absolutely love Steampunk, so Gail Carriger's books have been on my wishlist for quite a while now. Also heard lots of good things about The Poison Throne and The Strange Angel series.

    Thank you Christmas book fairy :)


  38. Ooh! Bundle number 1 for me. I'm a writer, reader and lover of all things bookish and can provide them with a stable and loving home. :)

  39. I love this idea! Bundle 2 for me!

  40. Oh you're such a great Christmas Elf :D I'd love to be entered for bundle number 2 please :)
    Those are books that are all on my wish list and I'd love to get my hands on them :D

    And you know where to find me!

  41. What a nice idea.

    I would like to try and win bundle 1 please. This is because I have heard lots of good things about China Mieville but have never read any of his books and Cursed is also on my want list plus the other two books look good as well !

  42. Very generous indeed!

    I'd love Bundle #2, because I've wanted to read Boneshaker for ages and doubt I'll get around to it otherwise!

    (am on Twitter, so rather than posting my email address here, let me know if I've won and I'll give you details)

  43. I'd like bundle #3 as I like Stephen Deas and I want to read Black Lung Captain. Plus as I'm in Portsmouth I can collect and there be no postage - aharrrr!

  44. This is amazingly generous of you, I love book giveaways!

    I can't decide between bundles 1 or 2 though. They both include books by writers I've been meaning to read but just haven't gotten around to yet. I've heard so many good things about China MiƩville for example, it's quite embarrassing to not yet have read anything. You could save me from public ridicule! On the other hand I have a friend who has been buzzing about "Farlander" and it would just kill him to know I have an early copy :D

    You could say it's your choice between good or evil: Save me from social ostracism or aid me in my sinister plans to taunt a dear acquaintance. ;D

  45. How can I possibly choose?!? Okay, if I must...bundle #5 please. Thanks! Karen

    Please contact me on twitter: @flemingkaren

  46. Oh, this is SO great :) Bundle #2: TOR Books, Boneshaker, steampunk... thanks

  47. Bundle 1 for me. I've been wanting to read Kraken and haven't gotten around to getting it.


  48. Wow, awesome selection! I think #1 appeals the most to me. Would love to win some books for the holidays.


  49. Would love bundle 3 to help me look forward to the train journey into work!

  50. Wow! This is so cool.. I'd love to get my hands on Bundle 2. I'm really interested in reading Boneshaker, but I'm reticent to spend cash on physical books anymore.. I'd rather have an electronic copy, but they're all DRM infected.. *sigh* I'm not opposed to a free copy, though! :)

    Contact me via twitter! @xenophage

  51. Wow fantastic give away and thanks for making it international. I would have to pick Bundle No 5 because, like so many others in these comments I've wanted to try Gail Carriger's books for ages - except I've wanted it more than the others (honest!)

    Thanks again

  52. Tough choices! However, bundle #2 has my pupils dilating. So, definitely, bundle #2. Twitter contact: @JReaHedrick

  53. Great I'm always looking for some books to review on my blog. BUNDLE 2 please.

  54. BLESS YOUR LITTLE HEART for offering this. I would love to win bundle #5, I love 'Steampunk" and have been reading a lot of good things about Gail Carriger's books.

  55. Such a great idea! Always nice to spread the happiness of books! :)

    I'd love to be in the draw for either bundle 2 or 3 - they both look like they have some fantasy book and I've been focussed on Urban Fantasy rather than classic recently - I could use a quest or orphan boy makes good story for a change!

  56. Wow, awesome giveaway. Sign me up for Bundle #2

    we-todd-did [at] hotmail [dot] com

  57. Bundle 2 or 3.
    Great contest!

  58. Ooh. I'd love to win Bundle #1 or #2 (Preferably #1). I've never read any Mieville and would like the opportunity to do so.

    logankstewart {at} gmail{dot} com

    Thank you!

  59. I would like to get bundle 2 or 3, I've just started getting back into fantasy after a decade long foray into science fiction and I have some catching up to do. I'm also a big fan of Tor and Gollancz. Anyway, Merry Christmas!

  60. Oh. WOW. This is irresistible. Please count me in. I'd love to win bundle #1 or #2.

    carianmoonlight at gmail dot com

  61. I would like bundles two or three
    For i think they will help me see
    A new and enjoyable part of life
    That can live exclusively inside of me is how i may be found
    i wait in anticipation without a sound

    : )

  62. I would like bundle 5 or bundle 2. They have the most interesting looking books among them, although to be honest, every bundle has something appealing in it.

  63. Maybe third time lucky with commenting. I'd like to vie for Bundle 1 please: been wanting to read Kraken.

    I am @tonylinde on twitter.

  64. Hi, great giveaway :)

    I'm interested in bundles 2 and 3 (but especially 2 beacuse I'm dying to get my hands on Farlander and plus if I get bundle 2 I promise to give away Boneshaker quite promptly as I've already read it)


  65. I would like to have any one of the bundles, because I would read them first and then take them to work where I would let the juveniles I work with read them. They read alot the books I buy personally.


  66. I'd love 1, 4, or 5. Amazing giveaway!!!

    lauren51990 AT aol DOT com

  67. I would like bundle 1 please. Of course I'd be happy with any of them! :D Bundle one doesn't have any books I've read so I'd be entered to win that one if I can't be entered to win any of them.


  68. Please, pretty please, send me Bundle #3!! I have wanted all four of those books for some time now, and this would be a great Christmas present. Despite my pleas, the Mrs. and my parents think books don't make good Christmas presents, so I never get what I really want. Any money I'd like to spend on books goes to private school tuition for my two kids, because our public schools are so bad....but my kindergartener is already learning to read and enjoying my beat up copies of "The Book of Three" so he's already catching the fantasy bug, which makes it all worth it---but I can't help wanting to read books of my own. Please send them my way. Thanks.

    email -

  69. Ohhh.. bundle #1. The UK cover for Kraken is so much more exciting then the bland US one. I think bland cover is one of the reasons I haven't picked it up yet(that and the towering to be read stack). Also, I haven't read any of the books in that bundle.
    pilarscott at yahoo dot com

  70. I love Christmas in November! Bundle 3 looks awesome! I have been itching to read the new Deas book and the second in Woodings new series (I live in the US so I have to wait). In addition I just saw Wicked and have been meaning to read something by Maguire. Thanks for sharing!

  71. I'd love bundle #2. There's two books there that I want to read (and I still haven't bought) and two that look interesting.

    Thanks for doing this!


  72. I'd like bundle 2 as I am a fan of Kearney'w after recently reading the Monarchies of God series

  73. I'm lucky enough to have most of these -- so no entry for me. But I had to chime in and compliment you on such a great giveaway!

  74. I would like Bundle3 because I'm a cloistered epic fantasy writer that doesn't get out much.

    It would be very helpful to me to read some of what is considered "popular" in the genre so I have a better idea what readers are looking for in a fantasy novel. If 3 is not available any medieval fantasy will due to aid in my research. You can contact me through my website if I get one.

    Here's to a Merry Christmas...

  75. I'd like bundle #1, for The Kraken & The Nemesis List

    Bundle#2 well for all of them, especially for the Kearney

    Bundle #3, especially for Black Lung Captain

  76. I would love to win either bundle 2, 3, or 5. They each have books that I have been wanting to read, but do not as yet - have. Hopefully I will win one bundle! Thanks for sharing your books by hosting - great Christmas idea!

  77. This comment has been removed by the author.

  78. What an awesome idea and what great books!

    I'd love Bundle 1 because those are all books I've been meaning to read for quite some time now.

  79. Bundle 4 or 5, please. Actually, I'd love to win any of them but those two are the ones with most books on my to-be-bought-and-read list.
    Thank you for such an awesome giveaway, and thank you for making it available everywhere. :)


  80. I'd love to win Bundle 2! Boneshaker and The Ten Thousand are definitely on my to read list!

    Thank You!

  81. I'd like bundle #2 if only for Black Lung Captain!

  82. Sod it that should be bundle #3!!


  83. This comment has been removed by the author.

  84. Hi!

    Great giveaway.

    I select bundle number 4!

    I'm a big ol' fan of Jonathan Stroud and would really be tickled to recieve his latest! I've also been wanting to give the Skulduggery Pleasant books a go. The Hamilton book would go to my wife. She's a pretty big fan of her books.

    Thanks! And Merry Christmas :)

  85. I'm slightly worried about the competition on here now. I've decided to offer a bribe of some slightly chewed carpet, one dislodged tooth and something which may or may not be a Murray Mint (attached to tooth and carpet.)

    Please help starving authors and their gums.

  86. What a giveaway!

    I'd love either of Bundles 1 or 4.

  87. Bundle #2 and #3 for me!


  88. I would be interested in Bundle 2, because the titles in there call out to the inner steampunk that is inside me! Mix magic and Technology any day and let the imagination run wild!

    contact: redalth(at)gmail(dot)com

  89. I would love to have bundle#5. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  90. I want #5 because the Gail Carringer books are on my wishlist.


  91. I would love to have Bundle # 2. Boneshaker and The Ten Thousand are at the top of my to read list. Bundle # 1 also looks awesome I really like China Mieville and would love to read Kraken.


  92. I would like bundle #3.
    I have finished chris woodings Retribution falls.
    Great book, would love Black Lung Captain by Chris Wooding (which is not available in the US yet).

  93. I'd like bundle #1 because I've been wanting an excuse to read something of Mieville's for ages, and with christmas around the corner, it would be great to have a copy of Strange Angels to give as a gift to spread my love of that series!

    I'm on Twitter at @libertyfallsdown

  94. I would like either bundle 1 (first choice) or bundle 2. Bundle 1 because I would love to own a copy of Kraken. I loved that book and have since been reading a bunch of Mieville stuff. Bundle 2 because there are some books that I can't find here in the US yet and would like to read.

    ruthann AT cygnature DOT com

  95. Hi I would love bundles 3 & 4 - 3 would be for me as they are right up my street and bundle 4 because my daughter wants to read the Skullduggery books.
    Have retweeted as @Bobbity666 and following your blog with fingers (and toes) crossed.

  96. I'd love bundle "must read" list would be assisted no end by these titles! After reading them I'd share them amongst my avid book reading family! @wendymcd83

  97. Bundle 1, please.
    The Mieville is very high on the must read, but don't have list, the starship on the Frith looks cool, and I have never tried Lili St.Crow, yet.
    If I win, you can reach me at goetzreads at gmail

  98. What a great early christmas for somebody! Thanks! I would also like to sign up for bundle 3. The Deas and the Wooding look and sound very interesting and Barclay is almost always good.
    I do wonder how you put the bundles together. As I have some books from the other bundles (I dolike Boneshaker, thought the Bartimaeus trilogy was the best answer to Harry Potter, felt that the Carriger didn't live up to the hype...) I am not going for those bundles, even though there is nice stuff there.
    Please only select me if you want to send books to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. goetzreads at gmail

  99. Bundle #3 is BRILLIANT! Any book with a title like BLACK LUNG CAPTAIN has to be good!

    michael (at) seewhatsinmybrain (dot) com

  100. I would love to win bundle #1 for myself or #2 to give to my husband. The #1 bundle seems like more my type and #2 more my husband's type.

  101. Cool idea!
    I would like to be entered for bundle 2. I've heard that boneshaker is meant to be a great book and Farlander would make a cool gift for my little brother who loves these sorts of books.
    The ten thousand and the king's bastard have cool covers and sound like they're a good read.

    (good luck to me :)

    you can contact me at:

  102. I would really love to enter for bundle 2, its most in the vein of epic/military fantasy; which is like my epic love, plus steampunk(boneshaker) a subgenre I haven't really had a taste of yet!
    Heard alot about Farlander and The Ten Thousand, which I somehow haden't got around to buying.

    The Fantasizer

  103. I'd love bundle 3 or 4: 3, because because of the book titled "Black Lung Captain", and 4 because I've been dying to read Derek Landy's work. :)

  104. Hi !
    I would like to enter for bundles 1, 4 and 5.

    Bundle 1 has a book by China Mieville, and i've loved everything he has write so far !

    In Bundle 4 is a book of the Bartimaeus series, and i've heard it is quite good !

    Finally, i'm curious about Gail Garriger books - steampunk but different from other books of the same genre.

    And here's my e-mail -
    acrisalves AT gmail DOT com


  105. I would love a chance at bundle number 1! Why? Because I'm interested to see the quality of R J Frith's book after winning the war of the words competition and I am most curious to compare the suction between a kraken's tentacles and a dyson.

    You can contact me at:
    elfinbow AT hotmail DOT com

    Thanks and keep up the good work with your blog!

  106. Wow! This is a great giveaway. Makes me wish I'd done this with the dozens of fantasy books I moved on last year to make room for more! Anyway - next time. For now, though they all look great, I'd love to be entered for #s 2, 3, 5 please.
    Buchanan, Kearney and Daniels are all on my wish list, and I find Barclay fascinating (and love the sound of the thief-takers apprentice too). For group 5 I particularly like the sound of the poison throne. I would happily read of the books.
    Thanks for your generousity and I hope santa brings you a pile more too! Contact via the blog or hannah at hasmissions dot co dot uk

  107. Hi Amanda,

    Awesome contest... I'd like to participate for bundle #3 or #5. And... you'll be glad to know I'm offering you the chance to ship to Belgium! ;)

    Kindest regards,

  108. That's one hell of a give away!

    I'd love to get my hands on Bundle #2 which edges ahead of bundle #1 because I've already got Kraken. I've been meaning to pick up Cherie Priest for absolutely ages but just haven't gotten around to it despite that fact that with it being an alternate history its practically in my mandate to read it!

    Also, the other three books have caught my eye on more than one occasion and this would significantly increase the chances of me getting around to reading them in the next 10 years.

    You can contact me via the blog, twitter (@laughablefellow) or e-mail: G dot R dot Morgan at hotmail dot co d0t uk (isn't it a shame we have to be so SPAM paranoid!)

  109. Bundle 1 or 3 would be great.

    Thats if its open to Agnostics Atheist's who dont celebrate Xmas. Maybe I will make an exception this year with these lovely books.

    sblakeley [at] gmail [dot] com

  110. What a great giveaway and thanks for making it international!

    I would choose Pack 5, all of those books really appeal.

    bookd.out at gmail dot com

  111. Number 1, please! Because I really want to read Kraken, and also it is the only bundle where I don't already have one or more of the books. Thank you so much for doing this!

    grumpyrumblings at gmail dot com

  112. This comment has been removed by the author.

  113. I'd love to go in the hat for Bundle #1. 'Kraken' is on my 'must read bt don't yet have' list, and the other three look interesting and are none of them books I already have.

    Pretty sure you can click on my name to get my profile but if not I am contactable via twitter as @Marjorie73.

    What a lovely, and generous, idea.

  114. Picking between these bundles is like deciding which type of apocalypse you would prefer; each one has its obvious benefits (zombies are slow), but they could come back to bite you in the long run (walk?)

    If I had to pick though... Bundle 1. would be a delightfully weird treat.

  115. They all look so good . . . maybe bundle #5 as I am dying to read Soulless and Changeless.

    baychriz at gmail dot com

  116. I'd love to win bundle 2. Boneshaker has been on my list for quite a while, and the other titles look just as intriguing. You can reach me at the email address on my profile:^)

  117. Hi, I'm Gaspar, from Portugal (, an avid reader of Graeme Flory's blog, which lead me here. From your five bundles, i must admit the only one who has a writer known to me is the first bundle (i'm more a Science Fiction reader...). The author is China Mieville,a fantastic writer, and having all of his books except Kraken, i would love to read it! Of course, if i win it, i'll read also the other ones, it's a promise!!!

  118. I would love Bundle 2 - all four books are on my TBR list but Boneshaker and Farlander are also on my Hanukah wishlist.

    I'm actually a follower but was sent here by Graeme. Thanks, Graeme!

    eshchory AT gmail DOT com

  119. Bundle 5 please. I'm dying to read the Soulless series esp. after a review said the heroine was Amelia Peabody-esque. V generous giveaway, thanks.


  120. Dang, quite a giveaway. So hard to choose between the bundles, so many awesome books! I would like to enter for:

    Bundle 1

  122. Would love Bundle #4

    I don't get much reading done other than my college textbooks. Would love a chance to read some of these :)

  123. I would love bundle 5, but I wouldn't be disappointed with bundle 1... ;)

    Thanks so much for making it international!


  124. Oooh, you are so generous! Thanks for this great giveaway, and for making it international!

    I'm going for Bundle #2. I'm dying to read Boneshaker but it's not in my library yet and I'm banned from buying any more books. The other books I don't know but I like to broaden my reading experience.

  125. Wow ! A lot of entries.

    I would really like bundle #1 as I have been trying to get around to buying Ktaken by China Mieville but haven't yet.

    Thanks so much for opening it to worldwide entries.

    Much appreciated.

  126. What a fantastic use of lots of extras.
    I would be interested in bundle 3 namely because there is nothing out at the moment by my favourite authors and I need some new names to play with or how else can I spend more money?

  127. Wow! This is a great giveaway! I would love to be entered into bundle 5! Mainly because I have been wanting to read Garriger's work for awhile! My toes and feet are now crossed. Thanks again!

  128. Any of the bundles would be great, but if I have to pick one, I'll go with #1. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  129. Any of the bundles, I am not picky just a book fantatic... Best one though looks like Bundle 1 simply cause it's got that ol' china Mieville. ;)

  130. I would like to be considered for bundle 2 or 3 as they both look like the kind of thing I'm into, I love Fantasy and Steampunk stuff!

    The reason I should be considered is because I don't do all that much book reading anymore, this would be a perfect excuse to get back into it.


  131. I would like Bundle 2 please as they look pretty.
    You didn't say you wanted in depth reasoning!

  132. Hi What a generous giveaway Bundle 4 please for me.



  133. I would love to be entered for Bundles #5 and #1. I have not read any of the books you are offering, they look awesome so I am quite excited!
    (Ok, out of the subject, but can one really cross his toes??)

  134. What an amazing giveaway! Hard choice among the bundles but bundle 2 is definitely the one I really REALLY want. It contains 3 books that are already in my To-Buy list. Buchanan and Kearney are two writers that I have really wanted to read but had not the chance until now. Hopefully I'll get it this christmas!

    oh and ofcourse.... thank you sooooo much!

  135. Bundle #1 because I absolutely must read Kraken. Mieville and squid in the same book? Yes!

    You can find me on twitter @steampunkcom.

  136. Honestly, all those bundles are books I WANT WANT WANT.

    I'm gonna go with bundle 3 since it's the only bundle without a book I've already read. :D

    WEEE! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  137. Bundle 2, for definite. Mostly for Boneshaker, admittedly, but The King's Bastard is a temptation, too. Does that count as a reason? I fear that it might be lacking a little... How about because once I've read, it I can pass it on to my son to help fuel further his current interest in Steampunk; thus ensuring that he eventually builds an elegant time machine?

  138. Bundle 2 please! I am intrigued by the Boneshaker alternative universe idea.
