Step 1: wander the poetry section of the school library. 
Step 2: pull anything that looks interesting because you don’t read nearly enough poetry. 

(Also Persepolis 2 because I haven’t had the chance to read it yet)

All right, friends, I’m not fancy so this won’t be fancy. I have way more copies of Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo than one person should probably have. And this one in particular needs a loving home. It’s the paperback & never been touched and I would love to send it off to someone who hasn’t yet experienced this magic. 
So, giveaway rules are super simple:
You don’t have to be following me (but that’d be cool if you did! I’m relatively not lame sometimes) 
One like & one reblog counts (because I really hate when people spam giveaways soooo) 
You have to be comfortable with giving me your address, obviously. I promise I won’t start sending you weird letters or anything (unless you’d like that… I could comply…) 
I’ll give it until April 1st (but I’ll draw on the 2nd so that you guys actually believe that I’m doing this. Not an April Fool’s joke.)
i don’t think anyone needs convincing, but I do think a lot of people think these tumblr giveaways aren’t real. Guys. I really don’t need two US paperbacks. Someone give this the love I shall never bestow upon it. It deserves it.
