What Kind of Book Giveaway Would You Enter?

What kind of giveaway would you usually enter? Have you had luck with winning book giveaways?
A quick one today about a giveaway, since I’m still working on the edits for the sequel to THE BLUE BAR.
I’ve entered many giveaways as a reader, but ever since the publication of YOU BENEATH YOUR SKIN, I’ve been at the other end: I now organize giveaways.
Not only do I give away books via my Reading Gazette (subscribe now if you haven’t), I also hold a giveaway or two on my social media from time to time. This week, in celebration of my birthday and Diwali, I’ve collaborated with an author friend, Priyanka Taslim, for a double ARC giveaway!

Her romance novel THE LOVE MATCH and my literary crime with romance elements, THE BLUE BAR, both feature South Asian representation.

πŸ“˜The Blue Bar : In gritty, glam Mumbai, a police inspector and a bar girl in love are unaware the same predator is watching them both.πŸ”ͺ❀️

πŸ“™ The Love Match: In this YA romcom, a Bangladeshi-American teen fake-dates the match arranged for her while crushing on another boyβ€”but starts falling for both! β˜•οΈ

If you’d like to snag these paperback ARCs, you can enter the giveaway here on twitter, and here, on instagram. We welcome giveaway entries on both social media, and it is open internationally. 29th is the last day for entries, so rush them in!
And if you’re on Facebook, I’d urge you to join the Tattered Page Book Club ( The founders have appeared on this site) for Thanksgiving Giveaways.
What about you? What kind of giveaway would you usually enter? Have you had luck with winning book giveaways?
My lit crime novel, The Blue Bar will be out soon with Thomas & Mercer. It is already available for preorders. Add it to Goodreads or pre-order it to make my day.
