Philippine Mega Summer Giveaway! Win six books and a Fully Booked giftcard!


As a blogger hailing from the lovely islands of the Philippines, I wanted to be closer to my fellow Filipino bookworms, and I thought one of the best ways to do that was to hold a HUGE Philippine-exclusive giveaway! I mean, come on, who doesn’t get excited about free books?! Also, the fact remains that it’s mid-March already, and we all know the sun’s about to come blazing through, so why not spend it with a new book in your hand ? It would be an awesome way to meet the summer of the year! And you know what’s even more awesome? The fact that we have SEVEN prizes to give away to SEVEN winners, made possible by a collaboration between The Social Potato and Fully Booked. Here are the stuff you can win:



A PhP300 Fully Booked Giftcard!!!

Seven great prizes, for seven awesome people!

How will we do this then?


We will have one rafflecopter giveaway thing-o. Seven winners will be announced. In a free entry, you must specify the order of prizes you want the most. If you’re chosen first out of the seven winners, your 1st choice will be your prize. If you’re chosen second, and your 1st prize has been chosen, the succeeding one will be your prize. If you’re chosen fourth, your first choice can still be given as long as it hasn’t been chosen by the first three winners.

Please keep in mind you must have a Fully Booked store near you or you have access to one.
The prizes will be picked up by you at the branch of your choice.

The rules!!!

    I want Panic by Lauren Oliver the most because the Delirium trilogy is one of my favorites, and I’ve been looking forward to Panic for a long while now but I still haven’t gotten the chance to buy it. I really want to check it out.

    Thanks for the giveaway! xx

  2. Neil Franz says

    Yay. A very great giveaway! I want Panic so badly ’cause it is intriguing. And I read good reviews about it. Thanks for the giveaway anyway. :)

  3. Kanoko says

    The GC would be great because: freedom of choice. :p Honestly, the titles here aren’t my usual thing (as you probably already know, Faye) so would rather play safe and be greedy. Haha.

    Thanks for the giveaway, The Social Potato, Fully Booked.

  4. says

    Hi Faye! It’s so nice of you to have a book giveaway. I want Steelheart the most because I’m looking for a good sci-fi dystopian book and I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about this.

  5. says

    This giveaway is awesome! :)))) I would really like to win the GC because I can get to choose/buy books from Fullybooked. And Fullybooked is like heaven on earth for me. I hope I win! ;) And thanks for this giveaway. God bless you and more power :*

  6. says

    I really want to read The School for Good and Evil. Aside from that cool cover, the synopsis also sounds like something I would definitely enjoy. Also dying to read Steelheart. Everyone says Brandon Sanderson books are great but I haven’t read anything of his yet. I do have them in my TBR list though.

    Thanks for this giveaway! Happy summer ;)

    The Chaos of Stars actually makes me curious and it looks like a good read too! Thank you for this giveaway, goodreads brought me here. :D

  8. Elaine Vizcarra says

    Hi! i would really love to have The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani, i’ve seen a lot of good reviews about it and i really think that the cover is very lovely. Thanks for this chance!

  9. says

    Hi Faye! Nice to be here again. I hope you still remember me. Steelheart was my first choice. I almost download a free version of it on Audible if not because of this credit card thing, rather than that I heard lots of good things about Sanderson. Thanks for the giveaway! Happy reading!

    Hi there! i got here over from goodreads. Thank you for this awesome giveaway :) If i get lucky I want to win the Into the Blue book. I plan to see Ms. Rossi during her book signing event here in the Phils so I hope this would complete my series. The GC is a great bonus too! perhaps i get to buy another book that I like :)

  11. Godwin Cantre says

    This is a really great giveaway! :D It’s really benevolent of you to sponsor a give away this BIG, and especially in the Philippines. I hope you’ll have a lot of fun in this one. :D

  12. Kaye says

    Thank you for this awesome chance to win great books/prizes! I’m not lucky with raffle but I wanted to try anyway. XD

    I listed STEELHEART as my first choice because, aside from a lot of positive reviews from readers and bloggers, I personally found it appealing the moment my eyes landed its cover and moving on with the blurb. I’ve never read a superhero novel before, so I believe this book will be the best choice to venture to a different genre. :)

  13. says

    Thanks for this giveaway! I would love to own Brandon Sanderson’s Steelheart. I’ve read it last year via ebook. And I was taken away by the story. Brandon was successful in making a new world and letting the readers feel they’re actually involved in the sotry and not just reading a novel. The novel was fast-paced and it didn’t even make me take my lunch because I can’t put it down. The ending totally blew me off. And owning a physical copy of the book would mean the world to me :)

  14. Crystal Santiago says

    I really want the 300 php giftcheck so that I can buy the book that I want. But i want also the books listed here because I havent read all of those books

  15. says

    I want all of them!! But my first choice is The School for Good and Evil. A friend of mine recommends it, like seriously! And I want to know if her exaggerations (I love you, friend) live up to the book :3

    And I would like to win… pretty please? As a graduation gift to me :3
    Yeah, sorry, I’m shameless :))

    Thanks for this awesomeness!!

  16. Bryann james almeda says

    I really would love to win steelheart since ove heard good reviews about it and i also think that the story is interesting as its cover. And i also love the school of good and evil which i havent got the chance to buy since i cant seem to see it in Our local fb store. Dayum. :) nice giveaway by the way! :)

  17. Pauline says

    Hi thanks for this giveaway!! I hope I win Chaos of Stars!! Sorry I don’t have a blog website :(( Good luck and God Bless!! Hope you have a successful givewaay! Thanks for the chance :)

  18. Eriel Micabani says

    This is an awesome giveaway! It was hard for me to choose what prize I wanted the most. I ended up choosing the Php 300 giftcard so I may choose something that I like. I’m not saying I didn’t like the books you listed here, in fact, I want to read all of them. Haha.

  19. Anj Garcia says

    Thanks for this awesomazing summer giveaway :D I would love to win the fully booked gc, but the books are great too. I haven’t read them yet and i’ve heard great reviews about them so i don’t mind winning a copy. :)

  20. Thomas says

    First of all, A REALLY BIG THANK YOU to Faye (The Social Potato) for holding this mega summer giveaway. For about 5 months, I am craving for Brandon Sandersons’ Steelheart because most people in goodreads gave it good reviews and if it has good reviews why not own it?

    Hoping to become one of the winners of this giveaway.


  21. Jenny says

    Thanks so much for this giveaway. I would so love to win the copy of Into the Blue Sky and the Fully Booked GC! I really do hope the odds will be in my favor. Glad to stumble to your blog and find amazing stuff! Keep up the awesome posts! :)

  22. Kevin Facun says

    I really think spending the summer with books is the coolest possible way to spend it. And with this give away, every bibliophile would drool just to win a date of a lifetime with these unique and exciting books. For me, The Chaos of Stars would enchant me if ever given the chance to win. It is a kind of thing that will definitely move the reader about the true essence of love and family. The other 5 books are as lovely as the latter though. Anything would be just perfect including the GC. Thanks for the opportunity anyways.

  23. Philipp Desquitado says

    As much as I love the book choices, winning the 300 GC will be the best choice for me since I’m more into poetry and other genres. Keeping my fingers crossed. Woot!

  24. Danna says

    Hi! Thank you so much for this giveaway! I would really love to win a copy of Lauren Oliver’s “Panic”. I’ve been seeing it lately but I haven’t got a chance to have my own copy. I wish you could help me with that. But if you happen to pick someone for that already, I’ll gladly accept whatever’s left. Thanks again! :)

  25. says

    Hello there! Thanks for this giveaway.
    Actually, this is the first giveaway I have ever joined in my entire life. Not a lucky one in the raffles I have experienced, I hope that this time the odds are in my favor. If I were given the chance, I love to win a copy of Steelheart. Everytime I go in bookstores, I’d go along just to read the back cover plot over and over again (i think for a million times?!!) Haha!
    Again, my sincerest thanks for this opportunity and long live to all the bookworms out there! :)

  26. Christine Anne Pastoral says

    Hi! Thank you for this giveaway. You will surely make the winners very very happy and hoping I will be one of them. Hahaha! =) Among the prizes, I would choose the Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. This was my Christmas wish last year but I was unable to buy it. :( I really really want it because I like action and adventure stories since this book has “heroes” in it. So, I would be glad if I win this book and dive into their world. :)

  27. yen says

    i want the evertrue coz my friend recomended it to me that it has a nice plot. something that i would definitely love to read

  28. Marian says

    It’s very kind to do this you know, giving free books to people haha. Well anyways, I’ve always wanted to finish Into The Still Blue. I remember that time when I borrowed that from a library and I wasn’t permitted to borrow it because the librarian said it was a temporary book lent by a student. I always visit the library and go home late, maybe 5 or 6 instead of 4, because I was so in to that book. But one day, I found out that the book is gone, because the owner already transferred to a diff. school. :(

  29. Kathryn Puyat says

    Hi :) I really love to read and I hope that I win because summer is near and my goal is to finish tons of books.

  30. Krizia says

    I think “The Chaos of Stars” would be on top of my list ’cause I’m not that into series, it’s kind of hard for me to keep track of it :) Also, March is nearly over and I’m desperate for some new books to read and I think this one would be great! :) Thanks for such an awesome giveaway! :D

  31. Lhyra says

    This is an amazing giveaway especially for the bibliophiles :) It’s already summer vacay so I really want to read something. :)

  32. Michelle says

    I really want to read the School of Good and Evil. It looks interesting. Same goes for the other books. Wala nman kasi masyadong bookstore dito sa amin. Kailangan pang pumuntang Baguio o Manila. TnT

  33. Alexis says

    I really love to read Panic. Well almost all the works of Lauren Oliver are astounding. By the way, this giveaway was just so A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! <3

  34. cydney camero says

    Hi and thank you for this giveaway. This is really nice since summer is coming and what better way to spend it than with a good book right? Anyways, goodluck to your giveaway and more power to your blog!

  35. ma clara reyes says

    My first choice is the 300GC because i will let my kids buy what they want , my 2 kids love books so much.

  36. Chona Gomba says

    I really want The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White. I am currently looking for the next fantasy book to read when I saw the title on Goodreads and I really want to read it ever since. I’m thinking of downloading the free eBook but owning a copy from Fully Booked is much better! :)

  37. Arminda Puno De Leon says

    Which of the prizes do you want the most? Why? Into the Still Blue for me coz I love Veronica Rossi!

  38. Belle says

    I would love to get the GC! I have a book in mind that I wanted to purchase since its released but haven’t done yet.

  39. says

    I wanted to win because I would love to read books this summer. I want to have Panic because it seems interesting and its author is one of New York Times’ best selling authors!

  40. Mary Anne Ramirez says

    I want the GC the most so I would be able to choose the title that I want. I’m more into romance and science fiction

  41. Cel Fajardo says

    I Like the chaos of stars because I hear is a must read thats why Im curious. Im really into reading its my past time

  42. Mela says

    I’ve read The School of Good and Evil and I really want my own copy~ You’re so generous for having this giveaway :D

  43. Denise says

    The moment I saw Panic, I literally want to cry. I love Lauren Oliver and seeing that she has another book makes me so excited. Every time I see it in bookstores, I would just be like, “Just wait, I’ll buy you someday.” So finding out that you’re giving away free copy, I thought I should give it a try. :) Who knows, maybe I could be picked. May the odds be ever in my favor.

  44. laila bc says
