[TSS] Big List of Book Giveaways – Aug 23 Edition

This giveaways round-up post is a regular feature here at MsBookish so if you’re holding a book giveaway, let me know and I’ll include your giveaway in my next giveaways round-up post. Please note that the next edition will be posted on Sunday, August 30, so your giveaway should end on or after that date. Huge thanks to everyone who emailed me their giveaway URLs this past week!

As always, I’ve separated the giveaways according to genre, for your convenience. All links in this post open in a new tab or window (depending on how your browser is set up).

I left the compilation of this post to the last minute (I have this tendency to procrastinate …) and I know I didn’t catch all the giveaways that I normally do. If I missed your giveaway, please feel free to include a link to it in the comments section of this post. It’s probably best to put one link per comment, as my blogging software tends to filter out comments with multiple links as spam. Update: Please note, the purpose of this list is to highlight book giveaways. Please do not leave links to non-book giveaways, as they will deleted.

Good luck, everyone!
