Thank you all so much for entering and spreading the word!! This giveaway wouldn't have been as successful without all of you. For those who did not win this time, there will be more giveaways in the future--it won't be as big as this one because I don't have the funds to do this all the time (me being a broke ex-college student) but there will be other international giveaways on this blog! Remember, you can still enter the Hachette Ecstasy Unveiled giveaway until 2/4 (US and Canada only).
