Topics I've Started

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (Digital HD) Contest

23 March 2015 - 12:21 AM

My blog recently partnered up with Warner Home Video and Partners Hub to do a giveaway for one copy of the Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies on Digital HD.

 

We're not the only blog doing one so I recommend googling other blogs and entering there, too. You can only win one copy but you could increase your chances a lot by entering in multiple places.

 

Here's the Nerdophiles link.


Win a February "UNDEAD" Themed ZBOX

21 February 2015 - 03:45 AM

Another giveaway from Nerdophiles here! This time we're teaming up with Zavvi.com to giveaway one of their ZBOX mystery subscription boxes. This one has an 'Undead' theme so there will be zombies. Presumably lots of zombies.

 

... we’re super excited to be teaming up with the folks over at Zavvi to offer you one of their sold-out February ZBOX subscription boxes. This month’s theme is “UNDEAD” which is perfect because if there’s anything we love more than subscription boxes it’s zombies.

 

...

 

Never heard of ZBOX?

 

It’s a new monthly mystery box offered by Zavvi, a UK-based company that ships worldwide. The February box will be their third box and if you want an idea of what you’ll get, check out their past boxes! (Spoiler: they’re freakin’ sweet.) ZBOX features awesome items and gear focused on a new pop culture influenced theme every month. March’s theme has already been announced and gamers in particular should enjoy the “RETRO” theme.

 

We’re super excited to get our first box. Check back here next week for our unboxing video and our inevitable giddiness at so much awesome “UNDEAD” swag. Or subscribe to us on YouTube for updates. We’ll be announcing the winner in the video first so watch and keep your fingers crossed!

 

Interested?

Closes at 11:59 PM PST Wednesday.


Win Brandon Sanderson's Steelheart and Firefight

03 February 2015 - 02:36 AM

My blog has partnered up with Random House to do a giveaway for Brandon Sanderson's latest release - Firefight. It's the second book in the Reckoners series and a sequel to Steelheart.

 

The basic gist of the series boils down to superheroes are real and they're basically real dicks about it. Instead of helping people, they are corrupted by their owners and take over the world entirely. They squabble among each other and generally treat humans horribly. The main character, David, joins a band of rebels dedicated to eradicating these 'Epics' one by one.

 

They're actually really awesome books. I've really enjoyed them. These are my first Brandon Sanderson books but I'm told if you've liked his other stuff you'll like these, too.

Falling Kingdoms Book Series Giveaway

21 December 2014 - 06:17 PM

I didn't post this one originally mostly because I forgot and then because I wasn't sure anyone would be interested. But we're in the last twelve hours of the giveaway so I thought I'd post it just in case.

 

My blog, Nerdophiles, teamed up with the publisher to do a giveaway for the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes. It's a YA fantasy series that is actually pretty good. They described it as a sort of midway point between Game of Thrones and another YA fantasy book called Graceling and I think that's pretty fair. It's got political intrigue, romance, magic, etc. but it's very readable.

 

Here's the link for it.

 

Give it a shot if you or anyone else is a reader and likes this sort of thing!

 

This giveaway includes the first three of what will eventually be at least six planned books in the series. It also comes with a dartboard.
