Today is my Blogoversary . . . how about a giveaway?


Happy second birthday bloggy!   

I can hardly believe it – two years have gone by in an eye blink.  For the last month or two, things have been quiet around here but I am slowly but surely getting back to reading and reviewing and pretty soon things should be back to their normal self. 

So what a great way to celebrate getting back to my blogging by having a giveaway for my blog’s birthday.  Here is how this will work.

I'm giving away an order from The Book Depository up to the value of $15.  You can give me three choices of books and I will pick (one) for you.  I love surprise gifts, don’t you!

This is open internationally to where The Book Depository ships.

You must be a Google Friend Connect friend (I will check).

You must be 13 or older to enter.

That is all – just leave me a comment below.  Please be sure to also leave your email address so that I can give you the good news.

Ends May 11th at midnight – my time :)

    I would love either Vixen by Jillian Larkin, Rival by Sara Bennett Wealer, or Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick.
