Happy Birthday to Me & 100th Blog Post Giveaway

I’m hitting two milestones today. One is that today is my birthday! YAY me! The other is that this is officially my 100th post! There’s just excitement all around.

Birthdays were always special to me as a kid. My parents didn’t have an overabundance of wealth, and therefore, birthdays and Christmas were the main events that included receiving gifts. I still get excited about what I might receive for my birthday, and since I don’t spend much money on myself just because, it’s always a nice treat when my birthday rolls around. Plus CAKE! Specifically for me, ice cream cake and caramel cake. My two faves. My mom does one and my mother-in-law does the other.

The older I get, the more I’m seeing the benefits of giving back to others. And in celebration of my birthday and my 100th blog post, I’m giving back to you guys—my readers—in appreciation for sticking with me through my ramblings and for simply being interested in what I have to say. THANK YOU!

I wanted to choose books that I have read that have been released within the last 12 months. The only one on the list that I haven't read is Rapture by Lauren Kate, though it is on my TBR list.

The winner gets to choose one of the following books:

Partials by Dan Wells

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Raptureby Lauren Kate

Giveaway is open to US Residents Only.

The winner will be notified via email and will have 72 hours to claim their prize before another winner is chosen.

The "Answer a Question" answer can be found at least two different places on my blog.

  2. I'm hoping to win Insurgent. Happiest of Birthdays to you!

  3. Hoping to win Rapture...I already have a couple of books in this series. Love your blog. And I know you love doing it. Keep up the good work!

  4. I would choose Partials by Dan Wells. I've read the I'm not a serial killer trilogy and it was fantastic.

  8. Happy Birthday, congrats on the 100 posts, and thanks for the giveaway! Sounds like excitment all around! :)

  9. I *think* that Partials is the only non-series book, so I'd probably like to win that.

  10. Happy Birthday!!!!! I think I'd pick Partials...I haven't read Insurgent yet, but it's on hold at the library, so I think I'll just try and have enough patience to wait on it. ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway!
