Exciting Announcements!: Giveaways and Upcoming Events!

It's that time again where I let you guys in on what's coming up on my blog and potentially my YouTube channel. So feel free to watch the video or read the recap, or both!

Exciting Announcements Video


1. SIGNED hardcover of The Eternity Cure: First giveaway is for a SIGNED copy of The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa, now for this giveaway to start I need to get to 300 followers on this blog. So if you look to your right in the sidebar you should see a section title followers with a button that says "Join this site" click that and follow the steps to follow and once I reach 300 I will start the giveaway.

2. Watersong Prizepack: I've recently been approached by the publishing company, St. Martin's Griffin and was offered a complementary copy of Tidal, the most recently released book in the Watersong series by Amanda Hocking as well as a prize pack to giveaway to one of you guys featuring "select Griffin Teen books and a special edition iPad case" So stay tuned for more updates as they come.

3. Alabama Baby!: I'm participating in the 2013 Reading Road Trip hosted by Britta @ I Like These Books and Hafsah @ IceyBooks and will be representing the state of Alabama, which means I will be doing a bit of Alabama fun fact research and looking into some local slang too. The big part of the post will be a giveaway for a paperback copy of Looking for Alaska by John Green (US only, sorry International peeps)

4. Raven Cycle Read-Along and Giveaway: I was so excited over the cover of the next book in the Raven Cycle that @catchingfray on Twitter and I got into a rather nice discussion about the book ocver and series in general and I had decided I wanted to reread The Raven Boys before I dug into The Dream Thieves and she suggested I do a Read-Along which I instantly got excited about. Then when I got an ARC of The Dream Thieves I decided to make the Read-Along a bit more fun by offering the Arc up as a Prize. The Read-Along will start on July 23, 2013 and will run every Tuesday and Thursday until August 15, 2013 at the bottom of each post will be a new chance to gain enteries and the contest will end on August 19, 2013 (my 20th birthday btw) with a review of The Dream Thieves.

5. Giveaway Bonanza: There are so many books coming out in October 2013 many of which I obtained ARCs for thanks to the wonderful publishers @ BEA '13 and I thought I'd spread the love around. So starting very shortly after the Raven Cycle Read-Along and Giveaway is over I will be giving away book like, Shadowlark by Meagan Spooner and Teardrop by Lauren Kate all SIGNED.

6. Spoiler Alert Videos: Finally, being a spoiler-free reviewer I don't get the chance to talk about the fun spoilery twists of various novels with you guys and I've been trying to think of a way around it. I think I've finally come up with an idea, I want to utilize my YouTube channel to talk about my reactions and then discuss them in th comments with you guys, OR do a possible livestream where I get a better chance to talk and bounce ideas off you guys, the only problem with that is scheduling. So which way would you guys prefer, leave a comment below.



  1. You already know how I feel about all this awesomeness...
