Giveaways! So Many Giveaways!

Happy, happy Monday, bibliovores! It's also the last day of July, isn't that fun? Honestly, where has the year gone... I feel like it was just September. Or maybe December. I can't deal with time these days!

I'm doing a little bit of a round-up in this post, as well as I've got a fresh giveaway at the bottom. What motivated this? I've been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing, since I moved recently ("recently": it's been exactly one month since I moved out). I've been rearranging my life in general, since I'm finished with school and work full-time now (but don't have to deal with homework and class projects and final exams and all of that). A lot of things have changed for me, both little and big. Like...

- I graduated in May. (This isn't news though!)
- I'm working as a water resources engineer. (YAY!)
- I take public transportation to work. (And I love it so much - seriously.)
- I bought myself a smartphone. (Yup, you read that right. I didn't have a smartphone up until the end of June. I was determined to make it through college without one... it didn't end up being too difficult. The "hardest" parts were things like explaining I couldn't read group messages, or not being able to use Google Maps to get directions. Fun times!)
- I made an Instagram for my blog. (The timing seemed right. It was always something I wanted to do, but I didn't want to create yet another social media for me to manage, while still in college. So I waited until I graduated. I also got a smartphone, which helps.)

Lots of changes. Things are settling (though I'm still doing very poorly in terms of going to bed early), and I'm loving my new routines. I'm also loving all of the purging I've been doing, in terms of clothes, shoes, and yup - books. It's hard, and I hate to see certain things go, but at the same time, I love seeing things go.

So! I've got some giveaways to share. The first are a few that are already active:

Tomorrow, I'll be posting two more giveaways. One is for Ferocious by Paula Stokes, and the other is my August New Release giveaway. I'll update this post with those graphics and links.

I've got one more giveaway, piggybacking off my YA contemporary ARCs giveaway. I recognize that there are tons of followers of mine that don't read YA contemporary (or YA in general). So! Why not choose whatever book you want? This isn't helping me clear house, but that's okay. This can be my let's-celebrate-me-being-on-Instagram! giveaway. :D

So! Choose any book, up to $17 USD. INT as long as The Book Depository ships to your country. Ends 08/17, 11:59 PM EST. Good luck!


  1. You seem to have had a lot of awesome changes in your life. Congratulations again on your graduation and your new job. Yay, it feels amazing, right? Like a new adventure. I hope you enjoy these changes and have a wonderful week. Soooo happy for you. :)

    Thank you for the giveaway! :)

  2. I would most likely choose a regency or historical romance, maybe a cozy mystery.

  3. Wow, you definitely had one busy year! So many great things happening for you. That makes me so happy to hear. There are so many great books coming out this fall that it's hard to pick just one that I'm excited about. lol! I guess if I had to pick just one I would say, Renegades by Marissa Meyer. It sounds sooo good!

  4. 2017 has been a wild ride so far, that's for sure! Good luck with all your purging -- sometimes getting rid of stuff makes you appreciate the things you have leftover that much more. And be sure to update us about how your job is going! I hope you're still loving it. :)

  5. "What book would you choose?" If it qualifies, I would choose "The Gentleman's Guide To Vice and Virtue."

  6. I'm not sure what book I would choose, probably a young adult or contemporary romance, thanks for the chance!

  7. I'd love "A Wilder Rose" if that would count.

  8. *What book would you choose? Kissing Max Holden

    *What are some Fall '17 books that you haven't read yet that you're looking forward to reading? If Birds Fly Back

    *What's a 2018 book you're already looking forward to reading? Have no idea about this one

  9. I am looking forward to The Bakersville Dozen by Kristina McBride

  12. I choose Hopeless - Colleen Hoover.
    XOXO from argentina!!

  13. I'm looking forward to The Hearts We Sold.

  14. This month I'm looking forward to read The Hummingbird Heart, Ferocious and Wonder Woman, so I'll probably choose one of those. Or The Architect of Song ♥
