FREEDOM TO READ GIVEAWAY HOP


Happy Friday Everyone! Today I'm excited to participate in the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop hosted by BookHounds. Hope you're having a fantastic start to your summer. I'm happy to say that after a few hard years with a lot of heartache, personal challenges, and life changes, I'm already starting to have a fun and happy summer.

Thanks to all of you who gave me ideas for books you would like to see in my giveaways. I am trying to look for new books in romance, contemporary, and historical fiction as well as build up my middle grade books for these giveaways as well.

I hope you find a book you like for yourself, a family member, or a friend in the choices offered. Don’t see a book you like? You can win a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card instead. I hope you'll all enter to win a book or gift card for yourself or as a gift for someone.

So here are your choices. So many good books. For any Megan Whalen Turner fans, I just finished THICK AS THIEVES, her newest book after years of wating. It was really good. If you want an earlier book in any of these series, you can pick that instead. You can find descriptions of these books on Goodreads.

Here are the YA choices:

 


 


 



 


 


 




 
And here are the middle grade choices:


 


 


 


If you haven't found a book you want, you can win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.


To enter, all you need to do is be a follower anyway you want and leave a comment through July 15th telling me the book you want to win or if you want to win the Gift Card instead. If your e-mail is not on your Google Profile, you must leave it in the comments to enter the contest.

If you mention this contest on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, mention this in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry. You must be 13 or older to enter. International entries are welcome as long as The Book Depository ships to you for free.

Here's what's coming up. FYI I will be taking some weeks off in July and August since the summer tends to be slow and I use this time to start preparing my schedule for 2018.

Wednesday, July 5th I have an interview with debut authors and sisters Heidi Lang and  Kati Bartkowski and a giveaway of their MG fantasy A DASH OF DRAGONS and my IWSG post

Monday, July 17th I have a guest post by debut author Corabel Shofner and a giveaway of her contemporary ALMOST PARADISE

Hope to see you on Wednesday! Have a great holiday!

And here are all the other blogs participating in this Blog Hop

I as going to take a pass on this and then I saw about a dozen books on here I really want to read. Choosing just one -- it would have to be The Epic Failure of Arturo Zamora. You always seem to tempt me even when I am buried in books. Cant help myself. Thanks for the chance and for the reminder of all these great books.
