MIDWINTER'S EVE GIVEAWAY HOP


Happy Holidays Everyone! Today is my last post of 2017. I am excited to be participating in the Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop hosted by Bookhounds. I hope you are getting ready to enjoy some relaxing time and whatever holidays you celebrate. For any of you that are having a hard holiday season for whatever reason (me too to an extent), my heart goes out to you, and I'm hoping you have people in your life to support you through it like me.

I'm looking forward to 2018 and am hoping you will stop by a lot to see all the great authors and books I feature as well as agents if you are a writer like me. And I'll be doing lots more of these giveaway hops because they are so popular and a great way to shout out about books I may otherwise not be able to share with you.

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. I've got a combination of MG and YA. I've included some interesting looking books by debut authors that are coming out in January. If you want an earlier book in any of these series, you can pick that instead as long as it doesn't cost more than the book here. You can find descriptions of these books on Goodreads.

 



 



 




 




 




 




 




 




 




 




 




 




 
Sorry that Blogger will not align these all up correctly. 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 December 31st 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:

Wednesday, January 3rd I'll be back with an interview with debut author Sara Holland and a giveaway of her YA fantasy EVERLESS and my IWSG post.

Monday, January 8th I have an interview with debut author Rachel Lynn Solomon and a giveaway of her contemporary YA I'LL MISS YOU WHEN I'M GONE

Wednesday, January 10th I have an agent spotlight interview with Elizabeth Bewley and critique query giveaway

Hope to see you on Wednesday, January 3rd!

And here are all the other blogs participating in this blog hop:
