CHRISTMAS IN JULY GIVEAWAY HOP



Happy Saturday Everyone! I couldn't resist participating in the Christmas in July Giveaway Hop sponsored by Bookhounds because the official start date of the hop is my birthday. What a perfect way to celebrate my birthday--give away a fantastic book or gift card to purchase a book. I'll be having a fun birthday too. My daughter, her boyfriend, my boyfriend, and my mom are all going out to dinner with me to celebrate. It will be a big family party, something I haven't had in a long time.

Anyway 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 books that I hope you're looking forward to reading. This first batch is from the last giveaway hop I participated in. 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, but I couldn't resist adding some new books that I heard of. 

 
 

 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 30th 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 years old or older to enter. The book giveaway is international as long as Book Depository ships to you for free.

Here's what's coming up (FYI I'm on my summer schedule.):

Monday, July 23rd I have an interview with debut author K.A. Reynolds and a giveaway of her MG fantasy THE LAND OF YESTERDAY

Wednesday, August 1st I have an interview with debut author Annie Sullivan and a giveaway of her YA fantasy/fairytale retelling A TOUCH OF GOLD and my IWSG Post

Tuesday, August 14th I'm participating in the Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop

Monday, August 20th, I have an interview with debut author Brigit Young and a giveaway of her MG contemporary mystery WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

Hope to see you on  Monday, July 23rd!

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

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

What a great selection of books. I'll pass on the giveaway, though, because I have way too many unread book on my shelf, and I'm trying to write my latest WIP as well. Happy Happy Birthday. It sounds like a great party coming up. Hope you have a wonderful time.
