January 2021 of Books Giveaway Hop



Happy Saturday and Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you had a safe and happy holiday season and that your family and you are healthy. 

I'm looking forward to 2021 and hopefully a return to some normalcy later this year where I can see my mother in person and everyone else I can't safely see now except for outside. Sometimes, like now, that includes my daughter. 

I'm excited to continue with my mission on my blog, which is to help authors and writers on their path to publication, help debut MG and YA authors when their books release, and share my love of books, this year. I'm thrilled to start 2021 by participating in the January 2021 of Books Giveaway Hop hosted by It Starts at Midnight and Lonna @ FLYLēF.

I am trying something new to start the year. I'm still doing two giveaway hops this month. This one is primarily dedicated to books by debut MG and YA books that are releasing in January 2021 although I have some other newly released MG and YA books as well. My next giveaway hop will feature some of these book but also other highly anticipated MG and YA books releasing this month. You can find out more about that giveaway in the Upcoming Interviews and Giveaways listed at the bottom of this post.

I hope you'll stop by for that giveaway and also support the authors I'm featuring in interviews and guest posts by stopping by and entering the contests. 

You can find descriptions of these books on Goodreads. Here are your choices:













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