New Year New You Giveaway Hop



Happy New Year's Day Everyone! Today I'm excited to participate in the New Year New You Giveaway Hop hosted by MamatheFox. I hope you had a fantastic holiday season and hope you have a wonderful New Year. I really enjoyed spending the Christmas holidays with my daughter, her husband, and some of her husband's family at their house. She's only 25 and hosted the holidays for the first time. It was so much. I'm really hopeful that I'm going to have a fantastic year with lots of good changes in my life.

Book of Your Choice or Amazon Gift Card

I am offering a book of your choice that is $20 or less on Amazon or The Book Depository. I’m looking forward to seeing what books everyone is looking forward to reading. If you don’t have a book you want, you can win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.


There are some fantastic new releases in January 2023 to choose from if you want, but you can pick any book of your choice or the Amazon gift card. These are just suggestions.
