I'm back! With giveaway!

Friday, April 1, 2011

I'm finally back from vacation! This feels weird. I haven't been on Blogger in almost two weeks. That's crazy! I did a lot of blog reading while I was away on my phone, but refused to even touch a computer until today. A break is a break is a break.

But I'm back, bitches nice readers. Did you miss me? I missed you.

Some of my Twitter followers got to see glimpses of my trip, but if you aren't a follower (And why not? Come find me! @loganturner) or aren't on Twitter *cough*Small Review*cough*, then here are a few quick pictures for your viewing pleasure.

I have a thing for sparkly headwear, and I had some serious Mickey ear lust happening for all of the shiny goodness happening all over Magic Kingdom. We were with our friends who were getting married that weekend, and the bride-to-be had the cutest white sequined ears. When I saw these red ones, it was like a match made in heaven. I wore them for the rest of the day without shame.

The wedding we attended was in Daytona Beach, Florida. This was our room balcony, where I spent most of Saturday reading Wicked Lovely while my husband was occupied with Best Man duties. It was pretty rough. Not.

We got back on Monday, and the rest of the week I've been relaxing, trying not to stress over school, and reading. I managed to finish Dark Lover and Leverage, and hope to knock out a couple more by the end of the weekend. For some reason, I have been reading really slowly over vacation, as if my mind is telling me to slow down and just enjoy myself.

I do have two pieces of good news today. The first is that today is the home opener for the Chicago Cubs! I'm watching the pre-game festivities as I write this. Go Cubbies!

The other good news is that I've decided to start hosting giveaways more frequently, starting today! Each month on the 1st, I will post a new giveaway announcement, and at the end of the month I'll announce the winner. The books will be through Book Depository so I can host these internationally, and will be two titles that I have given 5 star reviews.

So let's get this party started!

Today I am giving away the ultimate beach read, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and the ultimate escape read, Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. To enter, you must be at least 13 years old and have a shipping address accessible for The Book Depository. Following is not required, but is appreciated!

This giveaway is open from April 1-30. The winner (and a new giveaway!) will be announced on May 1st. The winner will be contacted via email and have 48 hours to respond or the win is forfeited and a new winner will be chosen. All winners are chosen using Random.org. No extra entries are offered, but feel free to tweet, blog, or otherwise spread the word about it!

To enter, simply fill out THIS FORM. Good luck!

Looks like you had fun! And got a lot of reading done! Extremely jealous of that picture of the beach as there is still several feet of snow on the ground here. I've also been trying to have at least one giveaway a month, mainly because I have pretty dang good luck when it comes to winning other people's contests. It's fun to pass the love around :)

Thanks everyone! I'm super glad to be back and I promise there will be even more giveaways coming. I accidentally went back to Borders during the closing sale.
