2nd Annual “My Favorite Things” Holiday Giveaway

Hello Everyone!!! I’m soooo excited to be able to do this weeklong giveaway again this year!! This is where I get to share some of the books that I’ve LOVED from this year. I wish I could give away EVERY book I loved, but that’s just not possible, so I’ve got a “sampling”, if you will. Some of these I bought specifically for this event, some were ARCs provided by the publishers throughout the year, some have been graciously donated by their authors. I hope you’ll love them as much as I did!! (Unfortunately, I learned with this event last year that shipping overseas is just too expensive. Other contests I have are international, but this one will be US/CAN only. I’m sorry.)

So… here’s how this will work. Below is a list of the seven days leading up to Christmas day, and what the prize is for that day. You may enter for as many days as you like, but you may only win ONCE. So, if you enter for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday prizes, and you get chosen for Wednesday’s, you’re not eligable for Friday’s prize. Make sense?? If not, email me and I’ll answer any additional questions. To enter, all you need to do is comment below with the name of the book (title and author) you’re looking most forward to in 2012, and the days that you want to be entered for. Please remember to include your first name and email address for notification in your post. The winner will be chosen randomly from all entries for each day.

So… here are just some of MY FAVORITE THINGS…

    I’d like Mon. or Friday. I’m most looking forward to Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels’ spinoff featuring Andrea. It’s Magic Blade, I think.
