Just Because Giveaway

I've been feeling a little down the past few weeks, and while doing a ton of reading (which always makes me feel better), I decided to pass on a little literary sunshine to someone who might need a little end of summer pick-me-up.

Here's how it works:

I'm going to make a mystery prize pack with 3 or 4 (depending on how many I can stuff in the envelope) of the following (previously read) ARCs. The winner will get to choose *one* book that will definitely be in the envelope, but the rest will be a surprise. (And who doesn't like book surprises?!)

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson (ARC)
The Romeo and Juliet Code by Phoebe Stone (ARC)
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby (ARC)
Impossible by Nancy Werlin (ARC)
Grace by Elizabeth Scott (ARC)
Bandits by LM Preston (ARC)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (ARC)

Rules in a Box:
  1. You must be a follower.
  2. You must be 13 or older to enter.
  3. The prize pack is US only since I'm handling shipping. No P.O. Boxes.
  4. Ends at 11:59 pm CDT September 28th, 2011.
  5. Winners will be contacted by email and will have 48 hours to respond.
  6. Entries will only be accepted using the FORM, and you MUST include your email address so I can contact you. No email = no books.
  7. Winner will be chosen using a spreadsheet random number generator. 
I reserve the right to amend the rules as needed. (Hopefully this won't happen, but just in case...)

What's one thing that *always* makes you feel better when you have the blues?

If you can't see the form below, you can find it here.


  1. i love to sing!!!! lol. and also play with my puppies

  2. I sing and I listen to music. Sometimes both!

  3. My kids can always cheer me up, unless they are being crazy and are the reason I am going insane in the first place lol.

  4. The one thing that *always* makes me feel better when I have the blues is MUSIC!!!

  5. Reading a book I absolutely love. One I know by heart, yet still have to sit and read it again. Very comforting.

  6. Like everyone music works. And when I'm upset I always clean. It's productive at lesat! :)


  7. I like to put on some really fun music and just sing loud and dance. That usually breaks me out of a funk. But lately I've been watching Mr. Bean (super goofy funny British show) and that really makes me laugh and feel better!

  8. When I'm feeling down I try to find a funny movie or tv show to watch. That usually makes me feel better.

  9. i usually read. it takes me away and makes me forget. i always feel better. :) thank you for the awesome giveaway!

  10. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Reading and practicing my instruments always makes me feel better. Also, writing can be cathartic sometimes, even if it's just lists!

  11. Probably my animals, or singing. Sometimes I just need some time alone. If I don't get enough quiet time, I get very irritable!

  12. Those are some great ideas! I need to sing and dance and write more, I think. :-)
