The Book Life's 4th of July Blogoversary Giveaways!!
It's blogoversary time here at The Book Life and that means presents!
I've been getting loads of swag from all sorts of amazing authors so that I could put it all together for an awesome swag giveaway! There will be 3 swag packs to give away and all of them are loaded with lots of pretties :0)
AND! I have one gorgeous, handmade bracelet from AURACLE author Gina Rosati! This bracelet is so pretty and you definitely want the chance to rock it! The bracelet will be randomly packaged in one of the swag packs, so you won't know if you won the bracelet, until you open your swag pack. Here's the bracelet:
I'm also giving away a mystery box of books. It has a mix of ARCs and finished copies, all of them Young Adult titles! There will be at least 8 books and of course some extra goodies :0)
The swag giveaways and the mystery box are both US only, but there's a little something for the international followers, too! I've read a lot of great books so far in 2012 and one person is going to get to choose one of the books from the list below (if it's not out yet, I'll pre-order) and as long as The Book Depository ships to you, you're golden!
These are all fantastic reads, some of my favorites, and you can't go wrong choosing any of them!
So go forth, enter the giveaways, and thank you for being a part of The Book Life's first year of blogging! I can't wait for what's next and I'm so happy to be a part of this community :0)
