My 4th Blogoversary - Giveaway (US Only)


I can't started blogging four years ago this week!  How time flies!  It's been a fantastic four years and I hope this upcoming year is going to be just as successful.  I've loved getting to know members of the book blogging community - we're a great bunch of people, if I do say so myself.  I can't wait to see what the next year brings!  Let's celebrate with virtual cake, virtual hugs, and, what you're all here for, a giveaway!


As a big thank you, I'm hosting a giveaway (US Only, sorry)!  One lucky winner will get to choose one of my favorite 2018 debuts!  You can choose from the books listed below (covers are linked to Goodreads):







This giveaway will last until Midnight (ET) on Wednesday, August 29th, 2018.  I will alert the winner via email and they will have 48 hours to respond or I will have to select another winner.  Good luck!


As always, thank you for visiting my blog and perhaps commenting down below.  Here's to the rest of 2018 and 2019 (and hopefully many more)!

    There were so many great debut novels in 2018. :D I'm not sure I can even pick a favorite? I did really like The Astonishing Color of After, though, so we'll go with that one. :)

    My favorite book by a debut author this year is probably a tie between The Kiss Quotient and Echoes.

  25. I actually am unsure what my favorite 2018 debut would be. Maybe Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann? I am not sure how many debuts I've read this year!! However my favorite 2018 release is definitely Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
