Giveaway-a-Day: Day 2


Remember yesterday when I said I'd been blogging for 5 years? And the best way for me to celebrate was to have 5 days of giveaways? ME TOO. 

Day two of the giveaways, y’all! I’m serious. All week long there are giveaways of great books from great bloggers because I’ve been blogging 5 years and I do what I want. You’re welcome.

Today I have the talented and creative Tarafrom Hobbitsies sharing one of her favorite books of the past 5 years (which was NOT easy for her to do...so she didn’t pick just one) with you! And by share I mean she’s giving you a chance to win it. She’s pretty fantastic that way! If you haven’t checked out her blog, you’re missing out on a wide variety of books and authors and genres and authors. Tara is amazing at reading all sorts of good books – from contemporary to MG fantasy – and reviewing them honestly and sincerely. I adore her for her great recommendations and for geeking out over fantasy reads with me!

But you’re not here to read about my and Tara’s lovefest. You’re here for the GIVEAWAY. So let’s roll.

Tara says: Guys, Lisa is amazing and a total inspiration. I can't believe she's been blogging so long! Happy Blogoversary, Lisa!

Without further adieu, in honour of Lisa, I'm giving away some of my favourite books! Yes, plural. Cause Lisa told me to choose a book and I said no, I'm picking TWO books.


The first one is Adorkable by Sarra Manning. Adorkable isn't out in the US yet but I cheated and bought it on my kindle and I just devoured it in one sitting. Adorkable is SUCH an adorable and awesome and hilarious book, not to mention RELATABLE. I'm not usually a huge fan of blogging/twitter in books cause it gives me the willies, but Adorkable did it SO PERFECTLY and I just want to share this amazing title with the world.


The other book I'm giving away is a finished copy of Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler. Sarah Ockler rocked my world with Twenty Boy Summer, but the writing Fixing Delilah just blew me away. I cannot praise this lady and her books enough, and it was SO HARD for me to pick between Twenty Boy Summer and Fixing Delilah to give away. But I ended up going with Fixing Delilah because it didn't make me cry as much and I'm having a bad day. Is that not a good enough excuse?

TWO BOOKS. Get some.

Thanks, Tara! <3

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  8. The Fault in Our Stars, oddly enough. I feel weird totally copying the comment above mine. BUT it is the truth, so that's it. I'll add the last couple before that for originality's sake: Blood Red Road and Stormdancer!

  16. YAY for Tara! I love your enthusiasm for Adorkable Tara! And I need to add Ockler to my list of contemps that I need to read since I'm all up in the contemp business lately.

    Also I want to make a public declaration that Tara is the best at this: when she loves a book or an author, she loves them so much and wants you to experience them too. And I LOVE that about her. She shares her love of books and authors. Love that gal.

    The last book that blew me away? Well, I read The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss between January and July, I think, taking it in slowly because it blew me away. I also recently LOVED Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. Currently reading The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, which is blowing me away.

    YA, though? I just finished a re-read of The Knife of Never Letting Go by the one and only Patrick Ness. That one blew me away AGAIN.

    Sorry, I didn't follow directions. I listed too many books. I recommend them all!
