Spontaneous Giveaway Time!

It's GIVEAWAY time! :party

Lately, I've been sort of glum regarding the blog. Seems like I just got in the groove again, whipping out tons of ARC Reviews (on or before the release date!) and having a blast. This ended all too soon though.  This past year I was barely working and looking for a job for 6+ months. I finally scored a new job *squee* but the hours are loooong. I barely have the energy to read and am falling a bit behind on review books read. I had to cancel some buddy reads too. :c 

But I'm happy. :e I mean, I love this new job, it's awesome! And I still have time to blog, which is a plus. I think I just have to lower my expectations for the amount of books I can pound out. Even though I'm a fast reader, some nights I don't even pick up a book or my iPad to read. :o

The point to all this? I think, since the last giveaway went so well, I wanna do another one! I didn't forsee this, so no hop this time. Just spontaneity. I have several books still on my shelves (ARCs and finished copies) that I don't plan on ever reading. 
Hint: some of them are on my trade list on YA Book Exchange

  12. I am passing through from the post on Between My Lines on giving a little blog love. Sometimes a giveaway does help to just lift you. I guess its that giving attitude. I notice you have some great discussion posts here, so in spite of being busy just hang on in. I always think at the right time the reading mojo kicks back in and without pressure things get going again.

    My favourite genre is contemporary romance - adult. I have read some middle grade books and loved them but mainly that's linked to my job as a teacher. As a home alone reader my preference is adult fiction!
