This past week I’ve been blessed.
Blessed with books. Is there anything better?
On Monday I received a copy of The Liars’ Gospel, by Naomi Alderman. I won this in a giveaway, though I don’t remember which one (oops!). So thanks, for whomever hosted the contest. It was great to win. And will be even greater to read.
Wednesday I hit the jackpot with two steamy wins: The Big Book of Bondage and Frenzy, both by ever-erotic and woman-friendly Cleis Press. I nabbed these in the giveaway on Sharon Wachsler’s blog, Bed, Body & Beyond. Thanks, Sharon! Trust me–we will read and put these to good use.
I also won a copy of Blog It, from my writer crush, Molly Greene. Hopefully, this will prompt me to become a more avid blogger, with stunning blog posts and photos so crisp they will cause readers’ eyes to ache.
Joya Ryan kindly sent me a copy of her very hot new release, Break Me. I’ll be reviewing this within the next couple of weeks, so please stay tuned.
What is so amazing about these five titles (apart from five great reads) is that I got them all for absolutely frickin’ nothing. Which makes the reading that much sweeter, and brings me to this point: People, enter giveaways. Enter contest. It takes only a minute, and if I can win, so can you.
I’m not the lucky type and never used to enter giveaways. I was sure I wouldn’t win, and most of the time, I don’t. But every so often–presto!, my name is chosen, and that’s what keeps me going. (It’s like gambling in this respect, no?)
So onward to another addition of (drumroll, please), Friday Freebies.
I hesitate to include this first entry, since I’ve been waiting to read it for weeks and the more who enter, the less chances I’ll pick up a free read. But no matter, I’m feeling generous so here goes: Blue Coyote Motel, by Dianne Harman, is up for grabs on Goodreads. Please check it out but don’t enter, okay? Or better yet if you win, can I borrow and read when you’re finished?
The fine ladies over at Shh Moms Reading are giving away a copy of the steamy romance Metamorphosis by Erin Noelle. Looks like some sheet-clutching-good love scenes included, too. Enter here.
Amused by Books is hosting three books for giveaway through the end of the month: South of Superior by Ellen Airgood, The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson, and Mr. Churchill’s Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal. (Please leave Mr. Churchill’s Secretary for me, okay?)
Happy giveaways, everyone.
