It's Alive!

Greetings my lovelies!

I have been made aware that my unexpected hiatus from blogging was much more extended than I originally thought. There have been a lot of changes in my life, good and bad, that I had to work through and get used to, making it that much more difficult to read and blog. I have lost people and pets, gained a second job (and a 6 day work week), suffered heartbreak, discovered my social side, had health issues, adopted an orphaned cat, etc etc. BUT I think I'm once again in a good place to start anew and get back into this wonderful world of book blogging! I have really missed all of this so much and I am insanely happy to get started again.

To celebrate my return, I've decided to hold a giveaway! This is mostly a way to thank all those who have stuck around whilst I did my great disappearing act. I mean, I have been reading and using social media periodically, but still. I'm sorry for that disappearing thing...

Anywhoozle, here goes the grand reappearance giveaway! I was contemplating what to give away for this and I thought I would let you guys choose from one of these options below! Let's get this party started!

Option 1
I'm feeling a little nostalgic, so I think the first prize option will be to pick a book from those I read in 2015. This option is available for my international readers, as long as the book you're interested in is available from the Book Depository and they'll ship to your country.

Here are a few of the books I read:

Option 2

That's right, I've gotten into the whole adult coloring trend. Frankly, I've never left my love for coloring, as evidenced by the old school coloring books I have in my art trunk. However, this new trend is awesome and I personally love the designs they're coming out with. So I'll be offering one of these coloring books PLUS some colored pencils to get you started. EDIT: This option, minus the colored pencils, has been added to the international option! So anyone can win it now! Yay!

Option 3

So I'm offering a book in Option 1, a coloring book in Option 2, what could I be offering in Option 3? Well, how about bookish awesomeness? I've fallen in love with Out Of Print! I've purchased two tees from them so far and I am already planning what my next purchase will be. For this prize option, I am offering a $25 e-gift card to Out of Print so you can deck out your life in awesome bookish glory!

Whew! That was a lot more than I had intended doing, but I really think you're all worth it. I hope there's a little something for everyone in here. To clarify a little, all three options are for US addresses, but only option 1 is available for international addresses. Also, if there's enough interest, I may draw more than one name... just sayin'...

Happy reading, lovelies!



  1. First i'm really happy you are back and thank you!
    now i've started color books as well so that's the prize that caught my eyes first but i'm international so it's option 1 for me and i was delighted to see in your 2015 list several books that are on my wishlist ( raven boys series) i can't tell you what i would choose yet as it's my birthday month and i don't know what i could receive but those two are those who caught my interest immediately

    i would love to hear more about your new little friend

    1. I was actually thinking that if the Book Depository has them, I just might include the coloring book option! I'll have to look into it. :) Thanks!

    2. you are wonderful


  2. Glad your back! Sorry to hear about your heartbreak and health issues and the loss of people & pets. Hope the cat can help you heal. I want a cat. They don't let us have pets here where I live but my brother has a dog on the sly. Maybe I can sneak a cat in. All the choices speak to me. I would like to own The Duff. It's been many years since I've read it. I also would love to color again in my adult age. I used to love doing that when I was younger. I've never heard Out of Print, but I looked it up and it looks unique and awesome. Thank you for all of it. Welcome back!

    1. Thanks! If you're ever able to get a cat, I definitely recommend it. They're simply the best. Love them!

  3. reviews about shopping books and swag online

  4. I am definitely checking out your book list! I have finally been reading books again! Sorry to hear about the hard times {hugs}. Hope everything keeps getting better and that you are happy

    1. Oh yay! I was lucky enough to read some stellar books (and some lame ones) last year, so I hope you find something you enjoy! Thanks ♡

  5. I love your blog header!! And for some reason it reminds me of the Ruin and Rising cover :)
    I'll go for option 1 if I win. I'd love to get my hands on Fangirl

    1. Thank you! I had a great designer come up with that for me and I fell in love instantly. :-) I haven't read Ruin and Rising yet, but it IS on my shelves! Lol! Thanks for entering!
