Let’s Get 2016 Over With a Giveaway – Part 4 (US Only)

Posted December 28, 2016 by Lisa Mandina in giveaway / 2 Comments

Week 4 starting now, and will end earlier since Sunday is the first of 2017!

Okay, 2016 has really started to end the year with a bang! And not a good one!  Since my last giveaway, we’ve lost both George Michael and Carrie Fisher!  People are going about trying to save Betty Green now.   We’ve lost so many other big names
this year, Gene Wilder, David Bowie, and Prince just to name a few.  I’m
so glad that I got the chance to see Prince in concert once in my
lifetime.  Not to mention that today they mentioned that Stan Lee just turned 94, and I hope that doesn’t jinx him!!!  There has been such craziness with politics, I won’t go into
specifics, as that is part of the problem, but it’s been so crazy that
family members have been split because of this.

I’ve had some good things happen, I got to go to the NOLA Storycon and
meet some of my favorite authors, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Samantha
Young, and Jay Crownover were my very very favorites.  I won NaNoWriMo
for the 2nd time by writing my full 50,000 words.  I’ve had a few
publishers start sending me things without me having to reach out to
them first.  So I feel like my blog might finally be getting where I
want it to be.  I’ve been reading a ton of books this year.  I bumped my
goal on Goodreads up over 50 books for the year compared to last year. 
I got a new tattoo. I got picked to be a volunteer at Apollycon 2017! 
So hopefully next year I can add that to a good thing, especially since I
cannot wait to meet Anna Todd, the books that I am in love with and got
a tattoo for.  Not to mention Kylie Scott is going to be there, and I
am so in love with her books!

One thing that I totally need to work on is all the books I have that I
don’t know when I’m going to get to.  I’ve been taking a lot of them to
my school library.  I figure that way they’ll get the chance for other
people, my students, to read them, and when I have time or am in the
mood for one of them, I’ll still know where they are to check out and
read.  Unfortunately, there are a lot of books I have that are ARCs or
else my library already has, or maybe they’re not in good enough
condition that I can put them in my library.  And this is where I’m
setting up a giveaway.  Below are the books that I’m looking to get rid
of through a giveaway, or there a few newer ARCs I might be willing to
trade for other ARCs if you want them.

 I have one last item you can pick as one of your two books.  A year ago my sister asked me if I wanted to buy a coloring book that a friend of hers had created.  It's very neat, but it's not really my style of coloring book, but it is so darn cool!  If you're interested, you can pick this as one of your two choices!  Here is a picture of the coloring book:

So, if you see any ARCs you'd like to trade for, you can always let me know in the comments.  Otherwise, what I plan to do is pick two winners every week for the rest of December, and I am going to fill a box with 4 or 5 books from the pictures above.  Newer, older, ARCs, finished, etc.  They will most likely be surprise boxes. But we'll see how I feel when I draw the winners, I may let them come pick what four books they want!  Or at least pick one or two to go with two that I pick.
And in each box, I will include some swag and book samplers I have.  Here are pictures of the swag I have.  I would be willing to trade any of it for ARCs I'm looking for as well!

You can see some temporary tattoos in the picture on the left.  Along with some post cards, and an Epic Reads book of new titles.
So, I think I know what new goals and challenges I will participate in for my blog next year, although I do still need to reflect on how 2016 went.  One thing I haven't had time for is as many posts with GIFs as I enjoy.  So enjoy this one, and then go enter the contest in the Rafflecopter below it!
