Lazy Summer Reads Giveaway Hop (ends 6/8) WW



Welcome to Lazy Summer Reads Hop


Hosted by eReading on the Cheap and Midwestern Moms.


The blog hop runs from June 1 - 8 at 11:59 EST .


I really wanted to do something a little different with this book hop.  Yes, I know we always like the gift certificates and book depository, but I have something really different this time.  


In the past, I have done mystery book giveaways, and this is a variation on this.  I want you to pick an author that you have perhaps heard about but have not read anything by him/her.  My preference would be that you also do not own any books by this author.  (If you do, we can discuss that if you are the winner.)  If you are the winner (this is open internationally), I will choose a book by this author and send it to you.  


I will give you an example.  I have heard about Marcia Lynn McClure, but I have never read any of her books.  I do not own one.  I would put her down as my choice, and if I were the winner, I would receive a book in my choice of format.  And yes, you can pick more than one if you like (but you will only receive one book!).


So what are you waiting for?  Enter the rafflecopter form below by June 8 at 9 P.M. Pacific time, and don't forget to hop on to the other blogs for more chances!


(If I do happen to get over 1000 verified entries, I will add a winner.)

  7. I have to go with John Green. Everyone says his books are great & I believe them, 'cause I always watch his vlogs, and he's really fun, so I'm guessing the books are, too ;) but I keep postponing getting them & reading them. I don't know why.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Shiloh Walker would be one, or maybe Crymsyn Hart...there are so many others, but I've either read a story by them or own one of their books (even if I haven't read it yet).

    Awesome giveaway, the mystery makes it that much more exciting!

  30. My pick is Maria V. Snyder, since I have heard wonders about her writing and her books, but I haven't had the chance to read anything she wrote yet.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ooohhh, so challenging for me. I'm one of those 'reading rut' people. I tend to find a specific author or genre I like and stick with it until I've exhausted all avenues possible. I'm trying to change. No really... I am trying! That said, I've no clue who I would choose, so I would probably let you choose for me. So long as we could stay away from romance and sci-fi, I'd be happy as a clam. :)
