The Follower Love Giveaway Hop: My Love Fest

Love Hop.  Love Hop.  Looooove Hop!  It’s finally here!  Time to show some love to my minion followers with the Follower Love Giveaway Hop!   A HUGE thanks to Kathy from I’m a reader not a writer for putting this event together.  It’s a ton of work - not just on her part - but also my Free Sh** Fairy’s part.

But seriously, folks…I racked my brain to source something cool to give away and that’s when I remembered something lovely.  No.  More like something beautiful.  And when I think of things of beauty and I combine them with creature of the night type books – I think of one thing.  Beautiful Creatures.  You guessed it folks.  That’s my yummy giveaway.  BUT WAIT THERE’s MORE.  And I’m not talking about a set of steak knives.  Like any book addict, we love our coffee and what goes better with a book than a $10 dollar Starbucks gift card?  Am I right?
I know.  I know.  Stop.  It’s okay.  Breathe.  Just breathe.  Inhale.  Good.  Now exhale.  Better?  Good.

Okay, now here’s the gist.  As much as I’d love to giveaway a ton of “free sh**,” frankly…that can’t happen.  The Free Sh** Fairy has a budget too and that means only one (1) winner can win a NEW copy of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s bestselling YA thriller Beautiful Creatures plus a $10 dollar Starbuck GC.  It’s a retail value of 20 bones so…that ain’t so bad, eh?

A thing of beauty.

Anyhoo, this is one series I’ve been dying to read & review for some time now.  So stay tuned as I plan on reviewing this bad boy.  I can’t wait.  So listen up.  I’ll try to keep this simple.  My love fest for my minions/Love Hop starts today Tuesday, February 8th and ends Sunday, February 13th, end of day.

And of course with every contest…there are rules.  I’ve said it before…my blog, my rules.

@Ashley & @BLHmistress - I know. I have an addiction to both coffee and books. :0)

@Nora - Thanks. I'm not sure what could be better - maybe if I had Johnnie Depp there live reading it to me, while I sipped my coffee, lounging on my settee. Yeah, that could make it better. What do you think?

@Lora1967 - Thanks for the praise. I love it giving away free sh**!
