Holy Awesomeness, Batman!


So originally I had this awesome Beach Bag Summer Giveaway planned for the summer. I culled the books from books I’ve  read or have doubles of and bought two cute, nerdy Panda beach bags from Forever 21 and it was going to be an awesome summer giveaway. But then I got wrapped up in that “Oh holy Batman I’m getting married in August” whirlwind and I never got around to doing it. BUT what better way to end the summer season (ok, it’s not technically Fall yet but Starbucks put there Fall flavors out so it IS FALL TO ME EVEN IF IT’S 80 DEGREES OUT) than a ROCK YO SOCKS OFF giveaway?

So let’s get to this thang already, friends. I’ve got two beach bags full of books to give to you. I’m only sharing what two of the books are. So, please go into this giveaway knowing that it’s a SURPRISE what’s in the rest of the bag. But both bags are a good mix of contemporary YA, dystopian YA and paranormal YA from major publishers. So just know you aren’t getting random books that nobody has ever heard of. JUST SO YOU KNOW.

Surprise Giveaway #1 – The ARC Bag

Ok, bag #1 is a bag full of Fall ARCS and beyond. I’m showing you two of the books that will be in this bag — Level 2 & Over You. You must be a book reviewer to get this bag.

Surprise Giveaway #2 – The Finished Copy Bag


This one is open to ANYBODY! It’s a bag full of finished copies of contemorary, dystopian & paranormal reads! The two books I’m showing from the bag are Defiance  & Smart Girls Get What They Want!

Quickie Details:

* INTERNATIONAL (because I  haven’t done  one in a LOOONG TIME)
* You can enter for both (provided you meet the requirement for  bag #1)
*  It’s a quick giveaway — ends Sept 13th!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

 

GOOD LUCK! And check out my giveaway for Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter! I’m making up for the fact I haven’t done a giveaway in MONTHS!
