Stalking Jack the Ripper Giveaway

In the Fall I am obsessed with picking reads that just have that FALL feeling (here are some of my recs) and since the first day of Fall was yesterday I’ve already started to pick what books I’m going to read to get me in the ~mood~ for Fall — especially because here in Philly it was like 80 yesterday (I’m so not complaining but man I want to bust out my boots and flannel so hard) so I need ALL the help I can get to think of Fall because my brain is still in summer mode.

One of the books FOR SURE on my list, like on my nightstand, is Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco which just came out this week! I mean, JACK THE RIPPER + Victorian era + a highborn lady who is super into forensics trying to track him down. I’ve heard rave reviews from fellow book friends and I’m super excited to dive into it!

Giveaway: Baby Doll by Hollie Overton — a thriller to be added to your Summer TBR!

While lighter contemporary reads tend to be my jam in the summer or on the beach/at the pool, the other type of book I REALLY love to pack in my beach bag is a thriller or mystery. So when I was approached to possible receive a copy for review and to giveaway on my site, in partnership with Redhook, I was excited!

Baby Doll looks exactly kind of like the thrillers that keep me on the edge of my seat and I’m SO excited to crack it open soon — especially because I’ve been having the hardest time concentrating on reading this summer and I KNOW a thriller will be just what I need to jumpstart my reading.

So let me tell you a little about it and then we can get straight away to the giveaway!

 

 

ABOUT

Baby Doll Hollie Overton

Published July 12

Amazon  // Barnes & Noble // Goodreads

Escape was just the beginning.

Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison. Her daughter Sky has been a captive her whole life. But one day their captor leaves the deadbolt unlocked.

This is what happens next… to Lily, to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter—and to her captor.

For fans of Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, BABY DOLL is the most tense thriller you will read this year.

“What a compulsive read! A brilliant first novel that kept me transfixed and entertained until the very last page.” — Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Die Again

Final Day of A Very Handmade Holiday — 2 Giveaways In One Post!

holiday-blog-giveaways

Hi friends! Last year I had this idea for a fun week of giveaways around the holidays and threw it together last minute. I was beyond psyched to have so many great Etsy shops and artists be down to collaborate and I was even more excited when the giveaways happened and y’all were excited!! I know I don’t do a lot of giveaways on this site (at least not as many as I wish I could share with you) but I really wanted to give back to you guys. You give me so much all year round — friendship, encouragement, book recs, laughs, lovely comments and support — so this giveaway is hopefully a way to show my appreciation and to spotlight some awesome bookish businesses.

 

Merry Christmas Eve to those who are celebrating! I’m excited to go spend the evening with family and eat an amazing meal (seriously, Will’s uncle is the best cook and we always have filet mignon which is like the only time I eat it).

Today, for the final day of A Very Handmade Holiday, we have TWO amazing Etsy shops to highlight!! They both helped debut this fun event last year and I’m so happy to have them on board again this year!

 

First up is :

Shannelle from The Art of Escapism

One of the things I love about the book blogging community is how I get to be connected with people of so many ages. I’ve always been so particularly impressed by the younger bloggers in the community and Shannelle is certainly no exception! I could have never juggled blogging and high school/university and all the other activities when I was their age — much less start my own small business! Shannelle’s talent for lettering is incredible and I’m so in love with her minimalist & beautiful designs. Her shop is fairly new so I’m DYING to see what new designs she comes up with next! Check out her blog, too!
