Gratitude Giveaways: My Giveaway!


Welcome to the my little piece of the Gratitude Giveaway Hop!

I am so excited to host this giveaway to thank those of you who have been reading and commenting on my blog for the past months. I am thankful to have all of you to interact with about the books I'm reading. It truly is a pleasure! If you're just stopping by as part of the hop, welcome!

Onto the giveaway. When planning this giveaway, I tried to come up with a list of people and things in my life that I am grateful for. This was easy once I got past my family, friends, dog, car, job, house, etc. But, then I started to think about my love for my state and how thankful I am to live where I do.

For those of you who don't know, I live in Maine. I am not originally from this state, but love it and plan to spend forever here. I love living among mountains and rivers and forests. And, the people of Maine are awesome. Wicked awesome. (It's New England saying...)

So, for this giveaway, I am offering up a copy of Becca Fitzpatrick's Crescendo to one lucky follower. This book takes place in the wonderful state of Maine. It is the second in the Hush, Hush series, so you may want to find a copy of the first book before you read this second one. And you'll definitely want to read both!

I am also going to throw in a few Maine-inspired goodies, including a postcard and a Needham. (Pronounced "Need-um".) Needhams are chocolate covered potato/ coconut candies. This might not sound all that appetizing, but they're super good. Love em. I may add in a couple of other goodies, not sure. But, everything will relate to Maine.

To enter, fill out this form AND leave a comment with the state that you are from. This contest is not international (but I have an international one coming soon!). Contest closes on Sunday, November 28th at 12PM.

  55. I'm from California (and I hate it). I've lived here for all 21 years of my life. It sucks. I hate the heat. I've been thinking of moving, and Maine ironically was one of my choices! (Next to Washington and Michigan - I'm looking for rainy, and snowy, seeing as I've only ever gotten the former and never seen the latter). I'd love if you would show me some pictures of the town you're living in sometime! :)

  56. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway. I've always wanted to go to Maine. I collect lighthouse postcards and I know Maine has a lot of lighthouses. Maybe someday I'll get there to see them in person. I am as far away from a lighthouse as you can get, I'm from the state of Missouri, the very Southwest corner of it.
