Giveaway: alita.reads. turns two!
As of today, alita.reads. is two whole years old! If I had fireworks, they would be going off right now.
I had an amazing first year, but I feel that I hit by blogging rhythm during my second year. Well, at least until recently.
My reading and blogging have been in a bit of a slump these past few months, which makes me even more grateful to the people who have continued to stop by and comment on the rare post that appears. I was hesitant to do a birthday post because of my limited blog activity, but the fact that there are still people reading makes me want to do something special for you. So, let’s have a little party, shall we?
Just like last year, it wouldn’t be a party without music or presents. What kind of music you ask? We’ll get to that in a sec. Oh, you want to know what the presents are? One lucky winner will receive a book that I am desperately looking forward to reading. The choices are:
*A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I’ve made no secret of my love for the Chaos Walking Trilogy, but still need to get my hands on his latest release, which I’ve heard is pretty darn amazing.
*The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. The title for this book was just announced on Tuesday and oh my am I excited for it. It won’t be released until Spring 2012, so I’ll pre-order a copy if the winner should choose this one and it will be sent when the book is released. Also? John Green is going to sign every pre-ordered copy. Awesome, right?
*Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. This is a new addition to my to-read list, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to read it SO BAD!
*None of these titles sound like they’re up your alley? Your final option is a book of your choice from the Book Depository for $15 or less.
Now the music. Last year we did dance tunes, but today the sun is shining and I’m in the mood for some summertime songs.
