How toSurprise Your Husbandon hisBirthday

This weekend my little blog turned 1! Seriously, the year has flown by and book blogging has been some of the most fun I’ve had in years. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a lot of work to read, write, review, maintain social media, come up with interesting (hopefully:) content etc but I wouldn’t trade it! I’m someone who’s completely obsessed with books and reading and the blog has brought me the experience of not only reading books months in advance but also getting to interact with authors I never would’ve gotten to speak with before…I’ve been starstruck too many times to count this year by an author reaching out with a comment or email…that’ll never get old!!

More importantly though….If someone would’ve told me a year ago that I would make such good friends from not only the US but all over the WORLD, I would’ve thought they were crazy! In all honesty,  that’s been the very best part of blogging…the friends I’ve “met” along the way who are ALWAYS willing to chat about books and reading and also life, movies, kids…you name it! The book blogging community is one of the best communities to be a part of and I’m really looking forward to seeing what the next year brings. So, with that said I’ll stop rambling and get to the good stuff…I was inspired by my friend Janel at Keeper of Pages to do a different type of giveaway…one where I make you work a little…but not much:)


There are 2 Giveaways…yes, you read that right…you can enter one or both but to win you MUST be following my blog (yes, I’ll be checking:) and you have to answer MY  QUESTION. That’s it! What can you win? A new book of course! This is open INTERNATIONALLY but Book Depository must ship to your location and you have to be willing to provide me with your address so I can send you your prize! In the comment section that follows….


To celebrate my Blogiversary I’ve decided to also treat myself to a book from Book Depository that I think sounds fantastic but haven’t been able to get ahold of just yet. All 3 of the following books are on my tbr but I’ve only ordered 1 of them…tell me which one you think I’ve ordered and if you win I’ll send YOU a copy as well! A winner will be chosen at random from all the correct guesses.



This past year I’ve posted many, many reviews and I can only hope that I’ve inspired you to want to read something you’ve come across on my blog…if not, please don’t tell me haha! Leave me a comment telling me what book I’ve inspired you to want to read based on one of my reviews and if you win I’ll send it to you…it’s as easy as that! There’s a listing of categories and/or archives along the right to help you navigate my reviews.

** A winner will be chosen at random for each giveaway and you can enter until Tues 11:59 pm (US) EST

Good Luck & Thank You to everyone for following and supporting It’s Book Talk!
