Best Of 2014 Book Giveaway

When Ginger at GReads! first approached me about participating in the ‘Best Of 2014’ book giveaway she was hosting, I couldn’t have been more excited! There’s absolutely nothing I love more than to give back to my readers, the ones who make all the hard work and countless hours of time and effort worth it, and what better time to do so than during the season of giving?

While I didn’t always read as much or as often as I would have liked this year, I did read a number of novels that will remain lifelong favourites and that I’ll continue to share with my loved ones for many years to come. Some books, like Sharon Biggs Waller’s A Mad, Wicked Folly and Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, introduced me to new, wonderful voices I had never heard before. Some books, like Julie Murphy’s Side Effects May Vary and Courtney C. Stevens’ Faking Normal, challenged me to step outside of my comfort zone and confront hard, uncomfortable truths that I will forever be made better for experiencing. Some books, like Tara Dairman’s All Four Stars and Heidi Schulz’s Hook’s Revenge, helped me to rediscover a love for a genre I thought lost to me forever and remind me that magic and whimsy are perfect for any age. And some books, like Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone and Rainbow Rowell’s Landline, were simply perfect for me in every conceivable way.

Please read on to find the complete details of the giveaway and which books you’ll have an opportunity to win!

Now here comes the fun part! This giveaway will run from Wednesday, December 3rd until Wednesday, December 31st, at which point two lucky winners will be chosen. These two winners will each be given their choice of any two books from the ‘Best of 2014’ list shown above. Best of all, this contest is open internationally, provided that The Book Depository will ship to your country.

So, what are you waiting for? Go enter!
