HAPPY NEW YEAR! - Where I've been and a GIVEAWAY! =D
Hello to all my book lovers and friends out there
It feels so good to be back!
I've missed every single one of you!
First of all Happy 2015!
In case you were wondering where I've been,
I have been away due to happy news.
Well long story short, my sister got engaged the second
week of October and decided to have a NYE wedding.
Btw I mean a NYE 2014 wedding. That was less than
9 weeks to plan not only a wedding, but a bridal shower
and bachlorette party too.
Somehow we pulled it off and it was the most amazing
experience of my life to date. It is so amazing to see my
sister so happy and I am absolutely thrilled for her.
I have to say a big thank you to my friend and sister Patricia over at The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club. She has been keeping The Fantastic Flying Book Club alive. She has been on her own in the running of The FFBC since October and I am beyond thankful to her.
But enough of the mussy stuff back to why we are all here BOOKS!
Unfortunately for me 2014 was not a GREAT year in reading, but an
amazing one for my personal life. I passed my Nursing boards,
started a job that I still love, and my sister got married. So I completely
failed my Goodreads yearly challenge.
Even though I do have another big even coming up (I'm apartment
hunting), I am determined to make 2015 a better year in reading.
In order to do that I have made myself some 2015 goals.
1- Write reviews right after reading the book! Currently I have about
20 (+) books in my currently reading pile on Goodreads. But majority of those
are books I have read and have yet to right the review! So I am hoping if I make myself
right reviews before moving on to another book this will allow me to stay up to date.
2- Finish series that I already own that I have not completed: This year I really want to make a dent in my TBR pile. I have TONS of books that I own that I have not read. And many of them are completed series! So 2015 will be dedicated to finishing those up.
3- Read more ARCs before release date: I really need to get my percentages on Netgalley and Edelweiss up!
4 - Plan more giveaways! Okay this one is more for you guys then for me, but
I definetly want to do more giveaways on my blog. I have so many blessings in my life and I really want to pay it forward!
And what better way to start then NOW!
So far in 2015 I have attended 2 book signings and they both happen to be
signings for PIERCE BROWN and the sequel to Red Rising - Golden Son.
My friend Lisa over at The Consummate Reader went down to The Book Soup for Pierce's
Release party. The place was awesome and it was packed. I don't think the book store was
anticipating that many people to come, so they didn't have any copies of Red Rising left and I needed to pick up a few.
So Lisa and I decided to head down to the new Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego to see Pierce again yesterday and I called head to make sure they put enough copies of hold for me!
So of course I HAD to pick one up for you guys!
So friends here is my first giveaway of the year!
Win 1 autographed PB of Red Rising by Pierce Brown!
All entries will be checked!
