50 Follower GIVEAWAY!

Posted April 22, 2010 by Jen in Giveaway Tags: ,

Welcome to my very first giveaway!

I’ve reached a couple big milestones for myself: my blog will be 3 months old on April 28 and I now have over 50 followers. I’ve enjoyed sharing my book reviews and ponderings with you all – blogging has been such great fun. And as I continue to find my spot in the blogosphere I want to continue to grow and reach new book lovers and followers. So the next step for me is my very first contest… Please help me reach my next goal of 100 followers.

For those that have been following my blog, you will know that I recently discovered the ACRO series by Sydney Croft (Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler). I am currently reading the 4th book in the series. The series focuses on a group of special agents with unique talents, for example talking to ghosts or controlling the weather. I blogged a while back that it’s like X-men for adults! These books are the perfect mix of romance, action, and hot smex. What makes these books truly special is the detail, time and effort spent not only on the primary story but on the side characters and sub-plots as well.

So to celebrate my first 3 months and my first 50 followers, I am going to give away a copy of the first ACRO book: Riding the Storm. You can read my review here.

The goal of my contest is to share a favorite book with you all. But I also want to increase my followers. So, if I reach my goal of 100 followers I will add a second great book to my giveaway… Atlantis Redeemed by Alyssa Day. Another fabulous book, and you can read my review here. But wait, there’s more… If I get 150 followers before the contest ends, Ivy from Book Reader Times will donate a wonderful surprise package!
