Beautiful Covers Challenge giveaway: HoHoHo Readathon #HoHoHoRAT #Christmas #Giveaway #Readathon

Hi guys!

Welcome to Beautiful Covers Challenge.

I hope you are all excited about HoHoHo Readathon and to keep the excitement going I am happy to host Beautiful Covers challenge.
We will keep things quick and simple here, so you wouldn’t waste too much of your precious time and can read instead.

Beautiful Covers Challenge encourages you to show us beautiful festive book covers you admire.
You can take a picture of the book any time during the readathon, and post it on your blog, twitter or instagram.
Picture has to be taken by you, and not just taken from Goodreads or other site.
You don’t have to own the book, you can take a pic with beautiful cover on you phone or tablet, or even on computer. You can be creative as you like.

After you post a picture, leave a comment down bellow with the link (so I, and anyone else who wants can see it), and your linky number from this post here: sign up post.

After that, use the refflecopter to enter.

YOU CAN ENTER HERE.

The prize for this challenge is ONE book of choice from TBD, up to 20$. It can also be a preorder. The Giveaway is international, but TBD has to ship to your country.

This challenge is for HoHoHo Readathon participants only, so if you still haven’t signed up, you can do it HERE.

My Picture:

 

On Monday 19th, I will post my HoHoHo Readathon Wrap Up and announce the winner in that post, as well as in the Refflecopter link.

If you like books that will make you feel emotional and you will think about the story for days after finishing it, try The Second Love of My Life by Victoria Walters.

Bout of Books Day 1 Update

bob16 As you already know, Bout of Books Read-a-thon started yesterday and I am participating for the first time.
I already said I am reading 7 books at time (you can see which ones here), but I guess 7 wasn’t enough for me, so I went and puchased an ebook version of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.
The thing is, I was in such a great mood to read this book that I just had to go and read it (so far it’s amazing) and even though I don’t usually prefer paying more then 13$ for an ebook, I knew that that was the only way to have it in my hands as soon as I purchase it (plus I had a 25$ Amazon GC so thank Heaven for that ūüėÄ ).

My Progress:

Day 1:

the unexpected everything pages read: 69

I also participated in the #boutofbooks #insixwords challenge.
These are six words I used to introduce myself: Cat lover. Book reviewer. Dreamer. Believer.

 

If you’re participating, share your reading process in comments.
If you’re not participating, feel free to tell me what you’re reading at the moment and how you’re liking it.

 

Three Days Three Quotes: Day 2

I was nominated for Three Days Three Quotes Challenge by lovely Joy from For Book’s Sake.

For my day two, I choose the book by one of my favorite authors: Katie McGarry.

crash into you

And since I love this book so much, I decided to cheat and post not one, not two, but FOUR quotes today, all from Crash Into You.

Here they are (and they are NOT in order, to avoid any potential spoilers):

‘ “Because He said I was either breathing fire and destroying everything or I took the fire inside of me and created life.”¬†
“Created life?”
“Fire can destroy, but it can also create – provide warmth, protection.” I still remember him explaining when I asked the same question. “He told me until I chose my path, I would always be capable of life and destruction.” ‘

“What people project to the world never shows what’s lurking on the inside.”

“Life isn’t made-for-television movies or books with happy-ever-afters. Sometimes the choices we’re presented with are bad or worse.”

“Joy blossoms through me, from my toes up into the rest of my blood to the point that I look down to see if I’m flying.”

Today, I nominate:

Annika from Hiding in Books

Amanda from ChocolatePages and

Geraldine from Corralling Books .

Three Days Three Quotes: Day 1

I was nominated for Three Days Three Quotes Challenge by lovely Joy from For Book’s Sake.

For my day one, I choose one book that is full of beautiful quotes, and here s the one I fell in love with:

the sky

“Nothing has made me feel

like I do right now…

Like I have a window in my chest

where sunlight is pouring in.”

I find it so beautiful, I even have it on my home-made bookmark that I like to use when I’m reading.

I guess now is the time for me to nominate some of you guys.
Today, I nominate:

Joyce from BOOKSHOARDERGAL

Welcome to my Tea Party (aka An Invitation to Tea – Love-a-Thon challenge)

loveathon

As you, and all the birds on the branch already know, this weekend is a Love-a-Thon weekend.
This event is hosted by these wonderful bloggers:  Alexa from Alexa Loves Books, Cee from The Novel Hermit, Hazel from Stay Bookish and Mel from The Daily Prophecy.

I wasn’t going to to participate in this challenge, but an inspiration hit me, and I wanted to share my silliness and creepiness with you.

I admit: I had so much fun writing this and there’s a chance some of you (or many of you) won’t like it, but it doesn’t matter. What matters in the end is that we all have fun during this Love-A-Thon.

 

Welcome To My Tea Party!

tea party

Welcome to my Tea Party! Don’t be shy!
Have a cup, or two, we could dance,
but be careful, ’cause there’s a chance;
After that, you’d want to die!
                                                                              (Now imagine a wicked grin)…

We are here, in NeverNever;
A perfect place, full of fairies;
trolls and witches, can’t be better;
but be careful, don’t eat berries.

If you do so, we’ll never let you
to go back home, leave this place.
Food from here is magical, ties you here,
to be our slave!

Now when I’m done with this silly poem (what can I say, seeing all those poems in challenge number three, I felt inspired for some silliness), let me tell you about my tea party.

I decided to organize my fictional tea party in the faery world, in the land called NeverNever.
That is my favorite fictional world, and you can read about it, as well as about my guests in these books, written by Julie Kagawa:

6644117 7747064 8685612 9659607 12614410 15811405 the iron warrior

My guest here are all faeries: ¬†Megan Chase, Prince Ash, Robin Goodfellow (aka Puck, and you might know him from Shakespeare’s play).
That grey cute cat you see is also a fairy. His name is Grimmalkin and trust me when I say this: HE KNOWS EVERYTHING.
That good looking guy with white hair is Keirran. Be careful with him. You never know when he might stab your back!
They never lie, they aren’t able to. But they twist the truth, so you have to pay attention.
They also like to bargain, but don’t fall for that, because you might regret it.
They are good fairies, but you never know for sure if they’ll need a slave for ‚Äěthe better cause‚Äú.

If you wonder where is their creator, Julie Kagawa, let me tell you: We didn’t invite her. We wanted to leave her in the human’s world, where she’ll write other stories, so humans would enjoyed them. We care about her too much to tie her to this place forever.

Wait! Can you hear that? A male voice, so soft, beautiful, keeping rythm with acoustic music.
That is James Bay on his guitar, playing ‚ÄěNeed The Sun To Break‚Äú at the moment. We kidnapped him, took him with us to be our slave. Someone has to keep us entertained, after all!

I bet you wonder what am I doing here, in this creepy world free willingly. Am I right?
Let’s just say I always wanted to be a fairy. And I found the way to be a new queen of winter.
Ash forgave me. At least I think he has.
