Four-Year Blogoversary Giveaway

Monday, December 30, 2013

I never thought I'd be able to say this, but today marks my fourth year of blogging about books here at i swim for oceans! It was rough going there for me for a while, and I actually went on an indefinite hiatus, but I missed this blog, and I missed all of you, so how could I really stay away? In the past four years, I've seen book blogs come and go, I've been to BEA twice, I've read countless incredible books (and quite a few duds, too) and I've really come to appreciate both what the authors do for us and what we can do for them, if we really put our minds to it.

I could get all sappy and ish about this, but let's be honest, it's really just a whole lotta love that I have for the whole dang lot of you! And, to show my appreciation for all of my lovely followers and friends, I'm offering up a little giveaway for all of you. 


There will be three lucky winners with three awesome prizes.
The first name picked will get to choose which two books they'd like most from the books below.
The second name picked will get to choose two books they'd like most from the books below.
The third name picked will win the last two books from the list below.
Some of these are ARCs. Some of them are not.
All of them, however, are pretty dang good books that I hope you'll read and love!

This giveaway is open internationally and will end promptly at midnight EST on January 30, 2014,
which means you have a month to enter!
Good luck!

  10. Congrats on four years! I'll hit my 4 year mark in June. 4 years really feels like an accomplishment. Maybe because it seems so much harder to reach than 3 years. As much as I enjoy blogging, I've really struggled to find the motivation to keep going this past year. And I bet it'll get harder as time goes on.
