Contests in the Blogosphere

I have a problem....I think I'm addicted to Blog contests. No, seriously, I think I am.

It all started earlier today when I came across The Got Books Blog Event. I had been tracking it for awhile now because I'm always looking for good blogs to follow and a variety of different genres. Yes, I do prefer YA and paranormal but it is always good to have variety. As a librarian, you need to keep up with your Reader's Advisory skills for all types of books, not just the ones we always tend to gravitate toward.

So I came across Babbling Flow and just had to share this. She is giving away 7 ARCS!!! Not only that but they are ALL on my wanted list. Now, I could just not tell anyone about this but I do believe in sharing so you really should check it out. Oh, and if you do happen to win. Please let me know so I can be COMPLETELY envious!

Check out these titles

  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (of course everyone probably knows by now that I am dying to read this before it comes out)
  • Firelight by Sophie Jordan
  • Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
  • Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
  • Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
  • Torment by Lauren Kate

It is now after midnight and believe it or not, I have been checking out new blogs and entering contests for at least 3 hours...if I were posting a regular review, I would put up pretty pictures. For now, I will have to just tell you to check this out and enter so at least one of us can read happily into the sunset....Curlypow, please enter this contest so at least if you win, I can borrow them....

Update....It is now Saturday morning and I woke up way too early. Must have been dreaming about ARCs (hahaha!) I thought I'd post the pictures for some eye candy. Have a great weekend everyone. Don't forget to check out the Got Books Blog Event (link is at the top of this post). It ends tonight at midnight!

Update ... Curlypow here, I went and entered the contest, just like you asked. Love, love, love it. What fantastic titles for the give-away. Well found, Christinabean
