I have personally purchased a copy of two of my favorite books of 2016 that I'd like to send to one lucky reader of the Tomes and Tequila blog.
The Survivor's Guide to Family Happiness by Maddie Dawson was originally sent to me by Netgalley, but I have since bought a copy and donated it to my library so I can send our local patrons to it...and bought a copy to share with one of you. I absolutely LOVE Maddie Dawson's writing style, not to mention she regularly likes my tweets...which makes me EXTREMELY happy. This book includes one of my favorite literary characters, Nina Popkin...who I would love to be friends with in real life. This is a great book with a beautiful cover that I hope you'll really enjoy.
The next book in the giveaway is Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton. I originally checked this one out from the library after seeing it was one of Oprah's bookclub selections, but have personally purchased this copy to share. This memoir resonated with me in a very personal way. It deals with the author's struggles with an eating disorder, drug addiction, and then her husband's infidelity...but is mainly about her struggle to find herself. I shouted from the rooftops about this one for a few weeks after reading it, and it was definitely a 5 star top read for 2016.
So for the nitty-gritty rules of my first ever giveaway, and hopefully I won't bodge this one too much (since I'm new at all this stuff). I know I have readers all over the place, and I greatly appreciate it...especially having lived all over myself...but for this first giveaway I'm restricting it to the United States only. I know it basically amounts to a customs form and a few extra dollars in postage...but I know there are also a few places with restrictions on written materials...so I'd like to do a little more research before I open up a giveaway to all locations. Please don't hate me for this one.
Otherwise, you'll have two opportunities to enter and the contest will be open until JANUARY 23, 2017!! at 9 pm cst ...and I'll be using an online random name picker to select the winner.
