Christmas Countdown and contest!
Christmas is the perfect time for romance. Bing Crosby singing, candlelight, strolls in the snow. Some of my favourite romances happen during the festive season.
So to celebrate the holidays and all the fantastic books I’ve read this year, I am having a Christmas Countdown of my top 10 couples.
To make it easier I made rules
1) They had to come from books I’d read this year (otherwise it might have been top 100)
2) They had to be YA books, seeing as that’s what the blog is all about.
3) Only one book by each author can feature (otherwise it might have been a Elizabeth Scott fest)
So over the next 24 days I shall be telling you about my favourite couples of 2009 and why I love them so.
Even more excitingly some fabulous authors and bloggers have joined in and written about their favourite couples.
AND as Christmas is a time of giving, I have some gifts to give away. In the prize pack there is:
A $15 Amazon voucher*
A signed copy of Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott
A signed copy of Rites of Spring (break) by Diana Peterfreund
A signed bookmark of Rampant by Diana Peterfreund
A signed bookmark of The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard
AND if we get to 50 entries I will add some more things, so spread the word, please!
Here are the rules to enter
Leave a comment on this post
You get TEN extra entries if you blog about your own favourite couple AND link back here (please include a link to your post in the comments). I hope people do this I’d love to know which couples you guys loved this year and why, and you don’t need to follow my rules, choose whoever you like.
The contest is only open to people with a US or Canada mailing address (sorry but books are heavy)
The winner will be drawn at random, on Christmas Eve, and will hopefully get their books in time for the New Year.
Have fun. I hope you guys enjoy it and HUGE thanks to all my guests and readers.
* if you’d rather have a voucher for B&N or an Independent bookstore I’m totally happy to send that instead. You’ll just have to wait longer 🙂
