Small Blogs, Big Dreams Giveaway

Hosted by


What a great picture of old books!!!  Old books remind me of loved books, which are favorite books treasured over time.

Tia Ang was nice enough to ask me which books she should read. Not in those words... no. First she buttered me up about Colorimetry and then mentioned that she might check back here when she was looking for a book to read, but that was all the excuse I needed to send her a mile-long email listing off all of the following books.

So, Tia Ang, if you're there... here's the list of books I think you'd love!!!!

And just to share my enthusiasm over creating such a list, I'm offering to give one away to a reader for this awesome Small Blogs, Big Dreams giveaway!!!


Click the cover to go to Goodreads or "My Review" to see... uh... my review. *__*

My Review of Girl of Fire & Thorns

 Okidoki... these cover will not go where I'm putting them... please excuse the jumbled mess and good luck putting "my review" with the actual review, 'cause it's all spazzin' out on me.  Is it me, or is blogger being obnoxious?!?!

I'll post my review to Soulless later this week along with Of Poseidon, which will be hilarious.  Not me... Anna Banks is hilarious!!

To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter. Must be 13 (or know someone who is) and able to receive you book from The Book Depository or e-copy by choice. See all my rules under About Me. Ole!

  5. Having the same problem, noticed that this post is recent (today), but the rafflecopter is closed to entries. Was this a flash giveaway? Do our recommended books have to come from this list? 'Cause I haven't read any of the books listed here! I love The Talisman Series by Brenda Pandos, The Just for Fins series by Tera Lynn Childs, and Son of Eden and Daughter of Earth by Brianna Merrill. And so many more!!!

    1. I had to laugh - that would be a wildly fast Flash-Giveaway... like, QUICK! before she does something she doesn't know what she's doing - enter the giveaway!!!

      Although I suppose such a thing must exist. Here it's considered an accident. SORRY!!

  6. Weird - saw same message that giveaway is closed?

  7. I would definitely recommend Brian Christian's The Most Human Human, it's a non-fiction book...but very insightful, and not at all boring like a ton of non-fiction books tend to be.

  8. Trouble in Raffle-copter land, but I assume it asks all the usual questions so here are the usual answers: GFC/GR/Linky as Sophia Rose, FB& NB as Sally Michele Shaw, Twitter as @sophiarose1816 and esubscriber: sophiarose1816@gmail.com.

    What would I recommend? Hmmm- Derrolyn Anderson's Mermaid Trilogy isn't bad, Darkspell, The Demon Side, and Fair Maiden. I tried to think of ones that were not already mentioned and these are all Indie Authors too.

    Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

  9. I'm commenting just in case any of the above don't make it back now that I've fixed the Rafflecopter... (I so want to say "fart" and that's just not language I permit in this house!!!)

    I think I exited out or started too many rafflecopter giveaways all at once or something. NO IDEA!!!

    If any of the folks above my Comment to Self return to enter, let me know... otherwise I'm giving you every entry available in Thx for letting me know and happy assumption that you follow me every way imagineable.

    Thx for the heads-up!!!!
