I used to be rather addicted to Goodreads. I would spend a massive amount of time there – looking for new books, reading summary after summary, researching books that I had read in childhood, and enter massive amounts of giveaways. I would be in about ten giveaways per day. It’s only fitting I tell you about my first giveaway on the Goodreads tags.
I was tagged was two wonderful bloggers to do this fun tag: Katlyn @ Everything Under the Sun & Zuky @ Book Bum Zuky. Both of them have fantastic book blogs, and I’m constantly adding books to my TBR on Goodreads because of them. Check out Katlyn’s post here and Zuky’s post here.
WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU MARKED AS READ?
A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston! My friend showed me a video of one of the book bloggers she follows about UK vs US book covers, and this hardcover was SO gorgeous – especially underneath the dust jacket. I had to have it…so I officially had to put it on the TBR.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
This will probably have changed by the time that I have posted this since I might embark on a book binge tomorrow, but as I’m writing this post, I am currently reading: Myths of Mish by Katie Hamstead and Less than Charming by Rebecca Demarest.
WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO READ NEXT?
Oh gosh, I’ve been feeling super book moody with my books lately, and I’m kind of failing to keep to a strict book schedule. For ebooks, I will probably be reading Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves and physical book…yeah, I’m not quite sure. 😄 Too many look too tempting. I’m going to say The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine.
DO YOU USE THE STAR RATING SYSTEM?
For sure! Although I would much prefer if there were Princesses and crowns. 😉
ARE YOU DOING A 2017 READING CHALLENGE?
Yes and I feel like Goodreads is always celebrating me or intensely judging me.
DO YOU HAVE A WISHLIST?
Eh, around the holidays I do. Otherwise, just a list of books I like to gaze at and wish I had in my hands.
WHAT BOOK DO YOU PLAN TO BUY NEXT?
DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE QUOTES?
So many, but I read Caraval just a little bit ago, and I found this quote I’m super in love with:
Shades of the rich ruby love she’d felt during the game mixed with hues of deep-indigo hurt, turning everything just a little bit violet.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?
Marissa Meyer, Leigh Bardugo, Simone St. James, Megan Miranda, Leah Rae Miller, and Janette Rallison to name a few!
HAVE YOU JOINED ANY GROUPS?
No, but should I? I kind of get really confused by them, lol.
A simple but fun tag! Wanna be my friend on Goodreads? No? You’re only here for the giveaway? Well, isn’t this awkward? Here’s a link to my profile anyway.
I tried to get some new people I haven’t tagged before in this one as well, but if you’re not interested, please feel free not to do as always!
What are some of your answers to these questions? And omigosh, are you shocked I didn’t use any TLC or SOC references? Be proud, because I surely am!
Also, maybe check out Book Madness which is going on now and have a chance to win epic bookish prizes while voting for epic characters like Inej from Six of Crows?
NOW…onto what you’ve all be waiting for…what you’ve scrolled down to see…a time due for epic parties and disco balls. What am I talking about? My first ever giveaway! That’s right, this Book Princess is pumped and ready to go!
So, I’ve been debating back and forth over what to do with my copy of Gilded Cage by Vic James. As you might have known if you’re a follower of this blog, I had some issues with it. If you’re new, I received this book via a Goodreads giveaway, and I DNFed it after a little while in. I tried for weeks to get into it, but I just couldn’t. It seemed too intense for me, who…is known for loving her fluffy books. HOWEVER, I still think a TON of people will like this book – and actually a LOT of people have and I’m quite in the minority – and it deserves to go to a happier home where it will be loved and cherished and not just sit on a dusty shelf. So, I’m giving away my US ARC copy!
One winner will win a copy of the ARC, and sadly, this will be US only because, you know, shipping- although a future giveaway won’t be so don’t worry, I will eventually have something epic for all of you!
So how do you win? Enter in the Rafflecopter link below and you could win! It’s going to end on March 20th @ 12:00 a.m. EST. Get clicking now and possibly win now!
Okay, I’m still new to Rafflecopter and adding its links to my posts, so if it is not working, please let me know immediately!!
Here’s the summary:
Not all are free. Not all are equal. Not all will be saved.
Our world belongs to the Equals — aristocrats with magical gifts — and all commoners must serve them for ten years. But behind the gates of England’s grandest estate lies a power that could break the world.
A girl thirsts for love and knowledge.
Abi is a servant to England’s most powerful family, but her spirit is free. So when she falls for one of the noble-born sons, Abi faces a terrible choice. Uncovering the family’s secrets might win her liberty, but will her heart pay the price?
A boy dreams of revolution.
Abi’s brother, Luke, is enslaved in a brutal factory town. Far from his family and cruelly oppressed, he makes friends whose ideals could cost him everything. Now Luke has discovered there may be a power even greater than magic: revolution.
And an aristocrat will remake the world with his dark gifts.
He is a shadow in the glittering world of the Equals, with mysterious powers no one else understands. But will he liberate—or destroy?
