MY FIRST GIVEAWAY: A signed copy of Anna and the French Kiss

I am so excited to be doing my first ever giveaway on the blog! Recently, I went to the Decatur Book Festival, where I met Stephanie Perkins! She was lovely, and she signed a copy of Anna and the French Kiss for me to give away (Don’t worry. I checked that it was okay!) If you haven’t noticed, I loved all three books in this series: Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and Isla and the Happily Ever After – and by love, I mean completely fangirled over each book. The opportunity to possibly have someone else fall in love with them through this giveaway makes me so happy.

The giveaway will run until 5 p.m. CST on Monday, September 22, 2014 – three weeks from now. See below for how to enter!

Anna and the French KissAnna and the French Kiss

Author: Stephanie Perkins

Series: Anna and the French Kiss


Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming,beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

  1. My favorite place in the world is Mike’s Organic Oasis (aka my garden that my husband built me. I am blessed to live int he prettiest place on the planet. I live here because when I was a girl I read a book about Montana and moved here when I was 21. I have to admit my favorite place I have always wanted to visit is Paris. It’s about the only thing left I have to do on my bucket list so I’m not in that big of a hurry. I share your passion for books and really like your blog.
    I followed you on twitter as @JackieMarie and bloglovin as JacksterMT and on wordpress as Jackie Beyer :~)

  2. Okay, I hope this isn’t a cop out answer but… my favorite place is within the pages of my books 🙂 It’s always lovely to travel and go to different places, but through reading, I can do all of that in the comfort of my own room haha (cheesy, I know). Besides, being an introvert, having time to myself and my favorite fictional characters without distraction is the best feeling in the world!

  4. Excellent giveaway! I can’t enter (UK, sob sob) but my favourite place is probably a town close to where I live that I always went to as a child during the summer. It’s near the sea, has a kiddy fun park type thing and it’s still fun as an adult. Guess I’m a bit of a home-bird!!

  5. Oh my, what an amazing giveaway. My favorite place EVER is the Island Santorini which is located in Greece. So beautiful & magical. Would love to read a book with it as the setting. I long to go back…It also has the most amazing Sunsets/Sunrises there! Thanks so much for the giveaway!! mmalavec(at)med(dot)umich(dot)edu

  6. Oh what an amazing giveaway. My favorite place EVER is Santorini, Greece. Just magical & beautiful. The best place to see a sunset/sunrise❤️ mmalavec(at)med(dot)umich(dot)edu

  7. My favorite place (I’m going to go with visited) is Freiburg, Germany. It’s a gorgeous southern town, and I went to visit family and had the most amazing week. So many friendly, wonderful, interesting people, and such character in the town!
    I follow you on Twitter & via Bloglovin under @happybooklovers (for both!)

  8. Awesome giveaway! My favorite place in the world? Tough question! I love this cove near my home, Socrates cove. But i also really love the trees of mystery in northern caliofrnia. I havent been everywhere i want to travel to yet, so its difficult to say with certainty that ive already discovered my FAVORITE place in the world, but so far my home state’s coastal beauty has impressed me the most out of all the places ive been.
