Go Krista! It's Your Birthday! Do a Giveaway!

It's November - later this month, I get to eat cake, open a few presents and lament that fact that I am another year older. Blech. Maybe you've gathered that birthdays aren't really my thing. I've always enjoyed giving presents as much as I enjoy getting them, so what better way to distract me from my crow's feet and those few gray hairs that just. won't. stay. away. than to giveaway a book.

And, since it's my party (and I'll cry if I want to), I'm going to give away one book from one of my favorite series. Each of these series has had at least one book that has gotten a 5-star rating from me. And, since I'm feeling a little crazy, I'll even do a pre-order for a book in one of these series, if that's what you want. So, here are the 12 series you have to choose from:


Black Dagger Brotherhood series, J.R. Ward (adult)
River of Time series, Lisa Tawn Bergren (YA)
Revenants series, Amy Plum (YA)
Covenant series, Jennifer L. Armentrout (YA)
Mythos Academy series, Jennifer Estep (YA)
Blood of Eden series, Julie Kagawa (YA)
Fifty Shades of Grey series, E.L. James (adult)
Lux series, Jennifer L. Armentrout (YA)
Shatter Me series, Tahereh Mafi (YA)
Vampire Academy series, Richelle Mead (YA)
Iron Fey series, Julie Kagawa (YA)
Seven Realms series, Cinda Williams Chima (YA)

Just fill out the Rafflecopter to enter to win one book from one of the series listed above, including pre-orders. I'll be ordering from The Book Depository, so make sure they ship to you before you enter. Thanks for stopping by - good luck!

Happy Birthday!!! Don't think about getting older just enjoy :)

My favorite kind of birthday cake is one that I can eat. I'm lactose intolerant and my mum still always got me a cake I couldn't eat :( This year my friends made me cute pig-faced cupcakes that had NO dairy in them!

Happy Birthday Krista! I hope you have a Fantastic Birthday and an AMAZING next year *confetti*

personally, I love cheesecake (any flavor, any occasion, not just birthday) ... but one of my favorite birthday 'cakes' was the year my mom got me a dozen cream-filled Krispy Kreme donuts.
yummy!

Lynne said...

by the way, I just noticed how close you are to reaching your '12 reading challenge. Holey smokes!! You GO girl!!

Krista said...

You know, Lynne, I'm not a huge cake person either. Honestly, most years I ask for one of those big chocolate chip cookies. But, doughnuts would work too - love them!!

And, thanks - initially, 150 books seemed impossible. Not so much, anymore. :)

Krista said...

Yay for good friends, Gabbie!

Light cream layered with fillo dough and with oranges, kiwis, grapes in gelatin. Or made completely out of cream on a dough base and topped with strawberries. Mmm...

Happy Birthday in advance Krista! Don't think too much about growing old and just enjoy each day as it passes. ;)

Ice cream cake! I finally had it for my birthday this year (after wanting one since I went to a friend's 9th birthday party) and it was fabulous! I loved how the taste of ice cream and fresh cream frosting blended together. Another plus: the cake icing was blue! (my fav color :p)

Zemira Djedović said...

Any birthday cake would so since I didn't have one in years. But the first one that popped into my mind is chocolate cake.

This year I did had a dark chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting on the inside and it was covered in dark fudge. LoL I'd have to say that one was by far the best cake I've ever had.
