I smell a giveaway in our future!

So I've been absolutely surprised with that tiny little box on the right side of my blog. You know the one that says "Followers"? Yeah, I've hit 75! I can't believe it. You guys are totally awesome, and I can't say thanks enough. I promise that this blog is only gonna get better!

And speaking of better, why don't I throw a little something out there, you know, to say thanks. I'm thinking something black and white and "read" all over (yeah, I'm cheezy like that!)

I'm talking about a giveaway, people!

That's right, I'm gonna be holding a super-awesome contest/giveaway for all my followers! I love doing them, and what better way to say "Thank you for being a friend" (cue Golden Girls theme song) than with something free, right?

And since we're all about the books, of course the prize is gonna be a book. But, and this is a big one...I'm not just gonna give away one book, oh no. That would be oh-so-lame. No way...

I'm gonna give away 5 of them!!

Yeah, you read that right. I'm giving one lucky follower of mine 5 books! And which 5 books will that be, you may be wondering? Hmmm....

How about a set of the Vampire Academy novels! (boy I love exclamation points!!)

IT'S TRUE! IT'S TRUE! The winner will be getting all 5 Vampire Academy novels!! How cool is that? (they're not signed unfortunately, but awesome anyway, right?)

But, and my apologies go out to you, there is the tiniest of catches. To actually get this contest/giveaway on the road, I'm gonna need a little help from all of you. Nothing major, really. I just need you all to hit up your fellow blogging friends and tell them to come on over and visit my blog. And, of course, to follow me!

Because I'm gonna be the villain here and hold this awesome prize hostage until I hit


Yes, you read that correctly, too. Think of this post as a teaser. I won't actually be holding the contest/giveaway until that itty-bitty 75 turns into a great big 100. When that happens, I'll make a post telling you all about what you have to do to win these great books. So go forth, tell all your friends, and get them over here, pronto! And once I hit 100, it's on!!

note: Forgot to mention...IT'S INTERNATIONAL, TOO!!

    Looks like I need to put this awesome opportunity on my blog sidebar :)

  9. I think I'm follower #100! And what an awesome give away. I just happen to LOVE this series and can't wait for the last book.

  10. Okay, so I totally thought I was on another blog, but I'm glad I found this one. Just wanted to clarify that I don't think I really was the 100th follower. I was for a different blog, but I was actually 141 for this one! Geez, you'd think I'd actually look before making a comment. Thanks for following my blog though :)
