Birthday Week Extravaganza

Hey lovelies! I'm back! Caralyn did an awesome job keeping everything up and writing some great posts while I went off galavanting (in a scholarly manner, of course) in Colorado. Alas, the galavanting has come to an end and I'm back to real life. BUT I'm pretty excited because my birthday is on Thursday. Yay for getting old(ish).
This week is gonna be off the hook (can't you hear my 90's VJ coming out...off the hook, yo!) because birthdays are great. I'm going to have an awesome giveaway every day until Thursday, which is the actual day of my birth and then I think we can have some Twitter fun, with some fun Twitter prizes (chapter samplers, books, maybe some bookmarks...). 

Here's the basic schedule - I'm going to post a giveaway every day, and they'll only be open for a week so jump on this while you can! And spread the love, because that's what giving is all about! 

So today I'm giving away an ARC of False Memory by Dan Krokos - this book is crazy - and an ARC of The Waiting Sky by Laura Zielin
Tuesday I have an ARC of Defiance by C.J. Redwine. Trust me. You WANT this book.  
Wednesday I have a SIGNED copy of 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody - I LOVE this book you guys. 
These three giveaways are for US and Canada only - sorry international friends. BUT
ON my birthday, Thursday, August 16, I will have an international giveaway. I will be giving away both Wildefire and a pre-order for Embers & Echoes by Karsten Knight. WHEEEEE. 

(So, I have to admit now, that I wrote this whole post after downing a Venti Americano. I'm a little jittery and way hyper. If you couldn't tell.)

So even with all this awesome, I think on Thursday we're going to have some Twitter fun. Every time you tweet this week, using the hashtag #BestWorldsBirthday you'll be entering to win Karsten Knight's books, plus some fun extra swag I have - including some signed chapter samplers of 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, a My Life Undecided bracelet, and some My Life Next Door bookmarks. I'll be announcing those winners on Twitter throughout the day on Thursday. You can tweet starting now, up until 6:00 PM Central time on August 16. Your tweet can say anything as long as you use the hashtag. 

For all other giveaways, all you have to do is fill out Rafflecopter. 
Have a happy week everyone!!

    What I am most looking forward to is, like the above poster, much cooler/nicer temps after the brutal heat & drought we've had this summer. We've gotten more rain (finally!! YAY) in the last ten days than we've had in the last three months!

    Thank you for all the sweet giveaways, I hope you have a beautiful week, too!! :)
