Buy Books For The Holidays-Romance/Chick Lit Giveaway

October 18th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

If you saw my initial post about my Buying Books For The Holidays project you know I am looking for suggestions of books you think are must reads and would make great Christmas gifts.  There have been some great suggestions so far but I wanted to really target each genre and I thought giveaways are always enticing.  :)

What’s Up For Grabs?

If the winner is from the United States:

  • ARC of No Mercy by Sherrilyn Kenyon
  • The Brazen Bride by Stephanie Laurens
  • Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

If the winner is from outside the United States

  • I don’t want to exclude international folks so if you are the winner and live outside the United States you can choose any book from The Book Depository that is $15 or less.

How to enter?

  • All you have to do is leave the title of at least one Romance or Chick Lit book you would suggest as a Christmas gift for the romantic at heart book lover(more suggestions are always welcome) and your email address

Extra entries-Some people love them, some people hate ‘em so these are all optional

  • One extra entry if you link to this giveaway and leave the link in a comment
  • Five extra entries if you do a blog post mentioning this giveaway and the Buy Books For The Holidays project and include the button from my sidebar

Ends November 8

    Oooh! let me see…the Gemma Doyle Trilogy, I think it qualifies as chick-lit. What else…”The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton, which is also a mystery – loved this one. And now historicals! I just finished reading “Castles” by Julie Garwood, and loved it, it’s so funny! But my favorite in the genre is “A Kingdom of Dreams” by Judith McNaught.

    I put the contest on my sidebar under “giveaways”:
