Good morning! Awhile back, I hit one hundred followers!! πŸ˜€ To celebrate that, I’ll be doing a giveaway, as well as a Q&A.

Basically, how this will work is, I’m going to list out my top ten favorite books from 2018 and 2019. Then, you’ll have a chance to enter my giveaway. If you win my giveaway, you’ll get to choose ONE book off of my top ten list and I’ll buy a copy from Amazon and send it to you! πŸ˜€

It was very hard to do, but I was able to limit the list to ten books, plus one honorable mention. I wish I could do more, but it would get too long, so…

Let’s see which books you have a chance to win! πŸ˜‰

 

NOTE: Most of the time, I will not be including series that I enjoyed unless my favorite book was the first one. πŸ˜‰
