Winner Announcement!! Congratulations to: Sara, Paige & Tina who have each responded to their notification and will be receiving one of these gifts!

We are having TWO giveaways tonight!! The first giveaway will be for tonight’s NEW YEAR’S EVE Celebration!! Happy NEW YEARS everybody!! Has this been the best year, or what?? Absolutely amazing. I have all of you as my new friends, we’ve read a plethora of awesome books together, cried together, *squeeee’d* together. I couldn’t be happier. Can you imagine what 2013 is going to be like? You think out TBR list is bad right now… eeeeeep!! I’m so excited!

So… do you guys remember the last book I read in 2011? It was this one —> On the Island: A Novel (by the way, coincidentally enough the ebook is bargain priced tonight, for only $1.99 – I’m telling you guys, it’s kismet!).

So anyway, Tracey Garvis Graves sent me a SIGNED copy to give away during our holiday celebration (THANK YOU TRACEY!!! *hug*). We just missed the 25 days of Christmas, but!! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of 2012, than with a giveaway for a signed copy of my last read in 2011. Back then it was still indie, and pretty new, and it blew my mind. I LOVED it (check out my review <– look. at. that. December 30th 2011). And now… that book has been signed with Penguin!! This couldn’t be cooler! And of course, it made my best of 2011 list. So I have a copy, for one lucky commenter tonight.

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! —> OKAY!!! We’re choosing a third winner for another giveaway!!! Author Tina Reber (my partner in crime back in my “On the Island” review – we were both LOVING it) is adding a signed set of her books “Love Unscripted:The Love Series, Book 1” (which made my best of 2011 list) and “Love Unrehearsed: The Love Series, Book 2” (which made me best of 2012 list) to tonight’s party!! *squeeeee* (so this will be giveaway #2).

 

AND!!! The third giveaway? Well we just so happened to make it to 13,000 Facebook likes last last night, and so, you know what that means. Time to have a celebratory *squeeeeeeeee* AND a giveaway. I’m giving away a $30 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card. AND!! I’ll also be making a donation to a charity (Make a Wish).

How to enter for a chance to win? Just leave a comment below (and oh… I dunno… tell us what will you be doing to bring in the New Year…), and tomorrow by 10pm EST (01/01/2013), I will randomly select THREE winners (first random selection will get the signed “On the Island” book, the second will receive Tina Reber’s signed “LOVE” books, and the third will get the gift card). The winners will be contacted and once I receive a response back confirming address info, the gifts will be sent!

NOTE: The winners will have 48 hours to respond to the winning email notification. If no response is received, I will randomly select another winner. Make sure to check your email, so you do not loose your chance. This is open to everyone that can receive an emailed giftcard from either of these two companies! International for the signed “On The Island” book, too!

Just sitting here at home trying to decide if it’s too early to go to bed and read ;) Oh yeah, and freaking out about a RAT, an endangered species Silver Rice rat that is currently inside my house while my three cats and dog are totally ignoring that a freaking RAT is in here. No doubt one of them brought it inside; they’ve brought in numerous SNAKES and several RATS before. Not that it bothers me. Not that I scream like a little girl every time I SEE one.

Oh, heh heh. Happy new year!

Happy New Year! The hubby and I celebrated with Greenland so we could go to bed early. I even made him watch the ball drop from last year on YouTube. Not that it mattered. At midnight it was like a coordinated lighting of firecrackers all over our little suburb. I believe this year will bring so many wonderful things (including the return of Downton Abbey and Walking Disaster)! I hope you have an amazing year :)

Dannette January 1, 2013 at 11:26 AM

Happy New Year! I spent it doing both partying then reading

CharliA January 1, 2013 at 11:28 AM

It’s probably too late to enter your amazing giveaways, but I STILL LOVE your blog!!! :) My goal for the new year is to be more patient with my husband, a better mother to my little ones, a more productive teacher, and to write when things come to my head. Oh–and lose some weight! Hee, hee! I’m just all around wanting to better myself….the new year is just a good excuse to start doing that! :) Happy New Year!! Many blessings to you!!!

Sandi January 1, 2013 at 11:28 AM

We spent the evening with in laws and friends

Aimee Dennis January 1, 2013 at 11:31 AM

Happy New Year!! Yours has started off with a ‘BANG’ …. I hope that continues throughout the new year. As for me and mine, our goal is to really focus back on a healthier way of life. (i.e. moving through space, limiting all those yummy treats, etc.) *crossing fingers* I am confident I will improve my ability to knock out as many books as possible and increase my book inventory so far that I will be forced to go to therapy to help me realize what’s factual vs. fictional. *sigh* Sometimes I think it might be a hopeless cause.

Wendy January 1, 2013 at 11:33 AM

Happy New Year! Celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary!

Tricia F January 1, 2013 at 11:44 AM

Hi, rang in the New Year with 8, 12 yr olds celebrating a New Year’s Eve birthday party for my daughter. Then of course reading well into the night while the girls “talked” all night!

Thanks so much for the giveaway, you rock Maryse!

Oh no. I didn’t see this yesterday while getting everything ready! We had a rather lovely get-together with my school moms group and all our kids. We had a great time! While I was there I was sneaking in several chapters of Hopeless by Colleen Hoover (while pretending to check email and Facebook) and once again trying to convince my friends why they need to start reading 50 Shades, amongst the many wonderful books they are missing out on. I’m the bookworm of the group- the hopeless romantic, and apparently the “wild one” out of this group. Lol
