Getting to Know You Blog Hop and Giveaway {CLOSED}

Posted November 15, 2014 by Andi in Giveaway / 31 Comments


A huge thanks to the Cuddlebuggery Book Blog for showing off your new site and running this fab blog hop and giveaway!


A picture is worth a thousand words, and the picture above are those words.

I’m obsessed with my TuTu Mug from Starbucks done by Alice & Olivia, got to meet my baseball love Nomar Garciaparra in 2013 and made these XMAS cards last year proving how crazy I am, haven’t purchased a new bag in about 11 months (since I got my Speedy that I use all the time!), am crazy about my J Crew pixie or J Crew Factory GiGi pants and wear them A LOT, wear the crap out of my Michael Stars blanket scarf that I got in one of my Pop Sugar Must Have boxes, show my Boston love through my Alex and Ani covered wrist, have an unhealthy obsession with ballet flats, LOVE my Patriots and Boston Red Sox (and yes that is a Super Bowl Ring on my finger!), have a new found interest in audio books I’ve already read, and finally have a crazy love for all things Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and Isla and the Happily Ever After (the signed book is one of my most cherished and was a gift and my collection of copies is not 100% complete yet). See, picture says it all.

And now we get to the stuff you are waiting for, the giveaway!

I took a peek at my Goodreads books read in 2014 and realized I read a lot this year. Total I have read 142 books which 27 of them were 4.5 – 5 star books. And in that 142 I had 14 rereads which is a lot for me (I thank audio books and my own office for this number!). In those 27 4.5 – 5 star books 4 really stood out to me as 2 are debuts and the other 2 are sophomore contemporary novels from the same authors. It got me thinking how lucky I was to read 2 fabulous books by 2 fabulous ladies in the same year. What does that mean? It means I am letting you pick between 4 books (2 are pre-orders) by Emery Lord and Heather Demetrios. Please click the picture below to enter for your chance to win a copy of Open Road Summer or Something Real or for a pre-order of The Start of Me and You or I’ll Meet You There. There will be one winner and the winner will be able to pick between all 4 books or if they have never read any by either author and want me to choose they can decide that as all. Giveaway will end November 29th at 11:59pm EST. US ONLY.


Don’t forget to stop by the other blogs and say hello and enter to win great prizes!

    Pictures do say a lot, but I’m still glad you explained yours!! Thanks for the giveaway! Something about me: I have a twin brother, and we’re not close at all.

  2. Brandy

    Pictures do tell us a lot!
    A little fact about myself: My love of football started at 3 months old when I went to a local high school game. Over the next 22 years I only missed one game! My Dad & I went whether it was home or away.

  3. I love your pictures, Andi!! And I’m totally envious of your style. 😉
    Random thought: How cool would it be if there was an ANNA tour through Paris we could take? We could visit all of the places from the book, maybe even stay in a SOAP style hotel, but the BEST part would be having an Etienne St. Clair lookalike as our tour guide! Kind of like the Elvis tours at Graceland. 😀

  4. Great choices for the giveaway, thank you for letting us enter! A random fact about me is that my middle name is just the letter T. My parents had a hard time agreeing on a first name, so when they got to my middle name, they just kind of said, “Well screw it.” lol 🙂

    Great choices Andi! A random fact about me would have to be that i’m half blind. I had a disease as a kid that pretty much took out my whole right eye. But i’m okay now 🙂

    Woah, Your collection is amazing! (:
    I usually love things to the point where I get sick of ’em. This will never affect my book obsession though. Umm. . . I’m obsessed with creepers and oxfords. Shoes! A hipster with absolutely no funds. How did platform shoes get so expensive?! *sighs*


  7. Dahlia Adler

    OMG I love this giveaway – I *loved* both OPEN ROAD SUMMER and SOMETHING REAL, and Emery and Heather are also just two of the sweetest people ever. I’m *so* excited for their next books, and I hear both are obscenely good, like, possibly even better than their debuts, which, HOW?

    As for a random fact about me…I was named after a turtle who ran away under my sister’s care.

  8. Michelle Lee

    I am a bookworm. I love to collect books! My dream goal is to make a mini-library like the Beauty and the Beast! Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway! Love the picture collage you made about yourself! 🙂

  9. Love the Getting to Know You Post! And what a cool idea with the picture–thanks for sharing a bit about you! 😀 Something about me–I studied children’s lit. in London and am obsessed with the UK! Also, my favorite museum in Boston is the Isabella Stewart Gardiner Museum!

  10. I don’t know why I hadn’t read Stephanie Perkins until yesterday, but now I am kicking myself! I just finished My True Love Gave to Me, and her short story in the collection was my favorite (which is saying a bunch because Rainbow and David also had stories in the collection and I LOVE them). Needless to say, Anna and the French Kiss is now at the top of my TBR list.

  11. Ann S

    Something about myself? I’d rather read than do almost anything else. I obsess about books. If every wall in my house was covered with books I’d be so unbelievably happy. I loved Open Road Summer and have very high expectations for her next book. Thanks for the giveaway and sharing about yourself.

  12. Ooh! It’s so fun reading all these things about you that I might not necessarily have known before. Let’s see – I’m Filipino, and spent a big part of my life growing up there. I love traveling, and dream of one day stepping on the shores of Europe and revisiting Japan. I also really like sweets, with a particular fondness of chocolate and red velvet. I love books, as you know, but I also really like writing!

  13. I recently ordered Something Real from BookOutlet! I was so excited to see it on there because I’ve heard amazing things about the author. 🙂

    If I had to have an unhealthy obsession with any shoe, it would have to be ballet flats! They’re my favorite shoe.
