6th Annual Summer Kickoff: Beach Read International Giveaway

I can't believe it has been six years since I first started this feature.  It's definitely something I look forward to every year. For me, there's nothing better than reading a book while on vacation or reading a book at the beach in the sunshine.  

In honor of my Summer Kickoff, I am hosting an international giveaway (as long as Book Depository ships to your location) for one of the books I am featuring this summer or some of my favorite beach reads featured in the past.  Refer to the list below. One lucky winner gets to pick the book of his/her choice!  Also, please refer to my giveaway rules and the deadline is June 5, 2016.  Good luck and thanks for visiting!

  1. I would love to win All Summer Long by Dorothea Frank Benton. Thank you!

  2. Woot! Looking forward to read some of your recommendations, Christina!

  3. I think Salt to the Sea would be a wonderful beach read!

  4. Nantucket Blue. I still haven't read this one and I was so excited about it.

  5. The Unexpected Everything or My Life Next Door :)
    Thanks for the recommendations!

  6. Oooh so many to choose from! I don't know maybe The Unexpected Everything or Suffer Love??

  7. Oh my god amazing giveaway! thanks so much!! If I won I'd probably choose Suffer Love. :)

  8. Thanks for the great giveaway, Christina! So many books to choose from! I would maybe pick Summer of Sloane if I won as I don't have a copy of that one --or maybe I'd go for one of my old favourites!

  9. Oh man, I want every book in the first list. Picking is so hard. Right now I say Wild Swans.

  10. Wow. So many good choices. I still haven't read My Life Next Door...

  11. Most of these are on my TBR right now, I think The Unexpected Everything would be at the top of the list.

  12. I always add books to my TBR list from your summer kickoff features. Lots of great books here that I've read already or want to read. I'm still waiting for my copy of Love and Gelato to arrive at the library! I just read The Weekenders yesterday and plan to start The Unexpected Everything or Wanderlost next.

  13. Oooh, Mystic Summer looks great. I always look forward to this feature, too, Christina! And given we're leaving on our first vacation in years this weekend (now with the little guy), the timing is perfect! :)

  14. I'd love to win SUMMER OF SLOANE! It looks so good.

  15. Love Elin Hilderbrand! Would love to read Here's to Us! - Adrienne

  16. Tough to choose, I'd probably pick The Island House!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
