International Giveaway and the End of the Summer Kickoff Feature


I had a blast this year sharing my favorite beach reads for 2019 with you guys. I can't believe it's my 8th year of the Summer Kickoff Feature. I hope you got some good ideas as to what bring along on vacation this summer or which book to take with you to the pool.  I didn't read nearly as many as I was hoping, so you know what that means? I hope to read a few over the winter and daydream about the warm sunshine on my face.  

As a thank you for following along this summer, I am giving away one of the beach reads I featured here during my Summer Kickoff.  This giveaway is open internationally, but please make sure that Book Depository can ship to your location.  Also, please refer to my giveaway rules.   More importantly, thank you to all my blog readers for all the comments and recommendations this past summer. I truly appreciate it!

  2. I would really like to get the Dessen book. Just haven't picked it up yet. My daughter and I love reading her. Started by listening to her books while driving to Myrtle Beach.

  6. I get most of my books from charity shops, so they tend not to be recent publications. My favourite so far has been The Lewis Man, a thriller set in the Hebrides. I would love to win Tidelands by Philippa Gregory as I've enjoyed her other books.

  8. I would love to read Tidelands by Philippa Gregory. The book i enjoyed this summer was Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield, an unusual and poignant book with a mystery involving a child who is found dead in the river but comes back to life.

  9. I have just been reading older books this summer - my favourite so far was a Thousand Splendid Suns, would love to read When we left Cuba

  10. I really enjoyed Us by David Nicholls. If I was lucky enough to win I would choose The Rest of the Story.

  11. Not read any recent published one (trying new authors out) so The Coffin Path has to be my favourite. A good old-fashioned ghost story.

    Would love to win Summer of 69 please.

  14. It was Winter in my country, but I'm already preparing myself and everything for the Summer, including my TBR! And one book that I'm dying to read is The Unhoneymooners, by Christina Lauren. It's everywhere, and people are loving it!
