I'm doing some fall cleaning to get ready for the holidays and that means I'm getting rid of books!  My pocketbook won't thank me for the ginormous shipping charges (even if these giveaways are only available to the US...sorry!), but my bookshelves will!  :0)  Big thanks to Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting this Clear Your Shelf event!

Okay, so here's what I'm going to do:  I have several books from several genres, so I'm going to put together two mystery boxes -- one full of young adult and middle-grade titles and one containing adult titles (must be 18+ to enter this giveaway).  The books in these boxes may be finished copies or ARCs.  I'm actually not done with my cleaning yet, so I'll be adding to the boxes as I go.  I may even add a second box to each giveaway and pick a second winner...just depends on how the cleaning goes.  ;-)


Mystery Box #1 - YA & MG titles

Rules:
  • This giveaway is for US residents only, unless you can provide a US mailing address. 
  • One entry per household.
  • All entries will be verified.  Any entry found to be falsified will result in disqualification of all entries for that participant.
  • Winner will be notified via email.  Winner will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be selected.  And, people, check your SPAM folders...I've had to reach out more than once to some winners because they "didn't get the first email."  I don't want to, but I'm going to have to start just picking new winners.  :C
  • I am not responsible for lost packages.
And now on to the fun stuff!  You only have to follow my blog to enter, but all other entries/follows are appreciated!  :D

  26. Thank you for this amazing giveaway! I am originally from Upstate NY and now living in TN so I love the colder weather this year the most! But I also like that its not too warm out for hot chocolate and hoodies. Thanksgiving is a favorite of mine too! The leaves in all the different colors are probably always going to be my absolute favorite of mine though! Thank you for the chance to win!

  27. I love the cooler temps and I love the changing of the leaves. I love living in a state that they actually change colors instead of going from green to brown... I love thanksgiving & christmas. They're two of my favorite holidays and I had my son right around thanksgiving in 2003 so I always look forward to his birthday although it makes me sad to realize that he's going to be 9 this year. :( Only thing I am not looking forward to is the fact that my dad isn't gonna around. This was also my dad's favorite time of the year.

  79. I can't really narrow down what I like best about fall..the whole season is like a beautiful, long awaited gift just waiting to be slowly unwrapped and savored. I tolerate the long hot southern summers with the promise of the anxiously awaited autumn seasons...the smells of cider, cinnamon, and pumpkin pies as well as the decorations for my beloved favorite holiday, Halloween! Hayrides, leaf piles, bonfires, hoodies and boots! Long dark evenings spent with good books and hot beverages! I would love to experience fall year round :).
