So, I used to do these giveaways a lot back in the day as I made an effort to divest myself of books I no longer wanted, that I had no intention of re-reading, etc. And it went really well.

But all of a sudden, I find myself with another stack of unwanted books that need a good home. Some ARCs, some finished copies, maybe even an audiobook or two. I don't know...I've been clearing out my shelves since before the big move so there's really no telling what's included.

I could take them to Half Price Books. I could donate them to my local library. I could trade them on #booksfortrade. Or I could do a giveaway. OR. Or, I could do all of those things.

I know some of these books would find great homes with other collectors, and I was inspired by a fellow lover of books yesterday to make sure that they do, even if there's nothing to gain from it. Because, as she put it, "they're just hangin' out." :) So, in the next few weeks, I hope to reach out to some people and help them out with their collections, even if they're unable to help out with mine. Of course, I'll still be doing some #booksfortrade because I'm not that altruistic, but this is a start. ;0)

Mostly, I want to offer up some of these books to you guys! I'm not going to post what's up for grabs: a) I'm lazy and b) mystery boxes are fun. But I do want to send you books that you'll actually enjoy. So, when filling out the Rafflecopter form below, make sure to tell me what genre you like best. Maybe even tell me your favorite book/series of all time in the comments so I have a good idea of what you'll enjoy the most. =)

  1. A Mystery Box giveaway sounds fun! I don't really want to name favorite series or books because a) I'm lazy too and b) I want to be surprised. Anything I don't want I will pass along to another book lover :) *fingers crossed*

  2. I'm pretty sure asking my favorite book series is the most difficult question ever. lol I love angsty and awesome contemps like anything by Emery Lord and Kasie West. They write some of my favorites. I also really like fantasy. I just finished The Lunar Chronicles and loved them. And just read the first two from The Winner's Trilogy. So I'm really into fantasy types too. Legend is a favorite series. Oh, and Leigh Bardugo's books. And... I'll stop.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

I've always read paranormal romance books, and I'm not overly picky on the series I read although my favorite is Yasmine Galenorn's books (I can't remember the series name but it's the one with the 3 sisters one is a witch, one is a vampire and one shape shifts into a tabby cat/panther) I have maybe 11 of her books.

  12. As a huge fan of YA, I find myself attracted to the unexpected. Romance, fantasy, scifi, mystery. I can't pick a favorite series or book or author because I'm always exploring new books. So I guess my reading tastes are a bit of a mystery box :)
