Fantastic Follower Gratitude Giveaway!! 4 Winners!


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!
I can't hardly believe it but I have reached a huge milestone with this blog - 500 Followers!! I am so blessed and grateful to each and every one of you!!! It's not technically time yet for another Fantastic Follower Gratitude Giveaway, but I am just so excited that I wanted to through in another one!! And I wanted to make this one extra special by upping the stakes. There will be 4 winners this time and the first winner will get to pick TWO books from the list, instead of just one!! And I am going to put more books on the list than usual to start off with!

This is how is works:

I will pick FOUR (4) winners. Each winner will be allowed to pick a book from the list below - the first winner will be able to pick TWO! I will pick the winners using random.org but I will keep it in order, so the first random number generated gets the first pick, and so on.

The absolute best part of this giveaway is that you DO NOT have to be a follower to enter to win (although you do get more points if you do, because let's face, I have love for the followers)

All of these books are my personal copies, but did come from various publishers or I won them on other sites. Some are ARCs so they don't have the published covers and/or ISBNs) They have all been read once, and trust me when I say, very well cared for. I am a bit of a neatnik when it comes to my books!

So without further ado here are the books up for grabs!

As an added bonus I will add another title to the list for every 50 followers that are added between now and when the giveaway ends. As of the original date of this post I have 500 GFC followers.
  1. Ravished by a Highlander by Paula Quinn ARC
  2. Spirit by Andrew Feder
  3. Ransomed Dreams by Sally John (my review)
  4. Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran-Foer (my review)
  5. Montana Destiny by R.C. Ryan ARC
  6. Sin Undone by Larissa Ione ARC (my review)
  7. Pretty Little Things by Jilliane Hoffman (my review)
  8. A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff ARC (my review)
  9. Cleo The Cat Who Mende a Family by Helen Brown ARC (my review)
  10. Last to Die by Kate Brady ARC (my review)
  11. A Touch of Scandal by Jenifer Haymore ARC (my review)
  12. Try Darkness by James Scott Bell (my review)
  13. The Kitchen Shrink by Dora Calott Wang, MD (my review)
  14. Once Wicked Always Dead by T.Marie Benchley ARC
  15. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson
  16. The Lion and the Swastika by Anna Bruni Benson (my review) ADDED BECAUSE I HAVE 50 MORE FOLLOWERS THAN WHEN THIS CONTEST STARTED
