Book Blogger Giveaway: Win One of Ten Summer Books

giveaways books

One of the lovely things for writing for a bundle of websites, is that I get sent lots of ARCs. And with summer here, publishers are sending their "summer reading recommendation" bundles on out. And while getting hefty envelopes full of a half dozen books is lovely, when you've just come back from BEA (a post on that soon!) with like two dozen books...

Well, I'd like to get these into the hands of some more reviewers, and get these some love! I only have so much time to write.

So! Time for a giveaway, just for book bloggers. Because ya'll are my people.

I've got ten books (seven ARCs, three finished hardcovers) to dish out. You can enter to snag one by entering the Rafflecopter below, which you can do just by leaving a comment about which ones you're interested in. At the end of next week, I'll pluck out ten people at random, and send each of you a book you were into. Done and done.

The catch? You have to be a book blogger, and you have to be in the US. Sorry, can't ship international. It's too expensive.

Here we go!
