2K Q&A and Giveaway

dreaming, planning, goal setting, Julie Zantopoulos, writing, inspiration, writer's block,

When I found booktube midway through 2016 I knew immediately I had found ‘my people’. I felt immediately at home, like “meeting” somebody and just knowing you are going to get along. I am so happy that you feel the same way! My channel started a short 3 months ago and already I have over two thousand book-loving friends and I’m thankful to each and every one of you.

I’m so incredibly thrilled to have grown my booktube channel so much in such a short time. It has been one of the most pleasant discoveries of 2016 for me and I’m forever thankful that you have all welcomed me into your bookish circle.

In a show of thanks, I am offering a giveaway to accompany my 2k Q&A and Giveaway video. I will be gifting 3 lucky winners 2 of my favorite books from 2016. The three winners can pick any two of the following ten books and I will order and have them shipped to their home.

*All books linked to Goodreads so you can decide which books you would like.*

  1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  2. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
  3. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavander by Leysle Walton
  4. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
  5. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
  6. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  7. Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
