Easter Hoppin' Blog Hop!

Hey there everyone.
Welcome to my blog.
This is the first time I ever participated in a Blog Hop. Hope I don't embarrass myself to much.

Easter Hoppin Blog Hop

This Blog Hop is hosted by Danielle of Lush Book Reviews and JoJo of JoJo's Book Corner
What-Easter Hoppin Blog Hop Giveaways
When-12:01 AM April 15th until 11:59 PM April 17th
Where-All around the blogging world!
(These dates were chosen because we did not want to take time away from your family and other things going on Easter weekend.)
Every blog along the hop will be having their own giveaway. There is a complete list of all the blogs participating at the bottom of this post.

For my give away, all you have to do is take a look around my blog and make a comment about something you found here, good or bad. Just keep it polite, please.

For every 15 comments I get, I'll pick one winner(up to 4 winners total). Each winner will get to pick their choice from a list of books.
I won a box of books last year and figured that the ones I don't want to read or already had could use good homes.
Here's the list-
in mass market paperback-
Lucky Charm by Carly Phillips
Tempting the Marquess by Sara Lindsey
Ravished by a Highlander by Paula Quinn(this one in an ARC)(claimed as prize)
A Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore(this one is as ARC)
Bound by Darkness by Annette McCleave(claimed as prize) 
in trade-size paperback-
Such A Pretty Face by Cathy Lamb(Advance Uncorrected Proof)
Revenant by Phaedra Weldon
The Feather by Red Garnier
Open Country by Kari Warner
Hearts Divided by Joanna Sundell(Advance Uncorrected Proof)
Tempting Eden by Margaret Rowe
The WWW Club by Anita Notaro

Hopefully the winners will find something they like on the list.
So go forth and comment.
Please leave your email address in the comment. I'll be announcing the winner(s) on Monday, probably in the afternoon.

Here's the list of the other participating blogs.
The link for this no longer works anywhere except on the hosting blogs.

  8. Hope your first hop goes well. I had my first one recently it was exciting and nerve racking.

    I like your color scheme. I find your text a bit hard to read though.


  9. @Jessica-I was noticing that myself. I made a couple font changes. Seems to be better now. At least I hope so.

  11. I agree. Your blog is easy to navigate and its not clutter with a bunch of stuff.

  12. I like your list of challenges to conquer. I visit the Forbidden Bookshelf several times a week but I haven't joined that challenge yet. I like your m/m challenge too. I only started reading m/m in December but I now love the genre.

    There are several books that I would like to win on your book list. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  13. I just read your blog on your first review. Let me just say, as a reviewer, you did a really good job. It's super hard to write a good review. You didn't reveal the plot and you let the reader know that "this book seems to go on forever" haha. If you think you'd like to review, go on over to You Gotta Read Reviews, we'd love to have you!

    Thanks for the blog contest. Those are some amazing books that you have won!

    Your blog is quick to load and not cluttered up like some others I have visited. Thanks so much!

  17. I thought your first attempt at writing a book review was very good - my first few attempts felt awkward, but I got used to it after awhile.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  28. OMG, I'm so making your banana bars. I copied down the recipe and am thinking my kids will love me. They look yummy. Funny thing is I despise bananas but my kids love them so I stock up and almost feel like gagging when they eat them. But, I love banana bread and banana chips. Ya, I'm odd

    Thanks for the chance to win


  29. Thanks for the giveaway and the choice of prizes. You've got some good books listed there. Oh, and congrats on your first hop!

    It's so exciting to win a box of books. I recently won one that I'm waiting to receive.

    I like that your blog is not super busy. A pet peeve of mine is when I can't find the hop post on participating blogs. I will only look for so long and then move on. And new recipes are always welcome.


  30. my favorite thing on your blog, right now that would be the banana squares recipe,...

  31. Thanks for the chance to win. I like the putting of that recipe.. now Im gonna be thinking about them all day. :)
