Armchair BEA Day 2- Best of 2012 and Giveaway


So today's topic is the best of 2012. I have read quite a few great books this year, but one I read recently was Timepiece by Myra McEntire. I'll have a review in a week or so, but it was great. A very different perspective from Hourglass. What better way to celebrate a great book than a giveaway??

I will be giving away Timepiece. This will be open internationally to any country Book Depository delivers to.

I'm going to keep entries nice and simple for this one. You get one free entry and one entry for leaving me a comment on your favorite read of 2012 (or what you are looking forward to the most). I love adding new books to my TBR list! This giveaway will run from June 5th to June 12th. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

Good luck everyone!

Ooh, tough one. So far I think my favorite might be Under the Never Sky and the first book that pops into my head when I think of upcoming books I'm most excited for is A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger. :)

If I had to pick just ONE book I would have to say The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, I don't think I've ever cried so hard even when I slammed my hand in the car door ( I was a dangerous 8 year old, thug life!)

Haha - thanks for the giveaway <3

Mine is actually a nonfiction book. I don't usually read them, but this one is so good, that I am saying it is my favorite book so far this year. The Worst Hard Times. It is about the dust bowl, and I really recommend it.

Have a fun BEA!
