Christmas Giveaway

I'm in a festive mood because of the holidays and I wanted to celebrate by sharing some of my favorite--and most anticipated--books.

Below are some of my top picks from my reading list this year as well as a couple that are on the top of my drool-worthy TBR list to ensure it's a happy reading New Year indeed.

Here are the noteworthy books:
1. The Help

2. Before I Fall

3. Let the Great World Spin

4. Divergent

5. Sarah's Key

6. Original Sin


7. The Paris Wife

It's an eclectic mix but all great fun. Since I'm feeling particularly giving, I'm going to have two winners in this giveaway. Each winner will have their pick of one of the books above. Good luck!

Rules of the contest are as follows:

1. You must be a follower of this blog.
2. Extra entries if you blog, Facebook, or tweet about it (including @SCookRay in the tweet so I can find it)
3. Extra entry if you leave a comment about your favorite book read this year.

Contest closes at 11:59 pm EST on December 22nd. I'll announce the winner on December 23rd. Good luck!


  1. I reslly enjoyed reading Distant Land of My Father by Bo Caldwell this year. It was a fascinating look at a country and time period I knew nothing about. It read like a memoir.

  2. Hi Nancy. I realized I didn't originally include my email address. I'm counting you now, however. Good luck!

  3. One of my favorite books that I read this year was Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos. I know you said you were reading that. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    Thanks for a great contest.

  4. I think my favorite read this year was Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares. Bawled my eyes out. Great ending to a fantastic series.
