There are SO Many Contests Going on... and I've WON Some!

I used to be a bit skeptical about blog contests... or maybe I should say, pessimistic.  Didn't think I'd win any, ever.  But last year I've won several, and just in the past month, I've won FOUR giveaways!!

FOUR!! I mean, what are the chances!! But then I thought about it... all of the contests I won, I ENTERED.  That's the key.  You can't win if you don't play.  :::grins:::

So take a gander <---- at my sidebar under CONTESTS and take a looksie at all the great contests/giveaways going on.  There are some fantastic prizes for doing virtually NOTHING all because we bloggers are a lovely bunch.  And speaking of giveaways, have you entered for these lovely prizes yet???

Click the image and head on over to my team blog with my homegirls and enter for your chance to win!  If we hit 100 followers by our launch date, there just might be a little extra something up for grabs! 

So what have I won lately, and from which blogs you ask??

Magically, I won Kim Franklin's giveaway of a signed copy of The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney! 

The Mockingbirds

Then I won these five lovelies from Stephanie!

13 Little Blue Envelopes The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner Trilogy, Book 2) Twenty Boy Summer Wintergirls Before I Fall

And there were these two from Cleverly Inked!

Infinite Days (Vampire Queen) The Healing Wars: Book II: Blue Fire

And this week I won this ARC from Market My Words!

The Radleys: A Novel

What about you? Have you entered any good ones recently? Won anything? Hosting one?!


  1. I've backed off of contests. I get tired of the whole Tweet it/facebook it/blog it/sidebar it/skywrite it version. If it's just being a follower and leaving a contest, or if it's merit-based, then I'll go for it sometimes.

    I did win one of those just recently, and I was very excited to get the prize package I'd selected.

  2. I usually only enter the ones where you only have to comment and the winners are picked at random. And of course, they have to be from blogs I visit regularly. I won a contest once after following a link and didn't find out until after it was too late to claim my prize.

    At the end of last year, I won Frostfire by Lynn Viehl (off the Paperback Writer blog), and Pride and Pleasure by Sylvia Day (off the Murder She Writes blog). Frostfire was amazing, but I haven't gotten to Sylvia's book yet.

  3. You got such awesome prizes! Congrats! I love winning contests and getting a package in the mail filled with books--how can that not be exciting?

  4. Umm WOW! You won so many things!

  5. You've done well, girl. Congrats on the amazing winning streak!

  6. Whoa! I'm super jealous! Awesome books to have won! :)

  7. I'm hosting a giveaway, but you already knew that!
    Congrats on the great swag. Looks like you have plenty to read for a while!

  8. Thanks, all! Be sure to enter the ones I have listed in my sidebar--there are some awesome prizes and some great blogs to follow if you don't follow them already. :)

  9. Wow! You're on a roll. Lucky you. You're right, in order to win you have to enter so maybe I should get to doing that. :)

  10. Wow, you did good! I won quite a few books this past year. The latest just arrived - a copy of "Oogy!"

  11. No, I haven't won a single book. :(
    How can I when you keep sweeping them up? LOL!!

  12. wow, you really have luck following you :)
    I've never won anything, in my life nor in give aways, but I did host my own give-away last month and gave out two lovely books to my dear readers :)

  13. yay! that's a ton of prizes!!! maybe we should call you lady luck! :)
    i was one of the lucky winners of dezz's giveaway! :)

  14. LOL. you are so funny. You are right though you dont enter you dont win. I still have not shipped mine out yet. Had a busy week last week. My son is at school tomorrow so it's easy for me to get them out tomorrow but you will get those books. :)

  15. I usually don't take the time to enter but now I'm wishing I did. I see from your book montage we have read a lot of the same type of books. I am going to go check out your books to see what I haven't read.
