Vacation Giveaway + Read-a-thon!

I am going away for 4 days and don't have any scheduled posts plans. I just wanted to keep things simple while I'm away. I need to relax for a few days, so no worrying about whether or not my posts get up on the blog!

In celebration of my first real vacation in 5 years, I've decided to do two things.

1. Have my own read-a-thon.
There's a long car ride to where I'm going, so I'm thinking I will have plenty of time to read. And I'm giving myself permission to read just for fun. If I happen to pick up a review book or decide to review one of my "just for fun" books afterwards, then so be it. But...I don't have to...


I am taking with me...
Divergent by Veronica Roth (for sure)
A Thousand Splended Suns
Vampire Knight vol 1& 2
Kimi no todoke vol 1
whatever I happen to feel like grabbing on the way out my door (I keep changing my mind between a few other YA)
and my Kindle, which has a good amount of books to choose from!



2. A giveaway! 

I've decided to give away 3 Kindle ebooks and there will be 3 winners. If I'm in a really good mood when I get back, I may up this to 5 winners, but that depends! You'll have a choice from any of these lovely books:


From those I've read (each has been given a 3/5 and higher from me):

She Smells the Dead by E.J. Stevens (#1 in series)
Spirit Storm by E.J. Stevens (#2 in series)
