Random Giveaway

Well, when it rains it pours. So, yes, I had sick kids this week and a dog with a foxtail buried in her ear and as the big capper to my week my laptop that has MY LIFE on it, got a really bad virus. So now I'm sharing hubby's desktop. He was about ready to divorce me when I mentioned putting firefox on it. However, he did download Adobe Digital Editions so I can read my huge ass e-book tbr pile on his computer whilst mine is....under the weather. Compromise, it's a beautiful thing :P

So, because I've had some negative crap happening this last week, I have decided to spread positive crap vibes and do a little giveaway. After all, I want to share things that make me happy with you all in the hopes that they will brighten your day, too.

In that spirit I am going to do a drawing for a random winner of Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. This book is awesome and really brings home the point that we should never take life or our loved ones for granted. Also, it's the first book I've given an A+ to and I think that should be celebrated. My review is here.

All I ask is that you be a follower of my blog and that you leave a comment on this post. That's it. Contest is international. Contest will end May 6 at 11:59 PM PST. Winner will be anounced on Friday May 7. If I do not here from the winner by May 9, I will redraw for a new winner.

Have fun and good luck!

Oh my... we are really in the same boat at the moment. My laptop decides to suddenly die; leaving me crying my heart out since my thesis stuffs are all stuck in its hard drive! :(

I've always wanted to read Before I Fall. The whole glowing reviews that I've read seriously makes me itch to read it even more. So, let's hope that in the midst of my unluckiness, I'll be lucky enough to win it this time!

Thanks for this fab giveaway!
