I started this blog less than a year ago and have met the most wonderful people who, like me, adore books. Having reached 1500 followers on Twitter, I thought the best way to say thank you would be having a giveaway. Three separate giveaways, in fact. Each bundle consists of a paperback copy of some amazing Irish authors work and a little notebook. The giveaways are open INT and you can enter all three if you like. I buy my own books rather than ask authors or publishers, so three is all I could manage this time. Just click on Rafflecopter links below and best of luck to you all!!!
The first giveaway up for grabs contains Claire Allen's It's got to be perfect along with a cute cupcake notebook. Here's the blurb :
All Annie Delaney really wants is her happy ever after. A big dress. A big day. A big commitment. She even has a scrap book filled to bursting with ideas for her dream day, her dream home and – of course – her dream man.Only problem is, the current man on her arm isn’t so much of a dream as a nightmare and as for the man currently in her bed… that’s a whole other disaster in the making.
With her relationship, and her life, heading into a tailspin Annie realises she has to re-examine just what can make her happy, while trying (and failing) not to make things worse.
But it’s never going to be easy – especially when she sees her friend Fionn heading straight towards her own big day with her Mr Right. But then Annie misjudges the difficulties Fionn faces with Mr Right’s very own Little Miss, not to mention the ex waiting in the wings.
Turning to her sister, Darcy, for support Annie has her eyes opened to just what can make you happy – or indeed make you sad. And she ponders that age old question – is there ever such a thing as the perfect relationship?
Next up is Anna McPartlin's The one I love and a tulips notebook. Here's the blurb:
Once Jane and Alexandra were inseparable - sharing adventures, secrets and big dreams for the future. But when Jane got pregnant at seventeen, they drifted apart.
Seventeen years later, Jane discovers Alexandra has disappeared and she sets about helping Alexandra's broken-hearted husband, Tom, to find his wife.
But in searching for Alexandra Jane is about to confront some big questions about herself. Like, what happened to the high-spirited seventeen-year-old she once was? What will happen if she stops trying to control the world? And does love really mean letting people go?
Two fractured people come together accidentally and in one another they find strength, friendship - and even the beginnings of hope ...
The last giveaway is for a copy of Ciara Geraghty's Lifesaving for beginners and a rose cupcake notebook. Here's the blurb:
Kat Kavanagh is not in love. She has lots of friends, an ordinary job, and she never ever thinks about her past. This is Kat's story. None of it is true. Milo McIntyre loves his mam, the peanut-butter-and-banana muffins at the Funky Banana cafe, and the lifesaving class he does after school. He never thinks about his future, until the day it changes forever. This is Milo's story. All of it is true. And then there is the other story. The one with a twist of fate which somehow brings together a boy from Brighton and a woman in Dublin, and uncovers the truth once and for all. This is the story that's just about to begin . . .
