300 Follower Thank You + Giveaway!!

I honestly cannot believe that my small little corner of the internet now has 300 followers!!!

Me realizing I now had 300 followers:

But all joking aside, I really am thankful. Thank you to all that  support my blog and take the time to read my posts! Y’all have no idea how much that means to me.

I started this blog back in November 2016 with the help of my friend Rosie, who is no longer with us. And before you ask, no, she didn’t die. She’s currently chilling on the warm beaches of California, going to college and living life. But, sadly she is no longer a part of the Book Cover Girls blog. And before you ask again, nothing tragic happened either. We’re still friends and all. In fact, I have the whole story HERE if you are interested.

Anyway, back to what I was saying.

I started this blog less than a year ago with the help of my friend, hoping and praying that someone, anyone, would maybe read a post that I wrote. I was shy at first, afraid of communicating and afraid to spread my wings. Thankfully, I quickly learned that the book blogging community is full of the absolute nicest, most wonderful people to ever grace the Earth.

So, to thank all you great and awesome people I wanted to do a little giveaway.

Some time ago, in the beginning of June, I said that I was going to give away a copy a signed ARC of Maggie Stiefvater‘s upcoming book, All the Crooked Saints.

And then I completely forgot about it.

So, once I noticed that I had 300 followers I knew I needed to celebrate. While thinking of what to do and how to do it, I remembered that I had gotten two signed copies of the book at BookCon 2017, with the hopes of sharing it with one of you. Now the time has come!

Here is What You Need to Know About the Book

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

30025336

Here is a thing everyone wants:
A miracle.

Here is a thing everyone fears:
What it takes to get one.

Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.

At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.

{All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater will be published by Scholastic Press on October 10, 2017}

Also, I know that there was a lot of controversy about this book some months ago, but I’m hoping we can move past that. There were people talking about how this book was cultural appropriation and that white authors should stay in their lanes. The strange thing is that most of the people complaining where white and none of them had yet read the book. So, I’m hoping that we can all be mature adults here and give the book a chance. As a proud Latina, I must admit, I am super excited to read this and found nothing even remotely offensive in the book’s premise or synopsis. If you still have doubts, or worse, are one of those people preaching about social justice without having even cracked the book open, read this.

Anyway, to the giveaway!
