**Bromance = platonic relationship between two characters who identify as male.

All the Crooked Saints ARC Giveaway!!

Hey, guess what? I’m giving away a book!

A week ago I wrote a post about a giveaway that I was hosting here in celebration of getting 300 followers on my blog. Again, I want to thank you all. But, for those of you who might not have seen that post and don’t know about the giveaway, here it is again!

The Book Cover Girls is hosting am hosting a giveaway for a chance to win a new, free, signed ARC of Maggie Stiefvater’s upcoming book, All the Crooked Saints. While at Book Con 2017, I acquired two copies of the novel. I am keeping one to read an am giving the other one away.

And yes, I know, there is controversy about this book. But, let’s also keep in mind that none of the people that were originally making their judgement had even read the book at the time. I haven’t read it either and if I find a problem with it then I will state that in my review, but I will go into this book without bias, as should we all. So, if you are as excited as I am to read this book, and live in the continental united states, please feel free to enter my giveaway!
