Giveaway Hop! Mary's Merry Christmas and Birthday Giveaway Hop (INT)

Mary is one of my book buddies and hosts Throwback Thursday: Historical Romance Edition with me and Ki Pha and Today is her birthday! Happy Birthday, Mary!

To celebrate, she's hosting a giveaway hop with a grand chance to win a Kindle Paperwhite!

For my stop, I'm offering the winner an $8 Amazon Gift Card or a book from The Book Depository (max value $8).

But first:

It's a few days to Christmas and I'm two gift deliveries away from completing everyone on my Christmas list this year. Not to say that I'm done with all my Christmas preparation: I haven't wrapped the gifts for my parents and I haven't really planned for Christmas dinner. I know I should be overwhelmed at this point -- but I'm very excited for Christmas Day. My kids just had their quarterly exams so this Christmas break is a chance for our entire family to just rest and relax.

I've also had a great holiday run on my blog (which started last November): I'm winding down my Thank You, Authors! Thank You, Fellow Readers! feature and it's been a wonderful, rewarding experience for me to know that fellow romance readers are discovering new authors and new books to read (and also to find fellow fans of some authors. ^_^).

So here's my plan for the next 17 days. (Yes, that's how long my kids are on vacation for Christmas):
1. Read (I have a few ARCs that I should be reviewing for January releases and a few books on my bedside and e-reader that I have been wanting to read but haven't had the time -- until now!)
2. Review
3. Relax
4. Repeat from #1

How about you? How are you preparing for the holidays? ^_^

For my stop, I'm giving away an $8 Amazon Gift Card or a paperback book from The Book Depository (max value $8).

*This giveaway is via Rafflecopter and is open to International Readers.
*This giveaway will run until January 4.
*One entry per household per IP.

  3. Hi, Ki! It's the first day of the break and I found time! I really made the decision to make time for myself during this break so I am looking forward to getting a LOT of reading (and reviewing) done.

    Hi, Miki! Thank you for dropping by! I'm looking forward to Christmas -- but I'm also looking forward to AFTER Christmas. ^_^

    Happy Holidays!

  4. I still have to wrap all my presents too. Your Christmas plans sound fantastic! :) Hope you and your family have a great Christmas.

  5. Hopefully, the children will be wrapped up enjoying their new Christmas gifts and not give Mommy a lot of grief. As the mother of an elementary teacher, believe me when I say that the teachers are enjoying the vacation as well! ;-) Merry Christmas to you!

  6. I'm working a lot and squeezing in holiday baking whenever I can. Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. I like your "Read, Review, Relax" plan. My holiday is very much the same with Read and Relax being at the top. I will go out shopping tomorrow for meal items...that's when I'll decide what we're having! LOL.
