100th post and giveaway!

I have hit the way too hyped 100th blog post. It’s almost a certain bust because this is where I talk about how awesome it is to blog, how many wonderful blogs I’ve found and how I’ve grown as a writer and yada, yada, just get to where you are giving something away is what most people will be thinking about this point. So as to not disappoint and to not say anything ridiculous and pointless I am giving a book away.

Surprised? You shouldn’t be, since I started this blog as a place to write my book reviews and has hosted other random thoughts that invade my ever busy mind.

So what book have I picked? Well, as my first (hopefully more to come) giveaway, I am giving away a slightly used copy of At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks. I read this last summer and I bawled. But I don’t know of a Sparks novel, where I have not bawled like a little baby by the end.

At First Sight is about Jeremy Marsh who is very certain he will not do specific things in life and then proceeds to do all of them. (My kind of guy!) He somehow ends up in small town North Carolina engaged to the love of his life. Of course they have some issues, normal drama occurs and most stressful, they are expecting a baby. One of those things he swore he’d never do. Throughout the novel, Jeremy grows up, realizes what’s most important and as with any other Sparks novel, experiences extreme heartbreak, yet somehow comes out stronger than before. It’s definitely a couple Kleenex read. J

So how can you win this lovely book? Here is how…
1.) Leave a comment!
2.) Become a follower
3. Blog about the giveaway and link to my post..

So you can pretty much enter 3 times, and if you’ve noticed like nobody reads my blog, so odds are you have a chance to win!! And if you are one of the many people who come and read and never comment, here is your shot to come out of the woodwork because I do see where you are coming from and when you stop by, so you might as well leave a comment!! ;)

So enter away and hopefully I will have more giveaways with the next 100 posts… Oh and maybe I will figure out how to make my pictures upload how I want.. :P

Contest is open until September 28th at 7:00 p.m. eastern standard time.

With giveaways come new readers! Or so it seems :P I will like it and hopefully that will bring you a few more! They don't know what they're missing for sure :P

I loved the Notebook, and read it before the movie came out. Gotta love books that make you bawl (the worst for me was My Sister's Keeper)

Also I love Nicholas Sparks and have never read this book. My favorite of his books was the one that ended up being a movie with Mandy Moore. The movie was terrible but the book was great- can't think of the name though.
