There are still lots of other giveaways going on that are International! See the top of the page for my other giveaways!

I will email the winner and they will have 48 hours to respond.
The prize will be: the winner's choice of book from the following books off of my shelf.
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas’s new series begins during the most magical time of year.
ONE LITTLE GIRL NEEDS A FAMILY
One rain-slicked night, six-year-old Holly lost the only parent she knew, her beloved mother Victoria. And since that night, she has never again spoken a word.
ONE SINGLE MAN NEEDS A WIFE
The last thing Mark Nolan needs is a six-year-old girl in his life. But he soon realizes that he will do everything he can to make her life whole again. His sister’s will gives him the instructions: There’s no other choice but you. Just start by loving her. The rest will follow.
SOMETIMES, IT TAKES A LITTLE MAGIC…
Maggie Collins doesn’t dare believe in love again, after losing her husband of one year. But she does believe in the magic of imagination. As the owner of a toy shop, she lives what she loves. And when she meets Holly Nolan, she sees a little girl in desperate need of a little magic.
…TO MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE
Three lonely people. Three lives at the crossroads. Three people who are about to discover that Christmas is the time of year when anything is possible, and when wishes have a way of finding the path home.

Trying to escape marriage, they are snared by love.
When Sam Sinclair's self-made millionaire grandfather sends Willa Kent, a woman none of the three Sinclair brothers have even heard of, as his proxy to an ultra-important meeting of the Sinclair shipping company, most people would think the old man had lost his marbles. But Sam knows his grandfather too well. For some reason, the wily old man has decided that one of his three grandsons should marry Willa, and this is his way of trying to force the issue....
So Willa and Sam team up on what seems like a wild-goose chase to find some loophole in Grandfather Sinclair's crazy notion. But as Sam crews Willa's yacht en route to Maine, he finds to his surprise that his grandfather's offbeat scheme is growing more attractive by the moment. Willa is smart, beautiful...and has a wild streak that sends them soaring together above the clouds.
But Willa isn't about to let Sam fly away with her heart until she knows his true motives. If the man wants to marry for money, then the woman in her says that first he must fall in love.

Buried in the Heartland is a town that no one enters or leaves. Graf McDonald somehow becomes its first visitor in more than five years...and he was only looking for a good party. Unfortunately, Penance, Ohio, is not that place. And after having been isolated for so long, they do not like strangers at all.Jessa's the only one to even remotely trust him, and she's desperate for the kind of protection that only a vampire like Graf can provide. Supplies are low, the locals are ornery for a sacrifice and there's a monster more powerful than Graf lurking in the woods. New men are hard to come by in this lonesome town, and this handsome stranger might be Jessa's only hope for salvation.
Even if she has to die first...

What a wonderful selection of books, they really do look amazing!ReplyDelete

I usually put my books neatly back on the shelf after I read them, but I am hoping to give some away eventually :) I also offer them up to friends.
I would also love any of those books :) they all equally appealing!Delete
I am a book hoarder. I love to re-read books but every once in a while I let some of them go.Delete
I also lend my favorites out. I have my own little lending library. :D
All of those books look yummy. I think American Vampire would be my freest choice. I save all my books until my husband cannot take it any more.ReplyDelete
debby236 at gmail dot com
lol! I had that problem at first. I used to try to hide them. Imagine that!Delete
Now he knows he needs to overlook them.
Great Giveaway! Most books I read are from the library so once I finish them I have to return them :( My bookshelf is pretty packed so thankfully when I do purchase books its via kindle.ReplyDelete
These all look so good! But I think I would really like the first one Christmas Eve At Friday HarbourReplyDelete
I enjoy Lisa Kleypas. I think you would too! Good luck Veronica!Delete
I am usually in a constant need of bookshelf space so I don't keep many books after I've read it unless I plan to reread it in the near future, or if its a classic. I usually lend out my books or donate them to the library...or give them away. =)ReplyDelete
I'm very interested in reading American Vampire. *crosses fingers*

Good luck Lilian!Delete
I wish I could be more like you. I have trouble getting rid of books. I have no problem lending them but I want them back! I re-read a lot though. :D
I'm a huge bibliomaniac as well as bibliophile, so I try my hardest to keep all my books. There are currently three big bookshelves full to overflowing in my home, and I'm already planning to buy two (or three?!) more, just to get organised again! I really like thinking that I've had the same copies of old favourites for years--that I'm in a position to pass them on to my children! =)
Since I'm international, I'm not joining the giveaway and counting this as a comment incentive entry. But I'd also like to say that it has been quite fun answering your comments, so far! And it's great that you reply to people. I'm always a bit disappointed when I visit a new blog that is so welcoming when it comes to comments and so stingy when acknowledging them, but that hasn't been my experience here. =)
I won't promise to always answer or even answer on the same day. Life sometimes gets in the way of my plans. For example, today, Jan. 4th, is my oldest son's Birthday. I will be in and out today and this evening we are taking him to dinner so I won't be here then either. But I do try my best to answer back and usually as soon as I see the person's comment!Delete
i did answer you too and i visited and commented on your blogDelete
I know, Miki, and I appreciated it very much! =)
i've a tendency to keep my book so i can reread them when i want , when i really can't keep one i will try to someone i know who will love it and take care of it. books are treasure for me so i don't like selling them and never throw them awayReplyDelete
oups i forgot to tell you i shared this on g+ ( and +1 too)Delete
don't worry if it's not international, this blog hop is never int or nearly ( the stop are so few) but we understand and you were so generous with us a few days ago we can understand don't worry
Thank you for being so understanding Miki. :D I try to make almost all of my giveaways International. If Kathy the host of the hop, would let me I'd offer a giftcard should the winner be International but she says that defeats the purpose and I understand her point.Delete
Ah-hem. I, uh, hoard books that I like so I can re-read them. (One day, I'm liable to die in a fire because I tried to save all my books.) If I don't like a book, I either sell it, gift it, or see what I can get for it at HPB.ReplyDelete
I'd have to choose American Vampire.
I too would probably sacrifice myself for my beloved books.Delete
You are not alone Toni!
I hoard my books! If chosen, I'd love to have American Vampire! I also shared by tweeting!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great hop!
Thanks Elizabeth. It's nice to talk with a fellow book hoarder. :DDelete
I love Lisa Kleypas and I don't have this book so I would definitely want this one.....as for what I do after I am done reading I keep every single one of them. If they are a great read I will share but I always get them back.ReplyDelete
That sounds like me. I almost always hang on to them. I'm usually stingy that way. lol!Delete
I would love Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor Sometimes I keep them but also pass them around and share with others or donate them to the library Ours have book sales from time to time.ReplyDelete

I am guilty of never going to the library! I like them, when I was in school and even when my kids were in Elementary school, I helped at the school libraries. I am impatient though and I don't like to wait to read a book and I get frustrated when I can't find what I'm looking for, not to mention the parking at the local library is horrible. I just buy them and miss all of the hassle. It would be better for my pocketbook if I went to the library though!Delete
Janet Chapman or Jennifer Armintrout's. Both books sound great. I am a fan of both authors.ReplyDelete
I keep books if I really like them. My hubby can attest to this and we have them like everywhere I can squeeze another bookshelf in. I gift a lot of books too.
I will tweet the giveaway but for some reason I found 2 of my tweets in my outbox. I don't know why they didn't send :)
Huh, that's peculiar!Delete
That's my problem. I really like books. I keep almost all of mine. Every once in awhile I part with a few. :D
the man must marry. :)ReplyDelete
I'd pick American Vampire.ReplyDelete
I can't reread books, no matter how long it's been since first reading, because I remember the story, and dialogue in such detail that I become bored.
I wish I could remember it so well just off hand but that recall only happens when I start reading the book again. So I just horde every book of mine and can't bear to part with them. I even get uncomfortable with loaning them out.
I'm so weird.
I tweeted: https://twitter.com/BrookeBanks10/status/287295320839315457
Different maybe but not weird! That is so sad that you can't re-read your favorites! :( I love to re visit mine.Delete
I am like that with movies though! My hubbie laughs at me because I can be in the kitchen and hear a few words and I can tell them what movie they are watching if I've seen it before. lol!
I would love American Vampire!! I've heard such good things about this one:)ReplyDelete
sstogner1 at gmail dot com
It's by JLA but it was my least favorite out of all her books that I've read so far.Delete
I'll be eager to see what you think of it if you win. :D

I would love to have American Vampire (either the book or the guy on the cover). ;)ReplyDelete

Here is my tweet: https://twitter.com/juleezek/status/287357144070774785
I also would love to read American Vampire! :)
I share my print books with my mom and my best friend. I also tend to hoard books, too.
Ha! Welcome to the group Julie. I think we should start a BHA support group! :DDelete
I'd choose the Lisa Kleypas book. Thanks for being part of the giveaway :DReplyDelete
Also tweeted: https://twitter.com/SecretNinja27/status/287372268462555136
As for books I've read, my favorites get a spot in my bookshelf, the rest get packed up into boxes or I'd be living in books :P
The Man Must Marry looks like a fun read!ReplyDelete
I mostly buy eBooks now, so not much happens with those after I finish them. But paperbacks will either get passed around the extended family, or some keepers get stored in my book boxes, waiting for library shelves to magically appear in my house! lol
You let me know if you find someone who can magically add book shelves. I would like them to build me a library. lol!Delete
I would like Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas. Thank you for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
I would love to read American VampireReplyDelete
Great Giveaway. I borrow most of my books from the library or buy them on kindle so book shelf space isn't really needed - good thing bc I don't have any left. If I had the money I would have a giant fancy reading room with lots of book shelves!ReplyDelete
I would love to have a room dedicated to books and reading! As it is I have books on shelves in just about every room except for my kitchen and bathroom.Delete
Probably American Vampire.ReplyDelete
I would love Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor. It looks great. :) Thanks for the chance.ReplyDelete
After I read a book, I usually lend it out to some friends of mine who are also readers.s We trade back and forth. I also post books to Paperbackswap.
It's wonderful to share the love of reading. Isn't it?Delete
Tough choice...but I think at this moment American Vampire would be the one.ReplyDelete
If I do not plan to keep the book forever, I will share with friends or donate to a local library.
I'd love Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor.ReplyDelete
I tweeted - https://twitter.com/momscholar_tx/status/287935875327860736 - thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
I usually keep books after I read them if I think my daughters will like them later in their lives. Otherwise I give them away to friends or the library. Sometimes I sell them on eBay or half.com, but I usually don't have time to try to sell them.ReplyDelete
My boys don't read the same types of books as I do so that method won't work for me. Unfortunately, I don't have any daughters. :(Delete
I would like to win The Man Must Marry.ReplyDelete
I keep books that I've read. Then one day I'll think of selling or donating them but it takes a while for that to happen.
bituin76 at hotmail dot com
Selling them is an option I never thought of. I don't think I'd be able to part with them any way. I'm too much of a re-reader!Delete
I would pick America Vampire. Vampires are my first supernatural love!ReplyDelete
They were first for me too. I still love them but now I'd choose werewolves over vamps on most days.Delete
American Vampire. Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
I would choose Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, though it was hard to choose :) American Vampire also looks good. Thanks for your giveaway!ReplyDelete

Also what I do with my books after I read them. I let my Best Friend read them.
How nice of you!Delete
I would love Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor. And when I am done with a book, I usually give it away, either on book swap sites or use it for a giveaway on my blog! Thanks for this giveaway!ReplyDelete
What a tough choice. I would be thrilled with either Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor or American Vampire.ReplyDelete
I tweeted: https://twitter.com/TexasBookLover/status/288471363570790400
Thanks so much!
I would love to have "American Vampire"!! When I'm done reading a book I keep them all! I have like over 300 books at least. I need more shelves in my house!ReplyDelete
Also I tweeted and here is the link:
Thank you for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!! Wishing you a Happy New Year!
I would choose American Vampire. I also added it to my GoodReads shelf off of this post....so whether I win it here or not it's there on my list to accomplish!!ReplyDelete
That's what I usually do. Otherwise, if I don't win I often forget about the book that I thought looked good.Delete
I'm not sure what to pick - maybe Insurgent.ReplyDelete
I usually pass on my books to others or donate them to the library.
I'm sorry to disappoint you but this giveway is only for the books pictured!
I would love to read American Vampire. When we bought our new house I made sure we had an extra room so I could put up lots of book shelves, so that is where they go.ReplyDelete
