My blog baby is 2 years old! Amazing prizes to celebrate!

Wow. I can't believe my lil' blog is two years old already! Honestly, I am a bit late, I hit my blogoversary on May 28th. But, of course I didn't realize that until yesterday. I can't thank you enough for all your love and support over the years. I am so grateful to all of my readers who still visit La Femme Readers to this day. Without all the lovely comments and participation, my blog wouldn't be the same.

It's weird to think my book review blog as therapy, but it truly is. If I am having a bad day, I switch on my computer knowing that there is a community out there to hug me. Does that sound cheesy? Probably. But, I don't care -- it's the truth.

I thank each and every one of you for continually sending me your positive thoughts daily. I hope to provide the best content possible for many more blogoversaries to come. I also look forward to building more relationships along the way. Please know I am always open to your e-mails and comments. If you ever need help or have a simple question to ask, feel free to know I'm available.

To the authors, publicists and publishers -- you are all amazing. The dedication, creativity and utmost kindness were found within every person I've worked with for the past two years. I thank you for taking the time out to believe in me and my blog.

In order to express my gratitude to all my readers, check out the prizes below!

:: PRIZES ::

In order to celebrate my two year blogoversary, I've decided to give away two finished copies of Ashes and Shatter Me from The Book Depository. If you're not familiar with these two YA titles, check out these summaries...

Ashes (Ashes, #1) by Ilsa J. Bick
(Release Date: 8/23/11)

Summary: It could happen tomorrow... A cataclysmic event. An army of "The Changed." Can one teen really survive on her own? An electromagnetic pulse sweeps through the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. For those spared, it's a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human... Desperate to find out what happened and to avoid the Changed, Alex meets up with Tom---a young army veteran---and Ellie, a young girl whose grandfather was killed by the electromagnetic pulse. This improvised family will have to use every ounce of courage they have just to survive.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
(Release Date: 11/15/11)
-Cover not revealed yet

Summary: Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old-girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now. Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

:: CONTEST DETAILS::
  • There will be 2 Winners who will be picked by random.org. First place gets first grab, while second place receives the book remaining.
  • This is open to EVERYONE, just as long as the Book Depository ships to you.
  • The contest will run through June 27, 2011 at midnight EST time.
contest is closed.

Enjoy :)
