Favorite 2019 release I've already read
Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills clearly I have a lot of favorites, haha. But now for the giveaway! One winner is going to get a prize pack with one book of their choice from the list above (as long as it's 18 USD or less), two 2 oz. Novelly Yours candles (the scents are Currently Reading and Levi's Pumpkin Mocha Breve), assorted book swag, and an ARC of their choosing (from a list I'll provide to the winner).

Usual rules:
1. No cheating. I check entries.
2. Must reside in the U.S. (Sorry, shipping is expensive!)
3. Must reply to my congratulations email within 48 hours; otherwise, I will choose another winner.


  1. I'm sad to say that I haven't read a lot of these . . . though part of that is just that I don't read contemporary. I did really enjoy Eliza and Her Monsters, though. And I'm so glad to see An Enchantment of Ravens on here for favorite fae story- YESSS. That would be my pick too.

    1. Lol I didn't realize til now just how much contemporary is on this list. Oops! xD

      Listen, ENCHANTMENT has a much better portrayal of Fae than most of the popular series.

  2. I love the beautiful covers! :)


  3. Finally got a chance to check your blog after a while and I'm having fun building up my TBR list as per your recommendations!
