Some Goodreads Giveaways and Weekly Update for April 29th-ish

Posted April 30, 2017 by meezcarrie in Christian, giveaway, weekly update / 16 Comments

Happy Saturday Sunday, y’all!! I am running errands today yesterday – and swinging by our local bookstore for a LAURA FRANTZ and VIRGINIA SMITH book signing 😀 #allthelove #fangirlunashamed

UPDATE: I’m so sorry I didn’t get this post up on Saturday! Life got away from me, with one disaster after another that needed tending and then – of course – getting to hang out with Laura and Ginny and my mom too 🙂

But I’m also getting ready to head to Atlanta for RT Book Reviews’ annual convention. This is my first year to attend, and I’m so blessed to be able to attend as a reviewer for them. Lots of great fun to be had (whilst dodging shirtless male cover models who are sauntering around, or so i’m told)! I’m most looking forward to the various Inspy panels and hanging out with some of my fave authors!!! (Time for the #fangirlunashamed hashtag again!)

Tamera Alexander will be there and she wrote a great post about all that’s going on. Look for it in the “Around the Web” section of this post! I’ll try to do an update post when I get home to give you the inside scoop on who was there and what we talked about! A covert photo of one of those cover models… optional.

Anyway, here are the Goodreads giveaways ending this week that I thought might be of interest to y’all. Best of luck to each of you! ? As always, clicking on the covers will take you to the giveaways and neither myself nor my blog are in any way affiliated with Goodreads or these giveaways. All giveaways are US only unless otherwise indicated.
