Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop!

The Leap Into Books Giveaway Hop, hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Jinky is Reading, works like this: each participating blog hosts a giveaway and then we link up together allowing our followers to hop easily from one giveaway to another.  For followers, it means lots of chances to win free books. For blogs hosting giveaways, it means lots of new visitors and followers. It's a win-win! The Young Adult Paranormal Giveaway Hop is scheduled from February 28th at 12.01 AM until March 7th at 11:59 PM (EST).


The Prizes


One lucky email subscriber gets their choice of book from The Book Depository! Choice giveaway—does it get better than that?

I love giving away eBooks too, so a runner-up will win the ultimate eBook bundle featuring:

The Rules


Since this is a follower hop, I will have to make following by blog via email subscription a mandatory entry. You can do this by clicking entering your email into the box on the right sidebar or by clicking here. For additional entries, you can (+1) follow via GFC (again, to your right), (+2) add my button to your blog, (+1) follow the blog on Twitter (@modishbooks), or (+1) enter any of my other giveaways. Pssst, you can enter different giveaways everyday for even MORE entries. That's up to 6 entries total (plus the additional giveaway entries)!

You MUST enter the email address follow with in the extra info box in the Rafflecopter form, as well as your GFC name, Twitter handle, blog address, and/or other giveaway you entered, IF you choose to take advantage of those extra entries. Entries without proper information will be considered void. I will be checking!

The Small Print


I'm not saying this because I'm a completely anal and want to make your life a living hell, but because I've noticed something going on with a lot of follower hops. The point of them is not to temporarily follow that blog and unfollow as soon as the giveaway is over. The point of the follower hops is for the blogs generously offering giveaway prizes to gain more readers and followers—in return, participants receive the opportunity to win great prizes such as books, gift cards, and swag. I'm not just speaking on behalf of myself, because seriously, I'm so grateful for the followship I have (love every each and one of you!), but I know for a fact this happens with lots of other blogs as well. Being part of the blogging community, I just want my two cents be heard. If you are so inclined as to read more about how I feel on this subject matter, please refer to this blog post.

The End


Sorry my rant was a little bitchy. I'm not trying to be mean. YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU so don't even go there, darling. And if you're one of those people who are loyal to blogs and never, ever unfollow, you. are. a. treasure. Be sure to enter all of the other giveaways going on for this hop; there are so many great prizes being given away!

xo and always!
