Books to Movies Giveaway Hop!

The Books to Movies Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds and I Am a Reader, Not a Writer, 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 Last Hurrah Giveaway Hop is scheduled from August 27th at 12.01 AM until September 3rd at 11:59 PM (EST).


The Prizes


This will be a choice giveaway. One lucky follower gets their selection of a book that has a movie out! Some of my personal favorites include Fight Club, The Princess Bride, and the Harry Potter series because both the movies and books were equally fabulous.


What about you? What's your favorite book-turned-movie?

The Rules


Since this is a follower hop, I will have to make following by blog via Bloglovin' a mandatory entry.

You MUST your Bloglovin' username in the extra info box in the Rafflecopter form, as well as your Twitter handle and/or direct Tweet URLs, should you choose to take advantage of those extra entries. Entries without proper verification info 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!
