Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop 2017 (Open internationally!)

The Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bookhounds, 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 Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop is scheduled from December 21st at 12:00 AM until December 31st at 11:59 PM (your time).


The Prizes


One lucky follower will win a $15 gift card to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or The Book Depository—winner's choice!!


I'm hosting ANOTHER giveaway for this amazing set of eBooks, open to anywhere in the world:

That's TWO winners total! Woohoo!!!!

The Rules


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

For additional entries, you can (+2) follow the blog on Twitter (@modishbooks), (+1) follow me on Twitter (@touurnesol), (+2) follow via email subscription (MUST VERIFY for this entry to count), (+1) vote my review of Love Her Wild as "helpful" on Amazon, and (+1) follow me on Instagram (@touurnesol).

As a reminder, these last seven entries are optional, but they give you more chances to win! If you complete them all, you can get 8 entries total (e.g. 8x a higher chance of being picked over any of the mandatory entrants).

You MUST include your Bloglovin' username in the extra info box in the Rafflecopter form, as well as your email address, Amazon vote number, Instagram/Twitter handles, 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!
