Reader's Choice -- Historical Romance

GIVEAWAY


It's time to help me plan my New Year reading (and future giveaways) by recommending new releases (publication dates January, February or Mach 2018) and you have a chance to win one of the books you recommend! Remember to read all the details before entering!


IT'S HISTORICAL ROMANCE GIVEAWAY DAY

To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including the title(s) of the book(s) in the Historical Romance genre you would like to win.


Historical Romance

A full-length story where the romance plays a major role and is set in the time period before the late 1970s. May cross genres such as suspense, dual timelines, Amish, YA.


How does it work?

Easy-peasy! Make recommendations in the comment section each day and if you win, you win the book you suggested.

BUT YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES!

Publication dates must be 
January, February or March 2018
Each day is genre specific so
only submit books from that genre
Christian Fiction books only please!
You can offer up to 3 suggestions a day
BUT
they need to be made in
three separate comments
(makes it easier for me to tally)
No email entries this week
(too hard to keep track of due to 
# of responses)
NEW - entrants must submit their own selections 
(not piggyback on someone else's logon) - NEW
Open to International Readers 
I'm all about spreading the good news about Christian Fiction 
all over the globe!!!!

It's helpful if you include your email (using AT and DOT instead of @ and . to protect yourself from spammers) but you only need to add it to one of your comments (per day). If you choose not to include your email then it's up to you to contact me if you are a winner.


Draw will be held and winner announced on 
Saturday December 23 2017

  1. I think this is just about the best category everyone loves...Reader's Choice! :-) So many great historical coming up it's always a toss up as to which ones I'd choose, I'll do my best to curtail it to three, lol!

    1. The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz (January)

    ReplyDelete
  2. It was a toss up as to which I would do as one and which one I would do as two!

    2. Out of the Ashes by Tracie Peterson/Kimberly Woodhouse (Heart of Alaska book 2)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Final choice although there are many, many, many more! (I'm adding to my own must-read list as I go along)

    1. I love this week too. I've been randomly liking new books I see on GoodReads but they are all mushed together with all the other 'old' books I want to read so that's not much help.

      Last night I reduced my 40ish page 2017 wishlist into a modest 3 pages!!! So now I feel I can indulge in planning out my New Year reads. :-)

      Sad that Tamara Leigh's book (whole series actually) is only in ebook format but deliriously happy over that new Lisa T. Bergren book. Haven't read anything by her in a while. Woot. Now she's on my list! Good luck, Tracey.

      Delete
    2. 40ish pages to 3 pages? Wow, I have maybe 25 books I'm behind on, but not 3 pages!of course you read 3 times as many books as me so I guess that makes sense.

      Delete
    3. Actually Tamara Leigh's Age of Faith Series is also in paperback (I asked my library to order them and they did. I also have the first two in paperback myself.) I just asked Ms. Leigh and she says that the paperback version of "The Awakening" should be releasing January 19th, same date as the ebook.

      Delete
    4. Thanks for letting me now this series comes in 'real' book format too, Elly! :-)

Even though it just says ebook right now on Amazon? Does that mean the rest of the series is available in pb???? Ooooohhhhhhh, must check into that. Good luck, Elly.

      Delete
  92. Yes, I contacted Ms. Leigh through Facebook two days ago and asked about the paperback of The Awakening. And yes! You should definitely check out the rest of the series! I asked my library to order them and they ordered the entire series in paperback (that is how I first read them.) Only a month ago, I ordered paperback copies of the first and second books in the series for myself. Definitely worth the read!
