"Yes, it's me! No, I'm not dead!" + a Giveaway contest!

She lives! Yes, yes indeed, I am alive. My poor neglected blog has missed me terribly, I'm sure. I'm just waiting for Blogger to error out or reject this post when I try to publish it, that'll be my punishment for being MIA for so long.

I started school in August so I've been super busy (which is no excuse, of course.) I am really enjoying my first semester in college even though I feel like an old bag in some of my classes as I am surrounded by a bunch of dual enrollment kids (still in high school) and I have my 30th birthday screaming on my doorstep. Baby classmates notwithstanding, I love school. Yes, I am a gigantic nerd.

Moving on, I decided that in honor of my ignominious return, I would do a giveaway! My first giveaway ever on a Bitch, a Blog & a Bookshelf, très exciting!

The main book in the giveway is (drumroll, please):

Scandalous Desires by Elizabeth Hoyt! Book #3 in the brilliant Maiden Lane series is the best one yet. See my Goodreads "review" aka gushing. I'm also throwing in a few other books that I will list as soon as I figure out what they are, hehe. This giveaway is open internationally. To enter, just leave me a comment below and tell me what you're currently reading or a November release you're looking forward to.

P.S. I'll throw your name in an extra time if you can tell me the title of the movie the quote in this post comes from *grins*

More books for the giveaway! Only two commenters?? C'mon people!

Congrats on going back to school & welcome back! I am currently reading A Game of Thrones & Jaded by Anya Bast. I'm loving GoT not so much with Jaded.
I think the quote comes from Bride of Frankenstein based on the photo.
Am I right?!?

@Mo thanks, doll! I tried an Anya Bast recently & am sorry to say I had to put it down because I just couldn't get into it. sadly, the quote is not from Bride of Frankenstein; I just chose the pic because it seemed to go with the quote ;)

jaymzangel said...

@Kate I loved the Anita Blake books up to a certain point then I had to go off of them, unfortunately. you are 100% on the quote! I thought no one would figure it out because it was such an obscure little movie =P you get two entries =D

Great giveaway & fantastic odds! :-) I'm reading New York to Dallas (In Death) by JD Robb. The book I was looking forward to in Nov came out last week; Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich.

The name's Kara! said...

Awesome giveaway! I'm rereading Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books.

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the last one in the series ^^


jaymzangel said...

@minx hi sweets! doing very well, and yourself? I have Nicole Peeler's Jane series on my to-buy list, how are you liking them? the Lords are always divine <3

@Penny yes ma'am, fantastic odds =) ah Roarke, he is so so delicious. he is Bearsy's particular favorite. I've never read the Janet Evanovich series, is that the one they've made into a movie?

jaymzangel said...

@Kara oh I love the Sookie books, the last couple she's scared me a bit though. not exactly sure what direction she's going to go with the last one but I am hopeful that it will be great =)

Pragya said...

I am currently reading Crime and Punishment by Dostovyesky. Also, I am struggling with The Book Thief by Zusak. Amazing giveaway. Don't tell me about textbooks, I have three major exams coming up and I'm hooked to all books that are non-texts. :D

Penny said...

Yep....the movie is from those books but I completely disagree with the casting so if you are interested in checking them out, READ THE BOOK!! The casting is a TRAVESTY in my opinion. Ugh!!

sinn said...

Sweetie, you're preaching to the choir! It took me 10 years to finish my Bachelors, and the average age of my classmates kept getting younger and younger. I ended up taking classes with people that started when I did and they were receiving their MASTERS!! Ack!

LoL, good for you! I am so happy you're enjoying school! **hugs*

sinn @ sinnful books

jaymzangel said...

@Pragya I hear ya, I've got 5 finals coming up the week after next & I'm totally freaked out!

@Penny I will put them on my to-read list!

@sinn it really is ridiculous, I feel SO much older than some of them. they were all talking about Justin Bieber the other day & I wanted to bang my head on the desk =P as long as you finish, it doesn't matter how long it takes you. it's still a huge sense of accomplishment =D thanks, sweets!

p.s. I will be picking a winner this Sunday!
