February Book of Choice Giveaway Hop

February Book of Choice

My personal goal for 2017 is to READ MORE! I always PLAN on reading, but life ends up getting in the way, or I’m too tired by the time the boys go to bed to concentrate, so I end up Netflixing instead (Netflixing (verb): the act of binge watching shows on Netflix). Last year I only managed to finish a couple books. This year, I want to try to read at least 12 books

The winner of the January giveaway was Alison King who picked The Green Mile by Stephen King. Congratulations Alison!

In January I added more books to my every growing “TO READ” pile on my desk! I pre-ordered both Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling and Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth with a gift card I received for Christmas. Tales of Beedle the Bard was originally set to be released on January 12, but the date was put back to February 14, so now I have something to look forward to in the mail later this month!

Carve the Mark

Because I understand everyone has genres that they prefer, I am not going to limit the book choice to just one genre, so you can choose the book and genre of your choice! Just make sure that the book is available from The Book Depository, and that the total price is less than $15 in Canadian Funds. You can filter the currency in the upper right hand side of their page to choose CAD.
