So I entered a bookstagram contest for this book I had been dying to read ever since my book blogger friend first told me about it. Having her go on and on about the most amazing ARC she received (she STILL posts about it!) really built up my need for the novel. The day of the drawing I checked my messages and… I didn’t win. I had really wanted a signed copy of this mana-like book *sniffle*
But since I was on my computer and emailing with SWAP about visa application details for my next adventure anyways, I figured I may as well deal with the hundreds of messages I have in there. I deleted the ones I knew I’d never read and organized the rest… imagine to my surprise I saw an email that said “ARC”.
This surprised me because I didn’t recall getting an advance reader copies of anything while in London. I sure hadn’t packed it to come home with me! I clicked on the message and it seems that some months ago I entered another contest for a novel. To my surprise, I had actually won!
I remember being sooo excited and couldn’t wait to start reading it just as soon as I finished the book I was currently in the middle of… But I was also planning a trip and getting prepared for school to start up again and, well, life got in the way. I totally forgot about getting an ebook copy *facepalm*
Needless to say, I was more than happy to have this book in my mailbox and had the joy of receiving it (though not yet reading it) twice! I am going to leave you in suspense for now, but you’ll find out just what novel it is shortly as I’ll be posting a review on it as well as the other two books of the trilogy.
