a Rafflecopter giveaway
*I've recently found that people have been entering categories without completing the action first. I have no way to verify if one has visited my Facebook, for example. But if I see entries that claim to have done something I can verify (leave a blog comment, tweet, etc) that have not been completed, I will delete that entry for fairness's sake.

As a reviewer, I tend to accumulate books. As a way to clear off my shelves I thought I'd give you a chance to win some of the books I have reviewed. This giveaway will have one winner who will choose which book they'd like to receive!

The Choices:

Sunrise Meets the Star by Victoria Basted (autographed copy):

Verone’s life as a peasant was a lonely one until the strangers showed up at his door. They demanded he must come with them, to unravel a tangled Will and Testament that inexplicably bound him to the side of the stubborn, dark-headed young man, Antaries. Submitting to their demands gave him a quest, although he wasn’t certain what the end result would be. As well as Antaries, the two hired guards, and the lawyer sent to oversee the complicated Will and Testament, he had to travel with another man that despised all peasants and was ready to sneer at him at every turn. On the road they were threatened by thieves, attacked and arrested, struck by poisoners and a pretty young pickpocket. But inside Verone was changing, for with the surprises of travel his heart contracted with an emotion he hadn’t allowed himself to feel for a long time. Hope. Was he destined to be a lonely peasant with nothing to look forward to but scraping his next meal into his stomach with calloused hands? Or would Antaries prove to be the friend he never expected to come his way? Would he even extend himself to save Verone’s life?

If You Feel Too Much by Jamie Tworkowski (ARC):

In 2006 Jamie Tworkowski wrote a story called “To Write Love on Her Arms,” about helping a friend through her struggle with drug addiction, depression, and self-injury. The piece was so hauntingly beautiful that it quickly went viral, giving birth to a non-profit organization of the same name. Now, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is an internationally recognized leader in suicide prevention and a source of hope, encouragement, and support for people worldwide.

If You Feel Too Much is a celebration of hope, wonder, and what it means to be human. From personal stories of struggling on days most people celebrate to words of strength and encouragement in moments of loss, the essays in this book invite readers to believe that it’s okay to admit to pain and okay to ask for help. If You Feel Too Much is an important book from one of this generation’s most important voices.
