I swore to myself up and down that I wasn't going to do a giveaway when I reached 100 followers. Buck the trend! I thought. Hold a giveaway when you reach 137 followers! Hold it when you actually have something worth giving away!

But now I've reached this point, and I realized two things: First, I am pretty pleased with myself for making it to 100. This day seemed eons away when I first started writing here back in November. Second, so what if I don't have a coveted ARC or a signed copy of something? I can give away whatever I want. And then I looked like this:

I can give away whatever I want? This allows me to do two awesome things at once: 1) Support a book that I love, and 2) Impose my literary tastes on an avid reader. Win, and a win.

So folks, here it is:

The First Annual 

I'm offering a choice of one of two books that I loved recently:

by Andrew Smith


by Patrick Ness
