Winning! (Charlie Sheen has nothing on me)

April 15, 2012 General 10

This has been an incredibly unusual two weeks for me.  You see, I’ve won stuff. Take a look:


Two weeks of winning craziness


And here are the people I really need to thank for these wonderful goodies:

2.  ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD by Kendare Blake

(won via blog giveaway by TOR)


3.  FATED by Alyson Noel

(won via Shelf-Awareness giveaway by ST MARTIN’S PRESS)


4.  DEAD ON THE DELTA by Stacey Jay

(won via blog giveaway by the lovely STELLAR FOUR)


5.  BLOOD ON THE BAYOU by Stacey Jay

(won via blog giveaway by the lovely STELLAR FOUR)


6.  SHAEDES OF GRAY by Amanda Bonilla

(won via Twitter Giveaway by SIGNET ECLIPSE BOOKS)


7.  THE CLOCKMAKER’S LADY by Heather Massey

(won via blog giveaway by the wonderful Marlene at READING REALITY)


8.  The Academy


I am incredibly grateful to the publishers and bloggers for organizing these fantastic giveaways!  A special thanks to the wonderful blog, The Stellar Four, for organizing the Stacey Jay giveaway.  This is a series I have been meaning to read for quite a while and I cannot wait to dig into these.  And another special thank you to Marlene at Reading Reality for the Heather Massey book.  I read about this one in RT Reviews and was very curious.


I feel very lucky indeed.  Because really people, I don’t win shit.  I really don’t.  So what does a person, like myself, who tends to lose at Bingo, raffles, giveaways, auctions, and the like, do when faced with a winning streak like this?


Hopes and Dreams


That’s right.  I bought a Powerball ticket.  And placed all of my dreams for myself and my family on this $2 paper of hope.


And I lost.


So, this is probably it.  What you see above is probably all of my winning mojo for at least a year.  A moment of silence, please.

(silence…1 minute…2 minutes)


Great, now let’s get to reading!

    I don’t know if it’s possible for you to be full of any more win. 😉 Sweet score! I can vouch for Anna Dressed in Blood. It was a really good read. I wouldn’t get down on your luck just yet. Perhaps this is just the beginning.

      It won’t continue! Trust me, I don’t have that kind of luck which is why I wrote the post. This is so outside of normal to me it makes me laugh!
