Box of Books Giveaway #8 & Goodbye For Now

Hi there, lovely readers. I'm here with another Box of Books Giveaway. A really BIG giveaway, 22 books total!  I'm cleaning out my bookshelves and I wanted to pass along some great reads! Some of the books are signed by the author (to me, Rachel, sorry!).  

Also, I'm writing up this post with mixed feelings because it is to announce my hiatus from the blog. The time is indefinite at this point.  I'm super busy with real life, in a good way, but still. I just can't be on the computer as much as before, so therefore I'm taking a break.  Jasprit will still be holding down the fort, I couldn't have a better partner!  I just want to say thank you to each and every visitor, but especially to all the regulars who stop by and read all the posts, and the blogging friends I've come to respect and go to when I want a reliable opinion.  Sharing the love of books with others brings me so much joy!  I hope to get back here someday, but I'm not sure when.

Here are the books I'm giving away:

Afterlife by Claudia Gray- Hardcover (signed by author to me)
Everynight by Claudia Gray- Hardcover (signed by the author to me)
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga- Hardcover (signed by the author)

  1. Hi Rachel-

    I'm sorry you won't be around for awhile, but I completely understand. Sometimes everyday life just gets too hectic! Best of luck with everything, and i hope you come back to blogging some day!


  2. I could never part with any of my Cassandra Clare books or any book I have signed by the author and thanks for the great giveaway!! :D

  3. I would not want to part from my Christine Feehan, Dark series collection :)

  4. I don't think I could pick just one. My Harry Potters are the first that come to mind.

  5. My set of Harry Potter books!

  6. Rachel! While I can totally understand your need for a break, I will miss seeing you around! I'm glad Jasprit will still keep the blog going though. And my God! That giveaway looks so nice and it's so generous of you girls. <3

  7. Rachel, you will be missed! I completely understand needing to take time off, though, but I'm going to miss your posts and I hope you'll be active on GoodReads so I can check out which romance novels you've been reading! ;) Take care, dearest! <3

  8. I am sorry to see you gone for a while, but I hope the time off is exactly what you need :)
    I would have a hard time parting with my first copy of Twilight because it has been so well loved.
    And thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway *crossing my fingers*

  9. Aw, huuugs :( I hope you will have an amazing break, though :D Must be nice to not have to worry about blogging ;p Thank you for letting us know Rachel. <3 And ack, this giveaway is epic :D You are too kind. (Not entering, but yeah, you are awesome :D)

  10. Take some time and hope it helps and to see you back, but if not, totally understand. Take care Rachel!

  11. YOU ARE COMING BACK, RIGHT? RIGHT?!!! *goes fetal*

  12. Probably my copy of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! I was reading the 3rd book at home alone, when my mother came home from grocery shopping. As I was helping her get stuff from the car I lamented that I should have borrowed the 4th HP book from the library as I just read and loved the 3rd. She then hand me a clearly stepped on ripped book and said she found this in the grocery parking lot. She saw it was HP and brought it home for me!

  13. Wow.... I will have to say The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer series, The Summer I Turned Pretty series, and To All The Boys I Loved Before.

  14. Thank you for this amazing giveaway and I hope the break will be good for you!
    The book I'll probably never part with is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I could just relate to it so much when I was a teenager, and it brings back so many feelings whenever I reread it.

  15. RACHEL NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! *sobs* I'm so sad you're leaving! I completely understand though, life and work have gotten much busier for me over the past few months and the blog has had to take more of a backseat. I hope you come back some day, but if not, it's been such a blast getting to know you:) You will be missed!

  16. Rachel, how am I going to get my romance recs now?! I'm so sad to see you take a hiatus, but it sounds like you have a lot on your plate and blogging shouldn't be a chore. I will miss you dearly though. I hope we can still continue to chat through Goodreads.

  17. Rachel, I already told you that I’ll miss you. You are my book twin, so I hope we still manage to recommend good books each other.

  18. I could not part with the Shatter Me series

  19. Until we meet again! I hope your life gets less busy soon, because we will miss your presence :)

  20. Will miss your presence, Rachel! Be sure to say hi on Twitter if you can. :) Good luck with everything you have going on! I know how busy life can get. <3 <3

  21. Enjoy your hiatus. I'm a book hoarder so I'm not sure I could part with anything I didn't like. Thanks for the giveaway!
