Follower Appreciation + Valentine's Day Giveaway

Once upon a time, Beauty and the Bookshelf had a few followers. Then 50. Then 100. Then 150. Last I checked, it was 155 followers. To add to that, I have over 700 followers on Twitter.

Where did all you people come from? I'm going to assume half of you are aliens from another planet, and you only care what I have to say because you're spying on planet Earth. Nevertheless, to celebrate I'm hosting a giveaway in honor of Valentine's Day and my appreciation of my followers and all the bookish people ever. Why? Because you're awesome and I want to share my love of books with you. (Note: I'm not sure if this gif fits, but look at Joey's face! How could I not use it?)

What can you win? Besides the following ARCs, I'll through in some swag, and maybe even some duplicate finished copies I have of books! The books up for grabs are...

The third and final book in Anna Carey's Eve Trilogy--we all love finales, don't we?

The late Bridget Zinn's debut, which features a "too-cute pig." I love pigs!

And last but not least, a book with a prince and a few elite girls, because I love Maxon.

Do you want?

You can have! One person will metaphorically walk away with all these books! Just follow the rules below and fill out the Rafflecopter--that's it! And because I wouldn't be here without you,




-No cheating! One entry per person.
-US ONLY. (However, if you're not US and you're willing to pay shipping and handling, then go for it.)
-There will be only one winner.
-I, nor any of the authors/publishers/etc. of these books, are responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged packages.
-Winner will have 48 hours to respond or else a new winner will be chosen.

  1. Okay so I don't think my last comment posted... Anyway I am TEAM MAXON all the way!! This also means that I am most looking forward to The Elite out of your pile. In fact I had to stop and sigh when I seen it :) Thank you for the giveaway and CONGRATS on the 150!!

  2. Congrats on over 150 (now) followers! That's a big deal!

  4. I am most excited for the Elite!! And I'm most definitely Team Maxon!! I mean, come on. Is there really a choice? LOL
    Thanks so much for the giveaway!!

  5. I'm excited about The Elite. I love the cover. :D

  6. I am most excited about The Elite, and I am Team Maxxon for sure! I kept getting mad at America because she just wouldn't get over Aspen and give Maxxon a chance.

    If I could spend Valentine's with any bookish boys I would pick Adrian Ivashkov =D I feel like he would wine, dine, and make me laugh!

  7. Team Maxon of course!...Aspen is a jerk!

  8. I want The Elite because I'm about to start The Selection, and I'm sure I'll want to read this one right after!!!!

  9. I want Poison the most!

    I'd probably go with ... uhm ... I don't really have any book boyfriends.

  10. I loved The Selection and I can't wait to read The Elite. I'm Team Maxon all the way!!

  11. The Selection was so good! I'm all the way Team Maxon! Aspen had his chance and he screwed it up, so there. I'm looking forward The Elite and Rise! I thought Once was better than Eve, so I'm hoping it's an upward trend and Rise will be amazing! :)

  12. I want The Elite so bad! I have read The Selection, and I am so sososoosososososoososooooooo on Team Maxon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhh if I could have any fiction Valentine's date, it would maybe be Peeta from The Hunger Games?!? Haha.

    1. OH MY GOSH, I totally follow your blog! Excuse me while *I* freak out! (:

  15. I want The Elite the most. I haven't read The Selection yet but it's in my TBR pile.

  16. Looking forward to reading RISE by Anna Carey.As for my fictional Valentine? I think Sam Roth.

  17. Is *anyone* Tean Aspen? Maxon is such an obvious choice.
    I'm actually most excited for Poison, because it's new and I have no idea what to expect from it.

  18. I am so anxious to read the Elite and see what happens next after The Selection! I don't even know which team I'm on...just really loved that book. Thanks!

  19. I am most anxious to read Rise. :)

    Congrats on all the followers!

  20. I'm 100% Team Maxon. I love him so much.

  21. I've read The Selection. I loved it from page one and couldn't stop reading until I finished. Then a deep sigh came from me when it was done I wanted more. I'm looking forward the next book coming out. I'm a Team Maxon. Poor guy. He trys so hard. I want to understand the outside world and has compassion for his people. America and him are good for each other. He is such a gentleman. He could be my Valentine any day. :)
