It’s been far too long since I’ve done a giveaway and they are my very favorite posts! And on a blog like mine, your odds of winning are pretty damn good because I’m not an influencer.
Hold up. Yes, I’m an influencer. I’ve influenced my children to do silly things for the sake of IG posts, I’ve influenced my friends to drink far more than they should and, also, do silly things like sing karaoke and take stupid selfies. So I take that back. I’m one hell of an influencer. But when it comes to people looking to me for great ideas in the world of style and cool, well they’re disappointed. BUT I do like giving things away especially when they’re books.
NAME DROP: My friend Leni Zumas happens to be an incredible writer. Start with her short stories then move on to her novels, her latest being Red Clocks. It’s getting a lot of attention right now especially because it’s set in a too-close-to-home dystopian future where abortion is banned and there are strict rules on IVF and adoption and it’s just a
little lot scary given our current situation with our current administration. Gag.
Leni suggested I read Women Talking so, of course, I did. Loved it. Quick summary: it’s about a group of women in a Mennonite community who devise a plan (whether it’s an escape or another option) to stop sexual assaults occurring within their community.
And yet another book you must read is Mother Winter by Sophia Shalmiyev. Her writing is lovely to read, almost poetic, and the story is fascinating and heartbreaking and very well told.
I’m giving away a copy of EACH OF THESE BOOKS to one person! Yes, three books, one winner. All you have to do is comment on this post. Comment whatever you want. Tell me I’m the best, tell me the memes I share on IG are shit, tell me I’m the best influencer in your life, it doesn’t matter what you say, just say something.
