It’s a giveaway! Check this out to win a copy of Nevernight by Jay Kristoff!

For any of my readers who love to read, here is a new book review site that seems off to a great start and she’s also doing a give away at the moment.

Kelly Brantley

My social media presence is pretty small, but I wanted to start giving away the books that I read and review. The fact that I’m not a well known blogger means that you guys have a wayyyy better chance of winning than a normal giveaway would allow for.


  • Gotta be following my blog 🙂 You can choose to follow me here or on Tumblr. Whichever suits your fancy!
