The BookBandit Blog!

It’s true. A few weeks ago, on April 3rd, the BookBandit Blog celebrated its fourth birthday. I started this blog as a simple way to keep track of what I was reading and enjoying while in Grad School, but it has blossomed into something more – something that allows me to be a part of a great blogging community, and something that I’m super proud of.

A lot of the successes I’ve experienced with The BookBandit Blog have been because of you dear readers! I started blogging for myself, and as much as I still blog for myself, I also blog for my readers – the people who seek out my blog and read my review, the people who comment on my posts, and the people who support The BookBandit Blog.

Since life has been super busy, I haven’t had the chance to celebrate The BookBandit Blog turning four. So I’m taking that time to celebrate now! And what better way to celebrate than to host a giveaway!

Through this giveaway, three lucky readers will have the chance to win one of the three bookish prizes.

Prize # 1 includes:


An ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of Time Between Us signed by author Tamara Ireland Stone.

Prize #2 includes:


A hardcover copy of Bitterblue signed by author Kristin Cashore.

Prize #3 includes:


An ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of The Boy on the Bridge signed by author Natalie Standiford.

Not only will winners receive a signed book, but they will also receive some bookish swag like bookmarks, keychains, stickers, etc.. Cause really, what’s a book without bookish swag right?!

Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only age 13 years and older.
