Two Year Blogoversary and Giveaway #1!

Happy blogoversary to me!  On May 8th, The Hollow Cupboards turned two years old, but the idea of it had been forming in my brain long before that!  I can hardly believe that some of you have stuck with me this long and continue to enjoy the content!  To celebrate, I've planned a month-long event where I'll be posting a new giveaway every week!  I'm planning for this celebration to last until my 21st birthday on June 16th, so it's a double celebration!


I don't want to take up too much time, but I did want to thank my readers, authors, blogging friends and publishers for constantly investing in my opinion.  I never knew how important blogging would be to me and I surely didn't think that it would become a regular thing when I started, but now I can't see myself without it!

Here's a list of what you can expect to see throughout the celebration:

May 14th- Kickoff & Giveaway #1
May 21st- Why I Love eBooks & Giveaway #2
May 28th- Being Thankful & Giveaway #3
June 4th- Guessing Game Giveaway #4
June 11th- Pick & Choose Giveaway #5
June 16th- 21st Birthday, Wrap-Up and Giveaway #6

Each giveaway will last two weeks.  I'm also going to try and rotate so every other giveaway will be INT so my friends who don't live in the US or Canada won't miss out on the fun!

So I suppose you're wondering what I have in store for the first giveaway?


Well, you guys know how I love contemporary, so I've piled up 6 ARCs to give to one winner!  This giveaway will be open to US/CAN, but don't fret...that means that the next giveaway will be INT!  

To win...
-My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody
-Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg
-The Summer I Learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt
-Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland
-The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston

  1. Happy 2 years Bloggy Anniversary! I'd have to say anything by Jill Shalvis, especially her Lucky Harbor series, is my favorite in contemporary. Simone Elkeles is really good too.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway.
