Book it!

UPDATED: Jan is the winner of Idol Eyes, and Audra Marie won Summer Snow! Congratulations, and thanks to all who entered!

For the winter bloggy giveaway carnival, I'm not giving away free pizzas (remember the Book-it program?!), but I am giving away free books, courtesy of Tyndale House Publishers.

Here's what you can win:
  • Idol Eyes by Mandisa--If you're a fan of American Idol, you'll enjoy going behind the scenes of the popular show with this former contestant.

  • Summer Snow by Nicole Baart--I reviewed Nicole's first book in the fall, interviewed her, and then met her in person. I'm excited to read this sequel to continue reading about Julia's story!

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by Friday 2/1 at 11 am CST. If you'd only like to be entered for one of the titles, please indicate that. Otherwise, your name will be put in the drawing for both--I'll select two winners, one for each book. Contest open to US and Canada addresses--and please make sure I can contact you via e-mail.

How neat! Please enter me in the drawing for Summer Snow... :-)

I do watch American Idol some but I think someone else might enjoy the book more than me!

Thanks for the opportunity!

Have a great week!

I'd love the American Idol book!

I just finished "Summer Snow" (the ARC) last night. It was fantastic. I thought it was even better than the first book in the series, "After the Leaves Fall." Nicole has a powerful way to bring life and hope to some hard issues - grace, forgiveness, poor decisions, and much more. Now, I'm just wishing there was a third book in the series. We'll have to each make up our own ending, I guess.

Love-
Kendra
