Valentine's Blog Event: It Begins Today!!

UPDATE: ALL GIVEAWAYS WILL END MONDAY 11:59PM US EST, MARCH 5TH 2012 (TUESDAY 3:59PM AUSTRALIAN EST, MARCH 6TH). A FULL SCHEDULE OF EVENTS CAN BE FOUND BELOW, BUT IF YOU'D LIKE A BASIC RECAP OF GIVEAWAY POSTS STILL OPEN, EACH WITH DIFFERENT PRIZE PACKS:



The month of love is finally upon us! And with it brings the hottest guys, steamiest romances and some of the most complicated love triangles in YA . Lisa from Read Me Bookmark Me Love Me and I have been hard at work to bring you a Valentine’s Day celebration of epic proportions, so prepare yourselves for an entire month of swooning, squealing and some serious sexy times!

Not only are we offering you a peek at some super exclusive content from your favourite books and delving into the minds of the most talented authors, but because you’re taking the time to read and comment, we’re giving away LOTS OF PRIZES!

We’ll be hosting a Scavenger Hunt, Love Triangle Debates, Cover Puzzle, Boyfriend Battle and a Boyfriend Quiz, all of which offer prize packs to those who participate! And just by commenting throughout the month on our Valentine’s posts, you go into the draw to win some jaw-dropping prizes!

COMMENT CONTEST

For every genuine comment you make on the Valentine’s posts featured on BOTH mine and Lisa’s blogs throughout the month, you will gain TWO points toward this giveaway for EACH comment. (Please note that some giveaway posts will have their own comment entry system, so any comments you make on those will count toward their giveaways, not this one).
