Spring Cleaning Book Giveaway Blog Hop


I lighten by bookshelves several times a year. And lucky for you, I Am a Reader, Not a Writer hosts some fabulous blog hops for me to give away these great books! 

3 Books, 3 Winners


To enter, simply follow my blog and leave a happy comment on this post. I will choose three winners to receive one of the following books. All entries must be received by midnight on March 25th. I will announce the winners by March 28th.



Bitten: A Romantic Comedy by Robert Smith

*The book I'm giving away is a paper bound book, not a Kindle book. This was the only image I could find.  =)

“I remembered the disappointment I had felt about Tennessee and the fear I had experienced worrying about being stung by bugs. I looked at Grace. Who knew I would be bitten so hard?”

Serving as a missionary in Thelma's Way, Tennessee, is an unforgettable, colorful, and bewildering experience for Trust Williams. (The bugs are the least of his problems.) But as Trust settles in, he begins to love this ratty bunch of misfits. In particular, he's smitten by a mysterious redhead named Grace. His mission mishaps and later courtship will leave readers in stitches. In the end, Trust discovers that despite religion, location, or upbringing, love bites whom it pleases.


Shattered Silence: The Untold Story of a Serial Killer's Daughter by Melissa G. Moore with M. Bridget Cook

Throughout her life, Melissa Jesperson Moore had to hide her true identity. She had pretended that life was perfect after her parents divorced and she was suddenly uprooted from everything familiar and loving. She had to be silent, and to pretend not to be disturbed or upset by her father's actions. Those experiences prepared Melissa to hide the deepest, darkest secret of all. As she began making different choices, building a successful and loving life on her own, her heart began to fill with rays of hope, though she could never quite rid herself of the dark shadow of secrecy and shame. Then one day, her beautiful, innocent daughter looked into her eyes and said, "Mommy, everybody's got a daddy. Where's your daddy?" Shattered Silence is an astonishing, true narrative of personal and spiritual transformation. From her secret life as "the daughter of The Happy Face Serial Murderer" to a woman that bared her soul and inspired millions, Melissa leads the reader on the vulnerable, compelling, and sometimes very raw journey of what it took to shatter the silence, and claim her own life.


Fall by Jennifer Hurst

Women and construction shouldn't mix. At least, that is what the client, Mr. Blackwell, thinks when twenty-one year old Julia D. Halstead is promoted to project manager to convert a turn-of-the-century schoolhouse into a bed and breakfast. However, the schoolhouse contains a dark secret that has been hidden for nearly a hundred years. A secret that will unleash the Furies of Hell and cause the Angels in Heaven to weep as ethereal brothers, Matthew and Nathan, battle over Julia's very soul.






Good luck & enjoy the blog hop!

This afternoon I saw a beautiful picture of a young woman and her now grown up, college aged daughter taken on a beach together. They were radiant together. I knew this darling little mother when she was scared and unwed with her tiny little girl sleeping on my sofa while she talked quietly with my 20 year old daughter. It made my heart soar and tears of joy and pride come to my eyes to see these two; mom and daughter together~happy, surviving, thriving and joyfully loving each other. What a testament to taking the difficult path in life..making the hard choice that leads to a good place. This made me feel wonderful!
