Thursday Thirteen: Edition # 32

Books Won From the Contests

I love to win a prizes from contest all the times. I go from authors website or blog to enter their contests. Or it could be from my Yahoo Group/loops. I don't always get lucky to win (not a while lot). Or even get the prizes that I want. But the prizes that I did win, I really got excited and anxious to get them. Most are "new to me authors" which I'm always looking out for *hint hint*. And some are authors/books that I'm familiar with but either I had read their other works previously or never read them before. Below are the list of books that I currently won. Or have won long time ago, but just been sitting in my TBR piles. These are given to me all in different times,years and dates. Not all at once *grin*. If you click on the titles, you'll be able to see the cover arts and information about each books. Enjoy! And Happy TTs and I hope you have a great Thursday! :)

Melody said...

Julia, you're one lucky girl! I wish I've this kind of luck, LOL.

Great list of books. I only have Cherry Adair's book amongst the list.

Happy reading! ;)

Jubilee on Earth said...

Oooh, I haven't read any of those books, but I love getting books and reading new things. I can't believe I haven't found your blog before this (I'm eyeing your post below about female lead characters...) I'll have to bookmark and come back!


She Became a Butterfly said...

marcia said...

Oh fun happy reading

Calliope said...

Nope. I haven't read any of those. Are there any that you would particularly recommend? I've won the 7th Harry Potter book in a contest before.

Happy TT!


Julia said...

Picture of life - It may seem lot of books, but it not ;)

Hootin' Anni - Man in the IRON mask, was that the one also made into movie? I saw it :)

Melody - It probably be the wrong time to see if we can read Cherry Adair's books together. I wait until your monthly challenge is over hehehe.

Jubilee on earth (Maria)- Do please read the In Death or Outlander. They are interesting books. Not just because of the heroine but the heroe too *grin*

She Became a Butterfly - I wish you good luck in reaching the 50 books! You can do it! :)

Marcia - Thanks for stopping by, hope you come back again :)

Calliope - I love the Harry Potter's books. Although I only managed to read book #4. One these days, I get back to the series. Well from the books I listed, they are books I have not read but heard about...except Sandy Blair books. If you into historical romance scottish men *grin*. But I do highly recommend you to read In Death series by JDRobb, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (yes it thick books but it worth it) and Suz Brockmann's Troubleshooter series (Navy SEALs books). These are the one that are favorite and is at the top of my head at the moments :)

Thanks everyone for stopping by. I hope you come back again. Have a good Thursday - and weekend ahead!
