May Giveaway: Cheer Me Up?

I’m feel­ing not good. Like.. not good at all. Cheer me up? I have to admit, I have noticed that my mood and the stats of this blog do actu­ally affect eachother. Good mood, I leave more com­ments, I have higher stats. High­ter stats, I’m in a good mood, I hop around a lit­tle more. This starts to be bor­der­line pathetic.
Right now I don’t have the time to do that, though, so I’ll have to bribe peo­ple. LOL Hey, come on, at least I’m hon­est about it, right?

As always, the Monthly Give­aways are about show­ing my read­ers (new and old) that I appre­ci­ate them, so every com­ment you leave counts as one entry. And as always I have a lit­tle wid­get below. If you have left at least one com­ment below a post (not this one!) you can enter there and get extra entries. Those are auto­mat­i­cally added and you don’t need to fill out a form or anything.
This time, though, I’ll add some­thing. For every 40 fol­low­ers* I gain, I’ll add prices. This can either mean the win­ner will get two books, or that there will be four win­ners or what­ever. I’m PMS­ing, so please let me.
Also, if you man­age to cheer me up in any other way, you’ll get lots of extra entries. (Like, say.. Sing a song for me. ;D)

Here is what’s up for grabs:

Addi­tion­ally to the books below come all their pre– and sequels (or spin offs) as well sev­eral oth­ers, for exam­ple books you men­tion in the com­ments* and from the Goodreads com­fort reads list here! As well as every book men­tioned in the com­fort reads comments. ;)

Choice of Shoes from Charlotte Russe Giveaway! Ends 6/10 - Open Worldwide

Recently, I got some super awesome shoes from Charlotte Russe. One of those pairs being the ones pictured above (which are my favorite!)

I have gotten so many compliments on them - So... I decided to do a giveaway for a pair! Not necessarily for the same pair, but any pair of the winners choice :)!

I was going to open this giveaway up to US only, as I think Charlotte Russe only delivers to the US, but I decided that if the winner lives internationally I will have the shoes of their choice shipped to me, and I will ship directly to the winner :)

The Giveaway! 
One of you will receive your choice of shoes from Charlotte Russe! Open to international entries

 Go to velvet morning

Storm  (Elementals #1)

by Brigid Kemmerer

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn’t want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.
And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.
Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.
The storm is coming . .
