So much more than I expected!

-And last but definitely not least… I also received the BIGGEST package by far by author, Sophia Henry!!!
A little backstory: I entered one of her giveaways on Instagram that I ended up winning but I forgot to read the little detail that the giveaway was for an e-book copy of her book! As many of you know, I lack an e-reader. So, I told Sophia and she messaged back and told me to give her the name of a book I have been dying to get and she would gift me it. When I read this, I died… because the book I have been DYING to get has been Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas for over a year. So, I told her and BAM! She agreed to it. I could’ve fainted right then and there. So, weeks go by and then I find a box on my doorstep… I start screaming, I open it and this is what I see:
WHAT!?!?!?!? She included sooooo many things that I didn’t expect and I seriously cried and shook with excitement. No wonder the box was so heavy! I kneeled on the ground and lost it, no joke. So, finally the hysteria subsided and I started going through everything she sent me:
-3 booklets with the first few chapters of her book, the one I originally won, Delayed Penalty, 2 bookmarks, 2 business cards, 4 book cards, a hand-written note, 2 pink baggies with little pucks, a blue bag with temporary tattoos, pins, a mirror, and bracelets, a wrapped package with another hand-written note, and QUEEN OF SHADOWS!!!
So again, once the second episode of hysteria went away, I went to open the wrapped package and found this:
No joke, no lies just truth. A KINDLE!!!!!!! Sophia… sent… ME… a kindle….. AHH!!!!! I cried again. She also sent me a code to redeem an amazon gift from her, which was her book. Also, there are MANY books already in the kindle… some by Colleen Hoover!
So, I didn’t end up just getting Queen of Shadows… I got book swag and book galore as well!!!
What a way to start off a weekend!
On 9/22/15 I received:
–Detective Docherty and the Demon’s Tears by Sarah WaterRaven
–Avalon, a Soothsayer novella, by Allison Sipe
On 9/26/15 I received:
A surprise package from an AMAZING and talented bookstagrammer and hilarious friend, Sarah!
It included a hand-written card and a small wrapped package.
She messaged me saying that she had something that belonged with me so she sent it. Seriously, this woman is hysterical, there isn’t a dull moment with her on IG. Everybody needs to follow her like yesterdy.
Also, she didn’t know what my last name was so she gave me one: Cassandra Crypt-keeper. I freaking love this woman, you can tell how hilarious she is just by reading that!
So this is the gift she sent:
Isn’t he just the most adorable thing ever!? I love it so much!!!
I can’t wait to include him in my bookstagram pictures! So look out for him(:
This last week felt like a dream to me. I was walking on clouds and nothing and nobody was able to ruin it because of all of these wonderful people. I have said this and I’ll say this again, joining this community will forever be the best decision I have ever made!
Thank you so much everybody for taking part in on of the most memorable days of my life!!!
