Alternate Reality Giveaway Introduction Post

Alternate Reality GiveawayHello everyone! I’m very excited to announce that today marks the very first giveaway hosted on The Thousand Lives!

I’m teaming up with my BFF Veronica (Talking Bookworm) to bring you guys two weeks of awesome features, fun, and, of course, books!

I recently found myself in the possession of some ARCs that I won’t be reading any time soon, and I wanted to give them away to someone who will give them the attention they deserve. And since it’s coming up on my first year anniversary of The Thousand Lives in May, Veronica and I figured we could celebrate a bit early!

Over the next two weeks, until the end of March, Veronica and I will be posting back and forth on our blogs, and working together on some posts as well. If you haven’t followed her yet, click here so you can keep up with all the action!

If you haven’t guessed by the titled on our lovely banner, this giveaway’s theme is Alternate Realities, which is our blanket name for paranormal, fantasy, fairy tale, and post-apocaltypic tales. So if you’re a huge contemporary lover, consider this your entry level course into the unknown! And if you’re a huge fan of these genres, welcome to the club!

Our posts will be split two ways: discussion (code for: fangirling) and fun/interactive games. I’ll be discussing fantasy books (angels and demons!) and fairy tales (you can bet your bottom dollar that the Lunar Chronicles will show up). Veronica will be discussing all things that creep in the night, and the post-apocalyptic stories that make you feel like Radioactive should be playing in the background. Once per week, she and I will combine our efforts and have a bit of fun, and maybe most likely make fools of ourselves and goof off.

Schedule of Posts:

  • Monday 3/17 – I’ll discuss angels and demons, and spotlight our first giveaway book
  • Wednesday 3/19 – Alternate Reality trivia crossword puzzle!
  • Friday 3/21 – Veronica discusses paranormal novels, and features our second giveaway book
  • Monday 3/24 – I’ll discuss the “fairy tales reworked” trend in YA right now, and feature our third giveaway book
  • Wednesday 3/26 – Veronica and I will take a survey and comment on each others’ answers. Warning: snark, feels, and lol-ing may occur.
  • Friday 3/28 – Veronica discusses post-apocalyptic tales, and spotlights our final giveaway book
  • Monday 3/31 – Final wrap up, and announcing the giveaway winners!
