Month of Canada for #Canada150 Wrap Up & Giveaway!

Whew! It has been a crazy month of ALL Canada this month! I am so happy to have brought you, my dear reader, so many wonderful book reviews, interviews, recommendations, and so much more all month!

To thank everyone who came to visit my blog during the past month, I thought I’d have a giveaway! I’m not gonna lie, but Simon & Schuster Canada made this easy for me after I won a giveaway for one of my favourite Canadian books this year. They sent it to me without telling me I won and even though I read the book and own the book, I was still so excited to see it when I ripped open the package!

I was super excited after reading K. A. Tucker’s Ten Tiny Lies to read her new book coming out this year that I had to drive out to the bookstore the day it was released and buy it! This was despite the fact that it was 50% online and not in-store, but honestly, her books are worth full price. This story was fantastic and just a feel good Cinderella-type story that I adored.

To enter, leave a MEANINGFUL COMMENT (Generic comments will not be counted!) on this post and let me know what your favourite post of this month was, why you love reading Canada, and what your favourite Canadian book this year has been. Be sure to leave your email address as well, so I can let you know if you win! I will choose a winner on August 15th. Giveaway rules apply. Open internationally!

In case you missed something, here’s the final wrap up of what happened on the blog this month:

Bookish Canadians To Follow (Shared on Twitter – ignore the formatting, WordPress didn’t want to cooperate with me!):

On Twitter, I shared a whopping ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FOUR bookish Canadians! From readers to bloggers to writers to publishers, there were SO MANY that I just had to share! If I had planned properly, I probably could’ve made it to 150!

Find all of the wonderful bookish Canadians I want YOU to follow by following this link! 

On top of all of these posts, I loved interacting with so many Canadian readers and authors, sharing other bloggers’, publishers’, and authors’ love for all things Canada, and reading tons of books authored by amazing Canadian authors! 150 is seriously a big deal and I’m so happy to have gotten to share everything I could about this amazing country.
