Follower Appreciation Giveaway! August 1-31 (INT)

It's finally here! Gizmo's Reviews Follower Appreciation Month!

The rules are pretty simple:

(2) randomly chosen winners will win their choice of ANY Adult or YA novel that
releases during the month of August. If you're wondering what books are coming out,
never fear my dears, there is a partial list below!

If, at any point during the month of August Gizmo's Reviews hits 500 GFC
followers, the stakes raise even higher. There will be (2) random winners who will
choose (2) books out of the August releases! Yes, that means I would be giving
away 4 books in total if I hit 500 followers! 

In addition to my giveaway, I am also connecting you with my fellow blogger
Jenese from Readers  Confessions to give you more choices to win!
 You can find her blog here

Below is a list of Adult books that are releasing in August. 
(For the record, there are also 41 Young Adult books releasing as well!)


Also, as a way to get to know Jenese and I better, we did a buddy interview. 
Just a few short questions about blogging and our likes!

Jenese @ Readers Confession

When did you start blogging?

I started blogging mid May 2012, I'm still a baby to the blogging world.

Why did you start blogging?

I really didn't have anyone to speak to about my books that I read. I started with Goodreads and make lots of friends there, eventually I just wanted to expand. I thought about blogging for about a year before I finally did start.

What is your favorite part of blogging?
There are a few things. I love being able to connect with authors more by guest posts and interviews. I also love interacting with other bloggers and readers. Being able to talk about our favorite books.

My favorite interview/post?
Lorelei James blog tour, I love her Rough Riders (contemporary erotica western series) and it was so cool to be a part of that. Also indie author, Toni Aleo for Trying to Score. Great book.

Something about me that most don't know.
I have 6 tattoos and am still planning to get more. :-P

Most anticipated read for 2012?
Indie author, Toni Aleo's third book Empty Net, Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione and Breathe by Sarah Cossan

Favorite read of 2012 so far
This is tough. I have a few...Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, Lethal Rider by Larissa Ione and Trying to Score by Toni Aleo.
