Hi booklovers! Guess what!?!? I won not one BUT TWO BOOKS from the Goodreads Giveaway yesterday! When I opened the emails, I was quite surprised. It’s been such a long time since I’ve won anything from Goodreads and I’ve never won two books at the same time. Let alone books I actually REALLY WANT TO READ.
I join a bunch of these giveaways and choose books I think I’d like and what some of my family and friends would like… so yeah, I join quite a lot. Even if I don’t have much luck, I still do cause hey, you just never know when you’ll win. And I guess this time I was lucky so YAY ME!!
Sidenote – I noticed that when I join the giveaway on the day it ends or one day before, I seem to have just a bit more luck — About 90% of the books I’ve won this way. Not sure if it means anything or if that’s like a little trick or whatever, but it seems to work for me.
Here are the two books I won!

1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome;
2) A person’s undoing;
3) Joshua Templeman.
Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.
Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.
I’ve been putting off reading this one, but now I guess I have no more excuse since I’m receiving a copy for FREE! I’ve heard so many great things about The Hating Game so I’m so beyond thrilled that I won. Cannot wait!!!
