Giveaway: A Box of Books

by jessicaturner on January 13, 2014

Wasn’t last week fun?! I loved talking books all week long. My reading list is SO long after all those recommendations. Y’all are amazing.

And to those who asked, yes, I will do that series again. Pinky promise.

jessicaturner-graphic1In case you missed My 10 Favorite Books, here are all the posts:

My 10 Favorite Books with Jessica Turner
My 10 Favorite Books with Sarah Bessey
My 10 Favorite Books with Sarah Markley
My 10 Favorite Books with Kayla Aimee
My 10 Favorite Books with Nish Weiseth

This weekend I was stacking a bunch of books to read on my nightstand and realized that I had several duplicate copies of some new books (perks of being a blogger!). Since so many of you love to read as much as I do, I thought it would be fun to gift someone with a box of books!

BookGiveaway

Here’s what’s included:

Restless: Because You Were Made for More by Jennie Allen: Jennie and I have gotten to know each other a bit over the past year. She is passionate, authentic and genuinely kind. Her passion for Christ is inspiring. I haven’t had a chance to dive into Restless yet, but I know it is going to speak loudly to me. (You can read the first three chapters for free here.)

Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose by Candace Cameron Bure: What can I say? I grew up in the 80s and Full House was one of my favorite shows. Now both DJ and I are all grown up. I admire Candace and as a working mom, I am interested in her perspective on “balance”.

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode: 9 Simple Strategies to Stress Less, Sleep More, and Restore Your Passion for Life by Crystal Paine: This book releases later this month and man, it is an awesome read. I feel like Crystal and I were cut from the same cloth. :) Any busy woman will appreciate the truths in this book.

The Greatest Gift: Unwrapping the Full Love Story of Christmas by Ann Voskamp: This book blessed me so much this Christmas season. Ann’s words are like balm to the soul.

Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon a Project, Read Samuel Johnson, and My Other Experiments in the Practice of Everyday Life by Gretchen Rubin: I love Gretchen Rubin’s writing style. I have had this on my list to read for a long time. I think it’s the perfect book for the new year.

I’ll also probably throw in a few other sundries because after all that 90% off Christmas shopping, my gift stash is overflowing. :)

So, if you would like to win a box of books from me, just enter using the Rafflecopter below. I’ll pick a winner this weekend.
