{Giveaway Hop} Hello My Name Is... Giveaway Hop! [Jan 7-14] #Hello2016

my name is

We’re ringing in the New Year with lots of giveaways! And by sharing some fun and wacky facts about ourselves. There’s a new giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!

Hello, My Name is Clever Girl and thanks for taking the time to stop by Clever Girls Read. If this is your first time visiting, welcome, please take a look around, and if you're a returning reader, hi! thanks for coming back.

This blog hop is a chance for you to get to know me better - I rarely share anything other than my love of books - and to give you a chance to win one of my favorite books. Without further ado:

Things about me

About reading:

I read everywhere and while doing everything. In the car (when someone else is driving), while cooking, folding laundry, while waiting for my computer to boot up... I'm reading. And don't get me started with audiobooks, I'm addicted to audiobooks. I listen while working, cleaning, exercising, and with my trusty Speedo Aquabeat MP3 player (I'm on my fourth player), while swimming.

I love to re-read books. I have a whole folder on my Kindle with my favorites that I go back over and over again and re-read. At the moment I'm listening to the Hashtag series by Cambria Hebert, my tenth or so time through it, and I just finished - again - Rock Hard by Nalini Singh (I love The Bishop, sigh). If you haven't checked out either of them GO NOW. Don't worry, I'll be here when you get back.

I hate cliffhangers but I understand why authors write them because they always leave me desperate for the next book. 

About everything else:

I gave up television more than two years ago and almost never miss it. Most people think I'm crazy when I tell them I don't watch tv.

My house is currently full of furniture in various stages of refinishing. I also have filled up my brother's garage.

I have a slight obsession with Sour Patch Kids candy. I believe it's prudent to keep chocolate frosting in the refrigerator and ice cream/gelato in the freezer at all times.

I have four Kindles, two traditional and two Fires. Two Kindles are full. I'm considering buying a fifth. My bookshelves are also full. I have six of them and they're all full. I'd think I have a problem but who could have a problem with books?

I love learning and wish I had all the money in the world so I could stay in college forever and pile up the degrees. At a distance of course, because if I had all the money in the world I'd be on the beach, but that's what online courses are for.

And now for the giveaway:

  1. My Teen likes chocolate frosting in the fridge! She can put it on just about everything!

  2. One of my favorite Tillie Cole books is Eternally North.

  3. I used to sneak any and all books I could get my hands on when I was a preteen. I'm horrified to admit that I read Catcher in the Rye when I was about 12.

  4. I do several re-reads a year. Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie is one of my favorite comfort reads.

  5. "Recommend a book you loved..."
    To pick just one...? Strange Objects by Gary Crew. It's an amazing read.

  6. I re-read Christine Feehan's Dark Magic and need a new book as this one is barely holding on! LOL

  7. I love to read books but I also love to listen to an audiobook in the car, I recommend to get the audiobook Truth or Beard by Penny Reid, not only is the story great but the narrators are amazing.

  8. A confession... Sometimes when I don't have much time to read, but want a whole story, I go to the harlequin website and just read a short freebie.

  9. You don't delete books on your Kindles? How you find stuff in them?

    I just finished The Score by Elle Kennedy (college-set NA) and Crazed by Edie Harris (romantic suspense) yesterday and highly recommend both.

  10. Odd ABOUT ME: I like syrup on my scrapple.
    Books I loved in 2015: Red Queen, Trust Me I'm Lying

  11. I have a titanium steel plate in my forehead and I seriously affect radio signals!

  12. I keep rereading Walking Disaster !

  13. The book that I never get tired of rereading is Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

  14. I'm not sure if you've read the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon, but I love that series. I would recommend it.
