The Dystopian Giveaway Hop is here!

Hello! And welcome to the Dystopian hop Giveaway hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and My Shelf Confessions!

I love well done dystopian novels. And lately, there have been a lot to choose from!

Today, I have a special giveaway for you!

a little breath of fresh air & Happy Halloween!

And so ends the crazy happiness of October. Don't get me wrong. November continues my love of autumn with pumpkins, turkey and stuffing! But after all the reviews, giveaways and fun stuff in October, I'm ready to take a little break this month.

I'm tired! (see photo of self on left)

I envision a November full of hot tea, gingerbread, maybe some pumpkin loaf, and a book. Or five.

I'd love to know what you are doing this month. Are you hosting Thanksgiving? Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Have you tried To-furkey?
