(Belated) BLOGGERVERSAY GIVEAWAY!!!! Win a copy of Richelle Mead's 'Bloodlines'

I missed my bloggerversary in April. (Bad blogger!) It's not that I forgot so much as...well...I was just being lazy about it, to be honest. But you should not interpret my laziness as a sign that I don't appreciate my readers. (I do! I really, really do!) I've just had a lot going on lately, so my time is limited.

Anyway! To show you all how much I love you, and because I love Richelle Mead so much, I have decided to give away a brand new, hardcover copy of her new book 'Bloodlines,' the first book in her new YA series.

'Bloodlines' Description:

"When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, 'Bloodlines' explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood."

The book releases on August 23rd, and I have it pre-ordered, so I'll mail it to the winner once I get it. Sorry, this contest is open to only residents of the US or Canada. I really love and appreciate my international followers, but I can't afford that kind of shipping. Please forgive me!

As an added bonus...

If I should happen to hit 500 blog followers during this giveaway (Hey, it could happen!), I will also give away a hardcover copy of 'Ultraviolet' by RJ Anderson (also a new release and one of my favorite books this year).
