Hi everyone! Welcome back!
This coming February we’re going to do something a little bit different. It’s something that I like to call My Secret Valentine. It’s pretty much the same thing as My Secret Santa in December, but it’s for Valentines Day. And what better way for bloggers and readers alike to celebrate Valentines Day, or just February in general, with books and goodies from other readers.
Ideally, your package should have 1-2 books (you can include more!) and a little goody thrown in there. What I like to do is put in about 3 books and then get a few $1 goodies to throw in (you’d be surprised what Walmart has!) You will receive a wishlist containing books that your Secret Valentine wants. You do not have to go out and buy the books. Pick out some books from your bookshelf if you want! Their list is just to give you an idea of what they want. You are more than welcome to completely surprise them. Please don’t only ask for Arcs. You may ask for some Arcs or indicate that you’re open to ARCS. But please keep in mind that not everyone receive Arcs. That being said, feel free to include any Arcs in your package. That decision is completely up to you.
My Secret Valentine is open internationally. However, not everyone is going to be willing to ship international. So if you’re international, I will do my best to make it so you can participate in this event. Also, if you are international, please let me know where you can ship books. I’m not very familiar with shipping and everything outside of the U.S….so just let me know when you sign up.
Please only sign up for this if you’re truly interested in giving and receiving Valentines Day gifts. This is our first time doing this, and I really hope that everyone has a great time.
Sign Ups will last until January 3rd. You will be emailed by the 5th with your Secret Valentine. Packages need to be sent out by January 25th. If you do not receive your package by February 20th, please email us and let us know and we will try our very best to contact your Secret Valentine.
*Tracking is mandatory for your package!*

3) Link to your website (you do not have to be a blogger, but you do have to send me some sort of link so I know you’re not just trying to scam books.)
4) 5-10 books on your wish list. (you can include a Goodreads link)
5) Is there anything you would like your Secret Valentine to know? (i.e: types of genres you like, things you don’t like, the types of goodies you like (ex: nail polish, caffeine, Harry Potter, chocolate)
6) Are you willing to ship International?
