Book Spotlight Giveaway! ~ And Your Feedback ~ Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer #FiveDaysLeft

I have sooooo many books! The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy these treasures.


I read Five Days Left when it came out in 2014 and loved it! It is such an emotional story. You can read my thoughts here

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Five Days Left

Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer
Hardcover, 352 pages
Published September 9th 2014 by G.P. Putnam's Sons

Mara Nichols, a successful lawyer, and devoted wife and adoptive mother, has recently been diagnosed with a terminal disease. Scott Coffman, a middle school teacher, has been fostering an eight-year-old boy while the boy’s mother serves a jail sentence. Scott and Mara both have five days left until they must say good-bye to the ones they love the most.

Through their stories, Julie Lawson Timmer explores the individual limits of human endurance, the power of relationships, and that sometimes loving someone means holding on, and sometimes it means letting go.

Help me out!!

I'm rethinking my giveaways; how I run them, if I should still do them weekly, maybe change to social media giveaways only (Facebook, Instagram, etc). I guess what I'm saying is—I'm ready for a change. Should I even continue them?

I've been doing Book Spotlight Giveaways since the end of 2013. That's 6 years! Phew!! Time for a change? 

Leave a comment below and tell me your thoughts and any suggestions you might have for me about what I can/should do. Let me know what you think. 

You can earn 5 points on the Rafflecopter this week, if you leave me a comment!

  1. Facebook and instagram giveaways are common, but I also know that limits your blog interaction if you don't require visits/comments here. I enjoy your giveaways because they are for books I might never find out about otherwise. If you need a change up, then give it a try and you can always go back.

  2. I like the way it is now. What are you thinking of changing?

  3. You could add a share on option.

  4. you should do what makes it interesting & fun for you.

  5. I enjoy visiting your blog and finding out about new books. You read a lot of different books than I do, so it gives me a chance to explore a little. I don't like Instagram-only giveaways (to enter myself).

    Try what works for you!

  6. I'm glad I found your blog.

  7. I love entering giveaways and just found yours! Thanks!

  8. I like entering giveaways on blogs that don't involve social media.

  9. I say continue the way you are doing it currently, but instead of weekly consider monthly. That way it isn't nearly as draining and demanding of your time.

  10. Hmmm......I don't know how you could change it up unless you had more giveaways. I usually don't know about these books until I enter your giveaways.

  11. I love to read about new books. Thats why I come to your blog. Maybe a share option on IG and FB might be good. Or tag a couple of people so more people follow you


Thanks SO much for leaving me a comment! Every single one means a whole lot to me!
