Getting to Know You Giveaway Hop (INT)

getting-to-know-youHi! I’m Kristen and I run My Friends Are Fiction. I’ve had this blog up and running for nearly two years and have found this experience to be amazing.

When I started I had no clue that I’d make such wonderful and close friends within the community. If we’ve not gotten to know each other yet I want to! Leave me a link to your blog so I can drop by and visit.

I’d say my favorite feature here on the blog would be the Lego Book Covers. My husband and I team up and make our favorite covers Lego-fied (no clue the correct term for this). Regardless, we use our love of Lego (did you know the plural of Lego is Lego?) to make some really fun recreations. Here are a few that we’ve done…

If you’d like to see more you can here. We have a few we’re working on now the next being based on Ensnared by A.G. Howard. Beyond the Lego obsession I really enjoy interviewing authors as well as the cover artists/designers.

In my personal life I’m a stay-at-home mom and wife. Prior to staying home with the kiddo I worked as a marketing coordinator. The job that was the most interesting (and my first) was at ADV Films, an anime dubbing company. Not only was the environment incredibly fun and laid back I met my husband there. You can learn more about me (if you feel so inclined) in this post I did- 20 Things About Me

Now to books! I gravitate to fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction and pretty much anything that doesn’t take place in our current world. Some of my favorite books are anything by Marie Rutkoski, Sarah J. Maas, A.G. Howard, Kendare Blake, Mary E Pearson…and the list can go on and on.

I couldn’t decide on which book I’d like to include as my giveaway so I figured I’d let you choose from three of my most coveted 2015 releases. This will be a pre-order and international (if Book Depository ships to your location).

You may choose a pre-order of one of the below…

 A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)An Ember in the AshesRed Queen (Red Queen, #1)

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir or Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
