GIVEAWAYS - Week 8-12 of Footprints in the Sand's Book Challenge & Giveaway(s) 2013

Well I am sure you are wondering what happened to the rest of the giveaways, huh? Well I've done 7 out of the 12 weeks, and am currently reading my 8th book (out of 12) for my Book Challenge. I stopped posting a weekly giveaway and a post about each book I was reading for the Book Challenge because 1) It was taking a long time to take pictures and write a post every week (especially with finals this and next week), and 2) because I wasn't getting enough people entering my giveaways (which means I can't select a winner. Sad, huh?)

So I decided to post one post with ALL THE GIVEAWAYS for the remaining weeks in it. That way you can enter as many or as little as you want, and they are all in the same place and easily accessible! That also means you'll have MORE TIME to enter and SHARE the giveaways! How does that sound? 

Down below is all 5 of the remaining book giveaways (including 2 books that I wasn't able to give away Week 5 and Week 6)!

- I NEED at least 8 people to enter each giveaway in order for me to select the winners, therefore be sure to tell ALL your friends and family about these giveaways!

  1. Favorite mystery novel? Currently, the Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey. Why? I'm usually able to predict most books - even if they're mysteries - but the AC series does a really good job of keeping it's secrets until the end. :)

  2. Comment down below with your adventure (espionage, danger, mystery etc) novel! - I think you mean your "favorite adventure (espionage, danger, etc...)", sooo...well, as I said before, it's currently the Alaskan Courage series (seeing as it definitely counts as an "adventure" novel). :)

  3. Favorite Narnia character? Definitely Shasta! Always wanted to be him. He runs away to Narnia and gets to ride a talking horse, I mean, how cool is that? Not to mention the scene where Shasta talks to Aslan in the mist is pretty much my favorite scene in the entire Narnia Chronicles. :)

  4. Favorite work? Definitely The Horse and His Boy, and because of the scene where Shasta meets Aslan, especially that conversation where Aslan reveals that he's the only lion they ever met. Rather reminiscent of Footprints in the Sand story. :) And for some reason THaHB has always stuck with me. :)

    What about you? What's your favorite Narnia character/Lewis work?

    1. Well my favorite Narnian character(s) would be Jewel the Unicorn (from The Last Battle), Tirian (the Prince from tLB), and Polly and Digory from The Magician's Nephew. Although I really like most of the Narnian characters :) As for favorite C.S. Lewis works, I'd have to say Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, really actually all of them :) His ingenious explanations, analogies, his wonderful way of saying things...I love all his work.

  5. Favorite sci-fi characters? Definitely Obi-Wan Kenobi, Daniel Jackson, and John Sheppard. :)
    What would have wanted to be? Jedi Knight. Definitely. :P

  6. My favorite mystery novels would probably be the Hardy Boys series. I finished this series years ago, but it will always be my favorite! Ah, the memories :)
    -John Klicka

  7. If could have been anything when I was younger, I definitely would have been a race car driver! As a little tike, thrill was everything for me.
    -John Klicka

  8. My favorite work by CS Lewis would for sure be The Horse and His Boy and The Magician's Nephew. I love how everything is started in the Magician's Nephew, and the always exciting journey in The Horse and His Boy.

  9. Comment down below with your adventure (espionage, danger, mystery etc) novel~ The Hobbit! Massive fan over here, classic book :)

  10. Comment down below with your adventure (espionage, danger, mystery etc) novel~ The Hobbit! Massive fan over here, classic tale! And all the Nancy Drew books ;)

  11. Favorite C.S. Lewis work? Am I allowed to say the all of The Chronicles of Narnia? Growing up on those stories and the themes and allegories that are within them has greatly influenced me for the better. Understanding the gospel in the set of a great story beautifully crafted by a great author. My favorite! :)

  12. If you could have been anything when you were younger (i.e. private detective etc), what would it have been? ~ Definitely a detective! All those Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys/Mandie/Sherlock Holmes (this should be higher on the list)/The Boxcar Children/A Series Of Unfortunate Events books. Ahh childhood...

    1. Ahh yes, the joys of childhood...and all those wonderful books that inspired us :)

  13. Comment below with your favorite mystery novel(s) and why!~Nancy Drew. She made me want to be a detective. She was a role model, probably an idol of my young years as well haha.
