Armchair BEA: Giveaways & Literature

Design credit: Nina of Nina Reads
Today's topic involve FREEBIES!!!!!!!

I figured in keeping in the spirit of actually attending BEA I'll giveaway an ARC copy of a novel I own:

Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy, #2)Anatomy of a Single Girl 
(Anatomy #2)
by Daria Snadowsky
ARC Paperback, 227 pages
Published January 8th 2013 
by Delacorte Books for Young Readers

With Judy Blume-like honesty and insight, this sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend is about life after first love--romance, sex, friendship, family, and the ups and downs of life as a single girl.
After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one.
The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.
But I couldn’t avoid my future forever.
In Daria Snadowsky’s daring follow-up to Anatomy of a Boyfriend, eighteen-year-old Dominique explores the relationship between love and lust, and the friendships that see us through.
Meant to Be
As a bonus, I'm also giving bookmark SWAG for Lauren Morrill's novel because, if you win, clearly it was 
"Meant to Be"!

  6. Well I hoped I could be a clothing designer someday but then my dreams crashed at the age of 8 when I found out I have no skills in drawing! I am a book lover too! And someday hope to astound people just by the number of books I read !!

  17. Anatomy of a Single Girl sounds fun.

  18. I am well. Visiting blogs and listening to The Vow: The Kim & Krickitt Carpenter Story audiobook. Not loving it as expected. How are you doing?

    I enjoyed Fierce Style. I was expecting more fashion and less life advice. What was your biggest takeaway from the book, in terms of your craft?

    1. I really liked Christian's advice on embracing self and creating a personal image that can work a runway. It allowed me not stress so much when I'm in my designing process. Taking chances is what "fashion" is all about. Sometimes as artist seeking to please the masses we forget this basic fact.
