Armchair BEA Day 3 - ISO Books and Giveaway

Okay, today's topic:

ISO Books: As readers, we are always looking for our next book to read or a stack to fill our TBR shelves. This is your opportunity to ask using our Armchair Book Expo Book Suggestion Generator (aka YOU!). Are you wanting to expand your horizons with minority characters? Are you in search of your next book club read? Do you want to explore your graphic novel or comic book options? Or, are you looking for a book that broaches a mental health or childhood issue to help you grow in understanding and knowledge in your personal life? YOU ask and YOU answer. 

So, this is a little bit hard as well!  Honestly, most of my ISO books are ones that are completing series I've started and loved, or maybe new authors to read that are similar to ones I already love and have read all of their books.  Since I'm hoping/planning to attend ApollyCon next year again, there will of course be more authors that are new to me, that I'd like to try to read at least one of their books since I'll have the chance to meet them.  Here are a few of them that are new to me:

AJ Pine
AL Jackson
Alex Grayson
Andrea Joan
Barbie Bohrman
Debra Anastasia
J. Daniels
Jennifer Blackwood
Kendall Ryan
Kristen Callihan
Lexi Bissen
Nichole Chase
Penelope Ward
Pintip Dunn
Rebecca Shea
Rebecca Yarros
Riley Edgewood
Robin Covington
Tonya Burrows
Whitney G.

Are any of these authors that you have read before and would recommend I start with?  

And here at last is a giveaway from me!  I'm going to mail a box of mystery ARCs.  All are from 2016 or 2017.  Unfortunately I have to make this giveaway for the US only because I am poor.  And because I need my next paycheck from my school library job, I will run this giveaway until the 15th so that I have the money to mail out a box.  Just enter the Rafflecopter below.  All you have to do to enter is follow me in some way.

  1. Oh Lisa, any gift you can offer is beyond kind. And yes, the USPS is expensive! ;) Thank you for the opportunity, and thank you for joining the Book of Choice in June. YOU ROCK!

    1. Did I sign up for June? I thought just July. June has been a crazy broke month for me!

  2. I have a question: if I pay for the shipping in case I might win, may I enter? Thank you.

  3. Thank you for offering this giveaway! I'm sure anyone who wins will be willing to work with you to make the shipping easier!

    1. Yeah, that is the only problem with how much international shipping is if it's something I have to send.

  4. Lisa: Thanks so much, you are so awesome to offer this! I also am only doing US, shipping is soooo expensive!!! Media mail is the only thing that makes it more doable, I wish I could do more! Christina @ Ensconced in Lit

    1. I'll do international shipping if it's something I can send with The Book Depository.
