12 Months of Christmas
A Booklovers Best Christmas Ever 2023 has begun!
What is the “A Booklover’s Best Christmas Ever” contest? It’s a huge sweepstakes where I’ll fill a large box with full-sized books and bookish gifts (one for every month of the year) and at Christmas time, I’ll draw a name and mail the filled box of presents to one lucky booklover to put beneath their Christmas tree.
After the winner is announced, I’ll wrap each gift, then haul the box off to the post office so that one winner gets loads of book-themed presents on Christmas morning and has the best Christmas ever.
And the best part: I’m so happy to announce that this contest is open internationally!
Scroll down to see what’s in the box so far!
How to enter and contest rules:
Firstly, subscribe to my newsletter to have each contest update emailed to you along with ways to increase your odds! (The winner must be subscribed to my newsletter/email list.)
Every month, I’ll be posting a video on my social media about the contest. In each video I’ll show you the latest gift that I’m adding to the box, tell you a little bit about it, and tell you how to increase your odds of winning by helping me spread the word by sharing the video, tagging friends, etc.
In December, I’ll be randomly choosing 10 finalists from those who are:
1) Subscribed to my newsletter
2) I’ll pick a few random videos/social media posts to see who has shared/engaged with them, and I’ll add those people to the finalists’ draw
3) The winner must be following me on at least one of my following accounts: TikTok, Instagram, or be subscribed to my YouTube channel
And from those ten finalists, I’ll be doing a draw for ONE LUCKY BOOK-LOVING WINNER!
In order for me to be able to contact you about winning, you must be subscribed to my newsletter. The winner will be announced via newsletter, and via live feed on TikTok (and privately contacted through the email you’ve provided).
PLEASE BE AWARE: There are several fake accounts on TikTok pretending to be me (they are even using my profile picture) and they are replying to comments and sending messages. If you get a private message about the contest from an account with my name or picture saying that you’ve won, or to follow a link, please check the profile of the sender because it’s likely not me. (I will not be contacting anyone via private message on social media regarding this contest unless I absolutely have to.)
Ways to win:
Use the hashtag #ABookLoversBestChristmasEver wherever you can so I can find your shared posts!
In the 2023 Box so Far:
*Books 1-4 of The Winter Souls Series: A magical, family-friendly YA fantasy book series inspired by Christmas folklore, with a lighthearted middle grade feel, underlying Christian themes, and loads of cozy Christmas vibes.

How to Increase Your Odds of Winning:
I’ll be keeping an eye out for people who are sharing about the contest! Share the following contest videos on social media (and use the hashtag #abookloversbestchristmasever or tag me so I can find your posts!) When it’s time to select finalists for the draw, some of the finalists will be chosen based on if they shared one or more of the contest posts. (So if you’re subscribed to my email, you will go into the draw automatically. If you also share a contest post and I put your social media handle into the draw, you can be in the draw twice!)
Here are the first contest videos you can share:
