Blogoversary & Giveaway!

Sunday, April 13 marked the three-year anniversary of this blog! Although I’d been blogging – mostly about my kids – since 2006, it wasn’t until I launched Crow River Writer that I really got into my groove. I’ve loved sharing bookish and writerly thoughts and making so many lasting connections with other readers and writers. Thank you for reading my words, for your support and laughter over the last three years.

I luuurve you all. (I just read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS again. I can't help myself.)

And so, to celebrate, I’ve got a luuurve-y themed giveaway!

  • HOW TO LOVE by Katie Cotugno - a fantastic YA contemporary novel.
From goodreads:
Before: Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he's never seemed to notice that Reena even exists until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated-and pregnant-Reena behind.

After: Almost three years have passed, and there's a new love in Reena's life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena's gotten used to being without Sawyer, and she's finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn't want anything to do with him, though she'd be lying if she said Sawyer's being back wasn't stirring something in her. After everything that's happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?
  • Can’t Buy Me Love DVD starring Patrick Dempsey and Amanda Peterson - one of my favorite 80s movies. (My all-time 80s fave is Pretty in Pink.)

  • Juju Hearts - one of the greatest candies ever.
