My “Hackers Are Stupid And Even Though Google Is Just Doing Their Job It All Still Sucks Balls” Giveaway!

As you all know, I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller-coaster lately thanks to dumbass hackers and how they got me blocked from any and all of Google’s search engines.  *sigh*  Well, I’m tired of being pissed off and sad and I want you guys to help me feel super happy again.  How can you guys do that?  By entering my giveaway!

I’m calling this one my “Hackers are stupid and even though Google is just doing their job it all still sucks balls” giveaway!  I know, I know.  I am so awesome at coming up with titles.  *blushes from all the praise*

Below you will find a list of books that have either recently been released or that will soon be released.  To enter my giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment below telling me which one book you would like to win.  Easy peasy.  If the book isn’t out by the time the giveaway ends, I’ll have it sent to you the day it comes out.  Contest open to wherever The Book Depository ships and until September 14th 2011 11:59EST.

So help me feel better by helping me give away a book.  Because believe it or not, sharing book love helps turn my gray skies blue.

  1. Christine Dion says:

    I would love to win Gena Showalter’s The Darkest Surrender.

  2. Vicki Casso says:

    You have handled this MESS with a great deal of humor! I haven’t read any books by Jennifer Estep. Glad all is back to normal.

  3. I’m sorry you’re still dealing with this!

    I’d love JR Ward’s Envy.

  4. I am so sorry you’re still dealing with this. Is it a wordpress thing or can it happen with blogger? I hope you get it cleared up soon and back on track…

    (raises hand for One Grave at a Time)

  5. I love it. Taking something incredibly yucky and making something fun out of it. Love the giveaway. I would choose Nalini Singh… smiles!

  6. Effing hackers! I don’t even think it was a particularly good one! Good ones usually hack Pentagon or MI-5, so it was a stupid one.
    I would kill for Archangel’s Blade! 🙂

  7. Hackers, ughh!
    Would love to win Serendipity by Carly Phillips. Thanks!

  8. Have they projected a reinstatement date? I’d love to win Darkness Unbound.

  9. I would love to read Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur. I love her books and can’t wait to read this one!

  10. Vicki – Things on the blog are back to normal, but I’m still waiting to be reinstated by Google.

    Patti – It can happen to anyone. 🙁

    Scooper – No date yet. They just said that it could take weeks and to please not spam request them. lol

  11. Please do not enter me in the contest. But I just wanted to say good for you for getting your feet back on the ground and running. I hope things run smoothly from here on out!

  12. So many good books, it’s hard to pick just one! Okay, I’ll have to say Envy by JR Ward. She is a total genius writer. Also, my sympathies are with you in the Google troubles. Google has their hands in so many places on the internet, it would be hard to function without them. Sending lots fo good internet Google karma over to you today!

  13. I have never read Victoria Dahl so I would love to win that book.

    Julie, I feel for your Google frustration. I’m hoping it is all cleared up for you soon.

  14. Irene Jackson says:

    Glad you are back to normal now . I would like to have Serendipity if I win please.

  15. I’m happy to hear that Jason was able to find the culprits but it still sucks!

    I’d like to win Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur.

    Thanks for the giveaway. Love the title! 😛

  16. Ugh, can’t hackers find something better to do? I’d love to win The Darkest Surrender. I can’t wait until this book comes out, I love LOTU.

    Good reading ~ Escape by Fiction

  17. Book Depository doesn’t ship to this side of the world 🙁 so I’m not participating in the giveaway.
    I kust wanted to tell you that I love your Giveaway Name. Indeed you are awesome at naming…

  18. Thank you for the great giveaway! I would like Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur.

  19. Julie
    I’m sorry to hear you are still dealing with this.Stupid damn hackers!
    Love the title of the post.

    I would love to win Archangel’s Blade.

  20. I’d love to win One Grave at a Time.
    Also, just wanted to say that I found you through Twitter, not Google, so yay for social media.

  21. Hackers – yikes! I’m so relieved that I’ve been able to read the blog through Google Reader! Hope it all gets worked out soon!

    I’d love a copy of Spider’s Revenge!

  22. Rain maiden Jen says:

    I’m sorry you have to deal with that crap. I do love the name of your giveaway..made me laugh. Please throw my name in the hat for Spider’s Revenge.

  23. I’m so sorry for all of your frustration. If it’s any consolation to you, I usually follow toughening Google Reader and I haven’t noticed anything wonky there. As for the giveaway, wow, that’s a great selection. I think 6 of those are on my wishlist, but my choice would be Darkness Unbound. I love Keri Arthur and I’ve been waiting for this book for awhile.

  24. Michelle in Colorado says:

    I wish it was easier to fix. I fallow with Google reader. If I could get one it would be Spider’s Revenge.

  25. I would love JR Ward’s book ENVY. Thanks!!

  26. I hope your troubles will be over soon, evil evil people.

    Hm, most of those are in a series so no, but then there is Serendipity so yes would love to win that one 🙂

  27. I would love to win the new Sophia Dahl book! Thanks for the giveaway and sorry for all the blogger crap!

  28. Sorry to hear about all your blog frustrations! Kudos to you for sticking it out and continuing to post anyway. I mean, life would not be as enjoyable if I’d never been introduced to ‘How to be Outrageously Successful with the Opposite Sex 🙂

    I’d love to win Archangel’s Blade.

  31. You’re awesome and I think it is a perfect title for a giveaway. I’d love the new Nalini one. I just bought the series minus that new one so that is what I’d go for.

    Glad everything seems to be running smooth now.


  32. I would love to win Gena Showalter’s The Darkest Surrender.

    Thank you!

  33. Sorry for your troubles, but that is a great contest name! I already have several of the books listed, but I don’t have Spider’s Revenge by Jennifer Estep and I would love a copy of it. Thanks for the contest!

  34. I’m so sorry that happened to your blog. Did you ever figure out how this person actually was capable of doing that? I never actually had any problems getting to your site because it is saved in my bookmarks. I would like to read Gena’s new title.

  35. Barbara Elness says:

    Hope all your troubles are over, or if they’re not, they will be soon!
    I choose Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur, I love everything she writes and I’ve been waiting for this book to come out.
