Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted right here at KBK. Beyond the Books is a weekly meme where I throw out a topic (mostly non-bookish), and you guys blog about it. Come back here and share the link to your blog post, and we all have fun learning about each other. For more information and future topics click click here.

This week we are talking about things we have won.

Winning feels so good. Don’t you love getting that email that says you won something? It’s almost my favorite thing.

I am not a “lucky” person by nature, but I have won a few books in the past few years. I am gonna try to break this down by place won from.

The books:


First Goodreads. I didn’t win ANYTHING for the first year I entered giveaways. I had all but give up on even entering, and then I saw a blog that seemed to win all the time.

The picture below is from other bloggers. Thanks bloggers for running those giveaways!






The next picture is from a publisher that was doing a summer promo last year. I still can’t believe I won these.







The final stack is from Shelf Awareness. I didn’t realize just how much of my shelf came from that awesome site.

from Goodreads


My most recent win is this book from Goodreads, I haven’t officially received it yet:

the last place on earth

I haven’t won anything but books recently. I would love hear about things you have won.
