Celebrating with a giveaway!

This blog is officially one month old!! For me it's a huge milestone. To go from one follower to 16 in one month has brought a huge smile to my face. To celebrate I am having a giveaway! My first giveaway comes to us courtesy of Wett Giggles soap ( The products at Wett Giggles are Natural glycerin handmade soaps, each bar is made one at time with essential oils and shea butter. The soaps are aimed at children and families, and a lucky winner will get all three of their new Planet Soaps and a T-shirt. To win you must be a registered follower of my blog. The first person to post the correct answer will win.

To win just tell me who wrote this passage and what novel it comes from, " Serene was a word you could put to Brooklyn, New York. Especially in the summer of 1912. Somber, as a word, was better. But it did not apply to Williamsburg, Brooklyn."
For my first giveaway I wanted to make the question as easy as possible, rather than the standard random drawing. If no one gets it after a week, then I'll resort to the random drawing. Hopefully at some point, everyone has read this book. I've read it at least four times. As always happy reading everyone!!


  1. Hi there,

    Just found your blog and I'm excited to follow it! I love books!

    Hope you don't mind if I answer your question. The books is: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. I can't find my copy at the moment and it's been years since I read it but... I think that's the one you're looking for!

  2. That didn't take too long. We have a winner!!! Thank you for following my blog. E-mail me at to let me know where I can send it.
