drumroll please!

it’s time to announce the winners of my Blind Date with A  Book Give Away!!   This was a little more complicated than just putting everyone’s name into, so I went all old school on ya’ll, and literally drew names out of hats plastic containers.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
