New York City Excitement and Where She Went giveaway!!!!

 This time next week I'll be in New York City and I'm so excited.  I've never been to "The City" before and I've been making lots of plans for sights to see and places to shop, eat and did I say shop? One place I am definitely planning to visit is the famous bookstore The Strand and a restaurant that I've heard a lot about (as a vegetarian that dabbles in vegan and raw food) One Lucky Duck.  Luckily for me both of these are pretty close to where I'll be staying.  Of course I'll also be visiting some of the more famous landmarks as well.

Coincidentally, I recently read Where She Went by Gayle Forman which takes place in New York City and let me tell you my review will be a lot of gushing and babbling about how much I loved this book. Where She Went was simply AMAZING! My favorite book of the year so far.  So to celebrate my excitement for my upcoming trip, my birthday (two days ago), and my love for Where She Went I will be hosting a contest for a pre-ordered copy of Where She Went for one of my lucky, lucky followers. Open to all countries that Book Depository ships to.  To enter simply leave me a comment below telling me if you've ever been to New York City and if you have what your favorite place was/is? I'll give an additional point to anyone who is following me.  New followers count too. Leave me your email address as well so I can get in touch with you if you win.  I'm starting the contest right now and running it until March 21st at midnight.  I'll announce the winner by Friday the 25th.  Good Luck!


  1. I have visited New York City plenty of times. I live a few minutes away from it and it's usually the place for an afternoon stroll by just taking the train. =P

    My favorite place is Times Square. It's amazing that no matter how many times I go there I never get tired of it and it's like seeing it for the first time.

    Also I am following you.

  4. Two Christmas' ago one of my presents was a bus tour to NYC with my mum :D It was only for 2 nights & 3 days but was a ton of fun. My favourite place was Central Park. Yes, not very unique, but VERY beautiful. I wish we could have spent more time there.
