Enter To Win: Lavazza Classico Ground Coffee, Wearable Blanket, True Crime Coffee Mug, signed Copy of What Happened That Night, and $150 Gift Card

‘We tell stories in order to live,’ or so said Joan Didion.

Even if the stories are as difficult to write as they are to read, they hold the power to change your worldview. They give you strength, and evoke thoughts that you never knew existed. Stories inherently have the power to make you feel less isolated; a voice of a true friend that reverberates your feelings in this void of loneliness called the world.

With a theme like sexual assault, this story can be triggering and is not an easy read. But we’ve put together this giveaway to keep you company and comfort you as you take your time reading this book.

“Literature has such power to evoke feelings, responses, passions. It gives others the opportunity to see something from another perspective and to realize that this is important. It’s important not to shame. It’s important to know when to listen. It’s important to know when to speak up.” – Deanna Cameron

Lavazza Classico Ground Coffee to keep you up all night reading

Wearable Blanket to keep you warm and fuzzy

True Crime Coffee Mug for your coffee

Signed Copy of What Happened That Night,

About the Book

Golden boy Griffin Tomlin is found dead, floating in his pool, the morning after his family’s Labor Day party, and neighbor Emily Porterfield is arrested for his murder. No one knows why she killed him, except for her younger sister, Clara. The secrets behind What Happened That Night unravel in dual timelines:

In the present, Clara struggles with the aftermath of the murder—questions and distrust from her friends, denial from her parents, and visits to her sister in jail. And amidst all of that, another body is discovered that could be connected.

In flashback, the events that brought Clara, Griffin, and Emily together and that led to his death are revealed—events that involve a crush, an obsession, and a shocking twist.

Enter To Win: Wellness Kit Including Yoga Mat, Candles, Journal, And More Along With $100 Gift Card

The last year taught many of us an important lesson: taking care of your wellness and health is vital to your life—your health is more important than anything else. Many of us believe that the condition of our health is determined by how we look or how much we weigh, or that being healthy only consists of eating well and exercising regularly. In times like these, we might even think that the condition of being in good health is merely the absence of sickness.

However, wellness goes far beyond that. It goes beyond our physical health and extends well into mental, emotional, and spiritual health as well. Your body, mind, and spirit are all connected, and not taking care of one can be just as harmful as not taking care of the others. Well, we have Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, Dondeena Bradley Ph.D, and Sonia Satra, founder, and CEO of Moticise, teaming up with Bookstr for a Mega-Wellness Giveaway this month.

Yoga, meditation, hydration, and mindfulness are all things that can help you to ensure that you’re living a life of wellness, and will help to benefit both your mind and body.

So, to help you make 2021 the year of health, we have teamed up with three wellness authors and speakers with a giveaway to help you make your health a top priority this year!

About the Books

Heart Book: Every Woman’s Guide to a Heart-Healthy Life

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States. As a cardiologist with specializations in preventative cardiology and women’s heart disease, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum has dedicated her career to empowering women to keep their hearts, and themselves, healthy. She has observed that patients who seem to be at the peak of their lives are also often at the peak of their stress levels. Instead of enjoying better health and happiness, and reaping the rewards of career and family achievements, many of the women who come to see her suffer from chest pain, palpitations, and other alarming symptoms. Often, the cause is lifestyle-related, calling for a holistic approach that transcends medical intervention alone.

 

The regimen Dr. Steinbaum developed has transformed thousands of lives and is now available to every woman in Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book.

ABOUT THE BOOK

A female American spy in Nazi-occupied France finds purpose behind enemy lines in a novel of unparalleled danger, love, and daring by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Beantown Girls.

Anna Cavanaugh is a restless young widow and brilliant French teacher at an all-girls school in Washington, DC. Everything changes when she’s recruited into the Office of Strategic Services by family friend and legendary WWI hero Major General William Donovan.

Donovan has faith in her—and in all his “glorious amateurs” who are becoming Anna’s fast friends: Maggie, Anna’s down-to-earth mentor; Irene, who’s struggling to find support from her husband for her clandestine life; and Julia, a cheerful OSS liaison. But the more Anna learns about the organization’s secret missions, the more she longs to be stationed abroad. Then comes the opportunity: go undercover as a spy in the French Resistance to help steal critical intelligence that could ultimately turn the tide of the war.

Dispatched behind enemy lines and in constant danger, Anna is filled with adrenaline, passion, and fear. She’s driven to make a difference—for her country and for herself. Whatever the risk, she’s willing to take it to help liberate France from the shadows of occupation and to free herself from the shadows of her former life.
