Birthday Celebration & Giveaway! IceyBooks (Hafsah) is 20!

There's something so grown-up with the number 20, huh? You're no longer a teenager, but still not fully considered an adult. Weird how that works, huh?

I know it's not quite Hafah's birthday since I'm EST and she's CST, but I couldn't wait the one more hour! It had to go up during my Midnight! :)

Anyway, I'm celebrating one of my favorite blogger's birthday with y'all! In honor of IceyBooks (Hafsah), I want to give away a book to one of you! Not just any book. No, no, no. This will be a book that the winner will get to choose from Hafsah's "Favorites" list!

This special day will be celebrated worldwide for a week; Saturday to Saturday! Beginning at Midnight EST on May 4 (Hafsah's birthday!) until 11:59 PM EST on May 11, enter to win one of Hafsah's favorites!

In case you're not aware of how amazingly awesome Hafsah is, you can find her at her review blog, (IceyBooks), her design blog (IceyDesigns), and Twitter (@IceyBooks).

Hafsah designed my blog, gave me my "about the author" description, and she is my go-to when I need help on so many things. To be going on 20, she knows so much! I am definitely thankful that she came into my life. Thank you Twitter!!! :)

I also have a special message from Hafsah's sister, Asma! If you're not following Asma, you should (Twitter: @IceyAsma)! She also blogs with Hafsah at IceyBooks.

You all probably know my older sister, Hafsah. But truth be told you
don't spend every day with her. I do. And in my eyes, she does a lot
of things, she's funny, never gives up, and is a versatile person.

We all know that nobody is perfect. Sure, my older sister can be mean,
and sometimes grumpy but that doesn't happen often. She's respectful,
loves to help others, and has an infinite amount of patience for my
annoyingace - yeah that's a word.

I can tell her my ideas, be them wacky or interesting, and she will
always listen and tell me what she thinks. She's a genius too, helps
me with my extremely complicated work even though I don't understand a
thing. Yet she finds a way to drill it into my head.

There's no one else like her. I'm happy to say she's my sister.

And may the cake be ever in her favor!

Cute, right? Awww!
Now, back to the books!

The books that Hafsah has on her "Favorites" list are:

So, since this is a list of HAFSAH's favorites, the giveaway will be for one of these books. I want to stick with this list.

As always, you must be at least 13 to enter. Don't be a goober and try to cheat. This is just for fun and to celebrate a birthday for a wonderful blogger friend!
