Wanderlove GIVEAWAY

To celebrate the release of Wanderlove, which hit the bookstore shelves yesterday, we have a fun giveaway for you all!

Author Kristen Hubbard (Like Mandarin) has created a brand-new Wanderlove-themed Tumblr site to celebrate its release. Wanderlove is set in Central America--in over a dozen locations and many of the places are exist in real-life and based on the author's own traveling adventures.

Kristen have been featuring all the destinations in Wanderlove with her personal photos but she is also inviting everyone to share their favorite places.

Here's the info from the submit page:
wanderlove is about celebrating our favorite places, and experiencing each other's. take a photo, or find a photo (one you’ve taken yourself & have the rights to) of your favorite place. it could be a place you’ve traveled to, long ago or recently; a special spot in your neighborhood, city or town; or even in your house or backyard. be as creative as you want. include a few sentences about why the place is special to you – why you *get* it, why it sticks in your heart. thank you!
You can also submit via email at wanderbooks (at) gmail (dot) com.
If you haven't already, feel free to go to the Wanderlove website and submit your own photo of your favorite place. I did!

I submitted a photo of my grandparents' house in the Philippines that I took last year when I visited the house I grew up in (until my family moved to the US when I was eight years old):

For this giveaway, we would like to know where your favorite place is or where would you like to travel to and you can win a copy of Wanderlove! I am currently reading it and, trust me, you want this book. 'Tis fantastic!

  1. Yay for a giveaway! If we don't win, we'll probably buy the book anyway, but we appreciate the chance.

    Also, your grandparents' house looks sweet. Reminds Kristan of her grandparents' old house in Taiwan. :)

  2. My paternal grandmother came over her from Calais, France when she was 14 years old...I never got to meet her because she passed away a few months before I was born...
    I would love to trace my roots in Calais, France!
    Many thanks, Cindi
