GIVEAWAY/BIRTHDAY BASH: Abbi Glines

*Giveaway at the Bottom!!*
*Welcome to the celebration for Abbi Glines' Birthday! Yep, today is this fabulous Author's birthday! Make sure you say happy birthday to her today on her social media pages! Check out my post below, it's basically a post in honor of how much Abbi Glines rocks and there is also a great Giveaway added in at the bottom! ENJOY!*





*Happy Birthday to You!* 
*Happy Birthday to You!* 
*Happy Birthday Day Dear Abbi Glines!!!!!* 
*Happy Birthday to Youuuuuuuu!!!!*
*CELEBRATE BABY!*

*This is such an exciting event! I am honored to be apart of Miss Abbi Glines Birthday event! This is so huge! Sooo many Book Blogs from all over the world will be paying a tribute to the FABULOUS ABBI GLINES! This is an ANYTHING GOES kind of post. So, if you follow around all the blogs participating, chances are you will not see the same thing twice. Multiple people will have the same giveaway going on, but some people will have their own personal giveaways as well. I personally, have taken pictures of all my Abbi Glines' books. I took a pic of my two paperbacks and a whole bunch of my ebooks from my iPad. I wish I could have made a little video or even added myself to the picture...but I'm sick right now and feel like *ish* so in my eyes I look like ish too. So, yeah, as you can imagine...I didn't really want my sickness plastered on the internet. Maybe when I'm feeling better I'll do some kind of video. I actually always wanted to do a vlog....Hmm...maybe that IS an idea for the future.

*ABBI ROCKS!*

Anyhoo! Back to the point at hand here. ABBI GLINES! She is one FABULOUS AUTHOR that I just hope I get the pleasure of meeting one day. It would be an absolute honor to get her golden autograph on my paperbacks and my author signature scrapbook! That would be fantastic! But, until that day comes, I'll just keep dreaming of it and continue reading her amazing books. Ms. Abbi Glines has such a way with words. She has a beautiful talent for pulling readers right into her books from the very beginning, keeping us there the entire time, and us not wanting to leave when it's over. Her books are that good, they really do keep me so intrigued. 

I wish I already had all my reviews set for these books. I haven't read every single one yet but I have read a bunch. I'll tell you that each book I read so far was 5 STARS though. Wait no, that's not true. Abbi Glines isn't a 5 star writer. Nope. She's not. I can't give her books 5 STARS. It would just be wrong. It wouldn't be honest of me....

....because 5 STARS is an inadequate rating for ABBI GLINES! She needs 10 STARS! Like, seriously! She is just too AMAZEBALLS (yep, I said amazeballs!) for 5 STARS. I have my handful of authors that 5 STARS feels to low for, and Ms. Glines is one of them! Please keep up the good work Abbi! I know we will continue seeing you around the literary world for a long time to come. If you keep writing like you are now, you will have some lifetime fans...Like myself. 

You ROCK ABBI! You truly Rock! I appreciate everything you do! People like you make the world a better place. You make it a better place for me, that's for sure. Books have helped me in my life in sooo many different ways. Nows not the time to get into how much books have helped me, but the point is they have. I just appreciate books so much, and I appreciate all the hard work you authors put into making them. I am in the middle of writing my first book now. It's a New Adult Contemporary Romance novel. It's soo much fun to write, and I'm loving every second of it. But I see how much hard work it is, and it just makes me appreciate authors more than ever. I can only hope that I am half the writer you are, and I know I'll be good. You're just TERRIFIC, AMAZING, FABULOUS, FANTASTIC, MAGNIFICENT, & every other positive word in the world! In fact, here's a little fun thing I just decided to do before we get to the pictures of my books and some of my favorites quotes.


A- is for AMAZING Author, because you are just great at what you do!
B- is for Beautiful, because let's face it. You're beautiful!
B- is for Books, because I love all of your books!
I- is for Intelligent, because you are smart in every way!

G- is for Generous, because we all appreciate your giveaways!
L- is for Literary Genius, because...well, you're books prove it!
I- is for Interesting, because your books are full of interesting ideas!
N- is for Never, because your Fans hope you never give up!
E- is for Entertaining, because your books are so captivating and awesome!
S- is for Sexy, because you have sexy men in all of your books that I love!


Okay, so here are my pictures of the book covers on my iPad and then some favorite quotes besides the pics. These pictures are not in order of favorites, nor are they in order of series. They're scrambled up! The quotes are scrambled up too! Below the quote is the book it came from, but they do not necessarily match up to the picture beside it, nor do they stay in order of series either. I got these quotes from Goodreads because they had most of my favorite quotes right on Abbi's author page. I love checking out the Goodreads Quotes for all my fave books and authors! It's fun! So, check these out below. I had so many favorites because the books are all so awesome, but I had to stop somewhere otherwise I would've been reciting each and every word of every book! That wouldn't be good, LoL!! =D Enjoy!



Pics and Quotes:


“She started walking toward me and perfect white teeth caught her full bottom lip between them. I’d fantasized about those lips way too many times. She’d barely covered up her long tanned legs with a pair of shorts that made me want to go to church this Sunday just to thank God for creating her.” 
― Abbi GlinesThe Vincent Boys


“I know this because I understand now what love really feels like. The kind that consumes you. Love holds the power to break you. It holds the power to complete you.” 
― Abbi GlinesThe Vincent Brothers




“I get to keep you,” he said, staring at me with an
intensity that made me shiver.
“Keep me?” I asked, reaching up to kiss his chin and trail
kisses down his perfect neck.
“Not here. I can’t take much more, Pagan. I’m only so
strong,” he said in a husky voice as he pulled me against his
chest. “You’re mine now. While you walk the Earth you
belong to me. Nothing can hurt you.” I heard a touch of
humor in his voice. “It’s pretty impossible to hurt what Death
protects.” 
― Abbi GlinesExistence


“When I'm with you, my world is complete. When I touch you, I understand the meaning of life. When I lost you, I completely shattered. You. Own. Me.” 
― Abbi GlinesThe Vincent Brothers


“If hearts could shatter, mine just did.” ― Abbi GlinesBreathe 


“Everyone always says that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul has been shattered.” 
― Abbi GlinesFallen Too Far



“I was taking the bad boy off the market for good.” 
― Abbi GlinesWhile It Lasts



“He wasn't what sent me running. He was what had made me want to stay.” ― Abbi GlinesFallen Too Far



“He closed his eyes and let out a jagged breath. "Okay." 
He settled between my legs holding himself over me. "I've never been with a virgin, Eva. I'm going to try real hard not to hurt you."

"Will it hurt you?" I asked, thinking about his pained expression when he'd said I was too tight.
He smiled, "It's going to be the closest to heaven I'll ever get, baby.” 
― Abbi GlinesWhile It Lasts




“I was already headed for Hell, I might as well enjoy the ride.” 
― Abbi GlinesThe Vincent Boys




“Unconditional love is hard to compete with.” 
― Abbi GlinesBecause of Low



“You are not a body. You have a body. You are a soul.” 
― Abbi GlinesExistence


“When you fall for the one that owns you, she’ll be the only one that has the power to make you cry.” 
― Abbi GlinesThe Vincent Brothers


“He seems like a man who knows what he wants, and the problem is he wants what I want.” 
― Abbi GlinesBreathe



You want what you can’t have. I see it in your eyes. The
pain that fills your nights is because of my pack of lies. I’ve
opened up the door for you to walk away. There’s a better
path for you even though I want you to stay. I’ve broken the
rules, I’ve veered from the path but when I met you I knew
to save you was worth the wrath. Let me leave now before
it’s too late. Let me leave now before you know what I am
and your love becomes hate.
” 
― Abbi GlinesExistence



“Hearts don’t realize they’ve been lied to. They still love anyway.” 
― Abbi GlinesJust for Now


“I was very aware that you were a girl, Ash. I was just scared because the one person in the world who knew every secret I'd ever had also happened to be the most beautiful girl I'd ever known. My feelings for you were scary as Hell.” 
― Abbi GlinesThe Vincent Boys



“I perfected the art of being uninteresting.” 
― Abbi GlinesBreathe



“I'm worried that this is too soon. What if you get tired of having me around all the time? What if I eat your Wheaties or leave my makeup out in the bathroom or what if I snore?" 
"I don't eat Wheaties, I hope you leave all your girlie shit laying all over the place so I can see it when you're not there and know you're coming back. And you don't snore. You do this soft purring thing that is so fucking cute I just want to lay awake and listen to you.” 
― Abbi GlinesWhile It Lasts
