Just Commonly's 2016 Year-End Faves Ultimate Word Search! + Giveaway

Thank you for dropping by for my 2016 Year End Favorites series these past two weeks! Now that you know ALL my top favorites, here's a little fun ultimate challenge! The ULTIMATE WORD SEARCH of ALL my top favorites of 2016! (You do not need to play to enter the giveaway below.)

Here we go!

(Hint: To make the letters bigger, click on the "Aa" on the top left of the puzzle.) Have fun!



How'd you do? Sorry, no answer key, but I do know they're all in there!


Again, many thanks to the publishers and author, V. Joy Palmer for providing many of the prizes. 




To end, here is the last giveaway: as part of my Year-End Favorites Reads, I'm gifting one winner a box of books that may or may not include the books on my list, but were included in the prizes I received for my blog's Year-End Favorite Reads, courtesy of the publishers and authors that sent me prizes.  


I know you'll miss the fun we had the last 2 weeks, but don't fret, my blog will continue to post reviews, authors spots & interviews as well as special series, and of course GIVEAWAYS! Did you know I have a monthly giveaway that's ongoing? At the end of the month, I choose 1 or more winners to win a prize - a book or anything bookish. You don't have to do anything if you're already following me or commenting on my posts. You're already entered! For more info, head over to my monthly giveaway page (tab at the top of the blog) or click on the image below:


Don't forget these other Top Faves of 2016 and Giveaways!

    
     
    
    

And now, I'm going to take a break with a book, some tea and light a bookish candle! =)

  7. Wow, Annie, you've put so much work into your Year-end favorite lists. My TBR pile is going crazy. I especially liked the historical fiction, contemporary fiction, and laugh out loud ones, but I've read more of the series ones, I think. Thanks for the fun lists and the giveaways.
