Happy Birthday Cover Madness Giveaway!

Posted by

February is clearly one of the most awesome months of the year because guess what? Both of us are celebrating a birthday this month! Only 11 days apart! So since that is way too awesome to not share, we decided to throw another of our famous Cover Madness giveaways! But first! Since we’re both getting old and all (one more than the other but we won’t point fingers >.<), let’s reminisce on the good old times as young’uns! Let’s see if you can guess who is who! πŸ˜‰


I grew up in the 90’s and 00’s (is that right?) I can remember vividly dancing in my room to Britney Spears and even singing on my Spice Girls branded microphone (the neighbours thought my parents killed cats for a living.) The sound of dial up internet still haunts my dreams and my favourite thing to do was play the very first Resident Evil game on my playstation 1. I also had a very unhealthy relationship with my posters of wrestlers (I was a HUGE WWF fan, you know.. before it was WWE.)


Growing up in the 80s and 90s, I was an unfortunate victim of the mushroom cut, bad fashion choices, and the Backstreet Boys – who are still awesome, by the way! My childhood also consisted of radio bingo, Super Mario Brothers – and get this: No internet! *Le gasp*. I got my first computer when I was 16 years old and found myself pretty much alone in the online world chatting on ICQ with strangers and playing around on Excite Chat (which is not for “adults only”, you dirty minded people! It’s actually where I first learned to use Photoshop!).

What’s up for grabs:

Two winnes will have their pick from the new covers below:

    Happy Birthday you too! I knew the second one was Giselle was soon as she said “le gasp” but you two were so cute as children! I was such a she devil a few years ago and had that annoying cut that went to my ears up until sixth grade O_O talk about an awkward stage. But hey I grew up in the 90s too! Half a year of my life was during then πŸ˜‰ I can’t get over your pictures though you guys are adorable. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN TO GISELLE AND JENNI!

  2. Rashika

    I am *pretty* sure Giselle is the second one and Jenni the first. Both of you guys were such ADORABLE kiddos!!!

    On an unrelated note… Dial-Up internet no longer haunts my dreams… but I’d cry if I ever had to use it again. *shudders*
    HAVE A BLAST ON YOUR B’DAYS GUYS and eat tons of cake (chocolate preferably? :P)!!

  3. Jenea @ Books Live Forever

    Happy Birthday Month!!! You both were such adorable kids. πŸ™‚ I think I was 18 when I got my first cellphone, and it didn’t do anything but make calls, no texting or internet. My kids laughed when I told about it, and told me they were sorry I had to grow up like that. lol Hope you both have wonderful Birthdays.

  4. Kelsey

    Happy Birthday you guys! What are the birthday dates? Mine’s on the 5th, yay!
    I’m guessing Jenni is the first set of pics, and Giselle the second? I’m not always good at guessing these things lol.
    Thank you for the giveaway too!

  5. Lolita

    Congrats to both of you! I hope you have a great birthday! And thanks for the giveaway!
    I really can’t guess who’s who, so difficult! Especially because neither of you have actually blond hair now.

  6. SweetMarie83

    I was pretty sure I could guess based on the pics, plus I was sure Giselle and I are about the same age, so the ‘growing up in the 80s and 90s thing’ tipped me off more. Our childhoods sound VERY similar, Giselle! Happy birthday girls, I hope you both have fantastic, special days, and thanks for celebrating with us!

  7. Shayna Varadeaux

    Jenni’s pic 1 and Giselle pic 2! Happy Birthday ladies I just wanna say you have an awesome blog and I take your advice on books as THE word! Thanks for all you do and the overall awesomeness of Xpresso Books!

  8. Amanda @ Book Badger

    I have to say, those pictures in the beginning and the humour in each description made the entire post! They were fantastic! πŸ˜€ Some great choices of prizes there too, I would adore They All Fall Down!

  9. Melanie (YA Midnight Reads)

    *cough* Sorry but September is CLEARLY the best. But you two look so freaking adorable back then! (Not so much now. I KID I KID :P) but…HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU TWO! I HOPE YOU LADIES HAVE FABULOUS B’DAYS *sends virtual chocolate fudge cake*

  10. Siiri

    Happy birthday, you two! Well, soonish birthday πŸ™‚ Heh. I hope they’re full of all things wonderful and don’t forget to let your hair down:) The baby pictures are extremely cute! Oh, and Jenni, your little girl looks exactly like you. Fallen from her mom’s mouth (at least that’s what Estonians say when the kids look/behave exactly like their parents) πŸ˜€ Happy birthday, girls! *hugs*

  11. Henrietta

    Happy Birthday, ladies!! The pictures are adorable – thanks for sharing your happiness with all of us. Enjoy a great month celebrating. πŸ˜€

  12. Wendy Darling

    Happy birthday, ladies! I am scared of your giveaway so I’m not gonna enter it, but it’s awfully generous of you considering it’s YOUR big day and all. I feel like readers should be sending bloggers presents to celebrate their big milestones. πŸ˜‰

  13. Alice

    Feliz CumpleaΓ±os!!!!! -> Happy Birthday!!
    to Jenni today! and of course to Giselle in your birthday!
    a hug and best wishes to both!:)

  14. Jasprit

    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway ladies! I love how at the beginning of the post you looked back at your life when you were younger! I was definitely a huge fan of WWF and The Backstreet Boys when I was younger, my cousin used to continually put me though wrestling moves whenever he felt like it! And Happy belated birthday to you both!
