Now that the joys of Christmas and the sparkle of a New Year have dulled, we have entered the heart of winter…and flu season. As I currently type this, I am curled up on my couch, littered with Kleenex and cough drop wrappings. Sounds like a glamorous Instagram moment, right?
Alas, I shall persevere. In better news: I come baring gifts!!
Fate has shined down on me: I have an extra signed copy of The Immortalists by debut author Chloe Benjamin! This book just came out at the beginning of this month, yet has already gotten tons of buzz and positive reviews (it’s also on the NYT Bestseller List).
In celebration, I decided to host a giveaway! Here are the rules:

PS: here’s a quick synopsis of the book via Goodreads:
“If you were told the date of your death, how would it shape your present?
It’s 1969 in New York City’s Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children—four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness—sneak out to hear their fortunes.
Their prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden-boy Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in ’80s San Francisco; dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician, obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; eldest son Daniel seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11, hoping to control fate; and bookish Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality.”
