Feature & Follow: Celebrating 100!

So I just jumped on the bandwagon with this one about a few weeks ago, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Parajunkee's and Alison Can Read's meme dubbed Feature and Follow will be celebrating it's 100th week. If only we could all live that long.

In honor of turning 100, this week's Feature & Follow will be a little different and way more fun. See, this time, there will be a fountain of giveaways by those participating (held from June 7th-June 13th), and what's more, each avid bookie that comes aboard will be featuring another fellow blogger. So recognition and prizes. Didn't I say this would be fun?

So as a newly loyal participant, I guess I will start off with my feature, aka my favorite, not that I pick favorites or anything. The first time I read her blog, I nearly peed myself. No exaggeration. It was just that funny. I wish I could have gotten a hold of her to ask her the traditional feature questions, but I guess a mention and a little gushing will have to do.
Seriously, check out The Bawdy Book Blog. Always interesting, always a laugh. I promise.

So now that you've checked out another awesome blog, you're probably wondering about those giveaways that I mentioned. Well, there will only be one giveaway here, but you can check out the links by visiting Parajunkee and Alison Can Read or by scrolling down a little further for more features and giveaways. The more you enter, the better chance you have at winning ~ free ~ books.

So here at Realms of an Open Mind, the giveaway will include a softcover copy of The Mayfair Moon by J.A. Redmerski. Why did I pick this particular book? One, it has werewolves. Two, I love the cover. Three, it's based in Hallowell, Maine (a stone's throw from me, and from what I've seen, Maine can be as creepy as it gets). Four, I love the writer's blog (which can be visited ----> here). Have I read it yet? In the process... My thoughts most of the time consist of four words: Didn't see that coming. Frickin' awesome, creepy, and mysterious.. Official review coming soon.

After a nightmarish encounter with a werewolf, seventeen-year-old Adria Dawson loses her sister, but gains the love of a mysterious young man and his legendary family.

Strange and tragic things begin to happen in the small town of Hallowell, Maine: residents come down with an unexplainable ‘illness’ and some disappear. In the midst of everything, Isaac Mayfair is adamant about keeping Adria safe, even from her sister whom he has warned her to stay away from.

As unspeakable secrets unfold all around Adria, impossible choices become hers to bear. Ultimately, no matter what path she takes, her life and the lives of those she loves will be in peril. As she learns about the werewolf world she also learns why her place in it will change the destinies of many.

Yup. I knew you'd want it. So enter here (I hate conditions, but I have no choice ~ U.S. shipping only please my dears):

  2. Hi i entered in giveaway, but wanted to suggest some books you may like, if you have not already read them, (has werewolves, lol) Bitten (women fo the otherwold series) its the first of the series by Kelly Armstrong, and Stolen is #2 about the same werewolves, and then there is many more, some go to other supernatural characters, but they all are connected. I really enjoy them alot. and Men of the Otherworld is about the male side of these same werewolves, a prequel to Bitten i guess. Just wanted to mention them, in case you had not read them. :)
