I friggin' love book blogging! There aren't many other places that I can talk, rave, and ramble about the books that have me smitten (or annoyed ~ works both ways, I guess). And what's even better...the book blogosphere is a realm where people understand an obsession with books, characters, and just a good story.. So I never need to explain they why's and how's of my addiction to reading.. So refreshing!
I love following new blogs, seeing what others are reading, writing, and thinking.. It's such a wonderful virtual sanctuary :) Not to mention I love seeing the number of my follower
friends go up in that little squared off area for GFC.
I was so excited to wake up this morning and discover that I had reached my 200th follower! So in celebration, I will be hosting a giveaway :)
Much like the last giveaway I held, I want to put this up to a vote to see what you would like to add to your shelf..
Here are the contestants:
There are stories where the girl gets her prince, and they live happily ever after. (This is not one of those stories.)
Jenna Lord’s first sixteen years were not exactly a fairytale. Her father is a controlling psycho and her mother is a drunk. She used to count on her older brother—until he shipped off to Afghanistan. And then, of course, there was the time she almost died in a fire.
There are stories where the monster gets the girl, and we all shed tears for his innocent victim. (This is not one of those stories either.)
Mitch Anderson is many things: A dedicated teacher and coach. A caring husband. A man with a certain... magnetism.
And there are stories where it’s hard to be sure who’s a prince and who’s a monster, who is a victim and who should live happily ever after. (These are the most interesting stories of all.)
Drowning Instinct is a novel of pain, deception, desperation, and love against the odds—and the rules.
Something wicked this way comes...
She thought she’d be safe in the country, but you can’t escape your own nightmares, and Lis London dreams repeatedly that someone is trying to kill her. Lis thinks she’s being paranoid - after all who would want to murder her? She doesn’t believe in the local legends of witchcraft. She doesn’t believe that anything bad will really happen to her. You never do, do you? Not until you’re alone in the woods, after dark - and a twig snaps... Hollow Pike - where witchcraft never sleeps.
AND last, but definitely not least.... (my current read, and lemme tell you, so far, it's awesomeness exceeds all expectations I had...)
A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.
High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.
But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.
SO, whattaya think? Three very different books (all *stand alone* by the way) to choose from.. Cast your vote!!
