Awesome Give Away #2

THIS TIME IT'S A BOOK
a different kind of yummiliciousness

But First-- "drum roll"-- the winner of the tempting and guilt ridden box of chocolates from last week. The totally randomly picked winner is NORMA!

*YEA!!!*

(Now Norma doesn't have to "lick the screen." Her words, not mine.) I'll be in touch.

Let's keep up the giveaway fun by giving away something you'd expect from a blog called Dragon Wrangler. And that would be...

A Book about Dragons
Firelight

or.... if you'd rather

The Replacement
something completely different

One lucky commenter on any of my blogs this week will win their very own copy of one of these books, neither of which I've read yet, but really want to. (I mean-- I really want to.) But you get to pick one.

Descended from dragons, the draki's ability to appear human protects them from hunters. Jacinda lives with her pride in the Cascades, but she chafes under her special status as the only fire-breather in hundreds of years. Recklessly breaking the “no-fly” rule, she attracts hunters; mercifully, one hunter, a beautiful boy who looks upon her with wonder, lets her escape. After this, the pride intends to hobble her rebelliousness, and Jacinda is forced to flee. From Booklist.

“Magnificent and masterful! A world so captivating, you’ll never want to leave!” (Kerrelyn Sparks, New York Times bestselling author)

“Jordan executes a refreshing and exciting tale of forbidden supernatural love and desire. Jacinda is strong and spunky, just like her story. Readers won’t be able to put down this remarkable YA debut. An ethereal series start, Firelight should not be missed.” (Romantic Times Starred Review)

The light paranormals—think vampires, werewolves, angels, faeries, demons—that flood young adult lit often share a similar problem: by merely tweaking established archetypes, they feel largely interchangeable. No such pitfalls bedevil Yovanoff, whose first novel is not only startlingly conceived from the ground up but will still appeal to the legions craving doom, gloom, and, yes, romance. Mackie lives in Gentry, a small town that owes its history of good fortune to an uneasy relationship with the supernatural underground dwellers who protect them. Their price? Merely an annual human sacrifice, which they take in the form of a stolen baby, leaving behind a fragile nonhuman replacement. Mackie is such a replacement, and despite his allergies to iron and blood, he has somehow survived to be a teen—but now is about to meet his makers. From Booklist.

PICK THE ONE YOU WANT
AND COMMENT.

Any comments on any of the blogs this week gets you in the drawing for this. You'll have to tell me which book you want since I have no paranormal talents. (I only write about them.... other people's talents, not mine.)

Don't forget to pop on over to [Bookmom Musings] blog for her giveaway of the week, too. Good luck!

(And just so you know, Bookmom Musing is toying with the idea of doing a second giveaway this week. But for the moment she hasn't decided. If she does, so will I. )

How awesome! Look at all the fun you have going on over here on your blog. I'm certainly going to have to stop by more often!

I need to keep better up to date on blog postings. How did I miss a chocolate giveaway?

I have been looking forward to reading both books so either would be great.

That's a tough choice - both sound interesting... when would I have to make the decision? :)

Haven't made it over here yet - glad I stopped by though. I'll have to poke around for a bit.

Oh - The Replacement sounds seriously freaky! I bet my teenage babysitter would love it! LOL!

The Replacement looks interesting.

Pendragon said...

They both look really good, but I think Firelight is one that I'll enjoy more.
