Epic Swag Giveaway!


This giveaway is now over.

Hey guys! I'm having an awesome giveaway! I have over 90 pieces of swag to give away from 6 different authors, 8 different series, and the best part: 21 winners! Why 21, you ask??


That's right, it's my birthday! My 21st birthday on December 6th, to be exact ;) (Man, I'm getting old!) So to celebrate my birthday and all the upcoming Holidays, I'm going to have this epic giveaway! 21 winners, and each winner will receive 5 different pieces of swag. Well, what are you offering, you ask?


([# I have to give away] book/series and author)

[2] Croak by Gina Damico
[9] Oppression by Jessica Therrien (some signed)
[5] The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting (some signed)
[3] The Pledge series by Kimberly Derting (some signed)

[18] Entangled by Nikki Jefford (all signed) {who along with her cover designer made my b-day button!}
[18] The Blood Coven Vampires series by Mari Mancusi

Pretty good selection, if I do say so myself ;) We've got reapers, Greek mythology, Norse mythology, crazy-cool supernatural abilities, dystopian-ness, vampires and vampire hunters, witches and magic, and all around awesomeness! And they're not all bookmarks! I've got some stickers (The Bod Finder and The Pledge series), postcards (Oppression), and even a magnet (Croak)! Oh, and all the Aurora Sky swag...yeah, they're door hangers! How freakin' cool is that??

Okay, this time around we're going to try something different...a Google Doc! In it, I want you to put the books/series on a scale of 1 to 8 (1 being the one you want the most and 8 being the one you want least) So for every drop-down question there should be a different book listed as an answer, 'kay? This will just help me decide what to send when the winners are chosen :)

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (#15)


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey.


This past week I finished reading:

 


Right now I'm reading:


Okay, I actually put this one aside for now...it's not that its not good, because it's AMAZING! It's just that I don't want it to end, lol! But I will finish this one soon since I'm kinda borrowing it from the library and it's kinda overdue ;)


And up next, I have decided on:


I just don't know when I'll be starting it. This week I have one unit exam and one quiz; next week I have one final exam and another unit exam; and the week after I have my last final exam....yep that's 3 weeks of exams! Gods, just thinking about it give me goosebumps. I should probably go study, huh? ;) lol


What are you reading this week??

Freebie: Between the Land and the Sea (Marina's Tales #1) by Derrolyn Anderson

Hey guys! I have a free e-book for you! All you have to do is go to Smashwords and download whatever book format you'd like...no coupon required! How awesome is that?

Here is a little blurb about the book:

From Goodreads:

Something extraordinary is lurking in the deep ocean waters off the coast of Aptos, California. Just a few weeks after moving to the beach town, sixteen year old Marina has nearly drowned twice, enchanted the hottest guy in high school, and discovered a supernatural creature. If she can only manage to survive her dangerous encounters with unpredictable mermaids, she might just be able to uncover the mystery of her past and learn how to appease the mysterious forces that seem to want something from her... and maybe even find true love along the way.

I seriously recommend this book! It is such a creative take on mermaids...you cannot pass the opportunity to read this book for free. So go on, get it! :) This offer will only be good through the holidays!

Bought:


I LOVE LOVE LOVE My Fair Godmother! I borrowed the book from the library and I thought it was such a fun read, I decided I should buy it altogether! Awesome read! And Scary School sounds like a fun read too! It's a children's/middle grade novel, but I really like those. I mainly bought it for my 8-year-old twin brothers, but it sounds like something I might like too :)

Shieka @ Doctor's Notes gifted me Nightshifted, and I just love her for that! I saw this book on her last Showcase Sunday post, and let me tell you, I was SO excited when I found this book....monsters and nursing? Hell yeah! So thank you Shieka for the awesome gift! As for The New Boy, I have been a fan of R.L. Stine and his Fear Street series since I was in middle school! I love this series! The novels are short, very entertaining, and horror! Love it!

Coming Soon - Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford


Looking for a new vampire book to read? Check out this one!

Her blood is toxic to vampires.

If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it’s to get off the iceberg she calls home. Being kissed before she graduates wouldn’t hurt either.

Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Secret agents step in and save Aurora’s life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter. In Alaska.

Basically she’s a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job… by hand.

Aurora is alienating friends at school while attracting attention from the last person she wants noticing her – the dark prince of temptation himself: Fane Donado. And that can’t lead to anything good.

Still not convinced? Take a look at this (awesome) book trailer:



Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter is set to be released November 27, 2012 (release date subject to change).

Sound like something you would like to read?
