A Friday Giveaway: A Trio of YA Reads
Thanks to my nefarious bookish connections I have three YA novels to give away—so since I haven’t done a giveaway for a while, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
The three novels are (in alphabetical order by author):
Just in case you haven’t heard of it, here’s a the intro snippet from the back cover:
“Princess Elisa is a disappointment to her people. Although she bears the Godstone in her navel, a sign that she has been chosen for an act of heroism, they view her as lazy, useless and fat…”
*Note: this is a proof copy
And the intro snippet is: “Eight years have passed since the young princess Bitterblue and her country were saved from the vicious King Leck. Now Bitterblue is the Queen of Monsea and her land is at peace…”
Do you reckon it will stay peaceful though? (I reckon you could be right…)
You’ll also recall that I did a very enjoyable interview with Kristin Cashore earlier this year, which you can read here.
Yes, another of Tamora Pierce’s novels in the wonderful Tortall world!
And the snippet is: “Beka Cooper’s life takes an unexpected turn when her fiance is killed on a raid … and in the span of hours she is plunged ito a case that threatens the future of the Tortallan royal family and the Tortallan government itself…”
High stakes stuff inded, but I am sure that Beka, like all of Tamora Pierce’s heroines, will be more than up for it.
To enter the giveaway:
Just comment on this post and/or any other post on the blog before next Friday, 2 November, when I will post the outcome. Basically, your name will be entered in the draw every time you comment on each “distinct” post—plus I’ll add in a bonus entry if I see retweets.
(If you really want to comment on a particular post but don’t want to be in the draw, just put “n.i.d.”—”not in draw”—at the end of your comment.)
That’s it—easy peasy! Now let’s have some fun.:)
1 November Note: I will post the result of the draw at the top of the blog masthead on Friday evening, NZ time, so look for it there, not here. Looking forward to the draw on Friday and thanks for all your comments.
