BEA Giveaway #3

I had another fun and stressful and awesome day at BEA. It's not even over and I'm feeling ready to drop. Even the tops of my feet hurt.

If you aren't here or didn't have a chance to pick up anything awesome, here's what you can win:

Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young: I think this is like a Sliding Doors for teens. It's about a girl who faces a choice on fateful Friday night: stay by her dying grandmother's bedside for what might be her final hours (like she has been for days) or go to a party with her best friend and live her life. The book examines the two distinct ways for her fate to unfold.

Parasite by Mira Grant: In the future genetically engineered tapeworm has prevented sickness and disease. Almost everyone has one living within them. Only these parasites are restless. They want their own lives and will do anything to get them.

The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence: Alex Woods was struck by a meteorite, bullied by his peers, and befriended by a curmudgeonly widower. Now, 17, he's stopped at Dover customs with 113 grams of marijuana, an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat, and an entire nation in uproar. And he's fairly sure he's done the right thing...

The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima: Universes collide, intrigues abound, and familiar faces return in this brilliant new chapter in the beloved and best-selling Heir Chronicles series.

BEA Giveaway #2

If you're not at BEA or you didn't get to grab these books, here's your chance to have them anyway. I'll even ship them to you. BEA presents without having to fight for them!

The day isn't even over yet, and I already have grabbed so many great things to read. Here are the ones I'm giving away:

Cherry Money Baby by John M Cusick: Hollywood glitz collides with working-class aspirations in this satirical tale of an impulsive starlet and a sharp-witted small-town teen.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: This is the follow up to the fabulous Eleanor & Park (which is on top of my TBR list!). It's a coming of age tale about fanfiction, family, and first love.

Splintered by AG Howard with a special teaser of Unhinged: This reimagining of Alice in Wonderland is a fabulous book--and I'm excited for the sequel!

Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman: This book is signed! It's a hilarious new story from Neil Gaiman and illustrator Skottie Young.

The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen: This is for all of us New Adult fans. It's the paperback edition of the bestselling contemporary romance.

If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan: This is the book I think I'm most excited about after today's BEA. It's a debut about a seventeen year old girl in love with her female best friend in Iran.

Enter now through Sunday!

BEA Giveaway #1

Today I went to Editor's Buzz Panel and managed the grab five books that I'm going to offer up to anyone who wasn't able to be there!

All Joy and No Fun by Jennifer Senior: this "parenthood" book stemmed from an article which appeared in New York Magazine. It was titled "I love my kids, I hate my life." Told with the same humor and insight, this narrative work of non-fiction is explores the frustrations and the joys of modern parenting. [no cover image]

Knocking on Heaven's Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death by Katy Butler: An exquisitely written, expertly reported memoir and exposé of modern medicine that leads the way to more humane, less invasive end-of-life care—based on the author’s acclaimed New York Times Magazine piece. This is the story of one daughter’s struggle to allow her parents the peaceful, natural deaths they wanted—and to investigate the larger forces in medicine that stood in the way.

The Affairs of Others by Amy Grace Loyd: This mesmerizing debut novel about a young woman, haunted by loss, who rediscovers passion and possibility when she’s drawn into the tangled lives of her neighbors.

The Facades by Eric Lundgren: Along the streets of the once-great Midwestern city of Trude, the ornate old buildings lie in ruin. Shrouded in disappointment andnostalgia, Trude has become a place to “lose yourself,” as one tourist brochure puts it: a treacherous maze of convoluted shopping malls, barricaded libraries, and elitist assisted-living homes. One night at Trude’s opera house, the theater’s most celebrated mezzo-soprano vanishes during rehearsal. When police come up empty-handed, the star’s husband, a disconsolate legal clerk named Sven Norberg, must take up the quest on his own.

Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields by Wendy Lower: This stunning account of the role of German women on the Nazi eastern front--not only as plunderers and direct witnesses, but as actual killers--powerfully revises history. Many young nurses, teachers, secretaries, and wives saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of "wild east" of opportunity--and yet could not have imagined what they would do there.

And that's it.

These five books. One winner. You have until Saturday night to enter!
