Friday the 13th Blog Hop

The rare... the one-n-only... FRIDAY THE 13th!!!!




Hosted by:




This is a very fun, very not-so-superstitious wee little Giveaway hop promising to be FUN & WINNABLE and all things delightful.

I am going to offer a book with a haunting cover for this giveaway. There's an entire list on Goodreads HERE and HERE - and I'm willing to negotiate. A "how to" book will not qualify unless it's how to stitch up a wound or something. Maybe "how to" make a sword from a hand-stoked kiln. Maybe. 

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)Beautiful covers are warring with each other about who can be the most amazing (yay!). I couldn't believe this cover... and it gives me the creeps every time I see it, but it's getting great reviews: The Immortal Rules.  *shudder*


Here's some more ideas right off my own TBR List (click the cover to go to Goodreads & check out the book!):

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1) Hereafter (Hereafter, #1) The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) The Host (The Host, #1) Before I Fall

I suppose I would bend a little to give away a haunting book. The Monstrumologist definitely counts. Or The 19th Wife - did anyone seen Book Journey's review Thursday?! (it may not look scary, but it's got multiple wives and murder!!)

So... pick a book. Once you got the one you want in mind... and you can receive it either in the mail from The Book Depository or via e-copy... make sure yer at least 13... and fill out the Rafflecopter!!

All my giveaway rules are listed under About Me. They clarify how no one is at fault in case of mishap related to my desire to give away a free book, but feel free to read it for yourself to make sure.

WAIT!!!

I have to ask a question.

This isn't entirely spooky, but...

What's the best book you've read recently? 
(like in the last 2-4 weeks) 
I shouldn't add to my TBR pile, but I'm totally curious.

I just finished Grave Mercy and I couldn't believe how much I liked it. I gave it 5 Stars and I NEVER do that!!!

And then I read Of Poseidon and emailed the author 'cause she didn't finish the book (apparently) and she wrote me back about snorting slushies & hot dogs. (Wha?!  - that's what I said!)  I'll post her reply with my review. SOON!

  4. Wait, Hod Dogs? Why? What, did you tell her the book was like a fast-street-food-meal or something?

    I finished Everneath! -finally!! & I DID enojoy it, (why, Jack? NOOO!) Wait for my sort-of review, I'll write it in AP class, jajaja.
    & Following the Mythological line of thinking I went with Half-Blood & Pure by Jennifer L. Armanteut. [Holy Crap], I liked it~ Seriously, having to wait, like 7 month for my B*day & the next book in the series is too much.

    I'm all about Middle Grade at the moment, and want to spread the word about Adele Griffin's wonderful Vampire Island trilogy. I've been recommending it to all my friends who have pre-teen daughters because it's so funny, quirky and well-written. Griffin sends up a lot of conventions of "vampire books." For instance, in this book, when one of the main characters does something dark, regression into vampirism is not the cause, but the effect.

    Another great recent read was Suzanne Collins's Catching Fire--but I'm sure you've already tried that! (I'm usually late to these big parties.)

    Thanks a lot for the giveaway. =)
