Summer Reads Giveaway Hop



You have two difficult choices before you. The first I will make easier by providing choices. The second is all on you. If you don't feel up to the challenge... hop along to another giveaway.

NO WAIT!! Have a seat...  Really, you're welcome here, of course!  I was just being dramatic.

Ok, ready?

First choice... Which beach do you want to take your winning book to?  Don't just pick the sunny one, pick the one that will add to your book in multiple delicious ways!!  It might be easier if you make the second choice first... Which book do you want to bring?

Before you choose... think about this. Your book needs to be fast-paced 'cause the rhythm of the waves on the shore will lull you into a dreamy state of near-unconsciousness. This is not the time to experience Jane Eyre for the first time finally. This is the time to check out those books rated "Couldn't put it down"! One of those books you swallow all at once. Let the experience of your virtual beach flavor the book in your memory forever!!

Too dramatic?  Huh. Is there such a thing?!

Choose carefully... where are you (virtually) taking your book?

1. The Beach of Thundering Waves


2. The Rocky Beaches of the Stormy Islands
Isle of Skye


3. The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters
.

4. The Shores of Tropical Seclusion


5. The Hidden Cove


6. The Far-Seeing Cliffs of Longing
beach beach beach beach

7. The Pier of Peace

*speechless*

I found these gorgeous pix on Pinterest!!

Available to WIN is a book that will keep you riveted even while you recline in luxury sippin' a delicious bottomless ice tea.

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)  The Knife of Never Letting Go  Obsidian (Lux, #1)  Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)  City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)  The Angel Experiment (Maximum Ride, #1)

This is not an exclusive list of exciting reads, obviously... if you a specific book in mind (and who doesn't?!) we can choose the most exciting out of your Wishlist, ok?  "How to embroider" will not count, though. Sorry!!  (I like to embroider, maybe, so nothin' against skilled embroiderists. "How to" books are for a different day, though. *ahem*)

This is an International Giveaway for anyone able to receive from The Book Depository. You must be least 13 or older. See my giveaway rules under About Me.

Which beach are you choosing?

  1. I want to go to the Isle of Ever-Morning. It looks beautiful, almost magical because of that sunset! How awesome would it be to read there?

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. I want to take Bloodlines to The Undiscovered Oasis! :D

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. "The Hidden Cove" looks so appropriated. Jajaja, reminds me of Espiritu Santo Island, in BCS... Ooh, talking about it, if I can 'decline' those books suggestions, can I decline the beach too?

    'Cause there is nothing I'd love more than a terrace with view to the sea in La Paz! With Pin*a Colada(!!) *yomy*

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm... I think "declining" requires a pic!! You have a pic to share of your terrace?!?! Do share!!! :-D

      Delete
    2. Hey, I haven't been in La Paz since... a LONG while. I used to have a beautiful shoot of a beach named El Sargento, displaying also my beautiful thumb, jeje. Anyway, someone took it...

      Amm... what if a describe it to you?

      Delete
    3. Ok!! Are you describing the shot WITH the thumb or WITHOUT?

      Delete
    4. WITH, of course! The artistic-ly part of the photo would be LOST if I didn't include the thumb.

      Delete
  4. The Forgotten Mermaid Alcove because I like mermaids and I think of fantasy and danger when it comes to them..

    I'd choose City of Bones... or something not on the list, either Maze Runner or Last Breath by Rachel Caine

    ReplyDelete
  5. The Rocky Beaches...looks mysterious. I think I would take Obsidian because that is the color of some of the rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would choose the The Peaceful Pier because it looks so gorgeous and I love the color of the water and the pier, the book I would pick would be Obsidian because I am dying to read it. Thank so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  7. The shores of tropical seclusion. I could take some mean photos there. It looks amazing! *sigh* now I'm completely jealous!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Tropical seclusion looks like it has good hiking as well as good beach-iness. Also, caves of mist, but not with a book, because then it would get all soggy.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The Hidden Cove! Because it looks so pretty. *A*

    ReplyDelete
  10. The Rocky Beaches of the Stormy Islands...there's just something mysterious about it...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Caves of mist would be neat, I am not a sands and beach kind of person, and have to stay out of the sun (no I am not a vampire, close though) lol, i have a skin condition, most of me is albino white, and i burn in 2 minutes, blister in 10-15, its not pretty, lol, so shade and indoors for me, lucky I live in the rainforest of Washington, less sun here. lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ya!! The caves for you, sounds like!!

      Although... it's all "virtual" so you could go anywhere and not get burnt unless you wanted. Just sayin'.

      Delete
  12. I want to go to the highlands of abundant waters. :) It reminds me of when I visited the Aran Islands off the coast of Ireland, and it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen - I'd love to go back! And I'd love to read Obsidian there. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think that is my favorite for reading... the grass looks comfy and the view is so HUGE and the waterfall would break up the wave sounds so they wouldn't be quite so lulling. I don't need much encouragement to nap!!

      Delete
  13. The Pier of Peace! The scene looks calm and fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm totally wanting to take the Knife of Never Letting Go to the beach of a Thousand Waves. I mean it would make this totally cool background sound for the book! It's either that or taking Obsidian to The Caves of the Morning Mists because they just...well fit! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'd go to no. 8, the Undiscovered Oasis, because I like the tranquil feeling it conveys. It's not your average sandy beach kind of, well, beach, and I like that!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think I'm going to the undiscovered oasis!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The Caves of Morning Mists is absolutely stunning! I'd love to go there :) I'd take Obsidian or City of Bones with me there.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh my they all look gorgeous but I think I'll pick The Hidden Cove. It looks so cozy in the summer :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. maybe i would choose : The Undiscovered Oasis cozvery beautiful...i love it..

    thanks for the chance..^^

    ReplyDelete
  20. Probably The Hidden Cove, because it looks like it's sunny there, and I could read in peace! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think I would choose the Pier of Peace, cause that's kinda my thing. Me, reading my book peacefully till sunset would be my most relaxing vacation ever. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Pier of Peace ... Looks so comfortable... Calmy.. and Lonely.. I can't concentrate with My book... xD

    Thank's for the Giveaway... ^^

    ReplyDelete
  23. shores of tropical seclusion! i love the feeling of isolation, soaking all the beauty of nature.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ooooh.. I'd take Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves by Matthew Reilly to the Beach of Thundering Waves. Matthew's specialty is fast-paced, action extravaganzas, and I think the thundering roar of those stunning waves crashing down would provide the perfect soundtrack.

    I love the concept for the giveway, thanks for the chance :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'd take Belles by Jen Calonita to the Hidden Cove - I like contemp even if it isn't action-packed and I think the Hidden Cove looks like a beautiful Southern hidden beach:)

    Thanks so much:)

  30. Definitely the Caves of the Morning Mists. Perfect location to admire the scenery and relax with a book!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would go to The Hidden Cove because it looks so peaceful and I would bring, hmm... hard one. If Girl of Nightmares was out, I would bring that, but since it isn't... Of Poseidon. What better place to read a mermaid book than at the beach? :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. The Hidden Cove. No one would find me, and I could read all day long. :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Number 6 - The Far-Seeing Cliffs of Longing because it is fascinating!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters is my choice of beaches. I would want to take Obsidian there too because I haven't read those books yet and everyone keeps talking about them. Seems like a perfect time to try a new place and a new adventure. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

    Probably 8 though. I wanna say it's beautiful so that's why I pick it, but they all are...;) 6 would be awesome too!

    ReplyDelete
  43. OMG! Those pictures are all breathtaking...I would choose all of them if I could! But I would have to say The #8 Undiscovered Oasis is my favorite :-D It just looks so peaceful and that water is so so clear <3 Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters

    Look at the blue water <3 and the beach. But I'd pick some more if I could! All so peaceful and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Number 5, The Hidden Cove. I need some peace and quiet and a place to relax. Oh, and I'd take Obsidian with me.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would like the Hidden Cove because it is quiet and would be relaxing and beautiful suroundings.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a hard question! I'd go to either The Pier of Peace or The Undiscovered Oasis. Both look serene and beautiful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would love to visit The Highlands of Abundant Waters, and read A Clash of Kings (G.R.R.Martin) there. Such a bliss... *sighs*

    ReplyDelete
  55. The Pier of Peace because after a hectic year at school, I just want to get away to somewhere quiet and just relax.

    ReplyDelete
  62. The rocky shores of stormy isle because the setting appeals to me. It's calm and peaceful but also touched with mystery and depth. I would take on of my black dagger brotherhood books with me cause it would be a nice balance.

    ReplyDelete
  63. The Pier of Peace, it seems so the perfect place to read and forget all of your problems, you know? Oh and i would take Bloodlines with me (:

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hard to choose! But my first choice would be The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters, because the water looks like you can actually swim in there.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'd take take One Night that Changes Everything by Lauren Barnholdt to The Hidden Cove. It looks serene.

  66. I'm going with #11, the mermaid alcove. Why, you ask? Well, because it looks out of the way and hidden and I doubt my children could find me there. Yep, I'm that desperate for some peace and quiet :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. I had to laugh. Too much summer vacation already, hey? (I'm with you. Let's get outa here!)

  67. The Hidden Cove. It looks perfect. And although I already read Obsidian, that is a place that simply calls for some Daemon and Katy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I really like The Forgotten Mermaid Alcove. It looks like the perfect hidey hole to read and get away from everyone. Thanks for the giveaway! :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  71. The Undiscovered Oasis
    It looks so stunning. I can imagine swimming through the crystal clear waters.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I would take Bloodlines to The Hidden Cove because it looks like the ideal place to find some peace and quiet where no one would disturb you and the view is just stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would take Bitterblue or Pandemonium to The Highlands for two reasons: first, it's beautiful in an unconventional way for beaches. Second, since it's the highlands somewhere, there are sure to be Scottish men around and I'm a sucker for an accent. :D

    Happy Summer!

  78. I like The Hidden Cove. A nice small beach and just the right mix of clear water, a little cave, and some rocks to climb up on when the tide comes in. There's probably a nice little spot to camp up there to.

    ReplyDelete
  79. The Caves of Morning Mists there is a spooky sort of feel to it and I like that :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think I'd take Obsidian to the Undiscovered Oasis. It looks calm, peaceful, not too hot, and very private and quiet.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I would take my book to the The Isle of Ever-Morning, it looks it would be quite atmospheric- and more importantly, cooler than it is here!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I would choose 5. The Hidden Cove because it reminds me of the beach I went to each summer in Northern California when I was a child and also because it looks like a nice private uninterrupted place to read.

    Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'd choose number 10 because the Scottish Highlands are my fave place! I'd probably pick Obsidian because I've been looking forward to reading that one.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I choose 4..... and 6, 7, and 9-12. Because they are all breathtaking. I can see myself finding a nice littel nook in any of those places and reading my heart out. I am not sure which book I would choose yet. I will have to choose wisely though because it will have a ways to go to hit all of those spots and will probably have to be read through twice. Thanks for the giveaway. And the amazing pictures.

  100. The hidden cove seems perfect for me and for the book, bloodlines or city of bones (§ not sure which one yet) the paceful atmosphere, the sun to protect me, the clear water i've never went to a beach like that so i would love it

    ReplyDelete
  101. The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters because it's so beautiful and looks peaceful.
    kathyross75@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  102. The Undiscovered Oasis, because it's so beautiful, I want to stare at it all day & probably won't read at all, because I won't be able to take my eyes of the view, but I'll try to do that with Obsidian ;)

    ReplyDelete
  103. I would choose The Hidden Cove because of the beautiful blue of the ocean and how secluded it is. I would have plenty of peace to sit back and read. :D

  104. I can't resist the hidden cove, I would definitely choose to read there!

  107. I'd love to go to The Forgotten Mermaid Alcove because it looks so magical!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Thanks for the giveaway! How amazing do those beaches look? They don't even look real to me. I'd love to go to "The Undiscovered Oasis." If I have to take a few of my fictional boyfriends or Ian Somerhalder with me, so be it, lol. In all seriousness, we have some amazing sort of "hidden" beaches within a 45-minute drive outside of my town, so a lot of them are like little a sort of undiscovered oasis of sorts.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Fun!!!

    Oh man, that's tough. I think I'd choose The Hidden Cove, and I'd probably choose Obsidian!

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Well, I live in Hawaii, so I can basically walk in any direction and end up with a nice beach--though I do have some preferences =).

    But the The Far-Seeing Cliffs of Longing and Pier of Peace looks so gorgeous! I would just love to sit on the stairs/pier with a good book--then there's an issue of dropping the book into the water accidently...

    ReplyDelete
  117. 9. The Caves of Morning Mists

    The colors are gorgeous and the mist rolling off the rocks gives it such a mysterious air that it would be perfect to lose one's self in the perfect book.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I'd choose The Pier of Peace, I love the stillness of the water and if I'm by myself then it'd be the heaven of reading. I would carry The Knife of Never Letting Go, I'm waiting on that book to arrive and I'm so excited to read it. Thanks for the giveaway. :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. I'd go to the Isle of Ever-Morning, because I love the name and it sounds like a cool place. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I'd go to The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters. Do I need to say why? Look at that place, it's so beautiful and blue! I'd take Obsidian since everyone loves it!

    Thanks for the giveaway! =)

    ReplyDelete
  121. I'd love to go to the Shores of Tropical Seclusion, or the Hidden Cove. Maybe even the Mermaid Alcove. I know that they aren't as colorful as the others but despite the fact that I am a very social being, I see those as the most perfect places to be with a book...the waves gently lolling at your feet, your toes digging into the grainy sand and self-exfoliating, and the quiet calming your nerves. It would be, might I add, an almost PERFECT place to WRITE as well, which is what makes it MOST appealing to me...the fact that I find the seclusion and quite suitable to both reading AND writing! :D

    Thank you for being part of the "Summer Reads Giveaway Hop" - for your generosity, may your days be warm & bright all year round. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity! :D

    1. Ah!! YES!! I am so much more particular about my writing atmosphere vs. my reading atmosphere... and these beaches would be PERFECT to write at!!

      exfoliating toes in the water sounds nice, too... warm water, mind you.

  122. Definitely the Isle of Ever-Morning.
    Not only does it look gorgeous, but the sky was all purple and there were people running everywhere. Oh shoot, I had a Prince flashback.
    Seriously- it looks secluded and mysterious- so it sounds like a good place to hunker down with a book.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Wow, I would love to visit ALL of those beaches! If I could go to just one, I'd choose #5: The Hidden Cove. It looks so uninhabited, peaceful, and inviting...a perfect escape! I'll bet that Obsidian could keep me riveted!

    ReplyDelete
  124. They all look amazing! I'd probably visit The Hidden Cove, because it's a bit secluded, and the perfect place to settle down and read!

    ReplyDelete
  125. #1 looks like the one I'd most like to visit! But all of them are on the list to visit someday!

  127. Definitely the Beach of Thundering Waves! Love the look of it - reminds me of beaches along the east coast that I grew up going to. Now I'm on the west coast of Florida, and even though I am only a mile from the beach -- it is a beach of calm waters. Too calm. lol I miss the waves!

    I'd want to read City of Bones there. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  128. How about a beach in South Africa! I've always wanted to go there! OR, a beach in Ireland! 2 places I'd LOVE to go someday!

  136. The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters or The Hidden Cove!
    I love crystal clear water because I hate not to know what brushes against my legs in the water and I want the hidden cove well because it's hidden.

  137. OMG so beautiful D: I think I'm gonna choose The Hidden Cove, it has the beauty and privacy! :D But really I love beaches so much I'd enjoy any clean beaches.

  138. I would like to go to the rocky beaches of the Scottish Highlands, particularly Red Point beach in the Wester Ross area. Because I am of Scottish decent and my ancestors lived in the area.

  139. I want to go to The Rocky Beaches of the Stormy Islands. Look at these smooth expanses of stone, perfect to sit on, lie down, relax for a good read, and no sand since it's stone, nothing stuck between your toes and the pages of your book!

  140. I can't really choose between The Highlands of Abundant Waters and Undiscovered Oasis! Each is so charming. My, I really want to there. Where is it again?

  162. If given the chance to go to any one (or two) beaches from the ones above, I'll pick the Crystal Clear Waters and/or the Hidden Cove. I think they are the perfect setting for reading and relaxing. So so pretty! And I'd love to read some YA contemporary novels whilst I am there! <3

  173. When I lived in Florida, there was a beach that you could only get to via ferry, and my husband (I was married then--sad days in my life!) said we would go some time. And we never did. I would love to go because it looked so beautiful and sounded so wonderful. If I couldn't go there, I would pick the Florida Keys--never got to go there either. My ex-husband was truly a killjoy!

  174. The Wall of Impossibility near Crystal Clear Waters. Just look at the water, it's so blue, so pure looking, I love it! would love to go there and lay down with a good book!
