Book Giveaway #8 - Beautiful Creatures

***CONTEST CLOSED. Winners will be announced soon. A huge thank you to everyone who participated!***

Hey everybody, I've having a book giveaway! Check out these books (paperback) that are up for grabs:


Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (brand new)

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps, and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

The Blue Umbrella by Mike Mason (gently-read once)
Read my review on Books Love Me - Reviews

When Zac Sparks's mother dies, he's sent to live in Five Corners with his cruel old Aunties. It isn't long before Zac knows something strange is going on. Five Corners is populated with weird characters-a midget butler, a girl who doesn't speak, a blind balloon seller, a mysterious singer, and the Aunties' father, Dada.

Zac's first encounter with Dada is so terrifying he faints dead away. The one bright spot is Sky Porter, a friendly soul who encourages Zac and shows him kindness. But Sky isn't what he seems either, and when Zac learns Sky's amazing secret, he sees that this wonderful man may have a very dark side as well. Discovering that Dada is an evil magician who has found a way to live forever, Zac knows many lives are at stake, including his own.

The details:

1. Open to everyone.
2. FILL THE FORM to enter.
3. Contest ends June 25, 2010. I'll be using Random.org to choose the winners. Good luck!

  5. Hi Josette,

    I'm glad that you liked the award. I liked your blog, and thought I'd let you know.

    Hey! You should read the first Inspector Singh book by Shamini Flint, as it's set in Malaysia.

    Although I haven't been to KL, I lived in Java for a while and I'm guessing that Flint (who lives in Singapore) has done a pretty good job of conveying what KL is like and does a wonderful job with portraying the language that people use.
