Our Blogoversary Giveaway

On Monday we reached another milestone: our blogoversary. Has it already been one year since we decided to blog about our love of reading and books? One year of seeing how amazing the community of book reviewers and bloggers really is. Wow. We have enjoyed the weekly memes and contests, meeting and reading the variety of opinions around the blogosphere, participating in book tours and contacting authors. We find we approach our reading a little differently and keep a pen handy to jot down page numbers and make notes. 

The one thing that hasn't changed is the simple joy we get from being enveloped by a story--the power of words on a page or screen. With the growing popularity of e-readers our own reading experiences have changed to include digital books. The YA market is incredibly hot and we think it's great. Unfortunately a happening market can make our deciding what to read next difficult (since there are so many titles we would like to dive right into). And with the glut of digital titles available (many are so cheap or even free!), our TBR piles have gotten huge.

Books, reading, one thing is clear: everyone who stops by here is a book lover. We thank our readers for taking the time to click on a link and peruse our blog. We thought we should celebrate. Celebrate how? By giving away some books to our readers! So we decided to host a weekly giveaway for a month

This week's giveaway is YA paranormal: The paperback version of Hush, Hush and an ARC of Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Hush, Hush: For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. 


For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.


Crescendo: Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. 

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.


One reader will win both in this series. Enter here. Don't forget, 
we will post a new giveaway each week for a month so check back often!
