Today I'm so excited to participate in the Last Days of Freedom Giveaway Hop sponsored by I Am A Reader, Not a Writer and The Elliott Review. I love these giveaway hops because it's a way to say thanks to all my awesome followers and to share a whole lot of awesome books. You know I love that!

So here's the choices this time. They're all books I've read or am really looking forward to reading. Click on the titles below for a Goodreads description of the book.





AURACLE by Gina Rosati
BITTERBLUE by Kristin Cashore
CHANGLING by Philiippa Gregory
ENDLESSLY by Kiersten White
GRAVE MERCY by R.L. LaFevers
INSURGENT by Veronica Roth
RIFT by Andrea Cremer
SERAPHINA by Rachel Hartman
THE FALSE PRINCE by Jennifer Nielsen
THE KILL ORDER by James Dashner
SHADOW AND BONE by Leigh Bardugo

Hope you are as excited as me about the choices.

So there will be two winners. To enter, all you need to do is be a follower (just click the follow button if you’re not a follower) and leave a comment telling me what book you want by August 22nd. I’ll announce the winner on August 27th. If your e-mail is not on Blogger, please list it in your comment. International entries are welcome as long as The Book Depository ships to you for free.

If you mention this contest on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, mention this in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry.

Don't forget to enter my other contests for DEFIANCE, FRACTURED LIGHT, THE STONE GIRL and THE EMOTION THESAURUS. The links are at the top of the blog.

Here's what's coming up next.

On Monday I'll be featuring DARK FROST, a great paranormal YA story by Jennifer Estep with a giveaway.

The following Monday I'm interviewing debut author Meagan Spooner and giving away her awesome fantasy/dystopian book SKYLARK. It was so good that I stayed up way too late one weeknight finishing it and was SO tired at work the next day. But it was totally worth it. I know you'll love this book. 

Wednesday that week I'm participating in Patty Blount's blog tour and giving away a copy of SEND, a contemporary novel about bullying told from the perspective of the bully. It sounds really good and I'm excited to share it and Patty's guest post with you.

 On Tuesday Tips next week, we have a special guest post by Royce Buckingham on how to decide on your next book with a giveaway of DEMONKEEPER, a  fun YA paranormal story written from the POV of a male character. The following Tuesday Richard Due will share self-publishing tips and a giveaway of a print version of his middle grade fantasy THE MOON COIN. I'm really excited to share this with you because it's gotten good reviews for the story and the illustrations by Carolyn Arcabascio. I'm hoping some of you and your middle grade kids would enjoy his book.

And don't forget Casey's Thursday agent spotlights.

Hope to see you on Monday!

Here's all the other blogs participating in this blog hop:
