Impromptu Giveaway!

I’ve been cleaning up my den and doing some rearranging, which reminded me that I have an extra copy of Insurgent by Veronica Roth so I’m holding an impromptu giveaway for it.

The giveaway will run for 7 days (7/14 to 7/20), and I’m making it fairly simple and easy.  It’s only open to US residents as I will be shipping the book myself (don’t worry international folks, my August giveaway will be open to all)

6 Month Blogiversary Giveaway!

Blogiversary, Giveaways 16

Technically my six month blogiversary passed by the weekend of Read-a-Thon but I’m celebrating it now!  One of my most anticipated books this spring was Social Suicide by Gemma Halliday.  I read Deadly Cool a couple of months ago and absolutely fell in love with the characters and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.  Because of my love for these books I will be giving away one copy of either Social Suicide OR Deadly Cool.

Gemma Halliday Deadly Cool

Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he’s pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren’t enough, now he’s depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool.

But as much as Hartley wouldn’t mind seeing him squirm, she knows he’s innocent, and she’s the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school’s resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer’s next victim.

Gemma Halliday Social Suicide

Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.

Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper’s brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went… a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH’s resident body finder, I’m stuck trying to prove that Sydney’s death wasn’t suicide.

I’m starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos…
