Contest Update: Latest Books Added (Giveaway Points Post)

**Giveaway ALERT! A comment on this post (within 7 days of post date) gets you 5 extra entries in our MegaBook Giveaway. If you haven't entered yet, go to the contest post (or click on the contest link on the upper right sidebar) to enter! Good luck!

We're having a tough time keeping up! And it's a great problem to have. Thanks for all the support!

First a Happy Birthday wish with lots
of love and hugs to Jake.

He is a whopping 17 years old today! We took him to the movies to see When in Rome (very cute and Josh Duhamel is such an adorable hottie!) and we'll be eating cake shortly!




In contest news - We made it to 600 followers so four more winners added which brings us up to 12 total and the books...

Firespell by Chloe Neill was a favorite so it's in!






Then we've got a book from a series that Jake and Gregory enjoy, Stormbreaker
by Anthony Horowitz, the first in the Alex Ryder MI6 super spy series. We are also just ordered this video from Netflix and we'll let you know how it it. It's a 2006 British Indie film. Hope it's good!






Next we have a 2 in 1 book of the Gifted series by Marilyn Kaye. The volume has both
Out of Sight Out of Mind and Better Late ThanNever.







And here's a fairy tale that debuted in late 2oo9. Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. October "Toby" Daye, a changeling who is half human and half fae, has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the Faerie world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world has other ideas... "


Hope you like the picks and we should be adding even more books very soon. Be sure to ENTER and good luck to everyone!

Firespell was excellent. The books by Anthony Horowitz are very popular in my media centers too. Rosemary and Rue sounds great as do the books by Marilyn Kaye.

Happy birthday, Jake!

Firespell and Gifted sound really good!

I LOVE the Alex Rider series! I can't wait to get the newest one (number 8, I think), Crocodile Tears. The books are awesome, the movie... Well, the movie was good, but way different from the book, which was a little upsetting. Hope you enjoy it! ^_^

Such a variety of books. I haven't heard of the Gifted series or Rosemary and Rue. That's why I check out your site, to find new books. The Alex Rider series is great. I have trouble keeping it on my shelves. They are the number one books stolen from my classroom.

Anya said...

Happy Birthday Jake!:)

Wow you guys got soo many followers its amazing! Congrats!
And soo many awesome books were added! Awesome awesome gveaway!:)

Raspberry said...

I must confess I LOVE the Alex Rider series. The movie was alright. I hope they make more of them, but the books are definitely shelf worthy.
