Giveaway: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand :)

Hey, guys!

Yes, you read right! I’m hosting a giveaway 🙂 because today’s my birthday and I’m turning twenty! Woooo!

And I thought to myself why should only I get presents? So I decided to host a giveaway for you, my lovely followers, I’m giving away a copy of the YA novel “Unearthly” by Cynthia Hand. Excited?

Check it out! The giveaway is open INTERNATIONAL by the way and it runs till March 7th, 23:59:59 CET.

After the giveaway is over I will randomly let rafflecopter choose one of you and will e-mail the winner with more details. The winner has 48 hours to reply, otherwise I will choose someone else. Also I’m not responsible should the book get lost in mail (let’s hope it doesn’t).

Here’s the synopsis and the cover:

In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she’s part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn’t easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place and out of place at the same time. Because there’s another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara’s less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she’d have to make between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

[Review] Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

Synopsis: The Others freed the  cassandra sangue  to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.
Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.
For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…

[Review] One Night Of Sin by Elle Kennedy

Synpsis: When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

I got this book for free a while back and only now got around to read it and, man, did I miss out. This book was hot. The chemistry between the main characters was totally intense. The sparks were flying everywhere. I was just hooked to the pages and I normally don’t even like contemporary romance!

It’s always hard to say goodbye to a loved series and its characters. Much harder with this one, because there are so many questions left unanswered. Thankfully there will be a sequel and the first book is named “The Return” and hopefully my questions will be answered then. I still loved this books and its outcome.

Even though I wasn’t that thrilled by the first book, they grew on me. I’m really glad that I kept one reading, because in the end I would not like to have missed reading this series. Well done, Jennifer, well done.

Fair warning: SPOILERS FOR WHOLE SERIES AHEAD!
