It’s true, I have reached 100 followers and to say the least I am happy/thrilled/surprised (in a good way)! I started this blog back in September 2010 and I did it as a way to be more tech savvy, but to also write about what I love: books, the library, teen programming, and being a library advocate. This blog has become sort of my “baby” and although it hasn’t always been easy keeping up with it, I really enjoy having it.
I just want to give all of you a big THANK YOU for finding my blog interesting/valuable enough to follow. I really do appreciate it! As a “thank you” I am going to be doing a TRIPLE BOOK GIVEAWAY! Here are the three books that are up for grabs:
Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley
Summary (from B&N.com): The stranger’s cloak had fallen back, and with it, a long, white, blood-stained wing. When Melaia, a young priestess, witnesses the gruesome murder of a stranger in the temple courtyard, age-old legends recited in song suddenly come to life. She discovers wings on the stranger, and the murderer takes the shape of both a hawk and a man. Angels. Shape-shifters. Myths and stories—until now. Melaia finds herself in the middle of a blood feud between two immortal brothers who destroyed the stairway to heaven, stranding angels in the earthly realm. When Melaia becomes a target, she finds refuge with a band of angels attempting to restore the stairway. But the restoration is impossible without settling an ancient debt—the “breath of angel, blood of man,” a payment that involves Melaia’s heart, soul, and destiny.
Bloodspell by Amalie Howard
Summary (from B&N.com): The spell was simple...Cruentus Protectum (Defend the Blood) But what do you do if your blood is your enemy? Victoria Warrick has always known she was different. An outcast at school, she is no stranger to adversity. But when she receives an old journal for her seventeenth birthday, nothing prepares her for the dark secrets it holds -- much less one that reveals she's a witch with unimaginable power. What's more, when she meets the dazzling but enigmatic Christian Devereux, she has no idea how much her life is about to change. Enemies will hunt her. Friends will turn on her. The terrible curse that makes her blood run black will stop at nothing to control her. And Christian has a sinister secret of his own...Without knowing whom to trust, can Victoria survive her blood's deadly desires? Or will she lose everything, including herself?
The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair
Summary (from B&N.com): The redemptive journey of a young woman unsure of her engagement, who revisits in memory the events of one scorching childhood summer when her beautiful yet troubled mother spirits her away from her home to an Indian village untouched by time, where she discovers in the jungle behind her ancestral house a spellbinding garden that harbors a terrifying secret.
