Bloodlines Winner and New Giveaway...

Congratulations to Emily Rencich (you should have received an email from me) for winning the hardcover copy of Bloodlines by Richelle Mead!  I hope you love this book as much as I do!  

For my newest Giveaway (which will run for 2 weeks again this cycle) we have Wildefire by Karsten Knight.

Every flame begins with a spark.Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

So not only is Karsten Knight HOT and hilarious, he also knows how to write a great attention-grabbing-can't-put-this-down type of book!  And I'd have to say that Wildefire has one of my favorite/the best beginnings of any book I've ever read.  If you want to peruse his website for some awesome fun click here or you can follow him on twitter here.   He also has Embers and Echoes (the sequel) coming out August 28th, 2012.
