Thanks-Giving Thursday: Giveaway #2!

Thanks-Giving Thursday is a meme I came up with to say thank you to the followers - new and old - of my blog by spreading the wealth . . . the wealth of books, that is. So every - or alternate - Thursday I will be hosting a giveaway on my blog. The prize(s) will usually include at least two books (ARCs and/or finished copies) and maybe even some sort of swag.

Can't wait to read Andrea Cremer's prequel to the Nightshade trilogy? Or Katie McGarry's breakout novel? . . . If so, you have come to the right place, because I am hosting a giveaway for an *SIGNED* ARC of Rift and an ARC of Pushing the Limits right here." rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway


Publisher: Penguin Young Readers Group
Publication date: August 7, 2012

Chronicling the rise of the Keepers, this is the stunning prequel to Andrea Cremer's internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy!

Sixteen-year-old Ember Morrow is promised to a group called Conatus after one of their healers saves her mother's life. Once she arrives, Ember finds joy in wielding swords, learning magic, and fighting the encroaching darkness loose in the world. She also finds herself falling in love with her mentor, the dashing, brooding, and powerful Barrow Hess. When the knights realize Eira, one of their leaders, is dabbling in dark magic, Ember and Barrow must choose whether to follow Eira into the nether realm or to pledge their lives to destroying her and her kind.

With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels.

Pushing the Limits:

Publisher: Harlequin
Publication date: 7/31/2012

So wrong for each other . . . and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. even Echo can't remember the whole truth. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. Now Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
