Booksy Book ARC Giveaway
Did you think I might forget? Not I. Today is the first of the month and, as such, the monthly ARC giveaway.
Three very different titles for you this week from three very different authors. I will explain about each.
How to Ditch Your Fairy by Justine Larbalestier – By all accounts brilliant, but it is YA and I cannot touch that stuff or I dissolve like a slug under salt. It has been getting rave reviews, however. Please to bear in mind.
Lincoln and His Boys by Rosemary Wells – Illustrated by P.J. Lynch, at that. I’ve linked to a truly amazing review of it that is worth reading.
The Crown of Thorns by Jeff Smith – This is just the ARC and not the final colorized copy (due out in January, I believe). I’ve read it already and feel satisfied. Now I KNOW that some of you have been fielding requests from Bone-hungry kids who are simply desperate to read this final chapter in the saga. When we get these kids in the library and I have an ARC on hand, I usually let them borrow or have it. However, the Donnell Library shut its doors for good on Friday and I don’t think I’ll be able to provide a book like this for a small fry for quite some time. You can, though! If you win it that is.
As per usual, here are the rules. Those of you who have chosen to read me on Labor Day get a leg up because I’m only offering these for a single day. If you can send me your request for one of these three titles I will plop your names into the running and send these three copies to three lucky winners. HOWEVER, you must contact me by midnight tonight (Monday). Send me a request on Tuesday and I will chuck you affectionately under the chin and show you to the door.
To send me your request, click on my name at the beginning of this post and send me an email. I’ll let you know how you do.
