Back to the Future Giveaway Hop

What am I reading now?  Cinder and Scarlet (Marissa Meyer)

Annnd. . . what do I think so far?  These two futuristic retellings of the popular Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood stories are only very loosely called retellings. There are common elements included in these books but the stories are bold, exciting, twisty--very fun reads. And even if you know the fairly tales, there is no way you'll guess all the surprises in plot and character in these books.

While reading it I wondered: How did I not know Cinderella was a cyborg before? It seems so obvious now.

Listen up--
I scored 2 copies of each book AND had them signed, so I'm giving one of each away (US only). One for me and one for you (maybe).

I LOVE this series. It's fun, original, clean and exciting. What's not to love?? I'd love to add signed copies of the books to my collection. Awesome!

Oh, and if your readers want another chance to win, I'm giving away an ARC of CINDER on my blog: www.blogginboutbooks.com

Thanks for the chance to win, Canda!

Shelly Hammond said...

I don't have a strict reading resolution but I have a list of about 250 books right now and every time I get a book I write it down in my note book and assign it a number, write the number down on a slip of paper, rip the paper and put it in my plastic licorice container. Then, you probably guessed, a random number is picked. It works really well because I have some I really want to read and others I don't really want to but by doing it this way I have to read whatever comes up. I get through them quicker to get to the next! Of course, I've read 40 so far this year (I read a lot of indies so some are long, some are short and I write short reviews for them all)but everytime I read one, I think I add 5 more. That's why I don't have a strict resolution, I keep adding more! I'll get to every single one of them!! One way or another... I would love to add these books to the list as well because I gacebt read them!!

thanks for the giveaway! I don't really have a reading resolution for the year. I do have a goal to at least finish The Hobbit and The Count of Monte Cristo this year. I'm currently a full-time student and do not have much time to read for leisure right now at all even though I read a lot for my classes. I started The Count of Monte Cristo last year & haven't finished yet. I just started The Hobbit earlier this month. I'd love to finish both of them. It probably won't happen until the summer though! michelle (at) momscholar (dot) net
