How Would You Like to Win Some ARCS? I've Got 7

So, I have a few ARCs....

Um, a lot, actually.

I was going to hang on to them until I made 500 blog friends, but after some complaints that I've been teasing you with my reviews for ARCs that won't be out for a while, I thought maybe it was time to just hold a contest already. Why wait on arbitrary milestones, yeah? So here you go! I have 7 gorgeous ARCs for you.

Note that MATCHED is signed. I know, right? I wanted to keep it for myself (OMG, it's SIGNED!), especially because Ally was one of the nicest authors I've ever met, and like the other books in this pile, I was blown away by it. But I believe in small acts of mercy, random acts of kindness...that bit. Seriously. Why hog something so beautiful to myself? That goes for all the ARCs here.

The only thing I ask with these ARCs? If you win, be sure to give them a review, okay? Authors really want to know what you think of their books--especially if you love a book, make sure you let others know. It's a tough business, folks. Authors have to do a lot of marketing themselves now. And when your time comes, you'll want others to do the same for you. Plus, that's the point of an ARC--to spread the word about an upcoming release. Goodreads is a great place to start. I'll be writing up a review for every one of these books shortly. But just so you know, every single one of them is amazing.

Books I Wanna Read

Weekly I will be posting a book that I want to read. Tell me what you think about that book if you have read it!

Wake By: Lisa McMann

Title: Wake
Author: Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Number of Pages: 210
Date of Release: 2008
Synopsis From Back of Book:


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can’t tell anybody about what she does-they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control.

Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant. . . .
