Young Adult Giveaway Hop

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 with 3 comments

Welcome to my stop on the Young Adult Giveaway Hop, hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer and Reading Teen, both great blogs that host some amazing giveaways themselves.  I toyed with the idea of giving away my copy of Breaking Dawn in keeping with the giveaway image, but although it was my least favorite of the Twilight books, I can't separate the series like that. :P  So, instead, here's what I'm giving away on my stop:


Add to Goodreads
Title:  Throne of Glass
Author:  Sarah J. Maas
Series:  1st book in the Throne of Glass series
Publisher:  Bloomsbury
Publication Date:  August 7, 2012
Purchase:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.


I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK.  If you're a fan of fantasy, love a good mystery, and enjoy when it's a girl doing the a$$-kicking for a change, this one is for you.  But in case you need further convincing, here's my review.  :D

Rules:
  • US residents only, sorry, unless you can provide a US shipping address.
  • One entry per household.
  • All entries will be verified.  Any entry found to be falsified will result in disqualification of all entries for that participant.
  • Winner will be notified via email.  Winner will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be selected.
  • I am not responsible for lost packages, but I do use delivery confirmation via USPS, so this should not be a problem.
And now on to the fun stuff!  You only have to follow my blog to enter, but all other entries/follows are appreciated!  :D
