Something Old, Something New

It's time for a giveaway!

I've got two ARCs up for grabs. Something old and something new :)

The something old is my ARC of Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. The sequel, Beautiful Darkness, came out earlier this month. Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps, and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.


Please note, this ARC has been read by a few people so the cover has a bit of wear and tear, but it is still in fair condition.


The something new is my ARC of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. This book has been getting a lot of buzz as well as some videos designed to take you into the world of one of the main characters, Shay Doran. Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything--including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

In the comments, let me know which book you'd prefer to win. If you're a follower, you get an extra entry. Contest is open for one week. A name will be randomly selected at midnight PST on Tuesday, November 2. Okay, maybe not exactly at midnight, but you need to have your entry in before that!

Good luck to you all!!

PREFER to win? How can you choose?! Ugh... I guess I'd like to win Nightshade, because I have another source for reading Beautiful Creatures. But really, this is a mean question. :P

I've already read Beautiful Creatures so I'll put my name in for Nightshade.

JEM said...

Oooh, fun! I'm going to vote for Beautiful Creatures. I've heard a lot about it but haven't had a chance to pick it up yet.

Krispy said...

Eep! I don't know which to choose! I've been wanting to read Beautiful Creatures, but Nightshade is new and therefore more rare! Hmmm. Nightshade!

+1 for being a follower! Thanks!!!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I've read BC and wasn't super impressed with it. I've heard a lot of good things about Nightshade.

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

I already own Beautiful Creatures so NIGHTSHADE is my choice! And I'm a follower! Thanks!

Jackee said...

You are so cool, Sherrie! Thanks for the book giveaway. I'm going to say Nightshade, but either one is awesome.

C.R. Evers said...

ohhhhh!!!! I'd love either one, but if I HAVE to pick, then I would pick Beautiful Creatures because I love books about the inner turmoil of having something that you don't want. Fabulous! I'd also be happy to pass the ARC on along on my blog. I love sharing the wealth.

Christine Fonseca said...

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I've heard great stuff about both but I've been wanting to read Beautiful Creatures longer. Put me in for that one! : )

Lori W. said...

I am in the middle of reading Nightshade right now! Just stopped to stretch. Beautiful Creatures is in the huge pile of TBR books stacked on my stairs. So, don't enter me, but I will say Nightshade is good!

Rebecca said...

How did I miss this before?? Oh well, I'm always up for a contest!

I'm not sure which one I'd like to win...but I guess I'll pick Nightshade just to choose one.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...
