Giveaway 1

Okay, so I know I don't usually keep my promises about this blog, but I did keep this one and the one about the Such a Pretty Girl Review its just posted at an April date because I had saved on a draft back then and I couldn't change the day I posted it on. So, if you haven't read that one yet go here and read it, I think it was pretty good myself.
Anyway, so I don't distract myself again, I'm doing the giveaway four days earlier with the books that weren't claimed....Which would be "M is for Magic" by Neil Gaiman, "Getting Lost with Boys" by Hailey Abbott and "The Girl Who Could Fly" by Victoria Forester. Oh and so I don't have to post the covers and synopsis's of the books again go here to check them out. So, this is what you have to do in order to get the book you want. Oh, by the way you can enter for each book. If you would like more than one, email me at lilibethramos(at)live(dot)com, and put in the subject line Giveaway
then state which books you would like. The following is for both, who just wants one book and more than one:
At least ONE must be done but not all in order to enter.
1. Comment saying which you would like (if you want more than one just comment that you're going to email me or you already have): 1 entry
2. Already a follower: 2 entries
3. Become a follower: 1entry
4. Comment on at least one of my reviews, the more comments the more entries.
5. Link giveaway to your blog and leave the link to your blog on your comment below: 5 entries.

Good luck to everyone, and spread the word, please, because I have a feeling I'm not going to get many entries. Open to U.S. residents only and ends June 26th.

Contest from Author Jeaniene Frost

Hey, everybody! Check out this contest that Jeaniene is having here, for a chance to win Vicki Peterson's City of Souls. Ends the 22nd!

Side Note: Trade or Giveaway

On a Side Note, I have some books that I'm willing to trade and if I don't get any candidates, I'll just have a giveaway for each of them. These are the books, there's 5 in total:

You just can't keep a good girl down...unless you use the proper methods.

Piper McCloud can fly. Just like that. Easy as pie.

Sure, she hasn't mastered reverse propulsion and her turns are kind of sloppy, but she's real good at the loop-the-loops.

Problem is, the good folk of Lowland County are afraid of Piper. And her ma's at her wit's end. So it seems only fitting that she leave her parents' farm to attend a top-secret, maximum-security school for kids with exceptional abilities.

School is great at first with a bunch of new friends whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. (Plus all the homemade apple pie she can eat!) But Piper is special, even among the speical. And there are consequenses.

Consequenses too dire to talk about. Too crazy to consider. And too dangerous to ignore.

At turns exhilarating and terrifying, Victoria Forester's debut novel is an unforgettable story of defiance and courage about an irresponsible heroine who can, who will, who must...fly.

Cordelia Packer hates the unexpected, but she's in for a surprise when Jacob Stein offers to be her travel companion, all the way from San Diego to her sister's place in northern California. Before she knows it, her neatly laid out summer plan has turned into a wild road trip, where anything can--and does--happen. Who knew getting lost with a boy could be so much fun?

In the small town of Duvall, Texas, the only thing that causes more trouble than gossip--is magic.
The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets in the way of supernatural are a few untimely visits from the long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost, Edie. But when her locket--an heirloom that happens to hold Edie's soul--is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it's time for Tammy to find her inner witch.
After a few experiences with her dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns to the only person who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all answers--and a double-oh-seven savoir faire to boot--but the locket isn't the only thing passed down in Tammy's family. She's also inherited a warning...to stay away from anyone named Lyons...

If you take a chance, you might just find true love waiting.
Rhiannon is devastated after the breakup with her boyfriend and wants him back.
Nicole has an ex who's still in the picture, but she can't help having a new crush.
James and Rhiannon are just friends...so far.
With their desire to take a mean girl down a notch bring these three friends what they want...and more?
Set during one life-altering week and told from three realistic perspectives, this engaging and witty novel by the author of When It Happens shows the ups and downs of love, friendship--and karma.

Stories to Delight, Enchant, and Surprise You.

Master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a breathtaking collection of tales for younger readers that may chill or amuse, but that always embrace the unexpected:

  • Humpty Dumpty's sister hires a private dectective to investigate her brother's death.
  • A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.
  • A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery, and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.

So that's all of them; if you want to trade then send me an e-mail to lilibethramos(at)live(dot)com stating which book(s) you want and on the subject line put Trade. If any of the books don't have a claim by the 30th or the 31st then they'll be up for a giveaway soon after.
