BOOK LOVER's PARADISE EPIC GIVEAWAY!


THIS CONTEST HAS CONCLUDED. Click here to see the winners!


This month get ready for our MASSIVE BOOK GIVEAWAY!

Six extraordinary YA Fiction books that are waiting to be saved by one of YOU!

Here are the selections:


The Great God Pan by Donna Jo Napoli
Two signed paperback copies, never read!

Pan, the god of nature, is half goat and half god. He is loved by the gods on Olympus and by the creatures of his realm, for his merry ways as well as for the enchanting music he makes with his pipes. But Pan is also cursed. For who will ever love him, caught as he is between two forms, two worlds?

When Pan meets Iphigenia, the daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra, he is captivated by the young princess, even though the gods warn him against loving a mortal.

Meanwhile, the first winds of the Trojan War have begun to stir, beinging with them a tragic role for Iphigenia. As Pan struggles with his love for her and with his need to find his true self, he begins to understand the ultimate sacrifice.




______________

Deep by Susanna Vance
One signed paperback copy, never read.

Nothing really bad had ever happened to Birdie Sidwell. And she hates it! She yearns for drama, angst--something atrocious to provide fodder for the amazing book she wants to write. When her parents take a trip to the Caribbean, she gets her wish...

Morgan Bera is a child of the seas. Raised by nomadic Norwegian parents who encouraged her to chart her own course, and filled with sorrow after the sea claims one of their own, she attemts to establish a new life for herself in the warm waters of the tropics.

But first Morgan must get "official" papers. And there's only one person who can help her--someone who has an unseen capacity for evil...



______________





I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter



One paperback, read once, wonderful condition!

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school--typical, that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses, but it's really a school for spies.

Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killling a man seven different ways with her bare hands, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl.

Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real "pavement artist"--but can she maneuver a reltionship with someon who can never know the truth about her?



______________






Peeps by Scott Westerfeld
One paperback copy, read once, great condition.

After a chance encounter with a mysterious woman one night, Cal Thompson's life is changed forever. He's been infected with an insidious parasite. The good news: he's only a carrier--still sane, without the worst of the symptoms. The bad news: he's infected all his former girlfriends--and now they've turned into what Cal calls peeps. The rest of us call them vampires. And it's Cal's job to hunt them down before they create even more of their kind...






______________


Tithe by Holly Black
One paperback copy, read once, perfect condition.

Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms -- a struggle that could very well mean her death.

    "This month get ready for our MASSIVE BOOK GIVEAWAY!
    Six extraordinary YA Fiction books that are waiting to be saved by one of YOU!", but there are only five books listed. Just wondering if the the number is wrong or if you forget to post a book.
