Book Tuesday: GIVEAWAY x2!!

So I have a very different post for today’s Book Tuesday! Since I was slack last week and didn’t post a review, I thought I would make it up to you all with something else this week–a giveaway x2!

Last night I went to the book signing for Susan Dennard’s Truthwitch and Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger! Since I love you all, I got each of their books signed for two of you lucky winners! I’ve read Truthwitch and loved it and I’m about halfway through Passenger and can’t put it down.  SO GOOD.

The signing was awesome! Completely packed.  Erin Bowman was our moderator for the night and she had some fantastic questions for Alex and Sooz.

Book Tuesday: Top Books of 2015

Like last year, I thought I would try and narrow down my top ten favorite books of 2015.  And like last year, there was no way I could narrow it down to 10 books.

What?! I read over 100 books this year! You try narrowing them down to 10…

I might also have grouped a series together and counted it as one…

Book Tuesday: ARC – Truthwitch

Title: Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1)
Author: Susan Dennard
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: January 5, 2015
Pages: 416

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

Heir of Fire Launch Party aka Fangirling to the Extreme

I’m not sure when authors reached the level where girls were fangirling over meeting them, but I think it’s an amazing and wonderful thing.  Maybe it started with JK Rowling? Who knows.  All I know is I was totally fangirling at the Heir of Fire launch party at Books of Wonder in NYC.

Sarah J. Maas was joined by her two besties, the amazing Susan Dennard and Alexandra Bracken.

The room was packed; Jess and I squeezed our way toward the back.  We were surrounded by a bunch of teenage girls, but some older ones as well, waiting to hear the panel.  It was a fun, informal, girls get-together (ok, a few boys were thrown into the mix as well), where Sarah, Susan, and Alexandra discussed Star Wars, Sailor Moon, Tamora Pierce, Outlander, and some embarrassing early writing samples from High School.

I think everybody in that room wanted to be friends with them by the end of the night–that’s how down to earth and fun the three of them are.
