Halloween is meant to be a time for treats, and what better to treat you with than books?! I have the awesome opportunity, thanks to my friends at Random House, to offer my readers some fabulous books that are halloween related in one way or another.
Take a look at the titles and descriptions, and leave a comment as to which one you would like to win. You can pick more than one, if you are interested. I will choose one commenter for each book. Since Halloween is Saturday, this will be a quick contest. I will choose the winners next Friday.
So, comment and get the word out via your blog, twitter, facebook, whatever. I will give extra entries for spreading the word, as long as you leave me a link to where you post it. You can also have an extra entry if you are a follower of my blog: new or old. Also leave your email address or I won't be able to contact you should you win. Look for past contest winners to be announced this weekend and more contests to come.
For the young reader looking for a spooky, fireside read:
For the slightly more advanced reader looking for a funny, clever romp:
This sequel to Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go finds Marlo left behind in Heck when Milton escapes in a “soul balloon” made of old clothes. Marlo is sent straight to Rapacia, the circle where greedy kids are tormented daily by a glittering shopper’s paradise called Mallvana that’s always just out of reach. Back on Earth, Milton’s having his own issues. He’s got to find a way to communicate with Marlo and get her out of Heck, but it’s hard to concentrate when his body and soul don’t seem to hold together like they used to.
For the teen girl looking for romance with a supernatural twist:
A broken leg has put a halt to Sylvie Davis’s ballet career, and her broken home causes even more pain. After her father’s death and her mother’s remarriage, Sylvie sets herself on a road to self-destruction. Her mother intervenes, sending her off for the summer to her relatives in Alabama, where a distant cousin is restoring the family home. It turns out that the house, and her family, have more history than Sylvie imagined. Two handsome guys only add to the drama when they begin vying for her affections.
Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well? With a spirited, spot-on heroine, richly drawn setting, and plenty of suspense to keep the pages turning, this southern gothic romance is sure to enthrall teen readers.
