A Giveaway! A Giveaway! A Giveaway!

I was sent an Advanced Readers copy of Brandilynn Collin’s newest book. All I had to do was review it on my blog. There are some serious perks to being a blogger!

I have read many of Bradilynn’s books, and I LOVE them. I loved her Hidden Faces Series so much I bought a copy of this series for my sister as a gift. And her Kanner Lake Series? Totally freaked me out!

Let me give you some advice; if you go to a little cabin in the woods in the middle of nowhere with your family on vacation, and let your husband leave you and the sleeping children in the little cabin to go hang out with the rest of the family at the campsites about a mile away, don’t take the opportunity to finish the series. I know it would seem like a good idea, what with the lack of TV’s or computers or, really any other sounds or people to distract you, but it will get in your head. Then when the little woodland animals begin to scurry about after dark, you will be certain you are being stalked by a psycho killer and work yourself into such a state, that when your husband finally comes back, he will take in your frenzied appearance and request you stop reading the scary books already!

I mean, I guess. I don’t know for sure. Ahem.

So back to the newest book. It is called Dark Pursuit. It did not have quite the freak-out factor that the last two series did, but it was good none the less. (BTW, this is a stand alone book and not the beginning of a new series.)

You can read what it is about here. I don’t want to add to that because I don’t want to give anything away. Let me just say that I read it in two days and it did not disappoint. The ending left me very satisfied.

Also I read it during the day when I was not alone and the sun was up, bright and shiny.

Now for the best part! Brandilynn has agreed to send a brand spankin’ new copy to one lucky winner when it comes out in early November!

Here is what you have to do. Just leave me a comment telling me what your favorite genre to read is; romance, suspense, mystery, fantasy, non-fiction, teen fiction books about vampires, whatever. I’m dying to know.

I will leave this post up until Tuesday. I’ll close the comments at midnight on Tuesday and use the Random Number Generator Thingie to choose who gets to win this spine tingling book!

I love to read just about anything but my all time favorite is horror, scary bump in the dark, don't read it home alone stuff. During the long Maine winters, when the power is out and the wind and snow are whirling around there is nothing better than to be drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book. Have a great weekend!

I tend to read non-fiction (parenting, religion, etc.), but I love a good teen vampire novel *wink* or anything that takes my mind off of the world's troubles for a while.

Love your blog!

I have to pic a favorite genre? Is that possible? Okay...I tend to read a ton of non-fiction. As for fiction, I suppose if I *have* to would be fantasy.

I like all kinds of books, but my fave is mystery.

Tonya said...

Historical fiction - or anything else I can get my hands on to read (sales flyers, cereal boxes ...).

I'm still trying to understand how Ann was in the tree and riding a scooter. Maybe you are too. Some things cannot be explained! She sounds like my oldest - can't keep her feet on the ground. Abigail just has a constant sprained ankle, seems like.

Tammy said...

I like Mysteries - crime solving would be my day job if I had! Thanks for the chance

Tricia, just had to pop on and say HI! I didn't know you were on the TOS crew! I'm Candace, from the FIAR boards! :) I'm on the crew too and just saw your message about the book contest. :)

My favorite genre of books is christian fiction.

Sarah said...

I am over from the Crew :) My first comment disappeared. I like just about any genre but my favorite right now is Janette Oke type books and Amish fiction.


Lori said...

Sounds like fun! I haven't had a blog giveaway yet but am hoping to soon. Fun!

I have broad tastes but my favorites tend to be mystery, suspense, fantasy. All three combined is perfect.

I actually just picked up the teenage vampire romance from the library today and have the newest from that author sitting in my book box crying out to be read as soon as I can spare a moment! (Or several, have you SEEN the size of that thing?!) ;-)

OOOh, these books sound good. However, we go camping at our family cottage a LOT in the summer/fall and I go with the kids alone sometimes and when it's really quiet there thoughts do creep in! I love a good suspense or romance or combination of both.

Shauna said...

Hi Tricia! I'm also on the FIAR board and the TOS Crew. I really enjoyed Brandilyn Collins' Bradleyville series but haven't read any of her suspense.

I like an eclectic mix of genres, but really enjoy a good mystery or a well written drama. I have never read this author- sounds good. You don't need to enter me though- I won your last book drawing.

I go in cycles for what I like to read. For a while, it seemed like it was mostly non-fiction. Since Septemeber, I've been devouring a variety of fiction. It started by joining a book club in our new community where the selections vary quite a bit each month.

However, I typically gravitate to mysteries, fantasies, and occasionally a 'chick lit' book for brain candy.

Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win a new book, but more importantly for me is another author to look up at the library.

I find that I make more time for non-fiction in general, but when I do read fiction, I prefer it to be something with some meat, something thoughfully crafted. I'm only now around to reading The Shack, and were it not for everyone I know having read it already, it would probably be a book I'd put back on the shelf.

Hi! I'm visiting from the Homeschool Crew! I love fiction of all types - some of my favorites are historical, suspense and supernatural. I have favorites in cycles and right now I'm on a supernatural cycle! And yes, I've read the currently-popular teen vampire romances too!

I love Christian fiction!
