Whatcha Got Wednesday? Library Edition!

First up, be sure to enter my contest for a prize back (two books and an giftcard!). Go to this post to enter.

So, I have talked about how great libraries are - I just want to show you how awesome my library is. All the books shown to the side are library books. I know they're small and hard to see, but there are some new titles in there. Starting from the left, we have some Lorelei James, "iDrakula," "Personal Demons," "Graceling," "The Replacement," "When Harry Met Molly," "Smalltown USA," "Blood Ties" (By Lori Armstrong, Lorelei James' alter ego), "Rampant," "Perfect Fifths," and several more. Sorry for the glare in the picture - but aren't all those books pretty?! And they're all organized by due date, as well. ;)

And here we have my books received for this week.
Bought: "Storm Born" by Richelle Mead - it just sounded so good...

For Review: "License to Ensorcell" (ARC) by Katharine Kerr - this is for review on Romance Reviews Today.

GIVEAWAY: Prize Pack - Books and an Amazon giftcard!

*********************** CONTEST CLOSED ******************************

Well everyone, it's December, which means it's time for the Holidays - or at least cold weather! And to me, that means curling up under a blanket with a good book. So that's my gift to you! One lucky winner will receive TWO books and $10 dollar gift card!

That's right, one lucky duck will get a copy of two books I enjoyed this year - "The Sky: The World" by Jessica McHugh, and "No Rest for the Wicca" by Toni LoTempio. I know I enjoyed curling up and reading them, and I'm sure you will too! And if that wasn't good enough for you, I'm including an gift card as well! While you're on Amazon buying gifts for your loved ones for the holidays, get a little something for yourself as well - you deserve it. =)

Want to know more about the books you can win! Well sure!
"No Rest for the Wicca" by Toni LoTempio features Paranormal Investigator Morgan Hawkes. Morgan uses her gifts and her expertise to track down a seriel killer that has been using voodoo mythology in each murder. She teams up with Inheritor Vampire Cole St. John, making this one steamy and suspenseful case.

I reviewed this book over a month ago and really enjoyed it. Fans of Anita Blake will be all over "No Rest for the Wicca." You can find my review here, and make sure to check out the author's Smashwords page as well!  Personally, I'm hoping for a sequel - Morgan Hawkes is a fascinating character. And I can't quite get enough of Cole St. John.

The second book in the prize pack is "The Sky: The World" by Jessica McHugh. Another book I reviewed and just couldn't put down. "The Sky: The World" follows pilot Jack Racine as he goes on an important mission, a mission given to him by the great Dr. Azaz himself. But is Dr. Azaz really the great man everyone things he is? Can Jack complete this mission, even if it means learning something so disastrous?

I reviewed "The Sky: The World" not so long ago, and loved loved loved it. Make sure to check out my review here, and then go browse the author's page. There's plenty to see, and I highly recommend browsing her shop ( McHugh Merch ) and looking at all the great Tshirt slogans.

And lastly - the final part of the prize pack is the gift card, delivered electronicly (Assuming I do it correctly!) so that you can do your shopping right away. So that said, what you would buy with the giftcard? Is there a book you've been wanting? Would you put it towards a larger purchase? Maybe just browse the deals until the perfect item jumps out at you?  Let me know in the comments!

~ Leave a comment, and include your email (No email, no entry!)
~ Contest closes Sunday, December 19th at 11:59pm EST.
~ Winner will be announced Monday December 20th, and will be contacted via email.
~ Are you a follower? State that in your comment (ex "+1 Follower") and you earn an EXTRA ENTRY!
~ There will only be one winner.

Thank you! And I hope you all have a great week. Check back Monday to see who won. Good luck, everyone!
