I've got the time to wait. I didn't really enjoy the first book but the excerpt from the second book intrigued me. But I won't cry if I don't win.
Ok so, "A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa." You had me at paleontological. Seriously, I'm a history/anthropology/archaeology/geology/all around histoscience (my own special word there folks) NUT! There is time travelling, supernatural powers, rewriting of human history! It's like, wow, it's I'm so there. I'm seriously putting this on my "MUST BUY" list if I don't win. That's how excited this book's summary made me. (I spent an entire semester working on a paper about Australopithecus Afarensis-Lucy....While listening to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds over and over....yea I'm that big of a nerd.)
I want to read the first book, Birthmarked, and what better motivation than winning the second book. I'm not gonna lie though. If I win this book I'm reading it before I get the first. I'm not above reading out of order. LOL.
I'm just gonna let the summary speak for itself here:Check. Check. And Check.
Kendra Hilferty, the witch who curses Kyle Kingsbury in Beastly, tells about her immortal existence-how she discovered she was a witch and the various ways she has used her powers to help people throughout the centuries. (Unfortunately her attempts have often backfired.) As it turns out, Kendra has actually had a hand in "Hansel and Gretel," "The Princess and the Pea," and "The Little Mermaid"-but these are not the fairy tales you think you know! Kendra's reminiscences are wrapped around a real-time version of "Cinderella," except the "ugly" stepsister is the good guy. With dark twists, hilarious turns, and unexpected endings, Bewitching is a contemporary read for fairy-tale lovers, fantasy fans, and anyone looking for more Alex Flinn.
I'm a history nut. So anything that has to do with History, The Romans, and England...thumbs up...balls to the wall....I want it. Right Meow. I just think it would be a really interesting read. I love the anthropological side to history. You can keep the specific dates of battles or laws. I wanna know what life was like for the common man, aristocrat, and everyone else.
I'm gonna be honest. I never read her Wolves of Mercy Falls series. But the summary to this looked good. Plus it's getting some hype...so what the heck I'll throw my hat in.
So that's the giveaways I've entered. My reasonings behind why I entered each one. I still can't get over the Out of Oz giveaway. *drools* You don't know how bad I wanna lick my computer screen right now.
