2009- My Top Favorites- Giveaway!!

I thought that since this is the 1st of October I'd get my FIRST contest up and running..... 4 books, 4 winners!!!!

This giveaway is going to consist of four books I've read over this year-2009- that have been some of MY favorites! What better way to get your favorites and favorite authors out there, then by giving one away?

Here are my four favorite reads so far this year.... In order of most enjoyable for ME...
My favorite read so far this year has been Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson! View my review and book synopsis here.

Lamentation by Ken Scholes is the first book in The Psalms of Isaak series, wonderful read! View Synopsis here.
The Naming is the 1st book of the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon. I loved this whole series! And Guess what? If you happen to have this book and are missing one of the other three, no worries, I'll send you which ever book you are missing....

I just finished reading Pastworld by Ian Beck and I must say it rocked! I haven't read any other books by him before now, but I'm sure to go and find more of his titles now!

To Enter:
US and Canada only- sorry!

All you have to do to enter my giveaway is leave the title of the book you would like to win and your email address so I can contact you.

I promise, if I win Warbreaker, I'll then give it away on my blog too! I'm such a copycat... so technically, I'd only be borrowing your copy before it gets to the next owner... then maybe he/she can give it away as well! Read It Forward...

By the way, I mentioned the giveaway on my blog... MUAHAHA!!! gimme gimme gimme gimme....

Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.
To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

I have added you to my blogroll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.

Melissa (My World) said...

Okay, sorry I didn't post sooner. I was having troubles the other night with my comments and I had to think on which book I wanted. The truth be told, I still don't know which book I want. They both look really good. As you know I have Warbreaker & Lamentation (Both AWESOME Books) I am not sure if I want The Naming or Pastworld. They both look so good. Can you help me out if I win or do I have to choose now? Thanks!
