Your Favorite Reads: Share & Win!

I love books.

I don't think I'm in the minority here at all. You are my people. Books are awesome!

As an author, I'm sometimes given books to read for a blurb--a sort of recommendation for others to read. I can't blurb every book I get, even if I like it; I have to limit my blurbs to only a certain number per season, etc. So, of course, I have love a book in order to blurb it. It has to be the kind of book that I have absolutely no reservations thrusting into the hands of readers, the sort of book I can't stop raving about, the sort of book I wish I'd read when I was younger, that I want to re-read as soon as I finish.

When I find those kinds of books, I sort of flip out in my excitement.

And I tend to buy extra copies of them, so I have them on hand to give out to other people. Recently I was cleaning out my shelves, and realized that I had four extra copies of four awesome books I've blurb recently, and I thought--let's share the love! Not just of these amazing books, but of all books!

So--I'm going to tell you about these books and why I loved them, and I want you to pass it on: tell the world about your favorite books and why you loved them. Tweet it or post it on Facebook or writing a review or anything else--and you'll be entered to win signed copies of all these books, plus a signed copy of my book as well :)

My review:
An amazing contemporary fantasy that explores the vast legends of Korea, this richly detailed novel kept me turning the pages well into the night. Jae Hwa starts off as a strong character and ends as a noble one, using both her brains and her brawn to win the day--she's exactly the kind of girl YA literature needs.

My review: 
Rhine's struggles and pain are real, and her story is both heartbreaking and hopeful.
I couldn't read this book fast enough.

Salvage by Alexa Duncan

My review:
Alexandra Duncan's debut illustrates a richly detailed world that vividly shows a possible future of Earth where society has both regressed and progressed, where the struggles of humanity have become more dire, but where love still remains. Everything--from the world to the characters--felt viscerally real.

Origin by Jessica Khoury

My review:
I loved Origin's action, romance, and mystery--
and I couldn't stop thinking about the questions it raised.

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

My review: 
Absolutely brilliant. This is the sci fi I've been waiting for!
Action, romance, twists and turns--this book has it all!

In addition to all these wonderful books, signed, one winner will also get 
a signed poster for These Broken Stars,
 a bunch of swag from other authors, 
and a copy of Shades of Earth (signed of course)!
