Blogmania 2010 is HERE!!!

Blog 79 of 169
A Queen's Ransom

Well, I guess that all depends on who the queen is. Since it is me, my ransom would be books. In my previous blogmania posts I said I was going to have a chest, as some queens are wont to do, I have changed my mind. I thought I would rather add more books to my contest and an international winner as well. For the international winner I have added a $20 book allowance to The Book Depository because I hate people being left out of anything.
Now to recap the things that were added in previous posts the prizes begin as follows:





blank leather journals ( check them out in this post )

R.L. LaFevers- autographed copies of the first 3 books in her Theodosia Series ( pictured here)

BookReaderTimes - a copy of Underground by Kat Richardson, a signed copy of Wicked by Sara Shepard and a copy of Heartless by Sara Shephard

Elizabeth Thelen- ( an awesome friend I "met" online through the MomWriters yahoo group)-
A crocheted blanket and some handmade ornaments.

I have also added the following books myself-

Lift by Kelly Corrigan, The Temptation of the Night Jasmine by Lauren Willig, Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Stolarz, Mistress By Mistake by Maggie Robinson, Thief of light by Denise Rossetti, How to Uncage a Girl by Fancesca Lia Block, A Highlander Christmas anthology, Shade by Jeri Smith Ready and gently read copies of Sweet Surrender by Maya Banks and No Mercy by Sherrilyn Kenyon. ( and possibly other books if I pick some up between now and when I mail the prizes)

To enter this contest, simply fill out the form.

Althought comments are greatly appreciated, you must enter through the form.

We have been having trouble with the code that has the list of participating blogs, if the html doesn't work or show up you can find an alternate copy of the list here.

Alpha by Rachel Vincent --Trailer

Rachel Vincent has posted the trailer for Alpha and is giving away a signed copy of Alpha on her blog.


The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc, and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder, and treason. Yeah, we’ve been busy. But now it’s time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother’s death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.

It’s not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I’m heading for a final showdown that can—that will—change everything forever.

Review of Siren Song By Cat Adams

Celia Graves survived becoming an Abomination. She continues to work as a bodyguard in the same town where she was attacked. The vampire attack awakened a part of Celia that she knew nothing about - she's part Siren. Summoned to the Sirens’ island for reasons unknown, Celia must fight off many enemies if she wants to find out about her heritage.

I thoroughly enjoyed book one in this series, BLOOD SONG, and book two is no different. Just when you think you have Cat Adams’ world figured out, they throw more surprises at you. It seems Sirens have more than the average power. They’re not only able to seduce men and alienate women, but they also have several surprises up their sleeves.

The author has created a paranormal fantasy world that leaves the reader wanting more. Interesting characters, wonderful world-building, and a mythology that gets more interesting with every character they throw into the mix. Many authors try to pull the reader in from the beginning of the story - Cat Adams succeeds.

Fast-paced, twists and turns, excitement galore, SIREN SONG does not disappoint. With this second book, I am even more sure that this will be one of the best series that I will read this year. You never know what is going to happen, but you definitely know that whatever it is it will be exciting and hard to put down.

5 star Gold Award
