Win It Wednesday: The Dastardly Miss Lizzie by Viola Carr

Win It Wednesday: The Dastardly Miss Lizzie by Viola Carr Earlier this week, Amy reviewed The Dastardly Miss Lizzie. Steampunk goodness with fascinating character dichotomy is always a win, which is why we’ve been hooked on the Electric Empire series since day one. If you’re eager for more of Viola Carr’s series, you’re in luck. I have one copy of the just-released The Dastardly Miss Lizzie set aside for a lucky VBC reader. If you want...

Win It Wednesday: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike

Win It Wednesday: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike It’s been a hot minute since we gave away a young adult book in Win It Wednesday. I didn’t forget about everyone who loves their YA fixes (myself included!), and I have an excellent book for you this week: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike. Despite the name, don’t expect Mariah Carey at all. We’re talking Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette. Royalty going drug dealer in a dystopian setting...

Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman I am all kinds of nerdy excited for the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It’s not just the cast, which includes Ricky Whittle (a.k.a. Lincoln from The 100) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday. The look, the feel, the timing is right for a revisit of this great fantasy novel. Not too long ago, I did a re-read of American Gods on audio. It has a full-cast...

Win It Wednesday: Immortal Unchained by Lynsay Sands

Win It Wednesday: Immortal Unchained by Lynsay Sands Yesterday the 25th Argeneau book came out. Yes, twenty-five books in a vampire romance series. What’s better? They are enjoyable as stand-alones, and in smaller arcs (we’d suggest reading books 23, 24, and 25 together, for example). And VBC’s Amy gave Immortal Unchained a big thumbs up yesterday in her review. We love the way Lynsay Sands combines humor and heat to keep us hooked on...

Win It Wednesday: Ever After by Kim Harrison

Win It Wednesday: Ever After by Kim Harrison How many of you have read the Hollows series by Kim Harrison? It’s a great urban fantasy series, and actually one I found got stronger and stronger the longer the series ran. With that in mind, I have a copy of Ever After by Kim Harrison. It’s the 11th novel in the Hollows series (sometimes you’ll see it called the Rachel Morgan series, too), and is from another expanding point in the...

Win It Wednesday: Magic for Nothing by Seanan McGuire (ARC)

Win It Wednesday: Magic for Nothing by Seanan McGuire (ARC) Last week we diverged from our weekly contest in the name of delving into the insanely awesome new-release schedule.

Win It Wednesday: In A Fix by Linda Grimes (Ciel Halligan #1) I’m in the mood for an unconventional urban fantasy, so for this week’s Win It Wednesday I’m giving away a copy of Linda Grimes’ In a Fix. Jo has reviewed this series (now at book 4), and has loved the unique twists in the books. In a Fix is the first in the Ciel Halligan series, and here’s a snippet from Jo’s review for convincing: This book had me in stitches, the...

So how about I giveaway one of those books to a lucky reader? Rachel Vincent has been an auto-buy author for me for quite some time. She knows how to balance an engaging plot, character development, and the emotional suckerpunch that serves a purpose. Menagerie explores humanity...
