Summer Giveaway Hop - 5 recent books

I've read some wonderful new books this year and would love to pass them on to other readers -  I've set this up for five people to win.

Also,  Click this link for a chance to win from over 100 blogs also participating in this giveway hop.

Here you have a choice of:

Parallel, by Lauren Miller. When another review said this book was like the movie Groundhog Day but in reverse, where Abby wakes up nearly every morning wondering what's changed in her life because of her parallel's decisions, I IMMEDIATELY bought this book.  An intricate time-twisty delight. 

Altered, by Jennifer Rush. Girl on the run with four extraordinary boys. Tension "thick enough to braid." Details that you notice, but later they come up again and you realize they had another meaning than what you first assumed. So cool! 


Days of Blood and Starlight, by Laini Taylor. Karou: art student and monster's apprentice. More epic fantasy with more amazing twists, the kind that made me my shake my head in wonder: how did the author fit all of this together, all the pieces from the first book included??? So impressive. 

Seige and Storm, by Leigh Bardugo.  More fascinating Russian mythical creatures, breath-taking plot, and characters you can't get enough of.

The Art of Wishing, by Lindsay Ribar. Girl falls in love with her genie. I LOVE a cheeky dialogue, especially when the character's reactions are well done. Oliver was utterly lovable because he was so sure of himself, and then he'd be unexpectedly alarmed by Margo's off-the-wall questions. I loved how she kept him off-balance. She even kept herself off-balance!

  1. ART OF WISHING sounds like it's right up my alley! And I still haven't read Leigh Bardugo's series, but it sounds like I am missing out. Thanks, Margo, lots of new books to add to my GoodReads list!

  3. I should be voting for parallel, as that word is causing me problems! I write for children and want to say that the boy hero ran parallel to the fence, but not sure if the young ones will understand this... trying to describe this in another way!!
