End of the World Marathon + Giveaway!

Okay guys we're back! Or at least, some of us, that is. It looks like it's just going to be Gabrielle and me for the next two months. The rest of them will be back in the new year, with a whole new design to our blog! Yay! We also got a 2013 Reading Challenge that we have been planning for months! We even got some authors and publishers on board as well. More on that later though.

So, now we are coming back to the reading and reviewing part. Gabrielle and me have a lot of books we have been wanting to read, that came out this year, but haven't gotten to them yet. We are really behind on our Goodreads challenge. I don't even want to think about the other challenges we wanted to do :/. So, we decided to have a little marathon to help us move along with it.

Gabrielle is sticking to PARANORMAL READS and I'm sticking to SCIENCE FICTION READS. We each have a list of books we been dying to read so, we are just going to dive right in. I'm even hoping to get some audio books in there as well.

To celebrate this marathon with us, we are doing a giveaway! We are giving away ARCs of two awesome books that come out next year!
The Archived by Victoria Schwab, which if you didn't know, is the writer of The Near Witch! Ivy and I thought it was fantastic. We are really excited for her next book! The tagline for The Archived is this "Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books". Sounds very chilling. 

Prodigy is the highly anticipated sequel to Legend by Marie Lu. I really loved Legend and was disappointed to see the sequel pushed back until next year. I got my chance to read it (no spoilers!) and now you have your chance!

There will be two winners! Whoever writes us back first gets first pick! So, keep an eye on those emails.

  1. I really enjoyed CREWEL by Gennifer Albin and SANCTUM by Sarah Fine. Excellent reads!

  2. I really enjoyed Alice in Zombieland which was paranormal. It was funny, a little creepy, had some good romance and was unique to the zombie scene! Thanks!

  3. Sci-fi...have you read the Lux series? Because Jennifer L. Armentrout writes THE BEST books.

    Just a Booklover

  4. I love the sci-fi themes of books. Have you read 'Across the Universe' and 'A million suns' by Beth Revis? Probablly the best series that I have ever read.

    plus, I am really desperate for "prodigy", that I had spent like a million hours to search for chance to get the book internationally.
    Please select me!!

  5. The Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout is a MUST! Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris was also really great.

  6. Definitely the Lux or Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and also Across the Universe by Beth Revis :)

  7. Crewel by Gennifer Albin and also Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi are awesome reads!

  8. Silence by Michele Sagara. Wonderful, beautiful book!

  9. Crewel, Renegade, and Insignia!
