Belated 6 Month Blogversary + Surprise GIVEAWAY!

28 September 2012

You're probably wondering why on earth I am talking about my six month Blogversary now, when it is passed six months...but to be only just occurred to me!
A seed was planted when Gena Showalter's lovely assistant offered to give me a copy of one of her books for me to have a giveaway for all you lovely people. I immediately accepted...who doesn't?!...and then sat thinking about when I was going to host it.
I thought it should be for a special occasion and I was hoping to collect books to give away for my 1 year blogversary but I didn't want to keep you all waiting (see how kind I am?!) and decided to hold a six month blogversary giveaway instead!
So here I am, rambling on about how this giveaway came about and I can tell you're all sat on the edge of your seats, willing me to get on with it and tell you all what you'll be winning..well..I won't keep you waiting any longer!

You lucky people are going to have a chance of winning...

"Red Handed" by Gena Showalter!..
Here's a little bit about the book..

She's been chosen to fight the elusive enemy among us....
Phoenix Germaine has been trying to earn back her mother's trust after going into rehab and kicking Onadyn -- the drug of choice for New Chicago teens. But when a party in the woods turns into an all-out battle with the most ferocious aliens Phoenix has never seen, she's brought home in what appears to be an Onadyn-induced state. Hello, reform school.
Except, what her mother doesn't know is that Phoenix has just been recruited to join the elite Alien Investigation and Removal agency, where she'll learn to fight dirty, track hard, and destroy the enemy. Her professional training will be rigorous and dangerous, and the fact that one of her instructors is Ryan Stone -- the drop-dead gorgeous, nineteen-year-old agent she met in the woods that night -- doesn't make things any easier. Especially when dating him is totally against the rules....
Wildly imaginative, action-packed, and thrilling, Red Handed launches Gena Showalter's stunning new alien huntress series.
I haven't actually read this but all the reviews I've read of it do far are amazing so hopefully, whoever wins this is in for a treat!!
