Take a Bite out of This Book Giveaway
I just loved Twilight & New Moon by Stephanie Meyer! And I'm halfway thru Eclipse, but what happens after I'm done with all 4 books?! Where are all the other vampires out there?! I decided to check out some of the other popular vampire reads out there AND decided it would be fun to have a giveaway too so other people could read something new! Of course I may be a little late in finding these books- YOU may have read one of these, so the giveaway is your choice of 1 of the 3 books I'm posting about below! The choices are: Dead Until Dark, Marked or The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers.....
One of the more popular vampire series, starring Sookie Stackhouse, is by Charlaine Harris. The first book in her southern vampire series is Dead Until Dark and we are introduced to Sookie a "small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana". She has a "disability" though - she can read minds (which really puts a damper on her love life) until the tall, dark & handsome Bill comes along - and she can't hear a word he's thinking.... which makes him exactly the kind of guy she's been waiting for! Except for the fact that he's a vampire with a bad reputation! 9 books in the series now and an HBO series based on the books!
Marked, the first book in the House of Night series by mother & daughterteam P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast is considered a YA (Young Adult) book and stars 16 yr. old Zoey Redbird. In Marked, vampyres co-exist with the humans and can 'mark' humans as special to train to become vampyre's. If you are 'marked' you enter the House of Night school where you either become a vampyre or if your body rejects the change, die. Zoey has been marked and enters the House of Night school and finds friendship and hardship. If you enter the House of Night you will follow Zoey on her journey. This series has 5 books so far and has gotten great reviews too.
Now we come to a little bit of a departure - The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers by Angie Fox. This is considered a "urban fantasy" and I put this in as a choice because it is suppose to be just a fun, entertaining read. This is really the 2nd book in the series starring Lizzie pre-school teacher turned demon slayer! The back of the book fills us in on key players and there's a bit of a prologue, so we don't feel left behind. Lizzie learns that she has certain demon destroying powers, but she has no clue what she's doing. We meet Lizzies biker witch grandmother and coven, her handsome boyfriend Dimitri who is a griffin, and a cast of wonderful characters and a hilarious plot. There's already plans for a 3rd installment to the demon slayer series!
