Freebie Friday 12



Freebie Friday has been a little sporadic this summer. But it's back today!

Here are the great new summer releases that the winner has to choose from. Highlighted titles link to Goodreads.


A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

My Life in Black and White by Natasha Friend

The Thing about the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt

Survive by Alex Morel

The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin

Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan

How does Freebie Friday work? It's easy.
Just leave me a comment. Tell me what you're reading, about a book you can't wait to read, about what you're doing for the rest of the summer. Anything!

If you are very mysterious on the internet, please also leave your email in the Google Doc. But the comment is what enters you.

That's it. Entries close at 8:00 AM EST on Sunday morning, August 5. Then Random.org draws a number and the person who left that comment gets to choose any one of those books above, which will be mailed on Monday the 6th!

Open internationally. 

All this week's winners will be announced by first name or nickname on Extra! Extra! tomorrow.  (ETA: Forgot about deadline extension. They'll be announced on next week's Extra! Extra!)

  4. Right now I'm in a sort of reading slump... so I'm actually going between books, all of which haven't really grabbed me yet. :( It's between Daughter of Smoke and Bone and a couple NetGalley ARCs which I feel the obligation to read.

    1. Read Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Do it! You won't regret it...and I'm sure it'll break you outta that reading slump! :D

    2. A lot of people in these comments have said they are slumping. Maybe it's the summer??
      But I agree -- Daughter of S and B is really good!

  5. I'm finally reading Cinder. Heard so many great things about it, and I'm only 20% in, but I think it's a keeper. :) I'm participating in the Summer Wrap-Up Read-a-thon starting tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get through a lot of books over the course of the next nine days. We'll see, tho. If The Diviners arrives soon, though, I'm dropping everything to start it. I just know it's going to be good!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I really enjoyed Cinder.
      Yes, the Diviners is sitting on my shelf, taunting me. I try to read review books in order, but it's hard sometimes....

  6. Right now,I just finished Insurgent by Veronica Roth (so good), and I'm making my way through Gone With the Wind. It's actually better than I thought.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaways every Friday. It's sweet.

  8. I'm reading Auracle now for a book tour. It's okay so far but I'm just getting to the action so hopefully it gets better. I'm really excited to read The Book Thief actually! It was the last thing I got out from the library so I have to read other stuff first...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Um...I'm almost to the end of Lipstick Apology, and I just finished reading My Life Next Door. I don't know what I'm going to read next.

    1. Love both of those. And that's perfect, because they're both completely different, but both SO good!!

  16. Right now, I'm reading Fury by Elizabeth Miles. It's not really keeping my interest and I've waited so long to buy this book. Don't you hate when that happens? I think I'm gonna put that one on hold and start Glitch. I haven't heard a lot of good things about it, but hopefully it keeps me interested.

    Thanks for the Freebie Fridays!!!!!!!!! :D

  17. I just finished reading Capital Girls by Ella Monroe last night. It was okay, not the best, but the ending was good. I'm participating in the Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon that starts tomorrow, so I have a huge TBR which includes 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, Pushing the Limits and Team Human among other books.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  18. I'm reading ReVamped by Ada Adams as well as Painfully Ordinary by Stephanie Amox. An author friend recommended me to her, so now I'm following up on reading her book and reviewing it. It always feels nice when you get recommended by an author that you read before :)

    1. I look forward to hearing about them on your blog.
      Or more poems. You have a knack for that!!

  19. I just finished reading My Life Next Door which was really good. Not my typical type of book but I like to throw in books that my daughter likes to read so we can chat about them. I am really glad I read it!

    I am currently reading Holiday in Death by JD Robb. I have been all over the board this summer.

    I am looking forward to reading Pushing the Limits. Again, not my typical read but with all the hype and my weird mood I really want to!

    Thanks so much!

    1. Loved both of those (MLND and PTL) and I also love JD Robb. I'm a little behind on that series!!

  22. I'm reading The Lost Girl and it's really good! Super crazy though. Who would want to have a girl learn all about your daughter so she can replace her?! That is just ridiculous. I'm going on a rafting trip this weekend and have been doing a lot of swimming this summer. Happy Friday!

    1. I've never heard of that one but it sounds creepy!!

    1. I resisted reading that because it just sounds disturbing, but I have heard that it's really great. I also love Aussie authors. I've got A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley on top of my pile...

  27. I just finished The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and it was crazy!! And seriously mind boggling!

  30. I'm currently reading two books: Touch by Jus Accardo which I'm loving and Second Grave On The Left by Darynda Jones. If you want to read an adult series, I would recommend Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series. Charley is a grim reaper with some snark and it's amazing! I can't wait for her YA release.

    1. Thanks for the book recommendations. i've heard of Touch but not the others!

  33. I'm currently reading Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry ... it's super good so far!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm currently reading Seraphina (which I'm absolutely loving, go dragons!) even though I've got a HUGE Literature assignment/text next week which I should probably be focusing on. I'm also dying to read False Memory by Dan Krokos, which I've ordered a copy through the library, and some of the comments above just reminded me that I have to get to Gunmetal Magic when I get the time.

    Replies
    1. Seraphina sounds interesting and I have false memory on my stack!!

      Delete
  35. I'm currently reading Glow By Amy Kathleen Ryan. It's okay, but I'm not totally immersed in it like I get with some books. My TBR piles continues to grow though, and I am lucky enough (sarcasm) to be cleaning apartments for the rest of summer. I'm sure you're all jealous!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, hope the apartments have air conditioning at least. I've been outside way too much lately and it's really hot here!!

  36. I just started In Honor by Jessi Kirby; at the moment I am reminded of why I don't really like road trip books but I'm hoping it will improve.

    ReplyDelete

    1. LOL -- you love epistolary fiction and I love road trip books. We need to swap books.

  37. Well, we've been crazy-busy helping not one but TWO family members who are moving. You wouldn't believe all that we need to get done in less than 14 days lol

    When I'm goofing off (like now) I'm either on the laptop or finishing up a good book, currently I'm reading Captivate :D

    Thank you for the sweet giveaway, hope it's cool & pleasant in your neck o' the woods <3

  39. I just finished Across the Universe and it was frexing fantastic! I loved that there was very minimal romance. Sometimes it's just a breath of fresh air.
    Next up on deck is Miss Peregrine's Home since it was due back at the library 2 days ago. And no, that's no an exaggeration :P

    For the remainder of the Summer I'm torn between things I need to do around the house and things I want to do for fun. We will get out to the beach today, but maybe only for a little while.
    First, I've got to paint those new rainspouts on the garage, sigh.

    1. Beach sounds nice. I know what you mean. I have a big pile of documents I need to shred and shredding is SO boring -- you can't even watch TV because it's so loud. Maybe I can figure out how to read while I do it ...
