Tyger, Tyger E-book Special Promotion & Signed Paperback Giveaway!

In 2010 at BEA I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Tyger, Tyger by Kersten Hamilton. It had an interesting summary and sounded like something I would enjoy. And I did enjoy it (Check out my review here!) It was unique compared to everything else I had ever read, and something like that sticks with you.

In just two days, the sequel to Tyger, Tyger, In the Forests of the Night, will be released. In celebration of the upcoming release, Kersten's publisher is having an e-book promotion for Tyger, Tyger. You can get it at a special price of only $2.99. This special is available at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Google. Don't wait too long, this promotion is only going on for about another week!

Since In the Forests of the Night will be out so soon, Kersten has kindly offered up one signed paperback copy of Tyger, Tyger to one lucky winner.

This is a US only contest! It will run from now until Sunday 11/27/11.

This is my first time using Rafflecopter so I hope everything works well for you guys. Enter your name(whatever you don't mind people seeing) and email (only I will see). Leave a comment to enter and tweet to get an extra entry (you can do this once a day!).

Covers and trailers and EPICNESS! OH MY!

Just because I've been absent from blogging lately, doesn't mean I still don't see the recently revealed covers of upcoming books, as well as the release of book trailers. If anything, I'm on the lookout more, so that I can keep track of what books are coming out and when, so I can snag myself a copy.

It seems that this week has gifted us with many a book covers, and one magnificentally well made book trailer.

First: As an inkpopper, I've known about Wendy Higgins' upcoming Sweet Evil ever since it was first announced (Coming May 1st, 2012). Well, yesterday Wendy tweeted the cover (you can follow her on twitter too @Wendy_Higgins) and I must say: WOW! It's incredibly beautiful, and elegant and it says so much without saying anything at all. It offers a contrast with not only the bright vs. dark side, but also the vibrant, rich red vs. the deep black. It shows that some type of romance is obviously involved, and I unsurprisingly, am okay with this (Duh). I want to stare at this book cover, and then I want to pet it. A little much? Probably... but I don't care. If I knew nothing about this book, I wouldn't care, I would still pick it up and buy it because of this cover alone. And while one should never judge a book by its cover, if you get this book and don't like it (I haven't read it so I can't tell you my feelings about it yet) at least you have a gorgeous book sitting on your shelf. Anyways... STARE AWAY!

Second: We got TWO cover reveals yesterday for two of Lauren Kate's books. One of which is Rapture: A Fallen Novel (June 12th, 2012 from Delacorte Books). This cover while being very similar to the other, a girl in a dress, is different because it feautures the girl in a white dress, rather than a black. And it is by far my favorite of them all. All of the covers are very beautiful but this offers a different tone. Each of the other covers shows a girl whose hanging her head. In this cover, at the very least she is looking straight ahead, maybe up a little. What are your thoughts? Do you have a favorite cover of the four Fallen novels?

Last but NOT LEAST: Trailer of EPICNESS. I have seen many books trailers, and I can say that this is one of my ALL TIME favorites (So many capitals, sorry this is kind of exciting). I have already had the great pleasure of reading Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (Out Nov. 15th, 2011 from Harperteen), and this trailer does a wonderful job of showing off this wonderful book in such a short period of time. No need to say much, watch and decide for yourself. Share your thoughts in the comment section, I would love to hear what everyone thinks of this!

What are come recent cover reveals that you went ga-ga over? Book trailers?
