Shades of Gray ARCs

I have a few ARCs of Shades of Gray to give away. Anyone interested? :)

I’ll run this contest for the rest of the week and draw a winner hopefully around Sundayish. I know next week is Thanksgiving but I hope to get addresses from the winners and get them in the mail right after Thanksgiving so you guys will get them a whole month ahead of the release date!

So if you want to be entered, a few things you need to know. I’ll draw winners as I said Sundayish. Which may mean Monday. But at any rate, you will need to check back to see if you won and you will need to get me your address no later than Friday of next week. ARCs will be mailed out the following Monday. I won’t hunt you down, so if you don’t provide me the mailing info, I’ll award the ARC to someone else.

To enter, just post a comment below and tell me what 2013 books you’re looking forward to ! (Yes I’m compiling a shopping list haha)

Good luck to everyone!

    Hello Maya!!!

    Soooo, books for 2013. Well, here are the ones I have pre-ordered on my kindle:
    1)Thrill Ride by Julie Ann Walker.(Part of her Black Knights Inc. Series)
    2)Wait Until Dark by M. L. Buchman (Part of the Night Stalkers series)
    3)Free Fall by Catherine Mann (Elite Force series–No Brainer here)
    4)Dream Eyes by Jayne Ann Krentz (A Dark Legacy Novel)
    5) Shadow Woman by Linda Howard (Release Jan 1…Uh Oh. This one might have to wait.)
    6) Hotshot by Julie Garwood (I had to cover my eyes to click the pre-order button-$12.99 for kindle edition! Yikes!)
    7) If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones (This one looks REALLY good!)

    Forged in Ash (A Red-Hot SEALS Novel)–This one I haven’t bought yet since there is no description available, but I plan too. I like this series, a lot!

    I know you said 2013 books, but If you haven’t already read Long Gone by Marliss Melton that came out in October buy it! Sooo good. Her writing has the perfect mix of suspense and romance.

    Also, here are some books coming out at the end of this year, to tide you over:
    1) Shiver by Karen Robards (December 4, 2012)
    2)Keeper of the Bride by Tess Gerritsen (Nov. 20, 2012-Almost here!)
    3)Edge of Sanity: An Edge Novel by Shannon K. Butcher(December 4, 2012)-I haven’t read any of her books before, but a friend recommended it.

    Hope this helps! Happy Shopping!
