Unabridged Audra and the Spooktacular Blog Hop Giveaway!

There are many MANY different blogs participating in this particular blog hop, so you should go to Unabridged Audra's blog and check out what they're giving away - this is one of the easiest ways to get books, and doesn't even cost you anything. She's giving away a box of 15 books... yes, you read that right A BOX OF 15 DIFFERENT TITLES FOR FREE. Go enter now, seriously.

Among those blogs that are participating in the Spooktacular Blog Hop is Stuck In Books Blog, giving away one of three titles: Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon, The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa, or Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout. I already have the first book on my "to-read" shelf at home, and look forward to getting the other two titles (one way or another) since they're both so highly recommended. Iron Knight just came out this week, so it's a pretty hot commodity. Go enter to win it for free!

Another blog that I happened across that's giving away the award-winning Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Chaos, the third book of the Beautiful Creatures series, is Chick Loves Lit. It's super easy to enter, and as always it's no cost to you. Go enter and win some free stuff!

Most of these I hear about on twitter from this woman: Patricia Leppla. If you're not on there, it's worth creating an account just to follow her about book giveaways. She posts tons of them all the time, and it's super fun to find new book review blogs with suggestions for new reads! Her blog is also here, so go check it out for yourself!
