Hello there! If you're new, I'm so thrilled to have you here for the weekly feature of Magic Mondays! It's very exciting for every involved.

MILA 2.0 (MILA 2.0, #1)
Debra Driza
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: March 12, 2013
I lost balance, slid sideways with the loosened saddle, saw the rocks rush toward me. I pictured my head splattering open like a broken egg while my pulse pounded a terrified drumbeat in my ears.

Wow, right? That's pretty intense stuff. Danger intertwined with desperation and certainly a bit of suspense. What happened, exactly? Well, we'll have to wait and see!

So, if you'd like to enter all you really have to do is read my Giveaways page before entering. That's all! It'll be fun.

Here's your !

Good luck, roses!
