Happy Monday, everyone! I hope everyone's March is going fabulously. Mine has been awesome in some ways and yet majorly awful in others, so I guess it mostly balances out in the end. But enough about me. I'd rather spotlight and give away a book I loved!

The Ward
Jordana Frankel
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Forget him, I tell myself, even though telling yourself to forget something is the quickest way to make sure you remember it.

Oh yes, I loved this book very, very much. And I fell so, so hard for both Callum and Derek. My life is hard. Anyway, I want to share the love, so I thought this would make a great book to give away this week.

And you know, the only thing I ever ask is that you read my giveaway rules. Please, please, please. I am not an idiot and I can totally tell when people don't.

So, I want to wish the best of luck to all of you. And, of course, have a lovely lovely week.

  12. This book sounds SO GOOD!!! I love reading Dystopian books. I used to only read YA Urban Fantasy and those types of genres. But once I read The Pledge I was so hooked on Dystopian books. I haven't heard of this one, I'm sure it's because its a new book lol, but I am really glad that I found it. I'm doing a blog book hop and then I was looking around here on your blog and found this giveaway. Thank you so much for sharing this book and getting it out there. And thank you SO, SO much for this wonderful giveaway!!

  13. This book looks so good and I've heard really great things about it! I can't wait to read it! Thank you so much for doing this giveaway! You are awesome

  14. I've had my eye on this for a little while now. The cover alone promises a thrill ride of epic proportions and the blurb just reinforces it. Great Magic Monday pick! I'm looking forward to reading this one. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. The cover of this book alone is gorgeous, though terrifying especially after last Halloween. I have been wanting to read this book for a while now, the end of the month can't come soon enough. Thanks for the chance at what looks like an incredible debut!!
