(Eek sorry this post is late! I can't figure out why it didn't post at its scheduled time…man, I hate blogger right now.)

So, today it is Magic Monday again. The school year is winding down and so Mondays aren't quite so painful as they used to be although they still suck an awful lot. Anyway, I have a giveaway for you all here today. It's for a sequel that I expected to love but actually really didn't like at all. However, it still has a gorgeous cover and I know there are tons of people out there who would appreciate it.

Dance of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #2)
Bethany Griffin
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Release Date: June 11, 2013
I don't know how it happened, but I'm holding Elliott's hand. Not clinging to it or allowing him to pull me along–my hand just somehow found its way into his.

So, there you are. That is one of the better quotes from this book because overall there weren't a ton of great ones. This one was all right, though. So, just read my giveaway guidelines and use the rafflecopter below to enter. Simple and easy.

  1. OMGGGGGG I want to enter this giveaway and then win it just so I can tell you not to buy it for me so I can buy it for you lol. I'm a very odd person.
