Hello, darlings! First off, I truly cannot tell you all how awesome you are. All your kind words these past few days have warmed my heart and really mean a lot. Thank you all for your love and appreciation.

Now, for the first Magic Monday in quite some time! This is also my last full day of high school ever (I do have to attend part-time on Tuesday, which is my last day) so I'm pretty excited! And so I chose a really highly anticipated book to feature this week!

Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1)
Kendare Blake
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: September 10, 2013
They'll be on me as soon as I fall. So fast. They could take me anytime they want, but they like it better that way. With me broken and degraded. Without the breath to scream. They'll tear me into ribbons and gulp me down. I'll see their necks and shoulders jerk while they do it. I'll hear the shredding of my own skin.

So, there it is. A bit grotesque, no? But that's exactly why I like it. I have actually been lucky enough to have the pleasure of reading Antigoddess, and I can tell you that it is absolutely perfect. It also made me cry, because apparently Kendare really, really likes to make me cry. This book is fantastic. So, if you want to enter, you only have to do one thing for me: read my giveaways page. Then just fill out any or all of the rafflecopter entries below.

Good luck, everyone! Thank you again for welcoming me back! Much love!



  1. The snippet certainly got my attention. I'm loving the cover too.

  2. Thanks for sharing! THis is the first I"ve come across this book and author and I"m definitely interested now :)

  3. Ahh fantastic giveaway! I wanted to get it so bad at BEA but we had to leave because the line was too long and we might not have gotten a book even though we probably DEFINITELY would've. But anyway. Eek that excerpt is pretty graphic at the same time sooo insanely intriguing!

  4. The book sounds great! Love the excerpt and the cover! Must read it!

  5. I'm so excited for this book to come out! I loved Anna Dressed in Blood and I'm a big fan of Greek mythology, especially Athena!

  6. This looks so good! Very excited to read this after reading Anna Dressed in Blood! Thanks!

  7. I'm really excited to read this one! It sounds awesome! Thanks so much for the chance!

  8. I am a huge fan of Anna Dressed in Blood, and Anna herself. It is, in my opinion, one of the best YA horror novels out there! That basement scene is forever imprinted on my memory. So, needless to say but going to anyway, when I heard about Antigoddess, and then saw the amazing cover, I knew that it was a must for me! SO thank YOU Annabelle for this Magic Monday giveaway!
