The generosity of the bookish blogging community never ceases to amaze me.
Some people donate their time by visiting other people’s blogs, liking and commenting their post – which I really appreciate.
Others hold giveaways, either of books donated by the author or publishers or even themselves.
And then there’s people like the amazing Kelly @ Book Obsession who just happened to send me a book so it would not go homeless or sitting in a shelf unread. Just because I said I might like it.
Kelly, you rock! Thank you so much for this gift <3
I hope you will visit her blog, she deserves all the best!
I actually won an international giveaway for a paperback!
I am so thankful to Shealea @ That Bookshelf Bitch for hosting the giveaway and to C.L. Denault, author of Gambit, book 1 in The Prodigy Chronicles for providing the book.
You can find the author’s site here and information about the book below:
In Earth’s battle-ridden future, humans have evolved. Those with extraordinary skills rise to power and fame. Those without live in poverty.
Sixteen-year-old Willow Kent believed she was normal. But when a genetically-advanced military officer shows up in her village and questions her identity, long-buried secrets begin to emerge. With remarkable skills and a shocking genetic code the Core and its enemies will do anything to obtain, Willow suddenly finds the freedom she craves slipping through her fingers. Greed, corruption, and genetic tampering threaten every aspect of her existence as she’s thrust, unwilling, into the sophisticated culture of the elite Core city. To ensure peace, she must leave the past behind, marry a man she’s never met, and submit to the authority of a relentless officer with a hidden agenda of his own.
Her life has become a dangerous game. How much will she sacrifice in order to win?
