No Strings Attached Giveaway Hop


Greetings everyone! Welcome to my stop on the No Strings Attached Giveaway Hop hosted by Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer.

Of course, you can do any number of those things out of the goodness of your heart, but it's not necessary for you to do so in order to enter.

For my part in the giveaway, I thought I would share a few of my excellent reads within the last twelve months and then let you pick one. I hope there's at least one book in this list to interest everyone! You can win one of these fabulous paperbacks (click on the cover to learn more about the book):



If you'd like a different book in the series than depicted, you can absolutely choose that one instead (as long as it's already been released in paperback). This is an international giveaway and it will run from the 15th to the 21st of January! Just make sure the Book Depository ships to your country (click here to check) and you're eligible to enter.

Guest Review: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson


The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
Hardcover: 372 pages
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Release Date: 29 Sept 2011
Age Level: Young Adult
Purchase: Amazon | Book Depository | IndieBound
The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago.

Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I had just finished reading The Last Little Blue Envelope by the same author, which was very good, by the way. After reading the summary on the jacket, I knew this was going to be pretty different from her blue envelope duo, but I didn't realize it was going to be so different. I admittedly have little experience with Maureen's writing (I always find it odd to refer to authors by their last names, don't you?)

I also wanted to let you guys know there's an International giveaway coming up on the the 15th and another one in February. So see? More people can win something, just like I promised. Again, thanks go to all of you wonderful people who took the time to enter this giveaway. I bet you'd like to know who won now, huh?
