Dreaming of Books Hop Giveaway


Since the Midwinter’s Eve Hop turned out to be such a huge success, I decided that I am going to participate in as many hops as I possibly could. And this, fellow readers, is the first in a series (more to come on them in the near future, I promise!). From January 14th, 2011 (12:01 a.m.) through January 17th, 2011 (11:59 p.m.) The BookBandit will be participating in the Dreaming of Books Hop Giveaway.

First, I just want to sent out at big THANK YOU to Kathy over at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and  Martha over at Reviews at Martha’s Bookshelf for hosting this hop giveaway!

Two lucky winners will have to win one of these two books:

Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer (from the back cover): “Prom. The best dress. The best shoes. The best date. Cindy Ella Gold is sick of it all. Prom fever has infected L.A. – especially Cindy’s two annoying stepsisters and her overly Botoxed stepmother. Cindy seems to be the only one immune to it all. But her anti-prom letter in the school newspaper does more to turn Cindy into Queen of the Freaks than to close the gap between the popular kids and the rest of the students. Everyone thinks she’s committed social suicide, except her two best friends – the yoga goddess India and John Hughes – worshipping Malcolm – and shockingly, the most popular senior at Castle Heights High and Cindy’s crush, Adam Silver. But with a little bit of help from an unexpected source – and the perfect pair of shoes – Cindy realizes that she still has a chance at a happily ever after.”

This a used book. Be warned  there is slight damage done to the front right side corner of the book (the cover is slightly torn, and the first eighty pages or so are slightly rippled and/or bent). However, the book is 100 % readable, these damages do not hinder its readability in any way.

– OR –

A Crack in the Sky by Mark Peter Hughes (from the back cover): “Thirteen-year-old Eli Papadopoulos is worried. Even though his grandfather founded InfiniCorp, the massive corporation that runs everything in the bustling dome-cities. Even though InfiniCorp ads and billboards are plastered everywhere proclaiming: DON’T WORRY! INFINICORP IS TAKING CARE OF EVERYTHING! Recently, Eli noticed that there’s something wrong with the artificial sky. And though the Department of Cool and Comfortable Air is working overtime, the dome-city is hotter than it’s ever been. When Eli begins asking questions, operatives from a dangerous band of terrorists contact him. The Friends of Gustavo – also known as Foggers – want to tear down everything InfiniCorp has created. They promise Eli they have the truth he seeks – if he’s brave enough to handle it. Eli does want to know the truth. But he’s about to find out that in the dome-cities, being a Papadolpoulos isn’t enough to save a rule-breaker like him from being sent far away to learn right-thinking. In his new home, the Tower, Eli meets Tabitha, once at the top of her Internship class, now a forgotten slave. Together, and with help from Eli’s beloved pet mongoose, Marilyn, they just might be able to escape … and try to make a life for themselves outside of the domes.”

This is an ARC. It hasn’t been read, and is still in the same condition in which it was received.

To Enter:  Leave a comment stating one book you are really looking forward to reading in 2011. It does NOT have to be either of the books that are up for grabs, it’s ANY book of your choosing. It isn’t required, but it is greatly appreciated if you follow and/or subscribe to this blog as well. No worries, if you don’t this will NOT hurt your chances at winning – it has no bearing what so ever on the contest.

Contest is open to U.S. residents only and will run from January 9th, 2011 (12:01 a.m.) to January 17th, 2011 (11:59 p.m.). Winner will be selected at random (through Random.org), will be contacted and announce (sometime) January 18th, 2011. Please note to the winners: once contacted (via e-mail) if I do not receive a response by January 21st, 2011 (at midnight) I will then select another winner.
