Spring Cleaning Book Giveaway Hop



Welcome to my Spring Cleaning Giveaway.

 This giveaway is being sponsored by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.  Make sure to visit here to see the list of great giveaways.

I've spent several hours looking through my numerous stacks of book trying to decide which books really aren't my thing or that I'm simply not likely to ever get around to reading.  I'm hoping that these books can find new homes.  I have a bunch that I'd like to giveaway, but I can only afford to ship three.  So here's how this is going to work.

Rules:

  1. You must be 13 or older to enter.
  2. Unfortunately, shipping costs force me to limit this giveaway to the U.S.
  3. Fill out the Rafflecopter form below.
  4. There will be THREE winners.  First winner gets first choice of the six books listed below, second winner gets second choice, and third winner gets third choice.
  5. I will notify the winner within 48 hours of the end of the giveaway.  The winner then has 48 hours to respond before I chose another winner.
Here are the books I am offering:



Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. But she never felt ready to face them---until now. Defying the Auran Council and everything she's been taught, Llona must learn to use her power over light as a weapon if she wants to survive.
 What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem. From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias' death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.


 
On October 31, 1984, Indira Gandhi is gunned down by two Sikh bodyguards. The murder sparks riots in Delhi and for three days Sikh families are targeted and killed in retribution for the Prime Minister’s death. It is into this chaos that sixteen-year-old Maya and her Sikh father, Amar, arrive from their home in Canada. India’s political instability is the backdrop and catalyst for Maya’s awakening to the world. KARMA is the story of how a young woman, straddling two cultures and enduring personal loss, learns forgiveness, acceptance and love.



The world knows Jack London as a writer who lived his own thrilling, real-life adventures. But there are parts of his life that have remained hidden for many years, things so horrifying even he couldn’t set them down in writing. These are the Secret Journeys of Jack London.

We meet Jack at age seventeen, following thousands of men and women into the Yukon Territory in search of gold. For Jack, the journey holds the promise of another kind of fortune: challenge and adventure. But what he finds in the wild north is something far more sinister than he could ever have imagined: kidnapping and slavery, the murderous nature of desperate men, and, amidst it all, supernatural beasts of the wilderness that prey upon the weakness in men’s hearts. 



Abigail Thaddeus lives with her grandparents in an old, spooky, ramshackle mansion. While her life is certainly unusual, Abigail finds it just plain boring. That is, until she receives an anonymous letter that sends her on a quest to research mythical creatures.






  

Wolf Mark by Joseph Bruchac, is about Luke who discovers his Abenaki family's secret a skin that will let him walk as a wolf and must save his father from kidnappers.






GOOD LUCK!
