Giveaway #1 Urban Fantasy for 3 Year Blog Celebration

I've decided to do a Giveaway where I share what I've loved, yet you get to pick what fits you.  So I've created a collage of my Top Five Urban Fantasy Books I've loved in the last year (since last Blog Birthday) for you to pick from.

*Note:  If you have not yet read the first book (as it may not be on here) I am willing to let you pick the first book of a series listed here in place of the book listed here so you can start the fabulous series.  BUT it has to be the book of the series listed here, not something completely different.

And once again as I'm grateful to all my followers close and a far, this giveaway will be open INTERNATIONAL.  As long as Amazon or Book Depository delivers to you.  I trust you know if they deliver to you, then you can enter.

Giveaway Ends:  August 5, 2012 11:59pm EST.  Winner will be announced shortly after, once I get through all the tallying of all giveaways (could take a couple days.)

Must be at least 18 to enter.  These are Adult books.

What do you need to do?

+2 ~ Leave a comment here saying what book has caught your eye on the list.

  6. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! Isn't it crazy to think that we've been doing this for so long? Unfortunately I haven't had as much time as I used to to visit here, or any other blog, and I see I have so much to catch up on. I hope you have many more years of fantastic blogging!

    I've love to try the Ann Aguirre series. She's kind of hit or miss for me bit worth the risk.
