100 Book Reading Challenge: February

Another month has gone by, and last month's winner was announced yesterday. How's your reading going? I managed to read 9 books last month, so I'm pretty happy.

This month, I've got two books to give away.

ARC of Cloaked by Alex Flinn
Johnny’s not your average hero. But a little magic changes everything. There isn’t a fairy godmother or any of that. It all starts with a curse. And a frognapping. And one hot-looking princess. And before Johnny knows it, he is on a mission in the Everglades, with only a flock of swans and a talking fox named Joe to help guide him against the forces of an evil witch.

Paperback of Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin
My name is Raine Benares. I'm a seeker. The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things. But some things are better left unfound. I'm a sorceress of moderate powers, from an extended family of smugglers and thieves. With a mix of street smarts and magic spells, I can usually take care of myself. But when my friend Quentin, a not-quite-reformed thief, steals an amulet from the home of a powerful necromancer, I find myself wrapped up in more trouble than I care for. I like attention as much as the next girl, but having an army of militant goblins hunting me down is not my idea of a good time. The amulet they're after holds limitless power, derived from an ancient, soul-stealing stone. And when I take possession of the item, it takes possession of me. Now my moderate powers are increasing beyond anything I can imagine-but is the résumé enhancement worth my soul?

Lisa Shearin's series isn't specifically YA, but it's definitely a good cross-over. Plus, it's chock full of fun.

To enter, fill out the form below. You may enter as many times as you like, one URL per entry (directly linking to your review, otherwise your entry is void), or a paragraph containing your thoughts on a particular book. I just need some proof that you're actually reading. :)

Must have missed the January post, oh well, new month. I managed 8 in January.

BK Mattingly said...

I only managed 3, but for me that's not too shabby :)

Tabitha said...

Sherri - pardon my silly rhyme, but eight is great! (sorry, couldn't resist) :)

Bethany - three is fantastic. Some folks can barely manage one. :)

I read 4 last month. Would've done more but I have some writing/editing challenge I need to push through.
This month I want to take my chance at the giveaway.

Sarah said...

Yay! I posted about this today, too. I read eleven books in January. (Do books you're reading a second time count? If not, only ten.)

I have a couple of reviews stored for February, I kind of feel like I should have waited to enter ;)

I have one question: is this challenge open internationally? I had read about it back in January, but 100 seemed so very many I thought I woudn't try. Then again, I read 7 in January, so maybe it's possible... May I join?

Sherrie Petersen said...

Wow, lots of book giveaways over here! I read a lot in January since I was on vacation. It think this year I've already finished 12 books!

Great books! Thanks.
