book reviews for the thrifty soul

Fun in the Sun Giveaway Hop

A spectacular THANK YOU to Kate at Ex Libris and Cari at Cari Blogs for helping organize this fantastic hop!

Cool pic, huh? Makes me wish I was on the beach somewhere, with a good book.

We’re super excited because this isn’t only our first hop, but our first giveaway EVER! *throws confetti* So here’s the deal.  We have an autographed copy of CINDER.  And we want to give it to you.

How cool is this cover?

Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, the ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

How awesome does that sound?! And you can win your very own, shiny copy.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the last year and haven’t heard about how incredible CINDER is, head on over to Rachel’s Review to hear her gush.  Definitely on the list of favorite books.

    I can’t wait to read this book, I’ve heard great things but haven’t had a chance. My favorite fairytale, hmmmm, storywise, I think Sleeping Beauty. But I’m with the majority, if we’re going Disney, it’s Beauty and the Beast all the way. And I prefer Beast to his princely incarnation. 🙂

    My favorite fairytale is Rumpelstiltskin! He is one of my favorite “villains,” even though in his defense, it was the Queen that didn’t keep her promise.

  23. My favorite fairy tail is Snow White, she is so pretty and I have read and watched Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs many, many times.
