I have an ARC up for grabs!


Every month or two I get a book in the mail that I never asked to review from a publisher or author. Most of the time it's a book I've never even heard about, and I have no idea why someone mailed it to me or how they got my address! The other day I got a package in the mail and inside was an ARC of Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz. I was pretty excited at first since she's a well-known author and I haven't read her work before. However, once I looked the book up on Goodreads, I saw that it's the first book in a new fantasy series for...
adults. I am nooooot a fan of the adult genre, I pretty much will only read young adult. The few times I've read adult books I don't enjoy them as much and many of them I never even finish. So I decided I'd give this unread ARC to a home where it would be more welcomed! :) I'm sure it's a terrific book, but it's just not for me.

It’s the beginning of summer in North Hampton, and beautiful Freya Beauchamp is celebrating her engagement to wealthy Bran Gardiner, the heir to Fair Haven and Gardiners Island. But Freya is drawn to Bran’s gorgeous but unreliable brother Killian, and sparks fly when the two decide to play a dangerous game, following an ancient story of love, betrayal and tragedy that harks back to the days of Valhalla.

Witches of East End follows the Beauchamp family—the formidable matriarch Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid. Freya, a sexy bartender, has a potion to cure every kind of heartache, while Ingrid, the local librarian, solves complicated domestic problems with her ability to tie magical knots. Joanna is the witch to see when modern medicine has no more answers; her powers can wake the dead. Everything seems to be going smoothly until a young girl, Molly Lancaster, goes missing after taking one of Freya’s irresistible cocktails. As more of the town’s residents begin disappearing, everyone seems to have the same suspects in mind: the Beauchamp women.

Fraught with love, small-town secrets, and witchcraft, Witches of East End will capture any reader who craves a page-turning, heart-stopping story of myth and magic from an author who knows how to deliver. (Will be published on June 21, 2011.)

Rules and all that jazz:
Open to the USA only.
Ends on April 25, 2011.

  1. Hmm, I love fantasy, but I AM a little shaky on it's adult audience. I still enjoy adult books, it's just harder for me to find one that I love just as much as some YA books, so thanks for the opportunity! :)


Thanks, I love what you have to say!
