Giveaway(US/Int): Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop – what “team” are you?
Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, is finally here and the holiday shopping season has officially begun!

Welcome to the Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop, hosted by Book Savvy Babe, The Baudy Book Blog, and Alive on the Shelves.
In the over-the-top, consumer-friendly spirit of Black Friday, we’re giving away 4 prizes for this hop… which means four winners! Here’s what’s up for grabs…

From DaVinciKittie’s review of Blood of the Demon…
Blood of the Demon is an exciting read, filled with hunky half-demons, steamy (and original!) sex scenes, awesome supernatural abilities, a heart-warming love story, and of course zombies. The starter novel for the witty, sexy, Demons of Infernum series (Honorable Mention for 2011 GraveTells Series of the Year), Blood of the Demonis a GraveTells Must Read!
Blood of the Demon was recently named as one of GraveTells “Top 5 Books of 2011 You Absolutely MUST Read!”and author Rosalie Lario won our 2011 Debut Author of the Year award. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, go go go and start reading! The final book releases in March, so you have just enough time to read the first four and catch Dagan’s story when it’s hot off the presses. =)

From DaVinciKittie’s review of Alice in Zombieland…
These zombies are not your typical brain-eating, slow-moving, grunting and stupid automatons with a shuffling gait. They are scary, fast, and feel frighteningly real. I’m not a zombie kind of gal. I don’t like horror, gore, or things that go bump in the night. I find rotting flesh and nomming brains way more disgusting than entertaining, and I like my action books dosed with a healthy heaping of steamy, sweaty naughtiness. Based on all that, you’d think Alice in Zombieland is definitely not my kind of story, but this book is GOOD! With very little sexual content, Alice and Cole steam up the pages (can I have my own Cole? Pretty please?), and even the down and dirty zombie scenes had me wanting more, more, more!
If you like paranormal romance and urban fantasy and only read 5 books this year, Gena Showalter’s Alice in Zombieland should be on that list! In a genre where ‘original’ is quickly giving way to ‘same old regurgitated plot’, AiZ is fresh and unique, and a GraveTells “must read”!

Team Qhuay (Black Dagger Brotherhood)

So far, I would have to say The Hunger Games. It isn’t that I enjoyed that book more than others I have read but that a friend MADE me read it and I remembered why I loved reading and took it up again.
