Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop: Win ‘Unearthly’ by Cynthia Hand!

Summertime is definitely my favorite time of year to read. I love lounging on my balcony (when it’s not scorching hot outside) with my Kindle and losing myself in a story. So, here I am to bring you a Lazy Days of Summer giveaway! Unfortunately for me, I can’t say I’ve been dealing with any lazy days lately. This summer has been so busy. While I still find time to read, it’s not as much as I’m used to. Hopefully, this isn’t the case for you because I’m giving away a book I really love!

I read Unearthly by Cynthia Hand early this year, right when the sequel, Hallowed, released. I was obsessed. I was so surprised by how much I loved this story. Especially since it’s about angels, and I don’t really like angel stories. Yet, Clara’s story managed to enrapture me; hence, I can’t wait for the final book in the trilogy, Boundless, to come out in early 2013.

I want more people to read this book. (And not just so I can have more people to obsess over Tucker with… Okay, maybe it’s that a little.) I can be fairly cynical when it comes to the YA genre. There’s so much of it now, and while there are a lot of good, there is quite a few bad ones out there. The Unearthly series is definitely one of the good ones.

To enter to win a paperback of Unearthly, fill out the Rafflecopter widget below. The more tasks you complete, the more entries you will receive. The contest is only open to US residents. (Sorry international folk! Summer has also managed to empty out my wallet.) The contest ends on August 1st. One winner will contacted via email on August 2nd. Good luck!
