BookWhisperer Blogaversary Week 3

This  is week three of the Blogaversary Contests at the BookWhisperer. This week up for grabs is………


Broken by Travis Thrasher

Book Description:

Laila had it all--love, family, wealth, and faith. But when her faith crumbles, her world falls apart and Laila finds herself living an empty, dangerous life as a call girl in Chicago. 
  When she is threatened, Laila shoots and kills a client in self-defense, sending herself into a spiral of guilt and emptiness. Six months later, she is trying to move on, but she's haunted by the past. She hasn't told anyone about the man she killed, and she's still estranged from her family. 
  When she is approached by a stranger who says he knows what she did, Laila has no choice but to run. But the stranger stays close behind, and Laila begins having visions of the man she killed. Little does she know she's being hounded by something not of this world, something that knows her deepest, darkest secret. 
  Scared and wandering, will Laila regain her trust in God to protect her from these demons? Or will her plea for salvation come too late?

Broken by Karin Fossum

Book Description:

A woman wakes up in the middle of the night. A strange man is in her bedroom. She lies there in silence, paralyzed with fear. The woman is an author and the man one of her characters, one in a long line that waits in her driveway for the time when she’ll tell his story. He is so desperately eager for his story to be told that he has resorted to breaking into her house and demanding that she begin. He, the author decides, is named Alvar Eide, forty-two years old, single, works in a gallery. He lives a quiet, orderly life and likes it that way—no demands, no unpleasantness. Until one icy winter day when a young drug addict, skinny and fragile, walks into the gallery. Alvar gives her a cup of coffee to warm her up. She returns a few weeks later, and then one day appears on his doorstep.

Contest will run through next Tuesday instead of Monday seeing as how I am just now getting this posted today, instead of yesterday. There will be two winners for this contest. First winner will have the pick of either book. To enter you must be a US Resident, and all you have to do it leave me your email along with why book blogging has completed your life? All winners of the Blogaversary contests will be announced at the end of the month. Wish you all could win!

Oh my gosh, I would love Broken by Travis Thrasher! It sounds so good :)

Book blogging gives me an outlet to express my ridiculous love of all things literature.

Great giveaway :) I don't have nearly as much free time as I used to now that I blog... but I definitely love my newest hobby. Plus, I looooove spreading the love of all my favorite books. I get so excited if I get just one person to read (and love) a book that I do.

My Life With Books - Jennifer K Jovus said...

I stareted reading again last November. By February I had read almost everything I could find and had read almost everything the young adult section of my small town library had to offer. I turned to the internet searching for good book reviews and suggestion. Now six months later I have a blog (that nobody checks ;) ) and have discovered so many great new books. I really have learned to appreciate reading on a whole new level, not just books in hand, but reading other book lovers blogs. SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK and HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY!

These books sound great! Thanks for blogging :-)

Blogging has given me an outlet to talk about my crazy obsession for books because I didn't have anyone to talk to them about. I thought not having too many followers would bother me, but even getting one comment on any of my posts makes my day!

Book blogging has completed my life because I feel like for the first time ever, I have been able to connect with like-minded people. I finally know people who understand me and my book love and it's a wonderful thing!

I never really thought much about blogging until I stumbled across this website. Now I have a place to connect with other people who share my addiction (books) and I can get different opinions on books I either have read or want to read.

small town girls like me have to find some way to learn about new books! I love to read!

Happy Blogaversary!
Book Blogging for me is simply fun. It allows me to follow blogs that introduces me to new book releases.
I can read a review or an author's interview and make an informed decision about the kind of books I want to read.
