May Book of Choice Giveaway Hop WW 05/15

May Book of Choice Giveaway – Open Worldwide

may book of choice

Welcome to the May Book of Choice Giveaway Hop! In January I made a resolution to read 12 books. May sees me reading my sixth book of the year, so I have a pretty strong feeling that I will surpass my current goal.

First, a big congrats to our April Book of Choice Winner Lee-Ann Lawrence who picked Light by Michael Grant!

If you’re a YA Dystopian fan like I am, and you haven’t read the Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore yet, I highly recommend them. It took me a few chapters to get into the first book, but since then I honestly have a really difficult time putting them down.

There are 7 books in the main series:

  • I Am Number Four
  • The Power of Six
  • The Rise of Nine
  • The Fall of Five
  • The Revenge of Seven
  • The Fate of Ten
  • United as One

And then there are The Lost Files, which is a series of spin off stories which focus on the individual characters, also written by Pittacus Lore.

  • The Legacies
  • Secret Histories
  • Hidden Enemy
  • Rebel Allies
  • Zero Hour

June will see Generation One by Pittacus Lore released, which will be the first book in a new series that takes place one year later.

It remains my goal to finish this series this year, including Generation One, before the year ends. I’m hopeful that I will meet that goal, and move on to some of the other books that I have waiting for me such as The Fever Code by James Dashner and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Once again,  I am offering you a chance to win a book of your choice. Like the previous months, the book choice/genre is up to you! You can pick a book from your favourite author, or pick a book for your child! Pretty much anything goes.  Just make sure that the book is available from The Book Depository, and that the total price is less than $12 in Canadian Funds. You can filter the currency in the upper right hand side of their page to choose CAD.

The Prize: ONE (1) Winner will receive a new book of their choice worth up to $12 CAD (ordered from The Book Depository).

  21. Oh gosh so hard to pick, but I think one of the books I’d like to read the most right now is And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. I absolutely loved his other 2 books (The Kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns). I’m also interested in 13 Reasons Why, haven’t watched the show yet, but curious to see what it’s about. My brother just finished the Netflix series and has told me he really wants to read the book, so I think it’d be cool to read that one together.

    I haven’t read I Am Number Four yet but I’ve been looking at it for a while now! I also recently finished Maze Runner and am excited to continue the series.

  22. I would like to get a book by Rhonda Hetzel –> The Simple Home (Paperback $9.59CDN) or Down to Earth.
