Blogging Pays Off!

I won three books from two different blog contests this week. Good times!

The first book is YA fiction title Goth Girl Rising by Barry Lyga. It looks like a sequel so I'll need to see whether reading the first will be beneficial. I usually prefer to do this. I won the book by commenting on the Guide to Literary Agents blog. The author's other books look like they have interesting and rather complex sounding storylines. I'm intrigued.

The other two I won came from a major freebie giveaway on the Beyond Her Book blog linked with Publisher's Weekly. They were giving away e-readers and tons of books by various authors in different genres. I won an advanced copy of the YA book Invincible (Chronicles of Nick) by Sherrilyn Kenyon which is the second in a series. 

Lastly, I will get an ebook version of Trail of the Tudor Blue by Gwen Roman, which is romance fiction. I'm not a regular romance reader, and even the cover looks different than pretty much everything I read, but I will give this a shot. I like to branch out and will give any book a fair chance. Since I don't have an e-reader yet, I'm going to download it to the Kindle app on my phone.

Yup, the To Read list just got longer. This is fine by me! I just need to keep up the dedication to keeping up with it.
