Giveaway!! (Malice by Chris Wooding)

In honor of Bookish's debut and an awesome review from Rae, I'm going to be giving away a new copy of Malice by Chris Wooding. Just fill out the form at the bottom and we'll shoot you an email if you win. Giveaway ends 9/24.
     Summery by Goodreads.com;
Everyone's heard of it, but nobody's read it...Seth and Kady have heard all the stories about MALICE - a secret comic about a strange and awful world full of traps and tricks, overseen by a sinister master of ceremonies, Tall Jake. But if rumours are to be believed, the children in this comic are real...


And, as promised, review it from my viewpoint as well. ;)

     Malice is a fantastic example of beautiful writing. Although the scattered comics suggest childish presentation, the writing was superb and the transitions close to flawless. I was alarmed at how fiercely I was pulled into the novel so quickly and how eagerly I awaited the resolution, (with none to be had).
     I agree with Rae as she described the romance as down-played, but in a good way, and yet, I longed for the story to be about Kady and her epic adventures on both sides of the world.
     Beyond all this, the most difficulty I had with the book was it's chilly proportions. I disliked it very thoroughly and suggest that those already suspicious or easily frightened abandon this book or re-gift it.
      Visit Here for Rae's review. ;)

  3. Congrats on the new blog! My only suggestion would be to add a Pages menu at the top and have a separate page with links to your reviews so that they are easier to find. You can also add separate pages for your challenges and giveaways or whatever else you would like to add!

    Thanks for the giveaway!
