Halloween Readathon + Giveaway

 Hey everyone! I'm finally back from my trip to Miami. Can I just say that it was BANANAS!!! Anywho, before I left I signed up for the Halloween Read-A-Thon hosted by Lesley @ Young Adult Books Reviewed.
This weekend I will be reading all scary/creepy books nonstop. I'm curious to see how many I can actually knock down. Here are my picks:

~She Smells the Dead by E.J. Stevens (already started so I'll continue from page 103)
~The Dead Girls' Dance (I loved the first one so I'm excited to finally get back into this series)
~The Twin's Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
~Branded (Fall of Angels) by Keary Taylor (already started so I'll continue from page 133)
~Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

There's still time to signup and you can start anytime (obviously because I'm late). Go HERE

I'm really hoping I can get through at least most of these being that I missed a day. I've also signed up to host a mini challenge in celebration of the read-a-thon. Now on to the giveaway!

I will be giving away this fabulous pair of Skull earrings being sold by Grigiodesign. This contest will end by tonight at 10/18 @ 12am. It is only open to US residents. You don't have to be a participant of the read-a-thon to enter but it would be nice. The challenge:

What's the scariest YA book you've ever read?

Leave me a comment with your answer email address. Good Luck!

In My Mailbox (19)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi The Story Siren. I didn't get much of anything this week but that's okay!

From Paperbackswap:

~Sphinx's Princess by Esther Friesner

Summary from Goodreads:

Nefertiti was far more than just a pretty face.

Nefertiti may be the dutiful daughter of a commoner, but her inquisitive mind often gets her into situations that are far from ordinary, like receiving secret lessons from a scribe. And she’s the kind of girl who acts first, and apologizes later whenever she witnesses injustice or cruelty. But she is also extraordinarily beautiful. And news of her striking beauty and impulsive behavior attracts the attention of her aunt, the manipulative Queen Tiye, who sees Nefertiti as an ideal pawn in her desire for power. Even though Nefertiti is taken from her beloved family and forced into a life filled with courtly intrigue and danger, her spirit and mind will not rest. She continues to challenge herself and the boundaries of ancient Egyptian society.

That's it for me! I have to catch up on some reading before my trip so this one book is fine.
