We Love Your Comments Giveaway: Winner & new Start

This winner of our We Love Your Comments Giveaway for December is……

draconismoi 

who commented on our post “Join me on the Dark Side- The fabulous world of Science Fiction“:

Do I love SF? HAH! The only reason I even started reading fantasy was because the library shelved it with the SF. I am a SF junkie.

I (typically) started with Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series back in elementary school. But now my tastes have matured (which basically means the covers of the books I am reading now involve fewer chicks straddling the back of a dragon).

Doris Egan’s Gate of Ivory trilogy is spectacular. As is all of Sheri Tepper’s earlier works (not too crazy about her current novel).

I’ve just recently discovered Adam Troy Castro – a lawyer in space. What’s not to love?
If you go more for the lyrical writing styles, and are …

Guest Post by Author Zoe Archer + Giveaway

Today we have the pleasure to welcome an author we don’t have to present anymore…(but let’s anyway *wink*). Thank you Zoe Archer for visiting Book Lovers Inc once again *g*. Zoe’s new book, Stranger, was released this week. It is the 4th book in The Blades of the Rose series and the hero is my favorite character in the series, Catullus! Let’s give a warm welcome to Zoe, who will tell us more about a new kind of hero, the Pi. Stay tuned and you could win a copy of Stranger!
Nerd. Brainiac. Poindexter. Geek. We’ve all heard these names. Heck, many of us readers have been called those names.
I never understood why being smart is supposed to be bad, or embarrassing. Intelligence is good—it keeps us alive and aware. When it comes to brains versus beauty, I’d rather have brains (though I don’t always feel that way when …

All YA Love: Why is the Vampire Academy so amazing?

 

If you ask anyone who has read the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead  if they liked it, I would bet that you will end up with quite an impassioned and enthusiastic presentation on how much they LOVED it, what a fantastic series it is, how exciting and thrilling the story is and that they cannot wait to get the next book finally in their hands.
If you haven’t read this series you might wonder what all the fuss is about. It’s just another YA series about vampires and high school romance, right? Well no. The Vampire Academy series is so much more than that. And you want to know what sets it apart from the other YA vampire books and makes it so outstanding and exceptional? Well read on, I’m about to tell you.

1) For me it is the emotional depth and intensity that makes this series truly …

Blurb: 

Salvation has its price.

The words stunned Adrian for a moment, but he kept going. “You’re lying. What you’re describing is impossible. There’s no way to save a Strigoi. When they’re gone, they’re gone. They’re dead. Undead. Forever.”


Robert’s next words weren’t directed at Adrian. They were spoken to me. “That which is dead doesn’t always stay dead….”

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa Dragomir. It’s graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives outside of the Academy’s cold iron gates …

Blurb:

To save one good man, she’ll have to let her inner bad girl out to play…

ER nurse Jessica Bradford is a good girl. Okay, a reformed bad girl, but she’s done her late father proud. Now she’s one step away from landing Dr. Perfect, aka handsome, sexy, heroic Ben Torres—the hot fudge and cherry on top of her hard work scooping out a respectable life.

Ben learned the art of sacrifice from his missionary parents, but when a drunk driver he saved kills three people, he quits. To be precise, the fist he plants in the man’s face gets him suspended. And …

Alien Tango by Gini Koch

It’s been five months since marketing manager Katherine “Kitty” Katt started working with the aliens from Alpha Centauri, and she and Jeff Martini are getting closer. But when an experimental spacecraft is mysteriously returned to the Kennedy Space Center, Kitty and the rest of her team are called in to investigate. Now the team must survive murderous attacks, remove a space entity from a group of astronauts, and avoid an unhinged woman with a serious crush on Kitty’s high school boyfriend.

The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?


This week we have a special topic to talk about. Covers that are just plain wrong, literally. We decided to make this post after seeing a tweet from Nicole Peeler about her new German cover. She pointed out the wrongness of it and we couldn’t resist. We noticed this in the past and thought we will show you our top 3 of just stupidly wrong covers.


Susi: Okay this cover is wrong in so many ways. I don’t know why German publishers does this so often but it’s rather common here to show something totally wrong and deceiving on the cover. So here we have a book about Selkies showing a mermaid. O_O And not even pretty one for that. I don’t really like blueish covers and this …
