Welcome to the 20th day of Book Lovers Inc Advent Calendar. Each day we will offer you one great read in a giveaway on all 24 days till Christmas.

Today you will have the chance to win a signed copy of one of my favorite reads for this year, and that is none other than Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout!!!

Honestly, words can’t really describe how much I enjoyed reading this book and how amazing an author Jennifer L. Armentrout is. Half-Blood is an action-packed YA novel with really interesting characters and a romance to die for! I just couldn’t put it down, and I’m pretty sure our lucky winner won’t be able to as well!

Purchasing Info: Jennifer L. Amentrout Blog, Goodreads,, Book Depository, Barnes and Noble, Publisher

Book Blurb:

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

The Review:

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout comes to fill the void I felt inside since Vampire Academy series ended…Yes,yes,that’s how much I loved it!I didn’t just love it exactly,I’m ecstatic about it and all I can think…  Read the rest of the review.

    O wow, a signed copy! I have a weakness for those 😉 does it include a bookmark?
    On Christmas Day, well, it will be just me, my boyfriend and his youngest daughter. I’ll be prepraring a luxury lunch, and for the evening we will be “gourmetting”. Shopping list is prepared already, and I plan on being at the store at 8 a.m.
    On the second Day of Christmas, we will be spending the day with my family, and Peter’s other daughter will be there as well. First time she meets my family kind of scary and exciting. My father will be cooking Christmas Dinner that day. Looking forward to it, but it is also tiring, and I have to go to work on Tuesday like nothing has happened.

    Oh dear – this is going to sound terrible, but it’s true. On Christmas day, I will be spending the day at my in-laws, watching my husband and father-in-law drink themselves into an obnoxious, unbearable (Happy for them) heckling, TV watching, lazy do nothings. Meanwhile, I will be helping my resentful and negative mother-in-law make the meal, serve snacks and listen to her grumbling and stomping round the house while trying to stuff down my own resentment, and help my brand new daughter-in-law (who is homesick to death because her family lives many states away from us) feel loved and wanted and shielded from all of this dysfunction as I possibly can! Ugh. This is year #23 of this for me. I almost cry on the drive there, lol!
    I’d much rather cry off sick and read your book, lol.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway chance.

  • Vojalyn December 20, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    Well, I plan to spend my Christmas with my family 🙂 We always decorate our christmas tree together and I usually bake some cakes with my mum, but sometimes it’s better when I don’t even go in the kitchen, because I cook awfully 🙂 But it always has it’s feeling when I’m with my family 🙂

    Christmas day I plan to make cinnamon orange rolls for the boys for breakfast and then take it easy. I have pre-made lasagna for dinner since it’s just the four of us and we’re all kind of tired of turkey and ham :). Thanks for the giveaway.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Barbara Elness December 20, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    I plan to spend my Christmas day sleeping in, playing on my computer and reading a good book. I’ll probably talk to my family on the phone or via Skype. Then I’ll have a little dinner and some pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

  • Marissa December 21, 2011 at 10:40 am

    Since I’m moving tomorrow, I’ll probably spend Christmas Day unpacking! Then I think I’ll take my dog to dinner. Since I don’t have family close by, the day isn’t such a big deal for me.

  • Mel S December 21, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    I’m heading back to my parents for Christmas this year, where as well as my Gran and my brother we will be joined for the first time by my brothers girlfriend!!

  • Lynn December 29, 2011 at 6:23 am

    I spen(t) Christmas celebrating my sister’s birthday (she’s a Christmas baby), we had a party for her and had a bunch of her friends as well as mine over (the older bunch of us mainly tried not to get into the way of the little monsters’ games)


  • IdentitySeeker December 29, 2011 at 8:40 am

    I planned on spending my Christmas day having a lovely braai (barbecue) with my family and friend but ended up spending it at home with my grandmother, reading a book and surfing the Internet. Hey! At least I got a good read out of it:) Thank you for the chance to win Half-Blood. Reading Daimon got me really excited for this series!:)


  • Pragya January 1, 2012 at 6:21 am

    Celebrated Christmas with family.
