Book Giveaway: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

This week my creative juices are dried-up, crushed, depressed--or something. I've got nothing in my brain to blog about. Since I've got nothing for you to read, how about a book to read? I've got a copy of Brodi Ashton's Everneath just waiting for a new home.

To enter to win, all you have to do is leave a comment, (make sure you leave an e-mail address so that I can contact you if you win). It's that easy. Tell your friends about it too. That won't give you any more chances to win, sorry, but I would appreciate it.

I have to admit, I bought Everneath last February with a B&N gift card my husband gave me for Valentine's Day. I chose that book based on advertising hyp and the cover--I loved the cover. But I didn't do my research. Everneath is not the kind of book I generally read. I'm guessing it's because of the genre that I wasn't pulled in. Frankly, I don't have the time to read a book that doesn't captivate me--unless I'm doing a review (which I haven't done many lately). The book is practically brand new and I'm sure there is a reader out there that will enjoy a retelling of the Persephone myth and would like a free copy.

So enter to win--leave a comment. I'd love to hear whether it's just me, or do others of you out there start a book and not finish it, not because it's not a good book, just not a good book for you?


  1. Oh, sign me up for a chance to win! Sounds like my kind of story...

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I already have a copy, but I'm so sad for you that you couldn't get into it! EVERNEATH is one of my favorite books. I cried almost all the way through it. Which doesn't really sound all that laudable, but people dealing with death gets to me. In EVERNEATH, Nikki must deal with her own "death"-both the one she experienced six months ago and the one that's coming for her. She can't even tell anyone where she's been or that she's leaving again. If I ever figure out how to get half as much emotion into my own writing, I'll be happy.

    Anyway, thought I'd pop in and just let everyone know why the book is so popular. Certainly not everyone will like every book, but EVERNEATH is well worth the effort to find out if it speaks to you.

  3. Thanks for sharing your feelings on this book. Perhaps I should have tried harder to get into it--kind of like I have to when reading the old classics, because they always rewarded me in the end. I guess right now I'm so strapped for time, I just don't have the patience to read a book that doesn't pull me in immediately. Maybe at a later date.

  4. I haven't read the book yet, and I would LOVE a chance to win it. Thanks so much for the giveaway! :)
