When I traded for a number of ARCs a few months ago – my final trade – I was in a full-on reading mode at the time, fully committed to devouring books above all else. Then a few things derailed me from my goals in the book blogosphere. So I got behind. Way behind.
I got myself back on track, somewhat. But very recently some real life things have gotten in the way. And so my reading time has been cut short. Way short. So I’m likely only going to be reading the review books I’ve promised to review along with one or two must reads for the various challenges I’m participating in, like CLOCKWORK PRINCESS, et cetera.
And while I won’t be giving away any of the ARCs I received as gifts or those received from publishers, I will be giving away the ARCs I received through that final trade I did.
I’m still hoping to find a blogger friend I can just pass them along to, rather than hosting giveaways. But as I’ve been living in a self-imposed social media cave for the past few weeks, I haven’t had the time to reach out. And I don’t want too many more release dates to pass before I share these last few ARCs.
So, unless or until I reach out to a blogger or two, for the next couple of weeks I’ll be passing along these ARCs in giveaways either here or on The Annex.
And first up is SIEGE AND STORM by Leigh Bardugo, a book I have pre-ordered, but as I haven’t yet read the first book in the author’s The Grisha series I want to pass along this ARC so that someone who has can get the chance to read it just a bit earlier than its June release date.
The ARC itself looks to be read, though not by me, so I can’t confirm if there are missing pages or if there is any other damage.
This giveaway is open internationally, but only to those who have read the first book in the series already. After all, I’m giving this away so that someone can read it prior to release.
And for those who need a reminder of what will be in store for the characters in this second book in the series, here’s the description from Goodreads.
Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
