My BBAW Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

This week, for Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I'm giving away a copy of James Scott Bell's new release, Try Darkness.

But you know what? It's book #2 in the Buchanan Series and why would anyone want to start with book #2?

Ok, you twisted my arm! You'll get Try Dying, the first book the series as well!

If you insist. You push too hard, dah-ling!

Yep...TWO books in this giveaway. These are near-new (because I read them) hardback books in great condition.

I appreciate book bloggers and book blog readers, and without our readers there would be no reason to blog about it. So this is me saying thanks to all of you!

To win this giveaway, leave a comment with your email address. AND in the comment name a book you've read recently that you really enjoyed. Notice "recently" is vague on purpose! ;o)

I will pick a winner on Thursday and email the winner. If I hear back from you, I'll get the books in the mail Friday morning. (If not, you'll have to wait til Monday because I'll be out of town.)

Oh and P.S. Sorry, but I can only ship to USA addresses.


  1. Yeah, for offering both books. I am one who series books in order! I just finished That's (not exactly) Amore by Tracey Bateman.

  2. Awesome ! Two for one giveaways are my favs. LOL!!!

    I just finished The Book of the Dead by Preston and Child and it was wonderful. I love their books, especially those in the Pendergast series.

  3. I just finished reading "Freshwater Road" upon the recommendation of my mom and I wasn't disappointed. It was a very good book with a compelling storyline.

  4. I am almost finished reading "Jesus for President" by Shane Claiborne. It has been very challenging and I really like it.

  5. Fun!! I've only read one book by James Scott Bell, but I've been wanting to read more. Thank you for giving me a chance to win these. :-)

    I really enjoyed the Mars Hill Classified series by Austin Boyd earlier this year. Christian fiction meets sci-fi and political thriller all in one. Very different but very well done.


  6. They sound like something I would enjoy. A book that I've read recently that I really enjoyed was The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett. By no means a new book but it was new to me.

  7. I just finished Twilight and am now reading New Moon -- working my way through th series!

  8. Oh, my! Hardcover even? COOL! Did you like them? Oh, and a book that I liked and recently read:

    Freefall, by Anna Levine

    (ARC, from First Look.)

  9. I just read 15 classics in 15 weeks as part of Jacqui Robbins Summer Challenge, and I must say I really enjoyed of those classics! I think 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth were my favorites. Treasure Island was also fun.

  10. Great giveaway for BBAW! A book I just finished is called Power in the Blood by Michael Listen. I thought it was unique and very well written. I should finish up Freezing Point by Karen Dionne today. It's more of a science/medical thriller and it is good, but if you're squeamish about rats, I wouldn't recommend it! :)

  11. well 300 sundays is what I just finished reading- not the usual book for me but inspriational and made me smile and laugh

  12. I recently read Kathleen Kent's The Heretic's Daughter, and it is lovely. I'm currently reading another that I'm really enjoying, though in a completely different way, and it's Written in Blood by Sheila Lowe.

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

  13. Please throw my name in the hat for this drawing.

    One of my favorite books of the year is Garth Stein's THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN. I am giving away a signed copy of it for BBAW at

  14. What a great giveaway! I'd love to win these books.

    I really quite enjoyed The Moviegoer by Walker Percy, which I finished in the last month. It was grand! So beautifully written!

  15. This comment has been removed by the author.

  16. Thanks! A contest sounds great!

    I really enjoyed the Luxe, I'm not into gossip... but it was really pretty good.

  17. This is an author that is new to me. I am thrilled that you are offering both books as I am another reader obsessed with reading a series in order :D
    A great book I have read recently is Sweetsmoke by David Fuller. A murder mystery, historical fiction and emotional drama all in one. I loved it.

  18. James Scott Bell is one author whose books I usually like. There was one so-so one, but his others I've read are super! So, thanks for the giveaway. Now, a title I've recently read and like: Dark Star by Creston Mapes. Sooo good. It's about a rock star who is on trial for killing his psychic! It's Christian Fiction, my favorite genre!

  19. I would love to win these two books! Thank you for including the first book, too. I hate reading books out of order!

    I just finished reading 14 by J.T. Ellison. All th Pretty Girls, which is the first book in the series, is also very good.
