GIVEAWAY: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

I discovered Passenger by Alexandra Bracken in the weeks leading up to BEA last May and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it’s release ever since.  As I said in this video, two of the main factors that really drew me to this book are 1) time travel and 2) pirates.  I had been hesitant to read the ARC I waited in line for (for hours I might add) because I heard that an updated draft had already been completed that would make many changes to the book’s final published story.  I decided to table it and wait until I could read the book Alexandra Bracken intended the reader to read.  Little did I know that an updated copy would be showing up at my doorstep a couple of months early!  Passenger is my most anticipated read of 2016 and I feel so blessed to be afforded the opportunity to check it out in 2015.  But the most exciting part of this story is that Disney Hyperion is also allowing me to giveaway a copy of Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger to one lucky blog reader!

If you’re like me and you feel like you can’t wait until January 5th for the official release, Disney has been kind enough to provide us with an e-book sampler to tide us over until then.

About the Book

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles, but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods–a powerful family in the Colonies–and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, his passenger, can find. In order to protect her, Nick must ensure she brings it back to them–whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home… forever.

GIVEAWAY: Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale By Wendy Toliver

082714_WorldofWeirTour_Phase1

Some of my favorite types of stories are fairy tales so I have been loving that retellings have grown popular in past few years.  And when it comes to fairy tales, Disney is the ultimate master of preserving classics and piecing together a story that is both accessible, enjoyable, and an instant classic which is why I am so excited to be a part of their Fairy Tale 2.0!  The three books Disney Hyperion is celebrating on this blog tour are A Whole New World (an Aladdin retelling where Jafar finds the lamp first), A Frozen Heart (the backstory of Elsa and Anna told in alternating perspectives), and the book I’ll be focusing on, Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver (which tells the popular character Red’s story while she wasn’t on Once Upon a Time).  If you follow the #FairyTale2pt0 hashtag, you’ll be able to enter giveaways for the other books as well!  Here is the synopsis to Red’s Untold Tale:

Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.
