Giveaway: The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong


This week isn't an ARC giveaway and it's not even a recently released YA book.  But it is the first book in a great YA series that has been generating buzz since it first came out.  I'm not sure how I ended up with my copy (I think I bought it) but I really want to start reading the series and the only way to do that is to give this copy away so I will read it before the end of the giveaway.

This week's giveaway is The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong.  So if you are one of the few that has never read this book - this giveaway is for you (or if you want to re-read it, or have your own copy to keep)  It released at the back in 2008 from HarperTeen and I have a nice trade paperback copy, gently read but still in wonderful condition. It's the first in the Darkest Powers series.  Haven't heard of the book yet (then where have you been)?  Here is some more information:

After years of frequent moves following her mother’s death, Chloe Saunders’s life is finally settling down. She is attending art school, pursuing her dreams of becoming a director, making friends, meeting boys. Her biggest concern is that she’s not developing as fast as her friends are. But when puberty does hit, it brings more than hormone surges. Chloe starts seeing ghosts–everywhere, demanding her attention. After she suffers a breakdown, her devoted aunt Lauren gets her into a highly recommended group home.

At first, Lyle House seems a pretty okay place, except for Chloe’s small problem of fearing she might be facing a lifetime of mental illness. But as she gradually gets to know the other kids at the home–charming Simon and his ominous, unsmiling brother Derek, obnoxious Tori, and Rae, who has a “thing” for fire–Chloe begins to realize that there is something that binds them all together, and it isn’t your usual “problem kid” behaviour. And together they discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home either…

Rules for the giveaway:  Simple, just comment and leave an email address where to contact you.  Nothing more.  No additional entries, just keeping this one completely simple.  Open to the US/Canada only.  Ends 7/20/2010.

International - hang on a few weeks - I'm probably going to do a giveaway just for you.
Not a YA fan - also hang on, I have some other books on the tbr pile to giveaway over the next few weeks.

It sounds like a good book to read, but from what you said, maybe a little motivation is required! (With beautiful weather outside and so many summer fun events to do....reading is put aside). I have time to read outside too, this summer, so please enter me in your giveaway.

Thank you for hosting The Summoning giveaway.
