Giveaway Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout & #HeroineTourney Ramble Part II


UPDATE:
Wow, I got lots of entries in this giveaway and I really wish I could give you ALL copies of Half-Blood!<3 Sadly, I can't do that, but here's what I am going to do though:

I'm throwing in yet another copy of the book and extending the giveaway until tomorrow.
So: THREE winners, contest open until Sunday night. Go!;)

**********

Happy New Years Eve everyone!

I guess I should have prepared a End of The Year post, but things have been a bit hectic around here lately, and I'm not talking just about the Heroine Tourney. 

Anyway, Alex didn't win the match against Katniss yesterday, but she still got a lot of love and votes. The Half Blood Legion did a great job once again, spreading the word about the match and we did won lots of friends, Alex won lots of new readers and JLA lots of fans. It's been fun! <3

Check out Jennifer L. Armentrout's blog  to see all the teasers she offered as incentives for our votes: from Pure (The Covenant Series #2), Obsidian, Onyx (Lux Series #1, #2) and Cursed. 

Now, some of you may ask WTH is all the fuss about. Well, here's the scoop: 

The awesome girls from YA Sisterhood organized this event called YA Heroine Tourney. Basically, it's a competition between all our favorite heroines from YA books. It's all about letting people know about some of the best YA series, praising our old favorites and having lots of fun. You can check out the official post to get more details. 

And Alex is the heroine in The Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. In JLA's words, "Alexandria 'Alex' Andros is a relatively new character to the YA World. She made her debut in Oct. 2011 and most won't see her again until April 2012. Not many got to know her. But some did and decided that she was a worthy opponent in the YA Heroine Tourney." And I chose to support her because of all the heroines I've read about this year, I liked her the best. She's tough, cool, kickbutt, feisty and gets the HOTTEST guys. Here's the official blurb:



Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published October 18th 2011
by Spencer Hill Press

Goodreads / Official Website

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Gods, awesome powers, kickbutt characters, lots of wit and hot guys. What else could you ask for?;)


If you didn't have a chance to start this series yet, I'm giving away 2 copies of Half-Blood. A paperback copy for International readers and an e-book for US readers. 

Giveaway ends Jan. 6th 2012.

  11. Started slow and ended...worse. I had to force myself to read the first half because nothing happened. I thought I'd stick with it because it had to pick up at some point. Unfortunately, it didn't. There's a lot of talk about the danger of offending the pures, but that's about all we got to see, lots of talk and no action, and that applies to the entire book.
