How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest (My August Listens)

August was a sparse but incredible listening month for me.

Now I have these Oct pub date ARCs to give away to those who've read some of the books I listened to this month.

The ARCs:

To win, let me know which of my August audiobooks you've read/listened to. You get one entry per book.

My August Listens:

Meg Cabot's contemporary take on the Hades/Persephone myth. A different tone in this series...more serious than her other stuff but no less enjoyable.

Two sister werewolf hunters, one bound by a calling, the other by duty. A great twist on Little Red Riding Hood, and there are a couple great plot twists in it too.

Magic and motor cars combine for this Steampunk-ish Fantasy that will have you guessing the whole way through.


Men only live to twenty-five and women only til twenty in this Dystopian where the heroine tries to escape her gilded cage as a polygamist's wife.

To be honest, I finished the last CD of this one yesterday morning (Sep 1st), but I was so short on listens this month, I decided to include it. An amazing read that definitely deserves the Printz honor. I especially loved the brief comments from the Pagoda.

Finally, the one I picked as my favorite this month (for Road Trip Wednesday). I was a little slow to warm to this one, but around a third of the way through I fell in love.

I have an extra ARC of the third book in this series (out in September), if anyone entering is interested.

Let me know which ones you've read. One entry per book. 

(International entries welcome. I'll  draw names next Wednesday morning.)


  1. I've read ABANDON and WITHER.

    as to the ARCs, I'd be excited for FROST. I just read STORK and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Although, the cover for CARRIER OF THE MARK is very intriguing.

  2. I've read none. OMG. Fail, fail, fail.

    OT: I received the ARCs I won from you in the mail yesterday. Thank you!

  3. I haven't read any of these. I haven't read nearly as much as I wanted to this summer.

  4. I'm ashamed to admit I've had ARCs of Abandon and The Scorpio Races for a while and haven't gotten to them yet! Fail!

  5. Dang it, I haven't read any of those!

  6. I've only read Sisters Red and I loved it. It was really great story about sisters.

  7. Abandon - LOVED it. I want her to publish the next one, er...NOW.

    That's my only one!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Ooh! I've read Sisters Red, Wither, And Please Ignore Vera Dietz. Those are some incredible arcs you have! :) I can't wait to read The Faerie Ring and The Scorpio Races! :)


    You're awesome!

  9. I've read none of them. NONE.

    But I am obsessed with that ARC of the Scorpio Races. Dying for it, actually. Womp womp.

    Great giveaway! You rule.

  10. I have read only Wither. It was very interesting book and I can't wait for the second book of this series.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  11. That's a lot of books in one month! I've read Wither, Chime (one of my faves!), Sisters Red, The Scorpio Races, and Abandon. I really want to read The Faerie Ring and Vera Dietz.

  12. I agree with Elana, that's a ton of books! I haven't read any of them, but I'm currently reading Wither.

    (I'm in your YA group by the way, nice to meet you! I'm a little late with my introductions, but better late than never!) :)

  13. I want to read a lot of these but have yet to pick them up.
