Appease the Fairy, Please

Last night the Publishing Fairy dropped by to whine about how I've been ignoring her lately. To keep the peace (and prevent her from cursing my next release) I'm giving her today's post and the chance to grant a BookWish* for one of my readers.

If you'd like to be the one for whom the wand waves, in comments to this post name a book you've just read that you really enjoyed (or if you haven't read anything enjoyable recently, just toss your name in the hat) by midnight EST tonight, July 17th, 2013. I'll choose one name at random from everyone who participates and grant the winner a BookWish. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.

*A BookWish is any book of the winner's choice available for order online and that costs up to a maximum of $30.00 U.S. dollars (I'll cover any additional shipping costs involved.)

  2. I am currently reading a wonderful book by Laura Dillow called, "Calm My Anxious Heart". It is a beautifl book written for women that really gives a new perspective on life!

  3. Gena Showalter's 'Last Kiss Goodnight' was thoroughly enjoyable. So was Kristen Painter's 'Out for Blood'. Today I ordered Larry Correia's 'Monster Hunter Legion' and Rick Riordan's 'The Mark of Athena' for my Kindle and I expect to really enjoy both of those. Life's too short to read books I don't enjoy. =o)

    I read "Welcome to Bordertown" during 4th of July weekend.
    I loved revisiting the world, a favorite of mine as a teenager.
    It made me feel sixteen again with the urge to my hair into a wispy, messy cut and put in blue streaks.

  5. I just read "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek" for my book club and was blown away by this masterful piece of nonfiction. On the fiction front, "So Cold the River" by Michael Koryta was a great read.

    Inferno by Dan Brown and before that, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I'm half way through my summer re-read of all the Darkyn novels. Always something new....

  11. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë. Great story that gave me much to think about.

  12. I just finished "Wolf in Shadow" by John Lambshead -- a really interesting London-set urban fantasy with very little romance (for once). Still reading "The Arrivals" by Melissa Marr.

  13. A Prince to be Feared: the love story of Vlad Dracula by Mary Lancaster. It's historical fiction centred about the real historical personage behind the vampire myth. Beautifully crafted story.
    The author also writes paranormal (vampire) romances under the name Marie Treanor.

  14. Sweet Revenge, the first in Zoe Archer's new series, Nemesis, Unlimited. I so totally loved this book...the premise, the plot, the characters. I want a Jack Dalton of my very own...sigh.

  15. I just finished reading Thieves' Quarry, the second book in the Thieftaker series by D. B. Jackson. It was excellent - I think I liked it even better than the first one.

    I'm currently reading One Sweet Ride by Jaci Burton. Her Play by Play series books are a comfort read for me.

  17. I just finished "A Timely Vision" by Joyce and Jim Lavene. The protagonist of this murder mystery has a psychic gift for finding things. A great read!

  18. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I just finished it and loved it.

  19. The Lavender Garden by Lucinda Riley was perfect for the summer.

  20. I really liked Eloisa James's Once Upon A Tower (though the Rapunzel aspect is pretty subtle).

    I finished The Twelfth Enchantment by David Liss yesterday and am now half way through The Lost Recipe for Happiness by Barbara O'Neal. Both books recommended by you on the Disenchanted blog. Enjoyed Enchantment but not as much as I'm enjoying Recipe. The food sounds delicious, thank goodness she tells you how to cook the dishes!

  24. Just finished SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi. I know, I know, it was published AGES ago, but school and school and school got in the way. Let me just say...it was worth the wait. And I completely swooned over Adam.

  26. I just finished Kresley Cole's latest book MacRieve. Wow! I read it in one day - I could not put it down. The two main characters had me laughing with them as well as aching with their hurt. Good times, good writing. :)

  27. I'm reading Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl" and I'm loving it so far.

  28. I just read Inferno by Dan Brown. Only thanks to the movies Tom Hanks is the only person I could imagine playing Robert Langdon.

  29. Finished "The Shining Girls" and, oh, was it good. Though I did find the ending rather abrupt, I'd still recommend it.

  32. I'm currently reading Ben Aaronovich's 'Rivers of London' series. It's a fantastic urban fantasy/mystery series. They're The Dresden Files in London, with a multi-racial hero, and lots of interesting UK history smoothly intertwined with great plots. But #4 isn't releasing in the US until next year :(
