Book Giveaway: Witchy Books

After watching The Good Witch movies, I've been in an extra witchy mood. And I just so happen to have a couple of witchy books in my giveaway stack. This giveaway is for a copy of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and ONCE A WITCH by Carolyn MacCullough. There will be two winners. The first winner will get to pick witch book. Hehe. The second winner will get the other book. Both are gently used.

"Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantaion, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything."


"Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin's magic never showed up. Now seventeen, Tamsin attends a boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a long lost family heirloom for him. The search - and the stranger - will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant."

I think being a witch would be fun, but being a witch descended from a line of witches? Pass, thanks. That sounds like brutal family dynamics.

Tiger Holland said...

I actually like the sound of brutal family dynamics...I'd love to be a genetic born-witch, but I wouldn't want to be the kind who had to learn spells just from books. I am much more physical!

Uhmmm. So I just posted with an answer to the question... but then it froze and I think I lost it. Anyhow- I'd rather be a natural born witch. Pranks on siblings would take on a whole new meaning!!

I'd love to be a witch! It would be awesome casting spells!

I don't think I would like to be a witch, especially growing up one, its difficult to navigate through the early years as it is.

I think it would be cool to be a witch. I always think of the tv show Charmed! They were cool witches:)

Yes, I would like to be a witch. But only a good witch because even though evil witches might rule for a while, good always seems to kick them in the face...or a house falls on them.

Oooo I haven't read either of those yet.

I think being a witch would have both good and bad aspects, but I'd have to say the good would outweigh the bad. So yes, I'd like to be a witch :)

I would want to be a witch because the idea of having "powers" is exciting. It would be great to be able to use those powers to help others, and myself. There's a little room for selfishness, right? Hehe.

I would totally love to be a witch ;) Even if it meant being a witch in a long line of witches full of family disfunction. Heh. Because, well, witches have the power to shape the world how they want it...no matter how small the actual shaping is. Make sense?

Woot! I actually remembered to enter a contest! Either of these books would be great :) They're both on my tbr!

Brodie said...

Ooh I would love to be entered if this is open internationally, please! :)

Hmm, I would say yes! Provided I was a witch of the light working for good intentions rather than bad. Don't want any warts on my nose from bad karma or anything ;) But it'd be awesome to have supernatural abilities and be able to do the 'extraordinary'.

I guess it would depend on what kind of witch I was. Sabrina never had an easy time, and it totally ruined Holly's life (from Wicked). Surely there's a happy witch out there somewhere though.

Thanks for the contest! Hm, I think having witch-like powers--like invisibility, speed, performing spells no one else can--would be pretty awesome, though I don't think I would call myself a witch. Maybe something cooler and with a less derogatory connotation, like...a fairy. LOL! So I guess you can say I would love to be a fairy with witch powers. ;)
