July 2012: Month in Review + Book of the Month Giveaway

Hey everyone!

It's been a slow month at A Reader of Fictions. I'm still behind on my book challenge and I haven't had quite as many reviews going up either, both because I'm behind and because some of my reviews are waiting to go up for Dystopian August. Look forward to that. There's going to be an epic giveaway associated with it, and that's going live in just a couple of hours.

Make sure you scroll through the whole post, or you'll miss a fabulous giveaway!

Only 18 books! That's pretty wimpy. Next month, though, will not be wimpy. It will be BRAWNY. Be prepared, guys!

Book of the Month Announcement & Giveaway:
Every month, I select one book that I read and loved over the past month to feature and giveaway. These giveaways are always international (yeah!) and come with easy entries. I read several amazing books this month, so choosing which one to feature was tough. I'm going with one I received a physical review copy of (because I like to give back to the publisher) and one I just finished reading, so I'm still kind of obsessed with it. This month's book is Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas!

Throne of Glass is a marvelous fantasy novel in the same vein as Tamora Pierce, Kristin Cashore or Robin LaFevers. I loved it and I think you guys will too!

Thank you so much for the giveaway, and suggesting I should read one of your reviews! I don't like reading reviews before I read books, but sometimes I don't discover and interesting book unless I do read a review.

Haha, thanks for commenting! I don't generally like to force people to do so, but, well, I like it when they do and a little incentive never hurt anyone, right?

I don't read reviews for books I plan to read either. I like reading them for things I have read or have no intention of reading. Sometimes I change my mind and sometimes I just laugh at the craziness I escaped.

Lol! Thanks. Sometimes I feel like a monster when ranting in the GFC one, but I hate having to pick new winners because the first ones tried to cheat. I WANT people to win!

I haven't bought a book since I got home, but I might have to with this one as it just sounds too awesome and I can't figure out if my library will get it or not. Stupid library system.

Books usually show up in my library catalog pretty swiftly, but the actual books take a while. I am sure you'll enjoy this one. You never know, you could win a copy, but then you'd have to wait.

OR you could move to Atlanta and borrow my copy. ;)

Hey now, I'm working on it! I'll probably get there eventually :P Yeah, we'll see what I decide as far as getting my hands on the book.

Haha, I mean, obvi, I want you to find employment. I just want that employment to be here. ;)

Me too, actually. I'm still in the running for the Roswell job I applied to ages ago so I'm hoping something may come of that one way or another soon.

Ooooh! *crosses fingers*

I'm rooting for you, whatever that's worth!
