"Girls Who Could Definitely Kick My Butt" ARC Giveaway

I love books with strong female protagonists. My reviews will prove that over and over...and over. Yet, what's even better is a girl who's tough and flawed. Someone real. No cyborgs, please!

So in honor of my love for kick-butt heroines, I've decided to do a "Girls Who Could Definitely Kick My Butt" ARC Giveaway. I have three awesome books to make up this package deal.

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Evie's always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she's falling for a shape-shifter, and she's the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours.
But Evie's about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. So much for normal.

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris- the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.
Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend - but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?

Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda
There is nothing to fear but fear itself...and Billi SanGreal.
As the youngest and only female member of the Knights Templar, Bilquis SanGreal grew up knowing she wasn't normal. Instead of hanging out at the mall or going on dates, she spends her free time training as a soldier in her order's ancient battle agianst the Unholy.
Billi's cloistered life is blasted apart when her childhood friend, Kay, returns from Jerusalem, gorgeous and with a dangerous chip on his shoulder. He's ready to reclaim his place in Billi's life, but she's met someone new: amber-eyed Michael, who seems to understand her like no one else, effortlessly claiming a stake in her heart.
But the Templars are called to duty before Billi can enjoy the pleasant new twist to her life. One of the order's ancient enemies has resurfaced, searching for a treasure that the Templars have protected for hundreds of years - a cursed mirror powerful enough to kill all London's firstborn. To save her city from catastrophe, Billi will have to put her heart aside and make sacrifices greater than any of the Templars could have imagined.

The women that lead the stories in each of these books are brave, strong, self-confident...well, mostly, and in general just kick butt!! In the spirit of rockin' sisterhood, I want to pass these along to inspire other readers.

  5. Love the name of your contest! I just read and loved Sisters Red, but I guess I'm most excited about Paranormalcy. Thanks for the contest.


  6. I'm most looking forward to Paranormalcy, though they all look really good. I've noticed that almost all of my favorite books have strong female protagonists (Katniss from The Hunger Games, Katsa from Graceling, Rose from Vampire Academy... the list continues!)
