New Contest---Firsts in a Series!!

I've had series on the mind lately, so what better way to celebrate my love of series than with a contest?!

So this month I am giving away two books which are the first books in 2 great series.

The first book is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (PB)

And the second book is The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong(PB)


I'm sure these are books that are familiar to most, but if you haven't read them then now is your chance.

  66. I loooove City of Bones! Such a good book. But I already have it and I got it signed back in March when Cassandra Clare was touring. So, I wouldn't want to be entered for that book.

    But I'd love to enter for The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong because I haven't read that book yet. I've heard good things about that series so it would be good to start from the beginning!
