ARC Giveaway! The Testing and Plague in the Mirror

The Testing ARC Giveaway
Yey, I’m excited to announce my first ARC giveaway! And for this special occasion, I actually have two ARCs to give out *happy dance*. A big thank you to Krys of Bibliopunkk for letting me have a copy of The Testing and Candlewick Press for Plague in the Mirror!

The Testing ARC Giveaway

Description: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Isn’t that what they say? But how close is too close when they may be one in the same?

The Seven Stages War left much of the planet a charred wasteland. The future belongs to the next generation’s chosen few who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing—their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career.

Cia Vale is honored to be chosen as a Testing candidate; eager to prove her worthiness as a University student and future leader of the United Commonwealth. But on the eve of her departure, her father’s advice hints at a darker side to her upcoming studies–trust no one.

But surely she can trust Tomas, her handsome childhood friend who offers an alliance? Tomas, who seems to care more about her with the passing of every grueling (and deadly) day of the Testing. To survive, Cia must choose: love without truth or life without trust.

I gave 5 stars to The Testing, and so if you think that description is interesting, you should definitely be excited!

Plague in the Mirror ARC Giveaway

Description: In a sensual paranormal romance, a teen girl’s doppelgänger from 1348 Florence lures her into the past in hopes of exacting a deadly trade.

It was meant to be a diversion — a summer in Florence with her best friend, Liam, and his travel-writer mom, doing historical research between breaks for gelato. A chance to forget that back in Vermont, May’s parents, and all semblance of safety, were breaking up. But when May wakes one night sensing someone in her room, only to find her ghostly twin staring back at her, normalcy becomes a distant memory. And when later she follows the menacing Cristofana through a portale to fourteenth-century Florence, May never expects to find safety in the eyes of Marco, a soulful painter who awakens in her a burning desire and makes her feel truly seen. The wily Cristofana wants nothing less of May than to inhabit each other’s lives, but with the Black Death ravaging Old Florence, can May’s longing for Marco’s touch be anything but madness? Lush with atmosphere both passionate and eerie, this evocative tale follows a girl on the brink of womanhood as she dares to transcend the familiar — and discovers her sensual power.

Publication Date: June 11th 2013

Now, these will have to be US only because of lovely shipping costs, and they will be two separate giveaways so you don’t have to worry about getting one you aren’t as excited about. You are welcome to enter both however and if I happen to pull the same winner for both, that’s just fine.
