Book Giveaway: Iron Man 2 by Alexander Irvine

Anna and Hatchette Book Group are generously sponsoring this giveaway of 5 copies of Alexander Irvine's Iron Man 2.

About the Book:
"I am Iron Man." With those words, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark revealed his secret identity. Now a famous high-tech superhero, he uses his powers to protect mankind. Yet things are not going well for Tony Stark. The U.S. military demands control of the most powerful weapon on earth--the Iron Man suit. His beautiful new assistant has a strange, mysterious agenda while his best friend, Rhodey, has betrayed him. And Tony is hunted by a vengeful Russian criminal armed with a lethal technology that may be stronger than Tony's suit. But even as he fights his demons, the hero faces his greatest threat--one that no armor can defend against . . .

  1. I recommend "Becoming Alice: A Memoir" by Alice Rene. Alice tells her story about escaping the Nazis during World War II and her family's struggles in adjusting to their new lives in America. It's an engrossing story and I highly recommend it.

  3. I recommend Before I Fall by debut author Lauren Oliver. The story is unique and thought provoking. The experiences and transformation of the main character makes it pefect for the middle school and high school classroom. Can be used to commence dialouge with students conerncing issues important to them.

  4. I would recommend The Giver by Lois Lowry. The book is full of emotion and really makes one think "outside the box", so to speak.

  6. I'd recommend Vampire ACADEMY by Richelle Mead

  7. I enjoyed Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins!



  8. I would love to read this, and I follow.

  9. I actually recently read "Wish You Were Dead" by Todd Strasser. I totally enjoyed it and read through it like lightning. Even we older adults can read and relate, because all of the typical high school characters appear and there is someone we can each relate to. It's a "who is doing it" with a modern bloggy/cyberstalky twist. You'll keep guessing "whodunnit" 'til the very end!

  11. I would recommend:

    Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
    ~Awesome Romeo & Juliet type story

    Unwind by Neal Shusterman
    ~One of those set-in-the-future, really makes you think stories. Abortion is outlawed - instead parents can decide to have their teenagers unwound.

    The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
    ~If you like her Otherworld series, check out her Darkest Powers YA series. Same world - new characters & new situation. (Urban Fantasy - werewolves, witches, necromancers, demons.)

    Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
    ~Asteroid strike shifts the moon MUCH closer to Earth. This tells what happened after and how it effected everything.

    I follow. :0)
