Because this is National Reading Month, I thought I'd center this freebie around a literary line that makes me laugh: I picture dirt and trees and maps and then a paper doily with an upturned pinky. I can't help but…
If you haven’t already read Cress, stop everything you’re doing (well, okay, I guess you can keep breathing) and go read it now. (You can read my review of it here.)
I loved this book so much, I wanted to give one of you the chance to read it, too.
Here’s how you can win a free copy of Cress for your ereader:
Congrats to our winner: Lisa! Hope you love it as much as I did 🙂

For those type A-people, you can post a comment about: If aliens did invade, what is your survival plan?
With us today is S.M. Anderson, who’s stopping by on her blog tour for a short Q&A about her book, Copied, and a digital giveaway!
Here’s the book blurb about Copied:
Adopted off the black market, Alexander Mitchell, has no idea his DNA is copyrighted and property of military weapons giant Texacom Defense. Nor that his DNA is being used to develop an army of clones. When the company discovers he was not properly disposed of 17 years ago, they send an assassin copy, BETA23, to terminate Xan and cover it up.
After he narrowly escapes BETA23’s first attempt, Xan teams up with Lacey, a genetically engineered genius he’s surprised to find common ground with— only they’re awkward together. Half of the time she stares at Xan like the science project he is and the other half…let’s just say Xan can’t keep his eyes off her lips.
When they manage to capture a company copy by luck and sheer stupidity on Xan’s part, Lacey is determined to see the good in their prisoner to the point she believes BETA23 can be persuaded to give them the intelligence they need to keep the company forever off Xan’s back. Xan’s not sure if he can trust the darker version of himself, not when it means gambling with the lives of his family and the possibility of losing Lacey.
To enter in the giveaway, post a comment below. The giveaway begins on Monday, Dec. 16th and closes 12 pm EST on Sunday, Dec. 22nd. I will use a random number generator–the corresponding blog commenter will be the winner of the digital copy.

Congratulations to Jill, our winner!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone is the first in a trilogy. The second is Days of Blood and Starlight. The third, Dreams of Gods and Monsters, releases next spring.
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”, she speaks many languages – not all of them human – and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
