Best of 2011 Giveaway Hop



Welcome to The Best of 2011 Giveaway Hop.  This hop runs from December 27th to 31st and features the Best Books of 2011!

100 Blogs are each hosting a giveaway for their favorite reads of 2011.


I have read 35 books this year...so far. I still have a couple of days left and I think I'll be able to fit one more in before bringing in the new year. It was a tough choice, but I did select my all time favorite read for 2011.
 
I am giving away a copy of:

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 

by Richard Paul Evans

To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey seems like an ordinary 14-year-old. But Michael is anything but ordinary. He was born with special electrical powers. 

When Michael’s best friends, Ostin Liss and cheerleader Taylor Ridley, make an accidental discovery, the trio learns that there are other children with electric powers–and that someone, or some thing, is hunting them. After Michael’s mother is kidnapped, Michael will have to rely on his wits, powers and friends to combat the powerful Elgen and free his mother.



Awesomeness! This book sucked me in right from the beginning and I couldn't put it down. Of course I like YA adventures and this book had plenty. A clean read and fascinating characters, this book kept me turning pages. I would recommend it to all ages. My 15 year old son couldn't get enough of it when he started reading it. He recommended it to all of his friends and even to his bus driver. My parents (in their 60's) bought the audio version. Their reaction: 

Dad: "This is kind of scary."

Mom: "Do you want me to turn it off? We can listen to something else."

Dad: "No. Put in the next cd."

Hmmmm. I wouldn't describe it as "scary". Definitely intense in certain scenes, but not "scary." But my parents enjoyed it, and even bought a copy for my 19 year old nephew who blew through it in 2 days.

  23. How nice your parents wanted to "read" the same book as you and your son. I had a co-worker who's 67 year old husband read the Harry Potter books to have something to talk about with his grandkids.
