a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. I have always liked the story of Odysseus and the Cyclope.

  2. AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much for this giveaway Sierra and congrats on 2 years! The Hades/Persephone myth has always been a favorite of mine which might explain why I loved this book so much and would be beyond thrilled to have a signed finished copy:):)

  3. I loved Everneath, so this is a fabulous prize! I liked Abandon by Meg Cabot too.

  4. Happy Blogoversary!  I chose Persephone's story, as that is the only original I recall reading.  This current trend of retelling of stories based on mythology is new to me, but I love the cover of Everneath, it is so beautiful, and I have read good things about it and would love to give this genre twist a try.  Thank you for sharing the joy with this fun giveaway opportunity.   

  5. I can't enter as I live in England, but huge congrats on two years! And good luck to everyone who enters.(:

  6. You know me so well, Sierra -- of course I want this! :')

    CONGRATULATIONS ON TWO YEARS, Sierra! That's so amazing how you've already made it to that point -- blogging is no easy task, and it's no secret to anyone who can see your blog on my blog roll that I adore yours! <3 I seriously hope that you'll be blogging for another couple years at least so we can reach these milestones together.

    Mimi (who loves you very much!) <3

  7. I am thinking the  Persephone / Hades myth would be my favorite. There are others too. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  8. Bookish in a BoxJune 28, 2012 at 6:12 PM

    Nobody's Princess and Nobody's Prize by Esther Friesner are pretty great (they're about Helen of Troy before she becomes THE Helen of Troy)

  9. Happy blogoversary!!! :) I love the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (though I need to finish it!), especially the first book, The Lightning Thief!

  10. I like the (Greek?) story about the nymph and the huntsman who fall in love. I'm not sure what the story is called, but that's my favorite. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I'll be sure and come back to read more of your amazing reviews!

  11. Woo hoo, thanks for including MX in there. Me and my people appreciate it ;D

    And my favorite is the Persephone Myth, she's a badass.

  12. I would say that right now my favorite mythology retelling is either the Starcrossed series or The Goddess Test series. Oh, and I love Percy Jackson.

  13. I like all sorts of mythology retelling, but I'm a little worn out from greek gods and myths.  So anything but!

  14. I like Painted Blind by Michelle A. Hansen.

  15. Happy 2 Year Blogoversary!!
    My favorite story in mythology is Medusa. Not sure why I just love e story. My favorite is Greek mythology but I definitely like Roman and Egyptian mainly because they are all interesting. 

  16. Hmmm.. I haven't read much mythology retelling books... Though I have read Red Pyramid, I didn't like it that much. I'll just read more mythology related books in the future. :)
