 Tons of great blogs are participating in this hop, so be sure to check out what's being given away at each blog. You have a ton of chances to win some really great books! Most importantly...have fun! 

Here at Reading Lark we are offering up an ARC of Illuminate by Aimee Agresti! This giveaway is open only to residents of the US and Canada. 

Haven Terra is a brainy, shy high school outcast. But everything begins to change when she turns sixteen. Along with her best friend Dante and their quiet and brilliant classmate Lance, she is awarded a prestigious internship in the big city— Chicago—and is sent to live and work at a swanky and stylish hotel under the watchful eyes of a group of gorgeous and shockingly young-looking strangers: powerful and alluring hotel owner Aurelia Brown; her second-in-command, the dashing Lucian Grove; and their stunning but aloof staff of glamazons called The Outfit.

As Haven begins falling for Lucian, she discovers that these beautiful people are not quite what they seem. With the help of a mysterious book, she uncovers a network of secret passageways from the hotel’s jazz-age past that leads her to the heart of the evil agenda of Aurelia and company: they’re in the business of buying souls. Will they succeed in wooing Haven to join them in their recruitment efforts, or will she be able to thwart this devilish set’s plans to take the souls of her classmates on prom night at the hotel?

Illuminate is an exciting saga of a teen’s first taste of independence, her experience in the lap of luxury, and her discovery she may possess strength greater than she ever knew.

  19. First off I am not ashamed to say I love the cover! Especially how it looks like she has wings outlined on the wall. That might just be me seeing things though but it looks like it to me. Plus, don't get me wrong I love vamps, weres, and fae but this is a refreshing take on paranormal romance. Buying souls? That is very unique!

  35. Thanks for the giveaway. I prefer paranormal romance because of the worlds in paranormal, going somewhere that would in no way exist and beyond that the characters relationship has to go through obstacles that are so much grander and harder than any normal relationship that when they overcome those, it makes their romance that much stronger to me as the reader.

  36. I love any and all paranormal books.
