Spotlight & Giveaway: Mickey Bolitar series

Reading Lark has been given the opportunity to spotlight the Mickey Bolitar series by Harlan Coben. We are also excited to be able to offer up TWO prize packs for two of our lucky readers to win. We'd like to thank Penguin for providing the books for this giveaway and shipping the prizes. Giveaway details and rules can be found at the bottom of this post.

About Shelter (Book #1):

The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback!

Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he's met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

About Seconds Away (Book #2):

When tragedy strikes close to home, Mickey Bolitar and his loyal new friends—sharp-witted Ema and the adorkably charming Spoon—find themselves at the center of a terrifying mystery involving the shooting of their friend Rachel. Now, not only does Mickey have to continue his quest to uncover the truth about the Abeona Shelter, the Butcher of Lodz and the mysterious death of his father, he needs to figure out who shot Rachel—no matter what it takes.

Mickey has always been ready to sacrifice everything to help the people he loves. But with danger just seconds away, how can he protect them when he’s not even sure who—or what—he’s protecting them from?

  1. Harlan Coben has been a favorite author of mine for many years. I always recommend his adult books to my reluctant readers. I'm so happy to be able to recommend these YA books, and I'd love to have another copy for my library!

  2. I would love to win these books because I love YA Paranormal Fiction with mystery. I want to know who and what Mickey's father is, and more about why Mickey's girlfriend disappeared, and what paranormal creature she us or powers she has. Thanks for the awesome giveaway Larks!

  3. I want to solve the mystery too, that is why I want to win these books.

  4. I absolutely love the cover of book 1. I keep telling everyone that. Also, I haven't read any of Coben's books, so I think that these would be a great place to start doing so.

  5. because i just recently got seconds away and i would love to get the first book! thanks :)

  6. Aw man wish I could enter this giveaway. Love Harlen Coben. I need to move haha :)
