Winner is Linda @ The Optimistic Pessimist blog

I adore the fact that I live in an area surrounded by some amazing YA authors and one of them is the most genuinely kind and amaze balls C.J. Omololu. Her newest novel TRANSCENDENCE was released in June and now I have a beautiful signed copy to giveaway this month. Just read the synopsis and you will be hooked then enter the giveaway at the end of the post. Good Luck!!


 When a visit to the Tower of London triggers an overwhelmingly real vision of a beheading that occurred centuries before, Cole Ryan fears she is losing her mind. A mysterious boy, Griffon Hall, comes to her aid, but the intensity of their immediate connection seems to open the floodgate of memories even wider.
As their feelings grow, Griffon reveals their common bond as members of the Akhet—an elite group of people who can remember past lives and use their collected wisdom for the good of the world. But not all Akhet are altruistic, and a rogue is after Cole to avenge their shared past. Now in extreme danger, Cole must piece together clues from many lifetimes. What she finds could ruin her chance at a future with Griffon, but risking his love may be the only way to save them both.
Full of danger, romance, and intrigue, Transcendence breathes new life into a perpetually fascinating question: What would you do with another life to live?

Now, doesn't this book just grab you. I know I was hooked and I know that it just screams to be on your bookshelves. Yet, if you don't already have it you need not worry because I have a great opportunity for you. I have a gorgeous signed copy of TRANSCENDENCE by C.J. Omololu that is eager to get into somebody's beloved bookshelf. It is screaming "put me on your bookshelves so that everyone will be envious. I am entertaining and amazing!" Now how can you resist? You simply cannot. So, the best thing for you to do is enter in my simple giveaway by signing up

We would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
