Armchair BEA--giveaway time!

Today is giveaway day at Armchair BEA! Edited to add--the winners have now been picked; Sabrina won Sylo, and Claire won K. of L. W.  Thanks all of you for stopping by to enter!

I'm sort of relieved I'm not actually at BEA--I am trying hard to keep the number of books on hand to a manageable pile, and I know that when I am BEA or other place where there are ARCs of forthcoming books to be had I begin to behave irrationally (more so than usual).   That being said, I've been busily working through the list of Armchair BEA-ers giving away books today....

And I have two ARCs to giveaway myself, which I carefully picked to have appeal beyond my regular Middle Grade niche!  I'm going to pick a different winner for each book, so let me know when you leave your comment which you'd like.

Sylo, by D.J. MacHale (Razorbill, July 2013) "They came from the sky parachuting out of military helicopters to invade Tucker Pierce’s idyllic hometown on Pemberwick Island, Maine.

They call themselves SYLO and they are a secret branch of the U.S. Navy. SYLO’s commander, Captain Granger, informs Pemberwick residents that the island has been hit by a lethal virus and must be quarantined. Now Pemberwick is cut off from the outside world.

Tucker believes there’s more to SYLO’s story. He was on the sidelines when the high school running back dropped dead with no warning. He saw the bizarre midnight explosion over the ocean, and the mysterious singing aircraft that travel like shadows through the night sky. He tasted the Ruby—and experienced the powers it gave him—for himself."

The Kingdom of Little Wounds, by Susann Cokal (Bloomsbury, October 2013) "On the eve of Princess Sophia’s wedding, the Scandinavian city of Skyggehavn prepares to fete the occasion with a sumptuous display of riches: brocade and satin and jewels, feasts of sugar fruit and sweet spiced wine. Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness creeps through the palace halls. A mysterious illness plagues the royal family, threatening the lives of the throne’s heirs, and a courtier’s wolfish hunger for the king’s favors sets a devious plot in motion. Here in the palace at Skyggehavn, things are seldom as they seem — and when a single errant prick of a needle sets off a series of events that will alter the course of history, the fates of seamstress Ava Bingen and mute nursemaid Midi Sorte become irrevocably intertwined with that of mad Queen Isabel. As they navigate a tangled web of palace intrigue, power-lust, and deception, Ava and Midi must carve out their own survival any way they can."

So just leave a comment to enter (making sure that I can find you if you win), by midnight next Thursday, June 7th, and please let me know which of these you'd like!
