"Hello, Jack! I've heard all about you! And your teeth!" "My...teeth?"

 Today's book has just come out. On December 7th in fact. It has been mentioned on a few blogs before, which is how I came upon it.

 The book is titled Annabeth's War and is written by Jessica Greyson. You can find her blog HERE!! (She always has wonderful posts up.)

 Summery:
 With King Harold away at war Lord Raburn has his eye on the throne. Those who dare to stand in his way fall beneath his power. All but one. A girl named Annabeth. Can a common, ordinary girl, with love for king, country, and her father, achieve the impossible? Trained by her father, a master swordsman, outlawed Annabeth has only her sword, her wits, and her disguises to keep Belterra from falling entirely into Lord Raburn's clutches. Can she rescue her captured father and Prince Alfred? Will one girl keep the kingdom from falling?

 Now you can see why I wish to read it. It has everything I love in a story. Kings, castles, swords, evil villains, common heroes. It sounds like a wonderful story. And the cover is amazing! One of my favourite covers. 

 You can find the book on Amazon as well as Barnes and Nobles - I believe.

 It is finally starting to sink in that I only have two days left until I publish. I'm now more nervous - not to mention tired - then bouncing off the walls excited. I will save the excited for the 14th when I will need a huge energy boost. (I should pack a lot of sugar for that day...)

 Rules:
 Through the weeks of December 1st - 13th post about a book which has stood out to you recently - it would be preferable if this is a new book just coming out or which hasn't been out very long but it is't required.

 In your post, tell about what drew you to this book. (Cover, summery, author, website.) Tell others about it, and if you've finished it, you can tell us what you enjoyed about the story.

 (If the author has a website or blog, you might even leave a comment there to tell them about the post. Not required.)

 Once the post is up link back TO THIS PAGE. DO NOT leave the comment on my blog or it will not be counted. (As I won't be able to keep track of them)
 Leave a comment at the bottom of this page along with the link to your post. (I will be reading all the posts.)
 The comment will enter you in the giveaway.

 You may enter more then once, but you must do a new post for each comment, and it must be about a different book.

 Spread the word about new books you've discovered! 

 The winner will be contacted on the 13th. Their book will be mailed out the 14th so it will reach them at the same time as the others. I am excited to read your entries!


 Warning about this. I might not have the copies by the 14th. I am really hoping they come so I can mail the book out that day but if they are late I am very sorry. I had the hardest time trying to order them, the code was being completely shoddy.
 Also, to enter you DO NOT have to have a new book recently read. 8-D It can be an older book, or a book you plan to read. There has been some confusion on this, so I hope this clears it up.

 John was finally able to post again. http://johnthehedgehog.blogspot.com/

 I'm still missing some Book Party entries so if you could please send them to me that would be great.

 Also, I got an email from someone but my email said it was unable to come through. Was someone from here trying to get a hold of me? If so, you can send it through a comment if you like.

 Now, I am going because I am too tried to think anymore.

  1. You're right. That cover is totally awesome. Though I'm not a huge fan after the blurb, I'd read it just because the cover is so cool! O.o 2 days to go and you're a...a...PUBLISHED AUTHOR. Gulp!

  2. I'm interviewing that author on my blog today. And I've signed up to beta read one of her other works. *grin* I'm looking forward to it.

    Oh, and yes, Robert is in subsequent works, though, unfortunately, I'm not sure he'll ever get the lime light again. Robin's eldest daughter steals it. But, anyways, he is a dear, I agree, but I don't have a terrific grip on his character, (my mom had to help me with him. A LOT)

    I'm glad you liked it, though, and hope to have the Take out very shortly.

    Take out amuses me.

  3. I love the cover of today's book and any book with the name Annebeth in it just has to be read!

    I know the Osage Oranges make livestock sick, not sure about humans.....
    We didn't get one open, we just found it at the park already smashed up!

    Here is a link to my blog party post, I wonder my my email doesn't like yours? =(

  4. OOooo. Sounds like *My* kind of book. Swords and villains and castles and Stuff...I love all these new books and authors!! But don't have time to read anymore which is sad. When Christmas break comes along I'll be plowing through books with a sword and spear :D After this book blog party I'll want to do nothing else!

    God Bless

    1. Books are always better with swords. That is my theory.
      I know what you mean about not having time to read. SO much going on! Which is sad, as books are such fun.

  5. Ooh, now THAT looks like a book I would read. I'm a fan of me medivaliness.

    Also, congrats on finding a copy of Wondla! It's cool, is it not? (I hope to start it next week.)

    Also, I apologize if I do not post on blog posts. Blogger's been being a bit of a bugger so it doesn't always show me if there are new blog posts or not.

  7. Poor Jack. *pats back sympathetically* Think of it this way... no one will be able to bear you for long, but you didn't want to be social anyway, so it all works out! :) Just don't scare John away! We shall never forgive you if John runs away because of your emotional wreck. :)
    You could go hide in that hobbit hole we were discussing during NaNo... I could come over and we'll eat chocolate and never go on any adventures or do anything unexpected.

    1. I would never forgive me if I made John run away. I'd have no one about to talk to, or listen to complain when I eat bananas, or read to...all rather depressing thoughts.
      Come on over - I suppose I already have a Hobbit hole since I live in a hole of sorts. And not doing anything unexpected would be fun for awhile, though if an adventure shows itself I might have to take it...*Smirk* Were you able to see the movie yet?
