Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop - INTL

The 2nd Annual Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop - June 20th to 26th

What is Midsummer's Eve, anyway? For many areas, it's the longest period of daylight of the year, or the day the summer solstice occurs (this year, Wed. June 20, 2012). The occasion has Pre-Christian roots, but if you look at the spirit of the observance, it's a celebration of healing, prosperity, and the warding off of evil. What better book to give away then, than Silence by Michelle Sagara

From Goodreads:

It began in the graveyard. Ever since her boyfriend Nathan died in a tragic accident Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that's all it was. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there—Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death…

I'll be writing a full review later--for now, let's just say it's a story of life, death, friendship, healing and the power of good versus evil. And look at that gorgeous cover! Some lucky person will really be enjoying their summer reading if they win this lovely novel.

I received a review copy from Penguin Teen. If the winner is outside of US/Canada I will keep the review copy and instead send a copy from bookdepository.com to the winner. So when I say it's open internationally, that means any country to which bookdepository.com ships. Please check the list before you enter! It's a long list :)

More rules:

To enter you must be over 13 years old or have the permission of a parent/guardian since you may be sharing personal info such as your email address. The winner will be chosen randomly via Rafflecopter.  None of the entries are mandatory, but you need to do a least one to enter. Good luck!

Don't forget to visit the other blogs on the giveaway hop for more chances to win! My post will be up early (12 pm EST) so you may have to wait til 12 am on Wednesday night for most of the other links to be live.
