Giveaway: The Demon's Lexicon


The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan

Summary: I can't find one for this book and I don't know why! Well, not an official one at least...but it's amazing. Two brothers on the run. Alan wants to keep his mum safe, but Nick could care less and knows she's the reason they are running in the first place and why his dad had to die. Two friends, Mae and Jamie, get wrapped up their world as they all try to stay hidden from the magician's and the demons they have summoned to get them.

That's all I can think to say at the moment but OMG, this book is amazing. I'm almost finished and will have a full review up in a few days at least (I'm hoping, as I have a few older reviews I need to get posted too). Anyway, now it's time for you to win a copy.

Thank you to Sarah for sending me a copy to read/review and giveaway in honor of the YA Book Carnival and I think it's fitting she's last to go! I hope you all enjoyed the carnival and thanks for all the new followers. I hope to see you around. On non-contest posts, I LOVE to comment back so keep checking and talking. :-)

Favorite villian?

The first thing I thought of was Freddy Krueger

I guess because he used to scare the living crap out of me. Him and Chucky. Ick!

Amanda said...

Sure, why not, I'll sign up. :) Favorite villain...probably Bellatrix LeStrange from Harry Potter. I know, that's not real original, but man she was scarier than Voldemort!

The guy with no eyebrows from Lost Highway rocked, too.

Amanda said...

Angiegirl said...

Favorite villain of all time....Madam DeFarge from A Tale of Two Cities. She just never fails to creep me out with her ceaseless knitting and her quest for vengeance.

Oh, I am definitely entering this contest for sure. My favorite villain of all time is still Iago from Shakespeare's Othello, which I read in 9th grade. He so perfectly manipulates Othello and the others into their downfall that it's incredible, even if he IS the bad guy!

My immediate thoughts were split when I read "favorite villain." Hans Gruber from the original Die Hard movie and Severus Snape from the Harry Potter books popped into my mind at almost exactly the same time. Obviously this means that Alan Rickman (the actor who plays both in the movies) is my favorite villain of all time. I think it's something about the voice...

Tough question...

I've been debating between Dolores Umbridge, Sunlight Gardener, and IT.
