What am I contest-DISTORT 3

WHAT AM I?

Okay. This contest is for a book. You will not know what book it is because that is part of the contest lol. I have posted a photo of the book but it has been DISTORTED and GRAYSCALED. Everyday it goes without being guessed it gets less distorted.


If you think you know what book it is by the one clue email me at msilvabooks@live.com with your answer. If only one person has guessed the book within the allowed time frame that person wins the book. If multiple people are able to guess the book with the one clue, all the names get put into a bowl and a random winner is chosen.


Now this is where it gets hard. The clues will be difficult so if no one can guess the book with the one clue, a second clue will be added to go with the first. Then another time limit will be activated with the clue and the same rules apply. (if one person guesses they get it if more than one then names in bowl).

This will keep going for UP TO 5 ADD ONS to the photo. The clearing up of the photo will make it easier to guess the book, but this also means the more people to get it right the less chance you have to win.

So here are the rules.

1.This time the contest is US and CANADA ONLY (book is being shipped by someone else :))
2. You can use whatever you want to try and find what book i'm talking about (google, goodreads, etc)
3. DO NOT post the answer on the comments because that will ruin the contest, email me your answer. If I see any answers on the wall the contest WILL get withdrawn and therefore no winner.
4. play fair and have fun
5. One guess per person. Once 2nd clue is posted a second guess is allowed. Once 3rd clue is posted a 3rd guess is allowed. etc etc
6. Each clue will give you time to guess til midnight that day the clue is added (my time)
Not to many rules but they should still be followed :)

****Every day there will be more of the photo visible until someone can guess what it is. If only one person guesses correctly then that person has the option of receiving the book or passing it up for the contest to continue. If multiple people guess correctly they will have the same option and whoever wants it gets their name put into a hat and drawn at random.****


good luck and have fun!!

ABSOLUTION REVIEW

ABSOLUTION BY JENNIFER LAURENS

Absolution is the third book in Jennifer Laurens Heavenly Series. I've been waiting anxiously to read this book and let me tell you I was not disappointed, it was everything I expected and more.

WARNING THERE ARE SPOILERS, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT READ ANY BOOK IN THE SERIES YET!****CAUTION*****






Absolution takes place right after Brady's funeral. Zoe is still being haunted by Albert and he is doing everything he can to ruin her life by attacking her family with his evil pressence. The slightest argument gets blown up into a frenzy of emotions and he will not settle on just her family but everyone who is close to her just to get Matthias' soul.

Nerves are worn thin and trying to get back into the swing of things is becoming very difficult. Krissy is filled with guilt over her disaster of a party and with her dad a raging maniac threatening everyone he can think of to find his daughter after she ran away things become a bit complicated. Luke finds her hitchiking and becomes surprisingly close to her in order to comfort her, finding out truths about her life that make Zoe and Luke feel horrible and trying to do anything they can to find a way to help her. Zoe knows there is something wrong with Krissy's father because of the swarm of black spirits latched on to him.

Albert's attempt to destroy her family has put a strain on Zoe and because of him she is forced to tell her parents the truth about everything, from her 'near death' experience and about Matthias. Albert's influence on everyone has made Zoe's life very stressful and it doesn't help matters when Brady's influence is focused on Weston. His short fuse makes it even more difficult for Weston to keep his cool and when he turns his aggression on Zoe, she is pushed into a situation where she must keep Weston calm and explain to him that he feels this way because of Brady wrapping his evil tendrils around him. It becomes easier for Weston to handle the idea of his former best friend pushing him to the edge of darkness when Matthias finally reveals himself to Weston.

The ending of Absolution is Ab-So-Lute-Ly Fantastic! An unexpected outcome involving Albert makes your heart swell with joy and the heartbreakingly beautiful ending makes you never want it to end. But life goes on as Zoe realizes and Matthias becomes more important to the world then she can even imagine.

Jennifer Laurens' Heavenly series is a MUST READ, Absolution is a great conclusion to this trilogy and I can only hope to read more in the future but if this is truely the end I am happy :) Thanks to Jennifer for creating such a wonderful and heart-warming series and for being such a great writer AND friend.

If you want your chance to read Jennifer Laurens' trilogy check out these links: Heavenly(book 1) Penitence (Heavenly) (book 2) and finally Absolution (Volume 3)3)

Enjoy everyone
