QUICK DOUBLE ARC GIVEAWAY: THE ETERNAL ONES and STAR ISLAND

DOUBLE ARC GIVEAWAY
SHARING SOME GOOD READS!
STAR ISLAND            THE ETERNAL ONES 
 

********************************************
 THE ETERNAL ONES
BY KIRSTEN MILLER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Haven Moore cannot control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmotherÕs house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.

In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves, before all is lost and the cycle begins again.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kirsten Miller grew up in a small town in the mountains of North Carolina. At seventeen, she hit the road and moved to New York City, where she lives to this day. Kirsten is the author of the acclaimed Kiki Strike books, which tell the tale of the delinquent girl geniuses who keep Manhattan safe.
 ******************************************* 
STAR ISLAND
BY CARL HIAASEN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye (née Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was fourteen—and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster.

Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her “undercover stunt double,” Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too “indisposed”—meaning wasted—to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott.

Now the challenge for Cherry’s handlers (über–stage mother; horndog record producer; nipped, tucked, and Botoxed twin publicists; weed whacker–wielding bodyguard) is to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret from Cherry’s public—and from Cherry herself.

The situation is more complicated than they know. Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Skink—the unhinged former governor of Florida living wild in a mangrove swamp—and now he’s heading for Miami to find her . . .

Will Bang Abbott achieve his fantasy of a lucrative private photo session with Cherry Pye? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? Will Skink track down Ann DeLusia before Cherry’s motley posse does?

All will be revealed in this hilarious spin on life in the celebrity fast lane.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Carl Hiaasen was born and raised in Florida. He is the author of eleven previous novels, including the best-selling Nature Girl, Skinny Dip, Sick Puppy, and Lucky You, and three best-selling children’s books, Hoot, Flush, and Scat. His most recent work of nonfiction is The Downhill Lie: A Hacker’s Return to a Ruinous Sport. He also writes a weekly column for The Miami Herald.

I think the eternal ones sounds really interesting. The idea of reincarntion sounds like a good storyline.

I confess that I ignored the Eternal Ones before because of its cover!!! I would choose this one because dressmaking kept the main character sane. My mother depended on sewing to help her through bad times so I am attracted to this book even though the other one sounds quite funny!

Well, they both sounds really good in very different ways. If I had to pick which one I wanted most I would go with The Eternal Ones. It sounds like it would have a lot of twists and turns that would keep me entertained. Also, I have always been fascinated with past life stories.

I think I would want The Eternal Ones the most. I've read several Hiassan, they're always fun, the Miller's book looks great. Plus, I just read my first Kiki Strike book and would like to try her teen novel.
