Tip of the Day: don't forget to comment every day this week for a chance to win books, books, and more books!
[complete contest information]
When most eight-year olds were watching My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake, my brother was on a mission to make me "less girly" and "more tough." His training regime consisted of making me watch as many Bruce Lee, Steven Seagal, and Jean-Claude Van Damme movies as humanly possible. Followed by reenacting fight scenes from the movies and jumping off buildings.
So it's no wonder I've grown up to appreciate kick-butt females in movies and books.
I love them even more when the female heroes are the underdog. Excatly like my eight-year old self was when my brother told me I couldn't jump off the roof of our house because I was "too chicken" or "not brave enough." I loved proving him wrong!
So when I heard about The Squad books by Jennifer Lynn Barnes that feature cheerleaders that are actually undercover government operatives, I knew I'd love them. I wasn't disappointed and I know you won't be either! Even if you don't love kick-butt female underdogs quite as much as me, there's still something in these books for everyone.
For your chance to win The Squad: Killer Spirit--along with Project 17--all you have to do is leave a comment.
Everyday you leave a comment this week, you'll get an extra entry. If you are a blog follower (and let us know) you'll get another bonus entry. And if that wasn't enough (I'm totally feeling like an infomercial announcer at this point--but the ways of winning just keep coming) for an additional bonus entry if you want to follow my brand new Twitter account @writeremily. It's really new (as in I just literally started it seconds ago, so I really need friends!).
Super easy way to win FIVE BOOKS!
