Possession by Elana Johnson

Surrender (Possession, #2)
Win a *signed* copy by entering the contest below! Elana contacted me about joining her blog tour for her new book, Surrender, which I'm so excited to read.

As part of the contest, I'm posting my review and offering a signed copy of Possession. Here's my review:

I loved the pacing in this one and I couldn't get enough of Vi and her kick butt, take no prisoners attitude--my favorite was her "Violet speak" moments-I laughed outloud more than once. Jag was oh-so-yummy and I burned through their kissing scenes.
Possession (Possession, #1)I also really liked how Johnson blended paranormal abilities into a dystopian-something I haven't seen done before. It made the read different. In fact, the whole book is very different. So if you're tired of the same old dystopian, this one definitely switches things up.

Final verdict: If you love dystopian, you should definitely give Possession a try.

Just a tip: Near the end, the POV starts to get switched up. So if you're totally confused, just remember it's probably a flashback from Jag's POV.

And now for the contest! To win a signed hardcover of Possession, all you have to do is vote for either Surrender or Witch Born on any Goodread's list below:

Witch Born: http://www.goodreads.com/list/book/13496452-witch-born
Surrender: http://www.goodreads.com/list/book/11700071-surrender

Every vote counts as one point. No limit on points. Please only vote for lists you feel the book(s) deserve to be on.

If you don't have a Goodreads account (?!?), you can Facebook or tweet the contest. Contest closes on July 26th. Make sure you tally up your own points and leave your email address in the comments.

  1. So if I tweet about this i just leave a message here to tell you? You don't have to somehow look (not that I would be dishonest I'm just clarifying).

  1. I voted on three of the lists for witchborn. I've gotta say, I found the lists a bit distracting,... I went to vote and ended up spending a half hour just adding books to my wishlist! lol!!! Gonna have to go back to those lists later! :)

    I'm pretty sure I voted for Witch Born on multiple lists a week or two ago. Oh! I did! I just checked! Since I haven't read the other book I don't think I can really vote on it fairly though. I'd like a copy though so I can read it & vote on it though! mistybown@hotmail.com

  1. BAM! I figured out the whole 'vote' thingy and voted 5 times for each book. (It's really easy when the categories are 'I'M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK', etc :)

    Thanks, Ashley!

    Wendy: Just twice?

    Rachel: Care to guess how many times so I can give you your points?

    Shelly: You make me laugh! haha

    Misty: You wanna guestimate how many times???

    Luke: Thanks! It kinda does, doesn't it?

    Katie: Glad you loved it! I never get tired of hearing that. :)

  1. I love your book, Amber! And I can't wait for Witch Born. I love books, especially free ones. So, I voted for your book on 12 lists. Sorry it took me so long. You know, just driving across the country and I didn't have a lot of free time!
