Teen Read Week and an Audio Giveaway


It's Teen Read Week! Of course, around my place every week is teen read week. But, this is a great opportunity to get the teens in your life reading some great books.

In order to do that, of course, I have some excerpts of some great audio from Simon and Schuster. With all the home remodeling and school stuff that I've been doing (updates on both of those things are forthcoming), audio has been my saving grace.

I often get the question, how do you read so much? And the fact is that I always have a book around. I've got books on my iphone, a physical book in my purse, and audio in cd's on my car and on my iphone as well. That way, no matter where I am, if I have downtime, I'm reading.

Here are some samples from some great titles from Simon and Schuster:

Blood Red Road
By: Moira Young

I've read the physical copy and listened to the audio of this title, and both ways are PHENOMENAL. Pretty much, Blood Red Road is awesome, and if you haven't read it you should. Check out the audio sample below. Can't see it? Follow this link to listen online.


Changeling
By: Philippa Gregory

I've also listened to this one on audio, and thought it was phenomenal. Charlie Cox does a great job of animating each character. I haven't read any of Gregory's other titles, but this one is definitely worth a listen. Check out the sample! (Can't see it? Follow this link to listen online).




The Blessed
by: Tonya Hurley

This one is definitely on my to-listen list! Though the cover kind of freaks me out (I mean, why is an exhausted looking Amanda Seyfried praying?), I'm hoping that this one delivers in a big way. What do you think? Check out the audio sample below: (If you can't see it, follow this link to view online).



Rebel Heart
By: Moira Young

You can bet that as soon as I get my hot little hands on a copy of Rebel Heart I'll be dropping everything to hear a little more from Jack and Saba! And, I'm lucky enough to have just a little sample of the awesomeness that will coming your way on October 30! Check it out below. (And again, if you can't see it, check this link).



Oh yeah... and in the post title I mentioned a little giveaway. How would you like to win all four of these titles? Yes, including the highly anticipated Rebel Heart. Well, you're in luck! Check out the rafflecopter below (if you're in a feed reader, you're going to have to click on over. But, you did that anyway to listen to the samples, right?!)

Don't forget to give a huge thank you to Simon and Schuster Audio for hosting the giveaway!

  1. Blood Red Road has to be one of my all-time favorite audio books. It was the first one that actually got me hooked on audio books.

    Cannot wait for Rebel Heart. Thanks for the great giveaway. =)

  2. This is an awesome giveaway! I have a physical copy of Blood Red Road but I've yet to read it, which is a bit of a shame because it just looks so awesome.

    Thanks for the chance Emily and Simon Audio!
