Giveaway: Deep Blue

Today I have a fantastic giveaway to help celebrate next week's release of Jennifer Donnelly's paranormal young adult novel, Deep Blue. I knew I had to have this book the minute I saw its gorgeous cover, so I'm excited to have the opportunity to give away a copy to one lucky winner! It will look oh-so pretty on someone's shelf :) Before we get to the giving away of awesome things though, check out a little bit about Deep Blue:

DEEP BLUE


The first in a series of epic tales set in the depths of the ocean, where six mermaids seek to protect and save their hidden world.

Deep in the ocean, in a world not so different from our own, live the merpeople. Their communities are spread throughout the oceans, seas, and freshwaters all over the globe.

When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be winning the love of handsome Prince Mahdi. And yet Sera finds herself haunted by strange dreams that foretell the return of an ancient evil. Her dark premonitions are confirmed when an assassin’s arrow poisons Sera's mother.

Now, Serafina must embark on a quest to find the assassin’s master and prevent a war between the Mer nations. Led only by her shadowy dreams, Sera searches for five other mermaid heroines who are scattered across the six seas. Together, they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood and uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world’s very existence.

  1. My favorite mermaid story is The Little Mermaid. It is the first fairy tale that I cried to because the girl didn't get the boy and the boy didn't realize the truth until it was too late.

  9. Thanks you for the great giveaway, Jenny. My favorite Mermaid movie is the old, original Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid which broke my heart when I was a kid, of course Disney's Little Mermaid is awesome too. Hmmm...then there's Splash. What can I say, I like mermaids! :)

  12. I love the cover of this one, but was a little disappointed by the first review of it I saw. Still, I am a lover of all things "mer". What is my favorite Mermaid book or movie? I have to choose? Movie- Well I have always loved Splash with Daryl Hannah and Tom Hanks. But The Little Mermaid runs a close second. Just love the songs in it. As far as books go....no way I can choose!

  13. I don't believe I've read any mermaid books except for Wake by Amanda Hocking. Well technically, they're sirens, but close enough right?

  19. I've always loved The Little Mermaid and I also liked the movie Aquamarine a lot as well. Unfortunately I haven't found any books on mermaids that have caught my interest until now. It's such a beautiful cover and the storyline sounds brilliant!!

  20. I have a copy of this so I won't enter the giveaway, but just wanted to chime in and agree - the cover is lovely! And what a fun prize to have nail polish to match. I wish I was talented enough to do bookish manicures like Mands at The Bookish Manicurist, but sadly it's like i"m a toddler coloring all outside the lines when I do my own nails. :-)

  21. I don't really have a favorite... but I do love mermaids. I'd love to read it!

  22. The movie Splash was pretty good. I particularly liked Tom Hanks (who doesn't?) but John Candy and Darryl Hannah had some good moments too. Thanks for the chance to win Deep Blue.
