GIVEAWAY: Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley!

Hey everyone! Today the lovely people at Harlequin TEEN and Media Masters Publicity have offered a giveaway for the newly released novel, Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley. They have given me a finished print copy to give away on my blog to one lucky Bittersweet Enchantment reader

I know many of you have already seen or heard about the book but for those who have not below you can read all about it. I am definitely looking forward to reading my copy. I love diverse books, we should all read more of them. :)

Good luck to you all!




Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley
Available in Hardcover, Paperback, ebook - 384 pages
Published September 30th 2014 by Harlequin Teen
Genre: Historical Fiction > Contemporary > Glbt

In 1959 Virginia, the lives of two girls on opposite sides of the battle for civil rights will be changed forever.

Sarah Dunbar is one of the first black students to attend the previously all-white Jefferson High School. An honors student at her old school, she is put into remedial classes, spit on and tormented daily.

Linda Hairston is the daughter of one of the town's most vocal opponents of school integration. She has been taught all her life that the races should be kept "separate but equal."

Forced to work together on a school project, Sarah and Linda must confront harsh truths about race, power and how they really feel about one another.

Boldly realistic and emotionally compelling, Lies We Tell Ourselves is a brave and stunning novel about finding truth amid the lies, and finding your voice even when others are determined to silence it.

Waiting on Wednesday #27: The Wicked Will Rise & Endangered

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week, I'm waiting on...


The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
Series: Dorothy Must Die #2
Number of Pages: 432
Expected publication: March 31st 2015 by HarperCollins
Genre: YA - Fantasy > Retellings



In this dark, high-octane sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die, Amy Gumm must do everything in her power to kill Dorothy and free Oz.

To make Oz a free land again, Amy Gumm was given a mission: remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, and then Dorothy must die....

But Dorothy still lives. Now the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked has vanished, and mysterious Princess Ozma might be Amy’s only ally. As Amy learns the truth about her mission, she realizes that she’s only just scratched the surface of Oz’s past—and that Kansas, the home she couldn't wait to leave behind, may also be in danger. In a place where the line between good and evil shifts with just a strong gust of wind, who can Amy trust—and who is really Wicked?



Hillary's is waiting on....


Endangered by Lamar Giles
Number of Pages: 288
Expected publication: April 21st 2015 by Harper Teen
Genre: YA - Thriller


Her name is Lauren, but everyone calls her Panda. What they don’t know is that behind their backs, she also goes by Gray. As in Gray Scales, the photo blog that her classmates are addicted to because of the secrets Gray exposes: a jock buying drugs, a teacher in a compromising position, the richest girl in school shoplifting. But no one knows Panda’s the vigilante photographer behind it all. At least, she thinks no one knows—until she gets a note from the Admirer, who’s not only caught her red-handed acting as Gray, but also threatens to reveal everything unless Panda joins her Admirer in a little game of Dare or … Dare. Panda plays along. Anything to keep the secrets she’s protected for years. But when the game turns deadly, Panda doesn’t know what to do. And she might need to step out of the shadows to save herself … and everyone else on the Admirer’s hit list, including some of the classmates she’s loathed and exposed for years.
