Day 1 of 7 blogoversary giveaways: Wicked As They Come by Delilah S. Dawson

My little blog is one year old this week!

I've loved and occasionally not loved blogging for the past year. When I started I had no idea what I was really getting into, blogging is time consuming and demanding and I often put pressure on myself to have new content every day and keep up with review books and the irony is it took me away from reading quite a lot. I think I've chilled out a bit more, the blog police will not be at my door if I don't post every day and I only review books I want to review now. I can't really be arsed chasing review copies and I no longer go green with envy when I see another blogger's IMM posts!

This year I'm planning a whole blog makeover or two and I'll be reviewing more paranormal romance and urban fantasy as well as contemporary romance and some hotter books! I will still occasionally review YA but just not as much. I'm going back to my roots baby!!!

Some of my most popular posts (apart from giveaways) are my book boyfriend posts so I plan to have another 52ish book boyfriends, it's the highlight of my Wednesday after all.

So to celebrate my little blogs birthday I'll be having 7 days of giveaways, they are going to be a mixture of books I've loved, books I'm currently loving and some books I've been desperate to be released. So on day 1 of 7 days of giveaways how about Wicked As They Come by Delilah S. Dawson? I've had this on my wish list for ages it's been getting some great early reviews. All you need to do is fill out the rafflecopter thingy below, the giveaway is international (as long as The Book Depository delivers to you)

Wicked As They Come
Delilah S. Dawson
Publication date: 27th March 2012

Have you ever heard of a Bludman? They’re rather like you and me—only more fabulous, immortal, and mostly indestructible. (They’re also very good kissers.)

Delilah S. Dawson’s darkly tempting debut drops her unsuspecting heroine into a strange faraway land for a romantic adventure that’s part paranormal, part steampunk . . . and completely irresistible.

When Tish Everett forces open the ruby locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman has cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world, where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical traveling circus, curiously awaits. At Criminy’s electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also foresees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, her only chance to return home. Tish and Criminy battle roaring sea monsters and thundering bludmares, vengeful ghosts and crooked Coppers in a treacherous race to recover the necklace from the evil Blud-hating Magistrate. But if they succeed, will Tish forsake her fanged suitor and return to her normal life, or will she take a chance on an unpredictable but dangerous destiny with the Bludman she’s coming to love?
