Book Giveaway: Death by Bikini by Linda Gerber

I have an extra copy of Linda Gerber's Death by Bikini to give away this week. It's the first book in a YA mystery series that continues with Death by Latte (also out now) and Death by Denim (to be released May 2009 - I can't wait!).

Want the book? Then just comment on this post and tell me why you should be the winner. I will give one extra entry if you comment on my review of Death by Bikini here and one extra entry if you comment on my review of Death by Latte here.

Since this is part of the Book Giveaway carnival going on over at Book Room Reviews this week, all entries must be received by midnight CST on November 9th. Also open internationally - just indicate that on your entry. Good luck!

PLUS: Check out this post to see all the books I am giving away the rest of November and make sure you come back for them. Oh, and enter my contest for 1 of 2 signed copies of Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern if you haven't already.

Why should I win? The idea of mewearing a bikini is certain death!

Sara said...

This book sounds so good and thrilling! I've heard so many great things about all the books in the series, but I haven't got the chance to read any of them yet.
I have seen some Death by Latte giveaways out there, but it would be much better to win the first book in the series!

Best,
Sara

Oh, and I have commented on your reviews!

I have not heard of this one before but the review makes it sound like a great read! I have a 14 yo DD and we are always looking for great books to both read so that we can discuss them. This would be a great addition to the "book club" LOL. Thanks for the chance to enter!

Sounds great - glad international is ok, I'm in Europe!

Carol said...

This sounds great. And after I read it I can pass it on to my daughter.

ellie_enchanted said...

First off, thanks for doing an international contest!
Second off - I live in Israel, which makes it incredibly hard to get good new books. Also, the cover looks great! And the books sounds really good to.
And also, I've read some great reviews for it.

Hoping to get the book,
Ellie

Death by Latte is posted in my local bookstore as an owner's favorite. I don't want to read the 2nd in the series without reading the first one, so I would love to win this. Thanks for the giveaway.

mari said...

Sign me up please. :)
I have been wanting to begin this series.

Melissa said...

Not that I need another series to read, but it sounds good! Sometimes I really like YA to lighten up a bit.

S. Krishna said...

I haven't been reading much YA lately, so I'd love to read this one!

Cynthia said...

Katie Stacey said...

this book sounds great, count me in!

Jesica said...

I have no real reason why I should win -- unless "because I want it!" counts as a reason. :)

Book Spot said...

I should totally win this book...I have Death by Latte but I haven't read this book yet and don't have the money to get it right now so I can't read the second book yet...Then I could read both books (and review them too since I feel bad just having the second one sitting there)

and I live somewhere where people are wearing bikinis when (and where) it's very much not appropriate so I'm very intrigued by the title ;)

fbartlett said...

Chick Lit Teens said...

I've been DYING to read this book! I saw it for about two weeks at my Barnes and Noble but never thought about reading it. But then I read your review and a few others and I what it was about. Of course by then my bookstore had run out and I've never seen it again. Please enter me!

I didn't know it was just one of a series. I love when I find books that I can then go read all the rest of the series! I would LOVE this!

I would like to win because the title sounds like me...if I wore a bikini in public I would die of embarrasment...so for me it's Death By Bikini

Carolyn said...

I think I should win cuz I live in Florida, the land of bikinis and need to know how to steer clear of any death caused by bikinis, lol

thanks for sharing

Kelsey said...

Why should I read it? Hmm..because I'm poor and can't afford to buy it and my little library doesn't have it and I have no friends who like to read my books, and yeah, I've been waiting on this book - this series, forever.

Deborah said...

Why should I be the winner? Because I LOVE to read, and this book sounds like something that would be right down my alley. I read your reviews of Death by Bikini and Death by Latte. I don't know how you do it - I have a hard time re-telling a movie or book. So kudos to you!

Thanks for the giveaway. If I win, please contact me at dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Belladonna1975 said...

I would love to win this book. I should win for the dozens of times that I have stood in front of a dressing room mirror and tried on bathing suits. Death By Bikini is something I can truly understand!

international would be great!

Stephanie said...

I don't think that my 'to be read' pile is tall enough, so I think I should keep adding to it. And I understand the title!

tatertot374 said...

Thank you for having this. I would love to win. This sounds like something I could definitely get lost into after the kids go to bed. Thank you!

Great giveaway! Please include me in your drawing.

The series sounds fun, and I love to find great YA books my niece can read. I'd love to read it and review it on my blog, then share it with my niece - who promises to start adding her two cents on the YA reviews!

:) Take care,

elmomomi said...

sounds like an interesting book.
i have recently gotten back into reading after a couple years off... my daughter and i like to read together before going to bed.

Book Lover Lisa said...

Mystery coupled with YA, what could be better. Add me please.

Anastasia said...

I should be the winner because I have a surprising small amount of YA mysteries starring strong females in my library, and this book sounds like the exact thing I need. :D I'd love to read it!

Shalonda said...

I would love to read this book. In fact, I visited the local bookstore this week and they were all sold out of this title! It is hard to find an interesting mystery, and I have heard nothing but good things about Death by Bikini.

Diana Dang said...

I won the second copy from Linda herself but I never got a chance to get the first one! I was so mad when I couldn't find it in my library and I have a tight budget so I didn't go out to buy it. But this is an amazing opportunity!

xtraliciousssx said...

wow, this looks interesting. would love to be entered, thankss

Jinxy and Me said...

I should be the winner because I need a good new book and this would fit the bill. Plus, I'm following your blog! Thanks for the giveaway!

Anonymous said...

It would mean a lot if I was picked. Reading is my passion, it's something I can't live without. This book seems pretty interesting and many people have recommended it to me. Unfortunately where I live the library is really small and they barely have any good books to read, most are for small children or biographies. Not everything is exactly close in the town I live.

My library needs a copy of this because Linda Gerber came to our career day last April, and when I ordered the book this summer, it didn't come in, so we still don't have a copy!

Enjoyed your blog!
