This week I've giving away ARCs of two of my favorite reads this year. Up first is

BLACK HOLE SUN by David Macinnis Gill (Harper/Greenwillow, August 2010)

I loved the world building in this book and could hardly stop reading it once I picked it up. And I'm not alone. David scored a sweet blurb from Suzanne Collins, author of THE HUNGER GAMES.

From Amazon:

Durango is playing the cards he was dealt. And it’s not a good hand.

He’s lost his family.

He’s lost his crew.

And he’s got the scars to prove it.

You don’t want to mess with Durango.

For your chance to win this awesome ARC, all you need to do is:

1) Follow this blog
2) Follow The Texas Sweethearts blog
3) Comment on this blog post

For extra entries:

1) Blog about this contest and leave a comment telling me
2) Tweet about this contest and leave a comment telling me

And make sure you leave me a way to get in contact with you when you win!

The contest will run through midnight on Friday, August 6, 2010!

And don't forget:

Enter to win an ARC of WHERE THE TRUTH LIES by Jessica Warman!
