Giveaway: Envy by Elizabeth Miles

Last summer I read a book called Fury that I loved. The theme was revenge, which was very interesting to explore, but what I really loved about the book was the setting and the major twist at the end. So, I'm excited that the sequel, Envy, is out soon, and I'm happy to announce that thanks to Paper Lantern Lit, I am offering a signed copy as a giveaway!

If you don't know what Fury is about, click here to read my review. And read on to learn more about Envy!
"The Furies are back in the second book of a chilling paranormal trilogy where revenge rules the day—and “sorry” isn’t going to cut it. 
Spring is coming, and the ice is slowly melting in Ascension…revealing the secrets buried beneath. 
Emily Winters knows the Furies have roots in Ascension, Maine—but she’s about to discover that they’re deeper than she ever imagined. With the help of her new friend Drea, she vows to dig them out. But it’s hard to focus when she’s desperate to make up with JD, and to figure out why Crow, a mysterious Ascension High dropout, seems to be shadowing her. 
Meanwhile, new girl Skylar McVoy is determined to leave her own dark past behind. So she’s thrilled when popular Gabby takes her under her wing, and the stunning and sophisticated Meg offers to give her a major makeover. But everyone knows what happens to the vainest girl of all… 
It’s tempting to be naughty. But beware: the Furies are always watching, and their power grows stronger by the day."
Sounds awesome, right? Well, all you have to do to enter is comment below and tell me...if you had the opportunity to exact revenge against someone who did you wrong, and you knew you'd never get caught, would you do it?

The contest ends August 15th! U.S. residents only, please! If you tweet/Facebook, let me know in your comments for extra entries!

I'd like to say no I'm better than that and that by seeking revenge I'm stooping to their level BUT a part of me thinks I'd jump at the chance!!!

I wouldn't do it; I might not get caught but what goes around, comes around and I'd pay eventually.

Saying that, I really enjoyed Fury for its different concepts and am excited to see how the series continues.

traveler said...

petite said...

I would definitely exact revenge and would not have to deliberate this decision since it would be deserved.elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

Jess (The Cozy Reader) said...

While not getting caught is tempting, it doesn't do anything against the self blame or guilt that would eat away at me. If the revenge I do is harmful in any way I would not be able to stop thinking about it. :(

Thanks for the giveaway!

TayteH said...

Yes. Yes I would. Never get caught. Why wouldn't you? :D

thank you!

I would SO do it - to one particular person who made my life hell and who deserves it - nothing too awful but just a constant reminder that he is a total idiot.

Paige said...

Yeah, I'd go for a dose of sweet revenge if someone did something absolutely terrible to me.

Sophia said...

Ah! Such a moral question. I want to say that I wouldn't do it, but if the person did something absolutely unforgivable, I'd probably have a bit of revenge.

I would love to say I wouldn't, but I'm a revenge seeker edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOtcom

Erica said...

It probably makes me a terrible person, but most definitely yes.

Crazy Converse Lady said...

Revenge... ah, sweet, sweet revenge... Yes - I would certanily get my revenge. Though, I'm a vengeful person, and I'm afraid that I'd regret not taking the chance, however terrible that may seem. :p
