Weekend Book Give-Away: Venom

This week I am traveling to Texas to visit my dear grandma for her 90th birthday.  But secretly I wish I was going to visit someplace a little more exotic (and sunny).  But for now, I'll just have to find that in books!   If you want an exotic journey, check out this week's book Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose - Book One) by Fiona Paul .

Love, lust, murder, mayhem and high society converge in one thrilling debut Cassandra Caravello has everything a girl could desire: elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, invitations to the best parties, and a handsome, wealthy fiancé--yet she longs for something more. Ever since her parents' death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape. When Cass stumbles upon the body of a murdered woman--with a bloody X carved across her heart--she's drawn into a dangerous world of secret societies, courtesans, and killers. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a poor artist with a mischievous grin . . . and a habit of getting into trouble. Will Cassandra find the murderer before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancé or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco? Beauty, romance, and mystery weave together in a novel that's as seductive and stunning as the city of Venice itself.

Venice is a pretty amazing place to visit.  For a chance to win this book, tell me what city you yearn to visit, and why.

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Thursday January 10th, 2013. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

I would love to visit London! So many books, classical and current, reference famous places in London. The experience of actual seeing the river Thames and Big Ben and all the cathedrals would be amazing!!!

I would love to go to New York City. It is so popular because of all the fancy restraunts and shopping places.If I did go, I would have to save up money for about a decade because I would buy so many things.
