Win LAB GIRL by Hope Jahren

We’re giving away a bunch of our favorite books from 2016. Up for grabs next: three copies of Lab Girl by Hope Jahren.

Here’s what I wrote about it in our Best of 2016 round-up:

Like the plants and trees that Hope Jahren studies, Lab Girl is the story of trying to find purchase. Purchase for a girl then young woman then professor who wants to live a life of science in a world that doesn’t particularly like science, and women scientists in particular. Months after listening to Lab Girl, that is what has stuck with me—Jahren’s will to define a life for herself as a scientist, mother, teacher, friend, and colleague that defies easy categorization or ready-made role. That she has created a meaningful life, insisted on and fought for that life, reminds us that it can be done.

We Have 50(!) Copies of GEEKARELLA by Ashley Poston to Give Away!

We have 50 (!) Advance Reading Copies of Ashley Poston’s Geekerella to give away to 50 Riot readers.

Here’s what it’s about:

Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale. Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.

Win $100 to Spend at Powell’s

For book lovers, one of the best parts of the holiday season is having a great excuse to spend time in bookstores. And, for my money at least, there is no better bookstore in the U.S. than Powell’s. Great selection of both used and new books, unrivaled book-related products, a great website for buying and browsing online: Powell’s has it all.

So we are thrilled to have a $100 Powell’s digital gift card  to give away to a Book Riot reader, thanks to our friends at Early Bird Books.

Three winners will be drawn randomly from the entrants and will then be emailed for their physical mailing address. The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada and entries will be accepted until December 17th at midnight eastern.

This giveaway is sponsored by Knopf, publisher of Prince Lestat & The Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice.

From Anne Rice, conjurer of the beloved best sellers Interview with the Vampire and Prince Lestat, an ambitious and exhilarating new novel of utopian vision and power.

At the novel’s center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat’s undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.


Enter to win one of 10 copies of Prince Lestat & The Realms of Atlantis. All you have to do is tell us what your favorite vampire story is.

Giveaway: Win One of the Best Mystery Books of 2016

From now through January, Book Riot is giving away some of our favorite books of 2016.

Up first is one of our favorite mysteries of 2016: IQ by Joe Ide.

Author Joe Ide used his own history, growing up as an Asian kid in South Central Los Angeles, to create IQ, a new mystery set in a tough L.A. neighborhood about Isaiah Quintabe, nicknamed IQ,who is determined to help find justice and solve unsolved crimes the police don’t care about. Quintabe is inspired by Sherlock Holmes and the book has already been compared to a West Coast version of The Wire, so perhaps it’s not surprising that the television rights to IQ have already sold.

We’ve got three copies to giveaway to U.S. and Canada residents. Go here to enter for a chance to win, or just click the image below. Good luck!
