GIVE AWAY!! - God's Behaving Badly

Check out this great giveaway! Valerie from Hachette Book Group is generously offering a fantastic Giveaway of the upcoming book God's Behaving Badly. FIVE COPIES are being given away at A Circle of Books.

(Check out the Hachette site!! Lots of good books coming your way).

ABOUT THE BOOK: Gods Behaving Badly By Marie Phillips

Being a Greek god is not all it once was. Yes, the twelve gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse-and none too happy about it. And they've had to get day jobs: Artemis as a dog-walker, Apollo as a TV psychic, Aphrodite as a phone sex operator, Dionysus as a DJ. Even more disturbingly, their powers are waning, and even turning mortals into trees-a favorite pastime of Apollo's-is sapping their vital reserves of strength.

Soon, what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills. Two perplexed humans, Alice and Neil, who are caught in the crossfire, must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed-but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world?

Your description has me chomping at the bit to read this book. Not the type of book I usually pick up but it sounds so very interesting, funny and suspenseful at the same time. Would definitely blog about it if I could but can't. No blog. Bummer. My e-mail address is vicsterhome@aol.com. Thanks.

Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Colleen said...

This sounds awesome. Whenever I read Greek myths I think about how the gods have a lot of negative human qualities, and how they tend to really screw up the lives of humans. This book sounds like it's a neat twist on those ideas!
