My giveaway: Signed copy of Insignia by  S. J. Kincaid OR $10 Amazon Gift card, winner's choice.
Insignia (Insignia, #1)Goodreads Book Description: More than anything, Tom Raines wants to be important, though his shadowy life is anything but that. For years, Tom’s drifted from casino to casino with his unlucky gambler of a dad, gaming for their survival. Keeping a roof over their heads depends on a careful combination of skill, luck, con artistry, and staying invisible.

Then one day, Tom stops being invisible. Someone’s been watching his virtual-reality prowess, and he’s offered the incredible—a place at the Pentagonal Spire, an elite military academy. There, Tom’s instincts for combat will be put to the test, and if he passes, he’ll become a member of the Intrasolar Forces, helping to lead his country to victory in World War Three. Finally, he’ll be someone important: a superhuman war machine with the tech skills that every virtual-reality warrior dreams of. Life at the Spire holds everything that Tom’s always wanted—friends, the possibility of a girlfriend, and a life where his every action matters—but what will it cost him?

Gripping and provocative, S. J. Kincaid’s futuristic thrill ride of a debut crackles with memorable characters, tremendous wit, and a vision of the future that asks startling, timely questions about the melding of humanity and technology.


What I Think: So I had mixed feelings about this book as you'll see if you read my review about it here.
Review of Insignia: There can only be one Harry Potter
But I just recently put up a poll about whether or not a blogger should give away books he/she didn't love and the overwhelming answer was yes. So I'm doing my part in giving you guys what you want! :-)

  3. I'd probably go for the gift card. Insignia doesn't really sound like my kind of read.

    1. Just to clarify: Actually it's a better "deal" to get the book because I spent $20 to buy the hard back copy (it is cheaper on Amazon at $11) BUT it's signed by the author! Can't put a price on that :-)
