Anyone who has been following me knows how much I love both of these books and their wonderful author, Vicky Savage! We are putting together a terrific giveaway for you guys-- one grand prize of a Kindle white with a custom case of Transcender, with both of her books on it! So you know you want to get your hands on this prize!

Transcender: First-TimerGoodreads Book Description: Ripped away from her quiet Connecticut life with the force of a lightning bolt and glitched into a weird alternate universe, Jaden Beckett lands smack in the middle of a kidnapping--her own! The powerful Inter-Universal Guidance Agency (IUGA) engineers her escape and is working overtime to return her home.

But now Jaden's not sure where she belongs. In this world, she has her mother back (a miracle she never imagined). She's known as Princess Jaden, a member of the royal family of one of the three surviving nations,and against her better judgment, she's fallen insanely in love with Ryder Blackthorn, the most wanted outlaw in the land.

Can the IUGA force her to go? Or is Jaden what others in the land beleive she is--a Transcender with the ability to travel among alternate worlds at will?

  1. This book sounds really interesting. I don't think I've read anything like it and I'd love to get a chance to read it! Thanks so much for the giveaway :)

  2. Most of the time I like to read paperback books. I actually don't have a kindle but I use a kindle account and read on my laptop or my phone. That's not the best way so I usually just stick to hard copy books. I also like having the paperback books because I like to organize them.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I started this book a little while ago and got distracted. I just need to finish up this library book I checked out so I can get back to it!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I go back and forth between physical books and electronic books. It depends on my mood and where I'm at. I carry my e-reader with me nearly everywhere so I'm never without a book!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Actually I prefer hardcopy because I love holding books, the smells, the texture. It's comfortable enough for my eyes, and I could go back and forth fast. But reading on smartphone or e-reader is handy, especially when you're traveling. Also, somehow I can read faster compare to when I'm reading hardcopy.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like both, although I find that I read faster when I read paper books. I enjoy the Kindle app I use, but I'd love to read from an actual Kindle and see how I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Usually I prefer to have a physical book to read, but lately I have found myself reading a lot more with e-readers. I don't have a kindle, but I have the kindle app on my phone and computer. Sometimes it is nice to have access to it whenever I want because it's usually a lot easier to carry my phone in my pocket than carrying a book. Reading on my phone isn't too bothersome either! I never thought I would enjoy reading on an e-reader, but it has definitely grown on me.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I actually prefer both but I find myself enjoying the book more when I have a physical copy... I love reading with the feel of the pages (and the smell of a newly-bought book) on my hands, :)
    Thank you!

  9. I prefer to read by hard copy, because we all agree that nothing beats physical books. But I also want to own a Kindle, because ebooks are a lot cheaper than paperbacks, and with it you can carry thousands of books in your pocket everywhere.

  11. I prefer hard copy because I am just an old school book girl, but I have been reading more and more on my kindle and ipad mini.

  12. Thank you for such a fantastic book giveaway!
    In response to your question, i would have to say that i love hardbacks/ paperbacks and am a traditionalist when it comes to reading! I love libraries filled with shelves of dusty, old books that have beautiful covers and colorful spines which look visually apealing and tempting. I also think that it is special to be able to hold a physical book in your hand and read those words on paper ~ it feels more 'real' and tangible.

  13. I love books..but ebooks are so confortable!!!!I really enjoy reading on kindle;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've always prefered a print book to read but lately I've been reading a lot of e-books too. So let's say for some books Kindle is awesome but for my all-time favorite series I go back to print. =)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have recently discovered I read faster on my Kindle due to its portability, my book can go anywhere I go, win! So I guess I prefer ebooks, but I still love my paperbacks and I still have to have my favorite series on my bookshelf.

  16. I prefer hard copy. I can deep read more.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. I prefer a hard copy because I still like the feel of a "real" book, but there are so many good eBooks out there that I read both. Plus, the Kindle is great for bringing on vacation!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like to read hard copy because I adore the feeling of a book in my hands and see all my books in a shelf but if I had a Kindle (I only have the app on my phone...) I'm sure I'd read so much more books.

  19. I like to read hard copy because I adore the feeling of a book in my hands and see my shelf full of books. If I had a Kindle (I only have the app in my phone...) I'm sure I would read a lot more books.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. I've never owned an e-reader because I can't afford one. I was against them when they first came out because I love physical copies but I've been wanting one more and more lately, especially since I can't read in bed when I can't sleep without waking up my fiancé in the process. I also don't have a phone or laptop to use so an e-reader would be VERY helpful. Sometimes authors ask me to read and review their books but I have to turn them down because they are only available in ebook format and I don't have an e-reader. :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like to read by hard copy, more convenient for me and easier.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have a Kindle, but I do enjoy a hard back too! I'm fine with either!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I prefer print, but I like reading ecopies whenever I'm on vacation or when I'm about to go to bed :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I prefer prints for books that I will reread because I love the feel of them, kindle copies are great for storing a lot of books that you might've bought just because of a freebie or one-click

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great giveaway! Although I do read ebooks they got nothing on a brand new hardcover book don't feel the same, don't smell the same.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like hardcover for the look on my shelves, but I like the Kindle because of the great deals!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like both. I enjoying going to the library and looking for books. The battery never dies on a book. Sometimes I just want to turn a real page. With the ereader, I like being able to check books out when I'm too busy to go to the library. No late fees for ebooks at my library.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love to read both hardcover or ebooks. I don't own a kindle reader but I would sure love to win one! :D Thanks for the great opportunity! :)

  43. I like to read hard copies when I'm at home because I like the smell of new books but I also like Kindle because I can take it anywhere I go without having much trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really love my Kindle. But hard copies have a special place in my heart, the smell, the feel of a book is just perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hard copy is definitely still my preferred choice! I do like the Kindle for the fact that you can have loads of books at your fingertip. So easy for traveling!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I prefer books physically in my hands. So, I prefer hard copy. Plus, I like looking at them on my shelf.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I prefer hard copy because I do not own a Kindle. I do, however, own a Kobo BUT it is a 1st gen one and too small for my *old* eyes to read with lol

    ReplyDelete
  48. I prefer hard copy. I just love the feel of them in my hands and the smell. I've worked for 2 bookstores and I just love that feeling of being surrounded by all these books and unexplored worlds. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well I don't have a kindle so I'd have to say I prefer reading hard copies. I'd love to try reading from a kindle because I don't know whether I'd love it or hate it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I prefer reading as an ebook but I do enjoy reading a hard copy from time to time. Ebooks are more convenient and the library doesn't occupy physical space.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Actually both. I do have Kindle, but there is just something when you hold physical book :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like both, but prefer kindle!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I like to read hard copy b/c I like to collect my books, but I like kindle when traveling

    ReplyDelete
  65. I used to be hard copy only and swore I would never ever ever go digital.. But well, things change. I moved around a lot, realized it's so hard to lug books with me.. And most weren't worth taking anyway. When my boyfriend bought me a Kindle for my birthday a few years ago it wasn't long until I was hooked.

    I now only buy a few very choice books. It's nice. It makes them all that much more special. I no longer hoard books on principle.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I don't have a Kindle but I did borrow one for vacation. It was nice and seemed really easy to use! So for now I prefer paperback cuz that's what I have :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love to read with my Kindle Touch. Why? It can bring literally hundreds of books with me wherever I go. Plus, the reason I love it the most is I can make the letters as big as I need them to comfortably read. The only downfall of my Kindle is I love to read in bed or while traveling and with no back light there is no reading. Once it becomes dusk, it becomes bothersome to try and read on it. A Kindle Paperwhite would solve that! Thanks for the chance to win one!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'd definitely rather the kindle. I want one so badly!

    ReplyDelete
  69. It depends but I like reading heavy books using kindle because it's easier and lighter. :) Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  70. If i had to choose i prefer reading hard copies slightly more because i love the smell of new books. I know....I am weird, LOL. However I have such a collection that I am now running out of space and the only thing on my Christmas list is a Kindle! My fingers are so crossed!

    Right now I am reading on a tablet not originally used for ebooks and it's bulky and clumsy so i so want a Kindle! Tried the Nook...didn't like it at all!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love reading hard copies and haven't had the opportunity to try eReaders but think they'd certainly save me some gas $ in not having to make the weekly library run.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hardcopy. I just like having a read book in my hands. I just got a kindle so we'll see if that changes in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I love reading ebooks, but sometimes I just have to hold a book in my hands. I don't care how many ebooks I buy, when I see paper, I still have to buy them... Thank you for your wonderful giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  75. It depends. I prefer reading big books (eg: a song of ice and fire) on the kindle, they're less heavy. But for most books I enjoy reading hardcopy. I actually plan to buy the entire series of a song of ice and fire!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Good question. I love to read using an ereader. I find that if I fall asleep in bed while reading my page is saved. When I'm reading an actual book I have to search for where I left off. Although, I love signed copies and when I win or buy one, they are reserved for the special bookshelf that no one but me is allowed to touch. :-D

    But kindle is perfect for trips.

  80. While I enjoy the convenience of my kindle books, I do miss physical ones. The only thing that has me appreciating ebooks, which I have to read on my phone for now, are my commutes to and from work. It can get exhausting carrying the books around when I walk 1 mile to and from the train and then a few blocks to work. Also, ebooks are perfect for treadmills while books tend to shut or fall off on me.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love the smell of a book. I love to read! It has quickly become an addiction. I got back into reading when a friend loaned me Twilight. After that I hit the library up every two weeks leaving with 10 to 12 books to read in those two weeks. I read Vampire Diaries and Blue Bloods and delved deeper into YA! Found great authors like Julie Halpern and L.J. Smith. Fell in love with House of Night and Vampire Academy. Dipped into Ann Brasheres and Go Ask Alice. Wept over The Lovely Bones and got caught up with everything I had been missing. My kids are teenagers and were right along with me. Even my boys have read Night World and Evernight!
    I love being able to pass along a physical book with my whole family. And love seeing my book collection grow. I have just started buying books and winning them! :) I do love a physical book for
    daytime reading.

    But at night when my lamp is intrusive to my husband my Reading Apps are my best friends and my advocate when it comes to free books and in those free ebooks finding great new authors! It's my Read and Review Buddy!

    So I suppose I just don't have a favorite of the two I love them both but......

    That being said if my house were on fire my ebooks would make it out while my paperbacks would be after my three children, disabled hubby and four dogs!

    :)
    And that's all I have to say about that!

    Thanks for this giveaway Christina!
    Vicky Savage I am looking forward to reading these books whether I win these or not!!

  82. I love the smell of a physical book. I love that I can pass it along to my kids.
    I have recently started building up my bookshelf buying and winning! I had not read anything at all for years! My neighbor loaned me Twilight and then New Moon after reading the Twilight Series I was obsessed with reading.
    I went to the library and looked for Twilight. I located in the YA section and the rest is history. I delved head first into ten to twelve books every two weeks!
    From Go Ask Alice to The Lovely Bones. Vampire Diaries, Blue Bloods, House Of Night, Night World, Wicked Lovely, Get Well Soon, Into The Wild Nerd Yonder, Thirst by Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine's Bitten and everything in between! I really do love physical books!

    But at night when my lamp shines like a beacon in my Hubby's eyes my reader apps are my best friends!
    I also love it for trips and on the go! And most definitely for the free books! Without those free books I wouldn't havefound my favorite authors like Addison Moore, K.A. Last, Jessica Sorensen, Amber Jaeger, Chanda Hahn, Brandy Nacole, Nicole Williams and Cindy M. Hogan to just name a few!!!

    So of the two I don't have a favorite. I just love to read!!!

    But if my house were on fire I must say my eBooks would make it out while my physical copies would be a low priority behind my three teens, disabled hubby and four dogs!!!

    :)

    Thanks so much for this giveaway Christina and Vicky Savage I look forward to reading your books!

  84. I prefer kindle, because I can have all my books with me all the time - and it doesn't make my bag weigh a ton. Also, it's easier to hold, I can read anywhere, too! On the bus, at the beach in bed :)

    Thanks so much for hosting an international giveaway!

  86. I prefer to read on kindle mainly because otherwise I have too many books to keep track of at my house I also like being able to buy the book instantly.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have to say I'm old fashioned enough to still love the feel of a book in my hands. I do think that size and weight make the kindle the better option of the 2 tho....

    ReplyDelete
  88. most likely, a physical copy because I don't have a kindle reader yet.. =)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I actually really enjoy both, but I think my favorite still remains my paper books. I do think I read faster on my Kindle, though, although supposedly that's opposite of what studies will tell you most people do! I DO love having loads of books available at a moment's notice - especially for traveling, because I'd NEVER travel (even overnight, no lie) with fewer than 3 books :) At the same time, though, I love the feel of my books, the smell of both used and new books, the turning of the pages and crinkling of plastic on the jacket (read lots of library books), etc....I'll just never give that up. I'm quite happy being able to choose from both options!

    ReplyDelete
  90. ive always been anti-ereader because i love the smell and feel of a real book. cant really cuddle with an electronic. but its hard to find a particular author im looking for so i would love to just have them all at my fingertips
