This hop is closed however the book is still available to win!  (See the form at the bottom of this post).

The Fool For Books Giveaway Hop ~ April 1st to 2nd. It is a two day hop in honor of the fool.

We have one book on offer since this hop is so short. It is the soon to be released  Warm Bodies: a novel ~ by Isaac Marion. We have one copy for US|Canada only.

Initially released in the UK this book is being published in a variety of languages all over the planet, and is a romance story about a zombie!

Here’s the publisher’s blurb: 

R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He has no memories, nfool-for-books_thumb26o identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. His ability to connect with the outside world is limited to a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing.

After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His choice to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.

Zombies are really not my thing but I have to admit that I'm intrigued with this one.
