ARC Giveaway: In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis

One of my most anticipated upcoming September releases is Mindy McGinnis' In a Handful of Dust. This novel is the companion to last year's Not a Drop to Drink and I fully expect another strong, kickass heroine like Lynn... after all, Lynn raised this book's MC, Lucy. 

I've got an extra arc and it's going to one lucky entrant at The Hiding Spot!

The only thing bigger than the world is fear.

Lucy’s life by the pond has always been full. She has water and friends, laughter and the love of her adoptive mother, Lynn, who has made sure that Lucy’s childhood was very different from her own. Yet it seems Lucy’s future is settled already—a house, a man, children, and a water source—and anything beyond their life by the pond is beyond reach.

When disease burns through their community, the once life-saving water of the pond might be the source of what’s killing them now. Rumors of desalinization plants in California have lingered in Lynn’s mind, and the prospect of a “normal” life for Lucy sets the two of them on an epic journey west to face new dangers: hunger, mountains, deserts, betrayal, and the perils of a world so vast that Lucy fears she could be lost forever, only to disappear in a handful of dust.

In this companion to Not a Drop to Drink, Mindy McGinnis thrillingly combines the heart-swelling hope of a journey, the challenges of establishing your own place in the world, and the gripping physical danger of nature in a futuristic frontier.

Win It!

Giveaway ends August 24th, 2014. Open internationally. One winner.

  1. This is awesome! I'm actually giving away the matching bookmark for this ARC in my Blogoversary Swag Pack giveaway ( It would be cool if someone could win both and have matching stuff.

  2. Yay giveaway! I actually get a little sad when I see this book. I read Not a Drop to Drink and liked it, but was kind of underwhelmed/disappointed with it. I still want to give this one a try, but it might be a library pick.

  3. I just got My Heart and Other Black Holes, and I'm so excited to read it! I've only heard good things so far. I haven't heard of Althea and Oliver, but it sounds awesome! I'm so behind on the Gayle Forman train, and I'm always hesitant to read an author's work when they have a movie coming out and it's super hyped up (because I don't want to accidentally set my expectation level above reason). I will get to her stuff one day!

  4. I am SO excited for this one!!!! I loved the first book!
    Fingers crossed I win! ;)


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
