Ghoulishly Good Monster Mash Mix Up

Welcome to day one of my Ghoulishly Good Monster Mash Mix-Up.

For those of you who have never taken part in my Alpha Arcade challenges in the spring, I'll explain the procedures. :-)

You will find below, a Rafflecopter. In it are questions pertaining to certain books, characters, series, etc.... In the Alpha Arcade, they are all werewolf and shifter questions. Because this is a monster mix up, there will be questions pertaining to different types of monsters and paranormal or urban fantasy books. Each day from now through Halloween, I will add new questions. What type of questions will there be? Honestly? I try to mix it up. I don't like things to be toooooo easy or too difficult so I may ask a few multiple choice questions, some fill in the blank, some match up, and some strait forward who is this character questions. Anything goes! :D  Ahahahaha! Just so you know, only correct answers will count! All other entries will be deleted. It wouldn't be a very good challenge otherwise! :-)

In an effort to make it a little less overwhelming, after today, I am going to focus each day's questions on one type of monster. For example tomorrow we will talk about my favorite supe, werewolves. :-), the next day will be vampires, etc...

I will include the link to today's post with each new GGMMMU post, as each day's questions will be found in this Rafflecopter. In addition to this main challenge/giveaway, I will have other small prizes. Those will have their own Rafflecopter on the other days' posts.

In addition, if you are going to be here anyway, comment on the post each day or share the post in some way, and then be sure to enter my CIG for October (the links are up above. :D)

This Giveaway is open to all followers age 13 or older provided the prize offered is available to you. Ebooks will be awarded from Amazon, B&N, or Smashwords where available, any gift cards would come from Amazon, and print books would come from The Book Depository. 

There will be at least two winners of the main giveaway, three possibly depending on the number of participants.

I will email the winners and they will need to respond within 48 hours.

Please be sure to NEVER leave answers in the comments. All answers must be entered in the Rafflecopter ONLY.

Today, I gave you a few easy random questions and then I'm starting our Monster Mix Up with Aliens. They are not the first thing you think of when someone says monster but I think they fit anyway. :D

  • a·li·en [ áylyən ]
  • extraterrestrial being: a being from another planet or another part of the universe, especially in works of science fiction.

Here are a few possible choices for Alien books. :-)

Here's a few FREEBIES that I found on Amazon. Check to make sure they are still free before you purchase them. Also, sometimes the books are on sale on B&N or Smashwords as well. You can check if that interests you.

Taken by Storm (Beyond Ontariese) by Cyndi Friberg and Dar Albert

Shadows (A Lux Novella) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Collide (A Collide Novel) by Shelly Crane

Do you have a favorite Alien book that I DIDN'T mention? 

If not, have you read any of these???? 

I hope you have fun! Good luck!

Just a warning if you're not familiar with the song E.T. by Katy Perry, it may be offensive to some people. Don't watch it if you're not comfortable with steamy situations! ;-) I just thought this would be fitting!

  1. I quite liked Obsidian ( sadly the novella isn't free for international but i don't mind) i LOVE the kitty katt series with the lots of humours and romances^^, i don't know the others series/books you cited but i wouldn't mind discovering them

    to add to the free books about aliens the light within me by Carly fall is really good and free

    perfect day ( oki i did have an hesitation for the main question since 2qualify but i took the main one seemed simpler^^)

    Really thank you a lot for this event ( even more with what is happening) Remember to take time for you too

    1. Thanks Miki. The show must go on as they say. Life happens!

      Thanks for telling us about the other freebie. :D

      Good luck!.

    2. you know you can count on amber and me if needed so do what you need ( because sometimes keeping busy does help to)

    3. I do and I can't say how much that means to me. :-)

  2. The Lux series is really good and I like the Gena Showalter one. I also read one by Mary Wine that was pretty good. Alcandian Quest. Hm.. I wonder what your favorite is? ;)

    1. I am not very up to date on my alien reading. Of the one's I listed, I'm partial to the Brides of The Kindred series. I do have a few others that I like but I didn't list them. They are more on the erotic side and I don't think they are well known Oath of Seduction and Oath of Challenge by Marly Chance, also the Trek Mi Q'an series by Jaid Black. I just wish she would have finished the series. It kind of left us hanging without resolution. :-( Hearts of Ishira by Bethany Aan was good too!

    2. I have a couple of those but havent read them yet. I dont have very many in the ways of aliens either. The Mary Wine one was just one I found by random. The others are the only ones I really know.

  3. +JMJ+

    This is a fun activity! You always have the most interesting contests, Brenda. =)

    1. isn't she? And this year it's even better than before with all teh different supe^^

    2. Thanks. I think. Interesting does not equate with good. lol! I'm glad you're enjoying it.:D

      Miki, I hope it keeps up with your expectations! I'm thinking it may become an annual thing. :-)

    3. i would be waiting for it then^^ because i confim i love it! and seeing less know monster and completely new book are so fun!

  4. Aliens aren't really my favorite supernatural being, but I did enjoy Obsidian by JLA.

    1. They aren't my favorite either. That's why I've barely read any of them. I needed to put something on this post to start the questions with. I have so many wonderful monsters to share and I didn't want to waste my favorites on the short post so I thought, hmmm... aliens would fit there. :-) I hope you take the time to visit the other posts with the more appreciated monsters.
