#BIR2011: SHIFT by Jeri Smith-Ready - Recap and Giveaway

Best I've Read 2011: Day 2

So many great authors and books on this year's BIR list. Make sure you head over to the Best I've Read blog to see what we have in store for you today over there, and don't forget to check out the BIR schedule for the rest of the week so you don't miss a thing.

I have read many great books this year, but just a handful of them really got their claws into me and wouldn't let go. Unfortunately, I was only able to pick two of them out of that small group. The only hard part was trying to narrow them down. 

My first pick for this week is Shift, book 2 in the Shade Trilogy, by Jeri Smith-Ready. Jeri was featured on BIR 2010 last year for not one, but two books, and will most likely make my  list every year she releases another book. There is nothing she has written that I don't love, and Shift is no exception.
Shift was the first book I read this year. And even after reading it that first time many months ago, I knew it would be on my top list of favorites for this year. And you can check out my original review of Shift here

We have one copy of Shift to give away. Make sure to fill out the form at the end of the post.

Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready
Release Date: May 3, 2011 (and when I say this was the first book I read this year, I was fortunate enough to get my eyes on an ARC. I did not wait until May to read my first book of the year. LOL)
Published by Simon Pulse

Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

About the author:

Award-winning author Jeri Smith-Ready lives in Maryland with her husband, two cats, and the world’s goofiest greyhound.
Jeri's plans to save the earth were ruined when she realized she was more of a “problem maker” than a problem solver. To stay out of trouble, she keeps her Drama Drive strictly fictional. Her friends and family appreciate that.
When not writing, Jeri she can usually be found—well, thinking about writing, or on Twitter. Like her characters, she loves music, movies, and staying up very, very late. (from

Jeri is currently hard at work putting the final touches on Shine, the final book in the Shade Trilogy due out May1, 2012. Personally, I think that is too long to have to wait, but it will definitely be worth it.  To find out more about Jeri Smith-Ready and The Shade Trilogy as well as her numerous other books/series go to You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter
