Giveaway - Gods Behaving Badly

** This giveaway is now closed. Check at the top of the sidebar for current giveaways!***
Here's your chance to win one of five (!) copies of Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips courtesy of Hachette Books.

What's it about?

"Being a Greek god is not all it once was. Yes, the twelve gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse-and none too happy about it. And they've had to get day jobs: Artemis as a dog-walker, Apollo as a TV psychic, Aphrodite as a phone sex operator, Dionysus as a DJ. Even more disturbingly, their powers are waning, and even turning mortals into trees-a favorite pastime of Apollo's-is sapping their vital reserves of strength.Soon, what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills. Two perplexed humans, Alice and Neil, who are caught in the crossfire, must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed-but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world?

I have always been interested in Mythology, and this book sounds like a fun twist on it. I'd love to read how the author portrays the behaviour of the twelve Greek Gods and Goddesses in modern day London !

I would love to win this one.
Thinking of all these temperamental Gods under one roof has to be a riot, besides being scary. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Happy Holiday everyone.
