Freebie Friday: Imposters Giveaway

Contests, Freebie Fridays

Hello Dear Readers!

And happy Friday! Since I’m trying to get back on track with this whole blogging thing I figured it would be fun to celebrate with a giveaway!

Today, I am giving one lucky winner a chance to win a copy of Imposter written by Scott Westerfeld.  One lucky winner, eighteen (18) and over residing in the United States will win a hardcover copy of Westerfeld’s highly anticipated Imposters. This giveaway will be open from 8:00 am on October 26th until 11:59 pm on Friday November 2nd. One winner will be selected via random number generator, and will be contacted via e-mail on Saturday November 3rd. If a response isn’t received by Sunday 11:59 pm on November 4th, a new winner will be selected and e-mailed.

Imposters by Scott Westerfeld:

“Frey and Rafi are inseparable … but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s double, raised in the shadows of their rich father’s fortress. While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life. Frey has never been out in the world on her own – until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a dangerous deal. Everyone thinks she’s her sister – but Col, the son of a rival leader, is starting to get close enough to tell the difference. As the stakes grow higher and higher, Frey must decide whether she can trust him – or anyone in her life.” – from Goodreads.com

Want a chance to win this book? To enter you first must subscribe to The BookBandit blog, and also must leave a comment on THIS post telling me what’s your favorite book series?

Boss Babes: A Coloring & Activity Book for Grown-Ups by Michelle Volansky

Before getting into the fine print, let me give you some background about this book. The first thing you need to know is that it’s AWESOME! Seriously, awesome! Workman Publishing Company contacted me a few months back asking if I would want to participate in a project they were putting together. Because this book celebrates women, celebrates our strengths, our wisdom, our beauty, and everything that makes women the wonderful beings we are. I jumped at the chance to participate in such a project. And on October 17th I posted my fave Boss Babes page (that I colored myself!) on my social media. In case you didn’t see it then, I colored the Lady Gaga page.

To spread the Boss Babe love, Workman Publishing gave me an extra copy to give away to a fellow Boss Babe!

And today, I’m giving away that extra copy. Why today? Because let’s be honest — Lorelai Gilmore is a Boss Babe! She’s strong, independent, and quick-witted – and she’s raised her daughter to be the same way.

So, how do you enter? You must be 13 years old or older and live in the United States to enter this giveaway. Giveaway is open from today (November 18th) and will run until 11:59 pm on Thursday November 24th (Thanksgiving).

One winner will be selected at random on Friday November 25th (Gilmore Girl Day!!) and will be contacted via e-mail. Winner will have two days (until November 27th) to respond to e-mail with a valid mailing address. If response is not received within that time period a new winner will be selected and contacted. So when entering please make sure to enter a valid e-mail address.

Wrapped Reads (GIVEAWAY!!)

Contests

Hello Readers!

At my library we are currently hosting Blind Date with a Book. Have you ever heard of that, dear readers? No. Well, let me explain. Through out the adult and young adult sections of the library we have several books on display, all of which have been wrapped up in beautiful wrapping paper. We encourage library patrons to pick any one of the books, based on the few given clues, and check the item out.

I personally love this idea, even though the thought of checking out a book blindly makes me a bit nervous since I don’t love reading outside of my comfort zone.

I did this once before, and even though it may or may not have been my biggest success here on the blog, I have decided to give it a whirl. Yes, I’m here with another edition of wrapped readers!

A year or so ago I hosted a giveaway called wrapped reads.  I offered up several books for giveaway, but the catch was they were all wrapped up in beautiful wrapping paper. Since perspective winners didn’t know what they were winning, I gave clues as to what the book was.

I thought it was a fun idea. So much so that I decided to do it once again!

Today I am giving away two books! One is an older young adult book, and the other is an ARC of a pretty popular ya sci-fi book.

Book 1:

IMG_2136

Hints:

  • Recently reviewed this book on The BookBandit Blog
  • About an up and coming rock band
  • Main character proves to herself and to everyone around her that she can do anything.

Book 2

IMG_2135

Hints:

  • Hardcover ARC
  • Young adult, sci-fi set in the year 2575.
  • Told through various documents … emails,  chat transcripts, interviews, reports, etc..

The fine print:

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents ages thirteen years old and older. Giveaway will run from Thursday February 25 (noon) until Thursday March 3rd (11:59 pm). To enter this giveaway, comment on THIS blog post telling me what was the last book you have read and loved.  When commenting make sure to leave a valid e-mail address.

Two winners will be selected via random number generator, and will be informed via e-mail on Friday March 4th. If selected winner does NOT respond to e-mail notification within two days, a new winner will be selected and notified.

Good luck! And happy guessing!

Me, Earl, & The Dying Girl

Contests

MeEarl&TheDyingGirl

Hello Readers!

Me, Earl, & The Dying Girl written by Jesse Andrews is one of those books that has been on my to read list FOREVER! Seriously, FOREVER! And I’m ashamed to admit this, but somehow this book slipped through the cracks and I have yet to get around to actually reading it!

Now that the movie is coming out, I really am kicking myself for not reading this book sooner. You see, I’m a real sucker for book to movie adaptions. Some I really like (Hunger Games, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and some I sadly don’t (The Lightning Thief). But no matter my feelings AFTER I’m always excited about these movies!

So with all that being said, YES! I will be reading this book … soon(ish). And YES! I will most definitely be going to see this movie while it’s in the theaters!

In celebration of this book, and the upcoming movie it has been adapted to,  I decided to host a little giveaway. I have acquired a paperback copy (not realizing that I already had a copy of it at home) of Me, Earl, & The Dying Girl while at Book Expo America 2015.

This giveaway is open to all U.S. residents ages thirteen years old and older. It will run from June 12, 2015 (12:01 am) until June 19, 2015 (11:59 pm). One winner will be selected via random generator, and will be notified via e-mail. Winner will have until June 21, 2015 at 11:59 pm to respond to e-mail with shipping information. If response isn’t received by then, a new winner will have to be selected.

This is a a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good Luck! And if you’ve read or have seen Me, Earl, & The Dying Girl please let me know what you think!

Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures!

Contests

Is finally in the wild! And available for all of us book lovers to devour and love!

PipBartlett

Hello Readers!

In celebration of the publication of Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures by Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pierce I decided to do a giveaway!

As luck would have it, not only did the wonderful people over at Scholastic give me a finished copy, but fellow blogger and in real life BFF Miss Print gave me an ARC of this highly anticipated book. Generally, I’m not a book collector (mainly because of space limitations) I’ve decided to share the wealth and give one lucky blog reader the chance to win this ARC.

So, obviously one lucky winner will have the chance to win an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magica Creatures. And for an added bonus I’ll through in some goodies/swag.

23310214

This giveaway is open to all U.S. Residents ages 13 years and older. This giveaway will be running from May 2nd until May 9th. One winner will be randomly selected and will be notified via e-mail on May 10th. Winner will have two days to reply to e-mail with mailing information. If no response is recieved a new winner will be selected.

That’s all there is! Good luck!

Since this is a Spooktacular Giveaway, I thought it would be fun to giveaway one of my favorite scary story books. As a child I poured over this book’s pages.  I memorized scary stories to tell me friends, and I sang relentlessly about never laughing as a hearse passes by. That’s right! I’m giving away…

Everyone ages 13 years and older, living within the United States is welcome to enter this Spooktacular Giveaway.  Giveaway is open from 12:01 am on October 15th, and will run until 11:59 pm on October 31st.  Winner will be contacted via e-mail on Saturday November 1st, and will have two days (48 hours) to respond to e-mail with shipping information.

To enter this giveaway hop, simply leave a comment on THIS blog post telling me what your most favorite scary book/story is (mine is a toss up between Carrie by Stephen King and Bliss by Lauren Myracle). Remember when commenting, please leave a valid e-mail address. One winner will be selected by random number generator.

That’s really all you need to know!

Before ending this post, I just want to say two things – one a big THANK YOU to Kathy over at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting such a great giveaway hop.
