Happy Holiday Contest!

Well, since the pre-contest contest went so well, I officially have a book to feature in my Holiday contest! Thanks to everyone who voted for a book. From that pre-contest, six people get a leg up and automatically get one entry and are eligible for two so long as they enter this contest!

Those people are;

Cass (Words on Paper)

Jamie - I'm a guy, btw!

What's up for grabs is a copy of Lauren Oliver's Delirium which comes out on February 1, 2011! Also, since it will be Christmas, there may be a little something extra included! But that's going to be a surprise since I have no idea right now what it's even going to be.

And for the rules!

1. You must be a follower. You can be old or new, but follow you must.
2. You have to be eligible for The Book Depository's free shipping. You can check here to see if you are!
3. You must respond to this post with a comment stating your;
E-mail address (or a link to where you can be reached)
What you want most for the holidays this year - If you don't celebrate a winter holiday, than just whichever book you are most looking forward to in 2011.
4. You must respond to this post by December 24th.

So there you go! Happy Holidays everyone!

Hmmmm what do I want most for the holidays this year.... I am not sure if you mean which prezie do I want or if I want like health,love and all that.I am gonna go with prezies because it's a given we all want the others.
Prezies:apart from some video games I crave,and some clothes and some shoes(not much,eh?)I'd love me some new books!!!I would love to buy Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, Choker by Elizabeth Woods, Book Of Spell by Kate Brian, Slice Of Cherry by Dia Reeves.Of course many many more, but they're the ones that come out shortly, so I want to have them :)
Thanks for the contest!

What I most want is good health for my entire family. My husband and I both do not have very good health right now.
I would like to see whether Laura Brodie is bringing out any new books in 2011. A Widows Season was for me an excellent book.

Brodie said...

Pick me, pick me, pick me! Happy Holidays to you, too :)

Name: Brodie
Well over here in the Southern Hemisphere, I don't celebrate a 'winter' holiday - rather a simmering hot inferno known as summer :D Well apart from the peace on earth which sadly never seems to come true, I'll go with what I'm looking forward to in 2011. Definitely Richelle Mead's spin-off series of Vampire Academy, Delirium (obviously!), Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr, oooh and I'm really excited for Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. I love greek mythology!

Thanks for the awesome contest!!

Jamie - I'm a guy, btw! said...

Thanks for the extra entry!

Name: Jamie
I'm with Brodie on the whole 'winter' thing - too hot in the south to feel like Christmas. So I'm hoping for some cold weather this year! And I'm also super-excited for Divergent to hit the shelves...gonna be so good!

Thanks for the contest!

What you want most for the holidays this year - I'm actually a really boring person to shop for for the holidays--I just want things like books and clothes, which I typically enjoy buying for myself, so I ask for gift cards. The book that I'm most looking forward to is Demon's Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan, but unfortunately it won't be out in time to go under the Christmas tree.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Ammy Belle said...

Hey - thanks so much for this contest! This book has been on my radar for awhile now, and it would be super cool if I ended up winning it! :)

That being said, here are my deets:

And what I want most for the holidays this year ... hm... I think I will have to go with Lauren Willig's Mischief of the Mistletoe, which is already on its way to me ... so barring that, I would have to say, maybe Richelle Mead's Last Sacrifice and Maggie Steifvater's Forever - I am basically chomping at the bit for those two ...

Thanks again for the contest and keep up the good blogging work! :D

What I want most for Christmas is money to help fund my horseback riding obsession. No one except my horseback riding friends understand, so I doubt I'll get all that much...

What you want most for the holidays this year - I totally want this game that I just discovered today. It's called Just Dance (on Wii) and all you have to do is mimick the person dancing on the screen with the controller in your hand and earn some points! It's pretty neat and it's the perfect workout (as I love love love to work out and run). And bookwise, I am pining for and will always be pining for a cool copy of John Green's book, Looking for Alaska. Thank you for this giveaway! Lauren Oliver is the best. :)

I already recieved my gift, which was a new flute! I am so grateful for it, and wouldn't mind if it was my Christmas for quite a few years. I love it. Best gift ever. :)
I am looking forward to more Anna Godbersen! I hope the sequel to Bright Young Things comes out in 2011, although I'm not certain. Otherwise, very much looking forward to Kieran Scott's He's So Not Worth It.

Great Contest! :-) Merry Christmas!
