The "Spread the Love" ARC giveaway!

Ever since I got back from ALA I have been promising you guys some epic ARC contests to share my spoils--and now that WriteOnCon is over, I FINALLY had a chance to organize one. So I've selected four from my stash which I *suspect* you're all going to be pretty exited about, and I give you: The "Spread the Love" ARC giveaway. Here's what's up for grabs today:


(Hee... I feel like I need a drumroll...)


CROSSED, by Ally Condie

The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.
Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.



SHATTER ME, by Tahereh Mafi

Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old-girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting asThe Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices,Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel




PERFECT, by Ellen Hopkins

Everyone has something, someone, somewhere else that they’d rather be. For four high-school seniors, their goals of perfection are just as different as the paths they take to get there.

Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never have understood.

Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?

A riveting and startling companion to the bestselling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins's Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up and grow into our own skins, our own selves.





THE SCORPIO RACES, by Maggie Stiefvater

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Shiver and Linger comes a brand new, heartstopping novel.

With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff--with more than just their lives at stake should they lose.




Yes--I'm serious. I'm really giving all of those away. It's KILLING me more than a little to part with them--but you guys deserve an awesome contest. So I'm spreading the love.

And I'm hoping that you guys will do the same. The thing about ARCs is, as much as we all get excited about getting to read the awesome upcoming books before everyone else, that's not why the publishers print them. They print them to build buzz, and hopefully garner some reviews, either on blogs, Goodreads, Amazon, B&N, whatever. So while I can't require it (because I would have no way of enforcing it) I'm REALLY hoping that the four lucky winners of these prizes will take the time to spread the love forward a bit, and post a review for them SOMEWHERE. Shoot, even if you just tweet about how excited you are to read it, you're helping spread the word. Wouldn't you want people to do the same for your book someday?

Okay--on to the rules! And let's keep this simple and easy (cause... uh... I'm still recovering from WriteOnCon). I have 4 prizes, so there will be 4 winners. To enter, make sure you're following my blog and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 pm PDT on Saturday, September 3rd. Winners will be posted on Sunday, September 4th. International entries welcome.

If there's one prize in particular that you're absolutely DYING for, go ahead and mention it in your comment and if you win I'll try to match it accordingly. But since winning is random, there's no guarantee you'll get your #1 choice. With prizes this awesome though, you really can't go wrong with any of them.

Also, since this contest is about spreading the love, (and I'm sure a lot of you are dying for extra chances to win) I'm willing to reward you with extra entries if you spread the word about the contest. I'll give one extra entry if you blog/tweet/FB about it (so if you do all three, that would give you a maximum total of four entries).  Just let me know what you did in your comment, so I can count your entries accordingly.

Any questions? Leave them in the comments.

And... GO!

  3. I so agree that it's important to spread the word on ARCS. I just won Crossed--yea!--and plan to give it away on my blog once my daughter and I read it.

    I'd love to win The Scorpio Races really bad. Or I'd like to read Shatter Me.

    I posted the contest on Facebook. Thanks for sharing your ARCS. We appreciate it.

I think Crossed and Shatter Me might be on the top of my list, but I know the seniors in the English classes my husband teaches would love to get their hands on Perfect.
