EPIC Signed ARC Giveaway

Every time I think about this giveaway, I get that Pitbull song stuck in my head. You know the one . . .

I know you want me*. 
You know I want cha.

*Clearly, the "me" in this situation isn't ME me, but the ARCs. They're singing to you, babies. SINGING.

ARC: The Name of the Star (SIGNED by Maureen Johnson)
ARC:
Lola and the Boy Next Door (by Stephanie Perkins)
ARC:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (SIGNED by Laini Taylor)
ARC:
Every You, Every Me (SIGNED by David Levithan)
ARC:
The Girl of Fire and Thorns (By Rae Carson)

And now, are you singing for them too???

(If, by some weird chance, you haven't heard of one of these, click on the title for its Goodreads description.) 

See, here's the thing: I know how badly some of you wanted to be at ALA this year. So I made it my goal to nab some of the absolute best ARCs available, and then spread the joy with you. And this, my friends, is just the beginning!

Watch for my reviews of these books in the coming weeks--starting with Rae Carson's The Girl of Fire and Thorns. (I just finished it, and ZOMGWTFBBQ* it's amazing.)

The deal is this . . .

The contest
  • is open internationally
  • is easy to enter 
    • all you have to do is leave your name / email / location / book choice (in the form)
  • has lots of ways to earn extra entries (see the form)
  • closes August 5th


GOOD LUCK, LOVIES!!

*For the record, I've never used the expression zomgwtfbbq in my life. That's how good Rae's book is.
