GIVEAWAY! ARCs of CROSSED (Ally Condie) and THE FUTURE OF US (Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler)

This is my 100th post! And in celebration of how far this blog has progressed since I started it last April 1st, 2011, I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY!

(Yes, I thought I was fooling myself too on April Fool's Day by starting this blog, but with the help of WONDERFUL friends, I fortunately did NOT have to chuck this down blog-o-wasteland.)

More things to celebrate:

--10,000+ pageviews
--1300+ comments (including mine)
--aaannnd, this baby is 6 months old! Awww! I bet we can feed it solids now.

So what am I giving away, you ask? No, you can't have my Blu-Ray DVD, sorry. Or my sparkly tiara.


Crossed (Matched (Hardcover - Trilogy))

The Future of Us
Click on picture for my review.

Now for the rules... Rules? What rules? As long as you're a follower (since this is a celebration of YOU, for being a loyal, wonderful friend), you're in. Just leave me a comment telling me which one you must absolutely have.

There are going to be 2 WINNERS (one for each book, obviously. D'oh.) If you feel like you want to increase your chances of winning--and this is not mandatory at all--you can spread the news via Twitter, and I'll give you an extra point for every tweet or retweet. Just make sure you tag my Twitter handle so I won't miss it: @writercherie. If you're not on Twitter, you can clean my house and I'll give you extra 150 points! Nah, just kidding! Blogging about this giveaway will earn you an extra 5. Is that fair? I really don't want people to have to go through hoops and rings of fire, but at the same time I know those who don't tweet are at a disadvantage.

EDITED TO ADD: You can tweet and RT as many times as you want. I will total so no need to comment after every tweet. Thanks!

Contest ends next Wednesday, Sept. 21st at midnight, Mountain time.

That's it. Easy peasy. I've always believed that books are meant to be shared. Thanks to Jenny Phresh, for I won these books from her giveaway. I've enjoyed reading them, and now it's time for someone else to discover these wonderful novels. 

Good luck! And THANK YOU for being a part of my experience. <3

Don't enter me in the contest, sparkles! I just wanted to say CONGRATS!! I knew the first time I read your blog that you were a keeper. ;) I'll RT this!

Angela V. Cook said...

Congrats on those awesome stats!! Woo-hoo!

You can enter me for CROSSED, and I'll go ahead and tweet this :o)

Sher A. Hart said...

I'll take Crossed, which means I'll have to get a copy of Matched first. And I'm tweeting it, and since I have it set to post on Facebook, it'll go there too. Thanks!

Megan Conway said...

Well, since I just sunk my mind into MATCHED, I'll say I'd love to win CROSSED seeing as it's the sequel.

Congrats on the stats,

- Megan

J. A. Bennett said...

You are so fun! Thanks for being pretty awesome yourself. If I had to pick I think I would choose crossed :)

Peggy Eddleman said...

Saweet! Such awesome books! Put mine in the hat for Crossed.

Congrats on the 100 posts! And all the other numbers! That' so exciting and definitely something that deserves some big celebrating!

Anonymous said...

Aw cool! What a great giveaway! I would enjoy either book, but if given a choice would go for Crossed first!!!

Also your blogging stats are way better than mine! You are one popular lady. And deservedly so!

Congrats on the 100th post. I remember when you first started blogging. You've come a long way:)

I'd love to win the Future of Us. I've never read Matched, but I think I should hunt it down.

Jenny Phresh said...

Yes, yes, yes! Give backs! Books should be shared around and READ. Rah! (I'm not entering, but I think you knew that. :) I have sometimes left a book I finished on the subway or train and hoped that someone will come along and find it and enjoy it.

Marewolf said...

Me me mememememe! Crossed please :) Tweeting now. :)

Tracy N. Jorgensen said...

I don't think I have a favorite of the two. But I'll blog about this. It'll be up on Friday as always.

Munnaza said...

CONGRATULATIONS! Thanks so much for this giveaway! I'd love to enter (following you on GFC as infalliblyyours or Munnaza)! I'm actually incredibly excited for BOTH of these books, so I wouldn't mind either of them (Matched was one of my favorites, so of course I want to read Crossed, but I also LOVED Thirteen Reasons Why and I can't wait for Future of US). But if I MUST pick one, I'd say Future of US. I also tweeted about this giveaway here: http://twitter.com/#!/yoursinfallibly/status/114191605103210496
and I will be continuously spreading the word for more entries on my twitter account @yoursinfallibly (I'll make sure to add you). Thanks again and congrats!
