100th Follower Contest!

It took me a few days to figure out what exactly I was going to do for this contest. I wish that I could give away tons of books, but alas, my book supply is limited. So, I thought I would do something a little different in terms of contests. I'm going to have a pre-order contest. I got the idea from Fantastic Book Review (so I should give her credit).

The Rules:

US & Canada only. I'm not really sure what the shipping is like from online bookstores...so we'll just play it safe.

There will be one winner (depending on the response to the contest), and that winner can tell me which book they would like me to pre-order for them. Once the book is released, it will get shipped directly to them.


Some Possible Books to Pre-Order

The Cupcake Queen by Heather Hepler
The Everafter by Amy Huntley
Betrayals by Lili St. Crow
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Gateway by Sharon Shinn
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Tangled by Carolyn Mackler
Liar by Justine Larbalesteir


Leave me a comment and your email to enter. If you don't leave me an email I won't have any way to get in touch with you, and will have to draw a new name.

Extra Entries:
+1 if you become a follower
+2 if you were already a follower
+ 1 If you post about this contest somewhere (i.e your sidebar)
+1 If you twitter about it (please @reply me I'm @cornucopiaofluv)
+5 if you guess which of the follow statements about me is a lie, and you're right (I wanted to add some fun, give people a chance for extra entries, and make it simple to do).

I play the flute
I love to cook
I used to have a pet turtle named Teddy

Contest ends September 14 at midnight EST

Awesome contest! If I win, I'd love to have a pre-order for Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse by Kaleb Nation, although since that will be released by the end of this contest, if that doesn't count I'll go for Splendor by Anna Godbersen.

Hi Lizzy! Awesome contest. I love the lie thing. You don't need to enter me. I won in the last one and none of those books are ones that I'm particularly looking forward to except Liar, and i got a copy at ALA already. So, I'm just here to guess your lie. :) And to say congrats, of course!

So I'm guessing you don't play the flute. I'm really hoping you have a pet turtle named Teddy, because that just rocks. I love turtles. I want to get one.
