Good luck!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I’m giving away some books! These are all books I’ve read and loved and recommend without reservation. Which means I’ll be buying actual, finished copies. Which means it’s time these ARCs did their job and got read and loved by other people.

To win, all you have to do is leave a comment here. No following anyone anywhere, no gimmicks. On August 22, I will use random.org to select a winner. Winner take all, open internationally. I’ll accept comments until midnight EST on Aug. 21.

The ARCs, in no particular order (pic below):

The Princess Curse by Merrie Haskell, Sept 6, 2011, HarperCollins Children’s

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, Sept 29, 2011, Putnam

Don’t Breath a Word by Holly Cupala, Jan 3, 2012, HarperTeen

Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos, Sept 13, 2011, Farrar, Straus and Giroux

and my VERY LAST ARC of

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, Sept 20, 2011, Greenwillow (signed!)

GOOD LUCK!!
