G is for Giveaway! (Lucky Me, Lucky You!)

If you’ve read my blog and/or followed me on Twitter for any length of time, you might know that I’m pretty lucky when it comes to giveaways. Random number generators must love me, because I win books much more often than is reasonable. It’s exciting and wonderful, and I’m always incredibly grateful for the generosity of my fellow writers and for the new books that appear magically in my mailbox. So, I think it’s time to spread the love. 🙂

Lucky Me, Lucky You!

Two winners will be chosen randomly to receive either:

A SIGNED copy of John Green’s The Fault in our Stars (open internationally)…

The Fault in Our Stars


A book of the winner’s choice (up to $20) from The Book Depository (winner must live where The Book Depository ships!). Might I recommend a few of my recent favorites? Pandemonium, The Disenchantments, Wanderlove, A Million Suns, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, The Scorpio Races, and Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but, of course, if you win, you choose!

The Book Depository

Wondering about the rules of the giveaway? They’re simple:

1. For one entry, leave a comment telling me about a 2012 release you’ve read and loved OR name a book that’s coming out in 2012 that you’re dying to read.

2. The giveaway closes one week from today, Saturday, April 14th, at midnight, PST. (I will post the winner’s name on Monday, April 16th).

3. Once the two winners’ names are posted, the first to email me will have first choice of the prize they prefer (The Fault in our Stars OR The Book Depository book). The second winner to email will receive the remaining prize.

4. Want to earn additional entries?

  1. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! Pick me! Pick me!

    *ahem* Thanks for the giveaway, Katy. 🙂 Oh, and two releases I’m most looking forward to: Insurgent and Nevermore.

    I’m an old (young at heart) subscriber, I’m a tweet peep, and I tweeted about the giveaway. +6 for me. Thanks again, Katy!

  2. Thanks for the giveaway! There are so many 2012 releases I want to read – Wanderlove, the Disenchantments, In Honor…

    +1 for following on Twitter (I’d follow you on GFC, if WordPress would let me :))

    So two total entries

    • Just to let you know, Jen, you can follow via GFC. There’s a button at the top of my right sidebar that’ll connect you to a “landing” page where you can subscribe to this WordPress blog and receive its updates in your Blogger Dashboard. Just let me know if you decide to follow that way, and I’ll include your additional entry. 🙂

  3. G for Giveaway is a great idea! Hmmm…I love Hallowed by Cynthia Hand. Don’t worry about putting me in the contest…but good luck to those who enter!

  4. Yay! I love giveaways! 🙂 Hmm, there are so many books coming out in 2012 that I’d love to read, but the one that’s sticking out right now to me is I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga.

    You are definitely the King Midas of blog giveaways 😀 You passed the torch to me for a bit, but I think now it’s been passed back to you. Maybe it’ll be me again soon? lol

  6. A 2012 release I really enjoyed was UNRAVELING by Elizabeth Norris (coming out in a few weeks). And, of course, I’m looking forward to INSURGENT–but who isn’t?! 🙂

  7. EEEH thanks for the giveaway, Katy! You’re a dear. ❤ One book I'm dying (dying dying dying dying) to read is Thou Shalt Not Road Trip by Antony John. I am in absolute love with his previous Five Flavors of Dumb</em (I seriously can't say enough good things about it), and TSNRT comes out in 5 days! I'm so excited. 😀

    Great G post, Katy – thanks for the Giveaway!

  18. Thanks so much for this giveaway! I’d love to enter! I loved Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which was released in January. And The Fault in Our Stars by John Green was absolutely beautiful (I’d love to actually own it). I also really loved the new Gallagher Girls book, Out of Sight, Out of Time, which was released last month. I’m really looking forward to reading This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers, which will be out later this year.

    The 2012 release I’ve read and loved was The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan,I got so addicted to this series I just couldn’t stop reading!Too bad this was the last book,I really think she should write more book to this wonderful series!

  26. Such an awesome giveaway! So far the best book I’ve read in 2012 is TFIOS. So I’m entering the giveaway, but if I end up winning the book vs. the Book Depository prize, I’ll pass so someone else can win it.
