Kim: Maggie Stiefvater/Linger giveaway!

Okay guys, for today, instead of reviews and music recs, I'm going to be announcing a giveaway :)

On July 20th is the Linger release party in Richmond, which is about an hour from me. I'll be going, and I plan to bring back a signed copy. Also, a few weeks back I won a signed Shiver/Linger bookmark from Maggie over twitter.

So, I'll be giving both of those away. First prize is a signed hardcover copy of Linger, which I will send to the winner after I get it at the release party.

And, second prize gets the signed bookmark!

Alright, so you automatically get an entry for commenting, and answering this question:

What was y
our favorite part or scene in Shiver?

And you get extra entries this way:

+2 for being an old blog follower (instructions on how to follow blog through blogger can be found below)
+1 for being a new blog follower
+2 for being an old follower of the blog twitter
+1 for being a new follower of the blog twitter
+1 for following my twitter
+1 for following Catie's twitter
+1 for following Megan's twitter
+5 for blogging about the contest
+2 for putting the contest in your sidebar
+2 for putting us in your blog roll
+1 for advertising the contest over twitter/facebook/etc (up to 3 points)
+3 for referring someone to the contest
+3 for being referred

And if you want to follow the blog through blogger, in the upper right corner under the login section, it says " log in with openID." Type in your blog url, and it will take you to blogger where you need to log in. Then, it will ask for your permission and you say yes. And that will sign you into LJ using blogger. Click the validate email link, and then enter your email address. It will email you a link, and you click it. Then you're good to go!

The contest ends on July 2nd, and the winner will be announced in Em's Monday post on July 5th. This contest is international, by the way.

Good luck, everyone!

Ok, my fave part of Shiver is easily the moment when Sam takes Grace to the golden woods and then afterward at Beck's house. I dunno why, but there's something really sweet about that moment that I love.

Correction
I made a mistake with my twitter post I said Shiver instead of Linger (thanks Em!)

So here is the corrected link http://twitter.com/SilverSparrow04/status/16774318144

I loved Shiver. I liked the part where Sam is working in the book store and he wants Grace to recognize him. Another part I enjoyed is when they go to the Golden Woods. I also loved the ending.

I review books, movies, and music. Occasionally, other things that catch my attention.
Movies: I'm into everything. From Horror to Drama, Sci Fi to Comedy, Animated to Indie.
Books: Mostly I read Urban Fantasy, whether it's adult or YA. I'm also into Mystery, Thriller, and Romance (the paranormal variety or otherwise).
Music: The only music I don't like is Bluegrass, Rap, and Metal. Everything else I'm very open to.


Tegan: 19, Bookaholic, Aunt I love kids

About Me:
I review mostly books. Movies if I love them, or really hate it, I’ll review it too.
Movies: I love Animated, Chick Flick, and Action Adventure
Books: I read mostly YA, Fantasy favorites are: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins And Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz
Music: Three Days Grace (seen them twice they are amazing live), Paramore, Lady Gaga (cause she's so fun to dance too).


Kim: 18, a tendency toward peculiarity and acting older than she really is. Can't live without music, books, and movies.

About Me:
I review books, movies, and music. I also tend to have very eclectic tastes when it comes to all of those categories.
Movies: I'm more into drama, horror, indie, and comedies. I dislike romantic comedies or romances, but could enjoy them if I am in the right mood.
Books: I tend to focus on fiction of various kinds. Fantasy, YA, Sci Fi, Romance, Paranormal romance. I have no preference, I just like good writing and creativity.
Music: Listen to everything under the sun except rap and country. At times, I am endearingly called an indie snob, and I like to open other people's ears to new sounds and bands that deserve to be heard.


If we don't like something we will always point out as many good points as possible and follow it up with the bad. If we absolutely hated it, chances are we just won't post about it at all. No one wants to read a rant about how much something disappointed. That's what friends are for. :)
