Weekly Giveaway Roundup

IT LIVES!!!! (WGR: I live!!! Wheeee!!! *think Calcifer from Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle and you have an idea of WGR's voice.) I never want to stop doing this because it's a great opportunity to help others look out for current giveaways around the blogsophere--it just...went on vacation for a while due to my end of the semester. But since I only have one final left, and it's one that I'm telling myself not to stress out about, I am going to reinstate it... now!

Steph over at Reviewer X has an self-proclaimed epic contest for The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams. There are up to 50 copies of the book being given away, so you don't want to miss that, do you? Check it out! The giveaway ends June 1. You should also tell her that you heard about it from me... although you probably didn't, it's been so highly publicized already. :]

I've just found Beth's blog and she's having a great Massive Book Giveaway . Of course, that's not the only reason I'm now following her blog. She's a teacher of YA lit and blogs about related stuff. Which is all totally up my alley. Go check out her blog and her giveaway! Ends May 16.

Lanna at Bloggers Heart Books is having a "Pick Yer Poison" (I didn't come up with the term, but I piratized it, yarr. You like?) giveaway with a bunch of great choices for prizes. Check out the Winner's Choice contest. It ends May 22.

Also, please check out my post on a wonderful giveaway that Maggie Stiefvater, author of Lament and the upcoming werewolf story, Shiver, is hosting. It's your chance to win an ARC of Shiver as well as signed copies of Lament! Check out my post about it here, follow the instructions, then go to Maggie's LiveJournal to let her know you found out about it from me. Thank you! This giveaway ends May 15, so don't waste any time!

Finally, there are only a few days left (ends May 13) to enter my Support Teen Lit Giveaway if you haven't already. Lots of great books, old and new, to be won, and numerous winners. Head on over!

Check out the KidLit Contest Page for new autographed books, all the time! This week you can win either Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman, TMI by Sarah Quigley, or Sliding on the Edge by C. Lee McKenzie. Good luck! Ends May 13 at midnight.

Boy, that should keep you busy for a while, shouldn't it? :)


  1. Is it bad that I have a serious crush on Miyazaki's Howl? I'm sorry, but his blonde hair and Christian Bale's voice? Yum.

  2. Nothing wrong with that at ALL!!!! I have a crush on him too. Actually, I have a crush on a lot of Miyazaki male characters. :]

  3. Haha you're so cute Steph, thanks for all the links!

  4. Thanks for all the links! This is great :-) And i had a crush on Howl before i even saw the movie. lol. Miyazaki just made it worse.

  5. You are a star.
    It must have something to do with the name Steph. I've never met a Steph I didn't like :-)
