Summer Giveaway #1: Matched by Ally Condie (International)

So I did mention earlier this week that this summer I will be indulging you with what will hopefully be many, many giveaways of excellent books, both finished copies of books/series I've loved and ARCs. Let's start out big, shall we? I was lucky enough to get an extra ARC of the highly anticipated Matched by Ally Condie at BEA. For those of you who have been dying to get your hands on this book, here's a chance!

Synopsis:

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

I recently read this book and thought it was pretty good. Sounds like something you're interested in? Fill out the form below to be entered! Since this is such a highly anticipated book, I will open it internationally, and will end on Friday, July 2, 2010. Good luck, and if you spread the word for me, I'll be ever grateful!

  18. I so hope to read this book soon! Are you going to post a review for it? Most of the reviews I've read have been positive, but I'm curious what your thoughts are. Such a great giveaway! I'm still getting familiar with your site (which I love), so I have a couple questions. What are your rules for giveaways? Can you enter multiple times, or just once? And are the winners randomly selected? Thanks for all you do!

    Thanks for making this contest international! =)

    I chose "perfection" over passion--but as you can see from the scare quotes, I have some issues with the term. After all, to some people, passion is perfection! ;-) I suppose I'd choose practicality over passion: a good deal over a gamble. As unromantic as that may sound . . .
