Scholastic and Dina of Big Honco Media have given me this amazing opportunity of hosting an amazing CATCHING FIRE GIVEAWAY! Seriously, if I weren't myself, I'd totally enter my own contest. Because look at what you can get!

Three (3) lucky winners will receive:
  • very limited edition promotional T-shirt (only 300 made!)
  • collectible gold mocking jay pin
  • copy of Catching Fire
If you're a visual kind of person, check out the book trailer:

And here are some more visuals you'll want to see: the beautiful cover of Catching Fire (which you could own!!) and that t-shirt.

Oh man. That t-shirt. It's gorgeous. I want that t-shirt.

If you've been living under a rock for the past year, check out the official Hunger Games website for more information, as well as to read the first chapter of Catching Fire.

To enter: Just leave your email address, and preferably something interesting/funny/relevant/rip-roaringly unique to keep me entertained. :)

Ends: Friday, September 25, 2009

Good luck!


  1. I haven't read Hunger Games yet because I have heard so many mixed reviews about it! But what better than a contest for the second book to get me motivated enough to read it!! I hope I win this and can enjoy the books as much as everyone else!!


  2. I've heard splendid things about The Hunger Games and was recently able to get it though I haven't had the chance to read it. I just know I'll like it though. I would love to win this.


  3. **Jumping up and down**

    Pick me! Pick me!

    If you haven't noticed I would really like to win!


  4. In response to the person above who hasn't read the Hunger Games because of mixed reviews... exactly where did you find said reviews? Every single one I've read gave the book 4-6 out of 5 stars =o)

    I want that shirt. And the pin.


  5. Oohh--I want a pin...
    consider me entered...

    NotNessie, I've only read good reviews about Hunger Games although I have read mixed reviews about the sequel

  6. I loved Hunger Games and can't wait to read Catching Fire!!!!


  7. Oh man, I want this so bad. I would wear that shirt so proudly.

  11. If it didn't suck to be me today I would totally allow you to enter your own contest through me Steph =D

    P.S. This giveaway rocks my socks. I have a serious thing for t-shirts. Which sucks btw because I work in an office sometimes and have no dressy shirts. Just can't help my love for graphic tees <33

    1. no person's name has the same # of letters as his/her favorite color

  20. Cool. Please enter me. But I've just realized I mustn't be a visual kind of person since I so rarely click on videos. Maybe it's just that I don't have a visual kind of computer.

  46. Well, not so sure this will be funny to you...but this past weekend a bunch of my friends met up in Chicago for a weekend vacation (we all live across the US). My friend, Billy, saw who he thought was me from behind so he walked up to "me" and said "high five". Well, it turns out it wasn't me and the girl gave Billy a weird look and then a high five. It was probably funnier hearing him tell it, but it made us cry we were laughing so hard!


  47. OMG! I'd love to read this! You know when the Clone Wars came out in theaters? My friend and I were the only ones dressed up (we had the cloaks, lightsabers, and all that jazz!) and people were all like "hey you guys are cool" but then later, when we entered the movie theaters, there were these guys all pimped out in super realistic Stormtrooper and Darth Vader costumes! Gah! And we didn't even have a camera too! Totally stole our thunder! Haha. =P.


  48. I would love to win this. The shirt is awesome and I would love to wear it to show my support for Katniss. I think she is such a great role model.

    Pretty good, eh?

    Thanks for letting me enter anyway...


  69. Çan't think of a thing that's funny right now. Just got my Social Security update in the mail today and saw how much I'll be able to receive monthly when I retire. Guess I'm not retiring LOL (not truly funny though-nope not funny at all)


  70. If I had that shirt, I'd have yet another obscure reference shirt with which to confuse my coworkers, which is always awesome.

    This book sounds incredible. When I first heard the synopsis for the 1st book in the series, Hunger Games, I thought "Oh, that's been done before," but the more I learn about it, the more I'm drawn in. I need to read these books!
