"Insurgent" Giveaway

In a fantastical feat of convergence (AHAHA. Yes, I completely understand if you unfollow me for that punny one), looky at what just arrived here at Pretty HQ:


Turns out one of my BFFs and I both knew I needed this on the very first day of release - how awesome is that? - so I ended up with TWO copies. I may have done a little dance on my front porch when I found this double delivery, and you know that wasn't a Pretty picture.

What is Pretty, though, is that instead of returning one of these, I'm giving one copy of Veronica Roth's "Insurgent" to one stupendously lucky reader, per the following entry guidelines:

1) Leave me one comment - and only one - including your email address.

That's it. I mean, it wouldn't hurt if you also liked my Facebook page or Tweeted the bejeezus out of this, but, as that old song goes, I can't make you love me. Besides, I'd rather do as our heroine Tris here does and earn your respect by being kickass. Actually, that's not true at all - I'll take your fanboy/girlism however I can wrangle it - but I figure that's the right thing to say, eh?

Other Boring Contest Rules in Bold Font: Since this giveaway is entirely on my dime, I have to limit entries to those of you with a continental US mailing address. Rest of the World, I still cherish you and hope to visit soon (unless you're Malaysia, in which case I've seen quite enough - I just wasn't that into you. It's not you, it's me.)

ALSO - your entry doesn't count if you don't leave me a valid email address. ALSO ALSO - if I don't like your shoes, your odds aren't looking good either.

Entries will close at 11:59 pm CST on Thursday, May 3rd. Yes, you have a mere 36 hours to enter. I'll pick a winner via Random.org; he/she will be notified by me via email and on this site and will have 48 hours in which to send me shipping info. If I don't hear from the winner by then, I'll pick again.

Bookworm Note: "Insurgent" picks up right where "Divergent" left off without much in the way of preamble (you can read my handy dandy "Divergent" review here), so I would recommend reading these in order vs. diving straight into this second book if you haven't already read the first.

Good luck! I'm off to ignore the world and dive back into reading this . . .

I would absolutely love to win a copy of Insurgent. I read Divergent in just a few days and have been waiting patiently for the sequel to come out!! I'm an avid reader but had to limit by book source to the local library because I was spending upwards of $100 a month on ebooks for my Nook!! This would be a great addition to my collection! My email address is runningmom03@netzero.com. Thank you!!

Sassy said...

Oh em gee I need this book! I have Divergent primed and ready to go for my trip this weekend, and I know I'll finish it in 2 seconds flat. Always better to have the next book waiting in the wings. :)

Yes, pleasssssse!! I've got Divergent loaded on my Kindle for my 9+ hour road trip with the in-laws next weekend (yikes). I want to have this one in the queue for when I'm finished!

Okay, so, I've been hearing a lot about this book. And since I just finished the Fifty Shades trilogy (Lord have mercy), I am in the market for some new reading material and would love to try this one!

Thanks for opting to share your good fortune with one of us lucky readers:)
