Random Contest: Lock & Key

« Back to Table of Contents.

Um apologies for the post this morning, that wasn't supposed to go up til tomorrow. Those with feed readers or who saw it on here know a bit about tomorrow, then, I suppose :)


So, I feel like throwing a random contest. You might see a couple of those. :) Anyway, today's is for Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen. Here's my reviews (another sucky review, but the book's good). Her best since This Lullaby, methinks.

The one(s - not sure) I have to giveaway are in ARC format, not the hardcover. SIGNED COPIES.

1 entry per person.

+ 1 if you mention Girl Week anywhere.

+ 1 if you mention this particular contest anywhere.

No secret criterion.

Contest ends on Dec 21st.

-
Girl Week is a week-long event here on the blog celebrating strong YA heroines and feminism. Find out more about it here.

Do you realise that you're driving me a tad nuts, my dear Steph? I mean, what on earth is this "secret criterion" of yours? :P Are you trying to make us (or those of us who are just plain stupid ... a.k.a me) completely confused?

Anyway, I've never read a Sarah Dessen book. I feel tres behind. Please enter me for this, if possible.

Eeeee! Can't, can't, can't wait for the next post! I feel as if I need it now, even though I know you've only recently put this one up!

Many, many, many thanks and much, much, much love!

Thao said...

You made me edit my December contest post several times this week, but hey, that's a good thing. I'm sure I'll miss GIrl Week when it ends T.T

I love Sarah Dessen although I have only read The Truth About Forever. Please enter me. And once again, check this post:

Thanks for the giveaways<3 (I don't know how many times I've said this lol)

Steph said...

Thao - let me count... prepare yourself to edit your list at least 10 more times. I'm ready to go poor with postage this year - you have NO idea how much I have to give away, haha.

And you're welcome :) It never gets old to hear - kinda like a motivator. Must. Write. New. Review.

Kathryn said...

This is the only Sarah Dessen I haven't read yet, as poor college girls can't afford hardcovers and have to wait 'till spring for the paperback to hit the Wal-Mart shelf for the 25% discount.

Please enter me :) I am mundo excited to read this one based on it's premise.

I really hate that Lock and Key got so many bad reviews. True, it wasn't as good as her last three (Just Listen, The Truth About Forever, and This Lullaby), in my opinion. But it was darn good. I mean, come on, it's Sarah! And I can't wait for her next one- Along for the Ride!

Laina said...

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
