My First Giveaway!

Now Closed!

I originally planned for my first giveaway to celebrate literacy month (September), but I guess like everything else, I'll be a little late. What's the upside of this? We can celebrate the 1st blogoversary of our good friend That Hapa Chick! Yay! "Happy blogoversary to you! Happy blogoversary to you!" It's such an exciting event, and it's celebrated with a weeklong giveaway on her part! I am fortunate enough to be sponsoring one of those days (today), which will be a preview for my 100th post giveaway (to be occuring October 15th-22nd). So put your hands together as we celebrate...

Here we go! The two prizes up for grabs (which will be given away as separate prizes) are as follows.

#1 The Maze Runner by James Dashner (Maze Runner #1) (Hard Cover)

Imagine waking up one day in total darkness, unsure of where you are and unable to remember anything about yourself except your first name. You're in a bizarre place devoid of adults called the Glade. The Glade is an enclosed structure with a jail, a graveyard, a slaughterhouse, living quarters, and gardens. And no way out. Outside the Glade is the Maze, and every day some of the kids -- the Runners -- venture into the labyrinth, trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in an attempt to find an exit from this hellish place. So far, no one has figured it out. And not all of the Runners return from their daily exertions, victims of the maniacal Grievers, part animal, part mechanical killing machines.

Thomas is the newest arrival to the Glade in this Truman-meets-Lord of the Flies tale. A motley crew of half a dozen kids is all he has to guide him in this strange world. As soon as he arrives, unusual things begin to happen, and the others grow suspicious of him. Though the Maze seems somehow familiar to Thomas, he's unable to make sense of the place, despite his extraordinary abilities as a Runner. What is this place, and does Thomas hold the key to finding a way out?

In The Maze Runner, Dashner has crafted a creative and engaging novel that's both mysterious and thought provoking.

#2 Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella (Soft Cover)


Becky Bloomwood has what most twenty-five-year-olds only dream of: a flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is, she can't actually afford it --- not any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. Still, how can she resist that perfect pair of shoes? Or the divine silk blouse in the window of that ultra-trendy boutique? But lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Endwich Bank --- letters with large red sums she can't bear to read --- and they're getting ever harder to ignore. She tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something ...

Finally, a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life --- and the lives of those around her --- forever.

And all you have to do is fill out the FORM! The winner will be posted ASAP. Cheers!

The winners will be drawn October 16th, so send in your entry before then. :) And remember to check back October 15th-22nd for a plethora of more prizes from my 100th post giveaway!
