UPDATE!

Welp, I made it past 250 follower thanks to you all! As promised, I am upping the prize and the contest has turned into a 300 Follower Giveaway. Here is what I have decided to add:


'Dat's right....a hardback copy of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. If you haven't heard of the this book or Cassie's Mortal Instrument series...get out from under your rock and enter to win this book! ;) If I reach 300 followers....the winner will receive Matched and Clockwork Angel. Ohhhh, ahhhhh.

PS, for those of you that want an extra point - you need to comment who your "match" would be on this blog post. Not just on the form. If you already entered and didn't do this...do it now, and I will make it count. I love hearing your answers!

Now.....get to it!

******************

Awe, sounds precious doesn't it - just 250 followers? To me, that's fantastic! I started this blog for school and since August, I have been able to use I READ BANNED BOOKS for me and my little book addiction. So here we are, almost at 250.

Here is what I have up for grabs when I hit 250:


My coveted ARC of MATCHED by Ally Condie - out November 30th. I read this book and was instantly hooked! Here is a little of my review:


"Personally, I rank this book up there with other wildly popular 
dystopian YA novels - The Giver, The Hunger Games, The Uglies, etc...
 It really is that good and one of my favorite books of the year. "


If I get to 300 while the contest is still going on...I'll add something extra. Something good (book, signed swag, etc..), maybe even put it up for a vote. If I get more than 300 follower...you can pick me up off the floor!

  10. Thanks for the giveaway!

    This is a tough question so I'll answer it a few ways...

    Ultimately I'd like to be matched with my husband because we are perfect together and I couldn't imagine loving anyone the way I love him.

    Literary Guy- Going go with either Edward Cullen or Ren from Nightshade.

    Actor- Craig Horner!

  11. Ohhh... matched with who? Ummm. That's a hard one. But probably Peeta. Well, if you've read Mockingjay, not the Peeta in the middle of the book. ;o)

  15. I would like to be matched up to Peeta from The Hunger Games.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm already excellently matched to my husband. So that's what it would be. Unrealistically though....Edward for the win.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ideally, I'd like to be Matched with someone who is nice, funny, and just a little bit sarcastic.

    But since we have to pick a person or character... I'd pick Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the looks, or Jace from TMI for the attitude.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hmmm, tough question! Truthfully, I'm matched to my significant other and wouldn't change a thing... But if we're talking fictional world, I'll go with;

    Character wise, from the Vampire Diaries TV show (as I've not read the books) I like Damon Salvatore. Yes, he's a bit of a bastard, but he's not all bad.

    Book wise, I think I'll have a handful of Kresley Cole's leading male characters - Ok ok, I just can't choose!

    Visually - Henry Cavill. Mmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Match me up with Brad Pitt? Looks and a heart. ;) Eric Northman? Yea... that sounds good too. :)
