Blogger Love Giveaway: GIRL OF NIGHTMARES ARCs

So, GIRL OF NIGHTMARES ARCs. I've got some. Here they are:

Photo taken on my kitchen counter. You can see the diet soda syrup for my SodaStream in the background. Mmm. Sodastream.

But I digress. The point is, they're pretty. No, dammit. That's not the point either.

The point is, I love Bloggers. Not only have you guys done so much to champion ANNA over the past year, but more importantly, you love books. And that rules. If you could see me now, you'd see me fist-bumping my chest twice and then pointing a sideways peace sign in your direction. And you would tell me to stop it.

So I would like to do a giveaway of these three ARCs, to bloggers. After this giveaway closes, I'll run another giveaway, open to everyone. But just now, just this time, it's for Blogger Love. To enter, leave a comment, with the name of your blog. You can leave a link if you want, but it's not required. I'll draw the winners Monday, April 2nd. The giveaway officially closes at Midnight Pacific Time on April 1st. Which is Tybalt's birthday.

Disclaimer: I've never run a giveaway before. The livejournal goat might not like it. We'll see if he chews through my wires. Any problems though, email me or Twitter me (Twitter me? Twit me? Tweet? Twat? No, that's definitely not it.) and I'll figure it out and make sure you get entered.

And gear up for the open giveaway, because I'm going to try to have fun with it. And that means fun with you.

These ARCs are a little bit special, because I'm pretty sure it's the only time you'll be able to get the red cover. I'd love it if you'd spread the word of this giveaway, but there won't be any extra entries for Tweeting, etc. And I understand if you don't, because, duh, more entries, less chances. But come on, man. It's for the love.

    I recently got my hands on Anna and have held off reading it so I could read both of these at the same time. So needless to say, I’m excited!!! My blog is Book Cover Justice ( and I would be more than thrilled to take one of these beauties off of your hands πŸ™‚ Thank you!!!

    THEY ARE SO PRETTY. O_O I . . . I think I may have spent about five minutes just staring at this post. It makes me SO HAPPY. I absolutely adored ANNA, so this post led to intense squeeing. ARCs of awesome books have a way of doing that.

    I run a book blog called Still Waiting for Books to Come True, where I put these rambling raving ranting things called reviews. (Alliteration? No?)

    I do have a blog, but no one reads it. πŸ™ But I just found your site… and wanted to say that ANNA was AMAZING! Gross and way too gory for me, but the writing sucked me in anyway. I kept reading half sentences to my friends and we’d cackle away.

    I want this book so bad it hurts. :(( :)) i would love to read it before August because by that time, I’d have school and if it’s as good as Anna Dressed in Blood, I know I will be way too distracted with the book. My blog isn’t a book blog and it’s on tumblr, i don’t know if I’m worthy (lol) but I just wanted to give it a shot because i want one so darn bad.

    WAAAAH! WHY, KENDARE, WHY!?!? *SOBS* I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT….some days i wake up and i’m fine…and other days…it just hits me all over again! Today…i am NOT ok! *takes a moment of silence for Tybalt*

    *deep breath* i’m good now. Oh. Em. SQUEEEE! Sodastream! Tested out the grapefruit flavor at my local Herbergers and it was DELISH….totally asking the Easter Bunny to bring me one! OOOh, yeaah!

    Down to business:
    A) I’ve read the synopsis for Girl of Nightmares around 75 hundred times….and all i keep seeing is this, “no living girl he meets…” Um- 1. WHO ARE THESE GIRLS? 2. WHY WASN’T I ONE OF THEM? 3. This makes me mad at his friends (i’m lookin’ at you Carmel and Thomas-Not. Cool.) he belongs with Anna! (Or me…but mostly Anna…)

    B) THAT. COVER. *pets* *stares* *sniffs* *licks* ← okay, that was kind of creepy, I apologize….buuuut, I’m not actually sorry about it… I basically want to marry this cover. OMG-brilliant idea- I’ll have Anna’s cover tatted on my back and I’ll marry this one….*ponders* seems like a pretty reasonable thing to do. Seriously though, your books have THE most BOMB covers EVER! Absolutely gorgeous and crazy and totally bad-ass awesome. Yeah, I love them. And I don’t want this one to chaaaange! I wike da red very mucho!

    C) I can’t wait for Cas to kick some ASS and get his girl back! I’m totally gonna be freakin’ out until I know Anna is OK! Also-kissies. There better be some πŸ˜›

    Thank you so much for the giveaway, it rocks Crocs WITH socks! Thank you! Thank you! Spank you! Waitβ€”what?! πŸ˜›

      Seriously. I was so surprised by the pink grapefruit. It is usually not my thing at all. Also, you are too hilarious. Although if my husband sees this comment and tries to rock Crocs with socks, I am holding you personally responsible.

      1. Anonymous

        BAHA! I seriously hope, for your sake and everyone else’s on planet earth, that he does not attempt to rock Crocs with socks. I’ve seen it and it was just…*shudders* terrible. Absolutely horrific. I can’t decide if it’s worse than mandles with socks or not. I don’t care to look further into the phenomenon either. LOL

        Back to the important stuff though, the Sodastream teas are pretty good as well! And I really wanna try the apple mango flavor! It seems like it’d either taste like heaven or ass…….i’ll let you know. πŸ˜›

    Just finished Girl of Nightmares it brought tears to my eyes several times, if there isn’t a third book I might die. i felt like i needed to finish it so i read the end right after school thinking it would help settle things because that was all i thought about all day, but it just killed me. I dont know what to do now i guess i will reread Girl of Nightmares and Anna Dressed in Blood for like the fourth time. loved the book!
