Have Yourself A Morbid Little Christmas--CONTEST!


Hi all....

Well, as my end-of-the-year gift to all of you I am giving away not one, not two, but three fabulous prizes to the winner of my "Have-Yourself-A-Morbid-Little-Christmas" Contest! I'll be giving away three books, all of which deal in some way with death--cheerful, right?

The books are:

Before I Fall (my book--in ARC form)
If I Stay, by Gayle Forman (in hardcover)
and
Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher (in hardcover)

That's right, the lucky winner will receive all three books! (Check out the pic below--you can see my Xmas tree in the corner of the frame! he he he.)




All you have to do to enter is answer my question: What's on your Christmas (or Hanukkah, or non-denominational holiday) wishlist this year? And please leave your email address so I can contact you!

This contest will run from now until 12/25, so hurry up and enter already!!

A bookcase is on my wishlist. I am in dire need of one because I do not have one. Crazy, I know. We do have one in the house but it's the hubby's and he is using it to house his die-cast model collection (airplanes and cars). So my books are piling up on the top shelf of the computer desk and it's seriously become a safety hazard. I hope to get one soon!

I would love to have two hours to talk and have a couple lattes with my faraway friend, Patricia. I would also like more time to read in my life.

Both of these are practically unattainable, but that's what wishing's about, right?

P.S. I loved the "Before I Fall" preview posted on The Book Pixie (this is not strategy--just honest feedback!).

Amy305 said...

Awesome contest! Hmm...on the top of my wish list would have to be, yup, a book shelf too! I'm not trying to be unoriginal here, but I own over 600 books and my 3 book shelves are stuffed to the gills, double and triple stacked!

a bookcase and books and some movies would be nice and so would a job. Also for the story I'm trying to write to come together.

Ooh awesome contest!

There really isn't much on my Christmas list this year. I find the older I get, the less things I really need. Being 20 and kinda broke, I pretty much just want money haha. ;)

Jessica Secret said...

This year, I am DYING for a top hat. Yes, that kind of top hat. I've been wanting one forever! Oh, and Rock 'em Sock 'em robots. And bunches of Cds and books.

Mona Mour said...

I would love a couple extra vacation days devoted to snuggling in bed with my big fluffy dog Lucy.

I also want some new skates and a new helmet for my third season with the Boston Derby Dames!

What is on my wishlist this year? Well, there are several items that I want, but the one thing I want the most is to have the best christmas ever, and by doing that, I have tried to get everyone a present. Not just something simple, like a gift card, but something that they like personally (like for my dad I'm getting him the Wizard of Oz on DVD). To get it you gotta give it so I am getting everyone I love presents (I have at least 14 people this year! Yikes!) But it will be worth it cause I want to make everyone happy. And that is sort of tough because I have a big family and usually when everyone is home, well, a few arguments will stir. So this year for Christmas, I just want my whole family to really enjoy it. It doesn't matter what I recieve, its what they do.

Merry Morbid Christmas!

Kathy Martin said...

I only have one thing on my list this year. I want a new food processor. My vintage one (about 20 years old) has warped beyond repair. Oh, time to read would also be good. There are so many wonderful books available and so little time.

Dahlia (TheBookShopaholic) said...

Books, books, books, are on my wishlist. I have typed out my parents a list of book titles I want. I don't expect to get much, but its worth the try.

Book Crazy Jenn said...

Secretly I am wishing for a Kindle or a Nook - not sure I will love it, but I would love to have one and give it a try! ;)

I am also hoping for gift cards, no one knows what I have in terms of books - because no one asked! So I dont want them buying what I already got LOL...

Christmas this year has been REALLY hard to get in the spirit for - Aubrey, my daughter will be with her dad all Christmas break - for the first time since she's been alive she and I will not be together on that day...it's really HARD! :)

Blessings...thanks for the awesome giveaway!

This is an amazing giveaway. I had seen a lot of people mentioning If I Stay and I've been wanting Thirteen Reasons Why, just keep forgetting to pick it up. I saw your book on Good Reads and it sounds good.

The only thing I really want for Christmas is a Kindle. I've been hearing wonderful things about it, and I enjoy reading so much. It could be a nice investment. And, there are tons of books on my list. Mainly finishing up a lot of my series.

The only thing on my wishlist is a "free weekend" preferably out of town. I have 5 kids who I am constantly busy with so I just need a little break. And of course all I would want to do on my free weekend is read, read, read.

My email is cynthiadiaz2008@yahoo.com.
Thanks!

Creative A said...

I've been a bit ashamed this year because I have no wishlist, in the kind of way you have no friends. The only thing I really want is a $200 + copy of Dreamweaver that I don't expect (or demand) anyone get me. But there's my list, and here's my entry, and this sounds like an incredibly giveaway so fingers crossed!
