My Very First Contest!!!

Yeah thats right, today is the official 1 Week Anniversary of my blog and I'm celebrating with an ARC giveaway! I'm so excited!!!!! Be sure to check out my previous informational blog about this upcoming book here.

Wintergirls By Laurie Halse Anderson

“Dead girl walking,” the boys say in the halls.
“Tell us your sec
ret,” the girls whisper, one toilet to another.
I am that girl.
I am the space between my thighs, daylight shining through.
I am the bones
they want, wired on a porcelain frame.

Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the skinniest. But what comes after size zero and size double-zero? When Cassie succumbs to the demons within, Lia feels she is being haunted by her friend’s restless spirit.

In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia’s descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.

So I am currently waiting for my copy to get here for myself to read, but in the mean time I am giving away THREE copies to all of you amazing book lovers! Yeah that's right, I said three!

All you need to do is leave me a comment with your name and e-mail address.
Here's how the points go:
+1 for posting below (LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL!!!)
+2 for adding me to your blogroll (let me know and I will add you as well!)
+3 for linking to my contest and showing me
+3 for following my blog (make sure to mention it in your comment below!)
+5 for trading ARC's with me, (e-mail me if you are interested!)

The book comes out in March so this contest will run until February 15th! GOOD LUCK!!

-Taylor

  76. No need to enter me in this contest as I absolutely could not read this book. After having nearly lost a daughter to this horrible disease, even the word anorexia gives me heart palpitations. Just wanted to say this is a serious, serious subject. If you know anyone you even suspect of the beginnings of anorexia, please beg them to get help. 2 out of every anorectics die, 2 are saved and the other one just keeps themselves out of the hospital. The two that are "saved" generally stay underweight. It is one of the hardest diseases to deal with, treatment can last for years. Sorry to be such a downer but I just had to get that out.
