I would have loved to go to BEA. Yup, I imagine we all wanted to go. Especially with the awesome ARCS up for grabs. So when I happened upon this post on Renae's blog yesterday I did a little happy dance. Not only did it point me towards another fabulous blog but an amazing competition too.

And here are the prizes.

Michelle Hodkin is having the contest to celebrate her signing with an agent and her book deal and these are the prizes.

Winner one: BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and MATCHED by Ally Condie.

Winner two: THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger and MATCHED by Ally Condie.

So how do I get a chance to win these ARCS? Here is how you enter.

Comment on her post with your favourite first sentence- it doesn't have to be from your favourite book. It doesn't even have to be your favourite first sentence.
Remember to leave your name and your email address.

For extra entries:
+1 New followers of her blog.
+2 If you're already a follower of her blog.
+1 New followers on Twitter.
+2 If you're already a follower on Twitter.
+1 Linking to her contest on your blog, twitter, etc. Include links. (up to 5).
+3 For posting about her contest on your blog. (Must be an actual post).
+2 Add Michelle to your blog roll.
+3 for referring someone to the contest.
+3 for being the person referred.

So I imagine that I would tell Michelle that Renae sent me and get her +3 entries and me +3 entries.

And the best news is the contest is open internationally. Get your entries in by 11:59 on June 9th. Michelle announces the winners on June 11th. Good luck.

Happy Friday. :)

Good luck with the contest. I've been hearing some buzz about Duff lately. Will my TBR list ever be satisfied?

Thanks for the heads up Lindsay.

I am quite curious about the DUFF phenomenon in real life so the book ought to be good read.
