Some News... and... A Contest!

Okay, I still need 9 more people left before I giveaway, Shiver! C'mon people, all you have to do is follow me, it's that simple! Once I hit 200 EVERYONE is entered. I just finished reading my copy of Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins and I loved it. So for one week, I'm holding a contest who can tell me in 50 words or less why they should win this book! This contest will end at 11pm EDT on Friday, July 10! So get your imaginations going and tell me why you should win Catching Fire!


  1. I need Catching Fire because waiting to see what happens next is absolutely killing me!

  2. I really need Catching Fire, because after reading Hunger Games, I was hooked to the story. I couldn't stop thinking about it, and I really can't wai to see what's going to happen with the characters.

  3. I need Catching Fire because every review I have read says it is amazing and I really like amazing books. Also, September 1 is just too far away for me to wait and I might have to stalk somebody with a copy til I get it. Just kidding! =]

  4. I need to win Catching Fire, because the heart palpatations I experienced while reading Hunger Games turned out to be quite addictive. Sort of like cowbell-- I have a fever and the only prescription is more Suzanne Collins!

  5. The Hunger Game took me to a wrold that I can only read about I cant waite Intil Caching fire and be sucked into the wrold againe



  6. forgot my email. whoops. (that fevers really messing me up).


  7. I need Catching Fire because I wasn't fortunate enough to go to BEA or receive one in the mail from Scholastic! And, I can't wait!

  8. Why SHOULD I win this book? Because I love you sooooo much, and you love me sooooo much, and YOU think I'm deserving of this book! hahaha :D


  9. I want Catching Fire because need to be cheered up with a great book. Since my knee surgery, I've been able to regain enough strength to walk, but I've still got months until I can start playing soccer again. It'd make me soo happy. And my friends would be jealous!


  10. I should totally win Catching Fire because I just won Hunger Games and as soon as I finish that I'll obviously need more!!


    (and I wasn't following you through the blogger thing...only Google Reader? Why didn't someone tell me?)

  11. I have never read this series, but I have heard wonders about it. It sounds like a marvelous book. Please count me in.

  12. I really need Catching Fire because the wait is killing me. I'd rather read it and wait for the third book, than wonder what's going to happen in the second!

  13. I really need Catching Fire otherwise I will get really, really cranky and my family will suffer and they will pass that crankiness on to the people they come into contact with and before you know it Armageddon's upon us and it's just like what happened to the dinosaurs!


  14. I heard this book is really good and i sooo want to read it now!

  15. So you see, I should win Catching Fire because I'm simply amazing and therefore that entitles me to it. lolz

    :) Erica

  16. Why do I need it? Because everyday my breakfast table hosts the Hunger Games. We lie, cheat, steal and kill over the food. And every time I win, I fear the backlash of the Capitol (aka the rest of the family). I need to know what to do next!!!

  17. Oh, shoot. Forgot my email.

    mya DOT rooney AT gmail DOT com

  18. I need it so that I wont have to either buy it myself or jump in front of all the students and borrow it from our school library before they get a chance to read it! Save me and the students!

  19. Omg, after I read Hunger Games, I wanted to continue the story sooo bad! I didn't put it down, it was with me everywhere, the bathroom, train, even at work shh don't tell my boss lol. I would love it if I could read Catching Fire before September, it's soooo far awayyyy! Ahhh Okay, thanks again!


  20. I should win because I am a sucker for a free book. Aside frugal reasons, I’ve heard cclaim for Collins’ work, yet I haven’t read “Hunger Games” … yet. If I win, I’ll have read “Hunger Games” by the time it arrives in my mailbox.


  21. Great idea!

    I should win Catching Fire because I just read The Hunger Games a few weeks ago. I had heard it was good but I didn't think anything of it. I read it and loved it. I was surprised by how much I did like it. I immediately gave a copy to my mother-in-law and I've been telling everyone to read it. I would love to be able to let everyone know that the second book is amazing too!


  22. DOH!

    Email is: bookreviewsbyjess AT gmail DOT com

  23. Don't enter me! But you got blog awards from moi:

  24. Hmm why should I win it? Well aside from the fact that I would probably participate in the Hunger Games to get a copy of this book, it would be a nice reward for working myself to death this year to get good grades (and then not getting financial aid from my school).

  25. I should win Catching Fire because I live in Scotland and it's very hard to get NEW books here. Hunger Games was impossible to find, so I had to get my sister in America to send me a copy last October. I can't imagine Catching Fire will be ANY easier to find. I've had a VERY hard time getting the books I want to read. Hunger Games is my very favorite book of all times, and I have been anxiously awaiting Catching Fire!

  26. shame on me, I forgot my email address:

  27. Catching Fire is the next book on my wish list now that the book club is about to discuss Hunger Games! I really had a hard time putting down the book when I was getting off the metro, and I was tapped a couple of times by other passengers when I reached the end of the line. Thankfully, that was my destination.

  28. I would love to win Catching Fire because every review that I've read makes it sounds amazing and I'd love to read it!!

  29. I need Catching Fire because it comes out on my birthday so this would be like an early bday present!

  30. I need Catching Fire because I haven't read The Hunger Games yet and owning Catching Fire would encourage me to read both. :) That is nowhere near 50 words, but it's 4am and my blood sugar is like below sea level, so that's the best I can do. I did post about this on my contest blog in a ginormous post, there were like 60 or more contests there, so... I totally lost my train of thought.

    I'm babbling now, so I'm just gonna leave my email address and run away.


  31. I should win Catching Fire because I've been waiting for it forever and I love books AND because I'd catch fire myself to get this book.

  32. I want to be one of the people with the knowing smiles, not the agonised looks ;) Aside from that ... I want to read it. Really, really, really badly. So pretty please can I?

    (Is this for overseas people? I hope so. I'm in the UK)

  33. i should win because i've never read it and i want to start my own book blog with a giveaway
    this way i can read it then pass it on
    im ur 199th follower! lolz

  34. A friend of mine and I were having friendly competition over who will read Catching Fire first, but, after her husband was in an accident last week, leaving him with a concussion and severely crushed ulna, I pinky-swear to let her read it first. When I win a copy.

    That’s 50 words so I’m seriously hoping my email doesn’t count:

  38. I absolutely need a Catching Fire ARC because i fell in love with the characters. Suzanne Collins does a wonderful job on making them fully beleaveable!

    Here's my e-mail:

    Oh, and i've tried three other contests to win the book but no such luck has come!

  39. I need to win catching fire because a very close friend died a few weeks ago and really need to escape into a good new world for awhile.


  40. I should win this book because I'm going to SCBWI LA where I'm sure people have already read it and I don't want to be spoiled! Also, waiting is hard and September is farther away than RIGHT NOW.

  41. Hunger Games was amazing, the suspense of not knowing what is next is killing me.

    (I'm international encase this contest isn't)

  42. I need to have Catching Fire because It was one of the most amazing books I have ever read and I dont know if I can wait until it comes out. Even after finishing Hunger Games a couple of months ago I still can't help thinking about whats going to happen next and I need to find out!

  43. I need to win Catching Fire because I love to read and I heard this book is by a great author! Please include me in the giveaway! I promise that if I win, the book will go to a very good home!

    Thank you!
