Hark! Hark! I Have Free ARCs!

Ok, Book Sluts! I have now officially (and oh-so-randomly) chosen winners! I was going to choose two but I am too much of a softie so I chose THREE. The post office needs the money, right? Here they are:

Beverly Diehl:
Born Wicked
My Family for the War

Kathy Coleman:
Grave Mercy
The Fine Art of Truth of Dare


I will contact you all personally to let you know. Congratulations! For those of you who didn't win, don't despair: There will be more giveaways just like this. Come back again, fair book sluts. Giving away books warms the cockles of my heart, and also my duodenum.

Please review and let us know how you enjoyed these titles!


Let's not meddle around here. You know what you want, and why you are here. Free books!


But that's OK, because I like to feed your addiction.

Better yet, these YA books are unpublished and as yet untouched by human hands! Except mine. I groped them a little bit. (But you would too, if you came across a book called BORN WICKED. And that woman on BLOODROSE looks like she don't wear nothing under her clothes. Just saying. Damn it, did I learn nothing from NYC's Slutwalk '11?)

If you get them you can gloat and think something along the lines of the sign I once saw in a Brooklyn storefront: OUR STUFF IS CHEAPER THAN IF IT FELL OFF THE BACK OF A TRUCK.

So are these books.

The rules are simple for this giveaway:
1. Leave me a comment with a way to contact you should you win (if certain titles appeal to you, say so!)
2. Follow my blog
3. Tweet at least once about this giveaway, and please tag me @feralpony so I see it
4. If you don't tweet do something else nice, like help a young lady across the street without fondling her just because she's dressed like a slut.

I will pick 2 winners soonish...in a couple of days. Good luck!

Cate Cahill and her sisters are witches! If their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood,
it will mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

See the blood drizzling from the "O"? Yeekers! There is a wolf, too.

A 17-year-old fleeing from an arranged marriage will be trained as an assassin...and a handmaiden to Death.

Plagued by waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, sixteen-year-old Faye thinks she's going crazy. [These books sound awesome; why am I giving them away? I am a dope.]

Funny kissy cute!

At the start of WWII, Franziska is torn from her family to escape the Nazis via the kindertransport train. Being German in London and piecing together a new life isn't easy.

I love free books!!!! You can reach me at serendipityslibrary@gmail.com. I am not cool enough for twitter but I did share your post on my super cool facebook page.

Munnaza said...

Thank you so much for this giveaway! I've been dying to read ALL of these amazing titles, and I can't wait until they're published!

1. infalliblyyours@gmail.com
2. I follow your blog on GFC as infalliblyyours or Munnaza
3. I tweeted about this giveaway: http://twitter.com/#!/yoursinfallibly/status/121343996458049538
And YES, I will try to do number 4 because it's ridiculous that people are judging women for the way they dress. They're allowed to dress any way they want and the fact that courts are using or considering using the way they dress against them in rape cases is SERIOUSLY MESSED UP. ...Sorry, I feel strongly about this.

Great giveaway!

Haley Sindt said...

You are correct! I am a book addict! And it's even better when they're free! :D
If I win, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to have Wolfsbane! I LOVE Andrea Cremer and I am SOOO excited for Wolfsbane and you would make me so happy if I won it and got to read it early! <3 You can get a hold of me at gigglzha@gmail.com. Posting it on Twitter now! (Twitter name: Crazedboutbooks)

Riley Redgate said...

WELL GOLLY. rileyredgate[at]gmail[dot]com is me, and I'd love The Fine Art of Truth or Dare. (Be still, the part of my heart that yearns for warm chick-litty reads!)


Chen Yan Chang said...

I would grope Born Wicked, too...I mean, the girl on the cover's offering herself to me. How can I resist? Bloodrose looks awesome to grope as well, but first I must read my copy of Nightshade before I could run my hands over its sibling ;)

Harbringer and Born Wicked look awesome. Can I please win? I saw a dog get hit by a car today and it was very sad. I need free books... :<

Anonymous said...

I tweeted--and it was like a little song I wrote just for you. These ARCs are beautiful, especially that wicked slutty one. WANT!

Beverly Diehl said...

Jenny, you're sick, but I'm too big a slut to turn down free books (or much of anything, actually.

I have tweeted, and I already follow you. Plus, I am a proud Slutwalker myself. Will put a link on my FB author page, too.

I'm liking Born Wicked - being a witch is almost as cool as being a slut, IMO; or the "My Family for the War." You can follow the link to my blog, or e-mail me bevdiehl @ gmail(dot)com.

They all sound so cool! The only one I'm not drooling over is the kindertransport one (mostly because it doesn't seem likely to have a good romance). I tweeted, I've been a follower for simply ages, and my email addy is robinweekswriter at geemail dot com.

Marewolf said...

Give me books or give me death! (or something slightly less dramatic)

Seriously, where do you get such wonderful toys? The last time I got books in the mail (from you, I believe), I got so excited my husband was jealous!

No, really.

Tweeting now! And when is the next Slutwalk?

Anita Grace Howard said...

WOWZERS. Those are some scrumptious book covers. *salivating*

No need to enter me in the contest, dear friend, since you generously sent some books my way a while ago for no reason other than you're a NICEY.

Though I am totally tweeting this because I love you. :) Hee

Thank you for this giveaway! So many great books to win!

I'm following your blog as amethystheart89@gmail.com on GFC

I'd tweet about the contest but I was having trouble with spam, so I'm leaving my twitter private for a while. I'll definitely do something nice for someone though, especially a woman being judged unfairly for the way she is dressed.

You guys are all fab! My amazing random FEZ, from which I shall select the winners, will have its work cut out for it tomorrow.

Still accepting entries!

The Rake said...

Hello! This IS HANN! ( Iscream and shout!)

I NEED ARCs. ARCS like water from a spout from an AWESOME sink!!1


and I MUST love and read SLUTS! Sluts like to walk and even like AWESOME SINKS!j

Please to click my link NAD send ARCs and slu wakls to the to me @ gmail PLEASE! You find it!


sinks are awesome. Yes.

The Rake said...

OK folks. What many of you may not realize is that I am not actually Hann!


But, rather, I am THE Rake. And I have some influence (some might say "significant") over the Party Pony. Verily, she and I are betrothed.

Therefore, I *may* attempt to influence her awards purely based on your comment posts. And I should note that, I eye ALL posts. As such, my votes may be based on your amount of cumulative posting over the ages, or simply the amazing pithy comments you left on the one ARC contest.

Yes, you may be concerned. But, relax. The Rake (and his alter-ego Hann) is benevolent. (Don't you hate it when folks speak/write of themselves in the third person?) But, while benevolent, I am a harsh task-master. So, get to yer bloggin', fb'in', twittin', and whatever the heck else y'all do.

And I shall be the judge! (Actually, I'll just mention to the Pony who I really like while we're having martinis on the porch; but that can be very influential!)

P.S. As of yet, and as always, I am taken by Chen Yan Chang's comment. I mean, seriously. "Born Wicked" looks like "Born To Be Taken By Whomever It Is Who Is Looking At Me At This Moment Whilst In This Pose (And That Means You, Dear Reader)!"

P.S.S. Kudos and props go to any other commentator who acknowledges that she or he (who am I kidding; are there any other "he"s beyond me on this thing?) is a book slut!

I would LOVE to get my hands on a copy of Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer and I've heard good things about The Fine Art of Truth and Dare.

Born Wicked and Grave Mercy also sound like great reads, but the two above would be my first choices:)

Brodie said...

Well. HOLY. FREAKING. CRAP. I'm dying a little, day by day, to get my hands on Bloodrose (I read a spoiler. And it's KILLING me not having this book in my hands!), Born Wicked and Harbinger! And recently (like, five minutes ago) it was brought to my attention that Grave Mercy sounds badass. And I love me some funny kissy cute-ness with TFAOTAD. Plus, the love interest can speak French? We can noeud our langues together anytime! (No I did not have to Google Translate those two words...)

I'm a female, but I can totally pull off being a male (okay just in name, but I'm not afraid to try experimental drugs to make it legit) if that makes The Rake feel a little less lonely. Because I now officially worship The Rake and his divine Book Sluttiness. Because he is amazing and... what are you saying?! I'm appalled that you would accuse me of sucking up to him just to sway the vote. That's a low accusation.

Also, that is one sexy pony in your sidebar, Jenny! <3

Thank you for AMAZING giveaway!! (Is this open internationally? If not, ignore my long comment!)
