Catching Fire Giveaway Contest!

Hey guys! I know I'm a little bit behind contest wise. I had meant to post another contest when I hit 100 followers, which whipped right by last week.

So, I've finally read and reviewed Catching Fire and I'm giving my ARC copy away. I want to spread the Hunger Games Trilogy love!

I also am trying to figure out how to get rid of some of these books real quick before I move in November. I'm hoping to read and review a ton of the ARCs and other books I got from ALA. There is a poll up on the sidebar of my blog. Please VOTE! It's only up for a few days, so please please please VOTE! (There will be extra points for this.. )

Now, onto to what you will win:

  • An ARC copy of Catching Fire, read only once! :),
  • A festive mockinjay button,
  • and a set of pretty red earrings from Chatty Cathie:



The Rules:

1. Open to EVERYONE.
2. Please include your email address with your comment(s).
3. Contest ends Friday, August 7th at midnight CST

    To answer the question: I actually loved Rita from Sacred Night. Who she was turned out to be different then I thought in the beginning. Or Richard Cypher from the Sword of Truth Series, just your average hero in love with a confessor. Sigh.

  17. I've honestly been pondering the question for ages, looking at my list of books read this year, trying to figure out who my favourite character is. There's just too many great characters out there! I'll make a short list:

    - Miles/Alaska in Looking for Alaska
    - Katniss/Peeta in The Hunger Games
    - Audrey in Audrey, Wait!
    - T.C. in My Most Excellent Year
    - Kartik in A Great and Terrible Beauty (well, the whole series)
    - Parker in Cracked Up To Be
    - Clary/Jace in The Mortal Instruments series
    - Clay in 13 Reasons Why
    - D.J. in Dairy Queen
    - Melinda in Speak
    - Terra in North of Beautiful

    It's not so short... And obviously not complete. But I put quite a bit of effort... extra points maybe? ;)

  18. Fun contest! I actually loved Hunger Games, it is definately one of my top 10 favorite books of the year, so I'd love to get my hands on a copy of Catching Fire.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure who my favorite character is. Taken By Storm was probably my favorite book this month. I loved Michael and Leesie, they had loads of chemistry and the stroy totally sucks you in. So, I guess Michael and Leesie are my favorites...

  19. Kath,

    I was lucky that ALA was in Chicago this year - I picked up over 100 books. :-D

  23. I think my favorite character this year would be a pair - if that's okay. I really loved the two main characters from Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols. John After was great, but he wouldn't have been nearly as amazing without the narrator. They were outstanding!

  25. +3 My favorite character this year would have to be Callie from Prada and Prejudice because underneath her clutzy, insecure self, was a person with confidence just waiting to get out. You could tell that by everything she does when she's in 1815. I just simply loved her because at the end, she found out that all she needed was to be confident and accept herself for who she was.

  26. Okay, I totally misread your question, and thought you were asking about The Hunger Games. Sorry, I left that comment early this morning. To re-answer the question in a better manner, my favorite character of this year is Tally Youngblood from the Uglies series. She kicks ass, and I feel bad for her at the same time because everything always gets blamed on her, and she willingly accepts the blame when it's not her fault.

    Sorry to answer incorrectly earlier!

  27. +3 for answering the question:

  51. +3 My favorite character from a book this year would have to be Emer/Saffron from the Dust of 100 Dogs. That was such a good book and her character development was spot-on.

  52. Well, my favorite character from this year's reading is Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird (read my review here . She is sweet and innocent, yet tomboyish and talkative. I totally loved her!

  54. My favorite character this year is Lisbeth Salandar from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She's independent, smart, and just plain unique, but she also has a darker, sadder side.

  55. Where to begin? Too hard to narrow down but I liked Dante in A Rush of Wings because he was so much more than his fans wanted to see. Also, I am enjoying Lisbeth from The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo because she is vulnerable in so many ways but continues to fight.

    Kvothe from Name of the Wind! I love how even though he is brilliant and resourceful, he is NOT perfect and is still bullheaded, and he never did what I expected him to do. LOVED him.

  67. # +3 for answering the question above: My favorite character is Brian from the Hatchet series. Because he his in the forest in most of the series, stranded, there isin't much dialogue, but all his internal chatter and meditation make the book so very interesting. You can see the way his mind set changes, specially in the duration of Hatchet. Though the idea of the series is fairly common, Gary Paulsen brings uniqueness to the story, through Brian.

  70. My favorite character of a book I read this year is Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore because strong female main characters like that are hard to find – at least, they are in most other books I’ve recently read. She had courage, she was intelligent, she seemed intriguing...I really enjoyed reading about her and couldn’t wait to find out what she would do next.

That is one stunning piece of jewelry! It’s sooo pretty, sooo shiny…must…stop…staring! This is what one would wear if they wanted to draw attention to their neck. :D

  82. +3 = tricky question. I can never pick one, so my favoriteS are: Marcus from Little Brother because he is an absoulte individual, challenging and risky and unashamed; Eff from The Thirteenth Child because she's just endearing; Tood Hewitt from The Knife of Never Letting Go, because I loved being in his head; and Sunshine from Sunshine, because I kind of want to be her. There are so many more, but I loved these guys.

  85. My favorite character from a book I read this year...would have to be Mercy Thompson from Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs. Mercy, short for Mercedes, is a Walker, a human with the ability to shape-shift into a coyote. She gets herself into all sort of trouble with vampires, werewolves, and the fae, but she can kick ass and is surrounded by hot guys all the time. What's not to love?

    Even if I don't win this giveaway, I hope that if you haven't checked out the Mercy Thompson series, to check it out! Bone Crossed is actually the fourth installment in this ongoing series. Book 1: Moon Called, is available in major bookstores! Just sharing the love. XD

    I checked out Chatty Cathie's website, and I really liked the fairy pendant and the 3-D metal hummingbird embellishment. I love birds, so the hummingbird figure really caught my eye, especially since just two months ago at my previous place of work we rescued a baby hummingbird! It was very cute. :D

  90. My favorite character so far this year is Silas from Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. Always an outsider, he is a monster-turned-caretaker, painfully aware of what he is, yet he has found within himself a deep kindness and ability to care for others. I love the way this character is so subtly and mysteriously drawn.

    So…

    My favorite character of this year is Margo Roth Spiegelman from Paper Towns by John Green. (Nerdfighters FTW!) I love that Margo is this "badass" confident girl on the outside but secretly she is troubled and has some extremely deep thoughts. She hates how fake people can be at times and so do I. I felt she was a character that many people could identify with.

  113. Hard question. I've loved almost every character of every book I've read this year. My favorite would have to be Mary "Jacky" Faber, the main protagonist of the Bloody Jack Adventure Series. It's hard not to like a girl that kicks butt, has guys falling for her left and right, smarts (street and otherwise), and skills.

    +3- My favorite character is Ani in the Goose Girl. She becomes so courageous, strong, and sure of herself at the end of the story. At the beginning, she was kind of weak, and she didn't like herself that much.

  139. My favorite character this year has been Anna from Twenty Boy Summer. Despite the fact that her name should have totally been Sophie, I loved her character. Anna and I sort of have a bond in that we both lost really close friends at a young age. I really understood how she was reacting and what was going on with her more than I have any other character.
