So you say there's contests, eh?

Bringing in the Canadian roots! :-) Umm if you didn't get that, I meant the "eh" in the title. :P

Hadn't updated the contest links in the sidebar in a while, but look! Now they're all updated. :D And I decided to do a post also with some of the contests around the blogosphere.


First up, B.A.M. Book Review's contest for I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. I've been dying to read this one because I read The Book Thief and it was amazing.

Stop, Drop, and Read! has finished with the Blogversary posts, but the giveaways are still open until the end of August! I'd like to point out the contest for The Elite series.


Melissa's Bookshelf is celebrating 300 followers! The prize, you ask? Gift cards! Who doesn't love gift cards? Oh, and this contest is international. :)


At Miss Danaidae, there's a chance to win Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley. For some reason, I keep thinking of the title as Violent Wings, and then must correct myself.


There's a giveaway for 5 books at Running for Fiction. The books include: Ophelia by Lisa Klein, 2. Hit And Run by Lurlene McDaniel, Selected Poems of Anne Sexton by Anne Sexton, You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith, and Cathy's Book by Sean Stewart and Jordan Weisman.


Kate at The Neverending Shelf is hosting a really cool contest! 3 winners, tons of books to choose from. :) There's a lot of books, so I'll just tell you all to go there now and enter yourself.


Want to read and own The Hunger Games? At Jenna Likes To Read, there's a chance to win your own copy!


Bree Despain is giving away copies of her book, The Dark Divine, which I'm sure you're all dying to read, along with a pedicure kit. There's 3 prizes to win:

1. A pedicure kit complete with my new THE DARK DIVINE nail polish! + An autographed ARC of THE DARK DIVINE + $15 gift card to Barnes & Noble.
2. Signed copy of MY BIG NOSE AND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS by Sydney Salter + Signed copy of LIFE IN THE PIT by Kristen Landon

Completely unrelated to books but... have you seen this contest? You can win an adorable dress!


At Lee Verday's blog, there's the chance to win a signed copy of Wings by Aprilynne Pike! This time though, it's not a commenting contest but the usual type.


Living Your Five, a wonderful site to promote changing our world for the better, is celebrating it's launch week by having a huge contest! The fivers of the site are Kay Cassidy, Tera Lynn Childs, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Alyson Noel. Oh, wanting to know what you could win?

A $100 gift card to Barnes & Noble
A $100 dollar donation to the non-profit organization of your choice, in your name
A signed copy of each of the authors' latest books/ARCs


And.. yep! Contests and giveaways are fun. Free books are wonderful. So really, what do you have to lose? (The answer is a lot of time. But it's worth it.) So go onward fellow bloggers! Take the leap of faith and go enter some contests. You won't regret it.
