Win The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Picture 5The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is by far my favorite book I’ve read this year.  I’m ridiculously excited about the next book in the trilogy, Catching Fire, coming out 9/1.  (I’m positive that will be in an upcoming Waiting on Wednesday post!)  I’ve read some comments on Paperbackswap and elsewhere that some people haven’t read it, so I thought I’d do a contest and give away a copy!  (Not my copy, of course, as it is a keeper.  It also had an unfortunate incident with an ice pop while I was reading it.  You’ll get a new copy from Amazon or Borders.)

    +2 for telling you about my favorite YA book this year.

    I’d say it’s a split between Soulless by Christopher Golden and My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent. Soulless is a creepy gore fest of zombies and it literally kept me up at night. Zombies rock! My Soul to Take was a unique trip about a girl named Kaylee who can tell when someone is going to die. It’s original and so much fun!

  2. This looks like a really nice contest. I really want to read this book.

    +2 My favorite YA book that I read so far in 2009 is Unwind by Neal Shusterman. It was an amazing twist on abortion with those being aborted during ages 13-18. There body parts are then used kinda like stem cells. Really makes you think.

    +2 I also have to say Unwind by Neal Shusterman. I read this a couple of weeks ago and WOW. I loved it. I did not put the book down until I had finished it late into the night – a science-fiction read that will stay in your head well after you’ve turned the last page. Must read!!

    +2 My favorite YA of 2009 would be Identical by Ellen Hopkins of the Uglies trilogy by Scott Westerfeld! I have a hard time picking favorites, but they were great reads that I could not put down!

    * +2 for telling me the name of and a little bit about your favorite YA book in 2009:
    Willow by Julia Hoban. Willow is about a teenage girl who cuts herself because she thinks that she killed her parents. As you learn in the first few pages, Willow’s parents had drank too much wine at dinner and asked her to drive when they went home. Because of bad weather, she lost control of the car and her parents died in the accident. Now, all of this information is told within the first few pages. It is an amazing book. I rarely cry when reading books but Willow had me so engaged that I was far more than teary. I am not terribly into novels that focus on subjects like self-mutilation, but Willow was done so perfectly. When I finished the book, I wasn’t thinking about the cutting, I was thinking about the relationships that Julia Hoban wove between the various characters. And by relationships, I don’t simply mean romantic relationships… I mean every relationship Willow had with each of the characters in the book.

    +2 My favorite YA book of 2009 is Twilight. I’m a little bit late on jumping on this series. I saw the books late year but never gave them a second thought. A few friends recommended the series to me but I refused because I wasn’t into vampires. I had no desire to read about them. I finally bit the bullet and borrowed Twilight from the library. I was hooked from the beginning! It’s a great love story with conflict which makes it appealing. I am now what you might call a “fangbanger”. I love vampire love stories now!

    +2 I would have to say Fire by Kristin Cashore is my favorite read this year. I was surprised that she could do better than Graceling, which was amazing enough. Fire is actually the prequel to Graceling so it deals with way different characters.

    +2 Favorite YA book – Well I really liked Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. If you have not read it you should give it a try.

    +2 I really liked ‘Need’ by Carrie Jones. It had a slow start, but definitely picked up toward the end. I look forward to the story progressing some more.

    I haven’t had the chance to read ‘Hunger Games’ yet, but it’s on my list. I’ve only heard great things, so I can’t wait to read it.

    +2 for giving you the deets on my favorite YA book this year… this book is entirely different from The Hunger Games (or anything else SciFi/Action-Adventure/etc.), but Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford was awesome.

  25. I love this contest. I have been really wanting a copy of Hunger Games. +1
    My favorite books so far are Poison Study, City of Glass, and Graceling and Storm Glass.
