Contest

Welcome to my first contest!

I am offering two books - if you want to try to win both, you need to enter twice. If you are just interested in one, tell me which.

First is an ARC of the paperback edition of THE GOD OF ANIMALS by Aryn Kyle.
God of Animals
Kyle's debut novel features Alice, a yound girl trying to grow up in the wake of her sister leaving and getting married and a classmate's tragic death. Her mother suffers from severe depression and her father thinks he can save their farm by catering to rich women. Kyle's characters express real human emotion, and she captures the problem of being the younger and less-talented sister so well it's hard to believe she's an only child.

The second offering is one of this season's "it" books for young adults: WAKE by Lisa McMann.
Wake
Janie falls into the dreams of others against her will. Sexual fantasies, tormented pasts, she's seen it all. But perhaps there is a way for her to use her power to help others? I found the beginning of the novel slow compared to the second half, but it's still a nice, easy read. McMann uses language to create a dreamlike flow that matches the content.

How do you enter? Just leave a comment on this post or e-mail me at inbedwithbooks AT yahoo DOT com. If you blog about the contest and send me a link, I'll give you two extra entries to be put toward the book of your choice (two for WAKE, two for THE GOD OF ANIMALS, or one for each). I'll announce the winners on May 1st.

  1. I already have WAKE which is weird because I rarely ever buy books but I did buy that one. So I'm entering for The God of Animals.

  2. I posted a blog on my myspace about the contest. Since I already have WAKE could I have the extra entries go towards The God of Animals? That'd be great!

  4. Oooh, count me in for Wake, it sounds good!

    Good luck with your exams! Have you started on your papers already? Do you know what you're gonna write about or do you not have the slightest idea? lol.

    Yep! I'm half way through and it's very good! So far, I'm understanding pretty much everything without having read Driven - hopefully soon though!

  7. I already have Wake - Lisa got me interested in that one long before it came out, but The God of Animals sounds intriguing. My major is psychology so I want to know how Aryn will portray depression and show Alice dealing with the death...

  61. Phentermine is the most commonly prescribed prescription appetite suppressant, accounting for 50% of the prescriptions. Part of this reason is because it's significantly cheaper than the other major FDA-approved diet drugs, Meridia and Xenical.
    [url=http://www.buyphentermine1.com]phentermine[/url]
    Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.
    Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning.

    Most people take the drug for 3-6 weeks; the length of treatment depends on how you respond to phentermine. Phentermine can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or for a longer period than your doctor tells you to.

    To prevent side effects, phentermine should be taken with meals. If you are taking an extended-release (long-acting) product, do not chew or crush the tablet. There are some tablets that can be crushed and mixed with food.

  62. Phentermine resin became available in the United States in 1959 and Phentermine Hydrochloride in the early 1970s.
    [url=http://www.buyphentermine1.com]cheap phentermine[/url]
    How does Phentermine work?
    Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.
    The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.

    How should this phentermine be used?

    Phentermine comes in tablets and extended-release capsules. It usually is taken as a single daily dose in the morning or three times a day 30 minutes before meals. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take phentermine exactly as directed.

  63. If you are planning to try your hand in NFL football betting remember these few tips and enjoy betting.
    online betting
    Well, Football world cup needs no formal introduction, it is more commonly known as FIFA world cup. You can get the glimpse of the event every four years, when millions of crazy football fans gather to watch the 32 participant’s men’s national football team struggling for the biggest trophy.
    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet football[/url]

    Although I have noted just 4 reasons above, this list could have gone on forever. The point here is clear. There is simply too much uncertainly in nearly every aspect of these pre-season games, making a reasonable assessment of the teams a near impossibility.

    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet online[img]http://www.sportsbook.com/images/header-sportsbook-logo.gif[/img][/url]

    (Team A's RZC%F - League Average) - (League Average - Team B's RZC%A)

    Which gives us: (55 - 50) - (50 - 60) = +15%.

  64. 1.) Some game sites post information about the number of players currently playing at a particular game of bingo. Accordingly, you have to plan the number of bingo cards in your online bingo game. More numbers of cards yield better results when the number of players is low. Your winning percentage is then higher.
    [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]bingos[/url]
    Online bingo is a game of chance. However, you can develop specific bingo systems to turn the game odds in your favor. The simplicity of the game offers extensive scope for you to employ winning bingo systems. Normally, every bingo player tries to match the called numbers on the screen with those in his bingo card in little time. This helps you call out 'bingo' earlier to ensure your win at the game.
    [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]bingo[/url]
    Bingo is a fantastic game and is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of entertainment on the internet, our advice is to have fun and be safe, we wish you all the luck in the world with your bingo playing, thanks for reading.

    Your aim would be to cover the prescribed pattern with the bingo letters, by coordinating the letters and numbers called. The patterns can be anything like, u shape, t shape, etc, though it usually is horizontal or vertical. As soon as you get the pattern, you should shout bingo and you get the prize. In case there are others who shouted at the same time as you, the prize will be shared among all winners.

  65. Everything about horse betting

    In addition to offering the full menu of track bets, i.e., Win, Place, Show, Daily Doubles, Exactas, Quinellas, Trifectas and Superfectas, some have started offering additional types of wagers such as a two horse match bet. This, in our opinion, is the most significant opportunity for horse racing today. In an era where proposition bets on football range from the point spread to which way the wind will be blowing at half time, horse racing is missing the boat. They've failed to recognize what Las Vegas has known for some time, namely that gaming is entertainment and that the way to increase 'handle' is to offer more types of wagers. This year's Superbowl offered over 300 proposition bets resulting in a record setting day for the Las Vegas sports books with over 94 million dollars wagered. To put that into perspective, that's about .6% of the 15 billion dollars wagered annually on horse racing.
    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horce racing[/url]
    In a sport that is not only highly competitive but relies on high-stakes gambling to sustain itself, some people feel it is unlikely that a practice shown to be a disadvantage would continue. However, such cruelties exist and many countries are taking strong steps to stop it. Like in India for example, it is banned, that is until the jockey has proven himself.


    The Triple Crown stands as the ultimate test of greatness, and that's why on the first Saturday in May each year, America's thoughts turn to horse racing and the hope of just one more Triple Crown winner. Because we do, after all, need another hero.
    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horse betting[/url]
    Barbaro with Edgar Prado on board has won all 6 of his lifetime starts, 4 of his wins in 2006 and all at distances of a mile or more (his first 3 races were on the turf). Barbaro will be the odds on favorite for the Preakness. Gone are the double digit returns when we picked him for the Derby so most of us are left looking for horses to combine him with for the exacta, trifecta and superfecta wagers. Even though we want to see him win, at the probable scant return for a win, one must look to see if there's a horse in the field that can best him.
