The winner is….
Alexis has been notified by email. As I’m trying to get this one out asap I’ve picked a backup name, so if I don’t hear back within 24 hours I will be sending it to them instead.
Thank you everyone for entering the giveaway. I will have more ARCs that I will be passing along soon, so feel free to check back.
I never keep an ARC unless it’s signed to me and believe they should be read and reviewed as many times as possible to spread the word for the author.
Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey will be released on June 21, 2011 in the U.S.
I received this ARC from a trade, and I actually have a second ARC of this coming from another trade at some point in the next month or so. Can you tell I wanted this book really, really badly? I love the author’s Drake Chronicles so was ecstatic to get a copy… or two.
But, I recently entered and apparently won another copy of this amazing book in a contest held by the publisher, Bloomsbury and received it in the mail this weekend. (I didn’t find out I won until after I had traded for this book. I’m not that much of an ARC collector.) I will be reading and reviewing based on that copy, which is the UK edition ARC.
Although this is perhaps a different version of the book than I will be reading, I don’t feel that it is right to hang onto it just because. So, I would like to give this away to another blogger/reviewer so that they, too, can help spread the word about this book.
The copy I received was part of a blog tour so it’s not in pristine condition. There is at least one page that has been folded down, the edges are roughed up, and there are some marks/stains on the page edges. So, if you’re simply looking to keep a pristine copy of the book, this isn’t that copy. But if you’re just looking to do an early review of a possibly great new book, then please enter the giveaway.
Here’s a photo where you can see some wear and tear.
So as with my other ARC giveaway, to honor the spirit and purpose of the ARC, this one is only for readers who will be willing to review it. You don’t need a blog. Goodreads or LibraryThing or other review site will be fine. Unfortunately, due to time constraints I have to restrict it to the U.S. or Canada so that it can be read and reviewed on or before release date.
1. One entry per person.
2. You must be 13 or older.
3. Giveaway is for the U.S. or Canada only.
4. You agree to review the book on or before release date. (I will be checking – and maybe discovering a really cool new blog. If you don’t post a review, you will no longer be eligible for future ARC giveaways.)
5. You must have a blog or a place where you will post your review, such as Goodreads, LibraryThing, etc.
6. Your review does not have to be positive. It just needs to be an honest one. And if you are on Goodreads, please add the book to your “to read” list.
7. Contest ends at midnight. Winner will be announced on May 11th.
There is no requirement to like or follow. But if you’d like to spread the word to other reviewers who might be interested that would be awesome!

UPDATE: I will be drawing names from a hat. Forgot to mention it!
