Want to win some free books? Here’s your chance …

Posted November 29, 2010 by Sara | Novel Novice 0 Comments

Today marks the first of several weeks of really awesome giveaways here at Novel Novice. What’s the occasion, you ask? Well for starters, it’s the holiday season — and therefore, we’re in a jolly, giving spirit. Secondly, we’re taking a two month hiatus from our Book of the Month features — but we still want to give you the chance to learn about new books and win some great prizes. And thirdly, we’ve got this massive pile of books just begging to be given away (see photo!).

So today, we thought we’d kick things off with a random giveaway for three different titles. Each title has a different entry form, and you can enter for one, two or all three of the books! One winner will be chosen at random for each book.

Remember these simple rules for each contest:

  • One entry per person, per book
  • You may enter all 3 contests
  • U.S. only (sorry, we can’t ship internationally)
  • Use the individual entry forms to enter the contests

ENTRY FORM: Misguided Angel: A Blue Bloods Novel by Melissa de la Cruz

After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the five remaining gates that guard the earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silver Bloods.

Back in New York, Mimi has been elected Regent of a crumbling coven. Struggling with her heartache over the loss of Kingsley and with her overwhelming desire to destroy Jack, she must focus all of her energy on a perilous new threat. Vampires are being abducted and their captors are planning to burn them alive online…for all the world to see. Help arrives in the form of Deming Chen, a Venator from Shanghai, who must untangle the web of deceptions before the killers strike again.

As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart.

ENTRY FORM: Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer

Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?

Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common among guilt-ridden fairies — not humans — and most likely triggered by Artemis’s dabbling with fairy magic. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy.

Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly’s past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind — and the grips of a giant squid — in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants?

ENTRY FORM: Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls: Blast from the Past by Meg Cabot

Allie’s excited about her class field trip. Sure, it’s to a historic one-room schoolhouse, built back before there was the Internet or even cell phones, and Allie’s teacher is encouraging everyone to dress up in old timey costumes, which some of Allie’s friends are actually doing. GAH! But at least she gets to ride on a bus, which she’s never gets to do, living so close to school that she actually has to walk there every day!

But then Mrs. Hunter announces that every student in Room 209 has been assigned a “buddy” for the day–from Allie’s old 4th grade class at Walnut Knolls Elementary School, with whom Pine Heights Elementary is pairing up for the trip. And Allie’s buddy just happens to be her ex-best friend Mary Kay, who betrayed Allie right before she moved! Allie is going to have to spend a whole day sharing an old-timey desk with a big crybaby!

As if things aren’t bad enough, with renovations going on at Allie’s house–there’s a hole in the wall that her kitten, Mewsie, keeps disappearing into. What if Allie’s mom and dad and Uncle Jay make a mistake, and Mewsie gets trapped inside the wall forever?–and with Cheyenne O’Malley and Brittany Hauser getting assigned to be “buddies” together, it looks like this is one blast from the past Allie may not survive. In fact, she’s had enough with old-timey things. It might be time to employ some new rules!

The deadline to enter all three of these giveaways is Sunday, December 5th at midnight (PT).

And be sure to check for more great giveaways throughout December & January, and all year-long here at Novel Novice!
