Thanks for all of your entries! The contest is now closed. I’ll announce the results soon!

The theme of today’s new contest is Alexis’s Darkroom, a new section of the website full of fun stuff and downloads related to BGDD!

PhotobucketAlexis, of course, is the main character in Bad Girls Don’t Die, and I wanted to have a page of fun extras and links related to the book. We have downloads, photo galleries, quizzes, and links to some supplemental materials I created for the book.

Click here to check it out!

HOW TO ENTER:
+1 entry for commenting below with the name of a book on your TBR (to be read) list!
+1 entry for taking the “Which BGDD character are you most like?” or BGDD trivia quiz and posting your result in your comment! (You can just use the text… using Quibblo’s code takes up an awful lot of room!)
+1 entry if you are the first person to bring a broken or bad link to my attention (it is a new page, after all)
+1 entry for Tweeting about the contest! (Don’t forget to link to this post, mention @katiealender and use the hashtag “#bgddcontest”) — do this up to three times (on three separate days) for more entries!

WHEN TO ENTER:
Any time between now and next Friday, August 14, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.

WHO CAN WIN:
Anyone can enter, although I will only ship prizes within North America/the U.S… if you’re international, enter on behalf of a friend! Please refer to this post for more info about previous winners, etc.

WHAT YOU’LL WIN:

(1) A signed copy of Bad Girls Don’t Die, donated to the contest by friend to all readers and the authors’ fairy godmother, Larramie at The Divining Wand.

(2) A custom tote bag (or crafty item of similar scope–apron, throw pillow, etc.) and eye pillow set, made just for you, after a consultation!

So what are you waiting for? Get entering!

    I’ve got about a hundred books on my TBR list, and our tiny local library has a pitifully meager YA section. The one thing I can do for my writer friends is to ask the library to get their books and keep my eye out for them in book shops. Our local library always happily accepts the titles and ISBNs I give her, so this isn’t an empty gesture: your book will come to Scotland!

    A book on my TBR pile is The Host by Stephanie Meyer.

    +1 I got Kasey Warren – Shy and withdrawn, Kasey is most comfortable hanging out in the company of her creepy doll collection. Her anxiety often leads her to use her older sister as a crutch.

    +1 There are so many books on my TBR list, but one particularly is Going Bovine by Libba Bray

    +1 I took the which character are you like, and this is what it came up with:
    Carter Blume

    On the surface, Carter is the ultimate smooth-talking prep. He’s clever, funny, popular, and smart. But behind that facade, Carter has a secret.

    +1 I tweeted about the contest @thebookcellarx

    +1 The nexy book on my incredibly long TBR list is The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong, the sequel to the amazing book, The Summoning.
    +1 I am Kasey Warren.
    Shy and withdrawn, Kasey is most comfortable hanging out in the company of her creepy doll collection. Her anxiety often leads her to use her older sister as a crutch.
    (Totally fits. I even actually collect dolls.)
    +1 My BGDD IQ was 95%.

    I don’t want to enter but…on my TBR list is Oh. My. Gods. by Childs.

    I have a broken link but I won’t give it away.

    I am most like…Megan?! Not that it’s totally horrible but really…?

    Sigh…I only got 85% BGDD IQ. Well…that’s a B. It is very difficult to be a freak about grades and grading my quiz IQ.

    I’m such a perfectionist…in a not-too-good way.

    +1 – 1 book on my TBR list is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

    Next up on my TBR pile I believe is Wicked Lovely by: Melissa Marr, because still haven’t read it. :(

    I got Alexis Warren
    Alexis sees herself as way more than just the pink-haired loner at school. She’s fascinated with photography fiercely independent–to a point that almost gets herself and the people she loves in serious trouble.

    P.S. I’m glad you added a reader guide because as the YA librarian it makes it so much easier to pick this book as a book group read when I can get some guideline questions.

    Oh, wow. My TBR pile? So many to choose from. I’ll narrow it down to three, all of which are coming out in the next couple of months (so technically they aren’t on the pile *yet*): Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (the sequel to The Hunger Games), Crossing Washington Square by Joanne Rendell and According to Jane by Marilyn Brant.

    As for characters, I’m Alexis.
