HUGE Sookie Stackhouse Giveaway!!

So I've been planning this giveaway for awhile when I knew I wasn't as into the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries as most people out there. Then today I noticed that Beth at Beth Fish Reads is hosting a Sookie Stackhouse Challenge and I thought it would be a great time to help someone out with participating in the challenge.

So what exactly is the prize you ask? The 1st SEVEN Sookie Stackhouse books in paperback!! (Dead Until Dark, Living Dead In Dallas, Club Dead, Dead To The World, Definitely Dead, Dead As A Doornail, and All Together Dead) The first three have been read only once, and the next four have never been read! That's right, one lucky person will win all seven books! They were originally in a boxed set, but sadly the box was cheap and fell apart, so the winner will just receive the seven books in excellent condition!

Sookie Stackhouse books

Here's How To Enter:

You can do this by leaving either one comment with all your entries or several comments--either way is fine. Please include your email address in every comment you leave so that I can easily contact you if you are the winner!

~ For 1 entry: Leave a comment telling me why you want to read these books.

~ For 1 additional entry: Become a follower. If you are already a follower, you will receive 2 additional entries!

~ For 2 additional entries: Tweet about this contest (and include me, @Melsbookshelf).

~ For 3 additional entries: Blog about this contest--in a post or on your sidebar, either method is acceptable.

~ For 2 additional entries each: Leave a comment on my reviews of the first three books in the series: Dead Until Dark, Living Dead In Dallas, and Club Dead. Be sure to let me know in your comment on THIS post that you have done that, as well, it makes it easier for counting entries...

So basically you can get up to 13-14 entries for this contest, improving your chances to win! And guess what--this contest is open to EVERYONE, not just the US and Canada! I figured it's time to celebrate the start of summer and summer fun! Even I'll get a few weeks off this year, so I wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate.

The deadline to enter is Sunday, July 5th at 8pm Eastern. After that, I'll tally the entries and leave it up to Random.org to pick the winner, to be announced either that night or the following day!

Good luck to everyone who enters!!

  2. I really want to watch Tru Blood, but I won't do it until I read the novels. I love Anna Paquin, so this is killing me!

    Hook me up, please!

  3. Great contest and perfect timing since I want to enter Beth Fish Reads's Sookie challenge. Saw her added tweet about this and happy to find your blog, I just started a book blog.

    So, I am now a follower, and have tweeted about this contest! And why do I want to win, well - I often want to read what inspired a movie or TV show; and I think these would be a great read in August.

  5. I posted about Sookie Stackhouse today and somebody directed me to this superb give-away!
    I'm enjoying the TV show and found the first in the series to be a good "popcorn" read.

    Please add me to the draw. My email address is bunnyboyler@hotmail.com.

    Now that I've found your blog I'll also follow it!

  9. Great giveaway, Melissa, this is just awesome!

    I want to read these books because I’ve heard such great things about them. I’m a huge vampire fan, and these are some books I’m yet to read, and feel I’m missing out on something huge. I don’t want to anymore! So it would be amazing to read these novels, and see why Sookie and co has most people in a coming back for more! (+1)

  11. Ooh, this is a great giveaway!

    I read and enjoyed the first book a few months back, and I'd love to read the rest of the series. I've got to admit, DEAD UNTIL DARK was fluffier than I was expecting, but I still think the series would make for some fun, quick summer reading.

  34. What an awesome giveaway! I love boxed sets of books!

    So, why do I want to read these? To be honest, I've never read a vampire story before. I've always kind of shied away from adult fantasy though I love childrens' fantasy stories. I've heard a lot about this series, though, and love mystery stories so I'd like to give them a try.

    ~ Why I want to read these books. I've already read the first few and want to read the newer ones but don't remember which one have been read. I joined the challenge and want to start from the beginning. Now I do own the first three but there are somewhere together, nicely protected in a plastic box, in the black hole that should have a car in it. I may or may not find my copies before the challenge is over. When the contest is over, I'll probably have a contest of my own ;-)

  178. #1 - They've just started showing True Blood on HBO in Malaysia and unfortunately due to its content, there are a lot of edits from the censorshipboard (yes really!). So I reckon if I win the series I'd be able to read up on all the juicy details without the censors!

    #1 - would love to read these books because they sound like a fun, 'mature' take on the vampire hype that's all over these days...something I'd enjoy more than the other vampire fluff out there.
