GIVEAWAY: Tithe by Holly Black

Hi everyone! It's Sunday so that means it's time for another giveaway! (For those of you waiting for the announcement of the Perchance to Dream ARC winner, it will be forthcoming as soon as I am back from a weekend trip in NC. There's no internet access where I am, so that is delaying my ability to choose the winner, but don't worry I will post the announcement later today!)

Book cover
Today's giveaway is my paperback copy of Tithe by Holly Black. Some of you might remember my review of Tithe earlier this year, and while this book wasn't my cup of tea, a lot of other readers loved it, and love the series! Be sure to check out the links to other reviews if you take a look at mine.

So now is your chance to win this book...

Here's how to enter (as always, my preference is for one comment with all your entries, but it's not required):

+1 entry ~ Comment on this post and tell me why you want to win this book. Please be sure to leave your email address so I can easily reach you if you're the lucky winner!

+2 entries each ~ Become a follower on Google Friend Connect, Twitter (@Melsbookshelf), Facebook's Networked Blogs

+3 entries each ~ Join the Melissa's Bookshelf Facebook Page, Stumble, Digg, or bookmark this post on del.i.cious, post about the giveaway on your blog (sidebar or a separate post is accepted), tweet about the giveaway (please include @Melsbookshelf in your tweet).

As always, there are a lot of ways you can enter... Like the last time, this contest is open internationally! You have until midnight EST on Saturday, June 19th to enter and the winner will be announced sometime on Sunday, June 20th, as will the next giveaway! Good luck!

    +1: I like books. =] Actually, I'm curious to see what this book is like, because I've only read the Wicked Lovely series before, and haven't been able to find anything else even as mildly engaging. Also, I've wanted to read it for a while because of the gorgeous cover.

  10. While I've heard lots of good things about Holly Black, for some reason I've never come across any of her books for myself. I've heard that her books star bad-ass faeries, though, which just sounds great to begin with - and I'm pretty sure I read in an interview with her that her faeries are plants which have wings but can't fly, etc? That's such a unique take on the whole faerie thing, I love it, and I can't wait to see what other cool ideas she comes up with in her books!

  11. I haven’t read any of this author’s books, but your review sounds like a book that I would take pleasure in reading.

    Thanks you so much for hosting this giveaway.
