Want To Win an ARC of The Eighth Day?!

 
A few months ago, I saw on Dianne Salerni's blog that her publisher was looking for people to send ARCs of The Eighth Day too. I excitedly jumped at the chance and submitted my info. Once I got it, I read it in one day and later posted a review here on my blog. Imagine my surprise when a few weeks ago I got an email from Goodreads saying I'd won an ARC in their giveaway! One that I'd completely forgotten about entering when I'd first marked TED to read.
 
I'm now the proud owner of two TED ARCs. Being a greedy bibliophile, I'm a bit tempted to sit them side by side on my bookshelf and murmur things like, "Aren't you just so pretty!" But that would be creepy and weird. And wrong, as I need to send off this second ARC baby to be enjoyed by someone else who can then do their part to let the world know how fantastic this book is. 
 
So if you'd like to win, just leave a comment and you'll be entered for the drawing. Also, Dianne has awesomely added to this giveaway by letting me know she'll send some temporary tattoos(of family crests that are found in TED- and that were designed by her daughter) to the winner as well. Awesomesauce! The giveaway will be open for four days, w/the winner announced on Sunday, Feb. 16th. All that I ask is that you mark TED to read on Goodreads(if you have already, fantastic!), and follow Dianne on any(or all!) of the following social media links below:

And in the comments, feel free to answer this question: If you woke up one morning and the world was empty of people{which happens in TED}, what would you do? Hunker in your house? Drive madly about? Eat up all your food instead of rationing it? {that would be me...} Though please note you don't have to answer this prompt to be entered in the drawing. Just thought it'd be fun to read some of your answers. Your comment can simply be- I WANT THIS BOOK!!!
 
Because trust me, you do.

  1. Leandra, when you wrote about TED a few weeks ago, I went ahead and put it on my Amazon wish list to buy as soon as it comes out. I REALLY want this book! = ) It sounds wonderful, and right up my alley, so thanks for the chance to win an ARC! I think if I woke up one day and there was no one else around I am pretty sure I'd be totally freaked out. That whole premise gives me butterflies--like when you are standing at the edge of a mountain, looking at the ground below!

    1. Great way to describe it, Becky! And yup, I think both you and your boys will really love this book. :)

  2. Oooh, I've been dying to read this. And man, if I were to wake up to an empty world ... I'd probably hunker down and not leave my house. But if it kept happening every week ... hmmm ... who knows! It might be kind of cool to try all the things that were too expensive for me to actually pay someone for :)

    1. Alright! Sounds like we've got a bit of a daredevil here! =)

  3. I WANT THIS BOOK! It sounds great! I'll ditto Becky above~ I think I'd be a little too freaked out to do much. Maybe hit the nearest bookstore and get every book I want???

    1. That's a good plan. I could wreak a lot of havoc in an empty B&N, lol!

  4. This book is amazing. (I, too, received an ARC). I just haven't posted my review yet.... Love is Still in the Air on my blog. Next week, though...

  5. If I woke up and found there weren't any people I'd have to talk to my characters more. Not that I talk to them much at the moment you understand.

  6. Wahoo! You are one lucky lady. If I woke up and I was the only one there, after a brief panic, I sit down with my wall of waiting books and DIVE.

    1. I am! I even thought about taking both copies of TED and buying a lottery ticket. =D

  7. Fun!! And I would totally do that with an extra ARC. At least until I gave it away--I love staring at the pretty covers on my shelves :) And if I woke up to something as awesome as an eighth day, I would probably sleeeeep a whole lot. Then actually get some good writing time in :)

  8. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I already follow Dianne on Twitter, FB, and on her blog, and as of five seconds ago, I am a new follower of your blog as well.

    Since TED is a kidlit book, I'd answer your question putting myself in the shoes of my younger kid self. If I woke up one morning and everyone was gone, of course, I'd freak out first. But after I get over that, I'd do all the things I've wanted to do, but probably wasn't able to because I was a kid, like running a cotton candy machine or driving a race car. But what I'd be most excited about is that I can read all my books and write and write and write without any interruption.

    1. Unlimited cotton candy sounds like a plan to me! And our priorities sure do change as we get older, don't they? *smile*

  9. I've had this on my Goodreads list pretty much forever--I can't wait to read it!
    And, yeah, if I had an extra day to myself, I'd definitely be reading and writing. Although the boring part of me would probably decide it's a good chance to clean my house without the little ones running about. Gosh, I can't believe I'm that boring sometimes...

    1. Then I'm boring right along w/you, lol!

    2. Ha, chores had crossed my mind too, but then I'm all, "nah! I'm going to be self-indulgent."

  10. My world is NEVER empty, but I will check out the blog.

  11. I don't know that I've read any MG stuff, but you've made it sound great! I think if I woke up to an empty world (meaning my children would be momentarily displaced), I'd write. Could you imagine how many words you'd get down without any interruptions of little hands demanding your time?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lots and lots! ;) And, oh, MG is such a great genre. TED would be a great book to start with!

  12. I think I'd got to Disney World and figure out how to turn on the rides so I could be first in line for every one.

    1. That's another good one! B/c nothing turns me off theme parks faster than having to wait 2 hrs for every ride. :(

  14. I'd love to have this book. To answer the question I would probably hunker down in my house.

  15. Just read your review, and it looks like an excellent read! I would love to add it to my list. (Well, technically I just did. But I would love to add the ARC to my very miniscule ARC collection. [I have one.])

    Given the state of my belly at the moment, I would eat ALL THE FOOD. Because, well, I'm busy doing that anyway. ;) We were snowed in over the weekend, and I managed to finish off a TON of items that were just hanging out, defenseless, in our fridge.
