Since my birthday is this month, I decided to host huge a contest! :D I have some fantastic books to give away, thanks to the generosity of many authors!!
Since I always loved riddles, I’ve (attempted) to write a few riddles about books. Each riddle has a few clues that refer to one specific book. For every riddle you give me the correct book title & author for, you get an entry into the drawing.
There will be a riddle every day for this contest, posted at a different site each day from today, August 1st to August 28th. The first riddle will be today, at my site. The last riddle will also be posted on my site on August 28th. The winner will be announced on my birthday, August 29th! Between the 1st and the 28th, there will be another riddle posted here on a random date, so keep you eyes out! Not all the riddles refer to YA books!
You may answer the riddles as you find them—you do not have to answer all of them nor answer them in order.
Once you find a riddle and figure out the answer, just send me an email with:
“BDAY CONTEST” in the subject line
The Riddle: (copy & paste from the site you found it at)
Answer: (full book title + author)
The name of the site where you found the riddle:
Your site’s URL: (if you have one)
Please do this and send me a SEPARATE email for every riddle you answer—each riddle you answer correctly & send me an email for will count as one entry into this contest.
If you blog/post about this contest somewhere, send me a separate email telling me so and you will get 2 extra entries.
Answer all the riddles and I’ll give you an extra free entry!
All entries must be recieved by Aug 28th, midnight, EST!
Sorry, this giveaway is only open to US residents.
