*CLOSED* Spring Blog Carnival: Ticket Booth


Welcome one and all to the Spring Blog Carnival! Here at Writer Quirk I am hosting the TICKET BOOTH. Why did I choose the ticket booth? Because it is where all the fun begins. You can't ride those crazy rides without tickets!

Since ticket booths are where you start your fun at a carnival, I've decided that the prizes for this booth are BOOKS where the fun begins, also known as the first books in a series.

So what can you win here at the Ticket Booth?

Giveaway #1 (US ONLY)
A hardback copy of Heist Society by Ally Carter, a Lunar Chronicles bookmark, a Team Cinder button, a signed The Madman's Daughter bookmark, and a signed The Archived bookmark.



Giveaway #2 (INTERNATIONAL)
Your choice of YA book from The Book Depository (the book must be YA, the first book in a series, and $11 or under). Below are some examples (you don't have to pick just from these, but whatever you choose needs to match the requirements above):

 

Before you enter:
~ Please review my Giveaway Rules.
~ The carnival runs from May 6th to May 12th.
~ Please note that Giveaway #1 is US ONLY and Giveaway #2 is INTERNATIONAL so long as The Book Depository ships to your country.

How to enter:
~ Leave a comment on this post with your answer to the challenge question.
~ You must include which giveaway (#1 US / #2 INTL) you are entering (you may enter both if you qualify for both).
~ If you are entering Giveaway #2, you must leave the title and author of the book you would like from The Book Depository.
~ You must include an email address so that I may contact you if you win.
~ Failure to follow these instructions may result in disqualification.

And now for the challenge question:
 
If you had the opportunity to give up all of your carnival tickets to meet one author,
who would he/she be?


Don't forget to visit all the other amazing booths! You can find the full list here.

Good luck and enjoy the carnival!

  2. I would definitely want to meet Sarah Dessen. She has been my favorite for so long. And she seems so down to Earth and super nice. I think it would be a blast to meet her.

    Entering for both giveaways. For number 2: Catching Jordan

  3. To be honest, I have two authors who I really want to meet. I am picking one, and the other will just get mentioned. :3 I would LOVE to meet Kristin Cashore, she would be kidnapped then and made to tell me stories all day long. This is not creepy, it is her fault for being awesome. The other author who ranked up there was Maria V Snyder.

    I would like to enter BOTH giveaways. For the second I would love to get Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas.

  5. Challenge Answer ~ Laini Taylor…she's a new favourite but she seems so easy-going, friendly-looking and fun (I mean she's got pink hair y'all) and I'd love to pick the brains behind The Daughter of Smoke & Bone, that book is so lyrical and poetic OMG I'm just speechless when it comes to that book.

    Giveaway Choice - Giveaway 1 and Giveaway 2 please. Note for #2 - If I should Die by Amy Plum

    Oh, man! This question stumped me for a while, because although I read a lot, I don't actually want to meet the authors whose books I enjoy. =/ Having given it some thought, I'd say that I think a meeting with Jerry Spinelli would be worthwhile. I'd love to ask him about his quirky characters and how he continues to have such an authentic teenage "voice" in his novels. =)

    I'm entering for Giveaway #2 and would choose Anna and the French Kiss. Thanks!
