One of my fellow Utah writer buddies, James Dashner, has a book that came out last week. I don't know if you've heard of him, but he's kind of a big deal--I'm sure he'd agree. His book is called THE MAZE RUNNER.
I just finished it yesterday and it does not disappoint. The plot is fast-paced and keeps you asking questions. He describes it as something like: Lord of the Flies meets Ender's Game. I think that is a perfect comparison.
It is also geared toward boys--as 99% of the characters are male--but it is the kind of story that many girls will be able to get caught up in it as well. I loved it! Thanks James!
I have an ARC, so being the supportive person I am, I purchased a hard cover one, had Dashner sign it and it's up for grabs on the blog. *Drumroll*
Taking my cue from a few giveaways James did on his blog - here are the rules.
1 - Sign up to follow me on twitter, facebook, blog and then leave a comment telling me you did it. Each is worth one entry to the drawing. If you are already following--you are, of course, supremely cool--and you still get the entries, IF you comment and tell me. :)
2 - If you advertise this giveaway on your blog = 1 entry. If you tweet about it = 1 entry. Just make sure to tell me in the comments.
3 - If you've read this or another book that you loved recently. Tell us what it was and what you liked about it. = 1 entry.
4 - You can do all of the above, all of the above you can do, and above are all that you can do. *This is my nod to Nathan Bransford for being hilarious--carry on*
This contest will be open until Sunday night at 9pm Eastern Time. Yes, I'm in Utah. But sometimes I pretend I'm in New York. If you have a problem with that = NEGATIVE 1 entry. ;)
Let the games begin! (By the way, if you clicked on the link in my blog to my blog, then I may or may not be laughing at you right now.)
