Because Love is a Deadly Disease: The REQUIEM ARC giveaway
So, here’s the situation. If you followed TLT last year, you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. I woke up in the middle of the night and wrote here a love letter. I dragged my family across the city to meet author Lauren Oliver. Christie went to ALA Annual with one instruction: Do Not Come Home unless you bring me an ARC of REQUIEM by Lauren Oliver. Which she did. (Who loves you Christie? That’s right – ME!)
BUT THEN . . . I turns out that neither Heather or Christie have read Delirium. Insert for shame face here. It’s like, I have somehow failed them. So, we are going to be doing a group reading and discussion. Please join us.
The first week of February: read Delirium and join us on Friday, February 8th for a Twitter chat. We’ll see what Heather and Christie – and YOU! – think of book one in the series. #TLTDelirium, 2/8/2013 (time TBA)
The second week of February is Harlequin Teen week, so you’ll have 2 weeks to read Pandemonium. We’ll have a Twitter chat on Friday, February 22nd to see what everyone thinks. #TLTDelirium, 2/22/2013 NOON CENTRAL, 1 Eastern
Then in March, we’re all about the Requiem. Live Tweetchat Friday, March 15th at NOON Eastern. #TLTDelirium
To help facilitate this discussion of one of Karen’s favorite YA book series, we’re giving away a copy of the ARC for Requiem. That’s right, I am going to give you Christie’s copy. Not mine, don’t be silly. We are opening the contest today and it will run through Saturday, February 9th so that we can get that copy into your hands. The CAVEAT is, you have to do a book review for us after you read it. I can do it but it would probably go like this: Oh I loved this book so much . . . . Or, what?! How could it have ended that way?! See, I am totally not a reliable source at this point in the game. But don’t worry, I will share with you all the feels as I read the book.
And you did hear, right? They are going to be making Delirium into a TV series.
All the info you need to enter the contest appears below. Don’t let the amor delirium nervosa get to you.
