Are You Hungry For The Hunger Games?: It’s A Reaping Day Giveaway!

4744248155 f4db672237 Are You Hungry For The Hunger Games?: Its A Reaping Day Giveaway!Last week I read and reviewed the first book in The Hunger Games trilogy, and I couldn’t say enough good things about it. In case you missed my review of The Hunger Games, you can check it out here. A couple of days ago, the second book in the series, Catching Fire, came to my doorstep, and I was again overwhelmed by the desire to squeee out loud from sheer excitement.

Although I tend to think that a lot of dystopian novels strike teens at the moment when they themselves are questioning the world around them, and thus, they seem to gel with this age group, feel free to prove me wrong! Truth be told, I’m far a teenager myself and couldn’t put TheHungerGames down for a minute. With this memory of how much I enjoyed first book in this series, it shouldn’t be surprising that two of the books I’m still really anticipating reading this summer are CatchingFire and the final installment in The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay.

All of this build up is leaning toward two things: Mockingjay‘s release on August 24th, 2010 and a great giveaway that I want to announce to you today. Yes, you heard right: I did say something about a giveaway, while at the same time, discussing this trilogy at length. It can only mean one thing: YA Book Shelf has two copies of the paperback edition of The Hunger Games to give to two lucky Canadian residents. So sorry to my followers from across the boarder and throughout the world, but the Canadian only winner restriction is at the publisher’s request!

To enter, you only have to follow me on Twitter or my page on Facebook. Doing both will lead to extra entries being counted in your favor. You can also attain extra entries from helping to promote this contest and The Hunger Games in general as well as by answering the following question: are you Team Peeta, Team Gale or Team Katniss and why OR what do you predict will happen in the August 24th release of Mockingjay? (You see, unlike the novel’s Reaping Day, additional entries in the Reaping Day Giveaway might allow you to reap the rewards of this contest!) If you’ve heard the hype about this series, then you must be dying to know if it’s true – believe me, it is! This contest closes on Wednesday, July 14th @ 8pm EST, but if you aren’t the lucky winner, then you can always buy the paper back version anytime after July 6th!

    I really hope I can win a copy. I’d love to have one for the class library.

    I think that The Hunger Games is such a good book that it kind of can transcend the YA genre. My mom never reads YA books and when she got this from the library, way before anyone knew about it, she LOVED it! Of course, she passed it on to me, who loved it more (so much so that I preordered Mockingjay even though I’m totally broke).

    Good luck to all your contest people! I wish I could enter, but I live in the States. ;(

    Unlike Sam’s mom, I love reading YA lit…found out about The Hunger Games through my 17 year old son. I loved it…I’m eager for more! Like Jeff, would be a great addition to my classroom library.

    It’s a great series, and I hope whoever wins chats with me about what they think once they’ve finished reading the first book. I can’t wait for August 24th!

    Cool – anyway to spread The Hunger Games love is okay in my books. :)

    I keep hearing about this book. Time to read it. (Can’t tell you which team I’m on because I haven’t read it yet.)

    I’ve heard so much about this series but have yet to pick it up! I should really check out what its all about since so many people have given it such good reviews!

  11. July 4, 2010 at 9:05 am

    It’s one of the best times to pick it up, whether you win this contest or not, because by the end of the summer, all three books in the series will be out. You won’t have to wait as long, and believe me, you won’t want to wait long. :)

  12. July 4, 2010 at 11:17 am worries. That was just an idea. Let me know what you think when you get the chance to read it! :)

    Hunger Games is SO SO good… I’m not usually into fantasy of any kind but this book had me HOOKED.

  16. July 5, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    I’ve said it before – I only know of one person who didn’t like The Hunger Games. I don’t always go for the most popular books or TV shows, but I’m really glad that I listened to the hype this time. It’s definitely unputdownable.

    Hunger Games is sooo good! I borrowed it from a friend, so would sure love to win my own copy! I haven’t read Catching Fire yet but I’ve heard it’s just as awesome.

  18. July 6, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    Cool – good luck Shari! I haven’t read Catching Fire yet either, but soon…definitely soon. Of course, the longer I wait, the easier the wait between and Mockingjay‘s release on August 24th will be.

    There is so much praise for this series. I’ve borrowed a copy and read it but I would really like to win a copy for myself. Thanks for the contest.

  20. July 7, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    There is – and the praise is spot on in my opinion. You’re welcome and good luck!

    Team Peeta! Just finished reading Catching Fire, and I’m completely obsessed – borrowed from the library, but would love to win my own copy and get friends hooked, too!

    This sounds like a great book! Thanks for the chance.

  23. July 11, 2010 at 12:07 am

    I would love to win Hunger Games!! The series has had great reviews, so I have no doubt it’s wonderful.

  24. July 11, 2010 at 8:24 am

    It is wonderful, and I’m happy to report that I recently recommended it to someone who isn’t part of the YA book blog community – actually a work colleague – and she just texted me yesterday to say that she’s loving the book. I’ve no doubt that you’ll like it too! :)

  25. July 11, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES. words can’t really describe my love for them :P

  26. July 11, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    oops and by them i meant the series, not the actual games. well… i like the games too but not in that evil kind of way!

  27. July 11, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Hehehe…thanks for your comments Angela! I’m not sure what you mean by “in that evil kind of way” unless it’s that you wouldn’t want to orchestrate the hunger games in the here and now. If that’s the case, then I’m glad. Long live the series!

  28. July 12, 2010 at 3:37 pm

    Wow, thanks for this giveaway! I have got to get Mockingjay! And oh my, it’s going to be released soon! Well…..I like to think it’s soon…

  29. July 12, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    Mockingjay comes out on August 24th…soon, but it still gives you time to read the other two books first! :)

    I have no idea what will happen and I don’t have a team because I am one of the three YA readers in the entire world who hasn’t read Hunger Games. But I can’t wait to read it now!

  31. July 13, 2010 at 10:04 am

    Hehehe…thanks for your comment Lisa! It’s a great time to read The Hunger Games because the final installment comes out August 24th, meaning if you time it right, you could start with one and have them all finished right after one another. :)

    I’m Team Peeta because Peeta’s sensitive, sacrificing, and can cook!

  36. July 14, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    Hehehe…there’s still plenty of time to read the first two books before Mockingjay comes out at the end of August.
