The Night Circus Giveaway

I want to tell you how cool/crazy good/amazingwonderfulstupendous The Night Circus is. Sadly, I can’t. But only because I haven’t read it yet :) I can tell you that I’m dying to read it. And I can tell you that I’m dying to read it even more after getting a chance to meet the author, Erin Morgenstern, last week.

I got the chance to go to the pre-launch party for this book last week, which was really exciting. And by exciting, what I mean is ‘how cool...oh god, what am I going to wear... repeat after me, Becci, you will NOT do that thing where you ramble off random babble just because you get nervous in groups of people you don’t know... oh god, WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR...’

And that is just a little window into the crazy, folks.

But I went, and it was incredibly cool. The party was held at Verrill Farm in Concord, MA (and I totally took a wrong turn and started driving to Walden Pond... how cool is that?), which is where the book is set. There were tents and strings of lights and circus-y folk. It was really sort of magical.

And there was one very grateful, gracious, lovely author in Erin Morgenstern.

So, I have an ARC of The Night Circus for me, which I will be digging into very shortly. AND, because I think you are all special snowflakes, I have an extra one for one of you!



The book hits stores on September 13th. I’m going to make this giveaway a quick one, so that you get it before then. Heck, you’ll probably even get it while I’m still reading, since I read like old people... well, let’s just say it’s not fast. And then, we can send each other delightful little messages about how much we love it, because I just have a feeling we’re going to.

What do you have to do? Hmmmm. In the comments below, tell me which book, one that hasn’t been released yet, you’re dying to read (before 11:59 PM EST on 9/4). This one? Another one? (This is a nice way to enter, and it’s also a shameless way for me to find out books that are coming up that I might not know of yet. I’m shellfish, what can I say?)

Open to U.S. and Canada only. Closes 9/4 at 11:59 PM.

I have been dying to read Lola and the Boy Next Door, but I was also intrigued by this book. It's the cover. I'm such a sucker for pretty covers.

I also get nervous about seeing random people. I think I have an outfit ready, then I put it out and I start freaking out. You are not alone. :)

Lola and the Boy Next Door is one I am just giddy for!

Liz said...

Hiya! I just added a cool scifi/thriller novel to my goodreads list that comes out end of September called The Revisionists. *muah*

Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World by Michael Lewis (the guy who wrote The Blind Side and Moneyball and the Big Short)

I'm almost always a nonfiction girl, but I've heard so so so many amazing things about The Night Circus... I'm frantic to read it:)

ladonna watkins said...

Yes, it looks like a great read. There is a lot of buzz around this book.

Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta. Must fly to Australia to buy it in October.

Holy crap this is a trick question right because I have like 50 books I'm waiting for release for!

Probably the one I am dying to read most is Pandemonium the second in the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver... She left it on a bit of a cliffie and I'm dying to know what happens next. The characters and story are addicting and I recommend the first book to anyone and everyone!

Second - would have to be Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent series. I can't wait to read more about Four and Tris. I absolutely loved the first book and would again recommend it to anyone.

I have a TON more, but I'll leave you with these!

I honestly have been dying to read this book as well and if I don't win will definitely be purchasing on the 13th!

Oooooooohhhh, I've been dying to get my hands on this. Well, this and The Leftovers by Tom Perotta. (Although that one is because I didn't like The Abstinence Teachers, so I'm wondering if I'll like his new one.)

I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for this one!

tonya said...

I'm so interested in this one! You'll have to let me know how it is. :) Upcoming releases I'm most excited for... ummm... Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey, Incarnate by Jodie Meadows and Hallowed by Cynthia Hand.

Becci said...

You guys are giving me crazy good book ideas! I luff you <3

All I can say is LLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAA. I'm jonesing for it so hard.

Let's see, I'm dying to read a book coming up by you. So there's that. Also, I don't expect to win because that would probably be considered lame (since we're like, all up in each other's business) but I'll put my name in the hat anyway because I like to read what you're reading and then flail.

Love, me

Actually, The Night Circus has been on my radar for quite some time. Unfortunately, due to school and all the books I'm required to read for class, I'm unaware of any other new releases besides this one and Roger Ebert's memoirs (which I bet will be a great read).

Happy reading!

Books I'm anticipating: The Night Circus, Shatter Me, Clockwork Prince and City of Lost Souls annnnd pretty much any and every other book that I can get my hands on but don't have time to read. So many books, so little time.
