Well, I have officially decided to do an ARC giveaway of Sarah Dessen's newest book (will only be released in May 2011 - but I have an ARC ready to go).  Its called What Happened to Goodbye and yes, I have read it, but will keep my review for the release date! (sorry guys, you will have to make up your own mind :)

I hesitated to do this giveaway/contest because shipping books out of Canada is very, very expensive since there is no "media mail" available, but I thought I would spread a little "good" karma as I feel as though everyone needs more of that :)

About the ARC.  Its in good shape. No loose or missing pages, however, there is a coffee stain on the top of the book.  You can see it when the book is closed - but you can't really see it on the individual pages.  So, for those of you who are addicts of "pristine books" this isn't it.  Otherwise, its in good shape!

Here is how to enter:
  • You get 5 ENTRIES if you are already a follower and leave me a message as to which of Sarah's books you prefer;
  • You get 4 ENTRIES if you become a new follower and tell me that you are now following me;
  • You get 10 ENTRIES (plus any combination of the above extra entries) if you blog about this on your site and let me know.
  • Finally, if you Twitter and Facebook about this contest, you will get an additional 10 entries!
The contest is open to EVERYONE (yep, International is fine) as long as you all know that I will use the cheapest shipping method.  The contest ends on March 6 at midnight (no particular reason why) and I will use Randomorg.com to select the winner.

Good luck !!!!!!

Ooh, thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm a major Sarah Dessen fan-girl, though who isn't? :)

+5 ENTRIES for already being a follower and telling you which of Sarah's books I prefer: Out of all her books Just Listen is my absolute favorite. I've read it at least 8 times, and never do I get bored by it. I also adore This Lullaby and The Truth About Forever as well Along for The Ride and well basically all her books...

This new novel was a fun read and kept me absorbed most of the time. But I have to say that it lacked the special something that This Lullaby and The Truth About Forever have that make them so wonderful. There were also cliches/metaphors that seemed to fill every page; it was a bit overdone. My high expectations from her previous books were somewhat disappointed, but I'm hoping she can pull off something better with her next one.
