ARC Contest: DIVERGENT!

Balancing reading for a MFA program, my high school curriculum and books I want to read is no easy task. It was made impossibly hard this last week when I picked up my ARC of Veronica Roth's book DIVERGENT.

I couldn't put it down, which was a bad thing because I had to because I had other books that had to be read within a certain time frame.

I did all my reading assignments (yay me!), so now I can focus on DIVERGENT again. I'm about two-thirds of the way done and the book is amazing. Like incredible awesome and glorious! I'm loving the world Veronica's established, the characters and plot. Gush, gush, gush!

A book like this isn't meant to be kept to myself. I was lucky enough to win a copy ahead of time, and I only feel that it's right to pass that luck on.


So....I'm giving away my ARC. That's right...you will have the chance to read the book two months early. Woo hoo!


The rules are simple:

1) You have to be a follower. Just click on the right.

2) You need to share a tatoo that you want or have. The characters in DIVERGENT have some pretty sweet tattoos, so it got me thinking about what kind of ink my blog readers might be sporting (or wanting to!). Share, share, share!

3) You get points every time you blog, tweet or Facebook about the contest. You may do this as often as you want, just fill out a new entry with the link each time. The more you spread the word, the more chances you get!

You have until SUNDAY, MARCH 6th at MIDNIGHT. I'll announce a winner that Monday (and share some of my favorite tattoos).

Good luck!
