THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT ARC Giveaway


ROAR AND LIV will be released in less than a month! To celebrate, I’ve decided to give away three ARCs of THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT.

Open to US Residents only. (Sorry!)

To enter, leave a comment below answering the following question:

The last thing I did that I’m proud of is ______ .

It can be big or small—anything really. (Opened the door for someone, finished a book, aced a test, etc.) Your answers will NOT have any bearing on who wins. I just think we should pat ourselves on the back a little bit more than we do, and I know you guys are awesome, and I want to read all the reasons why.

PLEASE NOTE NEW CONTEST DATES.

Enter from now until end of day, October 10th.

I will draw the winners at random and announce them on October 12th.

You don't have to post your email to enter if that sort of thing makes you squicky. When I choose the contest winners, I will figure out a way to get in touch with you via twitter or whatnot. (But you are all winners, you know this yes?) If you already posted your email, well then, thanks. That does make it a little easier for me.

You can enter up to three times.

You can’t enter by tweeting about the contest, but I’d appreciate your helping in spreading the word!

Good luck!

    The last thing I did that I was proud of was probably...*thinks* I probably haven't done anything very notable recently but maybe balancing school, my blog, my YouTube channel, flute, and Chinese school is something I could be proud of if I think of it in a different perspective. :)

    Thanks again!

  12. The last thing I did that I'm proud of was saving the baby girl I babysit for. She went into cardiac arrest while I was watching her, and I managed to perform CPR and bring her back. It definitely helps that I just began training to be an EMT this fall. (: Also, I really loved the first book, so regardless of whether or not I get an ARC, I will definitely be reading Through the Ever Night and obsessing with everyone else.

  14. I was in the line at the post office the other day when a young woman collapsed behind me. I sprang into action and got her flat on the floor and into the recovery position whilst trying to rouse her, ask if anyone was with her etc. Thankfully, she came to and it turns out she has a history of epilepsy (I asked her this). She was fine after that but I'm proud that I took control of a stressful situation and helped her.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win and like the other commenters, I can't wait for the book and will be buying it and reading it regardless :)

    1. I'm proud of myself for learning to listen better to others. Sometimes it's not about how you respond, but just being there for someone.

      I'm also proud of myself for making sure things get done. Small issues/problems can add up and become one big pile of trouble. Taking everything one step at a time has made a lot of big problems look less daunting.

      Again, thank you. :)

  135. The last thing that I did that I'm proud of is that I made an really awesome collage for my Digital Illustration project, and everybody like it and though the message was clear.

  136. The last thing that I did that I'm proud of is just in general starting this semester off well in school. I took a semester off for an internship and was afraid I wasn't going to be able to push myself or fail under the pressure of a challenging full load of classes. But I'm doing great! :)

  138. The last thing I did that I'm pretty proud of is that I gave away a few of my books (including an ARC)to my mom's coworker's niece. Being a passionate bookworm, I want all teens out there to experience the thrill I get from reading and finishing books. So when I heard this girl was interested in reading, but couldn't find any good books and didn't know where to look, I jumped into action and gave her the books along with my blog so she can see what I've been reading. It's a small step, but it's a step forward, nonetheless. Like that saying goes, every thousand mile journey begins with just one step. Plus, it made me feel all good inside.

  146. The last thing I did that I'm proud of is learning how to cook. Cause, dude, COOKING IS HARD. You have to like... do lots of things. I'm lazy and like to sleep and lay in bed reading. Learning how to make actual, edible food without setting the kitchen on fire is like a huge accomplishment for me. I deserve a pat on the back. *laughs*

  148. It would be volunteering at my sons schools as a librarian. The district had to cut all related arts and that included library and my kids love library, they grew up in my house, so it's only natural. It sounds like no big deal, but I have a real phobia of crowds and don't deal well with new situations, so it's a really big thing for me to do this. I love my son and reading is very important in my family, as it should be for all kids, so i'm doing a great thing and getting past a fear at the same time and I'm very proud of that.

  160. The last thing I did that I did that I am proud of is, I went hunting, enjoying the beautiful mountain country on my horse. Providing meat for yourself and your family is a very hard, yet rewarding thing to do. It makes me so much more appreciative of food.

  166. The last thing I did that I’m proud of is quit my job. I had hated it for a really long time. I felt like I was languishing there and they were really mean to me. I am applying to college because my dream is to be a writer. I dropped out of school 8 years ago when I got pregnant with my son. I have always wanted to someday go back and pursue my dreams and get my Bachelor's degree in English. And now it is someday.

  171. The last thing I did that I'm proud of is learned sign language to help my son communicate with his speech delay as a result of cerebelluar hypoplasia. He has a walker too. If only I could teach him to walk on his own. He's talking and signing and keeps proving the doctor's wrong. I'm amazed by how much he overcomes EVERY day. I'm so proud of him, and my other boys, too. I'm so blessed.
