CONTEST! (CLOSED)

EDIT: Contest is finished now, sorry if you missed the chance to enter. I'll try do another contest soon.

I've decided I want to do a contest now. :]

Thanks to all your feedback on the blog about contests, I've decided that this is going to be a "Pick Your Poison" type contest (thanks Miranda, I like that name for it) where I'll give you a list of prizes (books) and the winner gets to choose which one they want (which I'll have sent from Amazon).

The winner can choose from one of the following books:

1. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
2. Any of John Greens books (this includes Let It Snow and 21 Proms which he has short stories in or just one of his own books; Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns or An Abundance of Katherines)
3. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
6. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
7. Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

Those are all some of my favourite books, so I thought I'd use those for the first contest. :]

How to Enter:

+Leave a comment on this post and also mention whether you're in the US/UK/Canada/Australia etc.

For extra entries (tell me which of these you did in the comment):

+1 entry if you follow this blog/if you're already following.
+1 entry for linking this in the sidebar of your blog.
+1 entry for posting about the contest on your blog.

Contest ends 2 weeks from now (22nd of May?). Anyone can enter, including the other authors of this blog seeing as I'm the only one hosting the contest and the winner will be chosen randomly.

Later.

    So I'm going to say Hunger Games, please. I would've said Looking for Alaska, purely cause that's my favourite book, but its impossible to get it off Amazon right now!
