Contest: Win Catching Fire and Swag!


I know we're all very excited about the release of Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games, and now to make the release even sweeter, I'm hosting a contest, giving you a chance to win a copy of the book and some neat swag!

Three lucky winners will receive:

  • *very* limited edition promotional T-shirt (only 300 made!)
  • collectible gold mocking jay pin
  • copy of Catching Fire
Want to know more about The Hunger Games?

COULD YOU SURVIVE ON YOUR OWN, IN THE WILD, WITH EVERYONE FIGHTING AGAINST YOU?

Twenty- four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

You can also go here to read my review of Catching Fire, or click here to go to the official website (where you can read the first chapter of Catching Fire!). And be sure to check out this awesome, awesome book trailer as well:






All right, so to enter to win, all you have to do is leave me a comment below! Simple as that. I'm going to let this contest run until the end of the month, September 30th, and will notify winners on or around October 1st!

The Fine Print:

The Catching Fire book promotion is open to participants with a United States mailing address only (international readers can enter if you have a friend in the States who can accept your prizes by mail!). Entrants under age 13 must have parent or guardian permission to enter.


Oh, and if you want some more Catching Fire fun, be sure to check out my blog post about the day I met Suzanne, the video I participated in with Suzanne, and my review!

All set? Let the games begin!
