Contest Time-End of Summer!

My library's summer reading program ended over the weekend, so to me, summer is winding down very quickly. Plus, next week I'm heading off to a four day institute for my second semester of grad school. (It's really weird going back to school again-luckily after next week my classes are all online!) So what better way to celebrate than with a contest-here's what's up for grabs:
Dreams of the Dead by Thomas Randall (ARC Copy)
-Sorry, U.S. addresses only
-Contest ends September 4, 2009
To enter:
-Leave a comment on this post telling me which Fall release you're looking forward to
Extra Entries:
+1 if you're a follower/become a follower
+3 if you blog/twitter/spread the word
+5 if you check out my husband's blog and start following-he's annoyed I get all the attention :)
Good luck!!!

  12. The Fall release that I am most stocked about is Catching Fire. I was supposed to get an ARC, but alas it hasn't arrived yet, so I have gone ahead and preordered the book and can't wait till it arrives.

  13. Great giveaway, Sarah!

    Hmm... I guess a December release doesn't really count as fall, eh? Because I'm really looking forward to Carolyn Mackler's new book TANGLED, which comes out Dec. 29.


    But for fall... hmm. Actually, I've really been looking forward to CANDOR because I've read some great reviews!

  22. Oh dear, how to decide? Catching Fire (of course), Leviathan, and ArchEnemy (the third book in Frank Beddor's Looking Glass Wars trilogy). Of course, there are probably a ton more I've forgotten, like--oh! Front and Center by Catherine Gilbert Murdock. Gotta love my favorite authors.
