The Silver Lining | Contest time! Win an ARC of MATCHED by Ally Condie!

Back in May, I went to BEA and picked up a copy of MATCHED, which I immediately devoured. I sent it to Chandler Craig when I was done and she also devoured it. So we’ve decided to hold a joint contest to pay that ARC forward into the world.

How it works:

When? January 17-January 24
What? Matched Contest
Where? The combined blogs of Shana Silver and Chandler Craig
How? All you have to do is pick a "Girl" from Chandler’s list and a "Boy" from the Shana’s list and tell us why the two characters should be matched for life. Leave your message in the comments and we’ll pick on January 25th.

1st Place: Choice of 3 books
2nd Place: Choice of 2 books
3rd Place: 1 book

1st place winner will choose first, then the 2nd place winner will choose from the remaining books, and 3rd place will get whichever is left.

Prizes available:

  • ARC of MATCHED by Ally Condie
  • ARC of THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger
  • ARC of NIGHTSHADE by Andrea Cremer
  • Signed finished copy of LOSING FAITH by Denise Jaden
  • Copy of CHOSEN by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast 

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one… until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow — between perfection and passion.

  1. Bella from Twilight and Scrooge. He’s a controlling miser and apparently Bella likes to be submissive. She took care of her father and would have no problem serving good old Ebenezer. Plus, she’s used to cold men so Eb’s cold shoulder wouldn’t bother her. A perfect match.

    Besides, Scrooge’s fiance, Belle, left him so replacing her with Bella whose name is only one letter away seems appropriate. =D

  2. Thanks so much for the contest! How awesome!

    I match Voldemort and Bella from Twilight because Bella can love any kind of monster if he has the right heart. Who knows? Does Voldemort have heart??? LOL

    Thanks again for the contest! I can’t wait to read Matched, but Nightshade was so good that for some reason having a second copy would be just as awesome! Haha

    I’ve tweeted for you!
