Sunday Giveaway: The Scorpio Races
As promised, my new giveaway is Maggie Stiefvater’s YA novel The Scorpio Races.
I loved The Scorpio Races (read my review here) and I’m happy to share this book with you. Thanks to Scholastic, not just one, not two, but THREE lucky readers get the chance to win a hardcover copy of this awesome book.
To join, here are the mechanics:
1. The giveaway is open to all blog readers with a Philippine mailing address.
2. To enter the raffle, post your answer to this question in the comments section below:
What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
3. Entries will be accepted until Friday, January 20, 2012, 12 midnight, Manila time
4. One raffle entry per email address, per person (in other words one entry per person). I will reply to your entry in the comments section to validate it, and I reserve the right to weed out suspicious entries.
5. Two winners will be chosen based on their answers, and one winner will be drawn from the remaining entries via Random.org. Each winner will win one copy of The Scorpio Races. Screenshot will accompany the announcement of winners.
6. An email will also be sent to the winner to request his or her (Philippine) mailing address. The prize will be packaged securely and sent via a local courier, unless I’ll be seeing the winner anytime soon (e.g. FFP book discussion, FBB meetup, quiz night, geek fight or whatnot).
The giveaway officially opens as soon as this post is up.

I love books and everything to do with them — bookmarks, book plates, reading implements, book-related toys and accessories and other bookish ephemera. I’ve amassed a veritable loot over the holidays, thanks to some very thoughtful people. Here’s the stash: It’s always lovely when people get you things they know you’ll appreciate. And these are…

I knew I’d definitely be reading more of Maggie Stiefvater’s work after The Scorpio Races, which was simply spectacular. I had read her Shiver trilogy earlier, and while I thought her prose was beautiful, I can’t say I’m a fan of the forsake-all-others teen romance (vampire, er, werewolf or no werewolf), so Maggie Stiefvater’s recent…

Life has been a whirlwind since I got back from the AFCC, as preparations for the 2nd Filipino ReaderCon (Filipino ReaderCon) were in full swing. It was all hands on deck for members of the Filipino Book Bloggers group, and it has been great to see volunteers from different book clubs banding together to make…

All weekend, people have been asking me how I found the Hunger Games movie so I decided a blog post was in order for the occasion. I think I’ve been half-excited, half-scared ever since the movie was announced, the way I am whenever a favorite book hits the big screen. Everyone knows I’m not a…

If you’re a Hunger Games fan like I am, you’re probably counting down the days until Hunger Games hits the big screen in two weeks’ time. It’s getting more difficult to tamp down on the excitement, too, as the buzz is spreading like wildfire across the media avenues and social networks. Students in Assumption College,…

Finally, here are the winners of my Scorpio Races giveaway. I apologize for the delay, I know you guys have been waiting for this, but I’ve had a lot to catch up on at work and I’ve resumed my tutoring (5 times a week) after the holidays, so before I knew it, January came, and…

I can’t really say I’m all that fond of horses, although I’ve read my share of horses when I was younger, like Black Beauty and The Summer of the Dancing Horse. I also haven’t had a lot of exposure to equines, other than the requisite carriage rides in Vigan or Old Manila, and long-ago pony…

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I’m greeting you just now, as my sister came home from Singapore for the holidays and we’ve been traipsing (read: eating and shopping) all over the metropolis, before she goes off on assignment in Prague. Anyway, in the next couple of weeks, I’m wrapping up up my 2011 reads — I’m…

Happy Christmas, book lovers! I hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your loved ones. Mine’s especially bookish this year. I didn’t have time to put up a tree (remember last year’s HP Christmas tree?), but a friend (thanks, Carl!) got me an ornament tree so I put it to good use on top of one…
