~Giveaway: "Wither" (ARC) by Lauren DeStefano~

  Wither (The Chemical Garden Trilogy #1) by Lauren DeStefano

So I recently reviewed "Wither" by Lauren DeStefano which has been hailed by many as one of the best Dystopian and/or Young Adult novels of this year. I was completely desperate to read this book, and was lucky enough to win an ARC of the novel (Thank you Rachel of Parajunkee Book Blog) - and at the same time, a dear friend (I love you Angela - my Reading Angel!) also sent me a copy of the ARC, so I suddenly had not one but TWO (ARC) copies of an amazing novel! 

And although the novel has debuted, and I dearly encourage you all to buy yourself a copy, I really wanted to giveaway my extra ARC of Wither, so I am hosting this giveaway - ESPECIALLY since the blog has finally hit 100 Followers *Yay*.

  1. Great giveaway! I would pick...Miley Cyrus. Just kidding! Maybe, Emma Roberts?I follow the blog, Andreat78

  2. I follow on GFC as Nikki. The girl on the cover looks a lot like Bethany Joy Galeotti from One Tree Hill, although I don't think she's young enough to pull it off anymore, so I'm not sure.

  3. I've been dying to read this! Hm, from your review I could see either Emma Roberts or even Miley Cyrus--if she could pull off a more serious role.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  4. This is a book I would love to read! I've heard a lot of good things about it. Based on the cover the person who I think could play Rhine is Lyndsy Fonseca. Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    I haven't read Wither yet, but I picture Dakota Fanning or Dianna Agron for the role of Rhine.

  8. I thought about this quite a bit . . . I'm still not 100% sure, but: Elizabeth Olsen or Bridgit Mendler for Rhine

    also, I think I'm following you but Google 'can't handle my request right now' so I'll check again later :)

    Thanks so, so much for this giveaway-I'd love to have a copy of this!!

  9. Now I'm for sure following through GFC

  10. I was thinking Emmy Rossum. Love her!

    Thank you for such a great giveaway.

    GFC is also Ash and I follow via e-mail as well.

  11. Thanks so much for the great giveaway

    I would pick Emma Roberts

  12. Even though it seems like a popular choice. I would have to choose Emma Roberts.

  13. Hmm, I haven't read Wither yet (though I really want to!), but just from reading the review Saorise Ronin comes to mind. Thank you for the giveaway! I am a new GFC follower. :)


  14. I haven't read this yet, but I am eager to! Thanks for the chance!
    And It's funny that so many commenters are saying Emma Roberts, because she's been my go-to character image reading just about everything lately... LOL.

    New follower! (and on Twitter too! @kristincreative)


  15. I haven't read Wither yet *sad face* and so I have no idea what she's suppose to look like, but I think Emily Browning (from Sucker Punch and A Series of Unfortunate Events) would be great playing a dystopian role. She's tough but also feminine.

  16. I haven't read Wither i hope i win. But i think Emma Roberts would do great...she isn't to Girly but she is femine..and her acting in Nancy Drew showed her tough girl side
