Feature and Follow Friday #1 + Chinese New Year Giveaway

It took us forever to decide to join Feature and Follow Friday, so here we are (Yay!) with our Feature and Follow Friday #1!

Feature and Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Find out more by clicking on the links provided.

Question of the Week:
Happy Mardi Gras! If they were throwing the HOTTEST books off of a Mardi Gras float - what would you do to have them throw to you...?

Nicole: I love parties and dressing up so if I find out that they'll be throwing out copies of Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff you can bet I'll be wearing an outfit in neon colors with a sparkly wig dipped in glitters and rainbows and spikes! I'll also be wearing a unicorn circlet so I'm pretty sure people will steer clear of me so they don't get stabbed. 

Michelle: Well, I'm not really a person who likes crowds, but if I find out beforehand that a copy of Jennifer Nielsen's The Runaway King will be thrown off the float, I will make sure to be the flashiest person there. I would seriously roll in feathers, glitters, and sequins if it would mean getting a copy of that!

(We've read each other's response, and weren't surprised that even our answers are quite alike. No wonder people can't tell us apart!)

Hey, you know what? We're Chinese, and we like bad puns (Well, Michelle, mostly.) And so we'll be selecting TWO (2) winners to win paperback copies of Rachel Hartman's Seraphina for Chinese New Year. Just Tweet us all the bad puns you can about Chinese New Year from Feb. 8-11, 2013. Use the hashtag #TTRCNYBadPuns to make your entries count. Go crazy and hit us with your best puns. May the two best bad puns win!

Terms and Conditions:

1. We will use The Book Depository to ship items, so please make sure that they deliver to your country. Any delays / lost packages are out of our hands.

2. Make sure that your Tweets are clean and are not offensive / racist. We cannot emphasize this enough. We'll be very strict with this, and failure to comply will result to disqualification in the duration of the whole contest.

3. Tweet us as many bad puns as you can! There's no limit. 

4. We're strictly adhering to the "No hashtag, no entry." policy.

5. Our decisions are final and will not be changed. In case the winner does not respond in 48 hours, we will be forced to choose another.

Have a blast, you guys! Oh, and we're still giving away a copy of Jay Kristoff's Stormdancer. Click here to join.
