Contest for a book you probably really want!

To enter this contest, you have to create a haiku, or a poem with three lines, 5 syllables, then 7 then 5. Here's an example just in case you have no frakking clue what I'm talking about:

This book is awesome
You know you really want it
Go write your Haiku!

Bam! It's that simple!

 You can write it on anything you like, but I would to see your enthusiasm for this book!
Only one Haiku per person to enter pleaseeee! I don't usually do international contests because shipping is so much but I know a lot of people want this, so international it is!

(If you really can't figure out how to do this, leave a list with your three favorite books, but do at least try and write one first! This is supposed to be fun, and to make you work for it!) =P

How to enter:

1) Become a follower, unless you already are a follower than you rock!
2) Write a Haiku
3) Leave your Haiku, along with a way to contact you (email address) in a comment!

Ends November 17th!
Well what are you crazy kids waiting for, get entering!!

i'm shy!! but I will post a haiku for this book! i don't know the theme for the haiku so I'm sticking with the traditional nature-theme of haikus.

"red dawn and blue sky
burns up the sea
swallowing the darkness beneath."

This contest was too much fun to pass up. Haikus?! Great idea! Even though I followed you on Twitter (@olsonkayla) I don't think I should officially enter. I already have an ARC, and don't want to hoard the awesome. I did want to write a haiku, though, because it sounded fun.

The things I took for granted

Seeneke said...

OK, I love this contest!!! I'm dying to read the book, but as I'm not a good writer, I wrote something easy this time. Here we go:

I'll even come there
If I win the book I want
More than I can say

So, that's it, I know it's childish, but let's just say I love books but I'm no writer...more like a reader. And just so you'll know though I'm a new follower I just LOVE your blog.

This is a great idea, although I don't really write haikus. I have read the entrants' haikus and they are all amzing! Ehem, here's mine:

Girl frozen in time
Now born into existence
Full of mysteries


Thank you! I had so much fun! :D

What a phenomenal idea for a contest: I adore Haikus...writing them can be another thing though!

Here we go then:

Thousands of bright lives,
All frozen in cold statis,
Their fate yet unknown.

Better than nothing I suppose.

Fun contest, and I really, really REALLY want this book, so here goes!

My old life is gone,

Ship and mind confine
Two souls craving to break free
Hope is in the other

Bright lights that seem like the stars
But no - just light bulbs
