A Raptoriffic Giveaway

As you know, we have reached 100 followers a couple of nights ago and we thought the best way to celebrate would be to hold our first ever giveaway!

We decided to make it more creative - and more random - than the usual contest by adding one special rule in order to enter:

Make up a dinosaur name for yourself. (Pokemon-centric names are acceptable, too.)

Now, we know it may sound hard (or not) but we've managed to create one for ourselves.

Say hello to Justineamore and Steffinax! And to our friend, Ramosaurus (who has been helping us with the contest and the adorable picture above)!

Don't be afraid to get your imaginative juices flowing! Because we'll add 3 extra entries to our top 3 faves and share them in the end.

The following list is compiled of books that are up for prizes:

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
Before I Die by Jenny Downham
Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers
Devoured by Amanda Marrone
Far From You by Lisa Schroeder
I Know It's Over by C.K. Kelly Martin
I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
Impossible by Nancy Werlin
Keeping You A Secret by Julie Anne Peters
L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad
Lovestruck Summer by Melissa Walker
Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Stupid Cupid by Rhonda Stapleton
Such A Pretty Girl by Laura Wiess
Take Me There by Susane Colasanti
How To Be Bad by E. Lockhart, Lauren Myracle, and Sarah Mlynowski (added)
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder (added)
Light Beneath Ferns by Anne Spollen (added)
Generation Dead by Daniel Waters (added)

There will certainly be one winner who will win a chance to choose one of the many books above and one of the two pairs of Swarovski butterfly earrings (click here to take a look) provided by Justine's mom at Little Presentz.
EDIT: Because we have reached 150 followers, there will be two winners in total. :)

You're probably thinking, "Butterfly earrings? In a dinosaur contest?" Well, shoo those confused thoughts away! Because Ramosaurus took the time to elaborate...

Back in the Mesozoic era, all dinosaurs shared one common source of nutrition: the butterflies. Of course, they were not like the butterflies we know today. The Mesozoic butterfly was approximately 12 times larger than the average butterfly of the 21st century. They were highly nutritious and had that extra crunch to their tough exoskeleton which the dinosaurs enjoyed.

They're very special, indeed.

Anyway. If we ever reach 150 followers by the end of this contest, the number of chances to win will be upped by one. That new winner will get to choose one of the books above. Then when we get to 200 followers, there will be another winner, who will also get to choose one book, and there will be 3 winners in total. It may or may not stop there...

The contest will end on February 19th, 2010 and the winner(s) will be announced the next day. We'll be picking the name(s) out of a hat, just because this is our first giveaway and we like to add a bit of excitement.
