Complete Iron Fey Series Giveaway

I'm kicking off 2011 with a new giveaway in honor of the release of The Iron Queen, the third book in the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa!  This is also a sort of 200 followers giveaway, because I really have made it!  That's unbelievable to me, because when I started this blog less than three months ago, I would've been ecstatic to have one follower who actually cared about weird little me and my YA obsession.  Thanks so much, guys!

What You Can Win: (click cover for Goodreads page)

One lucky winner will receive the complete Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa.  Giveaway is only open to US & Canada-- sorry to my international followers, but made of money I am so not.

To Enter: Leave a comment summing up your total entries (include links to anywhere you helped to spread the word for extra entries, please).   The last day to enter is January 31st.

Rules and Extra Entries:

1. You must be a follower to enter. (+1 entry automatic)

2. You must have a mailing address in the US or Canada.

3.  +2 extra entries for telling me what kind of faerie or mythological being is your favorite, or what faerie you'd most want to be. (For example, I like the shapeshifting phookas and any of the water demon-types.  Your answer doesn't have to be a faerie from the Iron Fey obviously, and if you're fonder of werejaguars or vampires or boggarts than faeries, then go right ahead.  :)

4.  +3 extra entries for a sidebar link to this giveaway.

5.  +2 for any tweet or facebook post about the giveaway and +5 extra entries for a blog post.

6. +1 extra entry for summing all your entries up.

The winner will be chosen by on February 1st.  This winner will have 48 hours to respond following my notification. (If they don't respond, a new winner will be chosen, you guys know the drill.)  Good luck to everyone!

+2 - it's hard to pick a faerie or mythological being I'd like to be, but I guess I'd pick unicorn - but I'd want to be a were-unicorn. You know the kind that could shift from human to unicorn and back.

I haven't read many fairy books so I wouldn't be able to tell you what type of fairy I'd want to be most. So I'll tell you that my favorite mythological being is a unicorn. They are so magical and pure. Fairies come in second.

@Sniffy Kitty-- Dragons are my favorites, too, but lately I've been hung up on faeries. But no contest-- dragons are among the most awesome creatures. :)

@Kate-- I think Summer Princess would be cool, though apparently chaos and winter prince come hand-in-hand with the job title. (Tho the second part's fine with me.)

@Booklady-- Wereunicorn is a really unique one. And that. Would. Be. Awesome. :)

+2 tweeted to my friends:
+2, probably the mice in the short story "CATNYP" in the Windling and Datlow anthology "The Fairie Reel" - of course, now I'm forgetting their proper name, but the story takes place in the NYPL and the mice scurry around to collect books and bring them to the librarian/reader/reading room. Actually, I like all the magical beings in the NYPL in that story, but I think the mice are just super cute and clever. :) Otherwise, whether I like the creature or not depends upon the story they're in! Everybody writes them differently, you know :)

@Kare-- I'm possibly obsessed with Grim, too! He reminds me of the Cheshire Cat... whose grin I am currently wearing on my t- shirt.

@Tegan-- Yes, witches are the awesomest! When I turned eleven, I'd honestly half-convinced myself that I would get an acceptance letter to Hogwarts via owl. (Yes, I was weird even then.) :)
And you're very welcome, everyone!

I know, I feel left out so I need to fix that. I've heard great things about these books and am hoping to read them and love them as much as everyone else

I've never actually read a book about fairies but i've heard such good things about this series I really want to give it a shot. Have a feeling I like it. Right now I'd say I prefer werewolves to vampires. Too many vampires about these days. But any shapeshifters are awesome. Maybe a metamorphmagus (Tonks)!
