GIVEAWAY: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Now that you've read my review of If I Stay by Gayle Forman, here's your chance to win a hardback copy of the book for yourself! Just to remind you...

'Just listen,' Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen. 'Stay,' he says. Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you. For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope. But life can change in an instant. A cold February morning ...a snowy road ...and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.

Gripping, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming, "If I Stay" will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you've lost - and all that might be.

The Rules:

For one entry, leave me a comment with your email address. (I'd love to hear about the hardest choice you've made recently, but no pressure!)

For an extra entry, follow this blog or subscribe to it's feed and leave another comment to let me know that you've done that.

For a third entry, tweet or blog about this giveaway.

This giveaway is open internationally! You have until the 14th of July!

Good luck!

    I haven't made any really hard decisions recently, but it did take me quite a long time to decide not to take my little boy to nursery this morning. There is a chance he has chicken pox, but I really wanted a morning to myself. In the end he stayed at home with me, but I still don't know if he has it and it may have been for nothing!

  11. I'm already subscribed to this feed!

    I haven't made any hard choices recently. Though at the end of this month I have to choose some very important courses, that might have a big impact to my studies.

  14. This sounds like a great read. Please count me in! :)

    Well, the most recent hardest decision I made would have to be picking the right research topic for one of my classes (though that's kind of hard in a totally different way from what I think you meant. LOL.)


  15. linked this on my sidebar. :)

  16. I've become a follower and would love to win this book. It sounds like a beautiful story.

    The hardest decision, to take my sons to see my Dad (their Grandfather) after he died at the funeral home. They were only 8 and 11 at the time but everyone else saw him the night he died unexpectedly so they needed closure. It was the hardest thing I ever did as I had never seen someone who'd died before. My Dad was only 61 so it was a shock to us all.



HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
