Giveaway: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Remember how I told you how sometimes I am obsessed with authors who I’ve never read?

Confession: Maggie Steifvater is totally one of those authors. I own all her books, have met her, stalk her on Twitter and think she is just truly fantastic. But I’VE NEVER READ A SINGLE BOOK OF HERS!!

That is..until two days ago…when I started The Scorpio Races — her newest novel! And it is fantastic so far!

Anyways, thanks to Big Honcho Media and Scholastic I have:

TWO copies of The Scorpio Races to give away to my readers!!

Read the terms & conditions below! ALSO, I’m trying Rafflecopter for the first time EVER. It is really easy for me so far but I do want to be sure that my readers find it to work out well. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Oh and check out the book trailer. I am obsessed with stopmotion and what is even more impressive is that Maggie did it by herself…increasing my fangirl crush:

Check out Maggie’s site and the This is Teen site from Scholastic:

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.

    I am like that with a few! Victoria Schwab, Maggie Steifvater, Tahereh Mafi. Recently read a couple of books of authors that I have loved on Twitter for a while. Getting there!!! 🙂

  2. I don't think I've ever loved an author when I haven't read their books before. As for rafflecopter as a blogger & as a reader I love rafflecopter. It makes things so much easier.

  3. Lisa — YAY! Me too! I'm trying to work on that too!!

    Ren — Thanks for you input about Rafflecopter! I really want to find what is the best option for both myself and my readers!

  4. Amanda @ On a Book Bender says:

    Definitely Tahereh Mafi, and my latest love has been Maureen Johnson. I don't own any of their books, but I love them and want to.

  5. A. Knight says:

    I just, I don't know, I just don't think this is something I would like to read. Maybe I'm judging it to much at first glance. But it doesn't like it would be for me… #unsure

  7. I just finished this the other day – LOVED IT! So much.

  8. I can't think of an author I love who I haven't read, but there are a few authors that I list as favorites and rave about all the time even though I've only read one book by them: Ayn Rand (The Fountainhead), Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca), Italo Calvino (If On a Winter's Night a Traveler) ect.

    Haruki Murakami and John Irving used to be on the list too, but I finally read a second book by them last year 🙂

    Oh, but in high school I really loved James Joyce though I hadn't read anything by him. I finally read A Portrait of An Artist last year and read excerpts of Ulysses and didn't really care for either. I was quite upset over losing a favorite author 🙁

  9. Girl. GIRL. Are you for serious right now? Oh, Jamie. We need to fix this situation.

  10. I can't think of anyone. The rafflecopter is great! Its really easy to use. Thanks for the chance to win! I love Maggie. I read the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and loved them 🙂

  11. I am obsessed with Lauren Oliver..but I have never read any of her books

  12. Sara (of the Page Sage) says:

    I've never read one of her books either, but the Scorpio Races looks great! I liked Shakespeare before I read anything by him, but I think that's just because I felt I was obligated to like him… now I honestly do!! (:

  13. I've never loved an author whose books I haven't read. Honestly, I don't even keep up on authors that much, which is pretty bad of me. T_T

  14. Rie Conley says:

    I'm like that about Jackson Pearce and now I'm scared if I read a book I'll be disappointed. Thanks for the giveaway.

  15. I love Libba Bray but haven't read any of her books, even though I have almost all of them. It's sort of embarrassing, haha.

    And I totally didn't even realize Maggie did her own art for the trailer. I love this trailer so much and that she did the sketches herself makes it a thousand times cooler.

  16. The Lovely Getaway says:

    I havent got around to testing out the famous Rafflecopter, but a lot of bloggers seem to like it. Personally, I'm more of a googles Doc girl 😀 haha! Either way, thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  17. Malvina Beatrice says:

    Yes with Kendare Blake..I'm yet to read her books.
    Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

  18. Amie McCracken says:

    I just bought this book…like last night. I love her writing (and kind of hate how talented she is in so many areas, I'm jealous). So I won't enter since I own it, but I am enjoying it so far.

  19. Jenelle R. says:

    Hmm… Tahereh Mafi, yes, Maggie, and that Poison Diaries author (I forgot her name. M Wood something…. *hangs head in shame*) and…. A lot. Basically those authors whose books are on my TBR pile 😛

  20. Thank you so much for this giveaway! I hope I win:)

  21. Of course! Especially those new authors that are so friendly while promoting their books that aren't out yet. Kiki Hamilton for instance. Love her!

  22. Jessica ( frellathon ) says:

    Oh I'm eager to read this one. Looks so good.

  23. Not really. I've read all the authors I've met/love/bought books of/whatever.

  24. Unlike you, I've read everything by Maggie! lol. I love her literary writing, and I have been so excited for this book! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  25. Oh, whoops… I accidentally entered both times for the blog post one, and then for the one where you did not do a comment. Sorry! It's 6:00 AM and I have not gone to sleep yet. I did not mean to enter an extra time. I'm not dishonest. 🙂

  26. Tiffany Drew says:

    Guilty! I was obsessed with Emily Giffin before I read any of her books. I finally read them all this year though, hooray!

  27. Lori M. Lee says:

    For a while, I loved Sarah Rees Brennan without having read her first book (it wasn't out yet) because her blog posts were HILARIOUS. Then, when I did read her book, I loved her even more! 😀

  28. I was very interested in Richelle Mead. I have now read the first Vampire Academy book, and I think my interest was a good thing! Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. jpetroroy says:

    I have read so many great reviews of this! Until a few months ago, I had never read John Green.

  30. Hmm, I don't think there is! I usually get drawn in by the books – and then I end up stalking the authors, haha 🙂

  31. Angiegirl says:

    SUCH a gorgeous book.

  32. Surprisingly, I don't think I've ever done that (be "that" I mean be totally in love with an author before reading their books). I've seen a bunch of reviews of this book, but haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

  33. Jessica Secret says:

    I loooove Maggie Stiefvater. Thanks for the opportunity!

  34. lisa [the nerd] says:

    thanks for the giveaway! you = the best evahhh

  35. Emily @ Books and Threads says:

    I wasn't a big fan of the Shiver trilogy, but man, I'm excited about Scorpio Races! What a great giveaway!

  36. I'm with you about Maggie. I've never read the Shiver trilogy, but somehow I love it…

  37. Lynne Perednia says:

    This is how I feel about both this author and Sharon Flake — my students love their work so I think they're fab.

  38. Ashley G. says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! BTW I like the rafflecopter. It's easy to fill out. Thanks again!

  39. pointy star says:

    I started reading The Scorpio Races yesterday, and it's so good! Unfortunately, the book is from my library, and it's almost the due date, so I would love to have my own copy if I could win. 🙂

    Thanks for having such an awesome giveaway!

  40. Tahereh Mafi! I can't wait to read Shatter me!
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  41. I have so many books in my TBR pile, it's crazy. But I've net so many of the authors and think they're great -like James Dashner, Kristen Landon, Matthew Kirby, Lisa Mangum, and more.

  42. I've never met any of the authors even though i've wanted to but i def have way too many books on my tbr list. Series galore but not enough time to read them all.

  43. Anonymous says:

    I really like Lenore Appelhans because of her blog Presenting Lenore. I plan on reading her novel when it debuts in Fall 2012.

    I also like Lo & Christina of the Swoontini blog. They just signed with an agent and have a completed MS on sub to publishers. I'll look for their debut novel in a few years.

    I may or may not eventually adore John Green. His blog's great but I haven't read his books yet, so I don't KNOW if I love his writing yet.

    (commenting as Justine)

  44. I've never been a fan of an author without reading them. I have done this with an anime series once though. I love the character and was obsessed with getting every episode even though I had 100 before I watched one. I loved it though.

  45. Persephone says:

    I have been a fan of the author who wrote the Gossip Girl series, even though I have never read her work and have relied solely on the TV series. Her name never sticks me with, I should feel bad.

  46. I'm a huge fan of Rachel Hawkins & Maureen Johnson even though I haven't read any of their books yet 😀

  47. Bookish in a Box says:

    I don't think I've ever really gone crazy over an author I've never read; the closest I've come is with Bree Despain after I saw the cover of The Dark Divine (which, as it turned out, I loved!).

  48. Yes! 🙂 I think that I like Alexander McCall Smith, but I think I've never read his books (although I do own a few). (OK, I did read Dream Angus, but it's a very short book and not a part of his more popular series).

    thanks for the giveaway!
