Choose Your Genre Contest


CONTEST IS CLOSED.

For the past month I've been planning and arranging this big giveaway and finally it's here! *insert applause* Sometimes people are picky about what genres to read/not read so I made it easier for you all...a "Choose Your Genre Contest"! Here I have 4 separate prize packs for 4 different winners; each genre pack consists of young adult books (all but one were published this year) and swag that fits that category.

Unfortunately, because of my last huge contest, my wallet is practically empty so this one won't be international; it's for the USA only. You also must be a follower (new or old) of my blog to enter... because I just feel like it. And this giveaway will be open until August 22. I'll post the 4 winners a day or two after.

To enter, just fill out this form!

You can get extra entries by tweeting, linking, and spreading the word about it. Also by leaving a comment on this post about something funny! A joke, a short story, link to a video, picture, or blog post, something that happened to you today - I don't care, just something that made you laugh or smile.

On the form it will ask which genre packs you want to be entered for. Feel free to enter for all four of them, however you can only win one. If someone's name appears twice on the random generator, I'll simply pick another winner.

Alright enough chit-chat; I bet you're wondering, "Ashley, just show me the prizes already!!" Well here's what you can win! :) Many thanks to the authors and publishers that contributed, too.










So to enter just fill out this form.
Good luck everybody and please spread the word. Thanks for following!

CONTEST IS CLOSED.

something funny that happened to me today:
Yesterday I lost one of my rings and was panicking because it was one of my favorite rings that I wear all. the. time. My friend came over and mentioned something about her having a knack for finding things people spend ages looking for. We're sitting in my living room, she leans back against a chair, then looks at me and holds up my ring.
:) I was the happiest person alive.

Something funny I saw today was my cat when he was getting scratched in a particular spot on his back. He started blinking really fast and sticking his tongue out and moving his head like an animatronic puppet! It was crazy-looking, but my cat's not known for his sanity. ^_^

Great contest! Thanks!

If Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner got married, they would both be called Taylor Lautner.

Why should you never bathe around a pokemon? ... He might Pikachu. ;)

Cass said...

Lame joke, but it's as good as I get. :P

My father gave me a really cheap dictionary for my birthday. I couldn't find the words to thank him.

Thanks for the giveaway! I chose Paranormal & Romance pack, though the Romance has both great books & swag, paranormal has an amazing lineup of books.

Kailia Sage said...

Great contest!

Steph said...

A man walks into a bar... "ouch". LoL well thats my joke, however lame it may be it made me laugh!

Tina said...

My neighbors have a four year old grandson who is currently staying with them. I have a 150 pound Alaskan Malamute. Lately, their grandson has decided to imitate my dog by scrambling around on all fours and barking. My massive dog is so terrified of an innocent little kid that he won't go outside during the day anymore. Instead, he comes and finds my brother or me and tries to hide under us, whether we're sitting or standing. It's both amusing, irksome and rather pathetic.

Funniest video ever! I love SNL, so it was hard to choose. This one is a classic! I can watch it over and over again! :)

Jessy said...

I thought this joke was pretty funny!
The three bears had been having some trouble recently and had ended up in family court. Mama and Papa bear were splitting up, and baby bear had to decide who he was going to live with.

So, the judge wanted to talk to baby bear to see what he thought about living with either of his parents. When he asked baby bear about living with his father, baby bear said "No, I can't live with Papa bear, he beats me terribly."

"OK," said the judge, "then you want to live with your mother, right?"

"No way!" replied baby bear, "She beats me worse than Papa bear does."

The judge was a bit confused by this, and didn't quite know what to do. "Well, you have to live with someone, so is there any relatives you would like to stay with?" asked the judge.

"Yes," answered baby bear, "my aunt Bertha bear who lives in Chicago."

"You're sure she will treat you well and won't beat you?" asked the judge.

"Oh definitely," said baby bear, "the Chicago Bears don't beat anybody."

My AG teacher in high school would always strike a karate pose and say, "I know karate, Judo, and 3 other Japanese words" ....dumb I know but the first time you heard it, it wasn't as bad as the millions of other times ;P

KMichelleC87 said...

My funny thing is something my 4 year old son says. When he is out playing and get sweaty he says "I'm sweating balls!" We think it came from when we would say he is a ball of sweat. Lol!

Aik said...

Here are some jokes:

TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America ..
MARIA: Here it is.
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America ?
CLASS: Me.

TEACHER: Millie, give me a sentence starting with " I "
MILLIE: I is..
TEACHER: No, Millie..... Always say, 'I am.'
MILLIE: All right ... "I am the ninth letter of the alphabet."

I heard a funny comment yesterday by a celebrity:

"I'm not offended by dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb. But then again I also know I'm not really blonde!" ~Dolly Parton

Jill of The O.W.L. said...

Ok I have a really really bad joke but it makes me giggle:

Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? It was dead.

Sad I know!

Jessica Secret said...

Why can't Hellen Keller drive? Cause she's DEAD.

I always laugh when my boyfriend stares at me for laughing at the book I'm reading. He always asks me why I'm laughing and I tell him that it's funny. He just looks at me like I'm crazy.

This is the best AutoTune-TheNews video ever. It's from a real newscast of course and the original is funny, too. But this is just genius.
Of course, it's not funny that the event actually took place, but the way the people talk, yeah it's hilarious.

Atypical Girl said...

Well...the sound of babies laughing makes me laugh. Seriously funny stuff. :)

Okay, i'm not a very funny person but i have a story for u thats a little embarrassing. Ok so i'm a flirt and love mediaval times now so when a really cute guy opened a door for me i had to say "thank you, good sir" but what i actually said was "thank you, good sore. Oops wonder why you got called sore? Slam! JK" so i walked away really quikly with friends in tow and because i love boots and high heels and can't run with out falling i of course fell down five feet away from the guy.
Funny? idk.
But when i turned around the guy was laughing.

Thanks for the giveaway! I am a new follower, and I LOVE your blog :)

Here's a cheesy joke that made me smile:

People from New York are called New Yorkers. Are people from Hamburg called Hamburgers?

Rowena said...

Hmm, let me think of something funny.

My 13 year old niece is retelling a story and she ends her story with, "It was so crazy, it's not even funny" and my 11 year old niece replies, "Haha, now it is."

That made me laugh so much.

Michelle said...

Here's my silly little joke:

How do you catch a unique rabbit?
Younique up on it. (say it phonetically)

How do you catch a tame rabbit?
Tame way.

ha!

Nicole said...

That paranormal pack looks awesome!! Love paranormal covers these days, they are rocking hard core!!

Kylie said...

Like Nicole said, I LOVE paranormal covers. However, some of the ideas seem slightly overdone. But I love historical fiction and how you can put an intriguing spin on the same stuff you see in your history textbook. I'm all for the historical fiction!

Sophia Lee said...

I read this on someone's Fanfic profile and thought it was hilarious:

"Apparently, every one in five people is Chinese. There are five people in my family so one of them must be Chinese. Either it's my mom or my dad, my older brother Collin, or my other brother Ho-Chan-Chu... I think it's Collin."

areli said...
