Fantasyfest 2011 kickoff with a giveaway!

Hey readers! If you were a follower of our blog last year at this time you probably remember that we hosted a month long event called Fantasyfest that focused on fantasy/paranormal YA fiction. We hosted tons of giveaways, had some author interviews, and some guest posts. That Fantasyfest was in August of last year. Well, this year we decided to push it back to October because we weren't ready for it in August and it's more fitting to have it in October. So... Fantasyfest is now moved to October!

Fantasyfest this year will be a bit different. This year it will be more giveaway-centered and will not feature any guest bloggers due to the fact that we didn't have the time to organize all of those and what not. So this year it will mainly be giveaways, themed reviews, and themed posts by us. The official schedule will be up within the next week. (Still waiting on some prizes to get in so we can be sure of the giveaways we're doing.)

Without further ado... let's have the first giveaway!

Majority of our giveaways this Fantasyfest will have (a) book(s) to giveaway and a swag pack. For our first giveaway we will have two winners. One winner will receive two books and the other will receive a (sort of) mystery swag pack. The swag packs are a sort of mystery because most of them contain the same things, but some will have more swag or special signed swag. We have loads of swag to give away including key chains, signed bookmarks/postcards from Victoria Schwab, Maggie Stiefvater and Tessa Gratton, and a whole lot more. Anyway, let's get to the prizes.

1st place winner will receive:
1 ARC copy of Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
1 ARC copy of Frost by Marianna Baer

When her boyfriend, Danny, is killed in a car accident, Wren can’t imagine living without him. Wild with grief, she uses the untamed powers she’s inherited to bring him back. But the Danny who returns is just a shell of the boy she once loved.

Wren has spent four months keeping Danny hidden, while her life slowly unravels around her. Then Gabriel DeMarnes transfers to her school and somehow, inexplicably, he can sense her secret. Wren finds herself drawn to Gabriel, who is so much more alive than the ghost of the boy she loved. But Wren can’t turn her back on Danny or
the choice she made for him—and she realizes she must find a way to make things right, even if it means breaking her own heart.
Leena Thomas’s senior year at boarding school starts with a cruel shock: Frost House, the cozy Victorian dorm where she and her best friends chose to live, has been assigned an unexpected roommate—confrontational, eccentric Celeste Lazar.

What Celeste lacks in social grace, however, her brother, David, a recent transfer student, makes up for in good looks and charm. But while he and Leena hit it off immediately, Leena finds herself struggling to balance her growing attraction with her fear of getting hurt.

As classes get under way, strange happenings begin to bedevil Frost House—frames mys-teriously falling off walls, doors locking by themselves, furniture toppling over. Celeste blames the housemates, convinced they want to scare her into leaving. And while Leena tries to play peacekeeper between her best friends and new roommate, soon the mysterious happenings in the dorm, an intense triangle between Leena, Celeste, and David, and the reawakening of childhood fears all push Leena to take increasingly desperate measures to feel safe. But does the threat lie with her new roommate, within Leena’s own mind . . . or in Frost House itself?

2nd place winner will receive:
1 mystery swag pack!
