Winners of the Stephenie Meyer/The Host giveaway!!!

Wow! I knew that Stephenie Meyer was popular, but I just didn’t realize how popular. At 6919 entries, “The Host” is easily the most popular giveaway I’ve had on the website, and if it’s any indication, then Stephenie’s new book is going to be a runaway success :) So congratulations to Karen Gonyea (New York), Christy Dorrity (Utah), Elli Kewley (Michigan), Lindsay Clanton (Colorado) and Amanda Simancas (New York) who were all randomly selected to win a COPY of Stephenie Meyer’s new book “The Host” thanks to Hachette Book Group USA!!!

Remember, “The Host” comes out TODAY, so be sure to pick up your copy! Also, IGN has premiered the trailer for the movie adaptation of Stephenie’s wildly popular book “TwilightHERE. I haven’t read the series myself, but the trailer looks good even if it is short :) Anyway, the film stars Kristen Stewart (Jumper, The Messengers, Panic Room) and Robert Pattinson (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and will be released December 12, 2008. For more information, visit the Official Twilight the Movie Website.

On a related note, I’ve been meme’d by Kimberly from
Darque Reviews :) Normally I don’t do memes, but since this one is book-related, I decided what the heck. Basically, I’m supposed to 1) Pick up the nearest book. 2) Open to page 123. 3) Find the fifth sentence. And 4) Post the next three sentences. Since the nearest book is the one I’m currently reading, which just happens to be “The Host”, I thought the meme was fitting:

“Hold it, Kyle.” Jeb’s word were slow, almost casual, but the big man stopped. He grimaced and turned to face Melanie’s uncle.

Okay, I know it’s not much, but there you have it :) Unfortunately, I won’t be tagging anyone. Btw, I’m turning THIRTY today! Man, I’m getting old…
