Giveaway: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

9.10.2011
So. I have this book. I read it, it was good, but I know I won't read it again because the subject irritates me. (Polygamous wives. It was kind of disgusting in my mind.) But the book is amazing, the characters are amazing, the plot is amazing, it's very original, and yes, I lost the receipt, so I have no hope of returning it. :P (Which makes me sad. I spent $19 on it.)

And so, I thought to myself, I might as well give it away to someone. And just hope people want it? :D

Wither by Lauren DeStefano

What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limited time she has left.

Use THIS form to enter. Giveaway ends on September 25th. The winner will be chosen with Random.org, just because I really seem to like that site. 

*Please note:
-This is for the US only. 
-You must be older than 13, because, for one thing, if you're not, you probably shouldn't read this, and for another, I can't take the address of someone who's younger than that O_o
-You must be a GFC follower of this blog.
