Giveaway! The Host by Stephanie Meyer

Yep it's me again... for the fourth day in a row! And as if that wasn't exciting enough... this post is a GIVEAWAY (Insert game show music here) !!!!

And what do you have the pleasure of winning today? A book my little bookworms... and a good book at that.

The Host: A Novel

Our book club read The Host by Stephanie Meyers a couple of months ago, and we loved it! It's unlike anything you've ever read, and it blew my mind how different it was from the Twilight series. To read more about what I thought, you can see my post about The Host here.

The host is imaginative, there's a love story, and the story-telling is great... it's an easy read-- just in time for summer! What more can you want?

Obviously I really liked the book, which is why I was so excited when Hachette asked me if I wanted to do a giveaway in conjunction with the paperback release. YES PLEASE!

So here's the deal. I have one copy to giveaway (list price $16.99) and it includes a bonus chapter. There's three ways to win... (and you can do all three to increase your chances!)

Option 1: Leave a comment. Topic ideas: your favorite author, how much you love me, your favorite book, which team you are on (Jacob vs Edward,) etc. Really the possibilities are endless. Just leave a comment.

Option 2: Tweet about the contest. Be sure to include my Twitter handle (@Laurealism) and the link to this post ( Then come back and leave a comment to let me know you tweeted. So if you also did Option 1, you would have left two comments at this point.

Option 3: Mention the contest or Laurealism in a blog post. THIS IS WORTH TWO ENTRIES. I don't care if you throw it on to the end of a blog post as a sort of "P.S." Just make sure you link back to this post. Then come back and leave two more comments!

So, you could possibly be leaving 4 comments in all! This contest will end July 1st, at which point I'll generate a random number to see which commenter wins. Good luck!



  1. Uh - Oh the random generator doesn't normally choose #1!

    I'm interested in this book because I like science fiction AND Stephenie Meyer. I loved the Twilight series so much that I read it 3 times. I realize that "The Host" has nothing to do with vampires, but it sounds like an intriguing book with interesting characters and I'm sure that I would enjoy reading it very much.

    Thank you for the chance!

  3. Hi Lauren! You already know this, but I LOVE you and I LOVE your blog! I have so much fun reading about all of the fun things you're doing! I am also so excited about this giveaway because The Host has been on my list of books to read ever since we read it for Book Club! Since I wasn't able to make out meeting that month, I never got around to reading the book. I love a good love story, and now that summer is here I need a good book to fill some of my lazy pool days! :) I am always looking for a new good read, and I think this is the perfect book!


  4. Hi Lauren! I just finished this book and LOVED it as well! Great choice :) Miss you!
