A while back, Sarah Rees Brennan made a post about book covers wherein she made up a Summary of Lies (with an inkling of the truth sprinkled in) for the books she wished to discuss. I loved these lying summaries and I thought it'd be a lot of fun to use this idea for a giveaway! Basically the idea is that I host a contest for a book, write up a lying summary, and the winner is chosen based on who can tell me which part of the summary is true, either by whoever answers first or I do a draw of all the ones who got the right answer.
Let's use one of Brennan's lying summaries as an example:
What do you do when your girlfriend Katherine leaves you? Well, you could go on a heartwarming road trip with your best friend and learn a little about love and life, OR you could clone Katherine a thousand times, in order to make a clone army and TAKE OVER THE WORLD. Nothing says 'I'm over you, baby' like being God King of the Universe.
This one is fairly obvious on which part of the summary was true (HINT HINT answer is in bold), but I thought it was the simplest example to use in order to illustrate how this contest is going to work. So, assuming I use this summary above, all you have to do to be eligible to win is quote the true statement, leave your comment with the answer and your email (they will all be screened so no one should see the answer) and then I draw lots on the people who got the answer right and the winner gets a prize!
HOWEVER, one problem: I'm having a hard time deciding what prizes to give out. Also, I don't know what kind of books y'all would be interested in me doing lying summaries of. So, I'd be really grateful if you'd fill out these polls. ALSO, if you want advanced dibs on this contest I'll be hosting in the future, leave a comment after filling out the polls with your username and a link to this page and I'll give you an extra point on the first contest I host. =D Point form version below, to make this easy on the eyes~
