Month of the Fallen Angels: Comment Giveaway!

I realized this past month and a half that I was blowing through all these books, and surprisingly, a lot were angel books. I was already going to have a giveaway for my extra copy of A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young, but I'm going to make it more interesting because I have some pretty awesome swag to throw in. Also, February is in full swing and angels are usually a big part of it. And I recently reached 200 followers, so this is somewhat of a 200 followers giveaway. Oh, and my 21st birthday was on the 12th of last month, so this is my way of showing love... for myself... right, scratch that. Onto the giveaway!

So, what can you win, and more importantly, HOW can you win? Here's the deets:

Winner of the 1st prize gets...

A SIGNED ARC of Hallowed by Cynthia Hand. You can find my review of this amazing sequel here and a personal interview with the author here! The only catch is that whoever wins will have to wait for it until one or two days after April 12th, which is the day of the signing with Cynthia and 3 other awesome authors (check out my events page for those deets). 

And as a special bonus, I'm adding...

A hardcover copy of A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young! Despite how few pages this book has, I instantly fell in love! It's one of the better angel books I've read. If you haven't read this, you need to. Check out my review of it here. *If you win the 1st prize, you will have to wait until after April 12th to receive this book as well.* Believe me, it's worth the wait!

Winner of the 2nd prize gets...

Angel swag! But this isn't just any angel swag.

From left to right: Awesome Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton bookmarks (characters are Ellie, Will, and Caden), A Need So Beautiful bookmark, temporary eye tattoos (as seen in Daughter of Smoke and Bone), and a SIGNED chapter sampler of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Don't believe me that it's signed? *psst, look below*

Yup, that's Laini Taylor's lovely signature. And it can be yours. But how?

Basically fill out the form that I will provide below. There are a lot of great ways to get extra points, but first, check out my giveaways/policy tab at the top of the blog and make sure you understand those rules. This contest is US ONLY! Sorry international followers, when I have more funds, I will do my best to have international giveaways. *hugs*

In total that's 67 points (math is not my strong suit so double-check if you want and let me know if there are any mistakes), and there will be a slot on the form to put in your overall points. There's a billion ways for you to earn major points in this giveaway, so get cracking! This giveaway will last until April 12th at midnight (Western time zone). I may push back the date if there aren't enough entries. Good luck! Oh, right, you kind of need this (open up in new page/tab so that you can copy and paste anything you need from this post):
