  1. I couldn't come up with anything great, I only have three books lying around:

    The Children of Hurin Deeper, Woe is I!

    Picture's here

  2. Awaken The Pleasure Palace Before Midnight, Crazy Nefertiti.

    My picture is comprised of an IMM post because my computer crashed/died/burned on me today, as did my ability to upload new pics. My mums laptop is a pain to edit on.

    Here is the post:

    The Sky is Everywhere If We Kiss (I love this!!!!!)

    Before I Fall In a Heartbeat

  3. I'm pretty darn proud of how clever my sentence turned out:

    Being polite to Hitler, Nigella bites Dracula in love. Check out the picture and post here.

    Nightshade would be my book of choice and I honestly have no preference on the swag. It all looks cool.

  4. Here is the link to mine.

    Darkness calls the queen of death at the gates of darkness.

    I cant upload my picture so I used pics for BN

  5. We posted 3 on your Facebook page:
    1.Strangely Enough Bran Hambric Sabotaged The Unfinished Angel
    2. What If The Mysterious Benedict Society Found The Shadow of Thieves Beyond The Valley of Thorns
    3. Spilling Ink Ruined The Jaguar Stones MiddleWorld

    Thanks for the fun! Nightshade would be our choice!
    -teacher6th and class

  6. My sentence is The Unidentified Grace Dust City, and I'll be emailing the picture since the lighting is terrible. Should I win, I would like Nightshade and probably bookmarks (especially the signed Body Finder) for swag.

  7. Here's mine:

    Never Let Me Go Before I Fall Beautiful Creatures.

    I would like to win Nightshade.

    Thank you. justaiv09(at)gmail(dot)com

  8. Oops... the link doesn't show.

    Try this one,

  9. Here is mine:

    "Darling Jim, For the love of Pete, dust the tower, the zoo and the tortoise!"

    I would like Nightshade!

  10. This was so much fun!!! I did two, but I could have spent all day trying to do this!!!!

    My sentences:
    1. Daddy Long-Legs, who gets the drumstick? Jane and the damned Mr. Roberts burned the dark half.

    2. My Fair Lady, let's elope on the beach.

    As for the books--It's hard to choose!!!--They all sound fantastic, I'd love any of them!!! But Nightshade might be my top pick, just because of the cover.

    I think the 3 pieces of swag I would want the most would be a Claire de Lune sticker
    A signed Tension of Opposites bookmark
    An Iron Fey Flyer

    Thanks again for the fun challenge!!!!

  11. Woops, I forgot to put my email and the book I want.
    If I win I would like Prophecy of Days.
