Win A Copy Of The Host by Stephanie Meyer Thanks To Mammoth NYC!

You might know Stephanie Meyer from that obscure book she wrote called Twilight? Have you heard of it?  I bet you have.

She ALSO wrote a book called The Host which will be coming to the big screen in March of 2013 which is also well loved and some would consider infinitely better than her sparkly vampires series. You can check it out for yourself since Mammoth NYC has been so generous to allow us to offer FIVE of our readers the chance to win a copy! It would make a great summer read!

 Official Synopsis: THE HOST is an enchanting and fateful story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world is invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over, while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.

Additional Info:


- 1 copy of The Host by Stephanie Meyer for 5 lucky readers
- Must have a US mailing address
- The giveaway prizes will be sent by Mammoth NYC

  17. The Host is very good (more than Twilight series!!!).

    I just finished reading "Thirteen reasons why" by Jay Asher, it's pretty shocking but really good.

  18. Looks and sounds more interesting than that 'obscure' book she wrote. Thanks for the recommendation.

  19. I haven't read The Host yet, mostly because of Twilight. But with the movie coming out, I've been hearing a lot about it. And almost everyone says it's better than Twilight. So I'm looking forward to reading it.
    A book I'd recommend for summer reading is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.

  20. I've been really wanting to read The Host. Everyone says it's better than Twilight!

  21. I really want to read The Host as well--I'd like to see what else Stephanie Meyer has to offer!
    I just finished reading The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd and it's definitely a wonderful summer read. Great characters, storyline and message--a perfect package :).

  26. Mmmm, I ate the Twilight books right up like candy and would love another fun book to devour. The Host, here I come! (Hopefully)
