Reader Contest Begins! Win A Copy of The Host by Stephenie Meyer

My first reader contest and trust me, it will not be my last. I am excited to be able to provide my fellow readers with the opportunity to win a copy of Stephenie Meyer’s latest, bestselling novel, The Host, which released on May 6, 2008 by Little, Brown. The publisher has provided me with three copies (3) of the completed novel to give away to readers. The HOST is #1 on the Publishers Weekly’s Bestseller’s List* as well as #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List*. The synopsis of the story is below and an excerpt is provided for you here.


Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time

If you’re interested in winning a copy of The Host by Stephenie Meyer, please leave a comment below. The contest will end Tuesday, May 27th at 12 am CST. No exceptions. I will randomly draw three (3) names from the comments to this post. The contest is limited to US residents only. I apologize to International readers. I will make it up to you. Good luck!

Also, huge thanks to the publisher, Little, Brown, for providing the copies for this reader contest. Much appreciated.

*Posted sales dates are May 19 and May 22 respectively

update: contest closed on May 27th. Thanks for dropping by and hope you will visit again.

  17. Christy Foster says:

    OMG! I love Stephenie’s Twilight Series! It was the first series of that genre I read and now I am a total maniac (have read 79 books this year! Woo hoo!). I am also not-so-patiently awaiting the Twilght movie. My hubby knows that tickets for Christmas are imperative or he will be on a first name basis with the couch! *grins*
    Haven’t had a chance to read The Host yet, but it has to be amazing!

  18. Tessandra Carr says:

    Congratulations on your first contest! Please enter me too (I never seem to win anything in these contests, but it’s fun to try anyway). The book sounds very interesting indeed – she’s such a great writer.

  20. Terra Studer says:

    Good luck on your first contest and from experience I know it is the most exciting. I have been eyeing this book and even with all the blogging going on, I’m still on the fence about starting another series. Yes I do love to read and blog, read and blog, read and blog but I think the thing that is holding me back the most is I am on disability and only have so many $$$ to live off per month so gotta do priorities first and then think 1 big book, 3 or 4 smaller books. It’s tough!

  21. shartyrant says:
