CONTEST: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

This contest is now CLOSED! Thank you for entering

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Laini Taylor and I was in awe because Daughter of Smoke and Bone is my absolute favorite book of the year. It was beautifully written, poetic and romantic beyond belief and I cannot wait for the next installment in this series. Since I had the good fortune of meeting Laini I wanted to share that with a lucky winner.

AROUND THE WORLD, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth has grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Contest Item: A signed hardcover copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and some awesome tattoos.
Contest Question: If you could travel anywhere in the world to collect teeth for Brimstone where would you most want to go and why?

2) Must be over 13 years of age and able to receive contest goodies in the mail.
3) Open Internationally
4) Contest ends November 25th, 2011. Midnight PST

  3. Japan or Italy: the former I want to explore more and the latter I have yet to go yet!

  4. I would want to go to Rome. I am really interested in roman mythology and I have always wanted to visit the Sistine Chapel. Thanks a bunch!

  5. I'd definitely go to London. Not only is it the one place that I'm dying to travel to, but it seems like it'd be perfect for an adventure!

  6. There's so many places I'd love to go to. I think I'll go with London or Ireland. :D

  9. New Zealand, I've wanted to go since I watched the movie "Once were Warriors" :) The beautiful landscapes captivate me.

  10. I'd love to go to India--it's known for being both beautiful and that'd sound like a perfect place for an adventure. Also, there's a LOT of people there so it'd be a good place to hide!


  11. Ireland, Greece, or Japan! I've always been fascinated with these countries and I really want to see them for myself.

  12. Scotland. It's a place I've always wanted to go, but I have a feeling I'd end up picking somewhere like Italy or Spain instead of it if I had to pay for airline tickets. This would give me the chance to go!


  13. I'd go to Tokyo, it's the place I most want to go.

    (To Jessica above, I'm in Scotland just now, it's raining :) )

  17. I'd go to Italy. I have dreams about the lives I would lead if I lived there. The cultures are so distinct and laid-back; it would be SUCH a change!

  21. Russia. I'm not sure how many people know this, but in Red Square, there is an ice cream cart with the world's best chocolate soft-serve cones. Might as well rot my own teeth out happy while I collect the others...
