So how do you win, you ask--very simple--you leave a comment in which you answer one or both of the following questions (Deadline to enter Oct. 30, midnight CST):

1. In the spirit of How to Ditch Your Fairy (featured in Prize Pack #2!!!)--If you could have a personal fairy, what would their special powers be? (For instance in Justine's book the MC has a Parking Fairy who makes sure she gets the very best parking spots)

FAIRY LUST by Cyn Balog:

Morgan Sparks and Cam Browne are a match made in heaven. They've been best friends since birth, they tell each other everything, and oh yeah- they're totally hot for each other.

But a week before their joint Sweet Sixteen bash, everything changes. Cam's awkward cousin Pip comes to stay, and Morgan is stunned when her formerly perfect boyfriend seems to be drifting away.

When Morgan demands answers, she's shocked to discover the source of Cam's distance isn't another girl- it's another world. Pip claims that Cam is a fairy. No, seriously. A fairy. And now his people want Cam to return to their world and take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Determined to keep Cam with her, Morgan plots to fool the fairies. But as Cam continues to change, she has to decide once and for all if he really is her destiny, and if their “perfect” love can weather an uncertain future.




Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception by Maggie Stiefvater

Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan is a painfully shy but prodigiously gifted musician. She's about to find out she's also a cloverhand - one who can see faeries. Deirdre finds herself infatuated with a mysterious boy who enters her ordinary suburban life, seemingly out of thin air. Trouble is, the enigmatic and gorgeous Luke turns out to be a gallowglass - a soulless faerie assassin. An equally hunky - and equally dangerous - dark faerie soldier named Aodhan is also stalking Deirdre.Sworn enemies, Luke and Aodhan each have a deadly assignment from the Faerie Queen. Namely, kill Deirdre before her music captures the attention of the Fae and threatens the Queen's sovereignty. Caught in the crossfire with Deirdre is James, her wisecracking but loyal best friend. Deirdre had been wishing her life weren't so dull, but getting trapped in the middle of a centuries-old faerie war isn't exactly what she had in mind. "Lament" is a dark faerie fantasy that features authentic Celtic faerie lore, plus cover art and interior illustrations by acclaimed faerie artist Julia Jeffrey.

***Maggie will be sending the winner a signed book plate as well!! YAY!


Rue Silver's mother has disappeared . . . and her father has been arrested, suspected of killing her. But it's not as straightforward as that. Because Rue is a faerie, like her mother was. And her father didn't kill her mother -- instead, he broke a promise to Rue's faerie king grandfather, which caused Rue's mother to be flung back to the faerie world. Now Rue must go to save her -- and must also defeat a dark faerie that threatens our very mortal world.

How to Ditch Your Fairy by Justine Larbalestier:

Welcome to New Avalon, where everyone has a personal fairy. Though invisible to the naked eye, a personal fairy, like a specialized good luck charm, is vital to success. And in the case of the students at New Avalon Sports High, it might just determine whether you make the team, pass a class, or find that perfect outfit. But for 14-year-old Charlie, having a Parking Fairy is worse than having nothing at all—especially when the school bully carts her around like his own personal parking pass. Enter: The Plan. At first, teaming up with arch-enemy Fiorenza (who has an All-The-Boys-Like-You Fairy) seems like a great idea. But when Charlie unexpectedly gets her heart’s desire, it isn’t at all what she thought it would be like, and she’ll have resort to extraordinary measures to ditch her fairy. The question is: will Charlie herself survive the fairy ditching experiment? From the author of the acclaimed Magic or Madness trilogy, this is a delightful story of fairies, friendships, and figuring out how to make your own magic.

The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones :

Swept away into a court of magic and beauty, she discovers she is Tania, the lost princess of Faerie. Since Tania's mysterious disappearance five hundred years before, Faerie has been sunk in darkness and gloom. With her return, Faerie comes alive again as a land of winged children, glittering balls, and fantastic delights. But Tania can't forget Anita's world, or the boy she loved there.

Torn between two loves and between two worlds, Tania slowly remembers why she disappeared, and realizes that she is the only one who can stop a sinister plan that threatens the entire world of Faerie.


These reminded me sooo much of the gorgy ones on Cyn's cover--if I'd kept them for myself I'd wear them when baking cupcakes or affix them to the top of my bookshelf. *sheds a tiny tear of jealousy for the winner*
Love these prints! This one reminds me of Kelly Parra's Graffiti Girl

The skull detail makes the wand, don't you think?
GOOD LUCK to all and THANK YOU for commenting and spreading the word!

My secret fairies magical powers would be to tell me my future.

I believe wheneve my brother does something nice for me like buying me book, that it's the work of a fairie.

Rebekah E. said...

I would want my fairies special power to be cleaning my house and doing laundry. No more cinderella here.

Brooke Taylor said...

I needed a blog faerie today--it ate my whole post!! So if anything is weird or amiss--well, it is my lazy blogger fairy's fault.

~Brooke

TheBookworm said...

My fairy's special power would be to make any outfit fit me.

There is tons of different things I could have a fairy for, but if a fairy could make any outfit, shirt, pants, shoes, etc, fit me perfectly... well, that would be pretty dang handy!!! :)

Please enter me!

Cheryl said...

I would like to have a fairy who helped me succeed at whatever I did that I really cared about. That would be amazing. Or maybe a fairy that would protect me from outside harm. Or how about an emotionally uplifting fairy?


I love How to Ditch a Fairy; I just read it.

Cheryl said...

I just signed up to follow your blog, too.

Diana Dang said...

Even though I was the Ghost's week winner, don't mind if I try to have another shot Brooke? ;)

If I had my own faerie, I would want the Lucky Faerie. As in, I will get Lucky in every way. From grades to future career, I will have all the luck in the world!

I would also would love a Creative Faerie. One that would help boring old me create something absolutely fabulous.

I would also love a Pretty n Slim (Healthily) Forever Faerie, because come on! I am indeed influence by media but you can't deny deep down that every girl wants to be pretty once in their life! I just want to be pretty forever!

Okay, I shall shut up now and go read another book...

Khyrinthia said...

I'd want a never-procrastinate-again fairy. That way I would get everything done super duper fast and then I could relax since I would no longer have anything to do.

Carol said...

I would love to have a homework fairy so I can get help with my homework. Please enter me for Prize Pack 1!

HylianVampire said...

interesting... if I had a fairy, i'd want its power to be that it can read minds. I guess... or maybe, just because it reminds me of His Dark Materials and daemons, i'd want it be able to turn into any animal.

I'm loving that Glamourkin pendant that says "In the Court of Dark Shadows" It's just amazing! haha I can see why it'd be so hard to giveaway, but i'm glad you are!! Whoever wins this week is lucky :)

I'd want my fairie to tell me what others are thinking of me, or anything else. I know, it sounds pretty nosy, but it's my personal fairie! Wouldn't that be so.cool?

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Yay for dot love!

Okay, a fairy that would do anything for me? How about getting me from place to another with just a snap or something? kind of like in harry potter, where they apparate. no more traveling!! unless you wanted too of course...
that would be lovely.

-lauren

Maprilynne said...

Oh man, I am so sad that my ARCs weren't ready for your Faerie week. They were supposed to be but . . . well . . . that's a very long story. But I'm so excited about the other faerie books that are out and coming out!!

1.) I would love to have a clothes faerie. I would love to be one of those people who always has clothes that look great on them! (Superficial, yes, but it's my fantasy!;))

2.) When my mother comes to visit she brings faeries with her and *poof* suddenly my house is clean! I love those faeries!

Susan B. said...

Hi Brooke,

My personal fairy would do my hair, make up, & pick out clothes for me each & everyday! My hubby would love this!!!

Occasionally I come home & the house is clean, laundry done, & critters taken care of. Oh wait that was a dream I had!!!


Have a great week,
Susan

Michelle said...

I wrote a novel last year for NaNoWriMo, so I need an Editing Fairy that will help me fix it up enough to send out to try to get an agent and ultimately get it published.

This is the first week I'm entering, but a couple weeks ago I added you to my list of blogs I follow (plus my bloglines account) after reading about it on my sister's blog (hi Kris!).

xtraliciousssx said...

If I could have any fairy I want, it would be the Eating-anything-but-not-getting-fat fairy. That way, I can eat anything I want, anytime I want, and still not get fat because the fairy would not allow it. ^^

Tiffany said...

Oh, my! Such an irresistible giveaway you have here!

So,

1)Morbid as it sounds, I would like to have a medium fairy who could help me communicate with the spirits of those who have passed on. I think it would be great to ask any question of any person you were curious about and get a real answer.

2)I've had animals look at me in odd ways that can't be entirely animal-like. Nor human, either. No better way to explain it than that. But definitely gave me a fey chill. :)

Tiffany Trent

Celeste said...

Wandered over from Maggies' blog. :)


1. I already have a Parking Fairy, so... a Be-Less-Dorky fairy? I don't know.

2. Back in elementary school, I used to always find shiny metallic four leaf clovers in my locker. I never did see anyone put them in, but there was a new one every few days. Fairies? Who knows.

B said...

Ohh my fairy would just sit around and read to me. :)

Liviania said...

1. My fairy would give me omnipotence. Okay, so that's my standard answer to the superpower question and doesn't lend itself as well to a fairy, but I stand by my answer.

2. Ooh, long list. I'm Irish, y'know. (Well, part. I'm American after all.) I think the fey like to steal bits of my time. Whenever I relax in my dorm room it just goes by too fast.

Fairy Lust looks utterly fab. So . . . *crosses fingers*

Stephanie Denise said...

#1. I would have a coif faerie. No bad hair days for me! My coif faerie would keep my tresses soft and shiny.

#2. I keep losing pens. Something tells me there's a faerie who steals them to write her own books.

pepsivanilla said...

a time fairy so I would never be late and stop procrastinating so much!

Anonymous said...

I hope I made it in on time!

I'd like a book-I-like faerie who would refer me to all the books I'd love :P

Sarahbear9789 said...

1. A healing Fairy. It would be amazing to not be sick.
2. The Fairy that steals socks.

Anonymous said...

Copying this from Livejournal...

1. If I had a personal fairy, it would be a Random Cravings Fairy. So if I'm dying for chocolate, bling! Chocolates on a platter. Or cheese. Or pizza. You get the idea.

2. Mischief of fairies? Every time I've lost my keys, or cellphone, or something else small and vital. There's got to be a little fairy laughing and jingling them.

NOTE: for some reason it won't let me log on as anything but anonymous!

Judi said...

Am I too late for this? :( I just found you through Maggie's blog on LJ.

My secret fairie would have the power to inspire my muse or to impart to me the gift of extra creativity! That would be awesome!

Lenore said...

I so want to see you bake cupcakes in those wings :)

And I agree with Lauren. I want my fairy to teleport me to wherever I want to go. That'd be super cool.

Peta said...

1. I'd like a tale-weaving fairy. Tale-weaving fairies are rare, because they have the power to change real life events through story.

To take the parking example: I'm circling around a parking lot, looking for a spot. Instead of simply asking for a spot, I tell myself a story in which I find one and--shazam!--the story comes to be.

2.I think there might be a little fairy magic going on whenever my photographs--particularly those of mushrooms--turn out well...

Peta said...

I've also added this to the Les Bonnes Fees Blog. I hope that's okay.

Hillary! said...

I hope this isn't too late.

The fairy I do have is very similar to Charlie's, except that I don't get the best parking spot. I can just park really well for someone who has only been driving since May.

1. The fairy I wish I had...a perfume fairy. Kind of like a clothes shopping fairy, but it would let me know when a perfume is perfect for me and melds perfectly with my "Hillary Scent", as my friends say. I can never find the right perfume! I love so many of them, but none that compliment me.

2. What the fey have done to me is steal all my favorite toys and jeans. My favorite doll from when I was two, and every year I lose my latest pair if carefully worn out holey jeans, you know the pair, the one that makes you feel comy no matter what situation your in, but has holes in the butt, groin, and knee. Well, every year since I was 12 the latest pair goes missing! For a while I thought it was my parents, but when I asked them they thought I was crazy, and rightly so, they don't care about that stuff, then I asked my brother and he said "ME TOO!" HIS PANTS GO MISSING ALSO!
How random is that?

Book~Adorer said...

My faeries special power would be either cleaning, seeing the future (to help with decision making) or just being a great friend(I don't come by to many of those).

Something I think faeries had a part in is my mother-in-law. She used to call a couple times a week and visit us constantly, She'd even surprise us on random days. But the last couple of months she's stopped completely. I am completely baffaled at why she stopped. She's quite a social woman and she's been like this since we got married 3 yrs ago. So I can only come up with faerie dust. They must sneaked up on her something and transformed my mother-in-law those little rascals. ****side note- I am now following your blog.

Riva said...

I'd want my fairy's power to be getting me a good seat at all the sold out events I want to attend.

I really do have a parking fairy. I can always find a good parking place.

Please enter me in the contest.

Stacey said...

Firstly, I want to say if I don't win something I'm going to cry! You seriously have put together amazing prizes!

1. In the spirit of How to Ditch Your Fairy (featured in Prize Pack #2!!!)--If you could have a personal fairy, what would their special powers be? (For instance in Justine's book the MC has a Parking Fairy who makes sure she gets the very best parking spots)

I would want a fairy that sped up my metabolism anytime I needed it so that I could eat whatever I wanted. ;) All chocolate diet here I come!

2. Tell me about something that has happened that you believe to be the work (or mischief) of faeries.

I am constantly losing my keys and chapstick. I swear I put it one place and find it in another place entirely. I think my house has a Brownie, as described in the Spiderwick Chronicles.

Aubrey said...

OOOH! If you let me win I will totally wear the wings while making cupcakes! Such a fun prize pack.

I would have a fairy that told me the names and contact info of all new authors who would be willing to send me ARCs and do Q&A's on my blog! That way I'd get lots more to do, and save lots of online searching time!

Aprilynne, I have been a fan of yours for a while and I am SOOOOO looking forward to your book! Sadness that the ARC wasn't ready for this because it would have been GREAT to win!

I have a fairy in my life, she's my 6 month old daughter, and she is going to be a flower fairy for Halloween. Now I know that magic exists, because she does.

mom2boys said...

My secret fairies powers would be mind reading. Then I would know what everyone was thinking. It would be very interesting.


I also think I have have a sock thief fairie around my house. I can never find any socks. Thanks!

Lesley K said...

Personally, I think a parking fairy would be pretty sweet.

But I'd rather have a buttered-toast-and-tea fairy. Who would appear only on cold rainy mornings when the car won't start, the dog refuses to go outside and leaves a mess on the carpet, and I'm faced with mounds and mounds of laundry that simply must be done yesterday. Then my fairy would *poof* into existence, tuck me into the sofa under a nice cozy afghan with tea and buttered toast and an excellent book (like one of these prize packs, hint hint) and murmur "There, there."

Or else a laser flamethrower fairy. That would be AWESOME.

rb said...

Oooh..i want a fairy that will remove all the lunchtime queues! If I win this, I believe it is the work of fairies! :P

Crystal Adkins said...

YAY Fairy week! Ok if I had a personal fairy it would be a pastry fairy lol... now here's why! I have a huge sweet tooth, and I try not to keep a ton of junk in the house b/c I want my 2 year old to eat healthy (one of us should) so if I had a pastry fairy I could have chocolate cake, strawberry cheesecake, or peanut butter fudge anytime without having to make it myself and worry about the left overs reaching him lol! Granted he does get his share of sweets so he's not totally deprived we do live right by a Dairy Queen after all :)

Crystal Adkins said...

I belive that whenever my hubby lets me sleep in on his days off to get up with Austin, that that is the work of some very nice fairies :)

ChristyJan said...

If I had a fairy she would ALWAYS keep DOVE chocolates in my candy dish and she would make sure that I could buy any pair of shoes and that they would not only be cute BUT actually feel good and not hurt my feet or make me fall down while walking in them.

I'd like a fairy that could control time (for example, speeding up those long, boring days at work so that they pass by faster).

GreenBeanTeenQueen said...

I do like the idea of a parking fairy, especially when I go out to do holiday shopping!

I think I would want a fairy to help me pick out clothes and find awesome outfits-a personal stylist/makeover fairy.

I also asked my fiance what kind of fairy he would want and he said a sports fairy to make the Chicago Bears/Cubs/Bulls all winning teams!

mandy said...

I'd like a faerie to help me communicate with animals.

Back again to say that I posted a reminder here:

thanks!
lauren

Jessa said...

I was directed this way from Shooting Stars Mag and it looked like fun!
My fairy's power would be to help me make deadlines. As a student, writer, and full-time waitress, the last thing I ever manage to do is to stay on time!
The work of fairies in my own life? Whenever I turn to grab something I just put down - like keys - and they're gone. And it's always right when I'm about to be late for work. I think it's the fairies' way of telling me to stay home and have fun with writing.

Reader Rabbit said...

My fairy would have magical powers to help me finish my homework in 5 seconds. And have it done well.

jennifer said...

my faerie would give me perfect health -- im always getting surgery and stuff (yesterday, for example, cyst removal on my right hand. sorry for bad typing.)

i believe homicidal faeries are at work when people go missing.

Paradox said...

I think I would choose one of two fairies:

1. Paranormal Sensitivity Fairy - Gives the owner sensitivity to paranormal activities.
2. Writing Talent Fairy - Makes the owner an awesome writer!

Paradox said...

Oh, I made a reminder post about faerie week on one of my blogs:

http://www.youngwriterssociety.com/weblog.php?w=1301

Laura said...

My secret fairy would be the keeper of fairy dust so that I could fly and also would be highly proficient at cooking, cleaning, and anticipating stock market movements!

The Compulsive Reader said...

I think I'd have to go with a never forgetting crucial tools fairy. Tis quite exasperating to always forget my graphing calculator the day of quizzes, tests, and exams. Similarly, I always seem to find myself without a writing instrument whenever I need one.

Bunny B said...

My personal fairy would tell me what people are thinking and would always advise me the best thing to say in all situations :)

bunnybx at gmail . com

Stitchinwitch said...

Since I'm a crafter I would love a fairy who would clean up any mess I made (that glitter drives me nuts when it gets on the carpet) and do all the boring chores for me.

I believe our family is visited by fairies frequently as often we will wake up with glitter or sequins on us even though neither have been out for weeks

ellie_enchanted said...

I'd love to have an anti-procrastination fairy.
Or maybe just a good-hair-day fairy.

Hey, I can wish ;)

.Books by TJ Baff said...

I just can't imagine being lucky enough to win this but here goes....
because this contest is up on october 30th...I am taking it as a sign.
My son died two years ago on october 30th, 2006. If I had a personal fairy she would be able to take me back in time whenever I wanted so that i could be with him.
We all know that Fairies don't have enough power to bring him back...so this would be the next best thing!
Tamara

Speed Reader said...

Wow, I am so excited about this prize pack. Brooke, you have seriously upped the ante for the rest of us that have contests on our blogs!

Let's see . . . I would want a personal fairy that would slow time so that I could catch up on the books on my to-read list! I can't believe that there was a time when I had a hard time finding good books to read . . . now I'm drowning in them!

i would want a babysitter fairy

I'd love to have a faerie that would grant me success! I'd love to be successful in all my endeavors in life; get into the college of my choice, get a good job, be a successful athlete, successful with a family, everything, basically! lol That would be really nice :)

Heather Harper said...

Do I get extra entries for having an Amy Brown Fairy Tattoo?

I'm just saying...

And I need a housecleaning fairy. And an accountant fairy. And an errand fairy. Life would be sooo much easier.

The Not So Closet Geeks said...

My fairy would give me charisma- that extra something to draw people to a person (did that make any sense?). I've also begun to follow your blog and have posted about the whole contest here: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog&pop=1

Laura said...

This is such a great giveaway. My fairy would be a food presentation fairy. I can bake and cook things that are seriously delicious, but look so unappetizing. I need a fairy to make everything look stylish and tasty!

Book Spot said...

If faeries could be magical enough to do it, I'd want one that could do something about these migraines when I have them.. I'll come up with an 'if not' though :)

Mel said...

I'd want a fairy who could tell me exactly where I know that actor from when I'm watching movies or TV -- sort of an IMDB fairy, I suppose. :)

I think that a mischievous fairy places spiders in my bed right before I go to bed -- I find one every few months and have to sleep on the couch for a few nights.

- sea0tter12 on LJ

Tina S. said...

If I could have a personal fairy I'd definitely want it's special power to be success in all things.

As for #2: I'm sure there is a faerie who likes moving small objects in my house (keys, pens, etc.) and changing the temperature on my oven when I'm baking!

p.s. what a great giveaway, thank you for this opportunity to win such amazing stuff!

Jess said...

This is an amazing giveaway! I think my personal fairy would remove all the calories from baked goods, leaving only deliciousness behind.

Carol said...

Oh, and I wish I had a homework fairy! :)

I also follow the blog and I linked it to my blog.
www.bookluver-carol.blogspot.com

Pikealicious said...

I really like the idea of the coif fairy so that I could always have good hair, but I think that I would want my personal fairy to be a Food Fairy. I would like to make delicious baked goods and be able to open up a pastry shop. That would be my ideal fairy.

For the other part- I believe there may be fairies because sometimes, on a clear day- that time between day and night- you can see things that are not normally there and it feels magical. (Wishful thinking maybe, but I don't care!)

P.S. Have you ever seen that children's movie about the fairies and the two little girls who believe in them and get all of England?America? believing in them- even Houdini? I love that movie!

softindierocker said...

I'd want to have a fairy that could manipulate time! ;) But not in a confusing way a la Back to the Future! =D

~Lucy D =)

Angela said...

oh, I love fairy books!

Right now I could use an inspiration/motivation fairy. A fairy to cook dinner would also be wonderful.

Fairies recently cleaned my kitchen when I came home from the hospital with a new baby.

davesmsperfect said...

My fairy would have the power to give me internet wherever I am. That way I would never miss out on sweet contests.

Lori T said...

My fairie's special power would be time managment...she would help to get me places on time.

I believe that their are fairies at work when my son decides to do something like his chores without my asking him a hundred and ten times.

Breanna said...

can you enter me for prize pack #2 please? =)

My secret fairies magical power would be the ability to stop time so I could just sit and think for a while or so I could catch up on my reading, hehe.

-Breanna

Stephanie said...

My secret fairies magical powers would be that it would be so smart that it could do my homework and my projects. And say i want a book and i dont have money to buy one she could make one up her self and make it amazing because she knows so much interesting facts.

YA Book Realm said...

2. Tell me about something that has happened that you believe to be the work (or mischief) of faeries.

Two weeks ago I had a dream that I was being suffocated by a orange butterfly! It must have been the work of a fairies. (Or a way my brain was expressing anxiety, I had to take the PSATs the next day)

bookrealm@gmail.com

keri mikulski :) said...

Amazing contest!!! If I had a personal fairy, they would watch over me and my family. And hand me money whenever I needed it. :)

BrigidsBlest said...

My secret faerie's power would be to help me find lost things.

As for faerie mischief, I've had things go lost before. They always turn up, but never where I left them. I think that's the faeries hiding things, which is why I choose the above-named power. ;)

~BrigidsBlest at Livejournal

bbricke said...

My secret fairy's powers would be to find me the best jobs and help me get money when I need it.

I think it is the work of my fairy when my little ones stop what they are doing just to give mommy a hug and say I love you.

Sarah said...

Hi Brooke!

My secret Fairies magical powers would be to help keep me healthy.

I'm a vegetarian, and sometimes don't eat all of the good things I should be eating. I wish my Fairy would help tell me "No!" when I dig into a snickers bar or buy a bag of potato chips. ;)

I would be thrilled to be entered into this contest! Thank you so much!

My fairy would be a house-cleaning, laundry-folding, kid-bathing, hair-drying, clothes-shopping wizard!

1. If I had a personal fairy I'd like to be able to transport wherever I want to. My family lives in Georgia and I only get to see them two or three times a year and to do so hubby and I have to drive 6 hours. Not fun!

If I could have a personal fairy I would want it to be a Fabric Fairy. She would sleep in a pillbox sized case, lined with silk and satin, that I could keep in my bag. Her powers would consist of making sure any fabric I owned was well taken care of and fit my needs perfectly. She would be able to do the wash and then fold/hang up the clean loads, be able to get out wrinkles at a moment's notice and get rid of any stain, spaghetti sauce stain, grass stain, pit stain or otherwise. Also, if for some reason my clothes weren't fitting properly that day, she could weave in a few stitches here and take out a few there to make sure all my clothes fit perfectly all the time. Of course, she'd be a wonderful style consultant too.

In my life I see snow and frost as the work of fairies. Even though most people see winter as a time when everything is cold and dead I just notice how everything shimmers with tiny crystals- if that's not the work of some kind of fairy, I don't know what would be!
