Goodreads and Competition

A friend sent me a request to join Goodreads via Facebook, but I didn't want to do it via Facebook so I just joined up directly to the site. You can find me here. This link is also in the 'Find Me' tab. Feel free to shoot me a friend request!


My sincerest apologies to the people I follow via their blogs, as I have had very little time in the past week to read up on your latest posts. I promise to make an effort to catch up some time in the near future! It has been hectic here!


Competition! 
So just to stir up a bit of fun to make up for not being a very dedicated blogger in so long, in 100 words or less, describe something beautiful. This could be anything! A woman, a magnificent view of a beach, the sunset, the sky, an emotion, a dream, a place, a thing, anything that you think is beautiful!

Rules:
Competition closes in one week! (Tuesday, June 5th, 2012, at 5:00pm, Australian Eastern Standard Time)


One entry per person. No anonymous entries. Entrants must have an account that can be linked to via blogger when submitting a comment: e.g. the name you comment with can be clicked on a take me directly to your own online profile. Including a link in an anonymous post does not count.

I will post all of this competition's entries in the first blog-post after the closing date (by entering the competition, you agree to this automatically) and ask readers to vote for one entry. Voters may not vote for their own entry, and to help avoid cheating, no anonymous votes will be accepted.

No prizes sorry, just bragging rights and the enjoyment of writing.

Tell your friends. Have fun. Ready, set, GO!

- Bonnee.

  2. I checked your page, Bonnee, on Goodreads and the 21 books that you've read. I wanted to read Love-Shy but they don't have it here in the public library. But they do have many copies of Lili Wilkinson other books: PINK and THE NOT QUITE PERFECT BOYFRIEND. I'll check them out. You might want to read or at least read some pages (like I did) from THE HUNGER GAMES, just to see what make a YA fiction a huge best seller. I mostly just watched the movie and liked it. I'm too lazy for contests ..:). Best wishes.

    1. Thanks for checking me out on Goodreads :) After reading Love-Shy, I'm eager to get my hands on some of Lili Wilkinson's other books, including Pink and The Not Quite Perfect Boyfriend. I haven't seen the movie for the Hunger Games yet, but my mother recently brought the first two books. I'll have a flip through them at some point! :)

    2. Haven't seen the movie yet either, but the books are good. The first one did not have as much real feeling as I had hoped.

    3. I've had mixed word-of-mouth reviews from the book. I'm hearing a lot of good, but I'm also hearing a lot of "overrated". I guess it doesn't have to be bad to be overrated... I haven't heard anyone say that it was bad... I JUST GOTTA READ THEM! :)

  5. Hey Bonnee, I have been sick with strep throat, so I haven't been much good as a writer during the past few days. :( But I still really wanted to participate, so here is an excerpt from some of my work. It's not to great, but...

    "True, she was graceful and beautiful, yet what caught the eye was her overpowering majesty. At once Caleb realized this was the horse he had been waiting for... With movement akin to waves on some forgotten sea, and an auburn mane flowing down her neck softer than the snowflakes which settled around her slim legs, all other appaloosa in Smewasin Territory paled in comparison. Even her leopard coat was silkier than his own rabbit fur gloves. But what startled Caleb was her eyes; icy, piercing, ancient - as if when he gazed into them he saw..." -Mack Isbell

  6. btw this is from my current book in progress, I dont know if that is ok, I mean I wrote it but, not just for this. I have had to much of a fried brain recently to be original!!

    1. Considering that I didn't make a rule saying that this was not allowed, I will allow it, I'm happy to allow excerpts from WiPs. :) I still consider it original as long as you wrote it. Thanks for participating (unless someone else makes a last minute entry in the next 52 minutes, you'll be the default winner!)
