CONTEST: The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand

Hi there, insatiable readers!
What's that?  You didn't expect to hear from me again so soon?  Well, I'm just good like that, surprises and all.  Just kidding!  Seriously though, this is going to be a week full of fun!  We've got two book tours coming through, some tasty teasers tomorrow, and MEGA contest fun Friday and Saturday when the Got Books? Event goes live....yep, an exciting week if I do say so myself....but you know what?  Let's dial up the excitement a little more, shall we?


We all love a good contest, I mean who doesn't want the opportunity to read a great book?  With one of the visiting tours this week as well as the Got Books? Event, you'll certainly get your chance for bookish contest fun, but there's one more I'd like to throw into the mix.  It's a bit of a backward contest since the chance to win will precede my review, but we've done them before and everyone seemed to have a good time, so here we go!
