  4. I’ve heard good things about this book. Count me in.

  5. Maddie says:

    This is a terrific giveaway! Thanks! I loved Legend. Though I love dystopian literature, after awhile it all seems the same. Well, Legend was nothing like any of the other dystopian novels I have read. It was a refreshing change!

    I loved this book and everyone who had read it also was a huge fan. I love how the cover image echoes that of the design of The Hunger Games creating that association and also giving readers another awesome heroine! Plus the fact that it is based on Les Miserables is just another cool facet. Now I want to run out and read it all over again!

  8. Leslie Rose says:

    I think it’s so cool that books now get their very own trailers. I’m wowed by the creativity that goes into them. I’m just going to cheer for others entering the contest. My TBR pile will slap me if I add to it right now. Best of the best wishes for Marie.

    How cool you got to meet Marie, and what a great giveaway!

  10. Julie Dang says:

    Hey! I’m delighted to find my way to this giveaway so thank you for inventing such a giveaway for such an amazing book. I’ve read Legend and honestly I think it is the best creatively written dystopian novel. This was one of the books that I couldn’t put down and despised when it ended.I’d love to have a copy of Lu’s inspiring book.


  11. Erin says:

    I read it and LOVED it! I know my students will love it too! Pick me—the Rogue Librarian! :-)

  12. PK Hrezo says:

    Cool! I’ve heard lots of shiny reviews on this one–as shiny as that gorgeous cover!

  13. Howdy, Nutschell. Just dropping in to say howdy! Have a great weekend.

    YAY! Thank you so much for this perfect giveaway. <3 I am not a witty person. So probably won't get any extra entries :p Hih. But still. I want this book because I LOVED Legend. Have read it twice. Cannot wait to read it again. Would like to win this giveaway, because a signed copy is something I want more than anything. <3 Would love love love a signed copy of Legend :) Also, I adore Marie. <3 *Fingers crossed.*
    Love, Carina

    Hello there! Thanks for the giveaway. I checked out this book from the library on a whim, not knowing how amazing it was until I finished reading. Then I couldn’t stop rereading it, I love it so much and I wish I had my own copy. It also inspired me to start writing again too.

  20. Senator says:

    What better way to expand my bookshelf than by a book recommended by YOU?

  21. Dipping deep into another dystopian I havn’t read yet, would make my dreams of becoming the male verison of Katniss Everdeen, ever more endurable, (well in my dreams anyway.) hahah. Great giveaway, i was going to pick this book up awhile ago, but the Forsaken was calling my name. thanks for doing this, your amazing. (:

  22. Gem Tupaz says:

    My friend lent it to me an I really loved it! I promised myself that I’ll buy all the books that I love to reread and reminisce. And it’s a really great book! It would be a great part of my dystopia collection. :)

  23. Danine says:

    Ohhh,Ohhh,Ohhhh! , Please be the answer to my Dreams! I have been trying to get a signed copy forever, I don’t have enough $$$ to travel to one of Marie Lu’s book signings, but you could be the answer to my Dreams! That’s if I win the signed copy you have in the giveaway!

    “Legend” is one of the most believable YA books I have read. I could relate more to this book then the Hunger Games. I could imagine the characters as real people more then fictional characters.

    I would love a signed copy of this book! Thank you for the giveaway!
    I twitted but didn’t know how to share the link, also FB shared but have no clue how to send you that link either…lol…ohh if i only paid attention in my computer science class.

  24. Vanessa P says:

    Oooh. This book looks GOOD. I love this type of thing and Marie is a new to me author that I just added to this weeks list of authors to check out and add their books to my TBR list!! I loved your review and excerpt, it was what made me decide that I HAVE to OWN (libraries are great but some books have to be possessed!) a copy of this book. At any rate, it looks like it will have the same feel as Scott Westerfield’s Uglies series or some of my other favs.
    Here’s my creative effort to answer why I want a copy of the book:
    Novel is top



    Thanks for the giveaway!

  25. Michelle says:

    I loved this book to death, but I was only able to get a library version of it, so I’m really praying that I get this signed copy. This book had me on the edge of my seat since the beginning and I simply cannot wait until Prodigy, because I can’t wait to see what happens next. I can’t wait to see what happens to Day’s brother and how they get him back. Marie Lu just seems like an awesome person, and it would be an honor to get a signed version from her.

  26. Abby Rulison says:

    I think I should have a copy of Legend because I am a HUGE fan of hers!! I have been writing a story/book myself and I like rereading my favorite authors to get inspiration and this is one of the books i currently don’t own :(

  27. Kelly McKay says:

    This book has been on my TBR list for ever I just haven’t gotten around to buying it! I would love to win a copy! Thanks for the giveaway! :)
