Mark it Up May: Tantalize

Posted May 19, 2008 by shooting in Uncategorized / 46 Comments

Our next contest is for the book Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith. Again, the book is marked with little comments from Cynthia as you read along. Along with this book, you get a Sanquini’s t-shirt (Sanquini’s is a restaurant in the book), along with a couple other goodies.

Since this prize is a bit bigger then the others and the ones still to come…I will give you the rest of the month to enter. So this contest will be ending on Saturday, May 31 at Midnight, Eastern Time.

So that’s the prize and the timeline…but what do you have to do?!

Name three singers, bands, or groups that you like…and hey! who knows? Maybe you’ll see something on them in the future!
That’s it!
Feel free to spread the word though to anybody you know. :0)

Again, a couple more Mark It Up May contests are coming, so keep a lookout.

WINNERS OF LAST CONTEST AND GLBT CONTEST: Prizes will start going out this week! Sorry for the wait, especially the GLBT contest.

  1. I’d love to win Tantalize! I’ve been wanting to buy it for a long time, and having it marked up would be even better! The t-shirt sounds great too.

    Three of my favorite bands are…
    -One Republic (I listen to them everyday)
    -Boys Like Girls
    -Relient K

    Really hard to choose considering I love soooo many bands =)

  2. Breanna: Great bands! I love BLG and Relient K too. many good bands.

    The Story Siren: Yeah, you post here! Nice list as well. Love The spill canvas. have you seen them live? I’ve seen them twice. great band.


  3. Awww, only three? Lol, I’m just joking! The contest sounds awesome!
    I like Sparrow House (especially the song ‘When I Am Gone’), The Weepies (esp. ‘The World Spins Madly On’) and The Shins!!!!
    Thanks for the contest!!!! =D

  4. Melissa

    I love the Beatles, Gavin DeGraw, and Alanis Morissette.

    Man, this is a great contest, I love Tantalze, and it’d be interesting to see what Cyn comments. *crosses fingers and fangs*

    And so hard to choose three favorites, cause I listen to so much different music. Here’s three that are at the top right this minute:
    -David Cook
    -Green Day
    -Vanessa Carlton

  7. Cool, cool contest, the marked up books are the best.

    Let’s see, I’ve recently become a Panic! At the Disco fan, and I really like Casting Crowns as well. Also, the Beatles are amazing!

    Very ecclectic, I know…

  8. I just hopped over from Cynthia’s blog … what a fun idea! Three of my favourites are:

    Poets of the Fall

  9. The Goo Goo Dolls are my hands down favorite band. So they’re number one with me.

    I’ll name Idiot Pilot right now, because I’m really into her song “Retina and the Sky” Its amazing.

    And lastly….the Japanese band Nigrilis, because they have THIS AMAZING song called “Sakura” which is the final opening theme to Eureka Seven… and I love that song. Its perfect for the anime and not to mention it has amazing grace being sung in it (in english may I add)! Listen to it! Its amazing…

  10. I can’t imagine a cooler prize. Reading notes in margins almost feels like reading someones else diary.

    My three favorite bands are:
    the Dresden Dolls
    the Flash Girls
    and the Young Dubliners

  11. I’ve been wanting to read Tantalize for awhile now! It would be even cooler to win a marked up copy. 🙂

  12. Oooh, I want this 🙂

    I’m a geek, so I listen to a lot of broadway stuff, as well as jazz. I’ll talk about my more commercial music interests, though 🙂

    I like Kelly Clarkson, my favorite songs she does are Respect, A Moment Like This, and Breakaway.

    Bryan White is great. I especially like Someone Else’s Star and Look at Me Now.

    Bette Midler. Must be the gay in me. I like The Rose, Wind Beneath my Wings, and her cover of Under the Boardwalk.
