Horse Race Booth: Friday - Spring Blog Carnival

****!!RACE CLOSED!!****
DO NOT ENTER THIS RACE


First up I must announce the winning horse of yesterday's race. . .

DIVERGENT

Not a huge turnout for yesterday's race. Divergent caught all the bets but for one which went to The Iron Knight. I really expected more of a fight.

If you chose that horse to champion congratulations you have been entered into the prize pot. To everyone else better luck with the next race.
For return players you can skip the formalities being repeated and check out today's horses racing. Place your bet in the form not the comments and answer the new question in the comments section.

Who doesn't love a little carnival fun. I sure haven't outgrown my love for carnival games. Lori over at Pure Imagination along with Angela from Reading Angel and Candace from Candace’s Book Blog are throwing the second annual Spring Blog Carnival. I have joined up with them to host a booth. This is likely all stuff you know if you are following along by linky.

Step right up
Only one comment to enter a bet
Just answer the question: (This is your ticket for the booth and to place a bet)
What theme in books is your favorite right now? Werewolves, vampires, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, historical, time travel, dragons, etc.
Please place your bet through the form not the comments. We don't want to sway the other entrants. The form also gives me a way to contact the winner.
We have a lovely copy of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater as a prize
(US only)


There are four horses that will be racing today. Bet for your favorite one. If the horse you chose wins your entry will be placed in the pot to win the prize at the end of the carnival. Sorry only the winners advance to the final round here. So choose wisely! There will be a new race each day this week. Come back each day this week to bet on the new horses. You are allowed to enter once each day. That means seven different comments and seven different bets. There might be a way to tip the race in your favor. Spread the word any way you can. Encourage your friends to come and bet on your horse as well.






Today's horses are:

Chime jockeyed by Franny Billingsley



Vanish jockeyed by Sophie Jordan



Tempestuous jockeyed by Lesley Livingston



Poison Study jockeyed by Maria V. Snyder
 They are ready to race so hurry and get your bets in. Which horse is your favorite or is the most likely to come out the winner?

  2. D) All of the above? ;)
    I'm definitely enjoying Dystopian, Historical Fiction, and anything with strong female characters in it (that don't need saving). I'm really, really over the supernatural stuff. REALLY.

  3. For the moment, I'm a little overdone on paranormal. I've been reading a lot of dystopians and historicals.
