Horse Race Booth: Sunday - Spring Blog Carnival

**I won't be around tomorrow to watch Sunday's race unfold or help champion the horses. Therefore I decided to post Sunday's race today and let it have two days to collect votes. I will announce the winners of both Saturday and Sunday when Monday rolls around.**

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 book do you most wish you were reading right now?
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:

Secrets and Shadows jockeyed by Shannon Delany

Clockwork Prince jockeyed by Cassandra Clare

Catching Fire jockeyed by Suzanne Collins

The Crow jockeyed by Alison Croggon
 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?

Remember you must comment below for your bet to count and fill out the form.

The results of the race will be posted the following day before the new race starts.

A recap:
You can comment once each day and place a corresponding bet on that day's race.
A total of seven possible entries if you come back each day and your horse wins.
The entries for the winning horses each day will be placed in the pot and one will win the prize.
They will be contacted by email and have 48 hours to respond.

One more time:

  1. I wish I were reading In Honor by Jessi Kirby and When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle.

    1. When You Were Mine sounds like a very sad book based on the title.

  2. I really wish I was reading Insurgent right now =)

  3. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson - But it's not released til july!

    1. I have never been a fan of Peter Pan so I am not in a hurry for Tiger Lily.

  4. I wish I was reading Libba Bray's Beauty Queens. :)

  5. At the moment, I wish I was reading Jessica Spotswood's Born Wicked. =I

    1. Great pick. I want to read that one too.

  6. Divergent! Still haven't read it!

    1. In some ways that is really good. If you were able to read it now at least you wouldn't have to wait to read Insurgent. If you wait another year then you can read it all at once.

  7. I wish I was reading City of Lost Souls!

  8. I don't know there are a lot to pick from but I think I'd have to say Divergent.

  9. I wish i was reading Insurgent!...My husband has imposed a very strict book buying ban on me because we have a library right next to us and he asks me "WHY do you spend so much money on books when you can get it for free from the library!"...*sigh*

  10. I have been dying for Something Like Normal FOREVER now an even though I have an ARC, I'm to busy to read it now//:

    Racquel @ The Book Barbies♥ -thank you&come again.

  11. I wish I was reading The Enchantress by Michael Scott but it doesn't come out until May 22nd - just a few more days!!
