Zombies vs Unicorns Giveaway!

Zombies vs. Unicorns

by Holly Black, Justine Larbalestier, et al
It's a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn? In this anthology, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier (unicorn and zombie, respectively), strong arguments are made for both sides in the form of short stories. Half of the stories portray the strengths—for good and evil—of unicorns and half show the good (and really, really bad-ass) side of zombies. Contributors include many bestselling teen authors, including Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Meg Cabot, Scott Westerfeld, and Margo Lanagan. This anthology will have everyone asking: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?

The Prize: 
One winner will receive a finished copy of: 
Zombies vs Unicorns
4 pins (2 team zombie and 2 team unicorn)

Official Rules:

Contest ends 12-15 midnight eastern standard time.
Open to all entrants with a valid U.S. mailing address.
You must be 13 years or older to enter
Please leave an email address for me to contact you with if you are the winner.

Bonus entry: Tell me, what team are you--zombies or unicorns? Why?

I've been dying to read this one, it looks great! :) I'm definitely team zombies, they're awesome.


Katie said...

I'm team unicorns because they are so amazing! Thanks for the giveaway :)

Brooke Reviews said...

I'd have to be team unicorn. All they have to do is rear up and kick the zombies in the head. The horse on The Walking Dead was just outnumbered!


Alexa said...

Looks like a good book. Thanks for the giveaway.
I would say I'm team Unicorn just because they are pretty whereas zombies are well dead and quite ugly.


Tina said...

I've been really looking forward to reading this book--so many great authors!
I keep bouncing back and forth between team zombie and team unicorn. At the moment I'm teen unicorn because I'm feeling nostalgic. I was absolutely adored unicorns when I was little.
Thanks for the chance to win :)

Like all my favorite authors are in this book and the cover has to be the best cover I've ever seen before. =) I have to say I am team zombie... I mean who would want to be a horse? When I am a zombie I wont have to worry about people sitting on my back lol


lostinbelieving said...

Oooh, thanks a bunch for giving this book away!

I'm definitely team unicorn. Why? Because unicorns have the cute, pretty look and because of that people underestimate them. People shouldn't assume!


jacque said...

Cleo said...

I've been seeing this book everywhere and really want to buy it but I just have so many other books in my TBR list... I think I'm team unicorn because unicorns are usually really pretty and nice and like to help people. Or at least that's what I assume... Anyways, thanks for the giveaway!


Kate said...

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!


+1 Team Unicorn, ok so I have not read the book but I love horses so naturally I'm going to be on the horses/unicron's side!

Amanda, aka Morning Glow said...

Team zombie! Undead and proud of it! They are, I mean. And.. well I assume they're proud of it. As they are undead and sort of mindless I'm not sure what sort of emotions they really feel?.. Hm.

Thanks for a great giveaway!

debbie said...

I would love to read this book.
I would be on team unicorn. Well, they would have to smell better than the zombies. They have their own weapon, their horn, and they are happy.

Kay said...

Looks great!

I'd have to say... Team Unicorn :)

Maryann said...

Oh, this book looks great!!

I am team unicorn! They are cute & dangerous.....


Orchid said...

As far as I can remember, I haven't come across a unicorn book yet; so I can't say team unicorn. But on the other hand, I've only read maybe three zombie books; yet, I wouldn't go so far as to say that I'm team zombie. So as of right now I'm on neither team, but Zombies vs Unicorns sounds like a great book. ^_^
Thanks for the great contest.

Mousie said...

I'm so glad I found this book. I really can't wait to read it. I love Zombies and Unicorns. So having them together in the same book has to be a winner. :)
As for what team I would pick well that is sure a hard one. The unicorn is cute but do they have a chance against the zombies. They could use their horn for protection but I don’t think that will work to well. I would pick team Zombie. See they might be slow but they have a wicked taste for unicorn meat. Oh yes unicorn meat. You might not know this but as the unicorn ages, its meat becomes fatty and marbled and the living bone in the horn loses density in a process much like osteoporosis. The horn's outer layer of keratin begins to develop a flavor very similar to candied almonds. Blending the crushed unicorn horn into the meat adds delightful, crispy flavor notes in each bite. As I have read on Thinkgeek.com who is the leading producer of canned Unicorn Meat. So I really think once the zombie has a taste of the outstanding meat they will never stop.
Sorry little unicorn. Maybe this book will turn me around to taking your side but until them I’m all team zombies.


Moridin said...

I'm team zombies because they're undead.

Sniffly Kitty said...

Team Zombies!!


Jessica said...

Omg I have not heard of this but I suddenly got all crazy fan girl mode. I am team Unicorn it's been on my Christmas and birthday wish list to have one for ages. Still no Unicorn :( Course getting a shotgun and going zombie hunting is on my to do list as well.
Wait how about : Zombie hunting while riding a Unicorn?
I think my brain just exploded with the awesomeness.


rhapsodyinbooks said...

I'm team Unicorn, all the way! They're cute and more believable than stinky zombies!

Vivien said...

I've been really wanting to read this one. Team Zombie! Because they're cooler, meaner, smellier, not pretty, definitely not going to be in a fairy tale. I love Resident Evil so I'm Team Zombie all the way!

Pokadots1121 said...

Team Zombie I think. I mean how funny to be alive even after being dead.

Scot Wilson said...

I'm team unicorn because zombies would just chew on the horn of a unicorn until they died of malnutrition.

Maidenveil said...

Asenath said...

I'm totally Team Unicorn because they are so pretty!!!

Savannah Smith said...

AWESOME GIVEAWAY! :D I'm so dying to read this!
Personally, I'd have to say I'm team unicorn. :) I'm big into folklore and mythology, besides that, Unicorns are pretty and I'd imagine nice smelling, as opposed to the zombies...


Soultified said...

I have been wanting a copy of this book! Team Zombies all the way!! Zombies are awesome because they're creepy =).


Onge said...

I'm not sure what team I am. I have only read one zombie book and one unicorn book. In both they were seen as bad, so I am not sure who to side with. :)
Thanks for the giveaway!!

linaramz said...

It's hard to choose but since I recently finished a good zombie book I'm going to go with zombies! Because they're just scarier and killing zombies is fun. ;)

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Joana said...

Zombies because stories with zombies in them are always way more interesting.

Tiff said...

I've wanted to read this book since I first heard about. At the moment, I am team unicorn, because even though they seem pure and innocent, there is something savage underneath.


Amy said...

Team Zombie, probably because I've played too much Call of Duty with my brother.


Bri Meets Books said...

Unicorns are magical, need we say more. Also, they don't eat flesh. ..Unless they're Diana Peterfreund's unicorns.
