Queen’s Thief Giveaway

Yay, it’s December already! Christmas is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate the season than by having a giveaway? πŸ™‚ You all know that one of my all-time favorites is the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. I have signed paperback copies of The Thief, The Queen of Attolia and The King of Attolia and they’re looking for a new home! Haven’t heard of this series (and whyyyyy, may I ask)? Click here to check out my review. If you’ve never read these books, you really should pick them up soon.

I’m going to ask a little favor from the winner. Please post a review of the series either on your blog or Amazon or Goodreads. If you don’t have a blog, you can do a guest post here. I just want to know what you think of the books and of course, provide more coverage about it.

To join the giveaway, leave a comment on where you’re planning to post your review as well as the name of your favorite thief in fiction. No need to include your email address since the WordPress comment system already asks you to do that. Giveaway ends December 17, 2010. Oh and did I say it’s international? Because it is. πŸ™‚ But I’ll be sending it through surface mail if ever so it might take some time to arrive. The winner will be chosen using random.org.

  1. SIGNED?! ME WANT! I have given these books ratings on GoodReads, but for some reason I haven’t reviewed them on my blog! I’ll be doing that soon after I read and review A CONSPIRACY OF KINGS. I ADORE this series.

    My favorite thief? Hm… probably George Cooper. Or the crows in Trickster’s Choice. πŸ™‚

  2. If I win I shall post on Goodreads.
    Robin Hood, of course, is my favorite. I’ve loved him since I was a very young (reading “The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood”).
    The rob from the rich and give to the poor.

  3. My son and I love the Thief, but I didn’t realize this is a series!! So cool I would love to be entered into the drawing. I will post a review on Amazon, Facebook, and when I get my blog/website up and running on there too.
    My favorite thief Robin Hood of course, and Mulch from Artemis Fowl.

  4. I’ve been wanting to read this series so this is a great chance for me to get started. But I would post my reviews on Goodreads (which in turn post to Facebook and Twitter) and Amazon, too.

    And since I don’t read many books about “thieves” in particular, I’m going to say the closest thing I can compare – sleuths. And mine is Sally Lockhart, from the Sally Lockhart quartet by Philip Pullman. She sneaks in and out of places all the time, but never to steal stuff… well, usually anyway.

  5. Oh, I want to try these series given the glowing reviews of Chachic. I think my kid sister would also enjoy it.

    I will post on Shelfari and my blog.

    Hope more people join this fun giveaway!

  6. I want the book because as of now, being a graduating student is pretty a costly level. So I have no time for buying books because if I do, my marching-on-graduation-day would be at stake. And I don’t want to risk that.

    I dare to review the latest books that I’ve read so far. And they can be viewed either on blog or goodreads. (http://rollzheick.blogspot.com/).

    As for my favorite thief, It would be Robinhood too. Thief and at the same time, hero. πŸ™‚

  7. Nice giveaway Chachic. Haven’t read any of the books from the series but they look really awesome! I post reviews on my book blog, shelfari, amazon, goodreads, etc. Hmmmm interesting question. I have to say either Artemis Fowl or Mulch. Both characters are in the same series. πŸ™‚

  8. The only thief I can think of is not from written fiction but from a TV show. And if that’s okay to use that one instead then it’s all the characters from “firefly”. They plunder, they kill, they do shady deals with people of questionable character. And they’re all so awesome!

    (there are graphic novels based on this series, so those are like books).

    I’d post my review on the Barnes and noble website. and on Shelfari, cause those are the only two accounts I have.

  9. The fact that these books are not only signed but this contest is open internationally makes me want to hug you SO DARN HARD!! of course, my favourite theif in fiction is GEN I mean, how could it not be!!! I have reviewed the queen and the theif already on my blog so the fact that I would have a signed copy of book 3 to review makes me HAPPY!!!!

  10. Chachic! This is super awesome. I’ve seen you discuss this series and I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never read it. However, I would definitely post review on my blog and GoodReads. My favorite thief is, of course, Mundungus Fletcher!

    “Beg pardon, Molly. But, you know, Willy nicked ’em orf Warty Harris in the first place so I wasn’t really doing nothing wrong…”

  11. Oh my gosh, signed books? I couldn’t say no to that so many thanks for hosting this giveaway πŸ™‚

    Anyway, I’ll do a guest post on your blog, and blog about my reviews on my site [the fickle fan] & promote these books on shelfari & goodreads & post links via twitter if i do win πŸ˜€

  12. I’ve seen these books at the bookstore and I want to buy it but need some money.

    I can post it on my blogspot blog, not this wordpress since I closed it.

    My favorite thief is Robin Hood

  13. I love these books, and really need to do a review of them – though it might be better if some young (or older!) person who hasn’t read them got the set. I’d be reviewing them on my livejournal, which is the site I’ve listed, and I’d probably cross post to my wordpress blog. My favorite thief in literature? Can I say Eugenides? Actually, Robin Hood, above, is a great suggestion, but my favorite thief of all has to be Bilbo Baggins.

  14. Ohhhhhhhh. I’ve been wanting to read these for ages! I can’t help entering…

    I would post my review on my blog, and possibly goodreads, too. I do both, sometimes.

    My favorite thief in literature is… very hard to choose. There’s George Cooper and Rosto the Piper, both excellent thieves from Tamora Pierce’s Tortall. Then there’s Digger (from Starcrossed) who’s got all their charm and skills wrapped up in a female package. I think, between the three, Rosto is just slightly above the rest…

  15. Hi Chachic!

    I guess it’s safe to enter your contest now. πŸ™‚ I’ll review it on my blog and I’ll also post it on goodreads. My favorite fictional thief would have to be Lupin Sansei or as he is known here, Lupin III.

    I wish I would win even if you didn’t agree on my little conspiracy proposal. πŸ˜›

  17. Great giveaway!! & thanks for open this contest internationally =) . I haven’t read any of the books from the series but they look really awesome! Since I don’t recall read many books about thieves in particular, I’m going to say Robin Hood, of course, my all time favorite & Liesel Meminger (The Book Thief by Markus Zusak).
    If I win it, I will post a review on Amazon, Goodreads & I’m working to open my own blog to spread my love for books in two weeks so I’ll be posting it there too ^^

  18. Oh, I’d love to enter! I’ve heard so much about these books, and they sound really interesting. I love thieves in fiction, and my favourite literary thief is Locke Lamora from the Gentleman Bastard Sequence by Scott Lynch. If I win I will post the review on my blog The Turn of the Page.

  19. If I win, I’ll post a review on Goodreads! My favorite fictional thief is Liesel Meminger from the incredibly sad, incredibly beautiful Holocaust novel “The Book Thief.”

  20. My favorite fictional thief would also be Liesel Meminger from Markus Zusak’s wonderful novel; The Book Thief. I read it a couple of months ago and I fell in love.

    If I’m the lucky winner I would post a review on my blog Escape In A Book and over at Goodreads.

    The first two books in this series can be won in my on going 500 followers giveaway. I have never read any of these books but heard such good things that I wanted to include them in my giveaway.

  21. If I win, I shall post a review on Amazon, Goodreads and Facebook! Your review makes me want to read this series so badly…
    My favorite thief character in fiction ? Well, I’d say Flynn Rider from Tangled (I’m a Disney addict) and Artemis Fowl!

  22. Signed? What body part did you have to sacrifice for that? o.O

    Seriously, I loved having Gen in the YA Fantasy Showdown (and I was so glad it came down to Howl and him. It was beyond perfect for me, even though it was never remotely anticipated that way).

    I would do a week long FEATURE of this series if I were to win it (even though it would be breaking my cardinal rule of featuring unknown fiction. But the awesome may make up for it. This series is truly incredible).

    Thieves always seems to have this enormous heart to them in fiction. I must say I have a soft spot for them. Eugenides always my favorite. And Eugene from the recent Tangled definitely has my heart right now too. (Eugene, Eugenides… Correlation? I think so). πŸ˜‰

  23. Hi! I’ll join since the book is intriguing! My favorite fictional thief is Mr. Fox from Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl πŸ™‚ and yes, I’m going to post a review on my book blog πŸ™‚

  24. What a generous and awesome giveaway! Thank you for hosting it! πŸ™‚

    I’d review the series on my site if I had the luck of winning them-I’ve been wanting to read this series for a while now.

    Hm, I had to think really hard for my favorite literary thief. It’d have to be Dani from Elizabeth Scott’s STEALING HEAVEN. Her mother’s trained her to steal all her life but she doesn’t want to steal things anymore but she also doesn’t want to lose her mother.

  25. I have never, in my life, written a review for a book or at least I never had the courage to post one, but if I do win this one then I will wholeheartedly post one on goodreads.

    My favorite thief besides Gen would have to be Kvothe from The Name of the Wind.:)

  26. Oh, so many choices! But the prize goes to – hang on, where’d the prize go? Well, that settles that one: James Bolivar DiGriz, the Stainless Steel Rat.

    I blog at Cold Iron & Rowan-Wood, linked from my name there.

    • Oh, I’m familiar with James DiGriz, a very funny yet resrourceful thief. Also very besotted with his wife who can kill him all sort of ways if he strays.

  27. This is a fantastic idea for a giveaway! I’d definitely post a review to my blog (shadowsyra.livejournal.com) although I’ve already written a bit where I gush about the series already. πŸ™‚

    My favorite fictional thief aside from Gen, of course, would probably have to be George Cooper from Tamora Pierce’s Tortall series.

  28. Neat idea, I just started a blog over on blogger (narrativeinvestigations.blogspot.com it’s so new I occasionally forget how to spell the address) and I would post reviews there and a guest spot would be awesome.
    Anyway, it’s a little hard for me to choose a favorite but the first thief to pop into my mind (after Gen anyway) was Fisk from Hilari Bell’s Knight and Rouge series (probably because I just reposted a review for one of those books). Fisk isn’t strictly speaking a thief I suppose, he’s more of an all around con man who is trying to reform, well, most of the time anyway. Being squire to knight errant Michael does require his old skills way more than Michael would like to admit but I recall at least one time when they broke into someone’s house to steal documents so I say he counts in the contest!

  29. I will post reviews on my LJ and book review comm.s on LJ.

    (Is this a trick question? =O) My fav. thiefs, in order of preference:

    1) Eugenides
    2) Robin Hood in Robin McKinley’s The Outlaws of Sherwood
    3) Jeremy Archer in M. Chandler’s Shadow of the Templar series
    4) Mildmay in Sarah Monette’s Melusine series
    *) Does Neal McAffrey in White Collar counts?

    …5) *mumblemumble* Saint Tail in the titular manga series, Saint Tail

  30. So… how anyone can pick anyone but Gen first is beyond me πŸ™‚ But second would be Kavi, from Hilari Bell’s Farsala trilogy. Have you read them, Chachic? I love them. (Not the first book as much, though it was really good, but the second and third…!)

  31. It is something of a toss-up between George in The Song of the Lioness, and Eugenides. They are two very different characters from two very different books, but they are both a) really good thieves and b) really, really attractive.

    …REALLY attractive.

    I’ll review it on my livejournal, jade_sabre_301. πŸ™‚ (Not that, you know, I haven’t reviewed the books there many times already, but it would probably be good to do a proper one.) πŸ™‚

  32. My favourite thief is maybe a tie between Eugenides, and Artemis Fowl. If I win I’d post the review on my livejournal. This is really cool! Are the books hardcover or paperback?

  33. I kept forgetting to join your giveaway! I will post my review on Goodreads and probably also on my Multiply site.:)

    I honestly can’t think of any thieves in literature at the moment, but I can’t imagine liking anyone else better than Gen!:)

  34. Got to admit I’ve never heard of these one’s. A shameful gap in my literary knowledge. If only there were some way I could get hold of a copy…
    Favourite fictional thief – dang there are so many. I love Philippe Gaston from Ladyhawke. I know the book was just an adaptation from the film so probably doesn’t count, right?
    Then let’s go with Locke Lamorra from Scott Lynch’s fine series.

  35. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I ADORE these books!

    Soo…if I win, I’ll post a review for these books on my blog, and on goodreads.

    And thieves are my favorite characters in fiction! πŸ™‚ My absolute favorite has to be Gen from this series though. He’s just awesome. πŸ˜€

  36. *shrieks*

    Oh! Dear. I’m jealous of the winner already. I mean, my favorite series in the entire world? Signed??? This is the stuff of waiting- all-night-on-line-in-the-rain-to-get-it sort of stuff…

    If I win, I’ll post on Amazon (enthusiastically, may I add.)

    Fave thief? No brainer – Gen, of course! Runners-up include Terry Pratchett’s Moist Von Lipwig or A.J. Raffles (the Gentleman Thief). I’d nominate Zusak’s stellar Leisel as well, except that I don’t quite feel her the “thief” you’re looking for; it’s ever so much more complicated, in my opinion. But it is a clever way of looking at things…

    My sister nominates Roald Dahl’s Fingersmith. I second the notion.
