Giveaway! ARC of Sarah Addison Allen's GARDEN SPELLS

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED NOW! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!
In a garden surrounded by a tall fence, tucked away behind a small, quiet house in the smallest of towns, is an apple tree that is rumored to bear a very special sort of fruit. In this luminous debut novel, Sarah Addison Allen tells the story of that enchanted tree, and the extraordinary people who tend it - Garden Spells, cover information.
I'm giving away an Advance Readers Copy of Sarah Addison Allen's Garden Spells. The paperback edition just came out; the ARC that I have to give away was printed in advance of the hardcover, which came out last August.

From what I understand Garden Spells has been very popular and Allen's new book, The Sugar Queen, just came out recently as well.

The giveaway will be open until July 22; you can enter by leaving a comment on this post. If you write about the giveaway on your blog and link back to this post, I'll enter you twice. Good luck!

(Oh, and as always you can click on the cover if you want to buy the book!)

Hi Marie! I just saw this book in Waldenbooks Thursday and picked it up for the first time. It looks rather clever. I've blogged this giveaway on my Giveaways and Contests page. :-D

Don't enter me in the contest since I've already read this one, but it is such a lovely book! A bit predictable in spots, but overall it was lush and magical and just too much fun. A great book for a plane ride as it turns out. I grabbed The Sugar Queen from the library yesterday, and I hope I enjoy it as much.
