1 Literary Stocking Stuffer Winners

Here, thanks to the awesome folks at Random House, are the winners of the book tie-in stocking stuffers giveaway we've been running for two weeks. I'll mail these all out on Monday via Priority Mail, so they should arrive in time for Christmas.

Please note that ONLY the stocking stuffer was given away. The books themselves need to be purchased separately.

If you didn't win, or didn't enter, and are still thinking about what to get your young adult bookworm, consider these as options. Having seen them in my hot little hands, I have to say that they look like fun. I am buying some myself!

If you like the HOUSE OF NIGHT series by P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast:

Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards: A 50-Card Deck and Guidebook


WINNER: Pam R.


For the fans of the best-selling House of Night series, the Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards provides a unique interactive experience with the vampyre Goddess Nyx. Packaged in a keepsake box with a guidebook, the deck contains fifty gorgeously illustrated cards, many of which are based on characters in the books.

To begin, simply ask Nyx a question: What should I do in this situation? What is going on with my relationship? What will result from my next action? Then select a card and consult the guidebook to discover the message that Nyx intends for you. Just like Zoey Redbird and the other fledglings of the House of Night, you will be encouraged to trust your intuition and make powerful decisions about your life!

The Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards is an original divination system, created by P. C. Cast and oracle expert Colette Baron-Reid. It draws inspiration from the Tarot, Norse runes, and the I Ching, but no special expertise is required to use these cards. The illustrations are by digital artist Jena DellaGrottaglia.
