20 in 20 - Week 16 + Winner

And the winner of Delirium is . . . .

Cara! (@ChasingWords)

Cara, please email me your mailing address at and I'll get that on its way.

And now, a new giveaway!

So I love characters, especially when I find a character that is "just so me!" I also love character quizzes. Yes, perhaps that's dorky, but I love when my computer tells me which character I am most like in a book or TV show. It's fun!

So this week, I'm not just giving away a book, I"m giving away a book of the winner's choice. It could be one of my books, it could be a Jane Austen classic, it could be ANYTHING. Its totally up to you!

But here's how to enter - and this week you can get EXTRA ENTRIES so pay attention!

You may have noticed the new bar at the top of this page. It's a SHUT OUT character quiz, a way to find out which of the leading ladies in SHUT OUT you are most like before the book comes out in . . . uh, wow. 2 weeks from today, actually!

I told you, I love character quizzes.

So to enter for the book of your choice, please do the following:

1. First, go up to the top of the screen (or to this link) and take the SHUT OUT character quiz. (If you'd like to like my fanpage, that'd be cool, too, but it isn't required. :-P)
2. Once you take the quiz and find out which character you are, come back here and tell me who you are in the comments.
3. Also in the comments, place a link to a blog or tweet where you linked this giveaway.

And that's it, unless you want ONE EXTRA ENTRY!!

For the extra entry, all you have to do is, along with your SHUT OUT character and link, tell me which character in literature you think you are most like. for example, I think I'm most like Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter books. So who are yOU most like?

And that's it! I can't wait to see what characters you guys are from SHUT OUT! According to that quiz . . . I'm a Chloe. And you guys will get to learn a little about Chloe next week when we start the SHUT OUT trailer campaign. It should be interesting!

Contest ends Friday at midnight PST, and it is open to US/Canada only. Good luck!


Sara said...

I took the quiz a few days ago and I am most like Ellen. And I have to say, from the description on the quiz, she sounds exactly like me! So excited to read about her in Shut Out.


And as for which character in literature I am most like? Hmmm, that is tough for me to say since I see bits and pieces of me in so many but I would have to say Juliette in Shatter Me. I just recently read the ARC and really felt I identified with her a great deal.

Great giveaway!! :)

dani_nguyen said...

According to the quiz, I'm most like Lissa. After reading the description, I completely agree. You had me at neurotic :)


I think the character in literature I'm most like is Kendall from Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann. I feel like I have a lot in common with Hermione too though.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Erica said...

I took the quiz and I am Lissa.


Character in literature would definitely be a cross between Hermione Granger and Elizabeth Bennett.

Angel C @ Mermaid Vision Books said...

Quiz says I'm most like Mary!

I tweeted too:!/mermaidvisions/status/105752610128138240

As for a literary character, I've always identified with Aislinn from Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series.

Thanks for the giveaway!

basma aal said...

I took the quiz and I am Mary. I cant wait to find out more about Mary.

I tweeted about it:!/basma_aal/status/105754338902806528

In literature, I am most like Auden from Along for the ride by Sarah Dessen.

Ayra T said...

I took the quiz and it says I am most like Lissa. :) I'm so excited to read Shut Out! :D


Which character am I most like? I think I'm mostly like Ronnie from The Last Song. I'm not a rebel, but, I really think I am most like her. And she is someone I can relate to. :D

Thanks so much for the giveaway! :D

Joely said...

According to the quiz I am most like Mary. Can't wait to read the book to see if it's true.
As for the character that I think I'm most like I would have to say Liesel from The Book Thief, because like her, I have a passion for reading and I would do anything to get my hand on a book like her. :)


Kristin said...

I am most like Ellen. :o) Which sounds about right.
I also tweeted the give away.!/passitalong2you/status/105802467400355841
I would say the character that I am most like would be Rose from the Vampire Academy series. I am a free spirit and like to do things my way but I am very protective of those close to me.

Munnaza said...

YOU ARE LISSA: Lissa is the lead character in SHUT OUT. She’s smart, but a little neurotic. She has a thing for neatness and order. She’s a bit controlling, but also a devoted friend. She cares about her family more than anything, and she’s a big literature buff. Meet Lissa when SHUT OUT comes out on September 5th!

I tweeted this:!/yoursinfallibly/status/105833983866183681

For an extra entry:
I think I'm most like Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter books.

Cara said...

Yay! Thanks so much! :)

I don't want to be entered for another contest but I took the quiz and apparently I'm most like Lissa. I can dig it. She definitely sounds like me!

.Ambur. said...

I'm apparently the most like Ellen, and since I was lucky and snagged an ARC of Shut Out, I think I'm okay with that. haha Ellen was cool, plus she had a hot boyfriend...nothing wrong with that. ;) haha

Here's my tweet:!/AmburHostyn/status/105863605815218176

And I'm sure who I'm the most like. I definitely think I'm a lot like Hermione too...I love to read, correct people in class (although I've gotten better at resisting this temptation haha), and I'm definitely an overachiever. I also think I'm a lot like Payton from Sean Griswold's Head with the whole perfectionist aspect, but I'm definitely not as organized. haha

Thanks for this awesome giveaway, Kody! :D

Fairie said...

I took the Quiz and It said I'm like Ellen, Very true!!/Psychotnkrbell

madiha. c: said...

1. I am Chloe. D:
2. Tweeted it here -!/madihalubsyoux3/status/105872878616059905 :)
3. I think I am Mad-Eye Moody from the Harry Potter books. :D

Mairead. said...

I love character quizzes! :) Apparently I'm most like Ellen, which by the character description seems pretty accurate. :)

Tweeted here:!/Mayiread/favorites

In literary terms, damn it's hard, but I'd say I'm most like Emma Morely in David Nicchols One Day. She's cynical, has a self-deprecating sense of humour, but is loyal to the people she loves and ultimately a hopeful romantic. Plus, she wants to be a writer. :)
To be awkward, I'm also going to say that Anna from Anna and the French Kiss reminds me of myself, because I, too, am OBSESSED with film. Now, to find myself a St.Clair...*evil laugh*

Great Giveaway.

janhvi said...

I took the Character Quiz and I'm most like Lissa and from the description she pretty much sounds like me!I can't wait to read Shut Out and find more!!

i tweeted-!/justjanhvi/status/105942860020453376

As for the literary character I think I can most relate to Lena form The Caster Chronicle Series.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Bwyatt said...

I'm Ellen! :o) That was fun; I really like character quizzes as well. I tweeted:!/BritneyWyatt/status/105960094805659648 and I'm really not sure which character is most like me. I'd probably say Belly for THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY. We seem pretty alike. Thanks for the giveaway.

The Story Queen said...

I'm a Chloe too! :) Snarky and loyal... sounds about right.

Hmm. This is a pretty tough question. I'd probably say Hermione, just because I don't know of many fictional characters that read and study so much. On the other hand, I related to Evie from Paranormalcy and Supernaturally quite a bit (Clothes! Glitter! GYM CLASS IS EVIL!).


Thanks for the awesome giveaway! :)


Justine said...

I took the quiz and I'm most like Lissa! It sounds like it's true, haha.

I tweeted:!/justineamore/status/106027855242215424

And as for a character in literature, I think I am most like is Alec from The Mortal Instruments..even if I am a girl haha. He's so nice and kind of shy! He's always there for his family and friends, though. That's what I love about him. I could relate in a sense. :)

Miss Lauren said...

The quiz said I'm Lissa! :)


Linked on my blog:

I'm like Alex from Alexander Gordon Smith's Lockdown. I know he's a dude... haha. But he never lost hope (except once but he perked back up). I try my best not to lose hope, no matter what the situation.

Thanks for yet another awesome giveaway, Kody!

Julia :) said...

I got Lissa! I'm not really a control freak, nor am I organized but I am a literature buff so I guess that fits. Now I can't wait to read Shut Out to see if I'm more like her than I think. Haha.


Another character that I'm like in literature? That's easy. Katniss from The Hunger Games. We're basically twins down to the physical description. :)

Anna said...

It said I was ellen, which seems like an okay person to be. :D I tweeted here;!/peachandblue/statuses/106102653444030464
I hope to read shut out soon cause I got it early from a friend who went to ALA. :D

Hmm....a character from literature...maybe Jaycee from Gae Polisner's The Pull Of Gravity?

Kelsey said...

I got Lissa! I don't know that I totally fit the description, but it's close enough :)

I tweeted about the giveaway here:!/kelseydickson/status/106105613876072448

And as far as book characters go, I think I'm most like Lucy Snowe from Villette by Charlotte Bronte.

Thank you! :)

Jena said...

I love these types of things!!

It said I was most like: ELLEN! :) Yay, I liked her in the book! :)


Thank you so much again!! :)

Colette said...

I am most like Chloe too! And believe it or not, the description of her is SPOT ON to me! Love it!!/Lettersie17/status/106109124453998592

As for who I'm most like in all literature.. that's a great question! Believe it or not.. I'm most like Bianca from The DUFF. I related to her so much when I read the story. I'm cynical and fiercely loyal to the people I love. I'm extremely passionate, and have a hard exterior with a soft core. One of the main reasons why I loved The DUFF so much was because of her!

Thanks for all the giveaways you do! And guess what? I'm starting Shut Out tonight!! EEP! So excited!

LitzaLou said...

Took the quiz and got... Ellen! She sounds so much like me, it's scary. Interesting how that works out, eh?!/litzalou/status/106119860425207808

As for a character I'm most like... I think I'd have to go with Elinor Dashwood from Sense & Sensibility or Tessa Gray from Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series. At least for today... :)

Jenny N. said...

I took the quiz and it says that I'm most like Ellen :)


I don't know if there's a character like me. But I did remember in my review of The Duff a while back that I said I was like Biance except without all the sex.

Amanda @ The Mortal's Library said...

I got chloe (so right!)

tweet: Win a book of your choice! (hey, this isn't about #sweetly !)

Character... hmmm. I'd have to say Tessa from Clockwork Angel. Like her, I absolutely light up when around books and like to live in them. I'm also the modern day of her "proper" but kind of head strong when I need to be.

Awesome giveaway!

Geek Reader (Yesenia) said...

I took the quiz and voila, I am Kelsey.


I think that if I had to choose a book character most like me, I would choose Kelsey (wow! what a coincidence) from Tiger's Curse. She's so quiet and shy-ish, just like me.

Phil said...

I took the quiz, and I am an Ellen...the guy version of an Ellen.


And the literary character I'm most like is Russel Middlebrook from Geography Club.

Thanks for the contest!

Jen said...

According to the quiz, I'm Lissa! She does sound a bit like me... neurotic + literature? Yep, sounds about right.

I think I'd compare myself with Anna of Anna and the French Kiss. I felt like Stephanie Perkins had jumped in my head.

Here's my tweet:!/Almost_Grown_up/status/106453777015517184

You are


Lissa is the lead character in SHUT OUT. She’s smart, but a little neurotic. She has a thing for neatness and order. She’s a bit controlling, but also a devoted friend.

Alot of people are like Lissa ;]


Chen Yan Chang said...

Ooh, according to the quiz, I’m Mary!


+1 Entry: I think I’m most like Patty from Justina Chen Headley’s Nothing But the Truth (and a few white lies). I’m Asian and smart and have the same pressures from my Asian mom :P

Patrice said...

I think i am like Becky Miller from Vampire kisses series.

Sayomay said...

Im Chloe! :D
Heres me tweet!!/Ocedday
The character i think im most like is Sabine from the Dont Die Dragon Fly series. Minus seeing the future; her personality is just like mine! And funny enough my persona also changed like she did in the series.
If i won i think i would like Dark Matter Heart by Nathan Wrann.
(ive already have duff and i preordered shut out! :) )

Deserae McGlothen said...

Apparently, I'm Lissa. Lol!

In literature, though, I think I'm like Rashmi from ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. I would've said Hermoine, but Hermoine is a bit more reserved with her feelings than I am. I think Rash has more of my personality.

Thanks for the opportunity! This is awesome!!/sommertales/status/106871544155881472

Take care,

Doris said...

I'm most like Chloe too! I think her and I could be the best of friends seeing how we both are "loyal to the bone" and snarky.

Tweeted here:!/DoRis_Elysia/status/106870588747956224

Hmm, I've never thought about which character in literature I relate to. I havent found a fictional character where I can honestly say "that is so me." Mayve after Shut Out i'll change my mind, LOL.

Christi said...

The quiz said I was Lissa, which scares me a little. I know I'm organized and stuff, but I don't think I'm as bad as her!!/ChristiTeenLib/status/107055488486744064

I've never given much thought to what character I'm most like...interesting. I related a lot to Anna, the main character in Sarah Ockler's Twenty Boy Summer...

Anonymous said...

I am most like Chloe! Wow, that's pretty surprising from what I've read about her in the little preview in the back of DUFF. But I can't wait to read more about her! :)

I think I am a lot like Auden from Along for the Ride by Sara Dessen because she's cautious and mature at first glance, even though she does want to have fun.

ashelynn hetland said...

I'm most like Ellen. Awesome; can't wait to read SHUT OUT to learn more about Ellen... and of course, about Lissa and her quest. :D!/AshelynnS/status/107152859979714560

hm, i would have to say the character in literature i'm most like is Bria from WANDERLOVE.

thank you! <3

Cherry said...

Took the quiz and got Mary. After reading description I totally agree!
Tweeted @v97_
Hmm I can't think of any book character I'm exactly like but I'll say a cross between her ions from Harry potter and Tessa from infernal devices

Krystal said...

I took the quiz and got Lissa! I completely agree with the description too :) edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom

I think I am most like Meg from Carrier of the Mark. Thank you for the chance to win! I would love to read and review your book for my website and book sites :)

Unsure of who I would most be!!
