    A few months ago you came to my school (I got my slated book signed). Then I started reading slated, I loved it! Then I read fractured- which I also was amazed by. And finally I am coming right to the end of Shattered, and now I can't wait to read contagion, even though it's a different series I am still hyped! I am sooo exited and can't wait to order! Thanks for giving me a great trilogy to read, and I'll be looking forward to your next book!

    (P.S: The Slated trilogy is AMAZING!!!)

    Last Year, when I was visiting my Mum, I bought the Slated Book at a Bookstore. I fell in Love with it and Your writing Style and proceeded to buy every other Book I could find.
    Since I think I have all Your Books that were already puplished, I would also like to have Your new one. �

    Ever since I heard that you were releasing a new book, I've been beside myself with excitment! I've loved every single one of your books and I can't wait to read Contagion!

    Last Year I met you at the Frankfurt Bookfair and since than I am waiting for a new Book to come.
    I seriously can't wait for the new Book and I probably won't wait for it till it's published in German because I can't wait :D
    Slated is one of my favorites.
    I hope you have a nice day (and of course everyone who reads this :D)

    In 2013 my friend got me Slated for my birthday and I thought the book was fantastic. I had to wait months to read the second book and more than a year for the third book to be released here in Brazil. and it was worth waiting! I loved that trilogy and I promised myself I'd read everything you wrote and for me it would be a honour to read your new book in the original language, not the brazilian portuguese version. Love from Brazil.

    Hi, I would really like to win the book CONTAGION because I've loved reading your slated triology and I am interested to read an exiting story of you again!

    Cheers, Claudia

    Nele (Saturday, 22 April 2017 15:14)

    I remember when I went to that bookstore with a friend and I asked her:"Which one shall I buy?" holding up two books. She pointed to the one in my left hand. I started reading it on the way home and just after finishing it I read it a second time. This book was 'Slated'. After having read all the other books by Teri (I have pre-ordered all of them because I couldn't wait) I can now tell you proudly: "I am in love with Teri Terry's writing!"
    If she wrote a book about how to use a hammer I'd buy it.
    I am looking forward for 'contagion' and I am truly excited.
    I'm waiting like a hungry wolf for the new book.
    Yours, Nele

    From Slated to The book of lies- I have been waiting at the book shop on the release date of your books. I love each and everyobe of them. They have got me through so much- exams, health problems and the care system. They have been my wee world of distraction where I can wisk into another world, be another person and face different problems just for a few hours or days. I really need to be somewhere else and this new book, im sure will provide me solitude and another worldwind of adventure. No book wisks me aeay like yours Teri Terry!! :)

    Hi! You visited my school a couple weeks ago and I was so excited to meet you! When you read a section from your new book contagion I couldn't wait to purchase it. I loved the slated series and it has managed to sneek up to the list of my favourite books.
    I love writing myself and reading your books have inspired me to write more!
    I have ordered mind games and I can't wait to read it. Please keep writing, I enjoy your books so much!
    I love cats too! � �

    Hey teri terry.
    I just found out about the give away and was absolutly thrilled. My mon and I have loved reading your books, since I by chance got my hands on 'slated' we have always been forward to what you will write next.
    Other than that, I am a student and my exams are soon coming up, so it would be absoloutly amazing to have something else and more 'fun' to read in the evenings, while relaxing after studying math for a whole day.

    This is a gratis opportunity.
    I'm waiting for this book since you told us about it on the Frankfurt Bookfair last year.
    I love all your books and this is a big chance to be one of the first to read it.
    So maybe I'm one of the lucky ones.
    This would be really awesome!!!

    Lucy Rose (Friday, 21 April 2017 21:05)

    I would be thrilled to win because I've loved Teri Terry's books since the fist time I read Slated years ago, which ended up motivating me to run a half marathon to Book of Lies, which got me through my last uni exams. The books have made me laugh out loud and cry on the train and I been given many a funny book. I love the writing, the covers and the girl power! I would love to win a copy so I can read it before the week my finals start too rather than staying up until 2pm the night before reading again. Love your books Teri! x

    Harvey Finch (Friday, 21 April 2017 20:48)

    OMG looks like a great book! Read all of your books. I absolutely adore your works it would be amazing to win as I am running quite short on money at the moment and I really need something to read. You have changed my ways of writing which is leading my to get high level 8's in my exams. To read another one of your books would inspire me to become an author just like you before you I read Sophie McKenzie . Your writing is so much more intriguing than hers please don't tell her I said this! Please contact me via email if I win - xxharveyf2004xx@gmail.com

    I would love to win this book, because I'm from Brazil and only Slated Trilogy and Mind Games was released here, I loved both series, but especially Mind Games ❤
    Love you and your work, wish you the best!

    Marie DUBSKY (Friday, 21 April 2017 20:34)

    Hello !
    I'm a school librarian and I bought the Slated trilogy for my students, but I was the first one to read it, and love it ! I'm now a fan of your books and buy everyone of them, for the school, and for me !

  • #48

    Viktoria Silke Sofia Strandbygaard (Friday, 21 April 2017 19:43)

    I've already read the Slated triology and I LOVE IT! It take so much time for books to get published here, in Denmark - the book of lies just came today and I'm really looking forward to read it. It would be amazing to be able to read Contagion soon:))

  • #47

    Okky Arista Dinda (Friday, 21 April 2017 19:15)

    Why I'd like to win?
    The only reason, because I'm not sure Contagion will publish in Indonesian edition (I'm glad Slated Trilogy came with Indonesian edition too and knew about you), that makes me wait for two or three months until your new book (english edition) come out in my local book store. And I think I can't wait too long.
    And I still can't move on from Slated Trilogy and Book of Lies, those books change the way I feel about something thrilling not only about gun and war, also about our demon. Surely Slated change my writing too.
    God, please I want Contagion.

    I've already read the slated trilogy (in german) and I'd LOVE to read contagion in the original words :)

    ANDREASM (Friday, 21 April 2017 19:00)

    Hi Terry,

    I am challenging my luck to be one of the 2 persons to be drawn.
    Why? I am just looking forward to another thrilling book as slated. The book of lies was a bit too let's say mystic in my opinion. Therefore I am still on research.

    Helen Palmer (Friday, 21 April 2017 18:59)

    I'd love to win a copy because I adore your books and your writing style. I love that you set the Slated trilogy and Book of Lies in the UK, because we are seriously under-represented in modern books, especially YA! I guess I'm 'feverishly' awaiting Contagion! (Too much?!)

    Dominique Scoles (Friday, 21 April 2017 17:32)

    I would love to win this book as I have read all of Teri's book, enjoyed and loved them to pieces! I loved selling them to people in Waterstones. She is one of my favorite authors, I love recommending her books to people and I hope one day to be a slither as good an author as her. So excited to see what she does next! Thank you for this giveaway!
