3 Willows- CONTEST!

This contest has ended.

Pretty exciting news to report, Ann Brashares recently wrote a new novel,
3 Willows, which will be out in stores on January 13th. Even better though, just 2 days after it’s release, on the 15th, Ann herself will be coming down to Miami for an event! This is pretty big stuff going on. So how can this get any better?

With the first ever
YAthenaeum Book Giveaway Contest!

We here at Yathenaeum got our hands on 3 Advanced Reader Copies of Ann Brashares’
3 Willows. That’s right, THREE! And we want to hear from you why you think you should have one! But we also like to have fun with out contests, so we want you to be creative.

So here’s the catch. You must tell us why you deserve a copy of
3 Willows. In a haiku.

What’s a haiku? A haiku is an un-rhymed poem having three lines containing five, seven, and five syllables respectively.

Here is an example:
Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense
-Rolf Nelson

So don’t worry if your entry doesn’t make sense, we like those best anyway!

  • Entry must either be submitted as a comment below or e-mailed to us at
  • Entry MUST be a haiku, following the 5-7-5 rule.
  • Name & E-mail required with entry.
  • Contestants are limited to 1 entry.
  • Deadline is Friday, January 9th 7:00 p.m. Eastern.
  • No cheating/copying or anything along those lines.
  • Have fun!

Top 3 entries will each receive:
  • 1: Advanced Reader Copy of 3 Willows by Ann Brashares

But here’s our little added bonus! We will try to have your book arrive as soon as possible. But, if you think you can wait a few days, we can have your copy signed & personalized by Ann herself! This is up to you of course, but we will need a reply no later than 12:00 p.m. Eastern on the 10th, this is to ensure those who want their copy early get it fast.

Winners will be announced Friday January 9th at 10:00 p.m. Eastern or later based on judge deliberation.
