Enter to be an END IS HERE Newbie on Epic Reads!

We have a sooper sekret (it’s so super and so secret that we HAVE to misspell) upcoming promotion called THE END IS HERE that requires the reading, blogging and gabbing talents of a few epic members of our community. (Link to the application is at the bottom of this post!)

Here’s the deal: We are looking for avid readers who are newbies to a few of our hot series that are ending this winter.


new•bie:   /ˈn(y)o͞obē/
1. Someone who is a member of the Epic Reads community. (Wait, seriously? You haven’t signed up as a member here yet? Get on that already!)

2. Someone who has not read a single book in the entire series.

3. Someone who, if selected, is willing to binge read ALL of the books in the series he/she is assigned.

4. Someone who is willing to chronicle their reading journey for us in the form of blog posts, tweets, interpretive dance (maybe), forum posts, puppet theater (also, maybe).

5. Someone who, if chosen, is willing to become an advocate for that series and get other newbies to also binge read the series.


So, curious to know what series we are talking about? Well, take a gander at the image above or read through the list below:

Delirium by Lauren Oliver (Delirium, Pandemonium, Requiem)
Gone by Michael Grant (Gone, Hunger, Lies, Plague, Fear, Light)
Eve by Anna Carey (Eve, Once, Rise)
Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber (Once in a Full Moon, Magic of the Moonlight, Full Moon Kisses)
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand (Unearthly, Hallowed, Boundless)
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton (Angelfire, Wings of the Wicked, Shadows in the Silence)
A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford (A Touch Mortal, A Touch Morbid, A Touch Menacing)


Are there any series on this list you’re a complete newbie to? If yes, are any of those series ones you’re interested in starting and finishing in an all out binge read-a-thon? If yes, it’s time for you to apply to be an “End is Here” Newbie!



**Applications will close end of day on Thursday, November 29th, 2012**


Stay tuned for more info and updates and how EVERYONE can participate in our END IS HERE promotion soon!

    I’ve read atleast the first book in all of those series.

    @HaleyG – Don’t worry, you can still participate! We’re going to be doing a community-wide read-a-thon for all of the series before their final books come out!

    Would y’all supply the books? And how long would I have to read them? I haven’t read any of the above.

    I’ve only read one book in two of the seven series, Angelfire and Eve. I know, I am way behind on all the awesome Harper titles (bad reader).

    This definitely sounds like an interesting way to celebrate the ending of all these great sounding series. =)

    This is an amazing idea. Just signed up. *crossing my fingers*

    This great!!! I have heard so many good things about those series, and I hope that can be an “End is Here Newbie”, i just filled out the application!!! *fingers-crossed*
    The only one have read out if them is Delirium.

  8. November 27, 2012 | 3:28 am

    Filled out my application! Woooo!

  9. November 27, 2012 | 8:32 am

    Are the books gonna be provided? What if we can’t get the books ourselves? If the books are provided, is this international?

    Signing up for this! It’s AMAZING! :) Just in time for winter break too! I could so do this! Most of these books I have but haven’t been able to read them xD Eeep! EXCITING!

  11. November 27, 2012 | 6:33 pm

    I just signed up! *crossing fingers* What a great way to get people into (new) ending series! Good luck to all the applicants!

  12. November 27, 2012 | 7:31 pm

    I still have to read Pandemonium, Fear, Once, Magic of the Moonlight, and a Touch Morbid. And of course the books that arn’t out yet. I actually own all the books in all the series mentioned (that came out). Except… Lies by Micheal Grant

    You skipped the Body Finder series and Die For Me. I’ve read those too.
    I’ll do a readathon for Girl of Fire and Thorns and Crown of Embers even if book 3 is still far away. I feel like I’m missing out on that epic fantasy.

  13. November 27, 2012 | 9:49 pm

    Oh cheese…
    I’m afraid that I *cough* *cough* failed the application :O

  14. November 28, 2012 | 12:18 am

    I applied too! {sprinkles magic faerie dust!}
    Can’t wait to see how things will turn out!
    Good luck to all :)

    I filled out the application and failed to mention that you can read more of my writing samples on where I have been on the CD review staff (volunteer position) for over a year.

  16. November 28, 2012 | 3:26 pm

    I applied :) This is exciting….I haven’t read any of those series yet and a few of them are on my TBR list already. Good luck to everyone :)

  17. November 28, 2012 | 6:38 pm

    I seriously cannot wait for this! :)

  18. November 29, 2012 | 12:21 am

    So excited for this!! Either way I’m spending the end of days in the Mayan Riviera :D

  19. November 29, 2012 | 11:16 pm

    What a fantastic idea! I would LOVE to be part of this but unfortunately I think I’m too stacked up with books. I still need to read the Angelfire and Hallowed series! Ah! So many books!

  20. November 30, 2012 | 12:23 am

    What if there is only one series you haven’t read? Is there a way that you can only apply for one series?
