Contest - Win Prophecy of the Sisters!

Alright everyone, since I have reached (and passed) 25 followers, I'm going to hold my first contest! And since I have recently won the Swag Bag contest over at Michelle Zink's site for having found the book in stores, I thought it would make a good giveaway!

Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
(Released officially August 1st, but being found daily in bookstores!)

Sixteen-year-old Lia Milthorpe and her twin sister Alice have just become orphans, and, as Lia discovers, they have also become enemies. The twins are part of an ancient prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other. To escape from a dark fate and to remain in the arms of her beloved boyfriend James, Lia must end the prophecy before her sister does. Only then will she understand the mysterious circumstances of her parents' deaths, the true meaning of the strange mark branded on her wrist, and the lengths to which her sister will go to defeat her. Debut novelist Michelle Zink takes readers on an unforgettable journey where one sister's fateful decision could have an impact of Biblical proportions. Prophecy of the Sisters is the first of three books.

Oooh, I've been wanting to read this book ever since I've read this review (I left the last comment, used a different username back then but the profile's the same).

This is the first contest I've ever entered (they're usually for US residents only) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!! So excited!!!

Personally, I think I'm most looking forward to Life Swap by Abby McDonald - it has already been published in the US as Sophmore Switch, but I insist on waiting for the UK edition (out in September) because I prefer both the cover and the title (yes, I'm vain like that, heh).

Right, so that's the first condition for entering the contest and I hope to win some extra points (see below):
