We are excited to be giving away a prize package including a signed copy of Hourglass (our Book of the Month), a pin, and poster!  One thing you might have noticed about Hourglass is that you don’t want to put the book down once you’ve started reading!  You might have also decided you’d like to SMACK (kiss and/or hit) one or more of the characters!

To enter the contest all you have to do is cast your favorite character, and let us know what kind of SMACKING-down you want to do with them!  Leave your answer in the Comments below or email them (if you’re bashful) to contest@twilightseriestheories.com.  The contest starts today (Thursday, September 15, 2011) and we will choose a winner at random on Thursday, September 29, 2011, at midnight.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.

    I would love to SMACK Kaleb, but SMACK lips with Michael, ha! Dibs!

  2. An says:

    It will be a very difficult choice to choose between smacking (lips that is) with either Michael or Kaleb. As of now, I’m going Michael. That might change tomorrow and Kaleb will be on top.

  3. Amber says:

    Kaleb needs alot more than a SMCK he needs a full blown kick in the a##!!!! And as for Micheal i would like to do more than Smack lip’s ;)

  4. Kristina says:

    I would love to Smack (lips) with Michael. (hahah. I started to type Kaleb! Hmm. Is my brain trying to tell me something?)

  5. Bree Castro says:

    I would love to smack with the character of jack mentioned form one of the links above here. I read about him and he seems so interesting. I like that hes described to protect the main character. I would so smack him. And I would cast robert pattinson as him , because he seems to fit the character description of jack.

  6. Maria says:

    My favorite character is Michael! And i think the only kind of smacking any girl would want to do with him is the kissing kind! He is so sweet (and hot)!

  7. Dovile says:

    My favorite is Michale too! And I’d cast Jared Padalecki from Supernatural as him.

  8. Amanda says:

    Absolutely love Michael! Chad Michael Murray would be great for his role. He is so sweet (both of them)!!

  9. Hafsah says:

    I think I would end up smacking myself because I haven’t read the book yet. But I’ll say I’ll smack the main character, simply because I know she’ll make a lot of mistakes! And I’m not sure who I’ll cast for Emerson… maybe Emma Watson? I have no idea who she’s like yet!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. Jay A says:

    KALEB hands down! Especially if hes cast as Ian Somerhalder (id settle for a younger look-alike too)
    Id smack him anywhere :)
    hmm although he might be a bit young but….WHO CARES!!??!!

  11. I think I would smack (as in slap) Michael, b/c hot guys are always fun to smack. I’ll leave the lip-smacking to Em. :P

  12. adris says:

    I would definitely give Kaleb a smack on the lips ;) and I would cast the lovely, daring Emerson as Emma Stone with blonde hair and somehow shorter.

  13. Book Sp(l)ot Reviews says:

    Id smack Kaleb – however you want to interpret that! – and hmmm, I think I might cast.Taylor Lautner. He might not be old enough, but hey, movies take a bit ;)
