Blog Tour: What’s Your Winner’s Curse?

WinnersCurse BlogTour

Welcome to my stop on the tour for The Winner’s Curse and The Winner’s Crime!  You can find the other stops on this feature by going here.  You can find out more about the series, by going here.

The ‘Winner’s Curse’ is an economics term that means you’ve gotten what you wanted – but at too high a price.  What would you pay too much for?

What is my winner’s curse?  I think if I were going to pay too much for something, it would be a cabin in the Colorado Rockies.  I have seen very few places that are as beautiful.  The idea of a mountain cabin where I can hike or just stay inside and read….well, that is something I would pay too much for, any day!



I mean, come on!  Can you blame me?

Macmillan is generously offering up either a finished copy of The Winner’s Curse OR a finished copy of The Winner’s Crime!  You must be 13+ to enter and it’s open to residents of the US only.  Good luck!

    Sometimes I think I’d like to get some peace and quiet. No phone calls, nobody at the door, no decisions to make or obligations to fulfill . I’d probably pay too much for just a little bit of that. Thanks

  2. I would pay way too much for books, anything for my kid and travel. So if I could put them all together I would be spending too much on books while taking my daughter to the one place she wants to travel to, Italy (or even Disney World), lol. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Definitely a get-away cabin, villa, cottage. I’m thinking something in Moab, UT or in an unpopulated part of a Hawaiian island. Hmm. Or maybe a private plane or helicopter to zip me around to avoid traffic!

    I would pay a lot for things bookish! Mostly bookish events. Also, travel! I would love to travel to Europe!

  5. Books, books and more books. They’re the only thing I really love & enjoy. I also love this series. Thank you for participating in the blog tour.

  6. This is a question I always have trouble with because honestly I’d never pay too much for anything, lol. I walk around a store with my phone out because I have the calculator going, because if I don’t all the items equal some impossible number in my head and I end up getting nothing. So…I think the only thing I would pay too much for would be a procedure to get rid of my anxiety and depression. It doesn’t exist, but if it did I’d pay it in a heartbeat.

  7. I spend way too much on books. As much as I love them and devour them as I read them, I can never shake the guilt that I should have spent that $17.99 on something else…

    I would definitely spend too much on a well stocked YA library. I’d also want to get a Yamaha baby grand piano, and lastly, I’d pay a lot for an endless supply of coffee!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I already pay too much on books so that counts. But I’d also spend too much on shoes and traveling. I’d like to go to England some day. (:

    I would pay too much to backpack across Europe/ Australia! It’s been a dream of mine and I would do anything to experience that! Thank you for this amazing chance. I’m looking forward to The Winner’s Crime! 🙂

    Depressing answer – I’d pay “too much” for my health, although I’m not really sure there’s such a thing 🙂

    Buying a house was a big deal purchase for me. I think it’s the most obvious purchase that puts someone in debt.

    My whole family was taking forever to get over being sick, but my 6 year old and I took the longest. I had a doctor appointment for myself for pre-surgery. They said it was just a virus that would work itself out. I assumed my son had the same and waited for it to get better.But he didn’t. I ended up taking him in because he got winded really easily. He had pneumonia on top of a large tumor in his chest. He wasn’t getting near enough oxygen because the tumor cut off air supply to his left lung completely. He was airlifted to a Children’s hospital, where we found out he had cancer 5 days later. The beginning was really bad the doctors were scared to put him under for any tests, they didn’t think he would make it back out of the anesthesia. He made it through the test and chemo and has been tumor free for 3 months. I would pay literally any price for him to remain that way forever! It was the hardest thing in my life! Although I don’t think anything would be too much to pay for this, at the same time I don’t think it’s something p parents should have to pay for or deal with at all!
