Jar of ARCs Giveaway (2)

Hey guys! So I don't know about you but I am waaaay behind on my ARCs and my TBR just continues to grow exponentially. My list of ARCs is always there in the back of my mind and my NetGalley score is nothing but an eyesore.  When I first joined NetGalley in 2011 I was not very smart with it and requested more books than I was able to keep up with. (Note: not all ARCs featured here will be from NetGalley. Some were previously provided by authors, publishers, etc.) Since it's way past time to tackle these books, I've decided to start my Jar of ARCs.
Beginning NetGalley Score: 10%
Current Netgalley Score: 13%

So this is how it's gonna work. Each time I randomly pull a new book from my Jar of ARCs, I will give one of of you guys the chance to win either an eBook copy of the book I chose or a $5.00 Gift Card.

I'm actually out of town at the moment and had to have my mom pick out a paper! So I recycled these images from when I last drew one out. ;)

So the book up for grabs today is...
Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield
Bellman & Black is a heart-thumpingly perfect ghost story, beautifully and irresistibly written, its ratcheting tension exquisitely calibrated line by line. Its hero is William Bellman, who, as a boy of 10, killed a shiny black rook with a catapult, and who grew up to be someone, his neighbours think, who "could go to the good or the bad." And indeed, although William Bellman's life at first seems blessed—he has a happy marriage to a beautiful woman, becomes father to a brood of bright, strong children, and thrives in business—one by one, people around him die. And at each funeral, he is startled to see a strange man in black, smiling at him. At first, the dead are distant relatives, but eventually his own children die, and then his wife, leaving behind only one child, his favourite, Dora. Unhinged by grief, William gets drunk and stumbles to his wife's fresh grave—and who should be there waiting, but the smiling stranger in black. The stranger has a proposition for William—a mysterious business called "Bellman & Black" . . .

No cheating.
