On to the contest!
I thought I was in for another post-zombie apocalypse story (not that there's anything wrong with that!) but the world Grant sets up is very unique and not the same old setting I was expecting. I really enjoyed the first two books and just started the final book this week. Don't just take my word that the book is good, right now on Amazon it has an average of 4.5 out of 5 from 261 reviews! I don't want to give anything away, so here's a blurb from Feed:
In 2014, two experimental viruses—one a genetically engineered flu strain intended to act as a cure for the common cold, and the other a cancer-killing strain—escaped the lab and combined to form a single airborne pathogen that swept around the world in a matter of days. It cured cancer. It stopped a thousand cold and flu viruses in their tracks.So, if this grabs ya, go ahead and enter below.

It raised the dead.
Millions died in the chaos that followed. The summer of 2014 was dubbed "The Rising," and only the lessons learned from a thousand zombie movies allowed mankind to survive. Even then, the world was changed forever. The mainstream media fell, Internet news acquired an undeniable new legitimacy, and the CDC rose to a new level of power.
Set twenty years after the Rising, the Newsflesh trilogy follows a team of bloggers, led by Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they search for the brutal truths behind the infection.
Contest runs until 11:59pm Eastern, July 21 and is only open to those in the US.
Winner will be notified and posted here on the following day.
