Each week Crazy For Books hosts a meme designed to help us passionate book bloggers to get to meet and support one another. Today, for the first time, she added the twist of answering a particular question that she posed. Normally, I’d be more than happy to agree to this “revealing” of myself…to some degree anyway. However, if I answer this question, I’d be giving away too much for a post that I’d already planned for another blog. Stay tuned for this guest post, which I’ll announce as soon as it’s up.
Instead, I’m just going to do my regular thing here on the hop: give you a run down of what I’ve got going on with my site. Last week I posted of the first book in a YA series that will be winding down later this summer. Have any guesses? If you guessed The Hunger Games, then you’re absolutely correct. I LOVED this book, and if you check out my review, I think that you’ll get as excited as I am about it. Another thing that my Canadian readers will LOVE is my Reaping Day Giveaway, in which anyone with a Canadian address stands to win a paperback copy of TheHungerGames. This contest closes at 8pm on Wednesday, July 14th, but get your entries in early to ensure you chance at winning.
Next, if you haven’t seen it yet, then my American and Canadian readers still have a chance to enter another great little If I Stay contest that I have available on my site until 11:59pm on Friday, July 9th. If you haven’t read Gayle Forman‘s best-selling novel, then you NEED to enter this contest. I just happen to have an extra copy, so I want to pass on the IfIStay goodness to one lucky Twitter follower.
Oh…and one more thing, a couple of great YA authors just celebrated their book birthdays yesterday, while I was celebrating Canada Day, so I’d love to give them a big shout out. First, Mitali Perkins‘ novel Bamboo People is what I called a novel for both “voracious and reluctant readers” and features two male protagonists, so if you have some male teens who like to read, this may just be the book for them. Second, Sarah Darer Littman‘s second YA novel, Life, After will be reviewed on YA Book Shelf shortly. Keep a look out for it!
Have a great holiday weekend whether you’re celebrating Canada Day like I was or Independence Day, and if you’re celebrating neither of those, just have a great weekend! Happy reading!
