possession 2 The Most Fun EVER

I am freaking out about next week. You know what happens next week?

POSSESSION by my good friend Elana Johnson comes out!! (And I am flying to Utah for her Launch Party)

I’m so happy for her–it’s awesome to see your friend’s dream come true. And you guys know me–when I’m happy, I like to give things away! (And apparently I like to get on planes– there better not be snakes.)

So: help me show Elana some love and celebrate her book’s release! All next week, we’re hosting a mini-love-tour for Elana and POSSESSION–with prizes every single day. We’re pulling out all the stops: there’s vlogs and blogs and Twitter and more!

We have tons of copies of POSSESSION to give away–all signed by our amazing Elana (and since Shannon contacted her publicist, this is all one big huge surprise for Elana!)

Meanwhile, we really want to get the word out to people about Elana, her book, and this launch extravaganza! So, to entice you to share the love, we have FIVE SIGNED COPIES OF POSSESSION to give to people who spread the word about POSSESSION. There are LOTS of ways to win–and everything you do garners you more entries!

Bookanistas: Invincible Summer Made Me Smile–And Cry!

Hello Bookanistas! It’s Thursday and that means all over the internet authors are going wild for YA books.

Me? I’m laughing, I’m crying– I’m throwing a book across the room in frustration and then running after it because I just couldn’t put down Hannah Moskowitz’s Invincible Summer.

invinciblesummercover 200x300 Bookanistas: Invincible Summer Made Me Smile  And Cry!

It’s a story of a boy and his love of the beach. That sounds so simple, right? WRONG– It’s complicated, it’s twisty, and it’s sand between your toes gritty. Sometimes you read characters that are so real you feel like you know them. This is exactly that kind of story. Anyone who doesn’t read it is missing out on making new friends.

You don’t want to miss out, do you?

I didn’t think so. Go buy this book. Right now.

And while you’re at it… don’t miss out on all the other awesome the Bookanistas read this week.Bookanistas logo 138x300 Bookanistas: Invincible Summer Made Me Smile  And Cry!

Bookanistas: I totally fell for FALLING UNDER

“Everything changed the night I saw a burning man fall from the sky.”

That’s how the first line of Gwen Hayes’ FALLING UNDER starts, and frankly, that’s all you need to know–because DUDE is that not the perfect first sentence?

I’ll pause while you go back and read it again… and again.

I’m having trouble writing a review that does this book justice– it’s simply enchanting. You need to read it, and if you don’t– well, I’m just not so sure we can still be friends. :)
