Shoot me a mail at muchlanguage(at)gmail(dot)come with your real names and addresses.
It's 13 hours past midnight JST, but it's like I always say, It's never too late for INSANITY!!!
Since it's the final day (and I doubt I'll have time for another INSANITY!!! before next year, we're going out with a bang.
6 BOOKS UP FOR GRABS
Yes, you read that right. 6 books: the most I've ever given to a single person at once. (shudders to think of the next INSANITY!!!)
The books I have pictured are some of my faves for the year.
Chasing a semi-friend across the country, Lillian and Josh explore their almost-relationship. This book struck a chord for me because it lived on the line between friendships and "more".
The only reason I picked up this book was because I follow Beth's blog. I'm not a sci-fi fan, and I was convinced I wouldn't like it. I'm glad to say I was wrong. ACROSS THE UNIVERSE sent me on a mission to find more character-driven sci-fi.
I found FAIRY TALE FAIL purely by accident.The name pulled me in, and I'm glad it did, because I got a great book, and an awesome tweep (twitter friend) out of the deal. FTF is an adult book for people like me, who still love a fairy tale, and would rather live in that world than the real one.
I don't know what to say about WASTED, except that the concept still haunts me. A boy decides to flip a coin and abide by whatever it decides. Deep stuff.
I can not even put into words how much I love this book. I've spoken about my uncomfortable relationship with sex before. What I love about this book is the way it deals with sex. Often, we see YA with beautiful relationships involving sex, and almost as often it is the root of some evil. But it's rare in YA that sex just is. And sometimes, that's the way it is.
Now if you've been counting, you'll notice that's only 5 books. No, my brain isn't that fried from school festival preparations. The 6th book is WINNER'S CHOICE. $20 US limit and available on Amazon (for the US and Pakistan) or Book Depository (for everybody else).
I've been saying it all week. Today you win by sending me your list of 10 books for the 100 books every writer should read.
To everyone, follower or no.
Open until SATURDAY 11.59 pm EST
The winner will be announced on Monday if I wake up after my crazy weekend. lol.
