Hello everyone. -waves-
I am participating in the YA Book Carnival hosted by Shooting Star Mag! This is going to be so exciting.
I recently had a chance to meet Cathy Cassidy, author of Ginger Snaps, Dizzy, Indigo Blue, Driftwood, Scarlett, Lucky Star, Sundae Girl and her latest book, Angel Cake. She has this lovely British accent (I think it’s British) and she was so sweet.
I am giving away two books and a notebook.
1st place: Sundae Girl by Cathy Cassidy (signed) and a notebook
1st Runner up: Driftwood by Cathy Cassidy (signed)
2nd Runner up: two bookmarks (not related to Cathy Cassidy)
View the signed copy of Sundae Girl.
View the signed copy of Dirtwood.
View the notebook (not signed).
This is an international giveaway. It ends July 1st.

Edit: The question is now up on www.twitter.com/readingthisbook! You have one week to send me your answers.
You have read my interview with Julie, and now, we have the contest to win Black Box! =)
Black Box synopsis: When Dora, Elena’s older sister, is diagnosed with depression and has to be admitted to the hospital, Elena can’t seem to make sense of their lives anymore. At school, the only people who acknowledge Elena are Dora’s friends and Jimmy Zenk—who failed at least one grade and wears black every day of the week. And at home, Elena’s parents keep arguing with each other. Elena will do anything to help her sister get better and get their lives back to normal—even when the responsibility becomes too much to bear.
Sounds good? Now’s your chance to win it –signed!
The question will be posted on Twitter on Friday May 15, 9:45 AM Eastern Time. You have one week to reply to my question on Twitter with the correct answer. Remember to address your tweet to @readingthisbook.
Where can I find the answer?
Read the interview I did with Julie. =]
I’ll be drawing the name from a bag on May 22nd.
What’s the catch?
My Twitter updates are protected. Which means you have to follow me or you can’t answer the question! And you have to read the interview I did with Julie. ;D

US residents only (I’m sorry international peeps). But I’m having a contest for international people soon. Stay tuned! Hopefully next week.
I held a mini contest a while back whereby you gave Stephanie Hale your birthday wishes and you are entered to win A Map of the Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell (not sure whether pb or hc). But there are only five entries and I decided to give you another chance to win. This will not happen again. 😛 Those who commented here are already entered so no worries.
Recommend a book to me that is not a love story. Something sad please. Can be family issues, disorders, anything! But the book has to be out in paperback.
When commenting please put your comment number. Example:
I strongly recommend….
Yes, start from comment #6!
US residents only, winners announced tomorrow (April 12).
Next month’s contests to look out for: Twitter contest!
And thanks for all the suggestions (keep ’em coming)! Would like to hear opinions of Sarah Dessen. 😉
Ahh my brain isn’t working well because of the migraine. If you got an email saying the contest ends Friday 13th April, I meant 10th April! It’s not wise to be blogging and emailling with a killer migraine and homework not done.
SCROLL BELOW FOR THE PART THREE INTERVIEWS.
Linda Gerber is giving away a signed ARC of DEATH BY DENIM along with this stylin’ skull and crossbones necklace. But there’s more, a basket of books – which will include a signed set of all three DEATH BY books – an iPod Shuffle, iTunes gift card and more! How exciting!
All you have to do is design and decorate anything denim and send the picture to Linda!
Hurry! Contest ends May 14, 2009.
