To my followers, I am happy to present a very awesome opportunity


One lucky winner receives a Beach Bound prize pack, including a tote bag and copies of Moonglass and We’ll Always Have Summer!

MOONGLASS by Jessi Kirby
When Anna was little, she and her mother used to search for sea glass, but since they looked at night, they called it moonglass. Now, ten years after her mother's mysterious death, her father is working as head lifeguard on the same beach where her mother grew up and her parents first met and fell in love. Reluctant to get close to anyone (including her father) and not pleased about having to start at a new school, Anna begins to spend more time alone, running the length of the beach and wondering about who her mother really was. After meeting a lifeguard named Tyler, she slowly lets her guard down and together they start exploring the abandoned houses that dot the beach. But when learning more about her mother's past leads to a painful discovery, Anna must reconcile her desire for solitude with ultimately accepting the love of her family and friends. Moonglass is a dazzling debut from an undeniable talent.

We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
Jenny Han's bestselling trilogy, which includes The Summer I Turned Pretty and It's Not Summer Without You, concludes with an impossible choice in We'll Always Have Summer. Belly has only ever been in love with two boys, both with the last name Fisher. And after being with Jeremiah for the last two years, she's almost positive he is her soul mate. Almost. Conrad has not gotten over the mistake he made when he let Belly go even as Jeremiah has always known that Belly is the girl for him. So when Belly and Jeremiah decide to make things forever, Conrad realizes that it's now or never--tell Belly he loves her, or lose her for good. Belly will have to confront her feelings for Jeremiah and Conrad and face a truth she has possibly always known: she will have to break one of their hearts.

I've heard nothing but GREAT things about both books, but have had to respect my budget for the last couple of months.... Hopefully I get lucky with this giveaway :) *crosses fingers* thanks for hosting it!

I really can't wait to read both of these books. Just some lovely contemporary fiction is a nice break from the overloaded paranormal world.

I'd like to read them as I'm always on the look out for new books and authors that I can fall in love with. As I've heard good things about both, I'd love to try them out.

ahhh both of the books sound amazing. I absolutely loved The Summer I Turned Pretty Series and Moonglass looks equally as good. I also love the cover for Moonglass. The cover of Moonglass makes me feel calm and peaceful. This is an awesome giveaway.

Both of these books sounds amazing! And the cover of Moonglass, wow. Even if I didn't know what that book was about I would snatch it off the shelves just because of that beautiful cover. Thanks for this awesome give away. You rock!

Theresa M wrote: June 13, 2011 at 1:08 PM

I'm dying to read these books because they both seem like they've got plenty of romance and drama, which always makes for a good book in my opinion. :)Especially Moonglass - I'm already curious about the MC's mother. Thanks for the great giveaway!

MOONGLASS is a subtle tale of love and loss and self-discovery. I found myself falling in love with Tyler Evans right along with Anna. I think fans of Jesse really enjoy this book.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
