It's summer, and hopefully you are all reading. Right? To enter this contest, all you have to do is recommend a great summer read in the comments section of this post. At the end of the month (July 31st) I will randomly select one of the book reviewers and send them a free book.
There are five possible prizes (winner can chose which book they want). So to start things off, I'll tell you why these five books are all great summer reads.
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert is a travel memoir. So if your summer vacation doesn't consist of anything more exciting than a trip to the local pool, you can sit and read about Gilberts year in Italy, India, and Indonesia while you lounge.
Ordinary Ghosts by Eireann Corrigan is not a typical summer read. But it is one of the available prize books. If you are trying to escape the heat, reading about a high school boy who breaks into his prep school over Christmas break might be fun. A little snow never hurt anyone in August.
Eight Grade Bites by Heather Brewer is a great YA Paranormal book that all the kids should be reading this summer. It is the first book in the Vladimir Tod series. The final book in the series comes out in September. So reading the first four books this August is practically a must. BTW, when it comes to teen vampires, I like Vlad way more than Edward, even if the entire world is watching Eclipse this weekend.
The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love by Jill Conner Browne is the perfect beach read. It is HILARIOUS! These fallen southern belle's will make you laugh until your sides split open.
Dramarama by E. Lockhart takes place at camp, how much more of a summer read do you want? The high spirited teens who spend their summer at drama camp are sure to entertain, even if your spending your summer off the stage.
So what book do you recommend? Let me know any you may win one of these.
