Giveaway Pack: Katie Finn’s TOP 8 and WHAT’S YOUR ST@TUS?

It’s giveaway time once more! Courtesy of Point, I have one set of author Katie Finn’s young adult novels to award one lucky winner from the U.S.

About 2008’s Top 8, which has made its way into my overflowing to-be-read stack:

Madison MacDonald is seriously freaking out.

Madison MacDonald
Putnam, CT
Status: Single?

About Me:
Everything in my life was working out. I had my three best friends, a brand-new boyfriend, and the lead in the school play. Aside from that history paper I hadn’t started, things felt perfect. Then I returned from spring break to find my Friendverse profile hacked. Someone clearly out to ruin me had spilled the most damaging secrets — AND posted the worst photos of me ever taken — online. Now my boyfriend and I are broken up, half the school hates me, and I’m in deep trouble.

Get my boyfriend back, figure out who could have done this, and clear my name!
Also, pass history.

And if that isn’t enough, a copy of its newly-released sequel, What’s Your St@tus?, is also up for grabs in the same pack:

mad_mac Nate and I have been together for two months, and it’s wonderful! Life is good!

mad_mac Well, except for the fact that I still might be failing history.

mad_mac And I no longer have a BFF.

mad_mac But aside from those things!

mad_mac Okay. So, um, apparently I’ve just been put in charge of the school’s priceless heirloom.

mad_mac And the assistant headmaster has a vendetta against me.

mad_mac And it seems I’m being blackmailed.

mad_mac Gathering together a crew. I’m going to try and pull off a heist. Without getting caught. Or expelled. Or arrested.

mad_mac Also, I think I may have just accidentally wrecked my relationship. . . .

Madison MacDonald is trying not to panic.

Even though I’m no longer so concerned about BFFs (or am I?), the series sounds light, fun and entertaining. Lord knows I spend enough time online to relate to the exploits of an avid Facebooker/Twitterer.

So, friends, great news: I’m turning 25 on July 18. It’s sure to be a day filled with laughter, photo-taking, cupcakes — and me sobbing about how I’m now a quarter-century old, and the same age my parents were when I was born.

Existential crisis, party of one?

But here’s a little bright spot for you: I’m feeling all glowy and affectionate right now, awash in the love of family, friends and good ol’ Spence. And since I’ll be getting gifts to commemorate the shiny anniversary of my birth, why shouldn’t you?

So, if you win, I’m going to buy you a book. Any one book you like, up to $25 (’cause I’ll be 25! Get it?), to be sent anywhere in the world that The Book Depository can reach.

GIVEAWAY: Gayle Forman’s IF I STAY

if_i_stayA new giveaway — just in time for the holidays! I have one hardcover copy of Gayle Forman’s If I Stay a very moving young adult novel — up for grabs.

You’ve probably heard rumblings about this book all over the blogosphere — and right here on write meg!, too. I reviewed the book in November and have thought about it many times since.

If I Stay is the story of 17-year-old Mia, the lone survivor of a car crash that claimed the lives of her family one snowy day in Oregon. As she moves in and out of consciousness following the accident, she realizes she’s caught in between two worlds — and that she has a choice. Does she leave this world to rejoin her family, giving up every dream and hope her parents helped her develop, or does she return to a life without them?

If it sounds powerful, that’s because it is. And now you can read it too!

The contest runs through 12 p.m. (noon) on Wednesday, Dec. 23. I will select one person by chance through and will email the winner to let them know! Your book will be in the mail after the holidays. (Lord knows I won’t be there on Christmas Eve — sorry!)
