First Book Give Away! An Impossible Love Affair

Time to celebrate the first month of blogging on Athena's YA Book Reviews! It's time for the first official book give away! I hope to have a book give away about once a month (sorry I can't do more because I have 3 kids and all my funds go to them).

So, the book give away for June is Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet. Although, the novel is not YA, it reads like YA and deals with an impossible romance with someone many of us know during childhood--an imaginary friend.

What do you need to do? You need to write a creative and original response to the following question/topic and post it as a comment to this blog entry using less than 20 lines...good luck!

Topic: How can love surpass all boundaries?

I will read all the entries and choose the winner subjectively based on the response. I'm a writer and I love to read other people's ideas! The winner will be notified by the last weekend of June.

One last thing...make sure you list your e-mail, so that I can contact you if your response is chosen as the winning entry. Also, include your name and mailing address. Sorry, but the book give away is limited to residents of the US.



How can love surpass all boundaries?

-Ah love is a powerful feeling, it makes you have an outer body experience where you actually can go crazy for someone. It can surpass any boundary that you can have as a person. For example, me and my fiance are both different when it comes to our culture and religion...most people would be like wow I wouldn't be able to marry someone that's so different...well I say that's bull. Once you fall in love with a person, their is no stopping them. My love for him has surpassed any boundary I've had to the point of standing up to my family just to prove that love can change everything...so your answer can only be found if you are actually in love and can go against people or things that you love.

Hope I answered the question well! lol Thanks :)

Take Care,

Stephanie here. The crazy one?

You will be proud to know that I am volunteering at my public library and I just got through with my first day in Circulation (finally!)

Let me tell you, the urge to stop and read a book you're about to shelve is automatic and forceful. Even when I work at the Children's section, I stop to sift through books (shame shame!)

I knew I had to get this book when it popped up on my little cart of books to shelve. So I shelved it and returned to it with the drive of a star-crossed lover after my shift.

Sundays at Tiffany's made me cry. hard. I got it today and I finished it today. It is a book worth reading and I am going to read all of the books by this author in hopes of catching another ride on the magical euphoria train.

Thank you. I got back in my reading groove and it would not have been so without you and my friendly library.

Sorry about not posting an entry. I'm still very unoriginal and bland at the moment.

still have so very much to say and thank you about,
