. Athena's Books: Totally YA Tuesday...CONTEST DETAILS-100 FOLLOWER'S CONTEST!
Tuesday, February 9, 2010


OK. I need validation! I need support! I need followers...to make me feel like people are actually interested in what I have to say. I am very grateful for my current 59 followers...thank you so much for taking the time to go through the process and checking out my book blog.

So, here is my solution...a 100 followers contest! Once I get 100 people to officially follow my blog, all followers will get the chance to be one of 2 lucky winners (random selection) and choose any 2011 YA book (as long as the book is under 15.00). So, come join me at Athena's!

Hmmm...what would I choose if I were a winner? I work in a school district with an awesome library and I can pretty much read any book I want for free, and if they don't have it, I can have it ordered for their fiction collection. So, there are definitely books I would like to win...

My list of ARCS I hope to somehow be blessed with and/or request from my library:

Sea by Heidi King (new YA author!)
It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han (author of The Summer I Turned Pretty)

The Dead Tossed Seas by Carrie Ryan (author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth)

Wow...they all have something to do with water!

On to other news... my first Blog Award! Will tell you about this one this week and put up the award ASAP (I want to add it when I announce it)!

The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie looks good (I love the cover) and it's not summer without you looks really good also.

I'm also looking forward to this 100 follower book contest!

I just joined your followers list and am liking your blog so far-keep up the great work!

I hope you get to your one hundred followers! I know what it's like wanting more followers (I'm pretty new to blogging, so I don't have many), so I'd be really happy for you if you did get to a hundred! I hope you come and see my blog some time; it's called The Book Bubble. Good luck!!!
