Upcoming Sarah Dessen Contests: We Need Your Input!

Sarah Dessen is hands down my favorite author, and I am beyond excited that Along for the Ride is coming out next month. I've known for a while now that I wanted to feature Sarah as the Author of the Month for June, but I kept thinking what could we do a little different? Then a crazy idea came to me that I've been sloshing around in my head for a couple weeks now. And I'm calling it:


Sarah Dessen Extravaganza!

I wish I could say we'll be giving away all of her books because that would be huge-huge, but for now I'm going with 5. Plus I thought the title was kind of catchy. Two of the books in the giveaway are going to be This Lullaby (my favorite) and of course Along for the Ride. For the other three, that's where I need your input!

Which of these books do you want to see in the giveaway?
  • That Summer
  • Someone Like You
  • Keeping the Moon
  • Dreamland
  • The Truth About Forever
  • Just Listen
  • Lock and Key

I'm still going with some ideas for other things next month. That's kind of why I'm posting this now so I can be all prepared, (I kind of suck at organizing things). If any other bloggers or authors want to do a guest post about why you love her books, your favorite characters(s), or just whatever comes to mind, feel free to drop us an email!

justyourtypicalbookblog@hotmail.com

    More details will be posted soon!

    Thanks!
