Winners + New Giveaway

To win a copy of Just Listen I asked everyone to tell me what their oddball music was or a list of five socks that rocked their socks and/or they could do both. I loved reading everyone's lists. The oddballs cracked me up because I saw some artists *cough Eminem cough* that are on my oddball music as well. There were some great songs on the 5 lists and some music I hadn't heard of, but I will be checking out.

Now I told everyone my oddball was Buddy Holly, but I forgot to make my list. So these five songs are ones that are currently rocking my socks because they're my mini-playlist to when I'm working on my someday-maybe-possibly-hopefully-(crosses fingers) novel.

01. Home Is Me by You Are Mine by Everly
02. Rise Above This by Seether
03. Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton
04. Songs in My Pocket by Bethany Joy Lenz
05. Sympathetic by Seether

Annnd picked the winner of Just Listen which was.....

Alexa!! (I thought it was cool that for her 5 song picks she had a song by Seether because I heart that band like no other *highfive*)

Onto Keeping the Moon where I asked to tell me one of your favorite places to go during summer. Back when I didn't have bills to pay, my favorite place to go was at my aunt's in California because it was always this huge road trip. Now....anywhere but home when I'm not being a hermit is nice.

For the winner, picked..........

For this week's giveaway:

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

Sixteen-year-old Macy Queen is looking forward to a long, boring summer. Her boyfriend is going away.She's stuck with a dull-as-dishwater job at the library. And she'll spend all of her free time studying for the SATs or grieving silently with her mother over her father's recent unexpected death. But everything changes when Macy is corralled into helping out at one of her mother's open house events, and she meets the chaotic Wish Catering crew. Before long, Macy joins the Wish team. She loves everything about the work and the people. But the best thing about Wish is Wes—artistic,insightful, and understanding Wes—who gets Macy to look at life in aw hole new way, and really start living it.


I know a lot of people have read this one, especially by the Dessen boy count, everyone loooveesss Wes. (*whispers* Dexter, people, Dexter!) It is one of my top favorites from all the other novels with all it's characters and the plot itself. Macy is so enjoyable to read and you get easily attached to her and want to stick up for her throughout the book.
