Contest: Win a Jenny Valentine/Cathy Hopkins WBD Book

In honour of today being World Book Day in the UK and Ireland, I have my first contest! I have two copies of the Jenny Valentine/Cathy Hopkins WBD book to give away, which includes the short stories Ten Stations and Mates Dates: the Secret Story.

Jenny Valentine is a brilliant UK author, and even though this story is short, it's well worth reading. Fans of Finding Violet Park (or Me, the Missing and the Dead) will love it!

To enter, just comment on this post telling me the best book you've read so far this year. This contest is worldwide, and will run until Sunday, March 15th.

Good luck!

Oh, I want to win! I haven't yet had the chance to read anything by Jenny Valentine but I've heard great things (from you). Also World Book Day just sounds like a fabulous idea to me. Apparently it is not celebrated worldwide, though, because I have seen no such celebrations here. Anyway. The best book I've read so far this year...Well, not counting rereads from previous years (of which several, like Bloomability and This Lullaby, were wonderful), probably Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols.

So far it has to be The Horse and his Boy by CS Lewis from the Chronicles of Narnia. Close second is the Cirque du Freak books though. great contest!

Have I told you how wonderful you are? Seriously, Jenny? Well, my favorite read this year is still The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. A couple others have come close, but I can't think of them yet.

World Book Day is such a great idea, more countries need to practice it.

My favorite book so far this year was Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey.

It is a tie between North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley and Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols. Both were outstanding!

Best book so far? I'm going to say I Know It's Over, by CK Kelly Martin

Erin said...

I just read Me, the Missing and the Dead and LOVED IT SO MUCH. In fact, I think that's my favorite book I've read this year so far. :)

the book i've read is called the butterfly tattoo
this book is good because its very interesting and every thing is unexpected. this book is about a boy who falls in love with the girl he's going to kill but the twist is he doesn't mean to kill her, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Best book so far is Paper Towns by John Green.
