I Made It to 50 Celebration and Contest!

I am now halfway through my 100 book challenge! Yay! To celebrate, I'm giving away a copy of Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor, my 50th read.

I still have 50 YA or MG books to go in my reading challenge, so for a chance to win the book, all you need to do is include a comment with the name of a MG or YA book you recommend.

The contest closes May 30th. Winner will be selected by a random draw.


  1. Sweet! Count me in!

    I would recommend The Hunger Games for YA and The Garden of Eve for MG. Both are 100% winners!

    Grats on getting 1/2 way!

  2. Wow! I'm soooo impressed. Fifty?! (she says shaking her head in awe...) Okay, here's my recommendations: Before I Die (YA). I also really enjoyed When You Reach Me - even though I figured out the mystery before the end. (MG)

  3. Thanks for the book recommendations! Your definitely entered in my contest. Angela, I've never heard of The Garden of Eve, so I'm off to look for that one!

  4. Awesome contest. I'd like to enter please. I would recommend:
    YA = All American Girl by Meg Cabot
    MG = The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman

    Also, congrats for making it halfway in your journey of books!

  5. Yeah! This is so exciting. I'm really impressed with your drive.

    For YA: Hunger Games- wow, I just loved that book. Although I really loved the intensity of Forest of Hands and Teeth but again I had a hard time with the MC. I think that's why I liked Hunger Games because Katnis was such a fighter and I felt like in Forest the MC was kind of whimpy.

    MG- City of Ember, oh and I liked Holes and Chasing Vermeer, and The Thing About Georgie, and Pish Posh!

    Okay, I need to stop thinking because this is way too much fun.

  6. I'm reading Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall which I love so far so that's my YA recommendation.

    As for MG I loved Book of A Thousand Days by Shannon Hale.


  7. Christina, Lydia and Lesly, thanks for the recommendations. You're definitely entered!

  8. Ooh, I just found your blog and what a happy surprise, it's contest time! Congrats on 50... wow... I'm lucky if I get to finish a book in a month or two with work and my kids, lol. :)

    Recommendations - definitely The Hunger Games, I liked When You Reach Me also. Some others - Lips Touch (Three Times) by Laini Taylor, Briar Rose by Jane Yolen. Also loved The Thirteenth Take which is adult fiction but I loved it :)


  9. Hi Lindsey, thanks for stopping by! You're definitely entered in my contest. Thanks for the book recommendations!
