Three Week Read (Contest and Giveaway!)

UPDATE: I have added the links for the post where you can comment with your book recommendations!


 

Alrighty folks! Since I’ve finished my manuscript (at least the second draft), I’ll be taking a three week “hiatus” from writing. I’d like to go back to my manuscript with fresh eyes so I can catch new problems. That being said, I need something to do during the three weeks! So from now until July 19th, I’ll be doing a Three Week Read, where I have three weeks to read as many books as I can!

So to make Three Week Read something fun for you guys too, I’ll be taking your suggestions as to which books I’m going to read, and at the end of the Read, I’ll be giving away a copy of one of the books I’ve read to one lucky follower!

The rules are simple:

1) Like/Follow me on Facebook/Twitter.
2) Submit your book recommendation in a comment both on this post on Facebook and here, on my website. One recommendation per person!
3) Vote on a poll at the end of the Three Week Read to pick which book you’d like to win!

Suggest your favorite YA books (of any genre) for it to be added to the list of books for the Three Week Read! They can be in either print or ebook, but must be able to be acquired legally.

U.S. residents only. You must be comfortable in giving me a address to ship the prize to (all information will be kept confidential and guarded by a dragon).

I’ve realized I’ve been neglecting my growing library of books recently (mostly in favor of writing or schoolwork. Sometimes tumblr) and I’ve decided to kick myself in the butt and then sit down and get some reading done. After all, the best way to improve your own writing is to read a lot.

So last night, amid a chorus of tears and choking sobs, I finished Marie Lu’s wonderful conclusion to her Legend series,Champion. And let me tell you, feels were had and I’m still not over it. Full review to come!

I also have Patrick Rothfuss’s Name of the Wind sitting on my desk that I plan on focusing my attention on once the semester ends. My significant other has been hounding me to finish the book, and if they think it’s good and that I’d like it, I should finish it within a few days.

Though I’ve been devouring Rick Riordan’s The Lost Hero since last night, and since I loved the Percy Jackson series, I have no doubts that the Heros of Olympus series will satisfy and entertain me.

Sitting on my Kindle, taunting me with its pretty cover every time I open up the app on my phone to do some quick reading/highlighting/editing of my manuscript is Sarah Godfrey and Victoria DeRubeis’s book 2 of their Marionettes of Myth series, Fracture the Spider’s Web and I want to crack it open ASAP.
