Win a signed copy of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies!

51-JV%2B1%2BDSL._BO2%2C204%2C203%2C200_PIlitb-dp-500-arrow%2CTopRight%2C32%2C-59_OU01_AA240_SH20_.jpg You guys must all know about this series, right? Scott Westerfeld‘s world is so much fun to get lost in — and it’s also a great social commentary. In short, Tally Youngblood lives in a world where, at age 16, everyone is made “Pretty” with plastic surgery. So what happens when she considers rebelling? Quite a bit of adventure!
To win a copy, just say hi below and tell me about the latest book you’ve loved!
I have so much I want to write about, but it’ll wait. I’ll also announce contest winners next week, so on Monday I’ll post Monday’s winner, Tuesday I’ll post Tuesday’s winner… you see the pattern here. So keep entering contests this weekend!
By the way, my blog about Ali Michael got picked up on myspace books as the featured blog–hooray! Go comment over there if you have the inclination.
Oh and check out my mini-interview with the lovely Lisa of Pink World. She is super-kooky in a very cool way.
And a huge THANKS for stopping by and making the contests really fun this week!

    Hello ^_^
    I must say that the latest book I’ve loved is called “On Agate Hill” by Lee Smith.
    It’s a really interesting fantastical story chronically the life of a girl from a plantation in South Carolina up until her death. I think the writing style is what I love the most, it starts out as a diary of the girl, then moves into her headmasters diary at the school she attends, then a series of letters, then court record, and a finally a diary again. It’s incredibly well written and quite a fun read. I definitely recommend it.

    13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
    It’s about a girl who committed suicide and left behind cassette tapes with each side dedicated to a person who had something to do with her decision.
    The narrator is a guy who liked her, and it’s so nice to read a book from a guy’s point of view where he’s not a jerk.
    Overall, though, I just love the story, narration, concept-everything.

  3. Stephanie says:

    I’ve always wanted to read this series, so please count me in on the drawing. I just finished Austenland by Shannon Hale and enjoyed it very much.

  4. Nabi says:

    The latest book that I loved is Ophelia by Lisa Klein!

  5. Megan says:

    I think that the last book that I finished and liked very much was The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray. She’s so awesome :]

  6. Andy says:

    The Endless Knot. The whole series was pretty good.

  7. i would tell you all the books i’ve recently read and loved, but there are too many. most are up at my blog, but some are bewitching season, the squad series, wake, how not to be popular. and of course violet on the runway :D had to add that cuz it IS one of my fav books :D

  8. Sherry says:

    Hmmm, I’m going to select one of the last ones I’ve read: My Antonia. It was for school, but if I would’ve ever come across the novel previously I would’ve automatically picked it up and read it.
    It was amazing, especially considering the fact that the novel was from a guy’s perspective about Antonia (yet Cather, a girl, wrote the novel). I analyzed it, and again amazing stuff. The best part though would have to be the reason why it’s called a classic. To me, a classic is a novel that takes the reader so much into the story and characters that the reader tends to forget they’re not reading something real.
    And it was real ^_^.
    (I’ve been wanting to read Thirteen Reasons Why, it sounded so interesting).

  9. Grace says:

    hmmm…well the latest book I enjoyed I just finished a couple of minutes ago. It’s call the Final Eclipse by Lynne Ewing. Its so sad, romantic, and heartwarming-all at the same time.

  10. Hillary says:

    Hi! So, now that I’m past that, I just finished Just Listen by Sarah Dessen a few days ago. I really loved it. She’s such a great author. I always love it when the guy in the book doesn’t seem right for the girl but somehow that just go together. Like in Someone like you only they didn’t end up together (quite sadly, I like the movie more…they do) but I guess I’m into that kind of stuff. I CAN’T WAIT to get Violet by Design. It looks fabulous. Maybe this time my book store will actually have it and I won’t have to go to Philadelphia to get it!
    Yeah, and although I haven’t read it recently I have to back everyone up by saying that Thirteen Reasons Why is a wonderful book.

  11. Ink says:

    Ooh, my turn! I just finished the Tales of the Otori series, by Lian Heran, and loved it. Amazing Books. Scott Westerfield is one of my favorite authors, so I hope I win!

  12. tami says:

    please enter me to win, i would love to read this series, i hear he is a wonderful story teller,

    ninth grade slay by heather brewer

  13. Hiya! Actually I’m currently reading and just about going to finish reading Dragon’s Keep by Janet Lee Carey. To my surprise its really rather interesting as you watch Rosie wrestle with her inner self. She’s so lost in who is she is and brainwashed by her mother. That book shows so much depth its simply amazing!

  14. Irene Guberman says:

    The book I loved? Midnighters by (guess who) Scott Westerfeld!
    I MUST have the signed copy. I mean, Scott was the reason I read Violet on the Runway in the first place (You had another signed book by him and I really wanted to get it – even though I didn’t, and I ended up stickin’ around and readin’ your book).
    I’m also obsessed about Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, but I read that book ages ago.

  15. Katie says:

    some of my fav books that ive read so far are,
    - I heart you,you haunt me – sad but great
    by lisa Schroeder
    - Guitar Girl – an amazing story about a girl who dreams of being a rockstar
    - The a-list series – a cool series
    - oh and of cource Violet by design
    cant wait to see who wins the books!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Luv ya

    First I have to say that I am currently reading and totally loving Atlas Shrugged even though I am just a fraction of the way through it. I never expected
    it to be such a page turner.
    As for a book I actually have finished already I would have to say Getting Over Jack Wagner by Elise Juska.

  17. emily says:

    i read SECRETS OF MY SURBURBAN LIFE by Lauren Baratz-Logsted. it’s about a girl names Ren who’s mom was killed by a stack of Harry Potter books falling on her. she and her dad move out of NYC, and she tries to fit in in CT. in class one day she grabs the most popular girl in class [Farrin]‘s notebook instead of her own and uncovers that Farrin has been communicating with an older guy and they’re planning to meet.
    good book!

    Hi Melissa,
    I’ve just finished reading the entire Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer (which includes Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse) and I can say that I think I’m borderline obsessive now. Can’t wait for the fourth one to come out in August. Yours is the next one to read on my list, along with The Historian, I’ve heard that one’s good.

  19. The latest book I’ve loved was the Squad: Perfect Cover by Jennifer Barnes.
    It was awesome and funny

  20. jocelyn says:

    The latest book I’ve loved is, as you know from my blog, Stephanie Kuehnert’s I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone! It really is absolutely amazing. But it’s not out for a few months, so for one that’s out now, Shining On: 11 Star Authors’ Illuminating Stories is a really great collection of short stories.

  21. Meredith says:

    I just finished reading the first book in The Squad series. It was absolutely wonderful! I LOVE LOVE LOVE teenage girl spy books! I am now currently thouroghly engrossed in the second one. It’s amazing I even got on the computer today!

  22. Noel says:

    In class, I just finished The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain — I am in love with Huck.
    However, I just finished rereading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith…I haven’t read for 3 years, and I felt like I was reading it as a different person the second time around. Coming-of-age novel + a couple years of growing up = really interesting afterthoughts.
    I’m looking into reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and some classic fairy tale books next. I’m hungry for new literature and yet nostalgic for the past, when I appreciated books a lot more.

  23. Sara Hantz says:

    Saving Zoe was an awesome book…. loved Violet as well, and Guyaholic…

  24. merrygoland6 says:

    Hi, I love your blog!
    I was wondering if you could insert my link on your site?

  25. Bohae says:

    Hello, hello! I’m reading Spindle’s End by Robin McKinley right now… Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier is also a great book : )

  26. Nelly says:

    I finished reading Black by Ted Dekker a little while ago and it was amazing and a half. It’s the first in a trilogy and I’m in the middle of the second book, Red, right now.
    Books are wonderful things :)

  27. I.
    Wowsers. A signed copy! Oh gosh, now I have to think of the last book I enjoyed. I’ve been on kind of a bad run, lately.
    It was probably Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill.
    (It was really the stripper memoir by Diablo Cody, but somehow I feel icky admiting that on a blog dedicated to YA.)
    I must win.
    I must win.
    I want that signed copy more than any straight, middle aged man alive today.

  28. Katie says:

    i just finished reading STORY OF OF GIRL
    it was the most amazing book it reminded me of this guy-friend thats like Tommy
    Luv ya

  29. Stephanie Wade says:

    I just finished reading “Peony In Love” and I really, really enjoyed it. It was such an unusual and in-depth take on Chinese culture and beliefs! I read it all in about a day.

  30. Dawn says:

    I finished reading A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb this last Saturday. It was incredible! At the end I was completely in tears. I’m not usually one who is into ghost stories, but this was so much more than that, and I loved it. It felt nice to get really hooked into a book again. :)

    This is basically the American equivalent of Rockdirect, although the companies are in no way connected.
