Blogiversary & New Contest


Wow I can't believe I have been blogging a year! I first started blogging back in March, which is the same time I started reviewing books for TeensReadToo.com My blog was born out of a way to keep track of the books I read, even the ones I didn't review for TRT, so I could go back to them when I needed good book suggestions and booktalk ideas. Now I have followers, author interviews, contests and tons of books to read, plus an awesome community of book lovers that I'm so glad I connected with!


So, to say thanks for making this blog a wonderful success, I am hosting a new contest!! The contest will run between now and April 1, to celebrate the start of a new blogging year.

I am giving away three prizes this time.

The grand prize is a pack of books (the first three books I ever reviewed on my blog) and a $10 gift card to Amazon.com The books are:



The Wedding Planner's Daughter by Coleen Murtagh Paratore

Saving Zoe by Alyson Noel


Second & Third Place Prize: $10 Gift Card to Amazon.com


So, how do you enter? (Much like always!)


+1 for every comment you leave between now and April 1st


+1 if you leave me a comment on this post telling me about a book blogging I need to check out and add to my list of blogs to read (can be your own)


+2 for following my blog


+3 if you post about this contest somewhere else


Open to U.S. residents only please


Thanks for being so awesome and good luck!! Winner will be posted April 2.
