Last week, I wrote a (very long) blog post about three of the best books I read last year. One of them—Beth Revis’s fabulous debut, Across the Universe—comes out TOMORROW, 1-11-11!
If you’re still unsure about this book, no matter how much people have hyped it—or, possibly, because people have hyped it—I have ideas for you.
First, you might want to learn a little bit more about it. If so, here is a link to The League of Extraordinary Writers, a blog featuring posts by five debut authors who write YA dystopians. The link above will take you to a post with a gorgeous trailer for the book, a summary about it, ISBN numbers for both hardcover and audio versions, and a list of other noteworthy links you might want to check out.
After you check that out, and you’re STILL not convinced you want to run out to the store tomorrow, buy it, and read for the rest of the day, you can enter to win it on Liza Kane’s blog! In honor of her birthday (and mine, really, since it IS Birthday Season this month), she’s holding her first contest—and, yes, it’s open internationally—so, go check it out here! (Contest open until January 17, 2011)
If you already plan to buy the book in stores, and haven’t heard of Beth Revis’s Epic Launch Giveaway Extravaganza (not its official title, but it totally should be…), you must check it out. There are a TON of chances to win, and the prizes are awesome—sweet looking water bottles, signed hardcover copies of the book, buttons, an iPod touch nano, for example. For official information on how to win, click here. (Contest open until January 25, 2011)
Good luck and happy reading to you all!
