Meg-a-Readers Week 8 + Giveaway!


Wow this week went by too fast. Next thing you know we'll be posting the final Meg-a-Readers post.
And we're only a month away from the release of The Bride Wore Size 12. Which means reviews will be going up shortly.
Shortly!


We had some awesome posts this week:

Sara from Whimsy Reviews shamelessly fangirls about Meg Cabot. Hey who here hasn't? I think I might be due for another fangirl moment myself.

And Lisa at Repeat Reads tell us about her first time reading Meg Cabot.


Now on to this week's giveaway: no it's not deja-vu I am giving away the same book Mandy just finished giving away. We made sure this wouldn't happen, but well things do happen.
Think of it as a second chance to win.

This was the first romance novel I ever read. And honestly the only reason I was able to was because someone shelved it with Meg's YA books. At this point in my reading I didn't venture out of the YA aisle so I never bothered to go looking for it myself. This was about a few weeks or so before Avalon High came out so I needed something until then, plus the way I saw it was: if I didn't take it some poor, much younger (I was 16), YA would come along think it was YA and be disappointed by it being very adult.
Alright not very, but those were the days when YA characters didn't go as far as they do nowadays.
 
I never got to the last two, I had wanted to this summer but I haven't found the mass market paperback editions I want. And for some reason I'm being very choosy about that.
 

 
 
US only.
And remember the book is signed!
