Belated 100th Post Contest!

EDIT: I have decided to change it so you can pick TWO books out of the pile of books I'm offering if you give a shout-out on your blog, facebook, or whatever, just send me a link.

So I just realized I reached my 100th post, yesterday I think, and I didn't even realize it until now! So I figured, why not have a contest? Great idea, right? So here's the details.

All you have to do is comment on this post with your email address, I will try to confirm it with you. I would also like it if you could tell me your favorite book and your favorite author, for recommendation reasons, I'm running out of books to read.

The contest will run about two in a half weeks. The deadline is Friday, September 5th at midnight EST. I can only ship in the US, sorry!

Now for the prize. I have six books on my bookshelf in very good condition that I doubt I will reread. So you will have a chance for winning your choice of one of those. Some of the books are ARC versions also. The books are:
  • ARC Version-Chloe Doe by Suzanne Phillips
  • I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
  • Such a Pretty Girl by Laura Wiess
  • ARC-The Big Game of Everything by Chris Lynch
  • ARC-Jet Set by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman
  • Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
So you will be able to chose which of these books you want.

Comment on the review for the books and you get another entry.
Announce it on your blog, facebook, whatever, another entry for each just give me the link.
Make a banner saying Reading Keeps You Sane and my url, and paste it on your blog, get five extra entries.

So that's about it.



  1. Ooh! Enter me please! I'd love to own just about all of those books.

  2. Hey Kelsey! Congrats on you one hundredth post! That must be very exciting! Great contest as well, those are some pretty awesome books you have there!


  3. Awesome contest! I'd like to recommend the Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer. They're AMAZING and I'm almost positive you'd love them. If you haven't read them already, of course. :)

    Thanks for the contest!


  4. Great contest! I'd like to recommend The Truth about Forever and Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen, They're amzing books!


  5. Awesome contest =D

    The book I wanted to recommend is Sarah Dessen, and I'm sure you've read all of hers.

    So, I'm going to recommend... The Host. And Violet on the Runway. And Chasing Windmills. (Sorry I'm too lazy to look back on your reviews and see if you've read any of these already...)

  7. If you haven't read the Violet series by Melissa Walker then you should definitely read those. They're fabulous. But if you have, then I'd recommend either Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt or Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel. They were my two favorites out of all the books that I've read this summer.


  8. i recommend the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare (unless you've already read those), and then i recommend Wake by Lisa McMann. but you've probably read that, right? oh well, i cant think of a good book that you've probably not read. :(

  28. Oh, forgot my email: musicalmanya@yahoo.com

  29. I would like to enter this contest.

    Does the link banner thing count if I made a button for your site and put it on the main page of my website? I don't have a blog, well, I started one but haven't done anything with it in over a month. But I did link to your blog on my site: http://www.geocities.com/webpainter_one/

  30. Oh, oops. I forgot to mention the book recommendation. I recommend The Gatekeepers series by Anthony Horowitz. It's one of my top favorites, and I read a lot of books.

  31. Hello!

    Let's see, my email is MrsRonWeasley87@aol.com.

    Recommendation? I can't say a favorite author or book because honestly there are far too many to choose. A lot of the ones mentioned already I would second. However to throw a less recent one at ya - try "The Woman in White" from Wilkie Collins. You don't have to love classics or anything to adore this one. Suspense! Romance! Insane plot! Awesome! :)

    Thanks for the contest!

    And check out my blog, Bibliophile Support Group, if you're interested! :)

  32. Count me in for a chance to win. Book contests are so fun - thanks for hosting this one!

    One of my favorite books is The Book Thief by Zusak. Dean Koontz and Lisa Scottoline are two favorite authors.

  33. Thanks for the contest, please enter me :) Melissa Walker and the Violet on the Runway series are my current favorite books! Definitely read the just-released Violet in Private!

  34. Hi! Awesome contest!
    My email address is cata2404@gmail.com

    And my favorite author would definitely be Meg cabot. But I'm sure you've read all books by her. So.. um, how about Fly on the Wall. Or How To ruin my Summer Vacation. That book's great.

  35. Books you should read...hmm... The Book of Luke by Jenny O'Connell is really good (I'm going to really try to get a review of it up soon)...so is Peeps by Scott Westerfeld...the other books I've been reading haven't been YA so I'm kind of blanking right now...Principles of Love by Emily Franklin? It's a series :)

    and I posted about it here one my contest list, too :)

    I'll try to make some sort of banner if I get on the computer that has photoshop

  36. superseal13@comcast.net

    fave book: I Capture the Castle

    Fave Author: S.E. Hinton

  37. to add to my previous comment, I also put a little banner in my post (it'd be in my sidebar but blogger's being screwy and I can't edit my sidebar right now)...

    and for books, you should read Two Way Street and Where People Like Us Live off your Shelfari Wishlist if you haven't already, they're both really, really good :) (I didn't see that over there last time)

  38. Thanks for entering everybody! I still need some of your emails:

    Book Spot

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Bookspot, yes those books sound good, I'm getting Where People Like Us Live from the library hopefully soon.

  39. All of these sound good, count me in! I just received Cherry Bomb by Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna, can't wait to read it! tWarner419@aol.com

  40. All of those books sound great! right now, i'm in love with the vampire academy books by richelle mead. congrats on your 100th post!


  41. I would recommend the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.Congrats on the hundreth post! :)

  42. Thanks for the contest! If I win, I'd love to have Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

  43. My favorite book is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Amazing book. It's actually about book burning, if you're interested. If you've already read that, a recent book I've read was Freezing Point by Karen Dionne. That was also pretty awesome. It's an eco-science thriller.

    I blogged about your contest with a banner here.

    Thanks for hosting the contest and good luck keeping track of the entries. xD


  44. This is my first time visiting your blog, so I am not sure what you have read other than the books I saw on your first page.

    I love Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. This is one of the few authors that I actually laugh out loud while I am reading it. She has a number theme going...starting with One for the Money and ending with the most recent, Fearless Fourteen.

  45. Awesome contest!
    I posted about it here http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=18902716&blogID=429382313
    but the banner I made didn't show up. I'll email it to you so you can see it though.
    I'm not sure if you've read them or not, but I recommend Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and Wish You Were Here by Catherine Clark. My favorite author right now is Scott Westerfeld.


  46. Hey I posted about your contest on my blog. Here's the link...



  47. Oh and I didn't mention a favorite book, woops.

    Two of my favorites are Whale Song by Cheryl Kaye-Tardiff and Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway.

    They're both amazing. I promise.

    Whale Song is a tearjerker though, just for a heads up.


  48. Great books! I recommend you reading Undone by Brooke Taylor. it is one of my favorite books ever!


  49. I would love to enter this contest. I've posted about the contest here:

    Wow. Long link. I love the Bloody jack series (LA Meyer), The Green Rider Series (Kristen Britain), all Steph Meyer, all Sarah Dessen, and Jane Eyre. For a more extended list check out: www.myspace.com/not_so_cg
