Reading Resolutions Giveaway Hop

What a better way to begin a brand spanking new year than with a giveaway hop. Thanks to Candace at Candace's Book Blog, Lori at Pure Imagination, and Angel from Reading Angel for hosting. This Giveaway hop begins today and runs until midnight on January 9. Please make sure to stop by all of the other participating blogs listed below.

ReaderGirls have decided to do some organizing and put together a nice box of contemporary YA titles as our prize. As winter continues there may ne some snow days we can take advantage of by catching up on our reading. These books would be great to read cuddled up somewhere warm with a mug of hot cocoa. Our box contains: 

A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker (ARC).

Summary: When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life canat get any worse. Then she marries her ahusbanda: jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fionaas long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very mysterious Johnny Mercer.

Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.

You've Got Blackmail by Rachel Wright (ARC).

Summary: Lozzie Cracknell is a girl on the edge. Her parents have recently separated; she forgot to mail the invitations to her mum’s super-important client party; the school bully is out to get her following an unfortunate e-mail incident involving Photoshop and a picture of a horse’s behind; and now it looks like Mum might be dating her English teacher, the utterly loathsome Mr. Hilary Barnett.

Just when she’s got about as much stress as she can handle, Lozzie and her best mate Dex stumble upon a tantalizing mystery—it seems Mr. Barnett is being blackmailed. But who on earth would blackmail a bore like him, and why? As they delve deeper into the mystery, questions pile on top of questions, and the one thing that does become clear is that danger can lurk in totally unexpected places . . .

Packed with irresistibly quirky characters, startling twists, and laugh-out-loud humor, this breathlessly paced comic mystery is all but impossible to put down.

Things You Either Hate or Love by Brigid Lowry (ARC)

Summary: Fifteen-year-old Georgia has to get to the Natural Affinity concert. She's obsessed with the lead singer, Jakob, and will do anything it takes to see him live. However, there is one major obstacle standing in her way: money. To earn some extra cash, she takes on a string of disastrous jobs, one ending worse than the next. Georgia also struggles with her weight, slipping grades, her lack of a boyfriend and the distance that seems to be growing between her and her best friend. Add to all that the tension with her mother, and life really starts to get complicated. True to Brigid Lowry's colorful style of writing, the book is peppered with lists Georgia writes in her diary, like "Ten things you can do with a sausage besides eating it" and "Great excuses for not doing my homework." Georgia is funny, honest, far from perfect, and will win the heart of every girl who has ever pined hopelessly after a rock star.

The Amanda Project: Invisible I by Stella Lennon (ARC)

Summary: Mysterious, charismatic, and one of a kind—the only way to find Amanda is to think like Amanda.

When enigmatic freshman Amanda Valentino arrived at Endeavor High, she chose three people—Callie, Hal, and Nia—to guide her through the choppy waters of her new school. Except she didn't tell them about each other. When Amanda leaves, the three must reluctantly work together to figure out why. But once they start piecing together the cryptic clues that Amanda herself is leaving for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew about her is false. The more they dig, the mystery of where—and who—Amanda is deepens.
