100 Posts & A Contest!

Whoohoo! This is my 100th blog post!

In celebration of that and the lovely people who read this, I've decided to [finally] hold my first contest. I'm giving away a brand new hardcover copy of Jay Asher's amazing Thirteen Reasons Why.

  1. I read YA because they are more real. Even the romance stories aren't cheesy. They make me understand my problems and help me escape more than adult or children's books.

    I am also a follower.

  7. Congrats on the 100th! Even though I am no longer a teen, I have never been able to stop reading YA. Maybe because in my mind I still am 16 or that some issues you deal with as a teen, never really go away.

  8. I read YA books because I am a high schooler and they focus on a lot of high school issues. It's fun to be able to read about things that you have to deal with and realize that maybe your life isn't so bad or maybe you wish your life was like the main character's. I am a follower and I would love to win 13 Reasons Why. I have read it but I borrowed it from a friend and I would love to have my own copy. Thanks for the contest!

  10. Congrats on your one hundredth post!
    I loved this book so much! Unfortunately I borrowed it from the library so don't have my own copy but of course would love to enter to try and get it. :D
    I read YA because it's so great! Also because I am a young adult so I can relate to a lot of it. I'm pretty sure that when I'm not a young adult I'll still enjoy it as much though hehehe
    Thanks for the contest!

  11. I would love to enter and I already follow! :)

    Oh, and I read YA because all of the amazing authors out there ( Meg Cabot, Sarah Dessen, Julia Hoban, Gayle Forman) create such great stories and characters, that I can defiantly relate to! Plus, YA books are extremely fast reads.

  15. I read YA books because it's more interesting to read books where the characters are your age (I'm sixteen). They're exciting and they have a whole blogging community dedicated to them!

    I became a follower.
    I put a link in my sidebar.
