Blogiversary - 7 Day Giveaway - Day Two

Welcome back to day two of my 7 day Blogiversary Giveaway!


Today, Candlewick is awesome enough to offer up three books for day two of my Blogiversary! Candlewick was the first publisher that asked me to review books and they have always been very good to me! I have been lucky enough to read some of their outstanding titles and interview talented authors. During TLA they invited me to a swanky cocktail party honoring one of Austin's favorite authors, Cynthia Leitich Smith. We had a great time and I can't wait to see most of them at ALA in just a few days. They have always been very generous with their books for tours, and I appreciate them.

THREE lucky people will one of these awesome books published by Candlewick (covers will take you to Goodreads). Three bonus entries will be given if you have already (before today) commented on the Angel Burn and The Piper's Son reviews. It pays to comment around here! ;)

    Meg Cabot! She seems like such a fun person, and I'm sure it would be a blast to interview her.

  4. Wow, dream author interview? Anyone! Lol, but seriously, that's a tough question! I would be honored to host any number of authors on my blog. I think the top of my list right now would be Gayle Forman. If I Stay and Where She Went were...WOW.

  5. Well I'd love to host any author interview on my blog as they are always a pleasure. But I would love to have Neil Gaiman on that would be fantastic.

  7. Oh, what a giveaway! I'd love to interview Melina Marchetta and pick her brain about Jellicoe Road. That book is pure magic!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Definitely Francesca Lia Block. Even then I wouldn't know what questions to ask her.

  9. There are many authors that I would LOVE to interview, picking just one would be hard. I'l like to say Stephenie Meyer because a.) Twilight is what got me reading and b.) she doesn't really do interviews anymore... but I feel like anything I could ask has already been answered. So I think I'd say Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl because Beautiful Creatures was my first post Twilight reading frenzy.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. In my dream interview, I'd love to interview Cassandra Clare or Richelle Mead, although I would't know what to ask.

  15. My drean interview would be either Laurie Halse Anderson or Tamora Pierce. Such an easy decision, just don't ask me to pick between the two.

    BTW, my "I Read Banned Books" tshirt was from an FCTE conference 2 years ago. A HS teacher from FL made and sold them. I also bought one that says "Avoid cliches like the plague." I'll try to find out if she still makes them if you're interested. I think I have a card around here somewhere.

  16. My dream interview would be with Ellen Wittlinger. I want to just hang out with her because her books are my favorites. I'd also love to interview Rachel Cohn and David Levithan!

  22. JK Rowling. Oh my god. If I could pick her brain for about ten minutes, that would be my heaven. There's no other books out there with that kind of masterful writing: especially the foreshadowing! I could go on and on...

  23. Thanks again for this, Jen.

    I would love to meet and speak with Dia Reeves. I know she's not overly comfy with things like that -- so it wouldn't have to be formal.

    I'd also love, LOVE to meet Andrew Smith in person. I've already had the chance to interview him.. but nothing beats the real thing, ya know?!

    Thanks again, doll! You rock.

  52. That's a though question. Currently, there are so many great authors writing books. At the moment, I guess I would choose Melissa Da La Cruz. I absolutely love her Blue Blood series. It seems to get a lot of mixed reviews, but I totally devour them.
