It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 05/17/2010 + Song Quest Signal Boost + Winner of Crossing Giveaway

(meme from Book Journey)

....... I feel like I've done nothing but read Demon's Covenant. Which was a great novel, but basically it ate my brain. I blame it for my unproductiveness. But I think I'll manage to pull myself together this week. Somehow.

Completed Reads:
Half a Yellow Sun
Marcelo in the Real World
Princess Ben
Scarlett Fever
Demon's Covenant
Demon's Lexicon (reread)

Planning on Reading:
Crazy Diamond
Code Talker
Deloume Road


Signal Boost: Becky from The Bookette is hosting a Song Quest Blog Tour in order to get this lovely book back in print. I love this book very much and it was one of my many formative YA fantasy novel reads, and it'd be awesome to see some support! Here's my review promoting the book, and if you're in the UK, Becky is still taking in people who may be interested in being part of the tour, so please consider checking it out or recommending the tour/book to your friends, etc. 8D


The Winner of Crossing is Melissa Pham. I've sent you an email. Please reply within 48 hours or I'll be forced to pick another winner.

It looks like you've had a great reading week. I am looking forward to seeing what you think of Marcelo in the Real World; it's one of my favorite YA novels. :)

Andrea said...

Love those books that gnaw at your brain. I'll have to check that one out!

Melissa said...

Hi, I'm Melissa Pham.

I literally screamed when I scrolled down the page and saw my name in bold XD ...and then I started flipping out because I realized that I never got an email yesterday [or today] about winning any contest.

I'm not sure if your email went to my spam because I cleaned it out yesterday and I never bother checking them. Now I really regret not posting my info in the comments of your contest post to justify my info because this could be any random person posing as the winner, but if you could just send me another email or verify the answers and info I gave you for your contest, before picking another winner, then I would really appreciate it because I would really like to read [and own] Crossing. ^^

For the contest, I said that my name was Melissa Pham, my email was, and my favorite Chinese band was Super Junior M because I'm biased like that and love all Super Junior groups [or something like that :P].

Anyway, if this reaches you in time, thanks for hearing me out.
