While I was at BEA and rooming with a houseful of bloggers, I got to know Emily of emilysreadingroom.blogspot.com, and while we were having lots of fun, blog-ish and book-ish conversations, she brought up the idea of a monthly commenter contest. I loved it so much, I just had to steal the idea and use it here (so, go visit her blog for another contest as well!).
How it works: I will be giving away a brand-spanking new copy of a new release that I really enjoyed, every month. and to enter, all you have to do is comment on this blog all month long! One comment = one entry, and you can comment and enter as many times as you want. The catch? No lame one-word, thoughtless, or completely random comments just to get more entries--I'll discard those.

Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt
Click here to read my review!
"On the last day of her junior year, Hannah's boyfriend Ryan dumped her. Facing a summer of loneliness, Hannah turns to her best friend Ava for comfort. Ava does what BFFs do: she stays by Hannah's side...until it's time for Ava to head up to Maine for the summer. Also left behind is Ava's boyfriend, Noah, who's such a great guy he gets Hannah a job at the diner he waits tables at. Slowly, Hannah comes out of her funk thanks to Noah's good conversation and their fun times at the diner. But things get complicated when their friendship turns into attraction--and one night, into a passionate kiss. The novel opens on the first day of senior year; the day Hannah is going to see Ava, Ryan, and Noah all in one place. Over the course of the day secrets and betrayals are revealed, and alliances are broken and reformed. In the end, everyone is paired up once again, but not the way you might think..."
Thanks so much, and I'm looking forward to all of the great discussions!
