Book Giveaway....

I have something to giveaway. I received a book through GoodReads. As promised, I did a review on my GoodReadspage. Now, I want to share this book with someone. Next Friday, August 7th, I will pick the winner. You can enter once a day until the 7th. (Just leave a comment...let me know what kind of books you like, say hello, tell me a joke....whatever.)

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffen.

The cheating/hurting someone else thing has been done so many times, right. At first, I didn't like the idea of it...I also know that it can be played out in many ways, so with an open mind I started to read.

Emily Giffin writes like your best friend talks. Well, not everyone gets into the same situation as Rachel, (Let's hope not!) the main character, but her voice is one you have heard. There was very good character development and enough detail without the "babbling brooks" or "her skin felt like velvet", you know what I am talking about. Real feelings and attitudes. The good girl wins and loses, gains strength and feels the pain, most of us can relate. If you can't, I still think you'll enjoy the book.

To be honest, it was because of Emily's writing that I couldn't put the book down. I was totally sucked in from the start. 322 pages of small font and I wanted more.

I love the harry potter books. Lately I have spent more time reading blogs instead of a good book. This book sounds very interesting and maybe would change that. Thanks for the chance to win.
