Can I Earn Too Many Teen Points?

A few weeks ago I won a contest at To Read or Not to Read. Marcia allowed me to choose three books from a wicked list. Today my goodies arrived! Thank you Marcia!

So what did I win?

These are book three (3) and four (4) of the House of Night series. I requested these two books with my daughter in mind. Though I own the first two books, I’ve not read them. However, my daughter is in the process of reading Marked, which she says is pretty great. She also is hoarding the second novel, Betrayed, which I won Bloody BookaHolic a while back. Now she has these to start as soon as she finishes.

Okay. I’ll be honest here. I’ve never read Jane Eyre, though I own the novel. I’ve only seen a version or two of the movie. I have read an alternative version of Jane Eyre called Jenna Starborn though. Anyway, I’m intrigued by classics and want to get into reading them. I just haven’t found the motivation yet. Though Jane Eyre’s Daughter isn’t a classic, I’m still hoping to enjoy it some time soon.

These titles are available at the Book Depository!

I’ve also added Tsunami Blue. I’ve entered a couple of contest to win this book and haven’t prevailed. I want it! Here’s your chance to win it also. 🙂

A Touch of Dead by Charaliane Harris

UPDATE 6/25/2010: We reached a wonderful milestone! 25 followers. Best of all we get to add another winner! Odd thing about it though, there aren’t many comments, which means few participants. So guess what? You’re chances of winning are improving. 🙂 Good luck everyone, and keep spreading the word!

UPDATE 6/26/2010: With the end of the giveaway drawing near, we seem to have a slight influx of followers. Happy excitement, cause we hit 30 and get to add another book! chose Lucky number post 13! Marlene Breakfield suggested Blood Song by Adams. Wicked awesome cover.

Blood Song by Cat Adams

UPDATE 6/27/2010: Wow! 40 followers! I’m beyond amazed. And I’m giddy about this next book. I want it! chose post number 29. Gaby requests The Darkest Lie by Gena Showalter. I might have to do some double ordering, cause I just can’t see purchasing a copy without getting myself one too!

The Darkest Lie by Gena Showalter

DISCLAIMER 6/28/2010: Is it too late for this? I feel like I’m cheating adding something after the fact. I can’t help myself. We’re so close to 50 followers I’m afraid it’ll come and go without something special happening. ~~I reserve to modify the contest as I see fit.~~ There. I did it. Now! If we hit 50 followers I’m adding an additional prize to celebrate the event. In addition to the 25 follower rule wish list winner, another winner will receive a book of their choice worth up to $15 from the book depository. It can be from the wish list or not. Whatever you decide. So, we’ll add 2 winners at 50 followers, not just 1!
