Today I want to talk about something uber kewl. Elana Johnson has done it again. This time, she's put together a huge list of pre-pubbed author bloggers, and we're all highlighting books of massive awesomeness. Some of us are even giving them away! Whee! As if our to-read lists aren't long enough already!
Srsly. Scillius Maximus leant me a huge bag of books over the weekend (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!!!), and I said to him, "Thanks for being a bad influence on my reading addiction." And I meant it, peeps.
Wow. That was really off topic.
Anyway, I've decided to feature one of my favorite books of all time: Devilish by Maureen Johnson. I've never read an MJ book I didn't like (and I've read 'em all), but this one has a special place in my heart. Devilish is about geek girls, and cupcakes, and Catholic school, and cute boys, and demons. It doesn't get much better than that.
And you can win it.
How, you ask? Well, it's easy. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to make a Faceinhole that makes me snarf milk out my nose. The one that makes me snarf the hardest wins a free copy of Devilish, which also made me snarf milk out my nose. (Well, okay, it was actually Dr. Pepper, but the concept is the same.) You can use any combo of faces: mine, yours, MJ's, Richard Simmons', WHOEVER. Just make it funny.
Faceinhole entries can be posted on your blog and linked to in the comments, or you can email them to me at carr (dot) harr (at) yahoo (dot) com. Get your entry in by Thursday 2 PM EST, and I'll announce the winner on Friday.
And if you want to check out some more books of total awesomeness and some more opportunities to win books that may or may not involve putting someone's head onto David Hasslehoff's body, go here for the list of all participants or visit the next link in the chain: Elle Strauss!
Fantastic idea - the awesome books and the face in a hole :D
I'm worried for you. Please make sure to have eye bleach and a good therapist on hand for the next few days...
I just may throw my Faceinhole in the ring. Maybe...
You are devilish, yourself, Carrie. Now I"m going to spend all day at Face in the HOle! I love that site! :) Thanks for the rec.
Face in the Hole is fun, and my dog would like you to know that due to his lack of opposable thumbs he had absolutely nothing to do with the following Face in the Hole:
Emailed my entry to you. That site is DANGEROUSLY addicting.
Sounds like a fun read!
haha this is fabulous!
I LOVE me some MOJO book goodness!
Fiendish, Carrie. And I just might put this book on my list!
Cute boys and demons. Sweet!
I haven't read MJ yet, but I've been told to. So I guess this is my push to do it!
Awesome, thanks Carrie! =)
I've not heard of that one. Thanks for recommending it!
OOhhh...need to add this one now too!
You're lucky I have too much work to do the Face in Hole thing because you KNOW I could make you snarf all sorts of things through your nose :)
Now that is a unique entry request!
Love your contest idea! I'm adding Devilish to my tbr list. :)
Okay, I couldn't resist...
Here's my Mona Simmons:
I so want to read this book after your review. :)
Too funny! I actually read "Devilish" when I was teaching myself how to write a novel. It was the perfect guide. I love Maureen Johnson anyway (I'd read 13 Little Blue Envelopes), and this one made me an MJ addict.
This book is on my to-read list -- thanks for the review! Looking forward to following your blog :)
You just get crazier and crazier, girl! I have no idea what a Faceinhole is!1 LOL!! :-)
I'm halfway through my first Maureen Johnson book (I'm late to the party, I know) and I'm loving it!
Sounds like a great book. Thanks for the recommendation.
All right, I'll take your challenge, just because I'd love to win such an awesome book. I hope you get some major snarfage out of my FIH creation:
Sounds like fun!
Because I think http://niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com/ is so funny...
