My Birthday CONTEST

It's common knowledge that I have one of the worst birthdays ever! LOL. As an adult, I get it. As a kid, it was no fun being born the day after Christmas. Everyone is so tired, wiped out and busy after the holiday and getting ready for New Years that the last thing they're thinking about is a birthday.

SO, this year, I'm celebrating by giving books to YOU for my birthday!! That's right. My birthday, but YOU can win.

I'm going to give TWO winners, each a copy of one of my favorite reads of the year. You can either win....

When her older sister commits suicide and her divorcing parents decide to divide the ashes, Harper Scott takes her sister's urn to the one place June always wanted to go: California. On the road with her best friend, plus an intriguing guy with a mysterious connection to June, Harper discovers truths about her sister, herself and life.


What girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though - she leads them as the captain and quarterback on her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there's a new guy in town who threatens her starring position on the team... and has her suddenly wishing to be seen as more than just a teammate.

Both these books were made of awesome!! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and be a YAtopia follower to enter. I will give an extra point of you follow my personal blog HERE, but it's not mandatory. Just let me know in the comment if you follow me too. Contest is open through my birthday on December 26th.

Ready... set... comment :)

Oh, and please add your email address to your comment :)

    And you DO have the lamest birthday. Sorry. You should celebrate your "half" years instead. You know, in June, lol.

    I REALLY want to read Saving June. Catching Jordan was FABULOUS!!

    Uh . . . You MIGHT already have my email. I'm pretty sure ;-D

  19. Happy Birthday!!!! I've got a son in December and I feel so bad for him. So from March to April, if my hubby even looks at me, he better think again!

    And I'm so in!

  20. My mother's birthday is December 26 so I know how you feel. We always try extra hard to make her feel special. I would get so annoyed on her behalf when she received birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper!

  35. Happy Birthday! I so understand your situation. My birthday is on December 28th, and it's unfair when I get a single present that's supposed to be BOTH bday and Christmas.
