WELCOME TO
BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S
"PROFESSOR BINGO
PRESENTS DAY"
I'M EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THIS TUESDAY'S
"PROFESSOR BINGO PRESENTS DAY" 
CHILDREN/YOUNG ADULT BOOK CHOICE IS.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
SARAH DESSEN'S
THREE BOOK BOXED GIFT SET 
BY SARAH DESSEN

JUST LISTEN
Last year, Annabel was "the girl who has everything"— at least that's the part she played in the television commercial for Kopf's Department Store.This year, she's the girl who has nothing: no best friend because mean-but-exciting Sophie dropped her, no peace at home since her older sister became anorexic, and no one to sit with at lunch. Until she meets Owen Armstrong. Tall, dark, and music-obsessed, Owen is a reformed bad boy with a commitment to truth-telling. With Owen's help,maybe Annabel can face what happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends.
 
 THIS LULLABY
 When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?
 
 THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER 
Sixteen-year-old Macy Queen is looking forward to a long, boring summer. Her boyfriend is going away. She's stuck with a dull-as-dishwater job at the library. And she'll spend all of her free time studying for the SATs or grieving silently with her mother over her father's recent unexpected death. But everything changes when Macy is corralled into helping out at one of her mother's open house events, and she meets the chaotic Wish Catering crew. Before long, Macy joins the Wish team. She loves everything about the work and the people. But the best thing about Wish is Wes—artistic, insightful, and understanding Wes—who gets Macy to look at life in a whole new way, and really start living it.

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win this boxed set of Sarah Dessen books! I used to read her books all the time and love her writing. I'm her friend on goodreads.com and love reading her blogs. I think I have read one book in this set, but they all seem interesting! This would be a great gift for my teen cousin!

I checked out Sarah Dessen's website. I love how simple and clean the website is. I was browsing through her books and I would really like to read "Lock and Key". It sounds really interesting with her living on her own for while and then coming to live with her sister she hasn't seen in years. I would like to find out how she adjusts to this new life.

I would definitely give this to my Not-So-Bebe Girl Autumn. This is her last year before college, and she loves "clean" romances. The characters in these books are around her age, and I know that she would really relate to them.

This books sound so good! Reading the "about the books" they all sound like young girls can relate to them and the experiences the heroines are going through. That is so important when trying to get young people to read. I would love to win these books for me :)!

Pamela Keener said...

She starts her novels with something that happened to her or someone she knows and builds the story from there. She says you have to veer off the story into fiction or it doesn't work. That makes perfect sense to me.

holdenj said...

I would love to win these for my daughter and I to share. (I like to keep up and read YA too!) From the synopsis of all three, it seems Dessen writes about real kids and therefore the stories seem real too.
JHolden955(at)gmail(dot)com

holdenj said...

I liked Dessen's website and was interested to learn her mom's a classicist. One of my best friend's is one too, in PA, and there aren't too many of them around! You can tell she grew up in a such a scholarly home.

I have always wanted to read Sarah Dessen's books b/c they deal with real life and relationships. I also enjoy the YA genre. And the covers are pretty.

This boxed set would be a great way to be introduced to her work. I'd like to win it for myself :).

I visited Sarah Dessen's site and really enjoyed reading her bio. Her writing is very readable and she has a great sense of humor.

I learned that she preferred waitressing to the "...whole resume/pantyhose thing." Also she has an addiction to the GAP clearance rack and black pants(11 pairs). And, like myself, she subscribes to too many magazines.

I subscribe to her blog and just signed up for her newsletter.

I read her Bio and found it very intersting, she'd be someone I'd like to know. We grew up so differently. I kind of envy the way she grew up and as she would have probably also done of me. She talks a bit about what Vhjristmas was like at her house and what Christmas was like at her friends houses. lol

I'm a YA freak, so I absorb as many YA books as possible. It helps that I know what's in them before the kinder reads them.
