There's A Book

Today, as part of Armchair BEA I’m able to share my “Most Anticipated Books of 2011” and I’m hoping you’ll be encouraged to possibly pick up one or two or more of them! In addition to that, because it’s also “Giveaway” day at Armchair BEA I have a special giveaway just for Armchair BEA participants that will be at the end of this post. So, without further hesitation on my part, the books both myself and my kiddos are looking forward to this coming year…

Just click on each cover to add these titles to your Goodreads Shelves!

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

You Are My Only by Beth Kephart

The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu and Illustrated by Erin Mcguire

Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

Don’t Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala

Everyone of these titles by an author I’ve read previously, cannot wait to read or in a few cases…I’ve already read the actual book! I can vouch for A Monster Calls, You Are My Only and Breadcrumbs; each of these three are brilliant and I know you’ll love every minute you spend reading them. As for the other three…I just cannot wait to read them!

Below are a few books my kiddos, the Turkeybird and Littlebug (and I) are eagerly anticipating!

I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

Who Has What?: All About Girls’ Bodies and Boys’ Bodies by Robie H. Harris and Nadine B. Westcott

Tumford the Terrible by Nancy Tillman

Dinosaur Dig! by Penny Dale


Because we’d hate to take all the book love for ourselves as part of Armchair BEA we’re giving away a couple of these fantastic books! In fact we’re giving away one of the MG/YA titles and one of the Picture Books! The two winners will be able to pick there choice of book, a pre-order that will be shipped as a finished copy as soon as the book is available for sale.

There will be one picture book winner and one MG/YA winner. All we ask is that you stop by the Armchair BEA site to take a look around and we’d also love to have you subscribe to There’s A Book, though that’s not a requirement.

Also, make sure to check back in a couple of hours for my review and giveaway of Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly along with some fantastic Angel Burn swag!

    Annnd by “dying to read this one” I meant carrier of the Mark. LOL! Like you would know which one I meant. Sorry, I’m such a spaz. Don’t Breathe a WOrd sounds awesome too.
