Giveaway: The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

Giveaway time! It's been a while since we've had one of these. I have a book that I want to giveaway and we're about to hit 175 followers, so what better time?

I got an ARC of Sarah Dessen's new book at TLA this year, but I've never actually read one of her books. I know, I know. What's taking me so long?! So I figured why not spread the love and decide what one of her many books to read first?

Here's the info on the book in case you don't know:

The Moon and More
Release date: June 4th, 2013
Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?

Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.
Doesn't that sound awesome? Don't you want to have it for yourself? Okay, here's how it's going to work. You'll have from today to the 26th (fingers crossed I can get it to you before it comes out) to tell me what book you think should be my first Sarah Dessen book. Whatever book the winner picks I'll order (probably for my birthday-it's the 27th just in case you were wondering) for myself and send the winner their book. Sounds fair, right? Enter below!

  1. I've only read Along for the Ride but I liked it! I definitely want to read this one!

  2. Great giveaway. I loved The Truth About Forever. I honestly tried to read Just Listen, but just couldn't get into it. Would love to read this one :D

  3. Hi!! Read Lock and Key, please!! It hurts but a good hurt

  4. Haven't read any yet but I recommended The Truth About Forever since it was the first one gain my interest months ago. Happy early birthday!! :)

  5. I don't want to enter since I picked up my own copy at tla too, but The Truth About Forever is definitely my fave Dessen novel. They're really hit-or-miss, imo, because a couple are fantastic and a couple are just kind of meh. Taf is generally regarded as one of the best so you can't really go wrong there.

  6. I love Sarah Dessen's books. My favorite is Just Listen but The Truth About Forever is a close second.

  7. Ever since I read Lock and Key, I have been hooked on her books!! Counting down the days for her book as well as Susane Colasanti's new book, All I Need!

  10. I highly recommend The Truth About Forever and Along for the Ride, two of my absolute favorites.

  11. This Lullaby is the best way to jumpstart you into reading her novels, definitely one of her bests. However, What Happened to Goodbye is my absolute favorite.
