Pay it Forward Giveaway Hop (INT)


Welcome to the Pay it Forward Giveaway Hop: all blogs are celebrating by giving away something they LOVE and feel deserves more recognition. It's being hosted by Adam of Roof Beam Reader and myself! It was really difficult to figure out what I wanted to give away...since so many things I love deserve more credit, but I finally decided on an author!


One of my all-time favorite books is Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert. It's wonderful and intense and beautiful and heartbreaking and full of real-life issues and musical references and it's just something I feel more people should read.


But if you have read this book, then maybe you want Stephanie's other awesome book that was her debut, I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone.

Since my giveaway is international, I'm going to offer YOUR CHOICE (click this link to find the books and summaries) of either of these books from The Book Depository (as long as your country is listed on the site).

To Enter: Which book would you want to read and why?

Open to: International, as long as TBD ships to you!

Ends: 12:01 A.M. on Saturday, June 30th!

Extra- if you want more entries...

I would like Ballads of Suburbia basically because I wasn't interested in I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone as much. This one sounds more interesting to me.

I liked the reviews of both books. I pick Ballads of Suburbia as I identify with the main character. And I am glad for the last line in the review expressing hope for the future.

Thank you for this fantastic giveaway.

I already have Ballads of Suburbia, and I'd love to read I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone, which I don't own. I enjoy books with music references.
