SPRING CARNIVAL



It's here! The Spring Blog Carnival hosted by the folks at Pure Imagination.

It's all about books, books, and more books! over 200 blogs participating, all with their own theme and reading related giveaway.

Consider my tent one of Miscellaneous Uproar ....

 So welcome! See what's up for grabs. All you have to do is leave a comment and you're entered. Giveaway runs through May 8. And if you're not already a follower, I'd love to have you, but it's not required to win. :) Also, if you'd be so kind as to LIKE the FLOAT (For Love Of All Teens) page on Facebook by clicking here. Help spread the word and encourage teen self-esteem.

First up:

Women's Fiction novel, THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS by Meg Waite Clayton

A delightful read about, well, women who read. Imagine that!

Women's Fiction novel, ANGRY HOUSEWIVES EATING BON BONS by Lorna Landvik

Another story about women who read, and it's a lot of fun.

I also have two official bookmarks for the upcoming release, POSSESSION, by Elana Johnson

as well as

Three official bookmarks for Tom Greenwald's upcoming Mid-Grade release, CHARLIE JOE JACKSON'S GUIDE TO NOT READING.

So leave a comment by May 8 on this post for a chance to win one of these prizes. Open internationally.

On a side note, a big thanks to Elizabeth Mueller for awarding the A to Z bloggers with this lovely commemorative piece :

 If you participated, stop by her blog and get one for yourself. Everyone wins! Tomorrow's post will include my final thoughts on the A to Z challenge and will be left up for a few days for the A to Z Reflections bloghop, as well as the Spring Carnival giveaway!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a lovely Sunday, and many wishes for an outstanding week. :)

Great carnival! Thanks for doing this. And those books. WOW! I'm reading POSSESSION right now. Well...not right now, cuz I'm talkin' to you, right now.

I was going to do my final thoughts too, but I'm trying to write a picture book a day for NAPIBOWRIWEE so there's no time. I do get poddy breaks. *wink*

Carla White said...

Thanks for offering such lovely prizes. Those books sound like they'd be easy to relate to. :)

Nice to meet you PK. I am certainly open to an exchange of MG WIP's. I am impressed that you are heading into another blogfest! I think I'm going to focus on checking the rest of the A-Z bloggers all 1200+ and continue posting 5 days a week.
