Wednesday Wanderings - 7/8/09

I wander around the blogosphere and bring you what I find.

It's been awhile since I've brought you an edition of Wednesday Wanderings.  I have been busy finishing summer school, preparing for my new job as AP, and doing alot of blog tours (they all seemed to come at once).  Anyway, this week, I want to remind you about some contests I am doing here, that may have been overlooked during the 4th of July festivities.

First, a great group of bloggers and I are trying to get the word out about Stephanie Kuehnert's, soon to be released, YA novel, Ballads of Suburbia.  Please pre-order this book and get entered to win some great prizes in the Big Ballads Blitz!  Stephanie's also having a Cyber Release Party, and you are invited! 

Next, yesterday was FINALLY the release of Lisa Mantchev's debut YA novel, Eyes Like Stars.  I reviewed it here.  Vania (Reverie Book Reviews) and I are holding an Eyes Like Stars Release EXTRAVAGANZA!!!  Create a congratulatory vlog, card, note, post for Lisa and put it on your blog, then leave your link in the comments and you are entered to win some GREAT prizes!!  Also, go find Eyes Like Stars in a store near you, snap a pic and send it to me along with the city and state where you found it.  You will be entered to win a print from an Eyes Like Stars photo shoot.  You can see the prints at Vania's Life Captures.

Here are some other contests you might want to check out:

Just Blinded Book Reviews is giving away an ARC of Sarah Dessen's Along for the Ride.  To enter, tell her what you do when you can't sleep.  Ends 7/17

Alea at Pop Culture Junkie has a hardcover copy of Tempo Change that you can win.  Enter until 7/20

Liyanaland is holding a 150 followers contest.  So far, she's giving away Academy 7 and Eyes Like Stars.  More followers = more books added to the pot.  So, what are you waiting on? Go follow!!

Carrie's YA Bookshelf is giving away two upcoming YA titles - The Hate List and Beautiful Creatures.  You have until July 30th, so spread the word!

On an unrelated note, unrelated because it's not a contest.  Michelle Zink's YA novel, Prophecy of the Sisters, is due to be released 8/1, but Amazon has it IN STOCK! Go forth and order your copy NOW!!!
