In honor of October, I'm giving away a record breaking six books: Julie Kenner's entire Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series, John Green's An Abundance of Katherines, and Gennifer Choldenko's Al Capone Does My Shirts.
The best selling Days and Nights of a Demon Hunting Soccer Mom fantasy suburban adventure series follows Kate Conner as she battles demons and juggles a family life. Filled with suspense and fun, this edge of your seat series includes four books: Carpe Demon, California Demon, Demons are Forever, and Deja Demon.
Although, John Green's An Abundance of Katherines isn't Halloweenish, I had to share it with everyone. Green's voice is amazing and An Abundance of Katherines is an entertaining coming of age novel. Thanks, Kaitlyn for the recommendation. :)
What's October without a novel with a spooky setting? Moose Flanagan is forced to live on the prison island of Alcatraz during the 1920's. Al Capone Does My Shirts is another book my students consistently raved about. Therefore, the novel I'm giving away is loved.
Can you believe Halloween is a measly thirty days away? I enjoy Halloween because it signals the beginning of the holiday season. Plus, I love trick or treating with my daughter and helping her choose her costume. This year, we're even dressing up the dog. :) Even though, I'm a bit too shy to go all out on Halloween, I absolutely love answering the door and walking the streets to witness others wearing amazing duds.
To enter to win October's giveaway, all you have to do is share with me your favorite costume of all time. If you don't celebrate Halloween or you don't have a fave costume, just tell me what you like best about October.
My fave costume of all-time is my Star Wars Princess Leia costume I wore when I was seven. My mom created the white dress with the matching white boots, exactly like the movie. And she wrapped my blond hair in those crazy side buns. I carried my brother's water gun. Tons of fun.
Here are the contest rules:
1. To enter to win the above mentioned six books, leave a comment about your all time favorite costume or your favorite thing about October.
2. The contest ends at midnight on October 31st, 2008 and the winner will be posted on November 1st, 2008. My daughter or dog will pick the winner.
