Yay! Spring is exactly nineteen days away. Softball practice begins on Friday. Our resort town is gradually waking up from its winter slumber. The bay ice is defrosting. And our summer friends are slowly making their way back to the area. But, what's this? A foot of snow is expected tonight?? Argh..  

To celebrate my second fave season, Spring, I'm giving away four books: E. Lockhart's FLY ON THE WALL, Meg Cabot's AVALON HIGH, Clare O'Donohue's THE LOVER'S KNOT, and Niki Burnham, Terri Clark, Ellen Hopkins, and Lynda Sandoval's BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO
Gretchen wishes she could morph into a fly on the wall in the boy's locker room. She gets her wish. FLY ON THE WALL is another gem from one of my favorite authors. :) 
Meg Cabot is amazing.. And AVALON HIGH is no exception. At first, everyone at Ellie's new school seem pretty normal, but soon Ellie finds out, that's not the case. 
THE LOVER'S KNOT is SOUTH JERSEY MOM'S March Chick Lit Mystery Pick. Stay tuned on Wednesday when I post the review. This one is a goodie. :) 
And finally, BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO. Filled with four amazing stories about getting dumped. I just ordered another copy because I seriously cannot part with this one. :) 

To enter to win four fabulous books, tell me about your spring plans. Is there something you are looking forward to? A dance? A sport? A production? A vacation? A new release? Or maybe the flowers and warm weather? I'm looking forward to spending some time outdoors with Kaci, the softball season, the release of my second book, CHANGE UP, and of course, the gorgeous weather. :)

Here are the contest rules: 
1. To enter to win the above mentioned books, leave a comment and tell me about a spring event(s) you are looking forward to.  
2. The contest ends at midnight on April 30th, 2009. The winner will be posted on May 1st, 2009. A family member or friend will pick the winner (including my dog at times).   
3. The contest is open to EVERYONE. Don't be shy my writer friends. :) 
4. If you post the contest on your blog, FACEBOOK, MySpace, or anywhere else, you automatically receive two entries. Last month's winner was a poster. 

Good luck and Happy Spring!!! :) 


Diana Dang said...

I am definitely looking forward to March Break. Sophomore year of high school is killing me and I just want to relax. But even then, I have a feeling I won't really have a chance to relax. I'm going to use that time and start working on a paper for a scholarship which is 1000 words long. I doubt I'll even be able to do it!

I have linked this giveaway on my blog. =)

Lenore Appelhans said...

I used to play softball. I never looked forward to playing though since I was catcher and had to wear all that equipment.

I love how the air smells in spring - so fresh!

Keri Mikulski said...

Hi, Diana! Yes, break! Ah!! :) Good luck! I'm sure your paper will be fantastic!

Hi, Lenore! Yes, the equipment is tough, especially when it's hot. :) I agree! :) Can't wait.

Unknown said...

My spring plans: finish (or at least put a huge dent in) my latest WIP! Spring break, here I come!!!

(PS: just linked this on my blog :)

OK, now, now one else enter this contest--I really wanna win!!!

Steph Su said...

I'm really really excited (and hoping) that my plans to rent a house for the summer and for the next academic year work out, so that I'll be basically living in my own house with several other friends for the next year or so. I look forward to when I can move all my stuff (and by stuff I really mean my boxes and boxes of books) into my own house, bring them out into the open and placed onto shelves! A little nerdy, much?

I have linked to this contest in the sidebar on my blog.

And thanks for the Yay for February giveaway! I can't believe I won! Ahhhhh!

Keri Mikulski said...

Hi, Beth! Good luck with your WIP!! And have fun during your spring break! :)

Congrats, Steph Su!!! Sounds like a blast! :) Love the summer!

You know, the whole candy-costumes-no school-fun thing.

Amy said...

I teach. I'm looking forward to a week long reading marathon at the beach!! I'm praying for warm weather!

Suzanne Young said...

Spring!! yay. Even though it won't be that warm, I can't wait to start camping again. We have a RV, so we just need it to ease up on the rain, and we are out there!!!!

Thanks for continuing these contests, Keri! They are awesome!

Erika Powell said...

cpullum said...

Spring my daughter is playing softball for the first time so I am excited and my high schooler is doing track and field! We are planning a trip to Disneyland for two days!! Love spring!

Meredith said...

I am soo looking forward to Spring Break in 2 weeks. I will get the week off from work and get to sleep in! Yay! I will most likely be spending my time reading and hanging out with my friends and family this spring. My older brother just got a Wii, so we are all having fun playing at his house!

I love spring - we have a trip planned to Florida and my youngest starts travel ball after practicing since January. It's nice to see green again too

Hey Keri!

Looking forward to sending Seventh Son to my favorite agents. Finishing The Tweed Coat and revamping Soul Jar.

Can't wait for flowers,warm days, and my birthday! Go Aries!


thebluerose said...

Spring events I'm looking foreward to...That's A LOT.

Geography Competition - Yup. A competition about geography. Hopefully this year, we would win. It's going to be a lot of fun.

Going Green - My school is going green. There's going to be a lot of recycling of things like cellphones and book donations.

Field Day - This is probably going to be the most fun day. There's going to be a dance, games, and lots of food! The best part is that it's right after FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test).

8th grade field trip - This is the day to look foreward to. We're going to Islands of Adventure this year! I can't wait to get on one of those crazy rides!

Principal Honor Roll Breakfast - I know I'm going to be a part of this, which is a huge honor at my school. It's awarded to students with really good grades.

Spirit Week - I can't wait to dress up. This is a week where I don't have to wear uniform, and I can go crazy on how I dress.

That's pretty much it....

I have this giveaway on my sidebar. =D

Katie said...

I am so looking forward to spring break of my senior year. I plan on doing tons of fun things with my friends like shopping and going to amusement parks. And who wouldn't look forward to a week off from school?

Anna said...

I'm looking forward to a lot of things this spring! Mostly, the warm weather -- I live in MIchigan, and the cold and snow is really getting old!

In May, I'm looking forward to my choir's trip to Toronto! It's going to be lots of fun... it feels like May isn't getting here quick enough. :)

There are also a lotttt of wonderful looking YA releases coming out this spring -- can't wait for those, either!

Posted on my contests page:


Nora said...

Mostly, I'm looking forward to the sun! This is my first winter in a place with an actual winter, and I'm definitely ready to soak up some much needed vitamin D.

Hi, Mindy! I agree. :)

Hey, Colleen! Best of luck!! ;) Keep me posted.

Wow, Lalaland! You do have a lot to look forward to! Good luck at your competition. And the eighth grade trip at Islands of Adventure, Spirit Week, and a field day - nice! ;) Enjoy your breakfast and going green - what a great idea! :) Have fun!

Hi, Katie! Sounds like fun!! You reminded me of my senior year spring break. :) Enjoy! And thanks for linking. :)

Hi, Hope! You're right! There are a ton of great releases! Have fun on your trip and enjoy the warm weather. :)

Hi, Nora! Yes, I agree.. What did you think of winter?? :)

Jenn said...

For spring break im just looking foward to hanging out with my friends, going to movies and of course to shop!!! I wish I could be going somewhere where its hot and not cold like where i live.

Kelsey said...

I'm not really excited for anything this spring. My high school doesn't have a spring break and we don't even get a day off! So I have to go to school those twenty days while everyone is out in the sun having fun!

But something I am looking forward to is warmer weather. I live in the Icebox of the nation where we have four feet of snow and negative weather. So I would love the warm weather even if it melts the 4 ft of snow and we get flooded. :)

jocelyn said...

I'm looking forward to my spring break, which is easter week off! Plus, putting away my winter coat and getting out tank tops and flip flops :-)

Unknown said...

I love forward to spring because I can sit outside anytime I want. I have a nephew who loves to play outside and I have 3 dogs. It'll be nice to see them running around in the sun together.

Yay! I can't wait for the warm weather to arrive so I can roll all my windows down and drive with the music turned all the way up. We're going to the beach in June, too, and I'm going to start helping my best friend plan her wedding. I'm looking forward to all of those things! :)

Thanks for the chance!

I can't wait to spend a little time outside with my garden. And I've started running. Which is WAY out of character for me, but it's actually been fun so far.

-.- said...

While I'll miss the snow from Winter, I think the thing I'm looking forward to is taking some pictures. I got a new camera last year, so I'm hoping to go out more and take pictures of the birds and flowers. They won't be the best pictures, but I'll have fun taking them anyways. :)

I've also left a link of your giveaway on my blog. It's on the sidebar under the header Giveaway List.

Reyna Meinhardt said...

Spring has finally begun to come! It is starting to get warmer out up North (40 degrees!) and the ground is thawing, plus, if your lucky, you can start to see the sun peeking out between the many gloomy clouds have have filled the sky since Winter. All of these things give people, including me, spring fever. However, the thing that I am looking forward to the most this spring is being able to ride my one and only favorite horse in the world, Bailee, in a dry pasture without freezing my fingers of while doing so, and worrying about the bit being to cold in her mouth! Another thing that I am excitedly waiting for is being able to read all of my wonderful books out in the sun on the deck, or sitting in the shade in the woods reading one! I am also looking forward to swimming in the murky lake 1 minute away from our house! You can tell that I'm excited for spring! Haha!

Hi Keri! Thank you for this giveaway, it's totally awesome of you!

My favorite spring event just ended today. Every year during April, there's this GINORMOUS book fair in my town, with used books and new books and old books and amazing books and not-so-amazing books and dirt cheap books and books enough to make a girl very very happy for the rest of the year, almost. I've been living here for three years and haven't missed a single one yet! =) Needless to say, this year's haul was as amazing as ever! (31 books in less than 13 dollars! I am beyond ecstatic!)

I posted a link to this giveaway on the sidebar at my blog:

Can't wait to hear more about your new book!
