Contest Craze Mini Challenge #1

Over at Princess Bookie contest craze began today. This is basically the Birthday Bash, but compressed into just two weeks. It sounds so cool! She posted the first Mini-Challenge today and I'm totally participating!

Here they are so far. I'm just going to be posting covers, titles, authors, and why I want them. I'll mention these in more detail in later posts.

  1. Ooo. I should've put The Dark and Hollow Places on my list, too. I have The Water Wars. But, I love that Forest of Hands and Teeth series! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I cannot wait for Outside In either, but since I could only choose 5 I couldn't squeeze that one in there. 5 is way too little!

    Here's mine:

  3. My Unfair Godmother
    Does Forever come out next year?
