Contest is ON! Book Recommendation

"Vacation all I ever wanted!" Yes, by quoting 80's music I am definitely dating myself. Even though, I am officially on vacation from school, I still seem to find myself up at 5:00am. But instead of forcing myself to wake up, I am forcing myself back to sleep. Kinda like that! 
So I am shouting YES followed by a fist pump to the fact I get to read. My friend recommended The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. She has written a must-read called Gregor The Overlander that I read to my class every year. So I had to just dive into this book. Simply amazing. There are parts in the book where I go back to reread just to get the shock and awe again. I am now on the second book, Catching Fire. With this vacation time, I'm so looking forward to finishing it. 
With that, this contest is simple. What book do you recommend to read? Yep, that's it! Post here or on the Facebook page. Win Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Energy: Orange Ginger. Contest ends Monday, December 26, 2011 11:59pm. I will even pay for shipping! Good luck and tell a friend.

  2. You need to read The Help by K. Stockett.

    The book is set in Jackson, Mississippi in 1962. ‘Where black maids (the ‘Help’ of the book’s title) raise white children but aren’t trusted not to steal the silver’ (quote from the blurb on the back cover).

    There are three main female characters and the story’s told from their individual points of view, using lots dialogue, which really brings the characters to life. This novel does what all the best books do: it draws you completely into another world, to the extent that you forget your own for a while.


    You need to read The Help - just so you can laugh at the pie scene..hilarious!

  3. Definitely finish it off with Mockingjay! It's the last in the series. The Help is awesome as well!
