Publisher:  Simon Pulse
Publication Date:  May 25, 2010

Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer.

Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends—including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen—not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.

Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?

Title:  Forever Summer
Author:  Alyson Noel
Series:  Laguna Cove AND Cruel Summer
Publisher:  St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date:  April 26, 2011

Summer. A break from the burdens of school. Deep tans, deeper thoughts. Far away from the everyday. Closer to making dreams come true . . .

What does summer mean to you? For the two teenage girls in these two unforgettable novels, summer means being torn away from the familiar and finding new friends. A new place in the world. A new sense of self. And maybe even new love along the way . . .

When you’re having the time of your life, you never want it to end.



Both of these prize choices are paperbacks and include two books in one.


Rules:
  • This giveaway is international.  As long as The Book Depository ships to your location, you are good to go.  (You can double-check that here.)  If you're in the US, it'll likely come from B&N since I get free shipping and better tracking.
  • One entry per household.
  • All entries will be verified.  Any entry found to be falsified will result in disqualification of all entries for that participant.
  • Winner will be notified via email.  Winner will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be selected.  And, people, PLEASE check your SPAM folders...I've had to reach out more than once to some winners because they "didn't get the first email."  I don't want to, but I'm going to have to start just picking new winners.  :C
  • I am not responsible for lost packages.

And now on to the fun stuff!  You only have to follow my blog to enter, but all other entries/follows are appreciated!  :D


Now that you've entered here, be sure to check out the nearly 100 giveaway stops on this blog hop:
