Weekend Book Give-Away: Between

This week's weekend book giveaway is a gorgeous brand new hardcover of Jessica Warman's (author of Breathless and Where the Truth Lies) newest book Between.

By weaving through her memories and watching the family and friends she left behind, eighteen-year-old Liz Valchar solves the mystery of how her life ended in the Long Island Sound.    

Hmmm...reminds me a bit of The Lovely Bones or Before I Fall, so if you like that trapped in limbo between life and death, "what does it all mean?" sort of thing, this should be right up your alley!

This week's question:  If you had to revisit your memories at the end of your life, which ones would you want to linger on longest?

Random drawing will take place Tuesday November 22, 2012.  Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won (I'm looking at you Macey and Nethmi!)  To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

My trip to Oregon to see Wicked with my friends, and probably all of my anime convention days. Or just the days spent at school, in Spanish and English class, playing cards when we were supposed to be studying.

If I had to revisit my memories, I would choose to linger at my younger childhood memories, the ones I can't remember. The good and the bad. I would want to see how I acted then compared to my current state of condition. I also would want to revisit my San Diego vacation. I love love love the sunshine!

Probably the ones of my family and me doing fun things together, even the little things like making snowmen and baking cake.

I think that if I were to linger on memories, it would probably be more on the little ones than the big ones. Yeah, sure, I'll miss birthday bashes and family vacations, killer Christmas parties and unforgettable Thanksgivings, but the things I'd miss most- and revisit most often- would be simple nights at home, or casual days out with friends. I can see myself with a serious nostalgic longing for those times, when all that matters is good company and an easy day.
I'd linger on probably every memory that I take for granted, really.

As always, I love all your answers. Thanks for sharing with us.

Random Number Generator picked Willowtree Girl again :D

It is not surprising, as ALL of you have won before! Tell your friends...I'd love to see more people (but can't blame you for wanting all the books for yourself ;)

Willowtree...Jackie will let you know when the book arrives :D
