Melina Marchetta Giveaway

I am sure that it comes as no surprise to any regular reader of this blog that I have a special place in my heart for Australian authors – especially author Melina Marchetta.  Her books have a beautiful realness to them, and the characters are unforgettable.  I recommend her books to everyone (whether they have asked for a recommendation or not ;) ).

I would like to share some of my love for Melina’s books with you!  I am giving away FOUR of her novels to one lucky follower who lives in the United States or Canada.

I am so excited to share these books with you!  You will win Looking for Alibrandi, Saving Francesca, Jellicoe Road (one of my top 10 favorites of all time) and her foray into fantasy, Finnikin of the Rock.

Please fill out the form below to enter.  The contest will run December 11th through December 31st.  I can’t think of a better way to start 2012 than by reading these phenomenal novels!

**Fine print:  You must be 13 years or older and the winner will be chosen by a random number generator.  You must be a resident of the United States or Canada for this particular giveaway. A special thanks also goes out to Parajunkee Designs who created an awesome tutorial for Google Docs (which sadly didn’t address what to do when my form kept showing up in Italian ;) ) and the fabulous Liz @ Midnight Bloom Reads who shared the link!

About Jen

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to read. I have always viewed words as having a magical quality-able to transport, illuminate and inspire. I was able to parlay this love of reading into a career as a language arts teacher and am able to encourage students every day to find books that “speak” to them. I decided to blog about the books I read because books are meant to be shared and discussed. 🙂
