One thing to know about me that Hyped books.. scare me off. Make me nervous, give me the willies… take your pick. Usually when a book starts to make its rounds and gain a lot of discussion, I slowly back away. Or run, depends on my mood.
Yet. I feel like I MAY BE truly missing out. Let’s just say there are some that I have went back and read and kicked myself something fierce for not reading it sooner. SHAME. There will be conversations with some of my friends around the book and they’ve all read and loved. They are so passionate about it, and it gives me pause.
Why do you love this book so?!
In one hand, I’m all. “Whelp, so many love it, there’s gotta be a dang reason, yeah?“ While the other part of me is all, “But. HYPE.”
Not to mention,
some a lot ALL of these Hyped books are pushed on me so hard. In any case, this where the idea of CONVINCE ME TO READ was born. And where YOU come in!
Here’s how it works
I give you 3-5 books that have had major hype and/or a lot of love over let’s say, the past 6 months – 1 year or so. You, pour your heart out and convince me why I NEED TO READ IT. Imagine I’m not a book-worm, (*snorts*) and I don’t read that much; you’re making it your personal goal to try to convince me that THIS IS THE BOOK I NEED IN MY LIFE.
Put everything you got into it. You are the sole ambassador. This is the championship and your (favorite) book needs YOU.
Easy peasy right?
I will select the book on February 2nd. This will give me time to GET the book, read the book and discuss the book. I will notify the person of whose book I chose; either by email, twitter etc. I will read it. And discuss it on the blog and credit the person whose book pushing and words convinced me to read it. There may be a giveaway, too! THEN, come mid February, I will DO IT AGAIN!
Without further ado… z’BOOKS!
Don’t see your book! Don’t stress! Convince to me to read YOUR favorite. Just make sure to leave the title and author. I would hate to get them mixed up!
It’s your time to shine… and GO!
