In the midst of all this Arizona move crap, I wanted to bring in some fun and what more fun is GIVING AWAY BOOKS FROM two of my favorite authors in the next few posts? First up in this post is Jennifer Weiner's Best Friends Forever -- the smash hit from last year which is coming out in paperpack on Tuesday, May 4.
If you somehow missed (HOW ON EARTH DID YOU MISS IT!?!?!) the chance to read it before now, well, here's your chance because I'm giving away my ONE AND ONLY paperback copy here. And unfortunately, I've already packed up my Advanced Readers Copy from last year (I'm keeping the hard cover!) or else I would have kindly given away that one too!).
The story is about two best friends from way back when (and come on, you all have got that ONE best friend from way back when -- mine is Ann Marie from St. Patrick's Catholic School -- how many of you knew I went to Catholic school for ELEVEN years? HI ANN!!?!?) But I will tell you, I wouldn't do to Ann what Val did to Addie in Best Friends Forever! In true Jennifer Weiner fashion, Best Friends Forever takes you on a journey through friendship, love, loyalty and family that soon won't be forgotten! You'll definitely want this book for your summer reads!
So, if you want MY ONE AND ONLY COPY, simply leave me a comment about one of your favorite books of all time. IT NEED NOT be a Jennifer Weiner book. We all know we love the lady! In fact, choose a different author--I want to find a variety of books in the comment section, so I can add to my own collection and find some great new reads this summer when I'm sitting out in the 115 degree temperatures in Scottsdale!
Also, thank you so much for always stopping by, and please continue to read Manic Mommy! I'll be giving away Jen's upcoming Fly Away Home later this summer. Here are more details on what will be her EIGHTH solo book! Amazing! I have followed her from the very beginning!
FLY AWAY HOME will be published on July 13. Jen's new novel tells the story of a politician caught in a sex scandal, and the impact of the fallout on his long-suffering wife and his two daughters, one a high achiever trapped in an unhappy marriage, the other a recovering addict trying to get her life on track.

And, if you're in the Philly area, (which I used to be in, but then I moved BACK to Illinois, and now will be moving to Freaking Arizona! Holy CRIPES!) you can attend a reading of Jen's on Tuesday, May 4 WITH Wine and Chocolate!
